I’ve been in Boca Raton, Florida for the last few months and have gone to Palm Beach more than I would have ever thought. It’s the perfect place to walk around, shop and eat. The dressed-up atmosphere instantly makes you feel like you are on vacation. Here are some of my favorite things in Palm Beach.
Pizza Al Fresco
Pizza Al Fresco is situated in a courtyard of an alleyway off Worth Avenue. It’s like a little Italian paradise. The outdoor seating is great for both lunch and dinner. For lunch, I like to share a pizza and get a Panzanella salad. For dinner, it’s pizza and lots of amazing homemade pasta!
Sant Ambroeus is in the Royal Poinciana Plaza and has tons of outdoor seating. A hot spot from New York, it has a delicious burger and chicken sandwich, and the fluffiest pancakes. I like to grab their famous iced cappuccino to-go, to carry with me while I shop.
Lola 41 is the restaurant in the new Palm Beach White Elephant hotel. It’s my favorite kind of restaurant, one where you can have a little of everything. We shared all the food family style, enjoying lobster fried rice, mac and cheese, poke “Nachos”, and the most delicious sushi. While it was a little too crowded for COVID, tasting the food makes it obvious as to why this is a new hot spot.
Trevini wins the best Italian food in Palm Beach according to my G-pa. He is right, the food here is amazing. My mom and I shared eggplant parmesan and an eggplant ravioli dish with pesto and marinara. Yum!
The Royal Poinciana Plaza
This outdoor mall is a great place to go if you are looking to shop for popular brands. This mall houses both Sant Ambroeus and Celis which are both included in this post. I love looking into LoveShackFancy and Alice and Olivia for fashion inspiration and have so much fun in Stoney Clover looking at their fun patches. If you are looking for even more high end, this mall has the Palm Beach Hermes and YSL.
Worth Avenue is a famous attraction of Palm Beach. It’s more for window shopping and walking around but you can often find cute boutiques in the alleyways. One day when walking along Worth Avenue I stumbled into Raptis Rare Books and was fascinated by all of the first editions and classic books on display. If you are into history or literature – this place is a must-see. Additionally, as an art lover, I love exploring the plethora of high-end galleries along the busy street. Worth Avenue has something for everybody if you look for it.
In Royal Poinciana Plaza, Celis is the perfect place for a quick bite or snack. Pictured here with my Sant Ambroeus drinks is their acai bowl, and as you can assume by the thick layer of peanut butter, it is to die for. Celis also has delicious sandwiches, toasts, smoothies, and juices. My favorite juice is orange, carrot, lemon, and apple – sometimes with a dash of turmeric.
Shopping and Eating are two of my favorite things! On the way up to the RH rooftop, you can browse the furniture and design and then as you reach the top of the stairs it opens up to a gorgeous dining area. The food is incredible and I recommend the fries and the avocado toast.
