Red Corner | Jupiter Restaurant Review

October 22nd, 2012

The Red Corner is on the corner of Indiantown Road and US Highway 1. We thought it was going to be just the next Chinese restaurant but it encompasses much of the Far East and does it with sophistication and excellent taste.

Red Corner in Jupiter

First of all, the décor is excellent. It’s really a great room plan if I could compare it to a house. To the right is seating and a large bar with a few flat-screen televisions. Straight ahead is the sushi bar. Behind that is the kitchen. Glass with colored florals inside gives you a peek of the kitchen but hiding a direct view. To the left is plentiful seating. Soothing red and burgundy colors mixed with Asian sculptures take you away to the Far East.

We started with the Vietnamese Summer Rolls; cooked shrimp, rice noodles, peanut cucumber, lettuce and basil leaves. It was heavenly and light, served with a sweet & sour sauce. Not since I lived in downtown Chicago could we find anything like this. We also tried the Peking Duck Crepe, Asian Lettuce Wraps and Shanghai Pot Stickers (with shiitake mushrooms and balsamic).

For our main course we had some sushi. You can really go to town on the sushi. The pink sandwich is excellent. On another trip we tasted the Szechuan Filet Mignon Cubes which is served on a sizzling plate. The Birds Nest (lobster, scallops, shrimp in potato taro) was also delightful!

The Red Corner is located at 251 S US Highway 1 in Jupiter, Florida 33477, right across from the Jupiter Yacht Club condos for sale . They can be reached at (561) 747-2988.

Delicious!!!

 

Sushi is so fine!

Is it a good idea to rent a house that is listed?

October 22nd, 2012

Here is a question which I recently received.

Is it a good idea to rent a house that is listed while rented seasonally or if that is a bad idea?

Thanks

Todd
Todd,

Basically they have a low chance of selling because the renter is not interested in selling.

The renter does not want to be bothered because they don’t get anything out of it. They usually make it difficult to show and keep the house messy. Can you blame them?

My advice is to give the renter some incentive. Give the renter a month off the lease if it is under contract and successfully closes while they are in the house. All of a sudden the renter will become an asset, pushing for the sale, and not a liability.

7 New Stores at PGA National’s LA Fitness Center

September 7th, 2012

Snowbirds coming down this fall will need a road map to recognize the LA Fitness Center. There are an incredible 7 new additions, giving the shopping center near 100% occupancy. The most important are the Brooklyn Water Bagel Company, separate sister store, Brooklyn Water Pizza & Pasta Company, and Tunies.

Everonyone is aware of Brooklyn Water Bagels. They have a water treatment plant on premises that duplicates Brooklyn water. Scooper Melts, iced coffee, and of course, bagels, are now on-site instead of driving 10 minutes on PGA Blvd. The Pizza and Pasta will serve pizza and pasta just like the name says.

Tunies is a natural grocery and vitamin supercenter. They took the entire Walgreens space. This should bring some out-of-the-area traffic as well.

In addition, Allstate Insurance Company, Eye Expressions Optical, Hwang’s Martial Arts, the Oxygen Bar, and Fairway Jewelers have already opened or will be opening by fall.

This will also be a boon to our walk-in traffic and exclusive Homes for Sale ads on our windows. Please stop by and say hello when you check out all of the new additions to the LA Fitness Center.
