    The Feisty Bull is one of THE best Mexican/Latin Restaurants in SoFla & that’s no Bull!

The Feisty Bull is one of THE best Mexican/Latin Restaurants in SoFla & that’s no Bull!

Hello Foodie Friends,

I was recently invited to dine at the newly opened The Feisty Bull restaurant, located at the Coral Square Mall in Coral Springs, FL. The Feisty Bull is the newest concept by restauranteur Luigi Carvelli and the Carvelli Family. With more than 20 years of combined experience in the restaurant industry, the Carvelli Family currently owns and operates The Feisty Bull, DaVinci’s of Boca, and several Marco Island, Florida venues.

Under the direction of designer Megan Carvelli, The Feisty Bull brings together a variety of personally curated elements to create a warm, fun casual dining atmosphere. The restaurant’s overall design features earthy shades of red and orange, reminiscent of the Mexican and Spanish cultures, complimented with authentic wood accents and hints of lime green. Focal points include vintage-style chandeliers, patina copper bar tops and a large hand-painted logo that adorns the front wall. The Feisty Bull features both indoor seating and al fresco dining, as well as two unique indoor/outdoor bars. A private dining room area featuring large family-style tables is also available for groups. (Perfect for a Denise’s Foodie Event in fact.)

So on this particular visit, I brought my Aunt with me, who has attended several of my foodie events over the years, but this was her first time accompanying me on a food review. We had a blast. Shortly after we were seated, to our surprise, Luigi was in house and stopped by to say hello and chat with us for a bit. With so many wonderful choices on the menu, I was glad to get Luigi’s input on a couple items to try. Our server was Marek and he was terrific. After discovering it was our first visit, he proceeded to let […]

Rafina Greek Taverna

Hello Foodie Friends,

Today I introduce to you Rafina Greek Taverna, the winning recipient of the Open Table 2015 Diner’s Choice Award. This sleek and stylish modern Greek & Mediterranean restaurant strives to serve the highest quality & freshest ingredients at reasonable prices.

Born out of their love of fine wines, craft cocktails and delicious food, the owners of Rafina have created what is fast becoming the premiere location for fine dining in South Central Boca Raton. Rafina’s success can be attributed in part to finding the right, high-quality ingredients and their dedication to serving only the finest and freshest foods. They have also taken great care in assembling a team of great chefs, a master mixologist, and experienced kitchen & dining staff.

I had the opportunity to dine at Rafina’s recently and am excited to share with you my experience. It was a Sunday just before 7pm and the place was nearly full, an impressive sight, especially being in the middle of summer. We were greeted at the hostess stand and shown immediately to our table. Soon after, our server Kristen came over and introduced herself and asked if we’d like to get started with some drinks. I chose a house Greek white wine and my companion chose the Orange Moscow Mule.

Soon followed a plate of warm crispy pita served with a red pepper & feta spread. It was delicious!! This scrumptious appetizer is compliments of the house in lieu of the standard bread basket. Good call. I scanned the menu and of course to my delight, I spotted octopus. Yes, please. My companion ordered the Mediterranean mussels. The octopus was grilled and although the description on the menu read charbroiled and marinated in olive oil it was actually served with a red wine vinaigrette and topped with dill. The dish […]
