Summer menu at Palm Beach’s Chez l’Epicier begins May 15

As the South Florida weather heats up, so do the summer deals offered by one of my favorite Palm Beach restaurants – Chez l’Epicier.

From May 15 – October 31, diners receive supper specials, including all-you-eat P.E.I mussels and French fries on Thursdays. The mussels, as the pièce de résistance of summer, are prepared with five different sauces— white wine, shallot and garlic; Dijon mustard; bouillabaise; coconut milk and curry; and tomato arabiatta, plus the hand cut, house-made French fries. The price is $25 per person (no sharing) for unlimited flights of moules, frites, and flavors.

Friday evenings feature a “taste of tartares,’’ in which Chef Laurent Godbout has provides a light alternative for summer dining. The menu features chopped, chilled and seasoned beef, tuna, salmon, beet, avocado and tomato – each served with toppings. Appetizer portions and entrée dishes are available and pricing is $12 – $18 for starters and $24 – $36 for main courses.
