Ten Best Restaurants in Delray Beach

UPDATE: Check out our most recent list of the ten best new restaurants in Delray Beach.

It wasn't all that long ago that Delray Beach was just like any other South Florida beach town -- minus, of course, Palm Beach proper. Oh, how times have changed.

In 1985, the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (C.R.A.), began its plans to revitalize the city by cleaning up the slums, preserving historic buildings, and stimulating the local economy.

The CRA joined hands with the City of Delray Beach, the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, and the Downtown Development Authority to establish the Downtown Marketing Cooperative to market the area and run special events.

Years later, Delray Beach has become the culinary capital of Broward and Palm Beach counties and many other cities are attempting to emulate its progress. So we figured it was about time to compile a list of the ten best restaurants in Delray Beach.
