HMF (at The Breakers Palm Beach)
From a hotel locale that's a throwback to more sophisticated times to a riverside restaurant surrounded by lush tropical flora, Emeril dropped by these one-of-a-kind places you have to try.
Glamorous Palm Beach
HMF (at The Breakers Palm Beach) - HMF is an ode to golden era Palm Beach, with all of its high-style and unapologetic decadence. It's named for billionaire rail and oil tycoon, Henry Morrison Flagler, the man that made Palm Beach truly America's First Resort Destination.® Order from an extensive menu focusing on fresh, seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients. Do try one of handcrafted, rave-worthy cocktails or a selection from the 40-plus page wine list with more than 1,600 varietals from around the globe.
buccan - One of the hottest spots right on the island of Palm Beach is this contemporary American restaurant offering exceptional cuisine in a casual, stylish setting. Owner and Executive Chef Clay Conley has a "progressive American" approach that blends the flavors of his New England childhood with Asian cuisine, the rustic Mediterranean and the sensual influence of Latin America.
The Atlantic Avenue Scene - Delray Beach
32 East - With a prime location along vibrant Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach is all about the experience, service, wine and of course... food. Featuring a distinctive, yet approachable menu, award-winning Chef Nick Morfogen introduces a fresh appeal to his innovative Contemporary American style menu, which changes daily.
50 Ocean - Also in Delray Beach but with a different perspective – floor-to-ceiling windows offering a sweeping panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean. This second-floor restaurant presents a casually elegant atmosphere for enjoying lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch from a contemporary-themed menu. Small plate delights, such as Tuna Tartare and Carpaccio of Beef are also available in the bar, which features a dramatic backlit quartz counter surface.
The Great Outdoors and Cooking for a Cause
Swank Farms - This husband-and-wife run hydroponics farm invites you to tour their growing houses and then "plant" yourself at their tables for a series of al fresco luncheons, featuring local and nationally known chefs. Calling on the best of Florida's farmers, ranchers, artisanal producers, microbrewers and organic wine makers, the multi-course meals is of the highest quality. Luncheons take place through April 4, with the next taking place on February 10.
Guanabanas - Opened by Jupiter surfers as a sandwich shop in 2004, this restaurant has grown to become a local institution for three reasons: the tropical setting, great cuisine and cocktails, and of course, live, Florida-style music. It's 100 percent open-air, with woven tiki huts, banyan trees towering overhead and hand-chiseled coquina stone pathways underfoot.
Quantum House - Quantum House is a caring and supportive home that lessens the burden for families whose children are receiving medical treatment for serious conditions. While on-location, Emeril donated his time and expertise in the "Chef for a Day" program. You can too. Volunteer to help cook a meal for the families living in the house. Help show these families going through tough times some extra love and support.
