• If you're going to work in a restaurant, you may as well work in one that offers a killer selection of beer. That would be Yard House, which is opening next month in the Village at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach and is now hiring some 200 folks to do everything from cook and clean to pour and serve. If you need a gig (and maybe to quench your thirst), apply at 601 Silks Run, Ste. 1345, Village at Gulfstream Park; 800-336-5336.
• Folks needing a little nourishment for an evening of culture should check out the new prix fixe pre-theater menu from Rhythm Café
(3800 S. Dixie Highway; 561-833-3406), the under-the-radar local favorite
in industrial West Palm. The three-course, $21.95 menu is available
from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and features choices like caesar and wedge
salads or the day's soup to start, followed by Key lime chicken or
jambalaya fettucine or bouef Bourguignon as an entrée, and a chocolate-chip cookie and choice of house-made ice creams for dessert.
• If eating your own weight in meat (and veggies and salad and
charcuterie and cheese and so on) isn't quite your thing, you can still
go to ZED451
and eat like a normal person. The New World churrascuria in Boca is now
dishing a roster of small, tapas-style dishes ranging from $10
to $14 that include Asian pork belly with five-spice hoisin sauce,
tempura mahi with orange glaze and mango salsa, and fire-grilled rib eye
with balsamic-glazed onions. There's a decent menu of mixology-type
cocktails too, so you might just be better off ZED.
