What’s For Lunch…’Your Greek Cousin’!

Let me explain!

I was driving around today, in a bit of a rush and found myself turning into the plaza at Palm Beach Lakes Blvd, and headed for the safety of Chick-Fil-A.  Luckily for me, something caught my attention from the corner of my eye.

A Greek restaurant called “Your Greek Cousin”.  Always in the mood for a real gyro I figured I’d give it a shot.  The place was busy, but most people were already enjoying their meals.  I walked up to the counter ordered a gyro and bottle water and paid about 8 bucks.

This is what they brought to my table!
























Seconds later it looked like this:


Needless to say, it did not take long before this scrumptious creation was fully devoured! The few moments I looked up from my plate, I noticed everyone else enjoying their meals as well, with a nice mix of patrons in the clean and bright environment.

Very happy to find a genuine Greek restaurant close by, and can’t wait to go back and try some of their other dishes.  Your Greek Cousin is located at  2060 Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard West Palm Beach, FL (561) 686-9126.  They are open from 8am-8pm or visit their website at:  http://www.yourgreekcousin.com/ and tell them New to Palm Beach sent ya!  Also, be sure to ‘Like” their Facebook page for all current specials.


Hurricane Alley Raw Bar and Restaurant in Boynton Beach

I am very embarrassed to admit that after living in Boynton Beach for 8 years, I finally made it over to Hurricane Alley Raw Bar and Restaurant on the corner of Ocean and Dixie.

I’m not sure what took us so long, but every time we made our way over to the beach, and stopped at that traffic light, you couldn’t help but notice the tables outside the restaurant packed with patrons at just about any time of the day.

The first thing I did was go to www.LocalDines.com and purchased a $20 certificate for $10 bucks.  It’s a great place to save on dining, especially when trying out a restaurant for the first time.

We parked across the street, and were able to get a table outside.  The weather wasn’t great, but with the plastic wind guards down, we were sure to keep dry and comfortable.  Our server quickly greeted us, brought us our drinks and we ordered Oysters Rockefeller.  I’m told this place is known for it’s raw bar, but it’s just not in season and we don’t want to take any chances.

These babies came overflowing with creamy spinach and fresh parmessean cheese all over them.  It was a warm and well blended taste that definitely woke up the appetite!

For entrees my wife ordered a Shrimp and Scallop special and I ordered the seared Tuna Ceaser Salad.  Both plates had a good portion, and my salad was huge!  The Tuna was fresh and perfectly cooked, and my wife’s shrimp and scallops were tender, juicy and also cooked just right.

With our $20 certificate, the whole meal came in under $50 and I thought well worth it.  I’d like to come back again when the raw bar is in season and chow down on that!  Overall it’s an eclectic type of neighborhood bar meets pretty awesome cooking with a very relaxed and laid back atmosphere, one we hope to frequent again soon.
