If Sunday brunch in the most gorgeous outdoor dining area this side of the Pearly Gates sounds good to you, it will sound even better when you know that Delray’s tres charming Sundy House (106 S. Swinton Ave., 561/272-5678) has amped up its menu. Joining such brunchable faves as eggs Benedict, made-to-order omelets and smoked salmon are a raw bar featuring such seagoing offerings as king crab claws, oysters and caviar, plus a carving station with prime rib, pork, ham and turkey, and a host of new drink specials. Sunday brunch runs from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; cost is $58 per person.
It worked so well in March, why not try it in April? That’s the feeling of Tony Bova and the folks at Boca’s Vivo Partenza (1450 N. Federal Hwy., 561/750-2120), where this month’s $35 prix fixe, three-course dinner menu (available Sunday through Thursday) has been extended until the end of April (and it even includes Easter Sunday). The menu isn’t set in stone, but among the possibilities are apps of eggplant pancakes and calamari done one of three ways, entrees of forever braised short ribs and wild salmon with Mediterranean salad, and desserts of ricotta cheesecake and crème brulee.
And it’s a new and improved happy hour at Uncle Julio’s (449 Plaza Real, 561/300-3530). From 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday the Mizner Park Mexican will offer $3 domestic and imported brewskis, $4 house wines, $5 margaritas and $7 premium cocktails and wines. On the food side of things, $3 queso or guacamole, $5 half-orders of nachos, $6 quesadillas and $7 ceviches, which should be enough to improve your mood.
