Ever since I moved to Delray Beach three years ago, the events that the city puts on, and the restaurants that are contained in our little town, have been two of my favorite things about life here. I think the first place I had lunch in Delray Beach was Mellow Mushroom, the first place I had dinner was at The Office, and the first place that I had a little too much wine but way too much fun was Park Tavern 🙂 Since then, I have tried much of what Delray Beach has to offer, but I have yet to participate in Dine Out Downtown Delray Restaurant Week, which is August 1 through August 7th this year! Alas, my time has come!
This year there are over 30 restaurants participating in Restaurant Week, and some of my favorites include: Dada, The Popcorn House (fun fact, we got our wedding guest gifts from them at our wedding…they did a phenomenal job, let me know if you have questions about that!), J&J Seafood, Death or Glory, Deck 84, and Brule. A new one that I just became obsessed with this year is Craft Food Tours, which gives you an amazing tour of all of Delray Beach’s best hidden gems and special dishes from famous restaurants- this is a ‘must do’ even if you’ve lived in South Florida your whole life!
You can find the list of restaurants here, and all of them are offering either Dine-Out Deals that are $10 per person (check out Purgreens‘ Dine Out Menu….mmmmmm!), multi-course prix fixe lunches for $20 and under, and/or multi-course prix fixe dinners for under $40 per person. For those of you that know how good these places are, this is a DEAL.
It’s so easy to take advantage of it all- you can either book your lunch or dinner on Opentable, or go ahead and walk in and mention you are there for Restaurant Week- there’s no tickets needed…my favorite way to do things- quick and easy! 🙂
There’s also a list of Culinary Events at various restaurants, from Cigar tasting to Cocktail making classes here – I am looking forward to the Cocktail classes at one of my favorite restaurants of all time, Death or Glory!
Make the most of this week, it only comes once a year! Bon Appetit!
