New In Town
We’ve rounded up new dives and digs ready for you to try this summer.
Brand new in Boynton Beach is Baciami, Italian for “kiss me,” which is serving up authentic Neapolitan pizzas, pasta and more. It’s an authentic dining destination by father and son duo Steven Pellegrino Sr. and Steven Pellegrino Jr. of Prime and Il Bacio in Delray Beach. Enjoy happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., including the baked eggplant Parmesan and house-made Italian sausage and broccoli rabe paired with signature cocktails. The Italian Stallion, anyone?
