Rocco"s Tacos and Tequila Bar serves the best authentic, fresh, and reasonably priced Mexican food featuring the simple recipes of everyday Mexican life. The corn tortillas are made by hand and cooked fresh on the comal just as they are made in kitchens throughout Mexico. Enjoy fresh guacamole prepared tableside. Order a Margarita mixed with housemade sour mix. Sample one of the 220 different Tequila's Rocco's keeps on hand (The Largest Selection in Florida). The bar is always busy and the crowd's energy level reaches a crescendo when "Rocco" himself does his now famous "TEQUILA DANCE" on top of the bar. Rocco's Tacos offers outdoor sidewalk dining in the center of the action on PGA Blvd. Come join the fun at Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar!!

"Although Rocco's is a local chain, a first time guest would never know it. The menu is unique, the choices varied and inclusive, and the atmosphere fresh. The hook here is the guacamole bar, brought tableside, to be made freshly for you with your customized choice of flavors. Our salad portions were huge and either could be shared or brought home for a subsequent meal. And the eponymous tacos are full, flavorful and well presented and worth a try even as just a side."

"I like the Met Bar and have been a few times now. Traveling south from Boston, its location in Legacy place was a great stopping off point to grab a bite to eat on our way home. The restaurant was noisy and more crowded at night than my usualy lunch time visits, but not so much it was annoying. I had a great local beer and a very tasty burger. My wife had a salad with chicken and we started with guacamole and chips. When the bill came I was stunned to see how much it cost. While I will likely come back at some point, to may over $30 per person for what we ordered didn't seem like the value I was expecting."

Benvenuti a Spiga Ristorante, where you will enjoy traditional regional Italian cuisine. By day, Spiga is a casual trattoria, serving simple fare like wood-oven pizza, savory risotto, and hand-crafted panini. By night, copper silk drapes, white linens and shimmering sconces bathe Spiga in a romantic glow. Dine indoors or out, on our sunny, landscaped patio. As in the Italian countryside, ingredients are all produced in house, from the crusty breads and infused oils and vinegars to the handcut pasta. This is big city dining in a comfortable suburban setting.

"Set just off the main drag behind some small retail buildings on the Needham / Newton line, Spiga was a terrific place to meet a colleague for a tasty lunch. The menu had a little something for everyone and the service was kind and consistent. I had a spicy lamb and rabe panini and my friend a chicken, mozzarella and tomato one, both were great."

Carlo Carlozzi, the popular bartender at Ten Prime Steak and Sushi for the past decade, opened Circe, his first restaurant. The menu consists of American-infused, Mediterranean dishes and drinks that are "exotic and special."

"It's great to see Circe attract a great and diverse crowd to its stunning restaurant. The chef has crafted an impressive menu, augmented by interesting specials, that will appeal to almost any pallet. The service was superb and conscientious. Our meals were tasty, well plated, and served properly, although two guests felt theirs was salty. Overall, a wonderful, hip destination for a fun, special or romantic night out."

"Since Ned Grace created it, Hemenway's has (with only a short time where it fell off the rails a bit) always been a Rhode Island culinary landmark. One of the first daily fresh fish restaurants in the region, the menus hasn't strayed too far from its roots. The new menus brings forward a little more chef-i-ness to the preparation of its signature seafood selections, but the server will tell you each time, you can have it as plain or fancy as you like. We enjoyed rare tuna and salmon prepared a few different ways. The meals were dead on and nothing was left for the doggie bag. Our server was a pro, with our neighbors extolling their seats, "We get Annie to wait us from this table!""
