Healthy, inexpensive, everyday fare is what's on the menu at the new Prosecco Café (4580 PGA Blvd.; 561-622-3222) in Palm Beach Gardens, the latest venture from Avi Sekerel, also proprietor of Saquella Café in Boca Raton.
At Prosecco, Sekerel takes the concept more upscale Euro, with a sunny gold color scheme, granite-topped tables, leather chairs, and a variety of artwork. There's indoor and outdoor seating for 140, plus beer and wine (with a full bar to come in the future).
In keeping with the restaurant's healthful orientation, it's a "no fry zone" at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, says general manager Meredith Zimmerman. Among the most popular dishes are an omelet on a croissant with Asiago cheese and prosciutto; a Tuscan omelet with pesto, Brie, and caramelized onions; pistachio-crusted grouper with mango salsa; and seared Scottish salmon with spinach and red potatoes.

There's also an in-house pastry chef who makes most of Prosecco's desserts (gelato will eventually be made on-premises), which are served in small portions à la Seasons 52. Prices are small too, Zimmerman says, with average checks running $10 to $12 per person.
And that is something worth lifting a glass of Prosecco to.
