12-year-old boy who’d been sick dies near West Palm

Find your favorite deli-style eats at Rappy’s


MENU

Traditional deli items include cold salads, Reuben and Rachel sandwiches, stuffed cabbage, brisket and “noshes” like chopped liver and onions, blintzes and baked knish. There’s also spaghetti and meatballs, roasted chicken and meatloaf.

ATMOSPHERE

The contemporary dining room sits in between a take-away area and a boisterous bar with high-top seating. Geometric chandeliers and dark wooden decor complement dim lighting for an upscale setting.

FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE

Two crispy golden brown potato latkes ($8.95) were a hearty start to the meal, with a soft, stringy potato center, comparable to hash browns you might find at a breakfast joint. The homemade apple sauce tasted like apple pie filling: sweet, with a cinnamon kick. To my surprise, the pan-roasted beef tips ($19.95) were served in a large bowl. On one side, small-to-medium beef chunks and mushrooms sit in a pool of a red wine sauce mixed with sour cream, and on the other is a scoop of mashed potatoes and green beans.

REASON TO GO

On weekdays from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m., you can enjoy happy hour with “bar bites.” Some are selected from the menu, and others are tailored just for the special at the bar and high-tops.

SERVICE

Our waiter helped us decide on an appetizer, which ended up being the highlight of the meal.

NOISE LEVEL

Loud on a Friday night, especially if you’re sitting near the bar during happy hour.

KID FRIENDLY

Kids will love the choices of specialty milkshakes and floats on the menu, as well as hot dogs and cheeseburgers. They may even want to indulge in all-day breakfast items.
