upscale rec need for Palm Beach Gardens area
- freakerdude Feb 3, 2008 02:15 PM
I need a somewhat upscale rec for the PBG/Jupiter area next weekend. I don't care for steak houses in general, no matter how high end. I want there to be a bit of atmosphere and have based my findings below on this.
Here is what I have to decide on and maybe you can offer me some other advice. Thanks in advance.
Aqua Grill (I have my doubts though)
It's been years, but I loved the River House. Not too familiar with that area anymore though...hope someone can give you other recs.
Oakwood is a GREAT option. I have frequently mentioned them on this board, their wine list is fabulous, their steaks are superb, and their fish is as fresh as can be. The Oak fired grill is fantastic and adds a wonderful touch to the meats and fish.
Another great option in the area is the classic Cafe Chardonay, or if you want something a little more off the PGA strip, head up Alt. A1A to the Gazebo Cafe, great food and quiet atmosphere.
I'd avoid the river house. Salad Bar is fantastic, but the food is Ho-hum.
Same for Aqua, I've eaten there twice, both times the fish tasted weeks old.
You also might want to think about the new Metronome Grand Brassiere. It is the sister to the New York staple Montparnese and offers a wonderful high class french bistro atmosphere and decadent food.

re: Alfred G
That's where I reserved for tomorrow night. Popped over last night to take a peek, looked nice.
Also had a solo meal at Metronome to try it out. Interesting tapas menu at the bar, however, chicken "croquettes" were not croquettes at all, but rather a couple crispy chicken tenderloins. Smoked paprika aioli didn't quite have enough bang but a little salsa of roasted peppers was good. A lot of food for a $4.50 tapas. Triple truffle burger (truffle butter, truffle oil, truffle cheese) was quite good.
