Il Bellagio at City Place; Great Brick Oven Pizza, Salads and Martinis

July 27th, 2007

By Kirby Collins

West Palm Beach, FL – While visiting CityPlace last weekend, it was obvious brick oven pizzas and martinis without gin or vodka are all the rage, so being hip and all we asked around and locals told us “Il Bellagio” was the place, and we were not disappointed.

Il Bellagio Italian staff was excellent, our waiter Carlos was friendly and explained the menu very well without the snobby facial expressions you might expect when you mispronounce an item. The atmosphere is perfect with both inside and outside dining options, we’d been walking around all morning and chose inside where the air-conditioning was a welcome comfort.

We shared the “Pizza Pesto” and a “Insalata Parmigiana” along with a “Tropical Martini”, afterward we had an Italian Coffee. Everything was terrific and the prices were very reasonable. Il Bellagio is one place I look forward to visiting again.

Il Bellagio is located at 600 S. Rosemary Ave. Ste. 170 in CityPlace.


Bargain Hunting in Palm Beach along Worth Avenue

July 25th, 2007

By Kirby Collins

Palm Beach, FL – When you think of shopping for bargains, the last place you’d think of is Worth Ave in Palm Beach, but if you’re looking for bargains on Jimmy Choo shoes or a Louis Vuitton purse, this is the place.

During the summer, Florida’s heat becomes unbearable for many of the rich and famous who frequent the luxurious boutiques along Worth Ave, and the merchants slash pricing. So if you’re looking for great deals on a Cartier watch, visit Worth Ave in Palm Beach during July or August and dress comfortably.

Worth Ave is located in Palm Beach, Florida.

Palm Beach; One of Florida’s Best Beaches

July 23rd, 2007

By Kirby Collins

Palm Beach, FL – Palm Beach has always been the winter playground of the elite like Henry Flagler, the Kennedy family and The Donald. However the beaches of Palm Beach are at their best in the summer when the winds die and the seas are calm. July is when the water clears, boats anchor up offshore and everybody enjoys the water which is just cool enough to provide relief from the Florida sun.

We visited Palm Beach at the east end of Royal Palm Way, Okeechobee Road becomes Royal Palm when you cross the Intracoastal Waterway. There is limited parking and it may take a while to find a spot on weekends, however weekdays during the summer shouldn’t offer much too difficulty. If you go, don’t forget the change for the parking meters.

Palm Beach is located at Royal Palm Way and S Ocean Blvd in Palm Beach.
