7 Jupiter-Area Restaurants Worth Checking Out During Flavor Palm Beach

We’re all about food here at Jupiter Magazine—whether it’s dining at our favorite spots or exploring new restaurants around town. So we were ecstatic to learn that plenty of area eateries are participating in Flavor Palm Beach this year. Running from Sept. 1 through Sept. 30, the month-long Palm Beach County promotion offers diners three-course lunches and dinners for $20 and $30-$45, respectively. 

More than 50 restaurants from Boca Raton up to Tequesta have planned special menus for the promotion, and 22 are located right in our backyard. Think of it as a budget-friendly way to check restaurants off that foodie bucket list before busy season kicks in—that's what we're doing. 

Here are our top five picks in the Jupiter and North Palm Beach area. 


Tommy Bahama

Offering: Dinner 

Attached to the Tommy Bahama store in Harbourside Place, this restaurant promotes a laid-back atmosphere that makes you feel as if you’re on vacation. Dining with friends who all have different budgets? No problem. The restaurant is offering two prix fixe dinner menus, one priced at $30 and another for $45. With offerings like scallop sliders, coconut-crusted crab cakes, baby back ribs and parmesan-crusted chicken, there’s sure to be something for everyone. 

What we're ordering: Ahi tuna tacos in a wonton shell, Kona Longboard fish & chips, pineapple creme brulee  

 

Café Chardonnay

Offering: Lunch, Dinner 

We’re all for enjoying a decadent lunch, especially on a lazy Sunday. But Cafe Chardonnay’s Flavor Palm Beach offerings make it difficult to choose whether to stop in for an afternoon meal or reserve our appetites for dinner. Look at it this way, you can’t go wrong with either choice. 

What we’re ordering: Wild mushroom streudel (filo filled with sauteed woodland mushrooms over fontina fonduta), Serrano ham-wrapped pork tenderloin, key lime pie (Lunch) 


Evo Italian Ristorante

Offering: Dinner 

Don’t pass up the opportunity to taste dishes by Evo chef and owner Erik Pettersen . Recently featured as one of Jupiter Magazine’s chefs to watch, Pettersen was influenced by his grandmother’s cooking and adds a modern twist to Italian favorites. 

What we’re ordering: Black Truffle Sacchette (beggars purse ravioli, Taleggio cheese, black truffle, brown butter, fresh herbs and balsamic glaze), Vitello Milanese (lightly breaded veal scallopini with field greens, red onions, mozzarella, port wine vinaigrette and balsamic glaze drizzle), cannoli 


Craft Bar Kitchen

Offering: Dinner

We love restaurants who make their own rules. Instead of the standard three-course dinners common among Flavor Palm Beach eateries, Craft Bar Kitchen is offering up four courses for $35. No need to choose between an appetizer or salad, because at this Jupiter restaurant, you can have both—plus a delicious entree and dessert. Treat yourself to a handcrafted cocktail while you’re at it—you deserve it. 

What we’re ordering: Tuna tartare, Caesar salad, churrasco chimichurri hangar steak (with rice pilaf, avocado and pico de gallo), creme brulee 


The Cooper

Offering: Lunch, Dinner 

You can never go wrong with seasonal farm-to-table eats served in a rustic, welcoming space. The only problem here would be deciding what to order. The solution to this problem, we've decided, is simply bringing a few friends who are perfectly content with ordering different items and sharing everything family-style. Amen. 

What we’re ordering: Beer-braised mussels, Mediterranean Mezze Board (featuring kale hummus, roasted eggplant spread, falafel, pickled cucumbers, marinated olives and warm naan bread), gelato (Lunch) 

 

Ironwood

Offering: Dinner

Confession: We're already envisioning squeezing in some spa time before dining at this PGA National restaurant. You can't go wrong with a classic steakhouse meal, a glass of good wine and a pretty stellar view of the property that plays host to the Honda Classic. 

What we're ordering: French onion soup, Australian Wagyu bistro steak (with whipped potatoes and grilled asparagus), key lime pie with toasted meringue 

 

Salute Market

Offering: Lunch, Dinner

Instead of offering the traditional appetizer, entree and dessert set-up, the PGA Village restaurant—which pays homage to the owners' northeastern Ohio roots—is presenting dinner guests with three small plate options. Choices include warm artichokes, stuffed mushrooms, island ceviche, shrimp scampi, meatballs and more. 

What we're ordering: Goat cheese-stuffed dates (bacon-wrapped, served with paprika aioli), Spanish cheese board (manchego, drunken goat, marcona almonds, honey, crostini), and cheese ravioli. Do you notice a theme here? (Dinner)
