A Wine Dinner and a Reggae Brunch

David Frost wine dinner hosted at Fries to Caviar


When South African golfer David Frost was winning on the PGA Tour circuit (he won 10 PGA Tour championships), he was also thinking about grape harvests, because his family has been in the wine business for 60 years. He bought his own vineyard (pictured) in 1994, and started turning out wines in 1997. Now he’s bringing his passion for wine to a dinner on Oct. 19 at Fries to Caviar, 6299 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton; 561/617-5965.

You will be served four courses, plus dessert for $69.95 per person (not including tax/gratuity). Try the sauvignon blanc, rose, pinotage, shiraz and frizzante with scallops ceviche, warm goat cheese salad, pan-roasted pheasant, short ribs and sangria sorbet. Reservations are required.


Reggae brunch kicks off Avocado Grill’s 2nd anniversary


In the two years since Avocado Grill opened (125 Datura St., West Palm Beach; 561/623-0822), it’s become one of the most popular restaurants in the downtown Clematis Street area. It was voted “Best New Restaurant for 2015” by Florida Trend magazine, and has numerous awards from Open Table and other publications. Celebrities are spotted there (Billy Joel comes to mind) eating the specialty ceviche or one of the small or large plates of scrumptious food.

So it’s no surprise the restaurant is still with us, and to celebrate that, chef/owner Julien Gremaud is throwing a nice birthday party – and you’re invited. On Oct. 15, a Reggae Brunch from 1 to 4 p.m. will have coconut lobster rolls, jerk shrimp tacos and dirty rice, and music from Spred the Dub. At night, DJ Adam Lipson starts the music at 9 p.m., and dinner will be served. Then Oct. 16, a Disco Boogie party starts with brunch from 1 to 4 p.m., with live music and a ‘70s-attire costume contest for those who can’t wait till Halloween. Get the bellbottoms out!
