With snowbird season beginning to wind down, restaurants start tweaking their menus to give the rest of us still around fresh reason to show up. Here’s what the Brio Tuscan Grilles in Boca (5050 Town Center Circle, 561/392-3777), West Palm (550 S. Rosemary Ave., 561/835-1511) and Palm Beach Gardens (3101 PGA Blvd., 561/622-0491) are doing. . .

At lunch and weekend brunch there’s a new applewood-smoked bacon and tomato jam bruschetta. Newly added lunch and dinner items include sausage and onion jam pizza with three cheeses and arugula, grilled chicken and roasted balsamic peppers with farro, quinoa and pesto vinaigrette, and lobster and shrimp ravioli with black pepper cream sauce. For dinner there’s a crab and shrimp-crusted salmon with lemon vinaigrette.

Two new wines by the glass (and bottle) are blends of several grapes. There’s the 19 Crimes Red from Australia, which goes for $8.95 a glass or $34 a bottle, and the Dreaming Tree Everyday White Blend from California, which will cost you $10.95 a glass and $42 a bottle.

Sip that while the folks in Boston are still up to their eyeballs in snow.
