Jupiter’s 1000 North has been earning a reputation that’s as impressive as its celebrity partners (which include Michael Jordan and Ernie Els). It’s well-deserved too. This stunning waterfront restaurant overlooking the Jupiter Inlet and Jupiter Lighthouse features an inventive modern American menu executed by Executive Chef Jason Von Bomel, who loves introducing diners to new flavors. During Restaurant Week, he recommends two restaurant favorites that will be on the prix fixe menu: the BBQ #1 Ahi Tuna, an elevated take on comfort food featuring cornmeal-crusted oysters and green onion country ham butter, and the “street corn” Caesar salad with cotija cheese, cornbread crumble and charred corn relish.

3800 Ocean

Featuring fantastic oceanfront views and a vibrant atmosphere, 3800 Ocean Restaurant & Lounge at Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Resort & Spa is known for its “collective kitchen” led by Chef Jeffrey Armusik. Each chef brings their unique insight to the dining experience using regional ingredients and flavors. You might enjoy a dish that recalls the comfort food of New England or the Caribbean traditions of Jamaica. During Restaurant Week, start your meal with the Panzanella salad, featuring local arugula, tomatoes, garlic croutons and fresh mozzarella with a red wine vinaigrette (add a shrimp or crab cake for an added cost). For your entrée, consider the brined hickory-smoked, center-cut pork medallions, with peach and jalapeno chutney and sweet potato and plantain puree. Close out your oceanside meal with the indulgent banana cheesecake.

Family owned and operated in Palm Beach Gardens for nearly 35 years, Café Chardonnay features locally sourced ingredients prepared from scratch daily. Chef Frank Eucalitto creates colorful, seasonal dishes with ingredients from local fisherman and farmers. Chef Frank also relies on his Italian roots, often incorporating sauces he learned while cooking alongside his dad as a child. One Restaurant Week dish that highlights his signature style is Key West pink shrimp served “scampi style” tossed with Tuscan olive oil, garlic and local, baby heirloom tomatoes. Another special treat is Chef Frank’s classic “No Anchovies!” Italian-style menu, now available at Café Chardonnay.

This bar and restaurant within The Chesterfield Palm Beach hotel is nothing short of a Palm Beaches icon, known for its sophisticated but fun Gilden Age glamour. For Chef Gerard Coughlin, it’s all about being passionate about cooking, working with the finest ingredients and having a wonderful team. Leopard Lounge features an eclectic mixture of classic American, English, Asian and other international dishes, as well as signature recipes by founder Beatrice Tollman, including shrimp stroganoff and the ultimate South Florida dessert, Key lime pie.

Chef Angelos Demitry’s dinner menu includes traditional favorites such as eggplant Parmigiana and rollatini and chicken and veal entrees, alongside seafood, steaks, pork and lamb chops, pastas and some of the best sauteed chicken livers and crab cakes you’ll find anywhere.

The ideal Restaurant Week experience here might include the beet carpaccio featuring pears, goat cheese, lavender powder, walnuts and pomegranate dressing, followed by the portobello burger topped with balsamic onions, whipped feta and roasted red pepper spread. Complete your meal with the oh-so-decadent red velvet brownie with cream cheese icing.

With locations in Delray Beach, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, family-owned Ramen Lab Eatery is a hip, fast-casual staple of the local dining scene. According to Chef Louis Grayson, these are the only ramen shops in Palm Beach County that make their very own ramen noodles from scratch in house daily. During Restaurant Week, get an authentic taste of Japan and order the Naruto ramen. This dish features the restaurant’s famous, fresh noodles bathed in traditional tonkotsu pork broth. The special marinated soft-boiled eggs add a kick to each bowl. It’s all topped off with Naruto crab cakes, pork belly and marinated cooked bamboo, then finished with miso paste and garnished with scallions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

Sundy House

Here, you can dine on new Florida cuisine in a beautiful tropical garden setting featuring waterfalls and coral rock paths. But it’s not just the setting of Sundy House that’s to-die-for; the menu is incredible too. Try the savory scallops risotto, delectable churros and a Key lime pie martini.
