Southern France meets south Florida at the Palm Beach branch of Café Boulud. Here, Lyon-born chef Daniel Boulud offers the same pitch-perfect French cuisine as that of his New York restaurants, with deftly prepared standards like potato-leek soup and red wine-braised short ribs. While the feel of the dining room is formal, it sidesteps stuffiness by avoiding the New York outpost’s mahogany and leather. Instead, Boulud uses a tropical palette of yellows and oranges, illuminated through ample windows and French doors. Guests can dine outside on the lovely terrace which overlooks a tropically landscaped courtyard. The restaurant boasts a prime location in the historic Brazilian Court Hotel, just steps from Worth Avenue.
