Is there anything better in this world than cheese?
Okay, maybe a couple of things. But you get my drift. But there are still plenty of reasons to check the new menu items at The Cheese Course (305 Plaza Real, 561/395-4354) in Mizner Park. There’s a trio of new salads—Greek with feta, roasted beet with goat cheese, smoked salmon with goat cheese—plus a roasted pepper and eggplant sammie and a DIY cheese platter. There will also be two complementary cheese tastings a month, as well as monthly classes, like the one Thursday, Oct. 18, that pairs cheese with craft beers. The class begins at 7 p.m. and costs $20; get details here.
Hip nouveau Asian eatery Kapow (431 Plaza Real, 561/347-7322) has some new goodies too, especially since just this week they opened for lunch seven days a week. Among the Mizner Park eatery's offerings are an Asian-esque burger with spicy kimchee, skirt steak ramen, and one of my favorite sammies in the world, the Vietnamese banh mi, here with pulled pork, siracha mayo and pickled daikon and carrot.
And at City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill (700 S. Rosemary Ave., 561/366-0071) in CityPlace, newly appointed top toque Michael Hinojosa has jazzed up the menu with some of his own creations. Among them: Wagyu flatbread with marsala sauce, pan-seared yellowtail with goat cheese risotto, and shrimp and spinach tagliarini. Go get some.
