When Rouge opened in November 2011, the owner didn't hold back the spirit of sensory overload that defines his latest creation. As guests filed into the grand-opening bash, a white tiger prowled in its pen, a multicultural ensemble of percussionists set pulses racing, and aerialists and fire-dancers sashayed and spun, resembling licks of flame themselves in crimson outfits chosen to match the interior. Amid the circus atmosphere, Leslie Gray of the Palm Beach Post also found space to happily notice the "canneloni, Brie and other delights, including the view."
On any average evening, diners might not find feline predators stalking the entrance, but they may well take in burlesque shows, performance art, and jazz trios as they spear thoughtfully accented bites of fish, steak, and creamy desserts from around the world. Seafood offerings range from appetizers of smoked scallops and tuna tartar to entrees of seafood pot pie and Scottish salmon. The restaurant's designers cultivate elegance but not formality, resulting in the kind of aesthetic that leaves the ductwork exposed but covered in white paint and hung with rococo candelabras. Crystals wink from padded walls, echoing the glint of cocktails being shaken at the bar. Outdoors, a waterfront patio finds patrons feasting on romantic dinners, toasting during champagne brunches, and napping between the two.
Sports Grill has perfected the recipes for its seven signature chicken wings over the course of a quarter century. Such culinary expertise fills the menu, from barbecued baby back ribs to philly Sports steak sandwiches with peppers and cheese. There's even seafood including a blackened fish fillet sandwich. The staff also serves beer and wine in front of major sporting events, which Sports Grill broadcasts across 17 flat-screen TVs.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Trattoria Il Migliore is a neighborhood bistro tucked in a tiny strip mall, where traditional Italian fare is given a modern twist. The urban décor is felt immediately, thanks to exposed brick walls and pulsing rock music, though old black and white movies are always playing along one wall. The menu is equally esoteric, with highlights that include homemade Kobe meatballs, reimagined fettuccine, tagliatelle and gnocchi. Tableside bread service is familiar and satisfying, while the dessert tiramisu is the perfect ender to the evening. With large portions, it may be best to share a dish or two, but no matter what, guests should opt for the Tuscan fries – cut in-house, fried with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and then tossed with a pinch of Parmesan cheese and crunchy herbs.
The chefs at Mister Collins hand-make everything on the menu, meaning the beef in the cheeseburgers is ground fresh in the kitchen each day and the salad dressings are all whisked together with tender loving care, not poured from a barrel marked "Eat Me." Ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible, so the menu changes with each season. The salads, sandwiches, and entrees draw equally from land and sea, with dishes such as the crispy oyster cobb, daily fish sandwich, and filet mignon with crispy Japanese eggplant and truffle hollandaise. A drink list of more than 60 wines, craft beers, and creative cocktails complements the dishes and views of the Atlantic, which come free with every meal.
