When a restaurant team works well together, and ends up creating a space with fab food, drinks, ambiance and service, it’s something to recognize. That’s happened with James Beard Award-nominated Chef Clay Conley and his partners Piper Quinn and Sam Slattery with Buccan, the “new kid on the block” go-to place on Palm Beach for the past five years. With a big thanks to its faithful customers, Buccan is holding an anniversary bash on Jan. 22. It will include bringing back some favorite dishes as well as current delights. Try grilled Florida corn with aioli, cotija cheese, Mexican chilies and lime; a Colorado lamb “Scottadito” with harissa and raita; the warm Brussels sprouts Caesar; the short rib empanada (pictured) and a lot more. On the drinks side, the Buccan T (basil, unsweetened ice tea, cranberry, citrus and agave nectar) will be $5 all night, and DJ Rey will be supplying the music.
