If you consider yourself a fan of good Mexican food and occasionally give in to a shopping spree are two, now you can indulge in both at the same time. Lucky for you, Deerfield Beach's El Jefe Luchador is opening its second location in the Town Center at Boca Raton today.

Owners Mike Saperstein and Evan David have fashioned a mall food court space into a colorful attraction, a second location with possibly more like it in the works where they're peddling their affordable, gourmet-style fare. The new restaurant has been custom designed to retain the original location's kitschy charm, from the brightly-hued lucha libre wrestling masks to a neon glowing ordering counter and custom tile art mural created in collaboration with the restaurant group's E&M Munchies in-house design team.

Luigi's Coal Oven Pizza Now Open in Delray Beach

Luigi's Coal Oven Pizza opened its second location in downtown Delray Beach this month.
No additions, no substitutions -- that's what the menu at Luigi's Coal Oven Pizza says. It's a philosophy based on the rules of the Verace Pizza Napoletana, an internationally recognized group of authentic Neopolitan-style pizza makers. It may also be why business has been good enough to expand north from the restaurant's original location in Fort Lauderdale, and into Palm Beach County.

Hailing from Naples, Italy, co-owner Luigi DeMeo has brought his signature coal-fired pizzas and chicken wings to downtown Delray Beach, opening a second location this month off Atlantic Avenue, just east of the train tracks in the space previously occupied by Paddy McGee's.

Bash American Bistro Shutters Its Doors

When it comes to dining out, we can be kind of picky.

Yes, we're always willing to give things a go -- even if it sounds crazy as hell. Chicken feet; why not?

But it's not often that we find a place we absolutely love. On those rare occasions it does happen, we're there all the time.

Unfortunately, for whatever reason, some of those places don't end up staying around, and we're a little heartbroken when they leave.

We just confirmed that Bash American Bistro has shuttered its doors.

Much of the world is quickly beginning to eschew fast food. Between the ridiculous calorie counts, lack of flavor, pink slime, animal cruelty issues, and whatever else, many of us are over it.

But we're still busy as hell.

We want healthy food, quickly -- not fast food, if you know what we mean.

Brazilian Kitchen and Grill is opening its newest outpost right next to Victoria Park in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The fast-casual franchise offers health-conscious fare in a hurry.

We're all about "micro," "craft," "artisanal," and "small-batch" these days.

Whether it's cheese, tomatoes, or beer, we've made the swift from large-scale industrial homogeneity to locally produced unique products.

Sure, it's also a bit of a political statement -- we're fighting against the corporate powers that be -- but, at the end of the day we're all about the food and handmade products just taste better.

Fort Lauderdale is about to get its first local coffee roaster in the coming months. Calusa Coffee Roasters is planning on opening in June. Owner Steven Hodel recently initiated a kickstarter campaign to assist in funding.

Sheila's "famous" conch fritters
Palm Beach County residents living nearby Sheila's Famous BBQ, Conch and More food shack in Lake Worth -- maybe even the original mobile unit outside the West Palm Beach court house -- had it good. They were just minutes away from one of the area's most awesome marriages of Southern smoked BBQ and Bahamian-style delicacies.

Well, the tables have turned. Now, Broward County is home to yet another spot all South Floridians can all be a little envious of: Sheila's Conch & BBQ, which reopened a few months ago in Fort Lauderdale.
