Summer Specials Continued

Let’s hear it for the summer! Yes, it’s steamy. Yes, the sun requires us to wear sunscreen and oh-so-chic chapeaus. And yes, the wonderful summer dining specials are back in place!

Half-price entrees, and always fab ‘tini at Table 26

When you are seated at Table 26 (1700 Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach, 561/855-2660), and the waiter knows you need the house Signature Martini before you’ve looked at the menu, well, maybe you can be called predictable. But when it’s Table 26’s martini, then you’re called smart. The beautiful blend of grapefruit and lots of alcohol is a sweet-tangy way to end the day and begin dinner. That would be the summer special dinner with entrees 50 percent off between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Just be seated and order by 6 p.m., and the braised short ribs (pictured, full price: $38)—as well as the other entrees—are yours for half the price.

Mussels and wine temptations: Pistache’s summer specials

If it’s Monday, it means the classic Pistache French Bistro (101 N. Clematis St., West Palm Beach, 561/833-5090) is featuring Moules Mondays, where it’s all-you-can-eat mussels (pictured) with the purchase of one entrée. Being a huge fan of their mussel dishes, this is going on my calendar. And then there’s Wine Down Wednesdays, where bottles of wine are 50 percent off with purchase of one entrée, with 20 percent off reserves and 20 percent off Champagne.

Summer Dinner Series launches: Meat Market, Palm Beach

Following the popular series at the Miami location, Meat Market Palm Beach(191 Bradley Place, Palm Beach, 561/354-9800) on May 25 is kicking off a monthly summer dinner series that pairs cocktails or wine with the restaurant’s contemporary cuisine. Executive Chef/Co-Owner Sean Brasel will feature the dishes, while mixologist Ezra Pattek puts craft cocktails with the first dinner series’ plates. For $85 per person (excluding tax/gratuity), the dinner starts with a 7 p.m. reception, and reservations are required.

A la carte: Wine Spectator just named West Palm Beach’s La Sirena (6316 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach, 561/585-3128) restaurant as one of the nation’s eight, great family-owned restaurants with a tradition of wine. In fact, La Sirena is first on the list. The restaurant’s been on Wine Spectator’s awards list since 1999.
