Boca Raton seems to be revered around the country as this beautiful paradise, with palm trees lining streets, and beautifully manicured lawns outside gorgeous homes and businesses. Most people would agree unless they have traveled on NW 2nd ave, also known as Boca Raton Blvd., between Glades Road and 20th Street. For some reason this block is full of decrepit plazas and buildings that never seem to get nicer. It is like the buildings were bought 50 years ago and just left in the state they were. G-d Forbid one of the landlords would get wise and redo the plazas so they could obtain more rent and beautify the street. (Pictured above at the grand opening and ribbon cutting are FAU Student Body President Michael Cepeda , Mayor Susan Haynie, Andrew Stellino (Owner), and Boca Raton Councilman Robert Weinroth.

Well one amazing thing happened on this street recently and it was the opening of a new casual eatery called Community Table. Although known for their $1 pizza slices and $8 pies, Community Table serves quite a bit more than that. They have tacos, hot dogs, paninis, salads and fresh homemade pasta. We couldn’t wait to go in and try out everything they had to offer.  (more…)

I travel around North America for a different job, and find myself in some really great and not so great locations.  Emailed to me one day was my next work trip to Odessa, TX. It was a spot on the Texas map until 3 years ago when Texas decided to start drilling for more oil in West Texas.  People out here with property have become instant millionaires within 6 months to a year.  Enough of that, but what it did bring was a demand for more restaurants.

One restaurant in-particular is the Cork & Pig Tavern.  It is a new establishment like most other building growing on the east side of Odessa, but with a really good exception … pizza.  Today I had the Gladiator pizza.  The Gladiator has Italian sausage, diced red bell peppers, oregano, mozzarella and tomato sauce.

I have some family that lives up in Indian River County. For a long time, he kept telling me about the delicious garlic knots located at a place called Giuseppe’s Pizza in Fellsmere, Florida. We passed by a few times but they weren’t open on the days we went. For those of you who are wondering where Fellsmere, FL even is, it is just to the west of 95, North of Vero Beach, and West of Sebastian. There really isn’t much going on in this town, in my opinion, so it is likely you never will have to visit there.

Giuseppe’s Pizza was open the other day as we passed it, and we went inside to get a few pies to feed the family and I had high hopes since I was told by others in Sebastian that this is some of the best pizza in the area.  After ordering the pies, we snacked on an appetizer of Garlic Bread with cheese, which wasn’t that good in my opinion, so I started to lose faith in the place.

While growing up in Plainview/Syosset, my go to place was located near my house. It went through several name changes over the years. Luigi’s, Sal’s, Tony D’s and probably a couple of others I cannot recall. Each one was great and Tony D’s had extraordinary Garlic Knots. Rumor has it Tony might have relocated to Florida and opened a place, but I have yet to find him.

My son went up to a wrestling school in Syosset and during his break I drove by the old neighborhood and noticed that the shopping center had changed and there was a new pizzeria located there. We pulled in immediately so I could try it out.
