Delray Beach's Atlantic Crossing Approved: New Shops and Restaurants on the Way

Broward and Palm Beach Counties are filled with cities that are known for different things.

Palm Beach is known for luxury and wealth; Fort Lauderdale is appreciated by Spring Breakers and heavy drinkers across the world; Hollywood is recognized for its strange residents and snowbirds -- it's called Hollyweird for a reason; Delray Beach, on the other hand, is best known for its profusion of great restaurants and, well, just about anything pertaining to food.

While it's already a world-class gourmet haven, it's about to get even more options.

Late Wednesday, Delray Beach City Commissioners approved extending the eastern corridor of Atlantic Avenue with a mixed use center -- that includes eateries -- called Atlantic Crossing.
