What’s delicious in the L-Dub? These six spots, for starters


A newcomer to Lake Worth might be surprised at the eclectic range of dining options available in the quirky, seaside city. It’s a city that manages to mingle bohemian spirits with beach-bar vibes and the occasional fine-dining sparkle.

What’s cooking in the L-Dub? Here are six spots to consider:

Benny’s on the Beach

This beachy restaurant does breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner with a helping of calming ocean views. The executive chef, Jeremy Hanlon, is terrific, a local star who has appeared on Food Network cooking competition shows. His kitchen offerings include a full Spanish-style paella and pinxtos menu, a seafood bake menu and a proprietary “beach bread” (think waffled toast with savory and sweet fillings) menu.

Benny’s on the Beach: 10 S. Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth; 561-582-9001


Suri Tapas Bar

Here’s a place that bridges Lake Worth’s breezy bar scene with its full-service restaurant scene. As its name suggests, Suri specializes in tapas, the small plates that are ideal for happy-hour grazing as well as for dinner. The menu offers shareable plates as well as smaller, “just me” dishes.

Suri Tapas Bar: 707 Lake Ave., Lake Worth; 561-249-7436


Rustico Italiano

Travel to Capri without leaving Lucerne Avenue at this local, family-owned favorite. Classic, beautifully presented classics such as house-made pastas, hearty meat entrées, fish and seafood are on the menu.

Rustico Italiano: 701 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth; 561-547-2782


Paradiso

This fine-dining restaurant has one of the most impressive wine cellars around. On the menu: sumptuous and refined Italian classics. Dessert is always a hit, thanks to the homemade ice cream that’s frozen dramatically tableside with liquid nitrogen.

Paradiso: 625 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth; 561-547-9235


La Bonne Bouche

A bistro and bakery café, La Bonne Bouche is a nice stop for a leisurely breakfast or a tasty bistro lunch. But some might not know that this spot also serves home-style dinner plates created by its Nice-born chef/co-owner Eric Regnier. The alfresco patio is downright charming.

La Bonne Bouche: 516 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth; 561-533-0840


The Beach Club on the Waterfront

Located at the Lake Worth Golf Club, this sprawling restaurant and bar offers lovely views of the greens as well as the Lake Worth Lagoon. Formerly known as Bradley’s Beach Club, the well-varied menu lists American pub favorites. This family-friendly spot offers nightly specials that include two-buck tacos on Tuesdays, $5 burgers on Wednesday and two-for-one dinners Thursday. There’s a bounce house on Family Night Fridays, when kids eat for free.

The Beach Club: One 7th Avenue North, Lake Worth; 561-585-8976

Pizza-type meals are easy to pull together on a weeknight, as long as you plan ahead for dough or keep the store-bought, refrigerated bags of it in stock. But this recipe from John Whaite's new book, "Perfect Plates in 5 Ingredients" reminds us of another way to go. In it, you make a dough with self-rising flour (which contains baking powder...
