As we gradually try to return to some semblance of our former lives, many restaurants have had to shutter their doors forever (so long NaBu, we’ll miss you), while others are offering dining at reduced capacity. Many places are offering specials to entice back into your old routine. 

Bona Italian 

Bona Italian has some kind of special nearly every night of the week. Monday night is the restaurant’s “Give Back Mondays:” with 10% of your dine-in or take-out dinner bill returned to local non-profits. Tuesday nights, their $10 off every $40 dine-in or take out order. On hump day it’s Wine Down Wednesday, with a complimentary glass of house wine served with every entrée. On Thursday, all pizzas are 50% off (with the purchase of an entrée), and there’s also a 40% discount on many wines by the bottle. Friday and Saturday offer weekly specials. And, if you’re still not ready to dine-in, every night through September you can get a large two-topping pizza and two-liter bottle of soda for just $16.95, to take out or delivered. Call 954-565-7222 or go to


If you haven’t stopped in at Sarava, the healthy food spot on Dixie’s Highway (across from Wilton Theater Factory), now would be a good time. Known for smoothies and shots, Sarava is offering $3 off its big bowls (more than a salad, it’s a meal) and $1 off smoothies. Not only is their food good for you, but it might also help you shed a few of those pandemic pounds.
