    Like those at greasy spoons, truck stops, and coffeehouses, the employees at Laspada's (4346 Seagrape Dr., Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, 954-776-7893) have a vocabulary all their own. And customers can't help but pick up the lingo. First-timers might find "...

    Bookstores aren't just for books any more. The front half of Clematis Street Books, for example, is otherwise known as Susan's Bistro & Wine Bar (206 Clematis St., West Palm Beach, 561-832-5398), where you can linger, book-browse or people-watch at t...

    Everything's Coming Up Rosey

    A restaurant that specializes in seasonal grub has three choices when it comes to the off-season: Close for a few months, jeopardize its reputation by serving frozen product, or rely solely on other fare to bring in customers. Last week Joe's Stone C...

    Tender Is the Night

    Before I worked as a restaurant critic, I was a "spotter." Hired by restaurant owners, I'd secretly visit their operations, document my experiences, then file exhaustive reports. In exchange for my toil, I was paid in meals rather than currency. I co...

    I read cookbooks like other people read novels. But I'm overwhelmed by the extensive choices at, say, Borders and Barnes & Noble. I want them all, and usually walk away with nothing. My solution? I joined The Good Cook, the Better Homes and Gardens c...

    An Aztec Ruin

    "Don't worry. They won't fall on you," a hostess assured us. We'd been staring at the pre-Columbian columns that stretch from the floor to the 40-foot ceiling at the six-week-old Aztec World Cafe. The restaurant, located in the new Las Olas River...

    Usually an abbey is a place where monks hang out. But in Hollywood there's an abbey that's far from ecclesiastical in nature -- unless you consider beer a religion, as do Ray Rigazio and Rich Dispenzieri, proprietors of The Abbey Brewing Co. (201 N. ...

    For the most part, hurricanes are dangerous. They wreak havoc on homes, possessions, lives. But at least one hurricane has had a positive effect on the Broward dining scene. Thanks in no small part to Hurricane Andrew, which brutalized Miami-Dad...

    Holy Smokeys

    Barbecue is about absolutes. It's either some of the best you've ever had or some of the worst. When it comes to the grill in the South, even in South Florida, there is no middle ground. Unfortunately, more often than not, the barbecue I've samp...

    Hungary in Hollywood

    Hollywood's hip. Hollywood's happening. Hollywood's Hungarian? The media and the local government have made much of downtown Hollywood's "renaissance." They claim it's a nouveau world out there, with all sorts of chic folk roaming the gentrified ...

    Fish shouldn't smell fishy. Not the ones you're going to eat, anyway -- not if they're fresh. And by extension a fish market shouldn't have a questionable aroma, either. That's why I was pleased to smell absolutely nothing besides the salt water from...
