With its tropical climate and proximity to the beach, Palm Beach is a destination that’s made for long, lazy weekend brunches. Fortunately for guests at The Chesterfield Palm Beach, there are plenty of venues that serve a superlative Sunday brunch, whether it’s perfectly executed French bistro classics, sunny Mediterranean-inspired fare or seasonal American farm-to-table cooking. Make the most of lazy Sunday in Palm Beach with brunch at one of these recommended restaurants.
The Leopard Lounge & Restaurant
Served until 11am, start the day at The Chesterfield Palm Beach with a hearty feast in The Leopard Lounge & Restaurant. Those who prefer a savoury brunch can tuck into smoked Chilean salmon served with a range of delicious complementary trimmings. For a more traditional brunch, choose from Classic Eggs Benedict with a side of Canadian bacon or Smoked Salmon Benedict smothered in Hollandaise. There are healthier options with smashed avocado and poached eggs on toast or a vibrant Seasonal Fruit Plate. For a decadent sweet treat, opt for the Classic French Toast scattered with fresh berries.
The Floridian outpost of the much-loved New York original, Café Boulud brings the effortless elegance of a French bistro to Palm Beach. Weekend brunch is offered between 11am-2.30pm and includes a sumptuous three courses. Start with a charcuterie plate or Berry Peach Parfait that’s perfectly complemented with rich Greek yogurt. Follow it with a classic French-Rolled Omelette or fluffy Belgian waffles with apple and walnut compote. And then there’s dessert: the tangy Key Lime Pie with grapefruit sorbet is a star attraction.
The Regional Kitchen & Public House
As its name suggests, The Regional celebrates local, seasonal American produce and is the brainchild of much-lauded chef Lindsay Autry. Located in West Palm Beach, brunch is served on Sundays from 11am-2.30pm and includes a broad assortment of US favourites such as Cornmeal Flapjacks served with bourbon blueberry jam and Broccoli & Cheese Frittata, which is a hearty mix of broccolini, local kale and melted fontina, plated with tangy roasted tomatoes. Accompany your meal with one of its excellent brunch cocktails. The Frosé is a refreshing blend of rosé, Aperol and citrus.
The third opening from popular chef Clay Conley, Grato is the Mediterranean cousin to his American-inspired Buccan and Japanese Imoto. Kitted out with a wood-fired pizza oven, the restaurant is much-loved for its traditional Italian fare. Popular in West Palm Beach for its Sunday brunch served from 11am to 3pm, Grato offers a hearty choice of regular late-breakfast/early lunch contenders. Begin with a crisp Blood Orange Mango Mimosa (bottomless, of course) before working your way through a menu that features Lobster Benedict, deliciously light Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with a smooth cream cheese gelato, and an all-American Chicken and Hash Brown Waffle. Brunch diners can also sample the mozzarella-melted delights of the wood-fired oven thanks to the Breakfast Pizza, generously topped with egg, bacon, sausage and spinach.
