Palm Beach and Area Recommendations

Coming down for the holidays...looking for nice, high end restaurants...steakhouse, sushi, italian, fusion, etc...have been to Mortons, Marks (at Cityplace), and Bice in the past...haven't been to PB in a few years...

    1. For steak, there's not much in PB that isn't everywhere. ie: Morton's, Capital Grill, Ruth's Chris, etc... I suggest that if you're planning to head down to the Miami beach area at all, or don't mind driving an hour for a good dinner, you do steak down there. BLT Steak and Prime 112 on the beach are both great. Gotham Steak in the Fountainbleau is supposed to be great too but I can't vouch for that. For a shorter trip, you could check out Steak 954, a Stephen Starr restaurant, in the W Hotel - Ft. Lauderdale. If you want to stay local but don't want the chains, I'd suggest either Cut 432 in Delray (Modern Steakhouse) or Palm Beach Steakhouse, which is owned by Hillstone (same owner as Houston's). BTW - Marks in CityPlace closed about 2 years ago now.
      For sushi on PB, go to Coco or Echo. Coco is Asian Fusion and has sushi, but it isn't the feature. Echo is in the Breakers resort and has more of a sushi focus. For less high end but great sushi, try Yu-mi sushi in either WPB or PB Gardens. Best casual sushi in the area. For just seafood in general, you'll find a lot of talk on the board (and for good reason) about Leftover's Cafe and Foodshack in Jupiter. THey're by the same owner and similar concept/menu, but hands down the best fish in the area, and done in creative ways.
      Cafe Boulud in Palm Beach, is the best all around restaurant, IMO. It's a french-american menu from Chef Daniel Boulud. They've also been running a prix fixe 3 course menu for $35 which is a great value.
      I'm not big on italian so I'll let someone else give recs there, but I hope this helps.

      Cafe Boulud
      301 Australian Avenue, Palm Beach, FL 33480

      Prime 112 Restaurant
      112 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139

      Palm Beach Cafe

          I like Saito's Steakhouse and Sushi in CityPlace.

            For steak, I'd recommend Abe and Louie's in Boca Raton. I've never been disappointed with their food or service.

            Boca's Restaurant
            2901 W Oakland Park Blvd, Oakland Park, FL 33311

            Abe and Louie's
