Jake Miller - Back To The Start Tour - Ft. Lauderdale, FL

(Reporter and Photographer - Kiersten Pacelli) - Jake Miller closes out his Back To The Start Tour with his original fans at his home base in South Florida. The final show took place at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Hometown friends and family filled the venue, bringing all the hype and energy needed to make the evening unforgettable.

Jake’s fourth national headline tour, and his first tour without a record label behind him was an overwhelming success. His comments on Instagram following the show laid it out simply- “you guys [the fans] are my label now”. This loyal following, seen all over social media, has been coined the “Millertary”.

The vibe for the night was upbeat with a homey, locals-only feel. All three openers, including @thestolen who opened for Jake throughout the tour, brought their A-game. The night, and the tour as a whole, ended with a bang- just as Jake expected it to. Post-show he announced, “we may already be planning another tour”. Keep a lookout for Jake’s new music and next tours sneak peeks. (FULL STORY AND PICS)

DELRAY BEACH (June 22, 2021) - What would deliveries look like if you could order all your favorite dishes from all your favorite restaurants in one go? You're about to find out. Delray Beach Market, America's new model food hall and urban hub for burgeoning artists, community and creativity, is officially launching delivery. But not delivery as any of us knows it. Delray Beach Market has partnered with longstanding delivery service Delivery Dudes to create an exclusive, first-of-its-kind technology that allows diners to order from as many vendors as they would like during one single transaction, available for delivery or pickup.

Using groundbreaking technology built over a span of 18 months to integrate seamlessly with Delray Beach Market's point of sale system, this is the first time ordering from multiple vendors to one address will be made possible. And the possibilities are now officially endless. Delray Beach Market fans can peruse the menus of multiple eateries such as Alpine 210, Surry Co. Smoke House, Tekka Bar, Salvo's Pizzeria, Dad's Burgers, Ferdo's Grill, Tip to Tail, Roots, Incredibowl and over 25+ unique eateries housed within the Market, ordering one or multiple dishes from each one simultaneously, formally making having lunch or dinner delivered 100% better than ever.

And with Governor DeSantis recently signing a bill approving the sale of alcohol-to-go drinks permanently, Delray Beach Market's unique delivery and take out model will also make alcohol available to-go.

"Easy ordering from all of our coveted eateries was the goal for Delray Beach Market," explains Craig O'Keefe, Managing Partner for Clique Hospitality. We presented Delivery Dudes with our vision 18 months ago and are really proud of the resulting technology as well as our being first to launch this unique shared delivery concept to the industry. Our goal was one order, one check-- with multiple possibilities for culinary experience. In the same manner that visitors can tour the Market to enjoy lunch and dinner and happy hour from multiple eateries at Florida's largest food hall, we wanted the delivery and takeout experience to be just as exciting and easy to order," adds O'Keefe.

"We are all about providing amazing delivery solutions and are thrilled and thankful to have had the opportunity to develop this technology for Delray Beach Market," says Oliver Tito, Vice President of Sales for Delivery Dudes. "Our relationship with Menin Development and Clique

Hospitality has been rock solid from the start, and it's a huge honor and accomplishment that we are the first delivery company to create a groundbreaking solution for blended ordering and delivery from multiple vendors in one smooth transaction."

Diners can visit to check out a full list of vendors and their offerings or head straight to to place their order.

NEW YORK– SiriusXM announced today that GRAMMY award winning producer and DJ Diplo will launch his own radio channel, Diplo’s Revolution, exclusively on SiriusXM.

The channel, which will launch on Thursday, March 22, will feature global rhythmic music hand-selected by Diplo, as well as regular original shows hosted by Diplo, Dillon Francis and Major Lazer members Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Diplo’s Revolution will also showcase the biggest songs in global, hip hop, experimental and underground dance culture.

The channel will air live festival coverage from the most important electronic music festivals around the world including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and more. In addition to championing the diverse and eclectic musical tastes that have put Diplo at the forefront of music and pop culture, Diplo’s Revolution will also include songs from his solo projects, Major Lazer, Jack Ü and further upcoming collaborations.

Diplo’s exclusive SiriusXM channel will launch with a special live performance from the Faena Theater in Miami Beach on Thursday, March 22 at 9:00 pm ET. This exclusive performance, for SiriusXM subscribers, will feature DJ sets from Diplo and friends, and will air live on Diplo’s Revolution, on SiriusXM channel 52 and through the SiriusXM app.   

"I'm so stoked to be starting my own channel with SiriusXM. Back in 2012 I had a show with them called 'Blow Your Head,' and it's awesome to be back in the family launching this project together. I'm excited to share my favorite music from all over the world, and can't wait to have tons of friends on to do the same," said Diplo.

“It’s exciting to have GRAMMY winner Diplo as part of the SiriusXM family. I have no doubt that Diplo’s Revolution will quickly become a listener favorite among our already popular dance channels, especially given his work as not only a solo artist but as part of Jack Ü and Major Lazer,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. “A well-respected producer, tastemaker, DJ, writer and performer, Diplo will share his singular point of view with SiriusXM listeners, exposing them to the most important dance music from around the globe.”

A global superstar, Diplo has worked with some of today’s most important artists including Beyoncé, Justin Bieber and The Weeknd, and has toured the world solo as Diplo, as one half of Jack Ü with Skrillex and as one third of Major Lazer. Diplo’s new exclusive SiriusXM channel will highlight the renowned producer’s worldwide influence.

Diplo’s Revolution is the latest SiriusXM channel created with iconic and leading artists, including Eminem’s Shade 45, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Radio, The Beatles Channel, Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville, Garth Brooks’ The Garth Channel, Willie Nelson’s Willie’s Roadhouse, Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio, Tom Petty Radio, Pearl Jam Radio, B.B. King’s Bluesville, Elvis Radio, Siriusly Sinatra, and Ozzy Osbourne’s Ozzy’s Boneyard.

SiriusXM subscribers will be able to listen to Diplo’s Revolution, channel 52, on SiriusXM radios, and those with streaming access can listen online, on-the-go with the SiriusXM mobile app and at home on a wide variety of connected devices including smart TVs, Amazon Alexa devices, Apple TV, PlayStation, Roku, Sonos speakers and more.

Viking Grand European River Cruise - December 2021
Amsterdam to Budapest

This review will focus on the Viking experience for those curious about a European River Cruise on this fabulous cruise line. The photo expose we included CLICK HERE will demonstrate the picturesque history and vibrancy of the Christmas season cruising on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers.

We will start this review from the moment of our first contact to book cruise, directly with Viking. The friendly and professional nature of Esteban, our booking agent set the stage making this journey stress free in a time where the world is dominated by concerns of COVID and international travel. We had a ton of questions and concerns which he patiently walked us through. The journey is a 15 day tour down the rivers connecting the North Sea to the Black Sea from Amsterdam to Budapest. We arrived into Amsterdam after a long day of flight delays and lost luggage (had to change planes due to a bird strike to start the day). We made it to the port and boarded the long ship "Viking TIR" where we were warmly greeted by Eva and Postez. We had nice conversations throughout our time. They immediately contacted Delta and worked to find our luggage, set us up with important toiletries and guided us to our stateroom. We enjoyed a cocktail in the lounge and made or way to our first dinner then a brief visit into Amsterdam. Before we left port, our luggage arrived via FedEx courier - what a relief.

The daily meal schedule includes fresh cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner with regional 'specials' offered. There is also a fixed menu (salads, steak, fish, chicken) for the less adventurous. Each meal includes beer or wine if desired and nice assortment of desserts. Each day Chef Adrian presents his specials at the port briefing along with the wines of the region presented by the Maître d, Martha. The Fresh bakery items prepared every morning to compliment the hot breakfast menu with assorted juices, fruits, breads, cheeses. Fresh regional soups and salads were offered along with cheeses and breads. Carla and Cruz were our waiters daily. The service levels were excellent and always helped with making our selections easy and our glasses full. There is a nice bar in the lounge area that is well stocked with premium brands of liquor and wine. They offer an optional beverage package for a modest price $299 PP for the 15 days that includes open bar all day and premium wines with dinner. If you like premium drinks and fabulous wines, this package is for you.

Wi-Fi is included on ship and while on board some of the premium coaches. Every port includes free guided tours daily. They provide transportation and professional and knowledgeable guides specific to each port with listening devices. Some excursions also included lunch at awesome restaurants with great food, beer and wine if desired. There were many optional tours for additional fees as well. During the voyage we visited several UNESCO World Heritage sites. UNESCO is something of cultural or historical importance - and river cruise lines are understandably proud of how many such sites they're able to work into a given itinerary. The history along the way dates back to over 1000 year old castles, churches and cobble stone streets to more modern (20th century) locations like the Nuremberg trials courtroom and Nazi Rally Grounds and a ton in between. On board the days were full of activities, including glass blowing demonstration, piano player in the lounge, shuffle board and mini golf on the sun deck to name a few. Our room steward made up our room multiple times a day. By the time we came back from breakfast, it was like new, stocked with bottled water, fresh linens and towels The room also included floor to ceiling and wall to wall sliding glass insulated windows, a mini fridge, heated bathroom floors, ample closet space and a nice flat screen TV.

The weather in December was well, mostly cloudy and ranged from 30-45`F, typical for the time of year, It was lovely when the sun did pop out the few times. The Christmas Markets we visited were in Cologne, Vienna and Budapest. We enjoyed the larger of the 3 in Cologne. In fairness, Vienna opened up from complete shut-down for the 1st time in 4 weeks, the day we arrived. Budapest's were smaller but the food looked amazing. All 3 offered the obvious trinkles, trinkets and what-nots to go with the beer and Gluhwein, all reasonably priced. David the Program Director and ships' host was informative, friendly and attentive to everyone, he was everywhere, making sure every tour was on time and everyone accounted for. I can honestly say the Viking is lucky to have such an outstanding person on their team. Viking does daily COVID testing with overnight results and masks in all public places on board, unless eating or drinking. Viking had invested $300MM in COVID testing, thermal cameras and some on board PCR testing equipment across its fleet. The goal is safety of the its passengers and crew. They seem to be very transparent with this and other shipboard instances. Along the way, a freight barge crashed into one lock causing damage. The damage had to be repaired before we could proceed. This caused a 2 day delay of our course up river. However, Viking to the rescue - bringing in additional coaches to keep tours on schedule. The ship did catch up to normal schedule and we never missed a tour or excursion. At one point they considered brining in a different ship on the other side of the lock and transfer the entire passengers and crew to continue. Luckily this was not needed as I can only imagine the logistical nightmare this would cause.

There are some 80+ locks that Captain Jasper navigated through along the route to adjust from sea level (Amsterdam) to crossing the continental divide (approximately 1300 feet in elevation). The locks are interesting to see how the ship was designed to fit in each one, with inches to spare on either side while in the lock. The ship glides smooth and usually difficult to tell if you are even moving. The favorite parts of the journey for us included (in no particular order), the staffs personality and professionalism, the delicious food and drinks, the informative tours and the spotless ship.

CLICK HERE for our photos. Along the way, we crossed over 1000 miles, 4 countries (Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Hungry) and visited 15 towns/cities/ports (Amsterdam, Kinderdijk, Cologne, Koblenz, Miltenberg, Wertheim, Wurzburg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, Munich, Melk, Vienna and Budapest). Viking long ships hold approximately 190 in 99 staterooms ranging from enormous suites to below deck cabins. All have outside views. This is all managed by a crew of 44 members. Our ship was very comfortable with 98 passengers, no one under 18 is allowed to be on the tour. Would we do Viking again, absolutely…

Trevor Noah brings his standup to Hollywood (FL) – “Back To Abnormal”

This was my first visit to the Hard Rock Live since the re-opening of the amazing 7000 seat venue in Hollywood, Florida. Every comfortable seat has a great view in the semi-circle arena style auditorium. The prices at the concession stands are on the ‘pricey’ side, but this review is not about the venue – it is for the Trevor Noah “Back To Abnormal” World Tour. The South African born comedian and television host of the Daily Show on Comedy Central, performed in front of a sold-out crowd.

His blend of local sharp wit (comparing Dade and Broward county drivers was a funny bit) and national and global political situations like gun ownership transitioned seamlessly. During his hour and a half monolog style delivery, he pokes fun at his own personal situations like spending more time with his kids during the pandemic to a bit where the audience joins in to his version of the Niel Diamond classic, “Sweet Caroline” – Oh, oh, oh.

Along the way, he poses cliché bits along with more edgy topics like imitating Boris Johnson and Donald Trump catching the COVID after publicly playing it down, for example. Noah’s lively delivery fills the venue with laughs and cheers, demonstrating his skill as of classic standup comedian. He enjoys mass appeal (in a positive way) and fills the audience with much needed laughs after a difficult 18 months.


Blood Bags, Fake Eye Balls,Vampire Teeth and More

The new DELRAY BEACH MARKET - As If Delray Beach Could Have Too Much Flavor

Delray Beach Market is an unbelievable new food hall located in downtown Delray. Just off Atlantic at 33 SE 3rd Avenue, Delray Beach Market is destined to be a community landmark for decades to come. The "tropical modern" building built from the ground up was derived from a vision of Craig Menin, and came to fruition during COVID.

Presenting 150,000 square feet of space and four levels including a 223 space parking garage (with EV chargers), the $60 million food hall building is touted as Florida's largest.

There is significant comfortable indoor and outdoor seating with a large raw bar counter service and separate cocktail bar. The motif is vintage nautical, that of a wharf-side design. The Riverwalk along the Jupiter Inlet and Lighthouse is picturesque and roomy. There is also a marina with many slips for boaters that would like to stop in and have lunch or dinner.

Mark (our waiter) was friendly, prompt and courteous. He offered a few recommendations that included a refreshing "Casablanca" (served as a 'Soft Cocktail" but we added a bit of rum to it) and "La Stephanie". Both pictured in our gallery.

We selected options from their extensive "All Day Menu". For starters, an order of "Lobster and Shrimp Dy-no-mite!" a very different kind of appetizer that is extremely tasty and decadent. For lunch we opted for one of the fresh catches of the day, Triple Tail prepared with the Creole Pecan-Macadamia Nut Crust and Lobster Cognac Sauce - unbelievable combo... We also indulged in the Cajun Charred Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce and Lucky Fries, cooked a perfect medium.

Happy Hour is daily 4-6PM with discounted refreshments and a long list of appetizers served at the bar.

Beacon, the full service contemporary American Grill. We had a quick tour of the building. This is more upscale and comfortable with great views of the Inlet and if you like and a "showpiece exhibition kitchen", you can have a front row seat with a chic modern design.

Then there is Topside, a rooftop tapas and craft cocktail lounge with an open air, tiki kind of experience with tropical décor and again, amazing views of the property and waterway. They also offer a free "open to the public" viewing area if you'd simply like to take in the view.

Lastly, there is the Tacklebox - A Jupiter Seafood boutique store in front. The catch is fresh, brought in daily from local fishermen. They also offer take out sandwiches, poke bowls and accompaniments.

Reservations are recommended and for more details and full menus, consider viewing their web site at, 1116 Love St, Jupiter, FL 33477 and (561) 532-3280 for reservations. Visit our full photo gallery HERE to see additional photos of this location.

Avalon - Steak & Seafood Coming to Delray


Marquee Avalon is a fresh, new, shining spot in the heart of Delray's Atlantic Avenue, right next door to Roccos Tacos. We enjoyed a pre-grand opneing meal hosted by Creator and Founder, Curt Huegel and Antonello Paganuzzi - Director of Operations. The entire staff was attentive, professional and made us feel right at home. The photos we shot in this article are what you can expect to see. The appetizers included the Lump Crab Cocktail and Angry Lobster. The crab was sweet and served with a mustard sauce, wonderfully done. The Angry Lobster was an decadent find on the menu. The lobster (halved) was fresh and the sauce was a perfect blend of spice and character. We opted to endulge in the Wet Aged Petit Filetand NY Strip. This were cooked to a perfect medium as requested, with a light drawn butter for a bit of added flavor. They do offer a house made steak sauce and a chimichurri sauce as additional accompaniments. We tried the NY Cheesecake, that melted in our mouths, not too heavy, and certainly not light.

This is a comfortable, well run establishment with a great steak and seafood menu that we expect will be around for decades to come. Be sure to tell them that South Florida Free Press recommended them to you.

Conceptualized by New York's veteran hospitality operators Host Restaurants, the 30-year visionaries behind award-winning dining institutions including Scarpetta, Campagnola, American Cut, Bill's Townhouse, and many others, Avalon will showcase the best in land and sea from all coasts with modern dishes taking star at the dinner plate inside an atmosphere designed to radiate approachable, unstuffy elegance.

Affectionately named Avalon, after the legendary island in the Arthurian legend, a place of haven and purity fabled for its restorative healing powers, Avalon will be about bringing guests who love life on the water and life by the sea to enjoy a unique new comfort-minded steakhouse experience designed to evoke an air of modern tranquility and escapism through the art of delivering upon a great quality night out.

NY Strip Steak"At Avalon, we want you to linger longer, enjoy your time here and not feel pressured to rush your meal. Dinner was made to savor; life is too short to not enjoy a great quality steak," explains Host Restaurants President and Founder Curt Huegel.

When it opens this month, Avalon will bring a robust, sustainably-sourced premium selection of prime, organic, grass fed, hormone, steroid, and antibiotic free offerings, including steaks, beef, poultry, and seafood to South Florida's dining scene, anchored by an esteemed 250 bottle wine list for wine lovers of all regions, showcasing sought after labels from unique wineries around the world. Guests who prefer spirit-centric pairings to their meal will also delight in Avalon's creatively conceived cocktails presenting inventive twists on classic libations.

Finding the perfect brick and mortar location in South Florida for Avalon was years in the making, explains Huegel. "We were waiting for the perfect spot to present itself in South Florida for the past five to seven years and were grateful to have had Menin Development offer Avalon's address on the Avenue. So many of our top patrons have second homes and extended family members whom they visit in Palm Beach, Boca, Delray Beach and around South Florida, and whenever they would return to New York, they would express their wishes and wants, sharing what was missing for them with existing concepts in town. We finally found the right space and the timing to make the move was right. We want our loyal guests to know that we couldn't be more excited to reveal Avalon, a steakhouse expressly designed with these guests in mind," says Huegel.

Avalon's beachy yet stylish interiors were also designed with intention. Bright, naturally lit and intimate, pristine and nautically-inspired, the atmosphere and palette is soft, soothing and designed to evoke the feeling of relishing in a tranquil and relaxing, stylish day at sea. Elegant neutrals and oceanic blues are topped off by the addition of picturesque coastal greens. The expansive indoor/outdoor bar was designed for laid-back and non-formal easy eating, keeping parties of one and two in mind. There will be two traditional dining levels - al fresco street dining for guests who prefer sight-seeing passerbys and second floor dining for a more intimate, social dining experience. All dining areas at Avalon will be implementing the strictest of COVID-19 protocols and are mindful of personal space and superior comfort.

"We believe that a memorable dining experience is one that should provide a relaxing, supportive, inclusive guest experience that is customer-centric without judgement or attitude. Our entire premise for any restaurant that we build, is to build for and around the guest experience. Avalon was expressly designed to deliver for the South Florida customer," says Huegel.

Cooking techniques at Avalon will take modern day guest requests into mind, "Ten years ago, the edgy steakhouse was defined by lobster mac and cheese; today the guest need has evolved. We're seeing health-minded requests and protein-centric asks. Guests are looking for clean comfort food, well prepared plates where the quality of the ingredients stand on their own merit. Avalon will present an abundance of seasonally-sourced organic meats, produce and fish that won't cut corners when it comes to quality, prepared to our guests' desired temperature, keeping everyday affordability in mind."

Avalon was designed to be the place to gather and meet your best friends, your family members, your fellow entrepreneurs. "It's about creating an atmosphere of familiarity and comfort. We'll be the kind of establishment that gets excited when our guests step into the room. We want our team to remember your name and remember what you love to eat. We're committed to accessible price points that won't compromise quality and will honor that premise by always staying innovative and fresh with weekly rotating specials and of course, everyone's fan favorite - a unique, weekly lifestyle happy hour destination where you can get excited about the fellow guests and dynamic personalities you'll connect with at our bars. We're excited to present a haven we felt the community deserved after hearing about the needs for some time."

Signature dishes at Avalon will encompass modern steakhouse classics cooked to preferred temperatures such as Filet Mignon, 28-Day Dry-Aged Prime Ribeye, 36 oz. Tomahawk for 2 , to sustainably-sourced seafood specialties including Whole Roasted Fish of the Day, 32 oz Aged Bone In "Tuna Ribeye", Scallop Carpaccio with Huckleberry Agro Dolce, Spiced Cashew, Citrus Segments Basil Oil, Marigold, Angry Lobster with Fermented House Sriracha, Ginger, Pullman Toast, to light entrees for those health minded or vegetarian such as Roasted Cauliflower with Tahini, Herb Vinaigrette, Goat Cheese, Basil as well as inventive comfort dishes including Kimchi Fried Rice.

BOCA RATON, FL – Sammy J’s Kitchen + Cocktails, a new full-service restaurant set inside a modern American kitchen, will open its doors in Boca Raton, Florida this October. Sammy J’s will offer internationally-inspired cuisine where guests can enjoy an appetizer while sipping on a cocktail or take a seat for a fabulous, yet comfortable dining experience.

Founders and business partners of two years, Samir Changela and Jason Levine, bring over 15 years of experience in the restaurant industry to their namesake restaurant. “We finally had the opportunity to collectively create a concept that we believe will be new, exciting and a staple in this community for years to come,” says Changela. “After countless brainstorming sessions over drinks, a lightbulb went off and Sammy J’s was born.”

Boasting a fresh, modern, comfortable feel with a vintage sports theme throughout, Sammy J’s Kitchen + Cocktails is a concept that truly has something for everyone. Whether you want to take in a happening happy hour, catch a game and indulge in a great meal, or take the whole family out for dinner, Sammy J’s is the go-to spot.

The upscale but casual restaurant, features worldly menu options that come together using the freshest ingredients around, in an entirely scratch kitchen. Culinary Director & Executive Chef, Randy Luedders, will head the Sammy J’s kitchen, producing recipes learned from his over 36 years in the field.

“I envision Sammy J’s to become known for having such amazing food offerings that the guest has no choice but to tell their family, friends and coworkers how much they are missing by not frequenting our restaurant,” said Luedders. “I want it to become ‘your neighborhood restaurant and bar’ where sometimes you go for a bite and a cocktail and other times you go for an incredible dinner or brunch.”

Additionally, the eatery will offer an extensive menu of beer and wine featuring 44 beers on draft along with a diverse craft beer list; an eclectic wine list featuring 46 wines and 17 by the glass; an exceptional whiskey, scotch, and bourbon selection, as well as a seasonal cocktail menu. Distinctive finishing touches include a chalkboard wall listing the beer, cocktail, and wine lists, as well as a digital jukebox which will play all of the latest hits.

Farmer’s Table ( is Boca Raton’s largest health-focused dining destination. They were established by co-founders Joseph Giannuzzi and Mitchell Robbins. “Since 2013, Farmer’s Table has spearheaded a complete way of healthy living across all facets of the guest experience. They have transformed typical dining tropes through informative servers, a seasonally-driven menu that highlights natural flavors, and an educational component focusing on all aspects of wellness,” says The Gab Group CEO Michelle Soudry. “This restaurant caters to the discerning individuals looking for a total lifestyle approach at all levels of dining.”

Fresh, healthy and delicious are the underpinnings of any Farmer’s Table meal– whether it’s bound for the dining room, expansive banquet hall or Farmer’s Table Express, an extension of the restaurant featuring ready-to-eat signature menu items packaged in cryovac bags. Featuring menus by Culinary Director Chef Michael Schenk (pictured), all dishes at Farmer’s Table are scratch-made and center on fresh, whole ingredients devoid of excess salt, fat or toxins, with no cream, butter, deep fryer or microwave on the premises.

“Eating well shouldn’t require sacrifice – whether that’s time, money or quality ingredients – which is the driving force behind everything we do at Farmer’s Table,” remarks Joseph Giannuzzi, who collaborates with Chef Schenk on all menus to maintain their strict adherence to quality standards. “We’re more than a restaurant, we are a destination to grab a meal, linger and celebrate a lifestyle of wellness.”

Located in the Wyndham Hotel on North Military Trail, Farmer’s Table is open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. An expansive dining room accommodates groups of various sizes, with additional banquet space and private dining areas for parties, corporate events, weddings and more.

We had the pleaseure of dining in their out door area with a pool view. The weather was perfect which complimented a very comfortable experience. We sampled many of the "starters" - recommending the Cucumber Avocado "Tartare", where yo ucan add Seared Tuna, POke or Shrimp. The Maple Glazed Baby Back Ribs were seasoned and grilled to perfection, and lets not forget the Buffalo Cauliflower "Drummettes", a unique twist. We also tried a Cauliflower,Beets and Brie Flatbread. This was sout of the norm for me as far as flatbread go, but I can attest to the marvoulous flavor in every bite. We then stepped into 'Supper'. Among the dishes presented (pictured in our slideshow) included Seared Local Swordfish, Grass-Fed Beef Short Rib, Rainbow Trout. The Kombucha Brick Chicken is a house favorite, and lives up to its hype. The "Spasta" & Meatballs was also a flavorful dish, "Spasta" being of course being Squash Pasta along with a Ramen Bowl with a choice of Chicken or Shrimp (or Tofu or Vegan options). The deserts were also as unique and delicious, including the dairy-free Ice Cream, Carrot Cake, Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie, Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding and oh yes, the Milk Shake.

The also have full bar service with some equally special cocktails, elixers and speciality coffees and cordials. The Elixers I just mentioned are all made in-house and can be consumed staright or mixed with your favorites liquors. You gotta give these a try.

Keep in mind, they use 2/3rds less salt then other restaurants in all of their dishes. They never use or cook with cream or butter. The primary cooking agent is sunflower seed oil. They follow the EWG’s sourcing guidelines. All produce served from their “Dirty Dozen” list is always purchased 100% organic. They do not deep fat fry or microwave anything. All the seafood served is sustainably caught, captured, or raised. This was a mind opening experience for me and I couldn't believe the flavors were awesome (and more importantly - healthy), without all the traditional salts, oils, creams and the like. This restaurants' menus has something for everyone and I'm confimdent you will enjoy the experience. Tell 'em South Florid Free Press sent you. MORE PICS of most of the 'Goodness'

Located in Boca Raton’s upscale Mizner Park

Loch Bar is a classic seafood tavern. Featuring one of South Florida's largest raw bars, it will complement the state’s most substantial whiskey menu with a wide selection of craft beers and handcrafted cocktails. Loch Bar also features live music 7 days a week!

In Mizner Park, there's an impressive raw bar and great seafood selection. I used to come here when it was the night club Spin, which was years ago. They definitely brought class in this spot. The interior is beautiful. Think large french bistro style with a long bar with plenty of seating and a spacious dining area that is tastefully decorated. There is a smaller bar outside with limited seating that is a nice gathering spot.

The service is great, very attentive and recites the menu and its features... To start on the appetizer list, we sampled the Skirt Steak Lettuce Wraps and the Cajun Cauliflower - both very flavorful. This was followed by a Shellfish Tower, loaded with Oysters, Clams on the half shell, Mussels, Lobster Tails, King Crab Legs, Shrimp Cocktail, Yellow Fin Tuna Poke - holy smokes, bring a few people to share this wonder display of seafood. The main course included Filet MIgnon and my favorite of the evening, Maryland Crab Cakes. Perfectly done, all crab with mixed greens and remoulade - trying these are a must.

Their homemade deserts featured Apple Crisp with Bourbon Sauce (a weakness of mine), vanilla whipped cream and a Smith Island Cake - 17 layers of decadent chocolate gonoche and yellow cake.

All in all, a wonderful experience in the heart of Mizner. Click HERE - MORE PICS OF LOCH BAR AND ITS FLAVOR They are open all week, 11AM til midnight. Loch Bar - 346 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, Florida 33432 - Phone 561.939.6600
