The eating scene in West Palm Beach is going to expand with the debut of Eat-Scene, a combination gourmet market / restaurant area set to debut in December at the corner of Quadrille Boulevard and Fern Street. The brainchild of long-time Florida resident, Tony Solo, Eat-Scene is described as being loosely based on such similar venues as New York’s Eataly and Seattle’s Pike’s Market. There will be 20 or so different independently owned businesses under the Eat-Scene roof, from purveyors of produce, meat and seafood to gourmet spices, chocolates and baked good, along with four different “micro eateries,” a deli and an outdoor beer garden.The idea, according to Eat-Scene’s website, is to create a “market culture for wine and food enthusiasts” and a “social venue that appeals to all your senses.” Located at: 501 Fern St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401-Info; 561-275-1550 or www.eat-scene.com

Have you heard about the spectacular renovations in the works? The chic new look? The new decor and furniture? The new Chef?
No, this is not just a powdering of the nose—this is a full steam ahead Re-Do from carpet and paint to ceiling and walls. Emerald Hills Country Club was BIG in its heyday and now….it's NEW heyday is here. And they want you and everyone to know! Here's the deal: For the next 60 or so days (until all the final touches are completed), you can wheel and deal to use one of their 3 exquisite ballrooms for a wedding or a party, or their magnificent outdoor patio with center-covered area (perfect for a band), or their sultry "Garden Room" with glass walls that let you peer out to beautiful woods and greenery. (You can't beat the views of the rolling, lush green golf course just outside.) Try the outstanding new foods prepared by Chef Jean, graduate of esteemed Johnson & Wales College of Culinary Arts. Lunch during the week is only $11.95 for All-You-Can-Eat of 40 different items; Sunday Brunch ($18.95) and Friday's Seafood Buffet ($24.95) offer fine dining with a view! Although the menus change each week, the format stays.
