Enjoy bright colors, flavors of summer macarons

Paneterie macarons

If you’ve never enjoyed a fresh macaron, please remedy that soon. It’s a wonderful sensation: a little crunchy, a little sweet, a jolt of flavor and then it’s gone too quickly. They are as wonderful as they look!

At Paneterie in Delray Beach and West Palm Beach, and at Patrick Leze Palm Beach, the summer macarons started appearing this week (pictured). There’s strawberry, piña colada, and lime/basil and they are $2.25 each throughout the summer. They are worth the trip.

Speaking of French cuisine (macarons – see above item!), the Palm Beach French country restaurant Chez l’Epicier is offering summer specials through Oct. 30. We love that definition of summer dates! On Wednesdays, the flatbreads and pizzas are $15 each, and include toppings such as shrimp or chicken with pesto, mozzarella, pear and goat cheese, and four more.

On Thursdays, a personal fave of mine, the all-you-can-eat mussels and fries are offered, with five sauces available. Plus early diners save 50 percent on entrees from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., and a prix-fixe three-course menu is offered for $34 per person. A cornucopia of eating options. Closed Sundays and Mondays during summer.
