Brule Bistro

Brule Bistro is lively in both atmosphere and food. Where some pub chefs might include the obligatory flatbread on the menu, this menu offers a crispy pork cheek “pizza,” a crispy, tostada-sized round crowned with slow-braised pork cheek, Asiago cheese, arugula, pickled red onions and oven-dried tomato, served upon a board with droplets of fried rosemary aioli.

El Camino

Mexican soul food reigns at this hipster Tequila bar in Delray’s hot dining district. Try the smoked brisket enchiladas, lavished with a slow-cooked molé negro sauce. Wash it down with your choice of mescal or reposado — or any of the 200-plus varieties of tequila poured at the bar. Take in a setting that’s all funk and fun, but not in the wild, Cancun-on-Memorial-Day way.

El Camino: 15 NE Second Ave., Delray Beach; 561-865-5350.
