Palm Beach's version of Let's Make a Deal Oh Pleasepleaseplease kicks off Wednesday, September 1, with the debut of Flavor Palm Beach for 2010.
This third-annual promo to get you out of your house and into a local restaurant runs the entire month of September and features three-course, $20, prix fixe lunches and $30 dinners at more than 30 area eateries. All you do is call the restaurant directly to make reservations (which often are required) or make them at opentable.com.
You can see a list of the restaurants and their Flavor menus here. But if you're too lazy to work your little mousie, here are a few examples.
At Café Chardonnay,
dinner choices include watermelon, arugula, and feta salad with champagne
vinaigrette; pan-roasted swordfish Milanese; and chocolate-raspberry
terrine. Among City Fish Market's
dinner items are crisp, sweet-spicy, Thai chili calamari; Hong Kong-style
steamed cod with sherry, soy, spinach, ginger and scallions; and malted
brownie sundae. And at Pistache, the Flavor menu offers mussels mariniere, hanger steak with pommes frites, and chocolate mousse.
and there's a kickoff party too. It's set for Friday, August 27, from
5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the West Palm waterfront (AKA Frankel's Folly).
There will be music by the String Theory Band, plenty of Stella Artois
and Russian Standard vodka, plus treats from Capitol Grille, III Forks, Reef Road, Talay Thai, and other restaurants. Tickets cost $30 per person, and you can get 'em here.
