North county pick: KRAVE

Within a cozy, comfortable space, Chef Michael Rolchigo creates some of the best fine-dining dishes in north county. He pays close attention to detail, from appetizers to desserts, each course exquisite. It’s no wonder the former Jupiter Island Grill chef has brought in quite a following to this Tequesta space. His food is inspired and creative, but it’s also accessible to the mainstream palate.

Among the highlights are a pistachio-crusted Colorado rack of lamb with goat cheese mashed potatoes, a king salmon with a kale-cashew crust and red quinoa and a bouillabaisse that’s swimming with fresh scallops, shrimp and lobster and served with an optional Pernod mister at the table.

Hours: Krave will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays (5 to 10 p.m.) until full season hours (Mondays through Saturdays) start in November. Reservations are a must.
