This week in Dish, we review Corner Café and Brewery in Tequesta, a brewpub and restaurant that serves homespun dishes with international flair. Here's an excerpt from the review:

Here's what $18 will buy you at Corner Café: a slow-braised lamb shank, tender enough to be flicked apart with your fork, yet still alive with bold, grassy flavor. A "Bavarian sauce" on the side is a mix of meltingly soft root vegetables married so thoroughly with lamb stock you'd think a vegetable and an animal managed to reproduce. It's served over spaeztle that has the same authentically chewy texture as the stuff a friend's German mother used to make. I'd expect to pay $30 or more for something of this caliber in West Palm or Fort Lauderdale; even then you probably wouldn't get a portion this big or this well produced.

A brewpub with award-winning beer, food that's handcrafted to match, and prices that go beyond reasonable? Corner Café is an absolute hit. Read more about it when our review debuts tomorrow in Dish.
