The culinary scene continues to open up across South Florida. Here’s the latest.

Its menu, however, remains as robust as ever with favorites like the Pirate Bowl (fish, shrimp, calamari, clams and mussels in a white wine, garlic and butter broth. Reservations are strongly suggested due to the limited seating. Mention that you read about Pirate Republic on this post and receive one complimentary traditional caipirinha.
- Johnnie Brown’s: The longtime hub for live music near the railroad tracks on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach (pictured above) is under new management—Clique Hospitality.

Its reopening on Monday included updated safety protocols, additional sanitation stations, staff use of gloves and masks, and enforced social distancing. Happy hour runs from 4 to 7 p.m., and specials will be offered throughout the week—including Whiskey and Wings on Wednesday, with $5 Jack Daniels cocktails and $1 wings.
