Healthy eaters, this is your paradise.

Bolay, the Royal Palm Beach restaurant famous for its build-your-own super-foods bowl concept, is opening its second location 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 4 at 3333 Northlake Boulevard. The first 25 guests in line will get a free catered party for as many as 10 people at a date and location of their choosing.

Bolay offers seared proteins and vegan-friendly fresh side dishes. Bowl bases include gluten-free cilantro noodles, Peruvian quinoa and marinated kale and currant salad. Vegetable picks include roasted Brussels sprouts, smoky cauliflower and Cajun sweet potatoes. The selection of proteins will satisfy just about every kind of eater: Ponzu tuna, Caribbean-spiced steak, lemon chicken and miso-glazed tofu.

Wash the bowl down with cold-pressed juices or infused teas, then top it off with chocolate mousse, peanut butter Pots de Creme or gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.

Bonus: If you have a fussy eater in the family, the newest Bolay is just a few shops down from The Habit Burger Grill in the same Banyan Tree center at the corner of Northlake and MacArthur Boulevards across from Costco and the former Sports Authority.

Don’t want to wait in line? Bolay also offers online ordering at eatbolay.com. Catering to homes, offices, event spaces and weddings in the Palm Beach area is another option.

Bolay’s third restaurant will open at the Polo Club Shoppes in Boca Raton in January.

Shake off damp days with hot cars and chili

North Palm Beach's Hot Cars and Chili is Sunday.

Tired of the soggy, dreary weather?

Some hot chili can brighten up the day. It tastes even better when you can gaze upon the majesty of about 200 gorgeous cars in a park on a Sunday afternoon.

The North Palm Beach Recreation Department is hosting an open car show and chili cook-off this Sunday, Jan. 31 at Anchorage Park, 603 Anchorage Dr. It’s free to get in, but a $5 per person fee to sample 12 kinds of chili benefits the village’s youth sports program.

Festivities start at noon and run until 4 p.m. The chili sampling lasts until it’s gone – generally about two hours, according to the village. Other food and drinks will be available, along with music and raffles.

To get more details, call 561-841-3386.
