Summer is winding down but there’s still some good deals for foodies in South Florida.
Among the best is at Chez l’Epicier on Palm Beach. Through Oct. 30, guests can get specials that include all-you-eat P.E.I mussels and French fries on Thursdays. The mussels are prepared with five different sauces – white wine, shallot and garlic; Dijon mustard; Blue cheese; coconut milk and curry; and tomato cream sauce, celery, bell peppe.
Wednesdays feature cuisine from the wood burning, brick-oven. Farm to Table to Flatbreads are artisan, hearth-baked flatbreads and pizzas with a market basket of local ingredients and toppings. Specialties include: Shrimp or chicken with pesto, red onion, mozzarella and sun-dried tomato cooked to crispy perfection. My favorite? The Mozzarella, pear, goat cheese, caramelized onion, honey, walnut and arugula.
There are six versions of flatbreads and pizzas with ingredients changing weekly.
Chef Laurent Godbout also highlights other menu items from the brick oven – roasted chicken with grilled lemon, meatballs and eggplant.
Guests willing to dine early can take advantage of early dinner specials featuring 50 percent savings on all entrees from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. and the restaurant is also offering a three-course summer prix fixe menu and includes a choice from four starters, four entrees and three desserts for $34 per person.
