Fruity (yet firm) drinks served at West Palm’s Avocado Grill


The bar: Avocado Grill

The vibe: Whitewashed wood walls. Reggae music in the background. A menu largely focused on the avocado, which chef Julien Gremaud says is the most Florida fruit in the world. It does tropical in a subtle, authentic, non-cheesy way. You want to spend the day perched at the bar, or on one of the sun-drenched high tops, or at an outside table having a cocktail, enjoying the music and wishing you could blink and wish the whole place to an island somewhere.

The drink: The Strawberry Spritz looks like a lightweight girlie drink (no offense, lightweight girlie drinks!) It’s so pretty and fizzy and berry-licious! And … then you take a sip and taste the gin and the bite of the ginger beer, and suddenly you remember not to judge a book, or a drink, by its cover. And its strawberries.

Other noteworthy libations: “Different” is usually what you say when you can’t think of how to say you don’t like something. But the Kiwi Basil really is different — a mixture of rum, agave and the aforementioned fuzzy little fruit make a strong showing (and a strong drink).

Bar bites: As we mentioned — and as the name reminds you — avocado is a staple here. Try it in the grilled avocado wedges, with watermelon salad, or the jumbo crab and avocado in a fetching little compact tower (yum, yum, yum). Veggies are represented, too, with the delicious goat cheese-stuffed zucchini blossoms, and the sea makes an appearance in the sushi and the unbelievably tender octopus, chorizo, almonds and fingerling potatoes.

Deals: Happy hour is seven days a week from 4-7 p.m.

Information: Avocado Grill, 125 Datura St., 561-623-0822
