PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently crowned Florida's Top Resort in the prestigious 2015 Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa announces a 2016 season featuring exclusive new experiences that reinforce the coastal resort's trend-setting approach to the new Palm Beach lifestyle, including a chic new oceanfront restaurant and lounge, a celebrity-chef led culinary program with fresh menus and exciting gastronomic events, a bespoke Cultural Concierge program and "The Infinite Glamour Project," a transformative gala season beauty compendium at the Forbes Five-Star Eau Spa.
"We're thrilled to share our latest expressions of the modern Palm Beach lifestyle with new and returning guests this winter season," said Michael King, managing director of Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. "Winter is an exciting time in Palm Beach and we're dedicated to providing our guests with distinctive programs and experiences that embody the spirit of this award-winning destination."
Winter season highlights include:
- The Breezy New Face of Palm Beach Chic
Furthering the resort's position as the preeminent "see and be seen" culinary destination for both locals and visitors alike, a fresh-faced Breeze Ocean Kitchen will be unveiled in late November, introducing a dramatic new design, menu focus and personality of the coveted piece of beachfront property. The redefined space exudes a distinct Palm Beach style and sensibility that is at once chic and inviting with design details that include a "look out" bar floating above the resort's private beach and innovative GPS-controlled slat roofing that seamlessly adjusts for optimal Florida sunshine and protection from afternoon showers. The seafront social hub encourages days and evenings that linger with unmatched vistas, dynamic music scene, farm-to-glass juice program, vintage cocktails and light bite menus of Floridian flavors, reflecting influences from Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia, from sunrise to sunset, daily.
- Celebrated Culinary Leadership
Chef Josh Thomsen has taken the reins of the resort's culinary program as the new Executive Chef and brings a resume that reads like a virtual "who's who" in gastronomic circles, having worked alongside renowned chefs such as Thomas Keller, Joachim Splichal and Michael Mina. This is the first winter season for Chef Thomsen who will premiere exciting new menus throughout the resort that sing with a singularly seasonal focus. A fresh Mediterranean Bistro concept will be unveiled in Temple Orange; creative artistry in signature restaurant Angle, and a series of exclusive winemaker dinners, each attended and led by a member of Napa Valley's oenophile royalty, including the owners of Cakebread Cellars and Silver Oak.
Leading the craft cocktail craze, Stir Bar & Lounge will also debut new menus that showcase the sharply honed expertise and passion of resort mixologist, Eric Greczel. The artfully curated menu features trend-leading techniques and combinations such as rums with tableside smoke infusion, gluten free craft beers, tea-infused cocktails and a new, private label Eau Whisky, selected exclusively for the resort and barrel-aged on property.
Leaving no dining experience without the Chef Thomsen touch, the resort's exclusive Club Lounge will premiere a refreshed culinary focus for guests who reserve Club level accommodations with expanded selections for continental breakfast, light lunch fare and a cocktail hour with premium spirits, wines and seasonally driven hors d'oeuvres. Twilight offerings of decadent desserts and after dinner cordials make the perfect nightcap.
