A highly anticipated newcomer at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, Florie’s opened in January, capping off a multi-million-dollar renovation for the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel.
Acclaimed Argentine-Italian chef Mauro Colagreco — best known for his restaurant Mirazur in Menton, France — partnered with the South Florida luxury resort for his stateside debut. Colagreco brings his signature live-fire cooking methods to the 200-seat ocean-view dining room, delivering a taste of the South of France with a local twist.
We checked in with Florie’s to find out what it has cooking:
Sips of Summer
Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach sommelier Jessica Altieri has been curating and hosting a monthly wine series since May. Imbibe in a themed micro wine tasting experience alongside family-style bites from Florie’s like brasato al barolo (pot roast cooked in barolo wine) and crispy calamari with bagna cauda (garlic and anchovy) sauce.
The series, which is held in Florie’s private dining room, wraps up in October so be sure to snag a spot at the last two events of the season. On September 12, explore Italian sips from the family-owned Michele Chiarlo Winery during Piedmont on a Plate, or sign up for Wine Country Classics on October 3 to try sustainable pours from Napa Valley’s Joseph Phelps Vineyards.
Florie’s Sunday Brunch
This weekend treat is already on the map for its free-flowing Ferrari Trento brut and rosé, market oysters slathered in sorrel cream, and classic burger topped with aged Vermont cheddar.
Come November, look for the restaurant to kick off its seasonal brunc, which will offer a mix of interactive chef stations served from the open kitchen and dishes presented tableside. Menu highlights include everything from brunch staples like custom omelets and pancakes, to salt-crusted whole fish and tandoori-roasted suckling pig.
Kids will like watching the margherita pizza made before their eyes, and parents will appreciate the champagne bar.
Epic Views and Entertainment
There are two spots to sit, depending on the type of view you’re angling for. If you’re craving sea vistas and a soundtrack of lapping waves, ask for a table on the oceanfront dining terrace. You can gaze out over the shimmering Atlantic while sipping on a sparkling glass of Moët & Chandon.
If you prefer live-action entertainment, request a booth by the open kitchen and catch a glimpse of your main course being made.
To start, ask for Colagreco’s “sharing bread and poem,” a fresh-baked loaf and a copy of Ode to Bread by 20th-century Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. The addition of lemon-ginger olive oil adds a citrusy Florida twist that will make you appreciate breaking bread on a whole new level — as will the poem.
End your meal with tiramisu layered with lemon biscuits and mascarpone cream. It’s a light, flavorful and beautifully plated dish inspired by Colagreco’s grandmother’s recipe. Both will soon become your family favorites, too.
Thanksgiving Brunch and Dinner
If you’re traveling to South Florida for Thanksgiving, check out Florie’s.
The details are still being baked, but be on the lookout for the restaurant to host a special Thanksgiving-inspired brunch during the day and a holiday-themed feast come dinnertime. Colagreco will even be onsite to celebrate with guests. More details for it (and a new fall menu) are coming soon.
