    That Old Blackened Magic

    You know you're getting close to Red Rock Coal Fired Pizza (50 NE First Ave., Boca Raton, 561-361-6655) when, a block or two away, you catch a whiff of burning coals. That scent tells you you're going to sit down to the kind of pizza that has generat...

    Rice Recovery - Post-storm traffic is still a pain, but the paella in Pembroke Pines is worth the hassle

    To the Max - Gone fishin' with 3030's Chef Dean, and a revisit to Caf Maxx

    October is National Cookbook Month. Bet you didn't know that, didja? It's also National Pickled Pepper Month, National Adopt-a-Dog Month, National Cosmetology Month, and National Sarcastics Month -- but none of that concerns us here. We're thinking o...

    The Switzerland of Pupusas

    Since it's neither Salvadoran nor Honduran, Fort Lauderdale's Guatemala Restaurant (3673 Davie Blvd., 954-792-9737) is not the first, second, or 19th place that most people would look for pupusas, but the tiny establishment with just five stools and ...

    Columbus Day Unplugged - We skip the parade and head for the fettuccini

    When the International Federation of Competitive Eating polled 1,000 "eating athletes" for its Columbus Day pasta poll in 2003, it discovered that in matters fettuccini, there's a woeful historical ignorance among our pasta-eating elite. Only 43 perc...

    Come Sail Away - On the MS Zuiderdam, we are what we eat

    Once, I was a queen... I parked my fat white ass in a deck chair while impoverished brown people from Third World countries scurried around to satisfy my every whim. Caviar? Champagne? I had only to waggle a pinkie. And if, during my five-course dinn...

    Prime-al Scene

    While we Palm Beach downtown-watchers weren't watching, something weird happened. West Palm Beach, with all its pomp and hubris, its master plans, mayoral specifying, scads of money, and fancypants developers, went precisely nowhere. Meanwhile, the l...

    Cesar's Palace - Hoboken Grill draws chi-chi crowds to the 'hood

    To get to Hoboken Grill, you must pass briefly through a black hole. It's a lightless, uninhabited corridor of Dixie Highway, a no-fly zone between downtown West Palm Beach and the cozily gentrified neighborhood of Old Northwood. There's not a single...

    Sexi Mexi - Two new Boca restaurants head south of the border

    This place is already dated," my significant other announced as she settled into her hand-hewn wooden chair at MoQuila and lifted artisanal glassware to lips. "In ten years, we'll look back at this and say, "My God, that was so '05." All the same, ...

    Peas Porridge Haute - You won't miss the meat at Sublime's chef demos

    Poutine Beat

    When I was 5 years old, my family moved to suburban Montreal. In the winter, we'd bundle up in snowsuits and have snowball fights and dig tunnels through the mounds of snow where the sidewalks used to be. In the summers, I remember the local Dairy Qu...

    Lost at Sea - The not-so-mysterious disappearance of Charley's Crab

    CoCo So-So - More proof that money can't buy happiness

    Like I've always said: Never trust a food critic. There she'll go, raving about "authentic Amazonian twice-baked piranha" at some impossible-to-find dive. You trek 80 minutes through Cat 2 squalls to get there, and the fish tastes like twice-baked Ni...

    The Angel Has Landed - Serafina ups the ante in Victoria Park

    Serafina means "angel" in Italian, and I guess with the right sky-blue backdrop, a little otherworldly lighting, and the wistful notes of a discrete off-stage choir, you could mistake Shari Woods for one of those heavenly creatures. That is, if angel...

    Too Darned Hot
