Whether you’re looking for the latest health-blasted culinary infusions or a steak that will rock your sense of taste and your choice-side of potatoes, West Palm Beach, Fla. is a good place to live. The area boasts dozens of excellent dining options for a range of palates and budgets. Here are five hot spots that fall on the finer side of the restaurant spectrum.
Located in the Village Commons, Cafe Toscano offers a little taste of Tuscany in West Palm Beach. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is perfect for enjoying a plate of pasta and a glass of wine. The interior even features giant bottles for aging wine. Cafe Toscano serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and offers several vegetarian-friendly options.
A little further away (located on Dixie between Franklin and Nathan Hale), Marcello’s La Sirena is another upscale Italian restaurant with a pretty dedicated West Palm Beach fan base. The lobster ravioli and other seafood dishes are especially popular, and the restaurant has a wine or prosecco that pairs perfectly with each dish.
Indus Indian and Herbal Cuisine
Do you have a special place for ethnic flavors from the east? Another place great for vegetarians, but that serves some mean lamb as well, is the Indus Indian and Herbal Cuisine restaurant. It’s affordable and rather casual, but still has a clean and elegant feel that makes its appearance on this list appropriate.
Arguably the finest Indian food restaurant in West Palm Beach, the restaurant offers a weekend brunch buffet that is the perfect way to cap off a weekend. Lighter eaters can forgo curries and gravies for fresh salads and healthy soups. Live Bollywood entertainment is sometimes available. If any of this sounds good to you, you can find it near Lake Mangonia and The President Country Club.
With a history of serving up slabs of tender beef that stretch back some 60 years, Okeechobee Steakhouse has a place in the hearts and stomachs of many West Palm Beach steak lovers. Are you one of them?
If you haven’t yet visited this dining institution and are craving a good ol’ American meal at a place that has class but proudly lacks pretension, Okeechobee Steakhouse should be on your radar. Unless you are a vegetarian, that is. While there are meatless options available at this Zagat-rated restaurant that certainly aren’t bad, it’s the steaks that most patrons find it easy to dole out the cash for.
If you prefer your cow in gourmet burger form, do yourself a favor and check out Relish Burger on Northwood Road. Choose from bison and brie, elk with bacon and cheddar, wild boar, snapper, Italian sausage, black bean, and mushroom burgers.
Creative toppings include the restaurant’s signature relishes (drunken onion, artichoke spinach, citrus remoulade, and more), several types of cheese, and an assortment of fresh veggies. Sweet potato fries and onion strings make for sinfully delicious side dishes. And if you aren’t satisfied with savory alone, then one of the restaurant’s handcrafted shakes should help you round off your meal. Chocolate truffle and salted caramel are certainly favorites.
Rounding off the list is Table 26, a restaurant with expectations that are almost always exceeded. Specializing in New American cuisine, Table 26 is a relatively new eatery that offers tasty and original gastronomic creations in a lovely atmosphere. Culinary arrangement matters here, and it adds to the vibe. Chef Steven Polowy’s culinary influences range from Thailand to Peru so you can expect a medley of flavors such as prosciutto-and-peach and applesauce-and-chorizo.
