We'll be staying in Boca from Nov 27-Dec 4. We love good food and are looking for recommendations in Boca or up or down the coast (Lauderdale or Miami area are just fine). We're willing to drive as great food is always the highlight of our vacations. That said, a few caveats - no chains, we'd consider a restaurant based in and with multiple locations in S. Florida, but that's it. We like locally-owned hole-in-the-wall or off-the-beaten-path type places. Any food is good by us, but being from Kansas City we can get good steaks, Italian, BBQ, and comfort food, so if it's one of those it better ROCK! Ethnic places would be ideal, as would seafood. I'd also be happy chasing down some food trucks if they are worth it.
Also - any good food markets or bakeries where we could pick up our food & drink and take back to our place?
Last question - any local breweries or beers worth trying out?
