(PRESS RELEASE)_On Wednesday, September 15, celebrate National Linguine Day with a fork, a spoon, and a bib at one of these classic, Italian-centric gems that will be serving up some of the best linguine ("little tongues" in Italian) in Palm Beach County.
Delray Beach hotspot City Oyster and executive chef Jordan Stilley will honor the annual pasta holiday with its signature Frutti di Mare ($35), an "eat it to believe it" linguine dish crowned with lavish portions of shrimp, clams, mussels, and calamari. Fresh pastas are made daily at City Oyster's in-house bakery on the second floor. Happy Hour lovers are invited to pair their fresh catch with 2-for-1 cocktails, domestic and international beers, and select wines from 4-7 p.m.
City Oyster is located at 213 E. Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach. For more information, call (561) 272-0220 or visit cityoysterdelray.com.
Meanwhile, Josie's Ristorante, a rustic, family-owned eatery in Boynton Beach, will commemorate the protein-packed carb fest with palate-pleasers like Linguine with Sebastian Inlet Clams ($25) and Shrimp Scampi ($29) loaded with fresh garlic, white wine, lemon, and a rich, butter sauce over linguine. Mop up your bowl with Josie's pillowy soft (and free!) garlic rolls. During Happy Hour, from 2-6 p.m. and 9-close, make a toast with salud-worthy sips.
Josie's Ristorante is located at 1602 S. Federal Hwy., Boynton Beach. For more information, call (561) 364-9601 or visit josiesristorante.com.
