A Tour of Italy at Boca’s City Fish Market
Get ready to head to Italy on July 27, with a Tour of Italy dinner. But you can stay on this side of the pond for this one and head to City Fish Market (7940 Glades Road, Boca Raton, 561/487-1600). This all-inclusive four-course dinner features wine pairings with each course and dishes such as ravioli with mushrooms and black truffles, osso buco and more.
A sangria salute at Salute Market
The Wine Down Wednesday event at Salute Market (5530 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Garden,; 561/452-5651) is The Art of Sangria. Apparently, there’s more to the art than just drinking sangria (!), and you’ll learn how to build two customized sangrias with wine bases, liqueurs, fruits and juices—all based on your tastes. The cost is $20 per person, and the event is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended.
New on the menu: City Tap House will open Aug. 3. This American-regional cuisine restaurant takes the space formerly occupied by Brewzzi, across from City Cellar. Plus, City Tap will take over the outside bar area between the two restaurants, which is a nice place to sit and sip. The restaurant will initially be open from 4 p.m. t 10 p.m., Sunday to Thursday and 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday/Saturday for the first few weeks. Lunch and weekend brunch hours will happen later.
