Paninis and late-night dining


A student BOGO special: Corner Bakery Cafe

College classes are on again, so that means late nights and tight budgets. The Corner Bakery Cafe in Boca Raton (2240 NW 19th St., 561/417-6060) is trying to help the latter on Wednesdays, with a BOGO offer for its Paninis or Panini combos. Starting at 3 p.m. every Wednesday, students with a college ID who buy a Panini or Corner Panini combo will receive another for free. That special joins Corner Bakery Cafe’s other news about two new sandwiches: The Boca Triple and The Boss. The Boca Triple (pictured) is a triple meat overstuffed sandwich with corned beef, roast beef, turkey and Swiss cheese rolled with Cole slaw and Russian dressing and served on toasted sourdough bread. The Boss is a hot pastrami sandwich with thin slices of cucumbers on a French roll with Dijon dill mayo mustard spread. Both are $9.99.

As a local said, “Finally, a place in Boca open past 10 p.m.,” and because sometimes it seems those are scarce, it’s good to know about this place. Here is Boca Resto Lounge (3360 N. Federal Highway 561/430-5639) to the rescue. Along with a full dinner menu from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., there’s a late-night menu until 2 a.m. Expect a house DJ or live music nightly from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., and happy hour daily from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., with discounts on all food and drinks at inside or outside bars.
