NE OH hound coming to visit the Deerfield Beach area for 4 days this labor day weekend (yes, I plan ahead). I am allergic to shellfish and am not much of a fish lover (I know, I know, but what can I tell you), so I'm looking for great, houndish places that don't focus so strongly on the seafood side of life.
Am planning on hitting the Vine Bar, Laspada's hoagies and Taqueria Dona Raquel but would love some other suggestions from those familiar with the area. I love tapas, love mediterranean food, middle eastern, french, mexican, "american," wine and spirits. Would love a good Jewish deli if there's one in the area. I love a good food truck but also want to consider really nice, higher end places and everything in between. I'm less about the view (I can go to the ocean separately) and more about the good eats.
I will be staying with a friend who is a burgeoning "foodie" who is looking for guidance from me as she branches out into trying new things. We are going to go food shopping when I get there and I'm going to give her some cooking lessons. If you have suggestions for great food specialty shops, including those that that focus on fresh and local or good ethnic stuff, please recommend those as well. I'm basically completely unfamiliar with the area but have a good flexibility to be anywhere in and around Deerfield, including Ft Lauderdale, Pompano, Delray, Boca, etc.
Thanks, fellow hounds!
