Prime Catch redux introduces Prime Island
The “new” 16-year-old Prime Catch has added a wonderful feature: Prime Island. This is a 25-seat island bar in the Intracoastal, surrounded by boat docks, and it promises to be a beautiful place to sit and sip. The other big news is that the inside renovation of this longtime Boynton Beach restaurant has been lightened – the inside theme is bright white, aqua and silver. Good news for those of us who felt as if we were dining in a cave the past few years.
Not to be outdone by the interior designers, Executive Chef John Bonk has created new lunch, brunch, dinner and cocktail menus, along with a new bar bites menu. You now have all kinds of good reasons to visit Prime Catch again.

Shiitake Asian Bistro opens in Delray Beach
The relatively new Shiitake Asian Bistro in Delray Beach is garnering good word of mouth. Its Thai/sushi dishes include a little of everything, so it’s on my to-try list. New year, new restaurants, new tastes.

Eat, yacht, dive with Lionfish (before it opens!)
Speaking of new places, Lionfish in Delray Beach is moving closer to opening sometime this spring at 307 E. Atlantic Ave. The ceviche was on display last Thursday at the Flavors event at The Addison, so the kitchen is working hard on the menu. To push the Lionfish Modern Coastal Cuisine name (the official venue moniker) out there, you can vie for a yacht trip for two on Feb. 25 with diving, food and drinks by following the restaurant on Instagram (@LionfishDelray).
