The Royal Palm South Beach Miami has two top-notch restaurants onsite: Catch Miami, helmed by chef Hung Huynh, winner of season three’s Top Chef, and Florida Cookery, led by local chef Kris Wessel. Catch, which is an outpost of Catch Restaurant in New York City’s Meatpacking District, focuses on seafood dishes, offering both a hot and raw menu. And Florida Cookery’s eats highlight local Floridian fare inspired by Wessel’s upbringing — you’ll find lime grilled chicken with avocado, fennel and arugula on a hoagie roll, as well as guava and smoked pork sliders with slaw.
Florida Cookery’s sleek space opens up to the South Beach hotel’s pool, with a long bar where sunbathers can sidle up for a cocktail like The Royal (tawny port, crème de violette, prosecco, blackberries and grapes). You can feel the ocean breeze while you dig into lunch or dinner. Catch Miami is a two-story restaurant offering a polished ambience, with exposed brick walls, extra-tall ceilings and copper drum lamps that cast a warm glow. With a large bar, sushi bar and dining room, this spacious spot is sure to start your night out in South Beach right
