This month, restaurants from Boca Raton to Palm Beach are prepared to satisfy every craving with scrumptious, wallet-friendly creations too good to pass up

By Mary Thurwachter

Those of us who live in South Florida year-round find September delicious. The reason? Many of the area’s best restaurants deliver dining deals all month, giving us the opportunity to enjoy creative, inventive dishes from top chefs. Between Flavor Palm Beach (www.flavorpb.com), and Boca Raton Restaurant Month (www.bocarestaurantmonth.com), the choices are many.


Boca Raton Restaurant Month, new this year, has a theme of “Boca Loves New York,” a nod to Boca Raton’s large number of New York-inspired eateries.Participating restaurants offer three-course meals featuring signature dishes at reduced prices: $21-$25 for lunch and $36-$40 for dinner.  In keeping with the theme, each restaurant will have at least one New York-inspired dish or cocktail (think Manhattan clam chowder or New York cheesecake). For example, at the Melting Pot, an iconic Boca Raton eatery for 27 years, a New York cheesecake fondue dessert has been created for the September menu.
Participating restaurants include:
