MENU

C WS B a r a n d K i t c h e n serves a va­ri­ety of hip­ster items. Among the dishes de­signed to at­tract food­ies are the bone mar­row burger, crispy Brus­sels sprouts and the cous­cous salad. CWS runs a full bar that serves craft beer, wine and cock­tails.

AT­MOS­PHERE

CWS oc­cu­pies the down­town Lake Worth spot that long was home to The Cot­tage and, be­fore that, Wicked Wil­lie’s. There’s an airy out­door court­yard that some­times hosts live mu­sic, and an in­door din­ing room with chairs up­hol­stered in dark leather. CWS seems to have main­tained The Cot­tage’s fol­low­ing: The place was packed for our Satur­day night visit.

OUR FA­VORITE

522 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth, 561-318-5637 Hours: Tues.-Sun., 4-11 p.m. Brunch starts at 11 a.m. Sat. and Sun. Note: Post writ­ers will anony­mously visit a res­tau­rant in your neigh­bor­hood each week in search of the best menu item. They’ll tell you about that item and why they liked it in this spot each week.

FOOD/PRICE

We liked the grilled pineap­ple and cous­cous salad ($14) with shrimp (add $7). The dish boasted gen­er­ous por­tions and a unique mix of fla­vors. The fish tacos ($18) also were tasty.

REA­SON TO GO

A unique menu and a wide va­ri­ety of choices of beer, wine and cock­tails.

SER­VICE

Friendly and effic ient . De­spite the crowd, our meals ap­peared just a few min­utes af­ter we or­dered them.

NOISE LEVEL

Loud, although in a con­vivial way. We vis­ited on a crowded Satur­day night, and we sat next to a bois­ter­ous group cel­e­brat­ing mul­ti­ple birth­days.

KID FRIENDLY

Not ex­actly. The full bar makes CWS an adult spot, and we didn’t see any chil­dren dur­ing our visit.
