Piñon Grill (Boca Raton, FL)

Highly recommended it came, so we gave it a try and my “O-Piñon” on Piñon Grill is also a positive one. A beautiful façade matched with a luxurious interior, allow this classy, Southwest inspired restaurant to fit in with the neighboring, prestigious Boca Town Center Mall.  The exterior of the building displays a naturally sophisticated look, which continues as you enter through the oversized double doors.

Tundra Las Olas (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

What’s the coolest hot spot in all of Fort Lauderdale?  Tundra, of course.  The arctic themed scenery defines this new Las Olas locale as the cool place to be (literally), but you can leave your parka at home- while there are ice carvings displayed throughout the dining areas, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.  Its cozy interior (aka limited seating) portrays an earthy, modernized lodge housing a series of oversized, icicle-shaped chandeliers that are the focal point of the room.  A full bar (complete with a specialty drink menu) invites those who want to enjoy a cocktail, and perhaps a bite to make themselves comfortable.  The covered patio out front accommodates many more guests and is tastefully adorned with black chandeliers, chic lighting, and ice sculptures.

Sundy House (Delray Beach, FL)

Trendy décor, upbeat music, and fusion fare is what the Downtown Delray eateries are known for- and is everything that Sundy House is not. Just a couple of blocks away from “the scene,” lies a completely different kind of scene- a large, Victorian style house surrounded by lush landscapes. The tropical gardens, the freshwater ponds, and the tranquil ambiance create a romantic setting that will make any heart melt. Quiet tables for two sprinkled along the outdoor pathway are perfect for wooing your first date or the one you are celebrating years of togetherness with. But don’t think it’s a place just for couples. For our last dining experience, we had the magic number, eight, scoring us the most magnificent outdoor table, underneath a private gazebo (which my friends thought I set up- so I may have taken a little credit for it). There is no limit to how many you can dine with at Sundy House. As a matter of fact, it is a popular place for people to host their special occasions, from milestone birthdays to full out weddings. The property is ideal no matter what time of year you are planning your event because the indoor dining areas are (almost) as nice as the outdoor grounds, including the Warhol room, which doubles as an art gallery.
