Award-winning chefs and hot new restaurants that have quickly become nationally recognized as such have raised the bar on the Palm Beach culinary scene – and our palettes couldn’t agree more! Here are our five top picks for Palm Beach food experiences out on the town:

Buccan, with its progressive American menu, and Imoto, its Asian focused “little sister” right next door, are small plate, big flavor chef driven concepts opened by acclaimed chef Clay Conley.  With a robust bar scene and a lauded menu, Buccan’s tables are some of the hardest to get in Palm Beach and Imoto is quickly following in its footsteps.

Virginia Phillip, a Master Sommelier, recently opened her namesake Virginia Phillip Wine Shop & Academy in downtown West Palm Beach. Here, guests can speak with the “master” herself and select from her favorites.

Café L’Europe is another cornerstone of Palm Beach dining.  This European, romantic hotspot offers everything from its popular caviar bar to stuffed quail with foie gras, accompanied by nightly music on the baby grand piano.

Cucina Dell Arte is one of the premier Italian restaurants on the Island with an inviting, open-air atmosphere and sidewalk-side seating. Not to mention, it is known as ‘the’ place on the island for amazing nightlife.

From the partners behind the successful West Palm Beach French brasserie Pistache, PB Catch offers local seafood served up in creative ways as well as an exquisite raw bar, all in an entertaining, energetic atmopshere to enjoy a  full dinner or just a snack.

Paradiso is Italian at its best! Master Chef and Owner Angelo Romano was born into a family of Italian olive oil and wine producers and has been creating Italian culinary masterpieces since he gained his first summer job at a restaurant on the island of Capri.  You will love their authentic dishes representing all of the most delectable regions of Italy as well as their extensive wine list.
