The first wave of summer dining deals have hit the Palm Beach restaurant scene — and that means prix fixe menus, two-for-one drinks and more are on the table.
During what is historically a slower time of year, peak season bargains aim to attract locals after seasonal residents have moved on to summer residences elsewhere.
Other dining offerings will be introduced over the summer, but for now several three-course prix fixe menus – for lunch and dinner – are part of the offerings.
Fixed price menus are usually available in addition to regular menus.
Prix Fixe Lunch, Dinner Menus in Palm Beach
Café L’Europe offers a prix fixe dinner menu ($58) with a choice of three entrees, three starters and three desserts.
Escargot, tomato tartare, chicken Milanese, dill-crusted salmon, grilled shrimp and lemon linguini, and chocolate lava cake are among the selections.
Florie’s at the Four Season also offers a three-course dinner menu.
With set dishes, the $85 menu starts with kale salad with fingerling potatoes, mackerel and spicy dressing, followed by grouper with citrus salad and tomato carpaccio.
The dessert is a lemon pie with meringue and blood orange sorbet.
Fixed price lunch and dinner menus are offered at the Almond.
The three-course lunch menu ($25) offers various selections. Among them: hot and cold Brussels sprouts in the style of a Caesar salad, and a Vietnamese chicken salad with nappa cabbage, peanuts and sweet chili sauce.
Almond’s prix fixe dinner menu ($45) features dishes such as steamed mussels, steamed mahi in banana leaves and roast chicken with potatoes, natural juice and green vegetables.
On weekdays, a three-course lunch price is available at Bilboquet.
The $45 menu starts with a choice of heirloom tomato gazpacho or marinated pepper salad with candied tuna and candied lemon.
Other selections include pan-fried branzino; chicken paillard with quinoa and kale salad; and rum baba with Chantilly.
Café Boulud’s weekday three-course lunch menu ($49) features selections such as tuna crudo, asparagus salad, niçoise salad, mussels mariniere, hot chocolate cake, and lime pie.
Elsewhere on the island, look for deals on wine and other drinks.
At LoLa 41, a happy hour from 4-6 p.m. now offers 50% off house liquors, beer, wines by the glass, and signature cocktails (happy hour also offers $10 sushi rolls and small plates).
