North county pick: THE WOODS
This 2-month-old restaurant and bar, owned by golf superstar Tiger Woods, has been a hit at the Harbourside Place dining and shopping complex in Jupiter. And for good reason: The food is delicious, the service superb.
It’s a steakhouse with the approachability of a sports bar, and the dish that best bridges the two concepts is the rib-eye sandwich. (That melted goodness atop the tender steak is Drunken Goat cheese.)
Halloween revelers, if you hit Harbourside Place Friday night, you may want to pack a picnic blanket or chair – there’s a free viewing of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” at 6:30 p.m. at the waterfront amphitheater, which sits across from The Woods.
If you visit the complex on Halloween night, you may want to see the canine costume contest (6 p.m.) before dinner. That event is hosted by the pooch shop Pucci & Catana.
