Summer Dining Specials Are Heating Up!

Ke’e Grill

Now through September, the restaurant is offering a three-course, prix-fixe menu for $39.95 per person. It includes the option of the grilled maple mustard center cut pork chops (pictured above), and my suggestion is to order the terrific spinach Maria with that. Plus dessert, of course. 17940 N. Military Trail, Boca Raton; 561/995-5044;

Capital Grille

This chain’s popular The Generous Pour program is back on with a “Legends of the Land” theme. It means when you order food, you can order a customized wine tasting for $28 per person with dinner. It’s a great deal, because Capital Grille is known for a very good wine list. With the addition of the Boca Raton restaurant this year, now all of our local Capital Grilles have been awarded Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, so take advantage of this expertise. The restaurants’ Advance Sommelier, Brian Phillips, has chosen the wines in this 11th year of the Generous Pour feature, which lasts until Sept. 1. All locations,

Ironwood Steak and Seafood

Running Sunday to Friday nights from now through September, you’ll find a three-course, prix-fixe menu here for $40. That includes appetizer, entrée and dessert. You can upgrade for other entrées, and add a bottle of selected wines for $30. PGA National Resort & Spa, 400 Avenue of the Champions, Palm Beach Gardens; 561/227-2548;

Aug. 4: Legends Tavern and Grille

It’s a QUE BBQ Pop-Up Experience here for one day, with jalapeño heaters, smoked beef brisket, cheddar grit cakes, burnt-end baked beans, loaded potato salad, and millionaire bacon green beans, plus dessert. All à la carte.  Starts at 11:30 a.m. through dinner to 10 p.m. 3128 N. Federal Highway, Lighthouse Point; 754/220-8932;

Aug. 21: The Regional Kitchen & Public House

In a repeat of what turned out to be standing room only last year, the father/son team behind Smokin’ Gator BBQ, Robert and Paul Shalhoub, return to join forces with Regional’s Chef Lindsay Autry for one night, starting at 5:30 p.m. Everything from burnt-end beignets, hush puppies, prime brisket, Duroc baby back ribs, sweet tea-brined grilled chicken thighs, Eastern Carolina pulled pork, and more are on the menu. Reservations are a must; this will sell out again. 651 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach; 561/557-6460;
