    Fall in Love (Again) with Italian Classics at BRAVO! at a Price You Will Love!

Fall in Love (Again) with Italian Classics at BRAVO! at a Price You Will Love!

Hello Foodie Friends,

Tis I, your favorite foodie ((wink wink)), out and about Savoring Our City once again making and sharing new discoveries in Boca and beyond. Today’s post is about my most recent visit to BRAVO! Cucina Italiana at Harbourside Place in Jupiter, FL. (For a look at my previous visit there back on November 2014 where I sampled their brunch, click here.)

With everything “new” for the New Year, BRAVO! Cucina Italiana is inviting guests all across the nation to re-discover and fall in love with Italian cuisine all over again with the release of some of their time-honored and classic – Italian comfort foods. Now through February 27, as part of its special Classic Italian Combinations menu, BRAVO! is featuring traditional favorites such as Baked Chicken Parmesan, Shrimp Scampi and Grilled Chicken Picatta, each served with a side vegetable and starch with a choice of soup or salad as a starter for just $10.99, available for either lunch or dinner.

I was invited back to experience this two course menu which I graciously accepted and decided to bring along my friend Sharon, who just so happened to be my companion on my first visit to BRAVO!

Our server Yasmine had a lovely smile and was warm and personable throughout our visit. To start us off, she brought us each a Flirtini, which we both thought was delicious.

Team Leader/Manager Darryl came over to our table to introduce himself and after discussing several options, we decided to take Darryl’s suggestion to try the Crispy Shrimp Napoli appetizer.  Note: the appetizer is not included in the $10.99 two course meal, but trust me, you will want to get this! Even if you’re dining alone, get it and eat half and take the rest home. You don’t want to miss out on this. It’s that […]

    Hip Hip Hooray for Henry’s, Still Going Strong After 15 Years

Hip Hip Hooray for Henry’s, Still Going Strong After 15 Years

Hello Foodie Friends,

Being that I spend much of my time traveling between East Boca and East Delray, with so many restaurant choices available, it takes a little coaxing if you will, to get me to venture out west. But then again, I am an adventurous foodie, always open for a foodie field trip, especially when there’s a chance that my next fantastic meal could be there just waiting for me to discover. Last week I was invited to attend a Media/Blogger dinner at Henry’s, located in the Shoppes at Addison Place on Jog Road in Delray Beach. This was my first time dining at Henry’s. Now even though it was my first, I already had pretty high expectations coming into this evening due to the fact that it is part of Rapoport’s Restaurant Group, (Bogart’s Bar & Grille, which I reviewed last month, Deck 84, Burt & Max’s, Apeiro Kitchen & Bar (Delray & now in Midtown Miami), Max’s Grille (co-owner) and coming this fall to Boca, Rappy’s Deli) led by veteran restaurateur Burt Rapoport who has worked very hard at building his brand by providing high-quality affordable cuisine, a welcoming ambiance, attentive service and as such, has received numerous accolades and has been developing loyal patrons for over 30 years.

On this night, we were introduced to Henry’s new Executive Chef Warren Lee and treated to a sampling of several of the new additions created by Chef Lee for the winter seasonal menu. Chef Lee has also made revisions to some of Henry’s popular favorites. This is Chef Lee’s first full menu roll out since coming on board with Rapoport’s Restaurant Group as Executive Chef this past summer.

The first dish to arrive on our table was the Lobster and Shrimp […]
