Recipe of the week: Aran Goyoaga’s Swiss chard, pear and Gruyère tart
 When a friend brought me a bouquet of fresh chard recently for a sick-day soup, I remembered a favorite recipe by the ever-inspired cook, author and food photographer Aran Goyoaga.  Some years ago I watched the woman behind the popular “Cannelle et Vanille” blog make this Swiss chard, pear and Gruyère tart in her then...

Monday bar deal: Wear 80s wrestling garb, get free oysters at Parched Pig

Openings: Bites and Backgammon? Lake Worth’s newest tapas bar is also a game room
 A soulful new tapas spot officially opened this week on Lake Worth’s up-and-coming Lucerne Avenue. It serves an eclectic menu of small plates, plus wine and local beers. But Three of Hearts aims to be more than a place for a quick bite or sip. It is also a space for playing board games. In fact, the menu lists 22 games – everything...

What Dry January? There are wine dinners galore this month
 If you’ve embarked on a new diet plan or have resolved to observe the wine-free month of “Drynuary” (Dry January), you may want to look away.  The wining and dining season is nowhere near over.  It’s as if local restaurants have resolved to tempt us back into holiday mode. You’ll find proof of temptation...

New Year’s cooking: starting the year vegan-ish
 We tend to make all-or-nothing food resolutions when facing a brand new year. (I will go raw! I will go entirely sugar-free! I will go strictly vegan!)  Kudos to those who manage to obey the confines of such resolutions. I am not one of those.  Sure, I love raw foods, sugar-free foods and vegan foods. But I appreciate flexibility...

Neighborhood Gem: Giovanni's is a pizza, pasta, Sinatra kind of place
 Sometimes the essence of a neighborhood gem rises and arcs in the time it takes for an old standard to play: Tidbits of light gossip exchanged on the later side of dinner service dissolve across red-clothed tables. Older couple yields the floor to the Sinatra soundtrack as it comes into focus. Could there be a more beautiful Gershwin tune?...

Costa’s falafel balls need to be on your 2018 Foodie Bucket List
 The small, crispy falafel balls at Costa must be the most addictive bar bites in Palm Beach. It was just one of the dishes I sampled on a visit to the newish Mediterranean restaurant that’s tucked into the second level of the 150 Worth shopping plaza. They’re not on the menu, but Costa’s executive chef, David Valencia, often...

Neighborhood Gem: Puerto Rican soul lives in a soup in Greenacres
 I found Puerto Rican soul in a bowl in a small Greenacres restaurant, and I’m so glad I did. It was Good Friday and I was looking for a good fish/seafood dish and found a winner on the menu at Isla del Coqui restaurant: asopao de camarones (Puerto Rican broth-y rice with shrimp, $11.25). The place is tucked into a suburban strip mall...

Neighborhood Gem: Your out-of-town guests will love The Alchemist
 I have to admit it took me a while to warm up to The Alchemist Gastropub. First, there was the “Gastropub” title that conjured images of bar food that tries too hard. Then there was the jinxed location thing: Two restaurants closed in that same Clematis Street space in the year and a half before Alchemist’s October 2014...

Neighborhood Gem: Get holiday comfort in a cup with Taco Chula's homemade horchata
 What’s better than digging your spoon into a bowl of creamy, cinnamon-y rice pudding? The homemade horchata at Taco Chula. Close your eyes and take a sip – it’s the essence of rice pudding, but in liquid form. You get the richness, the touch of cinnamon, the round notes we love in rice pudding. That’s because the drink...

Neighborhood Gem: Neighbors Market in Gardens is easy to love
 I love a good food bargain. The sight of fresh tortillas for pennies per pound or bold espresso for under two bucks or gorgeous, nice-price produce makes my Cuban refugee soul leap for joy. So when a friend told me about the deals at the Neighbors Market on Northlake Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, I ventured into the charming, family-owned...

Recipe: A Christmas Eve lechón without the backyard production
 What is noche buena without a good lechón? Of course the Cuban tradition of roasting a pig on Christmas Eve has its drawbacks — and not just for the noble pig. It usually means tending to a roasting pit or outdoor Caja China roaster for hours. Of course, a good lechón can be had without the backyard roasting production...

Best in dining 2017: Our Critic’s Choice Awards
 This was the year of “who knew?” I had excellent meals at chain restaurants. I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon. I had good mac-and-cheese at the opening of a WAWA gas station.  Who knew?  Sure, it was the year I devoured crackers slathered with canned Easy Cheese in the throes of Hurricane Irma jitters. But...
