Flavor Palm Beach: Ten terrific restaurants to try for September-long dining deal

Find restaurants deals in Palm Beach, West Palm, Boca Raton, Delray and Jupiter

Dining-deal seekers, take note: The September-long, county-wide promotion known as Flavor Palm Beach kicks off Saturday. So far, 54 local upscale restaurants have signed up to offer special, budget-friendly menus for lunch and/or dinner. 

As in previous years, the best deals tend to cluster in central county, where some normally pricey Palm Beach restaurants roll out deeply discounted menus. Good deals can be found in north county as well. And while similar deals are more scarce in south county, Boca Raton and Delray restaurants are represented on the Flavor restaurant list.

The good news is you have the entire month to scoop up as many Flavor savings as you can. The bad news is you have just one month. 

We’re here to cut to the chase. 

Here are 10 restaurants where the Flavor Palm Beach offerings rise above the rest in terms of food, ambiance and/or setting. Prices do not include tax and tip.  

The Parisian Restaurant & Wine Bar, Jupiter 

This authentic Jupiter spot joins the Flavor wave at dinner (three courses for $35). Options include a starter tarte flambee of puff pastry, lardons, cheese and caramelized onions, main course Chicken Normandie in brandy mushroom sauce and frites, and a caramelized apple cake. 

The Parisian: 201 N. U.S. Highway 1, Jupiter; 561-360-2224  

Sandpiper’s Cove, North Palm Beach 

During any other month, this waterfront restaurant is closed to those who are not members of the Old Port Cove Marina. But during September, that water view plus three courses are all yours for $35 per person. Prix fixe options: black grouper and bay scallop ceviche, Moroccan beef kebab with red curry Israeli couscous and a campfire sundae. (Reservations are a must and they are taken by phone.) 

Sandpiper’s: 116 Lakeshore Dr., North Palm Beach; 561-626-2280  

3800 Ocean, Singer Island 

Not only are the lunch and dinner menus at this oceanfront resort restaurant tempting, they are directed by one of the best chefs in South Florida. Chef James King, formerly of Latitudes in Highland Beach, took over the kitchen at 3800 Ocean earlier this summer. Just about anything on his menus promises to be delicious. At lunch, the three-course Flavor menu ($25) features options including wahoo tiradito with crispy olives, salmon en papillote with preserved lemons and key lime chiffon tart. At dinner, options on the three-course menu ($45) include tuna crudo with fried capers, a Peruvian kebab of grilled butcher’s steak and coconut-mango panna cotta.

Cucina Cabana, North Palm Beach 

The North Palm restaurant that moonlights as a cabaret is serving a three-course dinner menu for $35 per person. The bonus here is there’s a good chance you’ll get live music with your meal. (Order the menu at the bar from Thursday to Saturday night to catch the usually sold-out Ray Chang show.) Flavor menu options include: eggplant rollatini appetizer, Snapper Oreganata and tiramisu. Important to note: The special menu is served only in the main dining room and the bar – not at the tables in the Cabana dining room, where the Ray Chang show is staged. Reservations are a must. 

Cucina Cabana: 1201 U.S. Highway 1 (Crystal Cove Commons), North Palm Beach; 561-626-1616  

Meat Market, Palm Beach

Meat Market: 191 Bradley Pl., Palm Beach; 561-354-9800  

Sant Ambroeus, Palm Beach 

Whenever one can have a three-course dinner at Sant Ambroeus, one of the priciest restaurants in the county, for $45, one snaps it up. Menu options will transport you to the Italian coast: Caprese salad, branzino with roasted farm vegetables and three scoops of gelato and sorbetto. 

Sant Ambroeus: 340 Royal Poinciana Way (Royal Poinciana Plaza), Palm Beach; 561-285-7990  

Leopard Lounge at The Chesterfield, Palm Beach 

This exotically appointed space offers one of the best lunches of the month, a three-course meal ($20 per person) with excellent options: old-school Caesar salad, chicken schnitzel with lemon béchamel and fries and a double-chocolate Belgian cake. At dinner, the prix fixe menu ($45 for three courses) includes some decadent classic entrées: rotisserie duck with wild rice, petit filet au poivre with cognac cream and others. 

Leopard Lounge: 363 Cocoanut Row, Palm Beach; 561-659-5800  

Grato, West Palm Beach 

It’s a great Flavor year when Grato has joined the party. The Buccan group’s Dixie Highway trattoria is serving a three-course dinner ($35 per person) and the menu options include some customer favorites: meatballs with polenta, Chicken Parm and a gelato flight. 

Grato: 1901 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-404-1334  

The Regional, West Palm Beach 

This Southern food brasserie serves lunch and dinner menus during the Flavor month. The lunch menu ($20, served Monday through Saturday to 2 p.m.) includes starter options like The Regional’s popular pimento cheese dish, “meat n’ two” entrees like fresh Florida fish with salsa verde with two sides and desserts like angel food cake with berries and Chantilly cream.
