Locanta Local Eatery in central West Palm Beach is a Mediterranean restaurant serving world-class Turkish fusion fare from a small strip plaza venue. The little eatery has 5 stars on Google, TripAdvisor, Yelp and Facebook for their authentic flavorful food and speedy and friendly service.
The menu consists of special plates, healthy foods, sandwiches and wraps, salads, rice bowls and soup. Many options happen to be vegan and vegetarian and everything on the menu is of light, feel-good sustenance.
Locanta's take on Mediterranean food is reminiscent of coastal Turkey, but you'll find flare on many dishes like Greek flavors in the htipiti (feta spread), Italian genius in the Tuscan falafel burger and Portuguese inspiration in the tenderized octopus with roasted veggies. From small starters like borek handpies and homemade hummus to entrees like grilled lamb meatballs and chicken pesto spaghetti, the menu will have your mouth watering right off the bat.
The restaurant offers nicely-priced lunch specials and a daily happy hour from 4-6 p.m. (they serve beer). If you order online, you'll get 10% off for pick-up or free delivery if you're within 2 miles. Dine-in and check-in on Yelp and you'll get a free appetizer or dessert.
If you haven't heard of Locanta, it's definitely a spot to try- it might just become your next lunchtime favorite. They're open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
