New dishes, new restaurants — it’s all new!

We’ve got new summer specials, new late-night happy hours, new dishes and new restaurants. The eating scene never stops here, and that’s all good news for foodies in South Florida.

Here’s a taste of what’s going on:

  • Kitchen, 319 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach; (561) 249-2281: This tasty, small restaurant tucked inside a set of shops has a loyal following, and for good reason. It’s a very good restaurant. New dishes include halibut (pictured; photo by Libbyvision.com) with artichokes, wild mushrooms, truffled clam broth; pan-roasted simple chicken with truffle smashed Yukon potatoes; carpaccio salmon with heart of palm, cucumber and fresh herbs.
  • Prosecco Café, 4580 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 561/622-3222: A rotating dinner menu includes make-your-own-pasta nights on Mondays and Thursdays, a kids-eat-free-night on Tuesdays, and build-your-own-burger nights on Wednesdays. Fridays are for mussels, and Saturday and Sundays are for prime rib.
 
  • The Cooper, 4610 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 561/622-9932: If you’re up at 9 p.m., or later, and crave some noshing then you’re in luck. Mussels, fish tacos, a mezze sampler (pictured; photo by Libbyvision.com), duck confit and more are served for late-nighters till closing.
  • Jereve, at EmKo, 2119 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561/227-3511: This restaurant/art gallery/bakery/interesting place has some new dishes in place, an appetizer of stuffed piquillo peppers, with goat cheese & ancho chili among them. While this venue is a curious mix of experiences, the dinner menu reflects the same idea, and I’m going to need to try the English pea dumplings.

Up and coming: New faces with new places

Here’s a round up of some of the new venues you’ll see opening soon. In Delray Beach, the first U.S. restaurant in the brand Che!  Slated to open in late summer this year (that would be very, very soon, maybe?) in the former Hudson space (on the Intracoastal at 900 E. Atlantic Ave.), this will be the 16th Che, and will be a steakhouse and international restaurant, with dishes inspired by Argentina and Spain. The others, all in Spain, include Che American Style, Che Pizza & Pasta, Che Grill House, Che Asador Argentino and more. And we are waiting with hungry appetites for The Regional Kitchen & Public House, with celeb Chef Lindsay Autry to open at 651 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. AndClayton Carnes’ Cholo Soy Cucina, opening in the next month on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. Carnes just won the latest big Food Network “Cutthroat Chefs” competition.
