A trio worth noting


Cod & Capers is the place to go for fresh seafood, either to cook at home or to eat in the café.

HAMPTON FORKS KITCHEN & TABLE

185 E. Indiantown Road, No. 123, Jupiter; 631-276-1197 or www.hamptonforks.com. We’re looking forward to the Cheese & Provisions store chef/owner Chris Marshall plans to open adjacent to this space, which offers a range of lunch and dinner items to go. I hear the pop-up dinners Mr. Marshall offers are well worth seeking out. The next one, called By Way of France, starts at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 13. It’s sold out, but will highlight the Pain Poilane, bread baked in Paris and shipped overnight to Jupiter.

COD & CAPERS

1201 U.S. 1, North Palm Beach; 561-622-0963 or www.codandcapers.com.

The market at Cod & Capers offers coolers filled with fresh fish and shellfish you won’t find elsewhere — the oysters here are a real treat.

I love stopping for lunch or an early dinner at the café, which has some of the tastiest crab cakes anywhere — sweet, tender lumps of crab with no filler, thank you very much.

Also great in season: The stone crab claws — cool, sweet and, oh, so appetizing.

MAMA GIZZI’S

2212 N. Dixie Highway, Lake Worth; 561-642-9996 or www.mamagizzipasta.com.

Mama Gizzi turns out fresh pastas served by top restaurants and resorts throughout the area, from Spoto’s to Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. She also offers fresh pasta to retail customers from her storefront on North Dixie Highway.

Order one of her “No Drama Mama” meal kits, with all the fixings for a dinner for four. Or make a beeline for her “Suppah Club,” a communal meal she serves in the shop. Good and good for the soul.
