Luigi's Opens on Clematis

Clematis Street's challenge to Atlantic Avenue as Palm Beach's premier Restaurant Row calls and raises one more with the debut of Luigi's Italian Restaurant (118 Clematis St., 561-833-4456) in the former Cabana space a meatball's throw from West Palm's revitalized waterfront. 

Proprietor Glenn Frechter, who also owns the Cabana chainlet, tabbed one-time Café Martorano chef Nelson Benitez to head up the kitchen of the casual, modestly priced joint, where only one entrée tops $20.
