After a fabulous weekend in Florida, I could not finish it off without blogging about our favourite place in town. Cucina Dell Arte, the place-to-be in Palm Beach is not only a fabulously delicious Italian restaurant but it is the bar to be at after-hours. "Cucinas" to the locals and anyone who has spent time on the island is a laid-back, friendly, well-run restaurant. Not only is the food terrific, but the owner Nick is what makes your night! He is the friendliest restaurateur whose professionalism and love for the industry shines through not only at Cucinas but at his other two places in town. Always wanting to make your visit to his restaurants the best, he never fails to disapoint. Cucinas is just such a fun spot, with a neat Mediterranean type decor, and hanging chandeliers. It is a spot intended for everyone - families, date nights, parties, New Years, you name it! Perfect for the early family crowd, Cucinas is able to then transform into the hottest spot in town at night. You do not want to miss the ball drop here at New Years!

So menu highlights that are not to be missed:
Mushroom Raviloi with Spiny Lobster in a Cognac Cream Sauce (seriously to die for, with a little truffle essence, yum!)
Roasted Beet Salad with pistachios, avocado and a simple vinaigrette
Beef Carpaccio with arugula, parmesan, artichokes in a lemony vinaigrette
Short Ribs in a red wine sauce
Bisteca Maria Rossa: a delicious Bush Brother's steak, grilled to perfection with a salted herb crust. A honest to god must try at this place, it will just melt in your mouth!

We just love this spot and hope you will too!
