Frank and Dino's, The Daisy Coffee House, and Other Restaurant Openings

Frank and Dino's in Deerfield Beach is on the verge of opening, the Italian-American spot that pays homage to the Rat Pack. The restaurant, originally scheduled to debut in October, is one of two from Dennis Max of Max's Grille and Max's Harvest scheduled to open this season. Assaggio del Forno is on track for a mid-January opening in Boca.

Located in the former Marcello's space at 718 S. Federal Highway, the dinner-only restaurant features brick, dark wood, and leather banquets in this 120-seat restaurant with a patio. The menu is red sauce classics: spaghetti and meatballs and chicken scarpariello on the menu. The restaurant is looking for servers, bartenders, and hostesses.

More restaurant news after the jump.

bottle selection. Small bites like cheese and meat plates and bar

snacks will be offered, as well as a full dinner menu by executive chef
