The menu at Scruby's BBQ is authentic Southern through and through, but the ribs have an unexpected source: Denmark. The country's pork is widely held to be some of the highest quality in the world, and Scruby's pitmasters find that it's their best bet for optimal age, weight, and meat content. The chosen ribs make their way to an open brick pit along with dry-rubbed chicken, brisket, turkey, beef, and, of course, more pork, where they slowly drink in the smoke of black jack oak.

Once they're fall-off-the-bone tender, the ribs are slathered with home-made sauce?deemed good enough to "eat it on crackers" in a 2011 SunSentinel review?and char-grilled until they acquire a sweet, caramelized crust. Then it's time to slap them on a plate and surround them with any of a dozen sides, all made from scratch or nostalgic helpings of macaroni and cheese. Desserts are made in-house, too, including peanut-butter pie and fruit-filled banana-split cake.

On a trip to Georgia after giving birth to her third child, Desiree Polazzo had her first taste of a bite-sized orb of cake that—despite her strict dieting to get back into pre-baby shape—had her hooked. Awed by the decadent treat, Desiree returned home to Florida and headed straight for her kitchen to experiment with a recipe of her own. She finally architected a dulcet, velvety cake pop that recaptured the excitement of that first Georgia pop, she opened Cake Pop-It to share her discovery with the community’s sweet teeth.

In the years since, Desiree has let her creativity take the reigns of her confection-crafting process, decorating each pop with a whimsical design or turning it into an edible character replete with a smiling face and a mysterious past. Cake Pop-It’s staff of bakers also forges other sugary nibbles including custom cakes and cupcakes with inventive flavors such as salted caramel, key-lime pie, and crumb cake.

Surrounded by the mellow confines of the dining room, the aromatic, slow-cooked food at Jamaica House shines. The menu is home to a collection of authentic Caribbean dishes, such as jerk pork, curried goat, and sweet plantains, as well as breakfast items such as saltfish, callaloo, and just-right Goldilocks porridge. A mini bar and pool table keep visitors occupied when they're not busy eating.

Without the use of animal products, the chefs at Gourmet Greenhouse raid Mother Nature's pantry to pile plates with healthy salads, savory sandwiches, drinks, and desserts. After discovering meat-free diets can lower the risk of disease and provide unconditional moral support to canine teeth, the founders inked a menu full of vegetarian, vegan, and raw delights. Creamy soups contain almond or rice milk instead of lacto-liquids ($4–$5), and almond-flaxseed meatballs wait to hatch in a squiggly nest of raw yellow spaghetti squash ($8).

In 1954, Gino's Italian Market's founder, Anthony Paparella, moved from the teeming fisheries of Bari to Hoboken, New Jersey, where he married a fellow Italian and worked as a builder for nearly 20 years. After retiring to South Florida in '73, Paparella brought a taste of his homeland stateside by opening a bustling bazaar filled with fresh produce, succulent meats, and sweet desserts.

The market's commitment to tradition and family can be found in all of its business practices, from its catered feasts of traditional baked pastas and rib roasts, to e-mail correspondences from the resident Nonna that contain expert advice on party planning, recipes, and optimal angles for cheek-pinching. Shoppers consult Nonna Anna and handy recipe guides to concoct rich sauces and tasty entrees from the store's bountiful selection of cheese, wine, ripe tomatoes, and imported Italian goods.

In addition to rounding out dinner plates with house-made prosciutto bread, fresh chicken, and juicy cuts of beef, Gino's graces weddings, desserts, and banquets with custom cakes and pastries.

Drawing inspiration from South American cuisine, the cooks at Che Pibe Grill roast hearty meats such as new york strip steaks, short ribs, and pork kebabs over an open flame. The Sun Sentinel also praised their "light and flaky" empanadas for "devilishly generous portions of shredded chicken or ground beef" in a 2007 review. But the chefs have even more tricks up their sleeves—they incorporate Italian influences into dishes such as marinara-sauced pastas and homemade tiramisu.

In the casual dining room, waiters pass these and other menu items onto tables illuminated by cylindrical pendant lamps. Opposite the seating, a countertop dominates the space with its polished granite surface and constant demands that staffers shine its mosaic tiles.
