Brewzzi, Boca Raton

Posted on January 13, 2017 by Scott Sanfilippo No Comments

The last time I was at Brewzzi, they had a location at City Place in West Palm Beach. Yes, that was a long time ago. I remember their pizza being pretty good and they had a pretty nice bar. Fast forward to today, when the only location they have now is off of Glades in […]

Banyan Restaurant & Bar, Delray Beach

Posted on January 9, 2017 by Scott Sanfilippo No Comments

Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach is home to more than a dozen restaurants. Some good, some not-so-good. Some have been around for a long time and others seem to last a season before they’re replaced by something else. While many like the spots on “restaurant row,” you can’t let the “off the Ave” spots be […]

Beauty and the Feast Kitchen & Bar, Fort Lauderdale

Posted on January 9, 2017 by Scott Sanfilippo No Comments

This weekend we travelled to Fort Lauderdale to check out a restaurant I’ve seen on OpenTable many times but never visited – Beauty & The Feast Bar | Kitchen. Tucked inside the Atlantic Hotel & Spa on Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., the restaurant bills its menu as being “globally inspired American.” We arrived in time […]

Botswana-style Seswaa Beef Short Rib from Jiko the Cooking Place at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge

Growing up Italian, Christmas Eve dinner was always some modified version of the traditional “seven fishes.” Modified in the sense that none of us could really agree that 100% of the “traditional” items were something we liked! This year, that traditional Italian meal was replaced with something right out of the wild! My husband and […]

“Up, Up and Away!” Or, “Scratch Helicopter Ride off my Bucket List”

Posted on December 28, 2016 by Scott Sanfilippo No Comments

The first time I was on a plane, I wasn’t quite a teenager, USAir wasn’t US Airways yet and the DC-9 was the airplane that carried me to Disney World. In other words, it was a long time ago! Since then I’ve flown over 100,000 miles, had my fair share of drunks, kids, dogs, cats […]

One of my Christmas presents this year was a night out compliments of my husband. He didn’t tell me where we were going. Just one of those, “get in the car, lets go” things. We ended up at a steakhouse both of us have been wanting to hit up for a while now, The Capital […]

Ever since I moved to Florida from northeast Pennsylvania more than a dozen years ago I’ve been on a quest to find some decent pizza. After all, I hail from an area home to the “Pizza Capital of the World,” Old Forge. Pizza in Old Forge is life. Main Street is full of pizza shop […]

Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, Delray Beach

Posted on December 12, 2016 by Scott Sanfilippo No Comments

Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar‘s first Florida location opened last week in Delray Place at the corner of Linton and Federal in Delray Beach. Much like Seasons 52, Harvest bills itself as having an under 500 calorie, farm-to-table menu that changes seasonally. Now, I’m not really sold on the under whatever calorie restaurants, as […]

Royal Caribbean and Others Open Bookings for Cruises to Cuba while Carnival ends Cruises on fathom

Posted on December 9, 2016 by Scott Sanfilippo No Comments

Carnival Corporation’s fathom line, which offered people-to-people cruises to the Dominican Republic and more recently Cuba, will see soon its final sailings. As I and many others have predicted, the concept of taking a vacation to do humanitarian aid in underdeveloped counties wasn’t what cruise goers wanted to do on their time off. The one […]
