New Happy Hour at Costa PB; Dine With Mucho Gusto Again!

Costa Palm Beach starts new happy hour specials

Costa Sandia Martini

The new, clean and modern Mediterranean restaurant on The Island, Costa Palm Beach, just started a happy hour with cocktails that sound intriguing. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, there is half-off cocktails, beer and wine at the bar only. Some of the specialty cocktails include the Sandia Martini (pictured), with Stoli vodka, lime juice, yellow bell pepper and watermelon. Or there’s the Aqua Giardino, with Fords gin, romaine lettuce, celery and lime topped off with chickpea water. Told you they sounded intriguing. Save me a bar seat.

150 Worth Ave., Palm Beach; 561/429-8456; complimentary valet parking at the Esplanade parking garage.
