Chef Steven Zobel is the chef behind East End Brasserie at the Atlantic Resort & Spa, the subject of this week's restaurant review. Having moved here from New York this past summer, Zobel earned accolades during his tenure at Triomphe from the New York Times and New York Magazine

Despite long hours on the line and his brief residence in South Florida, Zobel has already ferreted out a handful of interesting restaurants for after-hours eats and nights off. Read on for his picks.

Silver Pond Chinese Restaurant in Lauderhill 

"This restaurant is out-of-this-world good," said Zobel. "I'm coming from New York and this is one of the best Chinese lobster dishes I have ever had." 

Egg N You Diner in Wilton Manors 
"I always get the chicken-fried steak and eggs. My 5-year-old son swears by the grilled cheese," said the chef of this diner that's been around for over 50 years. "It's what a diner should be." 

Cabana El Bay in Delray Beach 
"The papaya Valencia is a solid meal for a solid price," he said of the small-plates Cuban restaurant. 

EuroBread and Cafe in Fort Lauderdale 
"This is my neighborhood bakery. The coffee and croissants are topnotch. And the people who work there are great," he said of this bakery that has earned kudos for "best bakery" and "best croissant" from New Times in years past.
