Situated in the center of the city, Palm Beach Gardens’s Buccan is a well-established and sophisticated bistro and bar with a chic yet casual atmosphere. This restaurant is best known for its delectable small plate dishes, as well as its specialty cocktails.
Buccan is the creation of Clay Conley, a James Beard Award-nominated chef. All ingredients used in the dishes here are supremely fresh and meticulously sourced.
When I visited Buccan, I tried the Short Rib Empanadas, and I can tell you I highly recommend this dish.
Some other well-known Buccan dishes include the steak Tartare, Sweet Corn Agnolotti, Sweet Corn Pasta, and Hot Dog Panini.

With its location on PGA Boulevard, Salute Market is especially well-known with the golf crowd, but everyone is welcome here.
Just a few of the many popular dishes at Salute Market are the BBQ Short Rib, Bacon Wrapped Dates, Braised Short Ribs, Cheese Ravioli, Shrimp Risotto, and Deviled Eggs. And don’t forget the craft cocktails and superb wine selections.
700 S Rosemary Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33401
One of Palm Beach Gardens’s most exclusive shopping destinations, Rosemary Square is where you will find City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill. This American-cuisine restaurant is the creation of its Executive Chef, Rolando Anoceto.
I’m a seafood lover, and I went with the Crabcake Sandwich for my lunchtime meal. This dish was a delight for my tastebuds, with French Mustard-Tarragon Aioli, onion, tomato, and Gem lettuce, all on a bakery bun. City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill also serves brunch and dinner.
1901 S Dixie Hwy, West Palm Beach, FL 33401
There are lots of great things about Grato, but one of the best is how they don’t limit themselves to just one cuisine.
The restaurant describes itself as embracing a “multi-cuisine collection of experiences,” and as someone who has eaten at Grato, I completely agree. If you love Italian cuisine, though, you will certainly find plenty of dishes to adore at Grato.
The pizza here, for example, is superb and decidedly upscale. The Margherita Pizza, Local Mushroom Pizza, and Chicken Pizza are especially well-known.
There are also house-made pasta dishes available, such as the Bucatini Carbonara and Shrimp Linguine. My favorite is the Shrimp Linguine, which features Florida pink shrimp, basil, and oven-dried tomatoes.
2626 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410
If you crave Thai cuisine while you’re in Palm Beach Gardens, head over to Kao Gang. The dishes here are always delicious because of the fresh ingredients and culinary expertise found in this restaurant’s kitchen.
When I had dinner at Kao Gang, I was enormously impressed by how beautifully the meals are presented on gleaming white dishes.
No matter what Thai dishes you like the best, you will find them here. I ordered one of the Chef’s Specials, the Thai Crispy Duck.
It features boneless duck, a sauce made from red wine and berries, grapes, tomatoes, bell peppers, snow peas, carrots, broccoli, and asparagus. Should you try it? Without hesitation, yes! Delicious is an understatement.
4560 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33418
Spoto’s Oyster Bar and Blue Point Lounge brings Cape Cod oysters all the way to Palm Beach Gardens. The oysters for which Spoto’s is so well-loved are exclusively from Cape Cod and its clean, cold waters.
If you go to Spoto’s Oyster Bar and Blue Point Lounge during your time in Palm Beach Gardens, make sure to try the New England Style Clam Chowder. It’s smooth and delicious, the best clam chowder you’ve ever had.
While Spoto’s Oyster Bar and Blue Point Lounge prides itself on its fine food, the ambience here is relaxed and casual. Think about visiting on a Friday evening when there is live music on the outdoor patio.
2680 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410
Without question, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Wings is one of the best spots for pizza in Palm Beach Gardens.
This restaurant is conveniently situated near the 1-95, about one mile to the east. It’s found in Trader Joe’s Pizza, and PGA National and Juno Beach are close by.
Set aside time for your meal at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, so you can try out the Coal Fired Starters menu, as well as the entree of your choice. When it comes to starters, I love the Eggplant Marino.
Of course, the pizza here is legendary, and you’ll probably want to enjoy that for your entree. If you crave pasta, though, check out the Rigatoni & Meatball.
11365 Legacy Ave, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410
Steak alert! The Capital Grille has the dry-aged and chef-prepared steaks you’ve been craving. Personally, dry-aged steak is one of my favorite treats, and I was seriously impressed by the dishes on offer here.
And no matter what meal you order, there is the perfect wine on offer. Just take a look at the enormous wine kiosk here. It stretches from floor to ceiling.
If you want to have a Capital Grille dinner, make your reservations as soon as you can. While they’re not technically required, you may find there aren’t any tables available if you just show up without making arrangements.
