Palm Beach Travel Guide – Best Places to Visit and Eat

There’s something about Palm Beach. Maybe it’s the swaying trees or the crystal blue water. This is perhaps the relaxed, somewhat secluded, but perpetually talked about place. Or the first to people watch, as the island has attracted members of the fashion pack from Aerin Lauder to Katie Sturino, but still manages to feel like an intimate, tight-knit community whether you keep a residence there or that you are just passing through. Whatever the reasoning, it remains an indelible part of Florida, synonymous with luxurious homes and the glamorous lifestyle that goes with it. For your next trip down south, we’ve rounded up the best places to visit and, of course, where to shop.

CJ Walker

One of New York’s finest salons is officially open at PB, on Via Flagler, right next to The Breakers. Treat yourself to one of many treatments, including but not limited to Power Hour (read: blow-dry, manicure, pedicure). Because you deserve to be pampered at the fastest pace humanly possible.

Poinciana Royal Square

The Bilboquet

Ori Harpaz

For the South of France vibe on Worth Avenue, head to Bilboquet. The Upper East Side stalwart known for his bistro cuisine (and his Cajun chicken in particular) has joined his fellow displaced New Yorkers with the opening of his latest outpost. As owner and self-proclaimed well living Philippe Delgrange will attest to this, Bilbo always has a good time.

Cafe Boulud

Knight Brownwyn

Considered “one of Palm Beach’s most coveted dining destinations,” this restaurant run by Daniel Boulud, with its luxurious outdoor terrace at the Brazilian Court Hotel, lives up to the hype. Everything on the menu is solid, but the White Cosmo, a blend of vodka, elderflower and white cranberry, finished with an orchid ice cube, is definitely your IG moment.

at Swifty


Discover The palm beaches

Good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Swifty’s, located poolside at the Colony Hotel, is perhaps one of the most casual dining options on the island, but delicious nonetheless. Take advantage of the live music offering, especially acoustic guitarists who play everything from the Beatles to the Backstreet Boys.

Sant Ambroeus

Nicole Franzen

Located on the Royal Poinciana Plaza, Sant Ambroeus features a decadent bar and a spacious outdoor section ideal for an after-retail round of therapeutic drinks. (Because you could probably use a cocktail to help wash away the fact that you just blew your tax refund all at once.)

Lola 41

Ovi Mustea

Although Lola 41 shares an address with the White Elephant Hotel, the Nantucket-based sushi bar is a separate entity, with an extensive wine list, sake, cocktails and craft beers in a courtyard and bar adorned with vintage pieces from around the world.


the circuit breakers palm beach

The Palm Beach Breakers

No trip to Palm Beach is complete without a visit to The Breakers, and its restaurant and lounge space, HMF, is the perfect place to grab a drink and wander the historic hallways. After all, there’s a reason he was named wine spectator Winner of the Grand Award every year since the distinction was established in 1981.
