JUST IN: Enjoy beautiful gardens at new outdoor lunch spot in West Palm


Whether it’s something you regularly do or not, everyone loves a snazzy, well-done lunch with a beautiful view.

The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is now open for a full dining experience. We’re talkin’ shade from surrounding rare palms and cycads and musical entertainment by the garden’s protected residents – chirping tropical birds.

The luncheon service features soups ($6), salads ($12), grilled paninis and desserts, alongside beverages, including assorted libations.

According to Roger Ward, President and CEO of ANSG, you’ll feel as if you are going to a garden party in someone’s home.

Expect an ambiance typical of Mrs. Norton’s Southern hospitality: White table linens, beautiful china and carefully arranged place settings for the perfect tableau for a delicious meal.
