Mike Montella was not always called Mr. Fish. Though he spent years serving as an advisor to the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council and as a charter-boat captain, the moniker crept up on him slowly as he dreamt of opening his own gourmet seafood shop to fill a void in the local market.
Now in business for more than 25 years, Montella's Mr. Fish brand continues to purvey the freshest seafood, including native stone crabs, lobster, and salmon. Recently joined by trained chef Mrs. Fish, the company has also started to supply a line of prepared foods, sauces, and condiments to complement the oceanic proteins. Additionally, the Fish in a Flash delivery division packs and ships orders to the doors of families and restaurants overnight.
Dissick Medical Associates' skilled physician works to erase spider veins during sclerotherapy treatments that use hypertonic saline solution and cause minimal pain. After chatting with clients about which pair of veins to treat, the licensed pro injects blood highways with a specialized hypertonic saline that attacks the disfiguring cells and tacky wallpaper lining the inside of unwanted vessels. Debris and platelets create clots, fostering the body’s ability to paint over unsightly spider lines with fresh, new tissue. Each 30-minute session can typically treat uncomplicated spider veins less than one millimeter in diameter, and two to six treatments are recommended for best results. Dissick's all-women staff undergoes extensive training in medical assisting and technology to ensure treatments go smoother than a jazz musician's trip down a water slide.
Just as its name implies, Boca farmers market & grill combines the convenience of grilled food to go and a fully stocked market of fresh produce and veggies.

Colorful slopes of cucumbers, avocados, and mangoes line the market's bins, and an ever-changing seasonal spread of tubers, berries, onions, and melons makes for healthy snacks and ammo for throwing at terrible comedians throughout the year.

At each of Advanced Vision Care's five locations, a team of optometric physicians examines peepers of all age brackets for signs of aberration or disease. They then furnish patients with prescriptions that can be formed into contact lenses or slung into stylish frames from the likes of Prada, Lacoste, and BCBG. The staff also performs Lasik consultations, in which they determine candidacy, recommend a Lasik doctor, and provide a series of post-op checks. Most locations house a multilingual team, who can answer questions or reflect on metaphysical quandaries in English, Spanish, or Hebrew.
