The Palm Beaches' 10 hottest openings
by Laura Gelder | 27 April 2017
Luring holidaymakers since the late 1800s, The Palm Beaches is conveniently located between Miami and Orlando and dubbed 'America’s First Resort Destination'. It's a collection of 39 diverse cities and towns that spans more than 2,200 square miles and stretches across 47 miles of pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches, from Boca Raton to Jupiter and Tequesta. Here are 2017's hottest new openings in the region:
Hyatt Place Hotel: The new 200-room, 13-story Hyatt Place hotel opened in the heart of Downtown Boca Raton this January and is only one mile from the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Canopy by Hilton Hotels: West Palm Beach is set to become home to one of eight new Canopy by Hilton Hotels. The brand’s concept is touted as an energised and natural extension of its neighborhood, with local design, food and drink, and culture. Later in 2017, ground will break for the new 150-room, 14-story hotel, which will be built two blocks from CityPlace.
Brightline: The express inter-city passenger rail service is expected to begin this summer. The highly-anticipated train will connect West Palm Beach to Fort Lauderdale in 30 minutes, and later this autumn is expected to connect Fort Lauderdale to Miami in 60 minutes. Phase two of Brightline will connect West Palm Beach directly to the Orlando International Airport’s in just two hours.
The Parched Pig: Chef/owner of the popular Coolinary Café, Tim Lipman, opened his second culinary venture in Palm Beach Gardens in January 2017. The Parched Pig is a new craft beer and wine bar concept with a menu focused on fresh oysters, fancy toast and complex charcuteries plates.
1000 North: The Jupiter waterfront will welcome this new restaurant, partly-owned by NBA star Michael Jordan, in 2017. The first floor of the 340-seat restaurant, which also will have an indoor and outdoor bar, will be open to the public, while the 1,500-square-foot second floor will be dedicated to members and their guests only. The second floor will have a 450-square-foot outdoor patio for food and beverages.
The Warehouse District: A new food and drink-centric district! The Warehouse District is an eclectic urban neighborhood comprised of eight vintage-style buildings which is experiencing a transformation spearheaded by local food and beverage vendors, artists, fitness enthusiasts and entrepreneurs. Boasting a New York-inspired food hall, Grange Hall Market, the 85,000-square-foot district is located near downtown West Palm Beach.
MIA Kitchen & Bar: The first venture from Blake Malatesta, the awarding-winning former chef of 50 Ocean in Delray Beach, is a modern, adventurous restaurant focused on Floridian cuisine, located on West Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. The name stands for the core values of the concept—Modern, Inventive, Authentic. It will serve inventive dishes with uncommon ingredients like alligator, rabbit and frog legs.
NOBO Brewing Company: NOBO Brewing Company, also scheduled to open in 2017, will become the fourth brew house on tap in Boynton Beach’s NOBO (North Boynton Beach) District. Led by two brothers, the five-barrel brewery will have a neighbourhood approach, serving "small batch local handcrafted beer."
Prosperity Brewers: Nano-brewers Dominick Peri and Ken Gross will open Prosperity Brewers in Boca Raton later this year. The one-barrel brew house will be located inside a 2,400-square-foot warehouse bay, 900 feet of which have been fashioned into a tasting room and lounge area. The duo will brew a number of styles and offer a diverse range of constantly-rotating recipes from 15 taps. The brewery’s core profiles are currently slated with an IPA, double IPA, hefeweizen, wit, English mild and saison.
West Palm Brewery & Wine Vault: This Downtown West Palm Beach venue Incorporates grpae and grain! Set to open in the first half of this year, the brewery will be located only one block away from the West Palm Beach Brightline station and its owner will sell his own private-label bottles of California small-batch wines at the wine vault, and nowhere else in the world.
