This restaurant has the best service in Palm Beach County


Palm Beach Post Food Editor, Liz Balmaseda picked the best in dining for 2017 in the Critic’s Choice Awards. The picks are subjective and based on her 2017 dining experiences.

An excerpt from the 2017 Critic’s Choice Awards:

Best Service

Palm Beach Grill

There’s a reason a table at the Palm Beach Grill is still one of the toughest to score on Palm Beach. Loyal customers reserve one month in advance. The service here is superb. It’s the factor that keeps the place buzzing, from bar to dining room.

By Palm Beach standards, this is not the swankiest spot in town, and the décor is not the most memorable. But the place sweeps you up with confidence and sees to it that you are served well. Outstanding service is the element that enhances an already excellent dining experience. Although the menu here teeters on basic – it is a Hillstone chain restaurant, after all – the dishes are well executed and presented with polish and pride. 

Palm Beach Grill: 340 Royal Poinciana Way, #336, Palm Beach; 561-835-1077. (Click on the address to open location in Google Maps)

And, bonus, the leftover fillets are delicious when served cold or at room temp over lunchtime greens or grains. I mean, what’s not to love?  The following...

Some choice words for diabetes

Type 2 diabetes was once known as adult-onset diabetes. But now that term is outdated: Increasingly it is a disease that begins in childhood. Between 2000 and 2009, the rate of Type 2 diabetes in children jumped more than 30 percent — and it is climbing especially fast among children from poor and minority families. The prevalence of the disease...

I finally got my Bundt cake out of its pan. Here's how.

In any compendium of foods that serve a crowd, the Bundt cake is a star. It is pretty, its number of slices can be stretched and it holds for days under cover, all of which makes it ideal for a house full of company or for carrying to a cake-worthy occasion. The Bundt was not always so ubiquitous. In 1966, Pillsbury Bake-Off judges awarded second place...

Have you tried the Whole Foods sandwich that went viral?

Anyone can get their hands on the latest buzzy food craze: You just walk up to the deli at a Whole Foods, tell them you want “that TTLA sandwich” and pay $8 at the cash register.  That is, unless the deli is out of the ingredients, particularly the vegan tempeh “bacon” strips that are stuffed into the sandwich. Between...

How an 80-pound goldendoodle helped build a California wine brand

When Eric Story and Alison Smith-Story started their winery in 2014, they didn't follow any conventional path. An old saw advises that to make a small fortune in the wine industry, you should start with a large one. That was not an option, so they went the modern way. "We didn't have an inheritance, and we hadn't started and sold a software company...
