Without a doubt, the greater Miami area has some of the freshest seafood around, and in Deerfield Beach, fresh is always the most important factor. When you are right on the water, that just makes it easier to go straight from the nets to your table. To do that, it also passes through the hands of some of the best chefs along the Atlantic coast. There are few better outdoor dining experiences than beachfront seafood. There is also a strong influence from the diversity of the Caribbean, including Cuba and other islands. Other international influences like Italian and classic French are present as well. This adds a level of innovation and complexity to local dishes while still appealing to traditional tastes.
