Good Eats by the Beach

To draw attention to redevelopment efforts on the waterfront scene off East Atlantic Boulevard, the Pompano Beach Redevelopment Agency and the Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce will host a grand-opening celebration for the city’s newest beachside restaurant, known as the Beach Grille. Located in a newly renovated building just 100 yards from the city’s public beach, the Beach Grille is one of several establishments — including Briny Irish Pub, a sushi restaurant, and an ice cream shop — taking advantage of larger sidewalks and an extended patio area that makes for café-style outdoor seating with oceanfront views. The two-hour grand-opening party will include an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:45 p.m., after which free food and drink will be available for attendees. Stop by and sample the Beach Grille’s boardwalk-style menu items, like funnel fries (fried funnel cake in the shape of French fries) and Philly-style cheese-steak sandwiches. Afterward, enjoy a free concert on the beach. The grand opening will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at the restaurant, located at 3414 E. Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano Beach. Entry to the event is free, as is light food and drink. Call 954-786-7824 to RSVP.
