Atlantic Avenue on Delray Beach is the go-to destination at any time to eat incredible food, shop and enjoy the beach just as one should in South Florida.
To some people, Atlantic Avenue is unknown. For those who are not familiar with it, they should not hesitate to visit. Those who go for food do not experience the beach or shopping, the ones who go to the beach do not explore the shopping and those who go for shopping do not head to the beach.
People will find glorious restaurants, incredible fashion and amazing tanning and bathing locations in Delray Beach.
“Atlantic Avenue to me is heaven,” said Valeria Vega, senior. “I would go all day everyday if I could.”
This location has the best and a diverse amounts of food that is very popular amongst locals. People can go there and find whatever they are cravings as the options are endless. Lynn students’ favorites are seafood, Italian, Mexican and American.
“If I could eat Mexican food everyday I would,” said Idalia Bogaert, senior. “The burrito at El Patron is by far the best one I have ever had.” El Patron is located after the bridge, near the ocean and is the place to eat amazing Mexican food.
However, other favorite cuisines, such as Italian, are not left out. Tramonti Italian Ristorante has been a very popular choice amongst the Lynn community.
“Whenever I crave Italian, I go to Tramonti,” said Jocelyn Rodriguez, senior. “My favorite plates are Linguine alle Vongole and Gnocchi Sorrentina; they should be on everybody’s bucket list.”
Seafood is also in the best food category. Lemongrass Asian Bistro and City Oyster are tops.
“I adore Lemongrass,” said Katherine Bigott, senior. “I adore sushi and it is very close to the beach so that’s a plus.”
“City Oyster is the bomb,” said Maria Cabral, senior. “I always go there for fresh and incredible seafood because the entire menu is so good that everything seems appetizing and makes me want to come back and once I try the plates I want to keep coming, so it is a foodie cycle.”
Incredible ice cream and sweets are very popular on this place. “I am in love with Kilwin’s,” said Gabriela Ibarra. “The heavenly smells that you experience once you go in is unbelievable and the taste of anything of your choice is unreal.”
The fashion statement in this street does not go unnoticed.
“I adore shopping,” said Carlotta Kauffmann, senior. “Periwinkle is one of my favorite stores there.”
“I am obsessed with Waggs To Riches,” said Cabral. “I buy everything for my French bulldog, Roma Roberta, and dog nephews, Bruno, Lucca, and both nieces, both named Nani, at this store because everything on it is gorgeous and I want to have it all.”
Finding a beach close to campus is not hard to find in Boca, however, finding one with all of these features, is only a few steps away.
“This street is a blessing for us,” said Angel Hirsch, sophomore. “The only problem that I see is deciding where to go eat or buy clothes from.”
