September is Flavor Month: Southern Palm Beach County Edition

Flavor Palm Beach is in full swing, and according to OpenTable, reservations for some of the more coveted seats are wide open. A twenty dollar bill buys a three course lunch and $30 to $35 pays for three course dinner through the end of the month.  After the jump, I've rounded up the stand-bys, crowd pleasers, and the more creative menus among participating restaurants in Boca and Delray Beach.

Read on for the skinny.

The Standbys

Ruth Chris

A choice of salad for first course, steak, chicken, or salmon for the mains and a paired dessert is standard fare for $30 a person at this stalwart in Boca.


Steakhouse loyalists can expect a similar menu

as its Ruth Chris competition with Morton's flourishes and a higher tab ($35).

Crowd Pleasers

Table 42
Three choices for three courses highlight the menu

at this Italian crowd pleaser. Choose between giant meatballs, roasted

artichokes, and calamari for the first course. Italian standards of chicken

parm, penne a la vodka, or pizza are the main offerings, with tiramisu or the lovely

affogato for dessert.

City Oyster
In addition to a greens or Caesar, diners here for dinner

($30) can try the New England clam chowder, and for dinner it's yail

filet, grilled chicken, or pork chop. Chocolate fans take note: aside

from the key lime tart, there's triple chocolate pudding, or a chocolate

sundae for dessert.

Capital Grille

Lunch ($20) is the more creative of the two menus,

with corn bisque, truffle fries, watermelon and feta salad, lobster

rolls, and burgers on the docket. Stick with the homemade ice cream over

flourless chocolate cake or creme brulee. The $30 dinner features salad, burgers, sirloin, chicken, or salmon- and the same


Mixing It Up

32 East

The $35 dinner menu

features a refreshing cucumber and radish salad or bruschetta among  firsts. Mains are Mahi, roasted chicken, or a very fall-like

braised beef ragu with whipped ricotta. For dessert, there's

Sambuca-vanilla poached figs with cheesecake, or brownie a la mode with

candied walnuts and berries.


With goat cheese salad, fish tacos, ribs, and veal meatloaf among the offerings on the $20 lunch and $35 dinner menus here, this restaurant serves up some of the most diverse offerings for the month.
