Militello Clocks In At The Office Tomorrow
That would be The Office in Delray Beach, the latest sleek restaurant from the David Manero Restaurant Group (whose Miami outpost is DeVito South Beach). This pairing seems more suited to Militello's creative talents than 1 Bleu ever was.
The Office, 201 East Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach; 561-276-3600.
