Eat: Restaurants in Palm Beach
They make the most delicious brunch, and the outside seating area is lovely.
340 Royal Poinciana Way, Suite 304
My absolute favorite restaurant in Palm Beach. The food is positively divine, and the restaurant itself has a quiet elegance about it.
288 South County Road
A comfortable, sophisticated American-style bistro with the best cheeseburgers on the island.
229 Royal Poinciana Way
A Palm Beach institution that has withstood the test of time. The front dining room is perfection with a classic moody atmosphere that transports one back to 1950s Palm Beach.

Stay: Palm Beach Hotels
The Colony Hotel
The apotheosis of Palm Beach style, The Colony Hotel was painstakingly brought back to life under the stewardship of the hotel’s new owner, Sarah Wetenhall. The interior designer responsible for the famed hotel’s renaissance is Mimi McMakin of Kemble Interiors. An cornucopia of pure Floridian style, The Colony Hotel is a mirage of beauty in a magical setting.
155 Hammon Avenue
Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club
Conveniently located right down the street from my home in Palm Beach, the Brazilian Court’s elegantly refined fashion and classic Spanish Colonial architecture features well-appointed courtyards framed by lush flora that give way to sophisticated interiors and a certain mélange of old and new.
301 Australian Avenue
An ideal example of 1920s early Palm Beach architecture, The Breakers highlights stylized Italian and European influences from other great Gilded Age mansions. Some might protest the hotel’s exceedingly opulent interior decoration, but I think having a cocktail or dinner at the classic Palm Beach landmark is delightful.
