Stop in to celebrate 15 years at Henry’s

From 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. today, Dec. 8, Henry’s restaurant (16850 Jog Road, Delray Beach, 561/638-1949) will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a cocktail reception. That’s a milestone in any business, but for a restaurant, it’s a big one! There will be drink specials, hors d’oeuvres and live music to show appreciation for patrons’ loyalty. Henry’s is named after the beloved dog of Rapoport’s president, Burt Rapoport, and the menu is known for its traditional American classic dishes.

Lunch gets a boost: Josie’s Ristorante

‘Tis the season to meet friends, and to find new dishes to love in local restaurants. One of the additions to your list should be Josie’s Ristorante (1602 S. Federal Hwy., Boynton Beach, 561/364-9601). There’s a new lunch menu with plates of chicken scaloppini, a triple prime burger (pictured), a garda panini (meatballs, mozzarella, provolone and more), pici Toscana pasta (grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli, pine nuts, pumpkin ravioli brown butter) and that’s just a taste. All of this comes from Chef Mark Militello of the famed South Florida Mango Gang and Chef Gregorio. Dinner and happy hour (at 4 p.m.) are also on the menu Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to close and Sunday from 4 p.m. to close.
