Strengthening Alberto aims for Gulf coast, heavy rains likely in PB County

This restaurant is the best indie restaurant in Palm Beach County!


Palm Beach Post Food Editor, Liz Balmaseda picked the best and brightest in dining for 2016 in the Critic’s Choice Awards. The selections are based on her 2016 dining experiences.

 An excerpt from the 2016 Critic’s Choice Awards:

BEST INDIE RESTAURANT

Avocado Grill, West Palm Beach

Restaurant owner Julien Gremaud wears many hats at his small, much celebrated restaurant in downtown West Palm Beach. He’s the executive chef, the pastry chef, the mastermind of party brunches, the fine-tuner of ambiance.

And while setting and such may be important to those seeking a lively, urban dining experience, it’s the food that brings me back to this spot for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

Gremaud isn’t capable of delivering a careless dish. His dishes are full of flavor, yet never overly rich. From his raw bites to his brunch benedicts to his larger dinner plates, the food is spectacular.

This is where I had my favorite dessert of the year: Gremaud’s dulce de leche lava cake. It’s the bite that proves this health-minded place can be sinful as well. Avocado Grill is a gem.

Avocado Grill: 125 Datura St., West Palm Beach; 561-623-0822.
