Thanks to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, I decided to visit Delray Beach which I had not visited since the early 1980’s. I was impressed with the downtown area and the beach. There are a number of fun restaurants to choose from. My recommendations include:
City Oyster & Sushi Bar: At 213 East Atlantic Ave., this is a great spot for lunch as it has a large outdoor seating area. Thanks to a local friend, I enjoyed the restaurant and had a very good bento box with sushi, shashimi and a California roll. In addition to sushi, they also have sandwiches, salads, seafood and a raw bar.
Located on the Intercoastal Waterway, is Deck 84 at 840 E. Atlantic Ave. which has great outdoor dining overlooking the water.
Le Macaron French Pastries: This is a wonderful French bakery serving pastries, chocolates and colorful macarons. The coconut macarons were really wonderful!! 520 East Atlantic Ave.
Other options include J&J Seafood Bar & Grille at 634 E. Atlantic Ave.and Caffe Luna Rosa which is located across from the Beach at 34 S. Ocean Blvd. This popular spot, is recommended for brunch or dinner. There are many others to choose from.
El Camino gets good reviews for it Mexican fare and cocktails. 15 NE 2nd Ave
