Liz recommends… Burt & Max’s, Bistro Ten Zero One, La Fontana Pizzeria


BURT & MAX’S

This buzzy eatery, located in western Delray Beach, is the collaborative work of two of South Florida’s top restaurateurs, Burt Rapoport and Dennis Max — and it combines all that is right about their individual restaurant ventures. Expect large portions, comfort entrees and upscale suburban vibe.

Burt & Max’s: 9089 W Atlantic Ave., Suite 100 (in the Delray Marketplace), Delray Beach; 561-638-6380

BISTRO TEN ZERO ONE

This spot, located inside the West Palm Beach Marriott, has become a local hub of sorts for well-paired wine dinners, craft brew and inspired American bistro dishes. Expertly prepared, the food is made all the better by local and regional ingredients.

Bistro Ten Zero One: 1001 Okeechobee Blvd, West Palm Beach; 561-833-1234

LA FONTANA PIZZERIA

There’s more than good Italian grub at this family-owned, North Palm pizzeria: there’s a delicious Balkan menu, reflecting the family’s Bosnian roots. Try the homemade Bosnian bread with the homemade clotted cream, the cured meats, savory pastry turnover and delicious Balkan pizza.

La Fontana: 1201 U.S. Highway 1, Suite 38 (in the Crystal Tree Plaza just behind the fountain), North Palm Beach; 561-408-3295

Uncle Tai’s Chinese restaurant bids farewell to Boca after 32 years

 Uncle Tai’s Hunan-style restaurant might as well have been the bustling dining room in a relative’s home.

What to do with a perfect avocado
What to do with a perfect avocado

Neither granite-hard nor squishably soft, it should yield only slightly when pressed, maintain its integrity when sliced, and feel like butter on the tongue when eaten. Sadly, most of the avocados I bring home fall short in all kinds of fibrous, mushy, black-speckled ways. The mediocre ones get trimmed to salvage...
