Last week we shared some of summer specials we’re looking forward to trying–if you want more, look no further!
Ouzo Bay: A daily prix-fixe dinner menu features three courses for $29 through the end of the summer. Included are soup or salad, entrée and dessert. Entrée options include filleted bronzino (pictured), whole dorade, roasted chicken and honey-glazed pork chop. Mizner Park, 201 Plaza Real, Boca Raton; 561/757-0082
Chez L’Epicier: This Palm Beach fave brings back its Thursday nights with all-you-can-eat mussels (yes, you read that correctly) and fries. They serve these beauties five ways: white wine, shallot and garlic; Dijon mustard; bouillabaisse; coconut milk and curry; and tomato arabiatta. That’s for $25 per person (no sharing). Then there are Fridays, featuring tartares: including beef, tuna, salmon, beet, avocado and tomato. Early diners receive half-off all entrees between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. One more special: a three-course prix-fixe dinner with choices from four starters, four entrees and three desserts. 288 S. County Road, Palm Beach; 561/508-7030
Basque: Here’s a summer special geared to our rainy SoFla weather, and it’s brilliant! This new Spanish experience, with Chef Miguel Angel Rebolledo serving up tapas, entrees and paellas from a mobile kitchen, has been extremely popular. Now they have “When it rains, we pour,” which means half-price tapas (like the Gambas Ajillo, pictured) and drinks until the rain stops. That’s in addition to happy hour Wednesday to Friday from 5 to 7 p.m., which also includes half-off beer, sangria, frozen drinks and specialty cocktails. Hotel Biba, 320 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach
Meat Market Palm Beach A few summer specials offered here, including the three-course prix-fixe Twilight Menu Monday-Friday, 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., for $39. Then there’s the extended happy hour, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. with special prices on selected drinks. And on Signature Steak Sundays, the steaks are half-price on Sundays through the summer. 191 Bradley Place, Palm Beach; 561/354-9800
