I'm a sucker for anything that smacks of poetry, so Delectable Edibles (2811 E. Commercial Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954-772-6411) had a pretty good shot at impressing me from the get-go. Aside from the slant-rhyming name, I found the fare in this gourmet market-and-catering facility, run by co-executive chef-proprietors Peter J. Mavraides and Tamatha V. Villanueva, to be pretty poetic as well. In addition to a host of gourmet salads and prepared foods, Delectable Edibles produces daily specials of hot foods such as turkey meat loaf -- items that satisfy but don't sink you, especially during the summertime. That's a good thing to note if you're going boating for any length of time, because one of the specialties here is "yacht provisions" -- fresh produce, butchered prime meats, exotic condiments, and wines from far-flung regions -- all meant to impress the sailor as well as the chef. In short, whether you're oceangoing or landlubberly, at Delectable Edibles there's nothing "knot" to like.
