Palm Beach's Best Fine Dining Options for the Sophisticated Palate

Maybe you are fortunate enough to enjoy fine dining weekly, or perhaps you have saved up for a special meal out. Either way, you want a restaurant you can count on to provide the highest quality services. Thankfully, you don’t have to travel far from Palm Beach/West Palm Beach and the surrounding areas to find an eatery that will meet your extraordinary standards. There are several great steakhouses in the region: Okeechobee Steakhouse, Morton’s, and Flagler Steakhouse, that all offer a unique dining experience. Okeechobee Steakhouse has been in business since 1947 and boasts the well-known feel of a historic steakhouse. Morton’s and Flagler Steakhouse have more of a contemporary setting as well as several private dining options.

If you want to dine on Palm Beach but everyone in your group isn’t in the mood for steak, then you will be pleasantly surprised by all of the wonderful cafés and bistros. Located on the famous Worth Avenue, Café L’Europe has a great three course menu and an extensive wine list, as is the norm for Palm Beach. For fine dining al fresco on Palm Beach, Café Boulud in the Brazilian Court Hotel has a beautiful air-conditioned terrace and a great happy hour to beat the Florida heat. The venue is so beautiful that weddings are a common occurrence there. Continue on with the list to see what authentic French bistro on Palm Beach is worth checking out.
