Here are a few of his favorites:
Favorite breakfast place?
My kitchen. I have chickens so we have fresh eggs every morning. My specialty, fried egg, cheese, ham on a toasted English muffin.
Favorite Happy Hour spot?
Don’t go out often, but when I do it’s usually to meet friends at the Brass Ring Pub. Frozen glasses and great burgers!
Favorite lunch spot?
P.A. BBQ. Best BBQ in town, well at least the best you can buy.
Favorite place for a business lunch?
City Cellar in City Place. I always run into someone I know there.
Eddie Ste[hens dines at Howley’s. Restaurant.
Favorite place for Sunday brunch?
The Sundy House in Delray Beach. Natural pools, beautiful gardens and an unbelievable Bloody Mary station!
Favorite romantic restaurant?
Again, the Sundy House. At night there is a different ambience where it looks like a tropical rain forest all lit up. Great venue for a romantic dinner for two. Especially on a cool dry evening where you can eat outside in one of the many secluded areas within the gardens.
