It may be inconceivable today, but once upon a time, Miami ’s dining scene was not well-regarded. More often than not, diners were left unimpressed by the quality of cuisine, price and service offered by the city’s establishments.
However, Miami’s culinary reputation has undergone a welcome renaissance in the last two decades. The city now features a wealth of internationally acclaimed restaurants, the finest of which Elite Traveler shares here.
Located in the architecturally impressive lobby of the Biltmore Hotel, Palme d’Or more than lives up to its surroundings. Set between the hotel’s iconic courtyard and historic swimming pool, the 1920s-era dining room is like taking a step back in time to the golden age of luxury.
With James Beard “Rising Star” nominee Gregory Pugin in charge of the kitchen, Palme d’Or offers an excellent menu filled with French culinary delights. As well as the exceptional a la carte menu, Pugin has devised a nine-course chef’s tasting menu.
Consistently regarded and rated as one of Miami’s finest dining destinations, the restaurant offers exceptional service and a fine wine list amid a modern yet classy décor. Those looking for a romantic evening of exceptional food enjoyed in beautiful surroundings need look no further.
