One of Florida's must-try restaurants of 2018 is in Jupiter


This isn’t a list of the best restaurants in Palm Beach County. — but we have one of those here. No, this is about just one place, thanks to Only in Your State who named the 2018 hit list. That’s the restaurants you must try this year throughout the state of Florida. 

So who made the cut from our county? Guanabanas of course. 

No surprise here. Guanabanas is quite the place — definitely the cool kid in the restaurant class. The waterfront spot originally opened as a sandwich shop back in 2004, according to their website. And today, it’s an outdoor dining restaurant and bar with tiki huts and banyan trees. The atmosphere is definitely #VacationMode. 


Not a fan of Guanabanas? Here are 3 other places to dine in Palm Beach County:

»Love Michael Jordan, good food and perfect views? Check out 1000 North, the new Jupiter restaurant that he partly-owns

»Oh decisions! This place can be super healthy or not so much

»Ever been to Aioli? They’ve got a second location now


Back to Guanabanas.

Shoestring, curly, crinkle-cut: Ranking the summer fries

There’s no time of year that isn’t good for French fries, but summer is the best. On the boardwalk, at a county fair and on road trips, where they’re the best thing to eat while driving, one hand in the paper cup, other hand on the wheel. They’re the best thing when you’re chilled to the core and starving because you stayed...

Kick your sour cream and onion dip up a notch with fresh herbs

Think of this as an elegant sour cream and onion dip, with plenty of fresh herbs and the benefit of punchy capers. If you've got them in your pantry, a generous pinch of sumac or nigella seeds are a welcome addition; other fresh herbs such as tarragon, thyme or cilantro are nice, too.

A tome to turn to when life gives you lemons

You may think making lemonade is easy. Not when you’re reading about an 11th-century Egyptian mixture of lemon juice and sugar called qatarmizat, supposedly a proto-lemonade, in “Lemonade With Zest.” I would have thought the Romans knew about it, but it seems that the lemon was not known in those days. This slender volume offers basic...
