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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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


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


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


CWS Bar and Kitchen in down­town Lake Worth serves a va­ri­ety of hip­ster items. It also of­fers craft beer, wine and cock­tails.
