Summertime is our time to visit the less busy bars for bar food and drinks. Cafe Brule is a favorite place for great mussels and inventive tacos. The tall salad with hot crispy chicken is my wife's favorite and I like it too.

For me giving out an excellent rating for a restaurant is rare. Fortunately, a recent visit to BB found me in the right place at the right time. Its August in Delray so things are refreshingly quiet and the seasonal laid back feel is here for a short while. This is an ideal time to do Delray since the tourist... More

Happened upon this restaurant by sheer chance. We had booked at the restaurant next door but it was absolutely dead and had noted how busy Brule looked so decided to change restaurants. They were immediately able to seat us (no reservations allowed) so we were very lucky. It has an instant buzzy feel to it and clearly very popular. Had... More

On my fourth visit to Brule, yesterday night,with 2 other couples I brought with me I had a very unpleasant surprise. The food is great, the service too, but the level of noise has grown to unbearable decibels. You can not have a conversation or hear anything except the screaming of patrons seated in a long table in the middle... More

Off the beaten path of Atlantic Avenue is a wonderful restaurant in Pineapple Grove. I almost don't want to tell you about it so that it can be a place mainly for locals......The food is excellent. The dishes are well thought out, and prepared in an open kitchen by a team that clearly is well trained in the culinary arts.... More

For a restaurant to survive "Atlantic Ave". in Delray Beach you have to be more than just "good". First time visit and this place is amazing. Staff - from hostess to waiter and food server - everyone extremely friendly. They make you feel like you are the only one in the restaurant. Food was absolutely scrumptious! All 4 of us... More

This is one of my favorite Delray Beach restaurants. I love the scallops and the brussel sprouts. Eating outside on the patio is a real treat during the cooler days.

It's not complicated. Take fresh ingredients, combine those that entice and maybe even confuse the mind but stimulate and excite the palate, serve it in a clean environment and leave well enough alone. The food will speak for itself. That is what Brule has done. When a restaurant can add a sauce but you can still taste the main core... More

So glad our hotel recommended this place! My requirement was "someplace yummy" and they delivered. Everything we ate here was some of the best food we have had out in a very long time. Our first visit was a weekday, late lunch. There were still a good amount of people in the place. Ray was our server and was amazing!... More
