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

The savory side of carrot cake
The savory side of carrot cake

When I was a child, I wanted carrot cake for every birthday. I wasn’t a fan of bakery cakes, expertly plastered with supersweet butter-free frostings in pastel colors. (I did like the realistic decorative little roses, though.) Those fine-crumbed white or yellow cakes did not have much appeal for me, somehow both dry and gummy. Carrot cake, on...
Scape frittata

For garlic lovers, this time of year is like an early holiday season. As we speak, delicious edible flower stalks called scapes are curling their ways from the tops of hardneck garlic plants. When they are available, it’s like a combination of Thanksgiving and Christmas to those who know what to do with a scape. The arrival of scapes means that...

What’s the difference between semifreddo and ice cream? Does it matter?

Semifreddo means semi-frozen. In a good way. A cream-and-custard-packed-in-a-pan-and-stashed-in-the-freezer way. It doesn’t freeze hard, like ice, it freezes soft, like ice cream. Raising questions. For instance: If semifreddo is frozen cream and custard, and ice cream is frozen cream and custard, what separates the two pleasures? Apparently...
