It’s been pretty the star-studded week on The Post’s cafe defeat:
• Jon Bon Jovi showed up at Benny’s on the Beach front for a seafood lunch. (Here’s what he experienced at the waterfront restaurant.)
• The renowned publisher guiding Wine Spectator, Cigar Aficionado and other publications declared a partnership with the Palm Beach front Food and Wine Competition. He and pageant director David Sabin say it will expand the fest in important approaches.
• And 4 Palm Beach County places to eat are continue to aglow from recent visits by Food items Network celebrity Person Fieri, who has started to aspect them this year on his sequence “Diners, Push-Ins and Dives”.
As element of Fieri’s “DDD” spouse and children of America’s favorites, individuals places to eat unquestionably will get a strengthen, possibly even spot-dining standing.
As in their visits to local places to eat in recent several years, Fieri and his production staff have decided on very well — and, apparently, they’ve picked some sites that are not diners, generate-ins or dives. Generally, they are community gems and nearby principles really worth exploring.
So maybe a “DDD” mini-guide is in get. Consider about the deliciousness that awaits at Fieri’s beforehand showcased restaurants, like chef Tim Lipman’s Coolinary in Palm Seashore Gardens, chef Clay Carnes’ Cholo Soy in West Palm Beach and chef Eric Baker’s Rebel Dwelling in Boca Raton.

What to purchase at the ‘DDD’ places to eat?
There are community gems in Fieri’s most latest batch of featured restaurants. Here’s what I would buy at this season’s Palm Beach front County stops:
• AtRose’s Daughter in Delray Beach, a single of two outstanding Pineapple Grove dining places by the talented chef/restaurateur Suzanne Perrotto, I’d get started with the spinach dumplings. These fluffy orbs of spinach and home made ricotta are seasoned with cracked black pepper and served on magnificent pecorino product sauce. And I might get a single of Perrotto’s handmade pasta dishes, like the frutti di mare (a person of Fieri’s highlighted dishes), which tops squid ink pasta with jumbo shrimp, scallops and clams in an nduja-tomato broth with a little bit of saffron aioli.
• At TheButcher and the Bar in Boynton Beach front, I’d have what Fieri experienced: the Italian-type porchetta sandwich by butcher and govt chef Logan Gates. The chef lavishes consideration and taste on the pork roll, which he rubs with fennel, garlic and lemon. He serves it on regionally baked ciabatta bread with gremolata, shaved fennel and preserved lemon vinaigrette.
• At La Cosinita Latina inPalm Springs, there’s no question what I’d get: the shrimp mofongo. Operator/chef Max Lucena serves the plantain mash with huge shrimp in a creole sauce. It’s one particular of at least 10 mofongo dishes he provides at the genuine Puerto Rican cafe.
• At the Cheffrey Eats foods truck in Boca Raton, I’d certainly purchase a person of chef/operator Jeffrey “Cheffrey” Lemmerman’s cheesecake jars. Lemmerman, who has a permanent parking area at the Barrel of Monks brewery, levels the cheesecake batter with other flavorings and batters and poaches them in unique jars.
The “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” episode showcasing The Butcher and the Bar and Cheffrey Eats airs at 9 p.m. tonight on Food stuff Community. Future Friday’s episode will aspect La Cosinita Latina.
Farewell, Rebel Residence
You may well want to hurry if Rebel Dwelling is in your “DDD” exploration plans. The Boca Raton place will transition into an additional notion by executive chef and co-proprietor Eric Baker. He and lover David Bouhadana are going AlleyCat, their Japanese izakaya presently at Royal Palm Area on Southeast Mizner Boulevard, into the Rebel House area, the proprietors announced by way of Instagram this 7 days.
Rebel Home will consider reservations by means of March 26. AlleyCat makes its debut in its new, expanded place on April 3. According to the announcement, sections of Rebel Property will continue being there in spirit:
“Although Rebel Home will not be operating as it has for the past ten years, a lot of of the Rebel House’s greatest functions will endure.”
• Rebel Property/AlleyCat: The new AlleyCat will be at 297 E. Palmetto Park Rd., Boca Raton, 561-353-5888.

Here’s my new guidebook to places to eat near the station, a handy listing for when your out-of-town company descend on the station, asking “where’s a great place to eat?”
Burlesque brunch. This new restaurant in Lantana is accomplishing a cheeky Sunday brunch throughout March. But which is not the only issue to know about Ravish Off Ocean.
Honolulu-Mex? You have had Tex-Mex, but have you tried out Hawaiian-Mex delicacies? That’s the idea at the new Bear’s Foodstuff Shack and Tequila Bar in Lake Truly worth Seaside.
Feliz St. Patrick’s Working day!
I experienced to chuckle when both of those WalletHub and LawnStarter listed Hialeah, my childhood city, as “least Irish” in The us and second-least-greatest town for celebrating St. Patrick’s Working day, respectively in separate research. Hialeah is exactly where I fell in like with Irish lifestyle and stories, many thanks to the Irish nuns at Immaculate Conception Catholic School, hailing from Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.
They have been immigrants from a lush, environmentally friendly island, just like my fellow Cuban-born classmates and me. At property, we may perhaps have experienced Cuban picadillo, rice and plantains for meal on plates devoid of anything inexperienced, but at school we were the Celtics (“the mighty, mighty Celtics!”).
For these Sisters of Mercy and the Irish-Hialeah memories they spark, I raise a toast nowadays, the most Irish of days. Sláinte!
Have a delectable weekend!
