Five Palm Beach Culinary Gems

When you think of Palm Beach, you probably think of sunshine, serene white-sand beaches, and, if you’ve been paying attention, exquisite restaurants. The region is known for its diverse and vibrant array of local eateries, and they sure aren’t slowing down. Fortunate residents of the Palm Beach condos at 3550 South Ocean Boulevard will find themselves nearby a number of world-class dining options. Here are five of our favorites.

Sant Ambroeus | 340 Royal Poinciana Way

The first Sant Ambroeus opened its doors in Milan back in 1936. In the subsequent eight decades, this dining mecca expanded to Madison Avenue before reaching Downtown NYC and then making its way even further south to Palm Beach. While it’s profoundly difficult to single out one pasta dish from the array of vibrant options, their Paccheri alla Burrata is as good as it gets. And if you’re in the mood for seafood, their branzino and their salmon are stellar. The interior is 60s-influenced with a distinct contemporary flair; the service is wonderful; their wine list is large and finely curated; and—it must be mentioned—they have gelato.

Cafe Boulud | 301 Australian Avenue

Daniel Boulud, former Bon Appétit Chef of the Year and James Beard Award winner (among a litany of other accolades), has restaurants in Singapore, London, Montreal, Toronto, Boston, D.C., New York and—fortunately for residents of 3550 South Ocean—Palm Beach. This acclaimed French-American eatery has a diverse and inventive, seafood-centric menu. We adore the squash risotto and the Parisian gnocchi, but every dish here is a unique culinary adventure. It’s a can’t-miss destination for a special evening.

Seafood Bar at The Breakers | 1 South County Road

You’re not going to believe this, but Seafood Bar has great seafood. Their oysters are incredible, and the lobster is heavenly—and the same goes for the grouper, scallops, and the truffle gorgonzola fries. And the atmosphere is lively yet tranquil. The large windows look over the water, and the bar counter is itself a luminescent aquarium. Go for the seafood; stay for the sea vibe.

Ta-boo | 221 Worth Avenue

Ta-boo is a Palm Beach institution if there ever was one. It opened its doors in 1941, later becoming known as a favorite stop of Frank Sinatra, John F. Kennedy, and Rod Stewart, among many other notable figures. It has a classic, old Palm Beach vibe; you can feel the history. And the food is great. Their brie and pear pizza is sweet and well-balanced; their poached salmon salad is refreshing and deep; and their ahi tuna burger is a must-try. Whether you’re stopping by for brunch, dinner, or just a few drinks, Ta-boo is well worth your time.

Table 26° | 1700 South Dixie Highway

Global comfort food: in their own words, that’s what Table 26° is bringing to the table. Nautical themes are a dime a dozen in Palm Beach, but this one works. There’s a level of sophistication and refinement to their approach—it’s chic without trying too hard to hit that mark. They have a wonderful happy hour and a substantial wine list. Their pork chop and their braised short ribs are local favorites; their grilled shrimp with mango has a delightful, airy tang; and they make a mean cocktail.

Now that you know the neighborhood, it’s time to explore 3550 South Ocean, and it’s all even better in person. Join us for a tour and experience firsthand what true Palm Beach luxury is all about at 3550 South Ocean.
