Palm Beach is known as the winter playground for the rich and famous. The tony island and its surrounding towns offer top-notch and, in many cases, unpretentious restaurants helmed by a slew of coveted chefs from around the globe. From upscale vegan and Southern fare to local beer and burgers, here are the best restaurants in Palm Beach County.
Lindsay Autry dug deep before opening her highly lauded, seasonally-driven hub, the Regional Kitchen & Public House. The concept is like her own delicious memoir, with a menu that highlights her North Carolina upbringing, Greek grandmother’s cooking, days working in top Miami restaurants for super-chef Michelle Bernstein and, as the title suggests, regional culinary history. With it, she’s breathing life back into all of West Palm Beach’s CityPlace. The cavernous space — once home to several failed restaurant concepts — now buzzes with a bespoke playlist and diners crowding in to try Autry’s creative fare. Dishes include a Low Country Boil chock full of Florida seafood; Bucatini a la Americana peppered with country ham; and vibrant tomato pie and pimento cheese prepared tableside.
