***** Nick’s Pizza, 137 Northeast 2nd Avenue, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33441, (954) 698-0333.

Got a real good mom & pop red sauce Italian joint for you guys, Nick’s Pizza in Deerfield Beach.

Now you guys and Jeff Eats both know that mom & pop red sauce Italian joints are literally a dime a dozen down here in sunny Florida- and for that matter- everywhere else in the good old USA! We also know, that some are good, some are real good, some are fair and some are straight-out lousy…well Nick’s Pizza is one of the real good ones!

Long story short, yesterday Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats did lunch at Nick’s and other than for a small dose of “family related drama” the 2 pizza slices/2 salads/1 cheese calzone/1 chicken parm sub/1 veal parm sub- meal went off without a hitch!

If you’re into mom & pop red sauce Italian joints- Jeff Eats can’t see you guys-not liking Nick’s Pizza which is open Monday-Friday 11am-10pm, Saturday-Sunday noon-10pm.

The Fresh Market-Cold Brew Cookie Dough Ice Cream (The Fresh Market- Boca Raton)

Posted on June 10th, 2020 · American Boca Raton Desserts Fast Food · 2 Comments »

***** The Fresh Market-Cold Brew Cookie Dough Ice Cream.

Now, you guys and Jeff Eats both know that this whole food blog “reviewing” situation is purely one big subjective call- you know, what I like, you may hate and vice versa!

With that in mind, last night while shopping at The Fresh Market located 5540 North Military Trail, Boca Raton, Florida 33496, (561) 994-2221) I came across The Fresh Market’s in-house brand- Cold Brew Cookie Dough Ice Cream (1.5 quart-$4.99)…

Long story short, this coffee ice cream loaded with frozen chocolate cookie dough bits was absolutely dynamite. This ice cream was so delicious (and I’m not really all that proud about this)- that in one 20 minute sitting I ate something like 1/2 of the container.

Like I said a few seconds ago, what I like you may hate and vice versa. All I know is that in my day I’ve eaten tons of ice cream- and I’m telling you guys that this- The Fresh Market-Cold Brew Cookie Dough Ice Cream is right up there with some of the best ice cream I’ve ever eaten!

***** Anthony’s Runway 84, 330 West State Road 84, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33315, (954) 467-8484.

Last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and 9 others ate dinner at Anthony’s Runway 84 an “upscale” Italian joint in Fort Lauderdale.

Jeff Eats first told you guys about Anthony’s Runway 84 on July 9, 2008 (“review”reprinted down below).

Long story short,

Despite getting caught in torrential rains-driving there and being late for our 6:30pm reservation (arriving at 7:10pm) the packed (and I do mean packed)- Anthony’s Runway 84- immediately seated us! Real simple tale to tell, the food (Italian salad, mussels marinara, clams oreganata, chicken parmigiana, veal parmigiana, veal marsala, grilled pork chops, chicken scarpariello, spaghetti marinara) was delicious and the service was right on the money! Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you, that everyone at the table really enjoyed dinner! For you guys who like to keep score, the grilled pork chops and the chicken scarpariello killed!

Take a “read” of my 7/9/08 “review”- just so you know, Jeff Eats hadn’t been back to Anthony’s Runway 84 since that review-date…I’m kinda thinking that “out of sight out of mind” was the prime factor for the roughly 8 year hiatus!

Based on last night’s “dinner” Jeff Eats is recommending that you guys give the joint a shot- no ifs, ands or buts- Anthony’s Runway 84 did a great job last night!

You can check menu/prices/info at runway-84.com.

Anthony’s Runway 84 is open for lunch Tuesday-Friday, for dinner Tuesady-Sunday, closed Monday.

***** Anthony’s Runway 84, 330 West State Road 84, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33315, (954) 467-8484.

The owner of Anthony’s Runway 84, is the same guy who in recent years has been “rolling out” Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza joints literally all over South Florida.

Anthony’s Runway 84 is a white-cloth-upscale Italian Restaurant…This joint’s decor is Tony Soprano-Christopher Moltisanti-Paulie Gualtieri circa 1970. Anthony’s has an enormous-legendary following, so don’t even think about going to this joint without a reservation…(more on reservations later).

Just so you know…over the years I have eaten at Anthony’s Runway 84 at least 15 times…to be perfectly honest with you, I don’t know if I like or don’t like this joint…I know that sounds nuts, but that’s the truth.

Anthony’s is notorious for not honoring reservations…over the years it has gotten a reputation for being a joint that hand-picks who gets seated and when they get seated…in the past, sometimes I was timely seated and sometimes I sat in the bar (for the longest period) trying to figure what the hell was going on…

Anthony’s is notorious for having an erratic kitchen…sometimes the food is absolutely incredible and sometimes it produces absolute garbage…in the past, I have had great dishes, good dishes and garbage.

The one thing that has always been consistent at Anthony’s is the wait-service. Absolutely top-notch. By the way, Anthony’s prices are nothing too terrible…you get a ton of food for the money.

The perfect Anthony’s Runway 84 experience is an “honored” reservation with great food…I have had such evenings… then again, I have had “honored” reservations with garbage…I have also had reservations “not honored” with great food…and reservations “not honored” with garbage.

Let me put it to you this way…eating at this joint is an absolute crap-shoot. Based on my having eaten in this joint something like 15 times, I must be a gambler and glutton for punishment all rolled up in one.

My suggestion is that you give Anthony’s Runway 84 at least one try…if the stars line-up for you, you will have an an absolutely fabulous dinner. When (if) it comes together, the combination of decor/ambiance/attitude/food/service is fantastic.

Anthony’s is open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner.

GOOD LUCK!!!!

***** Gramma’s Bakery, 1446 South Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33445, (561) 496-0185.

This tale gets filed under- some-things bear repeating…first told you guys about Gramma’s bakery on 12/1/15…

Gramma’s Bakery is as close as you’re gonna get to the terrific neighborhood bakeries that dotted Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, (The) Bronx and Staten Island in the 1940s-1950s-1960s.

This always busy hole in the wall- (which is owned by The Boys Farmers Market, 14378 South Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484, (561) 496-8123) makes off the chart- reasonably priced delicious- cakes, breads, pies, pastries, rolls and cookies!

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, Gramma’s stuff will put the kibosh on any diet you’re on or planning to go on!

Open 7 days a week 9am-5pm.

Gramma’s Bakery is an an absolute must try!

***** Gramma’s Bakery, 14466 S Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484, (561) 496-0185.

Got an absolutely terrific bakery for you guys, Gramma’s Bakery in Delray Beach.

Gramma’s is owned/operated by The Boys Farmers Market- which is one of Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats favorite “markets” to shop in…Jeff Eats got a whole bunch of Boys’ “reviews” if you’re interested!

Gramma’s is a hole-in-the-wall retail joint. The “baking area” is in the back of the store. Jeff Eats is thinking (actually knows) that many of the items carried in The Boys’ bakery- is baked at Gramma’s which is a 2 minute walk from The Boys and vice versa (that’s how it usually works!).

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that Gramma’s baked goods are absolute dynamite- and super-reasonably prices. The joint’s selection covers the full gamut…cakes, cookies, pastries, breads, so on and so forth…The odds are, that you will find what you came for and leave with “it” and other stuff- that you didn’t come for!-happens to Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats each and every time!

Gramma’s Bakery is definitely one of the best bakeries in South Florida.

Gramma’s is open 7 days a week 9am-5pm.

One final thought, for you Brooklyn guys out there who might be “missing” Ebinger’s Bakery…for sure it’s not the real deal- but trust Jeff Eats, Gramma’s chocolate cake will- get you through the day quite nicely!

You may know Ryan Niemiller as the disarmingly handsome comedian and 3rd place finalist from America’s Got Talent Season 14. Despite being born with a disability in both arms, Ryan, the self-proclaimed “Cripple Threat of Comedy”, shares his views of the world from the perspective of the handicapped (and very handsome). Ryan began his comedy career in Los Angeles, California, and hasn’t looked back since. He’s a favorite performer in clubs and colleges across the country. His comedy covers topics such as dating, trying to find employment and attempting to find acceptance in a world not designed for him. With his quick wit, good looks, great timing, and a gimmick that only he can exploit, Ryan hopes to prove to the comedy world that he may be unarmed, but he is dangerous. And and handsome – in case you missed it the first three times.
