Travel the Food World

Latin at Cabana El Rey, Thai at Ziree, Italian at Il Bacio, Brazilian at Gol!, French at Crepes by the Sea, Mediterranean at Boheme Bistro, and on and on. No wonder the latest downtown Delray Beach event is centered on a $25 Tastemakers of Delray Beach passport, because the bulk of the 24 restaurants involved are internationally inspired, and all of them are giving you dining deals until September 30.

But from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, passport holders get to go on a restaurant crawl and sample wine, beer, and cocktail tastings and food pairings inside all of these restaurants. In addition to the restaurants listed above, 32 East, Olio, Boston’s on the Beach, City Oyster, Sundy House, and others are taking part. The free passport afterparties from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. will be at Il Bacio and Johnnie Brown’s.

After this weekend’s Tastemakers’ event, the passport will get you deals at Il Bacio (three-course dinner for $18), Sundy House (20 percent off your food purchase if you buy a drink), and 32 East (two-for-one drinks at the bar), among others — just make sure you don’t leave your passport at home. You can purchase a passport at any of the participating restaurants.
Fri., Aug. 13, 5 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 14, 5 p.m., 2010
