  • I can heartily recommend the services of our own Ruth Malave of CT Court! Ruth has a business in Boca Raton but since she's a resident she will meet you here and bring your alterations to work and back for you. In her business she also does complicated work like custom draperies but I can tell you she also does a great job on hemming pants, skirts, etc. Ruth can be reached at Franklin Interiors, Inc. at 561-750-8560.

  • I want to recommend Park Avenue Touch - Flowers and More, 1911 South Federal Hwy, Suite 300 in the Tropic Square Mall - 561-278-0803. Manager is Juan Carlos Fernandez.

    I was supposed to arrive here on Monday night following a long trip. Some friends sent me a beautiful arrangement in memory of my father who passed away in 2007. However I was delayed 3 days due to a car accident and instead of arriving Monday I didn't arrive til late Wed. Meanwhile I found a lovely arrangement placed in front of my door, along with a delivery notice to call the florist for delivery. When I questioned why it was delivered despite my not being home and not calling back, the manager said it was expressly the wishes of the sender that the flowers be there for my arrival. So, in reality, he was doing what was asked... but I'd only get to enjoy the flowers for half their life... so the manager offered to deliver another bouquet. I thought that was the right, and professional thing to do and I appreciated it so I let him do it. I also told him he has my business and I'd tell my neighbors about his good product and good business practices. So here I am! Look forward to seeing you around. Ava

  • We have a friend who does home renovations. His name is Dennis Crompton and he lives in Boca Raton. He has done 2 projects for us here in our Coral Trace home and he does great work for a very reasonable price. He is honest, and he doesn't mark up the materials - you pay for them at cost, and just pay him by the hour. The first project was tiling the floor in our porch. It looks great and everything matches. Most recent project was painting our hallway and dining area, and installing a chair rail around the room. If you call tell him Ava and Howard sent you!

  • Dinner - Mama Mia - on Woolbright off of Military - absolutely delicious garlic rolls
  • Way Beyond Bagels - Jog Road south of Linton - delicious lunch
  • Luna Rosa - Atlantic and A1A - fabulous breakfast. You must try the pancakes with Macademia nuts, coconut and pineapple syrup or for lunch try their delicious chicken salad with walnuts and grapes.
  • Sweet Tomatoes - Powerline and Palmetto Park Road - the longest salad bar I have ever seen. Plus they give you soups, pastas and different breads to choose from. Plus they have an ice cream bar that has caramel and hot fudge and all kinds of fixins. Plus it is quite inexpensive.

  • For a nice and romantic Italian dinner there is a small, quaint place in Boca Raton on Federal Hwy called, "Josephines." Yes there is a bar when you go in but the restaurant is away from that and is a very elegant place to dine. Often on Sunday evening there is a full dinner special which includes everything. We enjoy their chicken marsala as an entree. The pricing is moderate and attire should be appropriate for an elegant dinner out. No suits needed but something other than shorts and no jeans.
  • For a nice Chinese food meal we like the place in the same plaza with Poppies. I am having a blur on the name though. Very good food but it is a little on the expensive side for Chinese food.
  • City Oyster is another place in downtown Delray that we like. We really enjoyed lunch there a couple of months ago. We hear their dinners are wonderful.
  • The best of the best would be at The Tramonti also in downtown Delray. Wow!! What a lunch we had there to celebrate our anniversary! The food is awesome and much more to the authentic side of Italian cuisine. It is expensive there and dinner is super expensive. The outdoor tables are also close to one another so if you have some loud talkers next to you it can be rather bothersome. We loved it though.
