Elisabetta’s Ristorante

32 E. Atlantic Ave

This wonderful Italian restaurant opened July 24, 2019. It’s located on Atlantic Ave. All of Elisabetta's pasta, bread, gelati, pastries & cookies are made in house daily.

The chef is Lisabet Summa, its namesake and she is very particular about her pastas and offerings. For her it is the meticulous care put into each dish which is most important like the Mafaldine Pasta ribbons which old a hearty amatriciana sauce or the Puttanesca Pasta which features a rich herbed sauce deepened with Sicilian ingredients including pistachios and mild white anchovies. Begin your dinner with Sicilian Olives and Provolone with orange, thyme, peppercorn, chilis.  Delicious!

There are both short and long pasta dishes with creative plays on ingredients like Linguine Nere with shrimp, yellow tomatoes, calabrian chilis and mint.The restaurant has a selection of house- cured meats which make their salumi boards outrageously delicious.

Oceano Kitchen

201 E Ocean Ave, Lantana, FL 33462

Oceano Kitchen is a very casual neighborhood restaurant run by husband and wife team, Jeremy & Cindy Bearman. Oceano receives accolades from all who have discovered it. Both Jeremy and Cindy and their chefs have incredible restaurant backgrounds. Jeremy was part of the opening of Daniel Boulud’s Bistro Moderne in NYC where he worked his way up to the position of Executive Sous Chef. Cindy Bearman’ background is equally spectacular having worked at the Gothem Bar & Grill, DB Bistro Moderne, Café Boulud and Le Cirque. She worked with Chef Bradley Ogden, a pioneer of the “farm to table” movement in Las Vegas where she cultivated the skills of using well-sourced and sustainable ingredients. Upon returning to NYC, she was the pastry chef at Jean-Georges’ ABC Kitchen and was the food editor for Martha Stewart Living and Weddings.

Each morning a new dinner menu is created inspired by what local farmers, fishermen and food purveyors have available. This is a very small restaurant and it is a cash only restaurant. It is worth the adventure and they have an ATM machine.



DECK 84

840 E Atlantic Ave, Delíay Beach, ÏL 33483

Whether you arrive by boat, car or bike, you will love this casual restaurant on the intracoastal waterway. The Baja Fish Tacos, Signature Mahi - Mahi, and Special Blend Deck Burgers are delishous and so are the cocktails.
