Please party-goers with a small platter of sandwiches for six to eight, garnished with imported olives and served on a reusable tray ($54.95). Start some heart-healthy hullabaloo with a fresh fruit bowl and a crunchy crudité tray (both cost $49.95 and serve 10–12), or satisfy fortunate mouths with the company's titular cheese course—a cultured collection of three cheeses, a freshly baked baguette, and fresh fruit ($39.95). Regardless of which grainy goods and pasteurized pleasures you desire, The Cheese Course will have them prepped, arranged, and ready for noshing within 24 hours' time.
Established in 1979, South Florida Kosher Meats, Inc., houses a considerable collection of kosher komestibles. Until April 6, the grocer is kosher for Passover and can provide you with all your Passover needs. Following Passover, the market will return to its regular offers. South Florida Kosher Meats specializes in kosher meats, such as 1.5 pounds of barbecue ribs (about $15.99) and 2 pounds of chicken wings (about $3.99), both of which will liven up the next High Holy Days pool party. For customers looking to make use of the rocket-powered shopping cart they received for their last birthday, the market also functions as a full grocery store, with items ranging from cookies ($0.89+) and couscous ($2.39+) to pizzas ($3.99+) and pie filling ($1.39+). Torah-toting turophiles may opt instead for kosher dairy products—including several cheeses from Israel—complemented with a selection from South Florida Kosher Meats, Inc.'s collection of more than 150 kosher wines, including wines from the grape mines of Israel, Italy, France, and Australia.
Jacob's Classic Market stocks a wide range of gourmet groceries along with made-from-scratch meals featuring organic and glatt kosher ingredients. Families can feast for the Jewish New Year with a 10-person meal specially designed for Rosh Hashanah. Handfuls of challah and matzo balls soak up lingering droplets of chicken soup before the main course of brisket in champignon wine sauce and citrus-marinated chicken parades across plate with a retinue of string beans, sweet noodle kugel, and a high-school marching band.
The aromas of spice-rubbed meats, curries, and simmering coconut milk mingle in Ginger Bay Cafe's dining room, giving visitors a taste of the tropics as soon as they enter. These vibrantly complex scents only grow stronger when orders arrive, such as plates of curried-chicken spring rolls with pineapple-ginger chutney, creole lobster, or jerk chicken with a secret blend of spices.
Inside the dining room, mottled orange and yellow walls evoke the look of an ocean sunset or really cool geometry book. The restaurant comes alive at night as live jazz bands and dance parties with reggae, R&B, and Caribbean soca rhythms echo throughout the space.
At Bal Harbour Smiles, Dr. Ari Benmergui and his knowledgeable staff keep vigil over grins with preventive and cosmetic dental and periodontal services. Full-mouth digital x-rays glimpse deeper into jawlines than routine exams and cleanings can to pinpoint deep-rooted cavities or baby teeth that refuse to come out and play. Friendly employees steer patrons toward the most appropriate treatment for their personal woes, whether it be teeth whitening or CEREC crowns and fillings, which blend seamlessly into ivory surroundings, much like a cloud at a marshmallow factory.
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.
