Goodbye Grub: Casual restaurant closes at The Gardens Mall


The Counter Custom Burgers, the low-key restaurant featuring build-your-own burgers and decadent adult shakes, has closed its location at The Gardens Mall after just 20 months in business. 

The California-based burger chain issued this message on its Palm Beach Gardens Facebook page: “Thank you for creating burgers at The Counter Palm Beach Gardens. We’re sad to share we have closed this location and invite you to enjoy our burgers when traveling. Check us out at [TheCounter.com]. Let’s keep in touch!” 

The Counter, which has locations in nine states and seven nations, still operates a burger shop at Miami International Airport (between Concourse D and E) and at Naples’ Mercato plaza. 

Its Gardens Mall restaurant, tucked into a quiet corner of the mall, near Bloomingdale’s, opened in June 2015.

Zamfotis estimated that 75 percent of the coffee he sells is hot and 25 percent is iced for most of the year. With the start of iced coffee...

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...
