New faces and new places

Some new faces and new places are here or due to open in the next couple of months. We are excited about trying out these menus!

‘Changing the burger game’: Burger & Beer Joint, CityPlace

When every burger is named for a rock ‘n’ roll song, you know you’re in for a fun atmosphere. Burger & Beer Joint has opened its sixth location at 550 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach. On the menu is the Hotel California Burger (pictured: beef, sharp cheddar, onions, fried egg, guacamole, jalapeno relish, cilantro sour cream) and the Hey Jude (chicken burger, bacon, Havarti cheese, avocado), among others. Try the brews that include Brooklyn Lager, Due South Caramel Cream Ale, Sierra Nevada Noon Pilsner and more. Happy hour runs Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. There’s also the Ten-Pound Mother Burger challenge, but that’s for another time.

Seasonal dishes, creative cocktails: Jardin to open on Clematis

Husband and wife chef team Jordan Lerman and Stephanie Cohen will open Jardin (330 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) in April. In the Via Jardin building and sporting a flower-filled courtyard, the restaurant will have fresh, seasonal cuisine and craft cocktails on the menu. Lerman and Cohen worked in New York and recently at Boca Raton’s Rebel House. The plan is to open for dinner and weekend brunch, with intentions to start lunch after that.

First Baltimore, now Boca Raton: Ouzo Bay opens this summer

You’ll have another eatery for Greek/Mediterranean later this summer, as restaurateurs Alexander Smith and George Aligeorgas open the second Ouzo Bay location in Boca’s Mizner Park. The other Ouzo Bay is in Baltimore, and the commitment to fresh food will travel to South Florida, too. Whole fish will be flown in from around the world, with grass-fed lamb, prime beef and organic chicken. Handcrafted cocktails and a wine list heavy on Greek wines are promised, too. Opa!
