Originally, the idea of a super club appeared in the U.S. in the 1930s and 40s as a public dining-out experience for the evening meal, called “supper.” The menu often included steaks and seafood, in a slightly formal setting and required gentlemen to wear jackets and ties.
With a nod to history, my husband and I dressed up for the occasion and we set out to enjoy a romantic candlelight dinner for two. The décor throughout the intimate dining room is both glamorous and inviting. I could tell it was a dining establishment that draws equally from both the local society scene and guests staying at the resort.
A quick perusal of the menu made my my mouth begin to water. I couldn’t wait to sample the chef’s specialities, especially since nearly every dish is infused with locally grown ingredients.
We started by sharing a plate of chilled James River Creek Oysters in apple mignonette. It was easy to get lost in the delicious moment, especially after my first sip of the Larose de Gruard bordeaux, which was elegantly smooth.
I ordered the Masami Ranch American Wagyu and, with each bite, it melted on my tongue, bursting with flavor. If you love beef, which I do (my grandfather is a cattle farmer) then you know that the Masami Ranch in Northern California has the only certified 10+ domestic pure bred Wagyu available in the U.S. One word: phenomenal.
The sides were equally spectacular: Anson Mills stone ground grits with white cheddar and onion and foraged wild mushrooms.
Just when I thought the night couldn’t get any more magical, our fabulous waiter brought out a flaming dish of créme brulée and a pumpkin spice sugar cookie. We ate every last crumb.
Whether you're celebrating an important event or a simple night out on the town, you will never forget a single meal at Angle at Eau Palm Beach.
Insider Tip: If you're with a large group, make a special request to sit at the Onyx table. Fit for a king and queen, as well as their royal subjects, the Onyx table seats 12 to 14 and is the center piece of the room -- a great place to see and be seen.
