Never have I been to a destination where everything I ate was so fresh, so delicious and begging me to return. I recently returned from the Palm Beaches and truly believe the area is a culinary delight. I’ll be honest – usually when I travel I find a dish or something I don’t really like .. but not this time. Every single dish was incredible.
Here are my recommendations for food in the Palm Beaches:
Salt7: for the meat eater
The Executive Chef, Paul Niedermann won a season of Hell’s Kitchen and is now serving up incredible food at Salt7. I love that this restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating and welcoming vibes to its guests.
For food I would highly recommend the peppercorn crusted sirloin and the Australian lamb lollipop! The meats were cooked to perfection with lush pink coloring and flavored perfectly.
For drinks I would try the smoked peach old fashioned.
Gary Rack’s Farmhouse Kitchen: for the best avocado toast
Now I realize you can order this anywhere .. but it is vastly different from restaurant to restaurant. This one from Farmhouse Kitchen had green pesto and ricotta and I added blue crab. It was all placed atop a thicker piece of toast and garnished with radishes and sprouts. It had the perfect amount of toast crunch with its toppings.
Breeze Ocean Kitchen at Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa: for the freshest food on the water
Not only is Breeze Ocean Kitchen situated perfectly on the water with the best beach views but the food is sensational. I opted to let the beach vibes pick my dishes!
For food you should definitely get the locally caught ceviche as it is made with avocado and passion fruit – and I cannot think of a better combination! Also delicious are their salads and coconut sorbet.
For drinks get the mojito made right in a coconut!
Deck 84: for the BEST fish tacos
I almost did not eat here because I was so tired and I am SO glad I did!! Hands down, Deck 84 has the best fish tacos I have ever had around the globe. They make them with their fresh catch and you pick how you want them cooked, I opted to have them fried. Then they are layered with creamy coleslaw and pickled jalapenos. So.Dang.Good.
I also ordered the crab stack and a coconut sorbet that were unbelievable.
The Circle at The Breakers: for the best brunch
Breakfast and brunch are my favorite meals. I am obsessed. I 100% judge a restaurant on its ability to poach an egg and it was perfectly poached over the hash at The Circle. In addition, I ordered a probably the best yogurt parfait I have ever had. They make the granola in house and the presentation is just incredible as well as delicious.
3800 Ocean: for the best charcuterie board and mix of ingredients
Located in the Marriott on Singer Island, this was my last dinner of my trip and it was a fine finish. The chef brought me a beautiful charcuterie board with meats, cheese, nuts – the works, and if you know me I am such a big fan of cheeses. I took a risk and ordered a salad with ingredients I wasn’t sure would pair well together and surely I came out wrong – but that is the best part of eating, trying new things. I went with the watermelon and goat cheese feta salad that was on arugula with pistachios and lychee vinaigrette. Highly recommend both dishes!
Subculture Coffee: for the best coffee
I had heard about Subculture Coffee before ever going and it is rumored to be an institution by those who have been. Artisan roasted coffee and delicious food. What more could you ask for? I went for a cold brew and fritatta sandwich.
Guanabanas: for the best Floridian fritters and waterside lunch
I really fell in love with Guanabanas! I love that they have Adirondack chairs lining the front of the establishment when you arrive and that the restaurant is so lush with greenery and facing water.
I went out on a limb and tried 2 things I had never had before: Floridian fritters and a fat Cuban. The fritters are made with local shrimp and have this incredible sweet mustard sauce paired with it. The fat Cuban was oozing with cheese and so good!
For drinks I would recommend Guanabanas’ Cat 5 – made with rums and fruit juices! So fresh and delicious.
The Seagate Hotel and Spa : for the best breakfast room service
I stayed at the Seagate for 2 nights during my trip and opted for a delicious room service breakfast during my stay. I went with the buttermilk pancake stack and bacon and it was just scrumptious! I am a big fan of bacon and they cooked it just perfectly. The bacon is also not pictured because I ate it before I could photograph it.
