With so many gastronomic hot spots gracing this stretch of Florida shoreline, picking out our favourites was no easy feat. From laid-back beach eats to chic dinner destinations, The Palm Beaches serve up some pretty impressive dishes. Join us on a culinary tour of the region’s very best restaurants…
West Palm Beach, Fla.
The Regional Kitchen & Public House
Newly-opened and brimming with inspiration, at The Regional Kitchen & Public House you’ll find a delectable menu of Southern soul meets Mediterranean flavours. All of the dishes change depending on the season, and all ingredients are responsibly sourced – always a plus in our eyes. Opt for the Seafood Stew (filled with shrimp, snapper, Sebastian clams, tomato broth, panisse) if you want something really local and flavourful.
Cholo Soy Cocina
We are so happy that Chef Clay Carnes, one of Florida’s most exciting chefs, decided that West Palm Beach needed a bit of Latin street food (with a twist). Locally grown produce adds an element of Florida to the array of tacos and tortillas you’ll find here, each filled with the most mouth-watering fillings.
Dune Dog Café
Expect a warm welcome and a hearty meal at this low-key joint, whose laid-back vibes and island-style décor has continued to lure in visitors since 1994. Perched along Jupiter’s Intracoastal Waterway, this popular diner has been voted home of Palm Beach’s best hotdog (and ribs), and once you’ve had a bite of their Chicago dog you’ll know why.
Reservations are a must at ‘Krave’, one of the county’s premier restaurants. Having trained extensively and worked in a number of the state’s leading restaurants Chef Micheal Rolchigo continues to wow audiences with his close attention to detail, as is the case with his out-of-this-world peanut encrusted Ahi tuna with daikon radish, snow peas and micro cilantro.
Palm Beach, Fla.
Buccan – The Sandwich Shop
Queues have been known to wrap around the block for a taste of the Classic Turkey Club at the Sandwich Shop at Buccan. Sister to the upscale Buccan Restaurant, this small sandwich producer boasts some of the best gourmet sandwiches in town. And with only one hundred fresh baguettes cooked per day, the competition is high to get your mitts on one of these scrumptious artisanal sandwiches.
Following the success of DANIEL on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Chef Daniel Boulud decided to open shop in Palm Beach. Tucked away inside the Brazilian Court Hotel, the ever-so chic Café Boulud continues to impress locals and visitors alike, as Chef Rick Mace combines local produce with French cooking styles to create delicious American-French cuisine. And with stylish décor, an innovative menu and creative cocktails, it’s no wonder why Café Boulud has become a timeless hotspot on Palm Beach.
Delray Beach, Fla.
A hit with all the local hipsters, the trendy El Camino Bar has made quite a name for itself in The Palm Beaches. With two happy hours a day, dozens of craft cocktails and two hundred types of tequila, El Camino is one of Delray Beach’s most popular watering holes. Plus, there’s always their delectable menu of authentic Mexican light-bites, including tacos, quesadillas and chicharrones.
Hidden behind the time-worn walls of a 1924 home is an eclectic yet extravagant restaurant. Alive with creativity, the restaurant puts on a peculiar visual display for its guests, with Dali-inspired artwork on the walls, nightly performances from local bands and a menu boasting an exciting array of inventive dishes – making Dada a not-to-be-missed restaurant experience.
