OUR RESTAURANT CRITIC REVIEWS CAFE MED
By Susan Rosser
If a trip to Positano is not in your immediate future, but you long for a beautiful Italian meal overlooking the sea, then plan your next dinner outing at Cafe Med at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort. The restaurant in Deerfield Beach has indoor and outdoor seating, and when the weather is pleasant they open up the glass doors so diners can enjoy a gentle breeze off of the Atlantic.
Celmente “Lillo” Teodosi took charge of the kitchen at Cafe Med in May 2016. His strong Italian roots coupled with over 30 years of experience qualifies him to offer creative new takes on traditional Italian cuisine. Lillo was born and raised in Rome, Italy where he was “thrown into the kitchen” at 9 years of age. He moved from Europe to Chicago in 1979 and opened four different restaurants there before he moved to Boca Raton.
At Cafe Med every table is presented with a warm, crusty Italian bread served with three distinctive dips; parsley and garlic, red pepper and artichoke and an olive tapenade. I’ve been to Cafe Med more times than I can count, yet I still can’t pick which one is my favorite. I do know that I could make a meal out of that bread and those dips.
For a lovely and light start to any meal, the finocchino con arance e olive is a refreshing salad of shaved fennel, arugula, oranges and olives in a lemon citronette. The close proximity to the sea may put you in the mood for seafood. There are plenty of options. We had an impressive combination of clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops and lobster all served in a light and perfectly spicy tomato sauce — a perfect vehicle for dipping that bread.
There is a plethora of steaks and chops and plenty of pasta options. One of our favorites is the tagliatelle mari mari, a Roman pasta dish with shrimp, clams, mussels, pancetta, mushrooms and peas in a roasted tomato sauce served over pasta that you can actually taste.
They offer three classic Italian desserts: ricotta cheesecake, tiramisu and cannoli. (There is also a gelato shop in the hotel — perfect for an aprés dinner cone and a stroll on the beach.)
