A QUICK TOUR OF PALM BEACH

The Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival kicks off its 9th year on December 10, attracting tons of foodies, fans and culinary talent to the 10.4 square mile town. You can purchase tickets to the events, which take place over 4 days and include dinners, Chef vs. Chef volleyball tournaments, cooking demos and kids activities, but even if you don’t make it to the festival, Palm Beach is a fun place to spend a winter weekend. Here, our short list.

WHERE TO EAT

BUCCAN + BUCCAN SANDWICH SHOP
IMOTO

350 S. County Road
561.833.3450

Chef Clay Conley seems to own this strip of S. County Road, with two restaurants and a sandwich shop. Start your day with the beef carpaccio topped with balsamic onions and arugula sandwich, end your night with anything from the wood-burning oven at Buccan. And then find some time to hit Imoto for fresh sushi and pork belly buns.

CAFE BOULUD AT THE BRAZILIAN COURT HOTEL
301 Australian Avenue
561.655.6060

Chef Daniel Boulud’s restaurant in the Brazilian Court Hotel may very well be my favorite spot in all of Palm Beach. The food is incredible and the outdoor courtyard is as picturesque as you could ever imagine. The entire place also just underwent a massive facelift, making it even more perfect.

NICK & JOHNNIE'S
207 Royal Poinciana Way
561.655.3319

Sunday brunch here is a must do. Chicken and waffles, avocado toast, delicious brunch bowls - all the perfect antidote to whatever you might have done Saturday night.


WHERE TO STAY

THE BRAZILIAN COURT HOTEL
301 Australian Avenue
800.552.0335

This historic landmark hotel is super elegant and perfectly situated within walking distance of the beach and of all of the restaurants and shops on Worth Avenue.

THE BREAKERS
1 S. County Road
888.273.2537

Nothing says Palm Beach more than this storied hotel, which has been around since 1904 and has welcomed guests ranging from at least six U.S. Presidents to celebs like Elton John. It’s opulent, over the top and the perfect place to spend a weekend.

THE FOUR SEASONS
2800 S Ocean Boulevard
561.582-2800

A little off the beaten path, but it’s a Four Seasons, so you know what to expect. Great beach, great service and good food.


WHERE TO SHOP

WORTH AVENUE
Everything you could ever want, from Cartier to Calypso, is on this strip that extends from the Ocean to the Intracoastal.
