Palm Beach: A Restaurant Renaissance

10 of 11

Once synonymous with country clubs and endless orders of Cobb salad, the Palm Beach dining scene is getting a reboot. These five spots are driving the action; this month, you can also mingle with chefs Daniel Boulud, David Burke, and Jacques Torres at the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival (December 7–11).

Blind Monk: Tiny wine bar with tapas-style nibbles and 45 bottles poured by the glass. 410 Evernia St. $$

Buccan: The restaurant that kicked off the local culinary revolution, with an eclectic menu from chef Clay Conley (order the short-rib empanadas). 350 S. County Rd. $$

HMF: The Breakers’ new lounge and bar, designed by Adam Tihany and named for railroad magnate (and resort founder) Henry Morrison Flagler. 1 S. County Rd. $$$

Imoto: The blue-blazer crowd knock back lemongrass-sorbet cocktails between bites of sashimi at Buccan’s younger sibling. 350 S. County Rd. $$$

PB Catch: A sophisticated ode to seafood (seared jumbo scallops; local yellowfin tuna) with sleek, yachtlike interiors and a raw bar. 251 Sunrise Ave. $$$
