***** Outback Steakhouse, 6030 Southwest 18th Street, Boca Raton, Florida 33433, (561) 338-6283.

Earlier today, I did a “writeup” on Olive Garden which is an Italian-chain with locations all over the United States. If you read my thoughts on Olive Garden, you know that I rated it “pretty good.” Anyway, I “got to thinking” about other chains that dot our South Florida area and decided to tell you about Outback Steak. If you don’t know about this chain (in a nutshell), it is a mid-price steakhouse which has the full “gamut” of other stuff like seafood and pastas. I am sure that sometime during the past 10 years-or-so, you have heard or seen an Outback commercial which has annoying actors with “heavy duty” Australian accents chatting-up the food. Nothing for nothing, but everytime I hear an Outback commercial I think of that (now late) crocodile guy who was always annoying the crap out of some animal on tv.

Anyway, over the years I have eaten in at Outback Steak more than 10 times. If you check, I am sure that you will find an Outback “somewhere” close to your home. Just so you know, those 10 “dinners” were split between the Outbacks in Boca Raton, Coral Springs and Delray Beach.

Outback’s food is not bad. Actually, for the price the steaks, seafood, appetizers, salads etc., are a very good value. The only problem that I have with this joint and IT IS A VERY BIG PROBLEM, is that literally every item on the menu is over-seasoned with SALT. When I eat at this joint, I make it my business, to tell the wait-staff to MAKE SURE THAT MY FOOD IS NOT OVER-SALTED.

If you like SALT…Outback is for you. If you don’t like SALT and are not inclined to tell the wait-staff your “preference”…Outback is not for you.

***** Tuscany Caffe & Restaurant, 6 Northwest 1st Avenue, Dania Beach, Florida 33004, (954) 921-1953.

Real simple tale to tell you guys- last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and a couple of friends ate dinner at- Tuscany Caffe & Restaurant in Dania Beach and the hole in the wall-casual Italian joint which has something like 10 tables/50 seats served-up food that literally blew us away!

No bs- Tuscany Caffe & Restaurant is an absolute must try- that is unless you’re not into a reasonably priced menu, loads of daily specials, big portions, absolutely dynamite food, super pleasant staff!

Just a heads-up, based on the size of the crowd that Jeff Eats saw on a Wednesday Night at 7:15pm in mid-July, Tuscany Caffe & Restaurant is far from being an “undiscovered gem”- with that in mind, if you go, RESERVATIONS would be a real smart move!

You can catch menu/info at tuscanycaffe.com.

* Harmony Street with Mike Miller and Amanda Cohen.

Just made a reservation for 4- at Uncle Eddie’s Ristorante, 4050 South US Highway 1, Jupiter, Florida 33477, (561) 508-7799, uncleeddiesristorante.com….

This is round-two for Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats with Harmony Street at Uncle Eddie’s- our first outing was back on June 5th with a SRO crowd of over 200 “partying” with reasonably priced-delicious Italian food and assorted beverages while former Mystic, Mike Miller and Earth Angel, Amanda Cohen blew the house away with dead-on 40’s/50’s/60’s covers.

Let me wrap-up this tale by saying, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats loved our June 5th Harmony Street- Uncle Eddie’s “outing”- as it reminded us of the Brooklyn and Staten Island Italian joints that we used to frequent in the mid 70’s & early 80’s!

Really looking forward to round-2 on Wednesday night, July 17th…

***** Charlie’s Mini Donuts & Coffee, 1023 East County Road 540A, Lakeland, Florida 33813, (863) 500-1414.

Got a real good donut joint for you guys to checkout, Charlie’s Mini Donuts & Coffee in Lakeland.

Simple tale to tell, something like 16 different mini cake donuts/coffe/tea menu, order at-pickup at counter, handful of inside tables.

Earlier this morning, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “discovered” Charlie’s Mini Donuts & Coffee and I gotta tell you that the freshly baked cake donuts were just what the doctor ordered. For you guys who right about now maybe wondering “Hey Jeff, what the hell were you and Mrs. Jeff Eats doing up in Lakeland-on the Monday morning following the long Thanksgiving Day Weekend?” Not that it’s any of your business- but Jeff Eats had an early business meeting with Publix’s CEO Todd Jones at Publix’s corporate headquarters at Publix’s Corporate Office, 3300 Publix Corporate Parkway, Lakeland, Florida 33811.

Anyway, like I said three seconds ago, the mini cake donuts were exactly what the doctor ordered, that’s assuming you’re into cake donuts, which Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats happen to really enjoy with our morning hot coffee. Just so you guys and Jeff Eats are straight with each other, if you’re not into cake donuts, Charlie’s Mini Donuts and Coffee is probably not gonna work for you- because there isn’t a yeast-raised donut insight!

Let me wrap Charie’s Mini Donuts & Coffee by saying that the joint is open Tuesday-Thursday 7am-8pm/ Friday-Saturday 7am-9pm/ Sunday 7am-3:30pm/ closed Monday, that you can check menu/prices/info at charlies-mini-donuts-coffee.business.site and that Charlie’s Mini Donuts & Coffee’s- Snickers Mini Donut is worth the price of admission alone!

The premier musical tribute to Carole King, TAPESTRY: THE CAROLE KING SONGBOOK, is BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND after a SOLD-OUT show last season!

“…Brilliant! With a stellar band, Suzanne brought the audience on a journey through the songbook of Carole King…featuring one of the most life-changing albums of our era.”

This show recreates the sound and vibe of a 1970’s Carole King concert experience following her legendary album, “Tapestry.” You will be transported back to the iconic image of her multi-million selling album of 1971.

Impeccable attention to detail is taken in recreating a respectful and accurate musical presentation of piano and vocals, just as they were. Suzanne’s performance will take you on a journey back to those great recordings. During the 70’s & 80’s, Carole played solo, with acoustic musicians, and a full band with horns during this period. This show is performed in any of those formats.

TAPESTRY not only presents the record-breaking, Grammy-winning album of the same name, but is a retrospective of the iconic songwriting team of Goffin and King, and her hits that continued into the 70’s. This prolific team wrote chart-topping hits for artists such as Aretha Franklin, Bobby Vee, The Beatles, James Taylor, the Drifters, Donny Osmond…and the list goes on.

You will feel the Earth Move under your feet with this show!
