Meat Market 

The Meat Market was opened by a hard-working chef, Sean Brasel, in Miami where it gained extreme popularity causing him to open another location in Palm Beach. The Meat Market on the wealthy island is an excellent addition to the local high-class restaurant scene with supreme cuts of beef and a sophisticated, sexy ambiance. On the menu there's a selection of reserve cuts like 7-oz Kobe Filet Mignon, 30-oz Kobe Beef Tomahawk Rib-eye and 32-oz Center-cut Dry-aged Porterhouse ($90). If you're indecisive, the Gourmet Meat Sampler ($49) is a good option- it comes with a combination of small cuts of Kobe filet cooked with a crisp,

The Lake Trail is a 5.5-mile path running north to south along the barrier island of Palm Beach. The scenic town is known for its upscale estates, tall palm trees, blue ocean views and beautiful landscaping- which all make the Lake Trail an excellent route to endeavor. Along the way, bikers will pass 18 eye-catching sites including the West Palm Beach skyline, Society of the Four Arts, The Breakers and historic Kennedy bunker on Peanut Island. 

The towering age-old coconut palms on the island create a nice shady path (particularly in the morning) for riders to get a glimpse of exclusive high-end backyards of impressive estates. Sites like the Estee Lauder Mansion and Flagler Museum are an incredible display of Gilded Age architecture and history in

One of the many nice things about living in Palm Beach County is that even in Winter you can spend time on the water. Here are a few fun things that you are sure to enjoy.

Here are four great, authentic Mediterranean restaurants in Boca Raton and Delray Beach that you are sure to enjoy.

Prezzo

Prezzo was recently re-opened by Boca Raton's "Big Three," award-winning chef Mark Militello, chef Burt Rapoport and chef Dennis Max. The three have worked together since the 80s and opened Prezzo together in 1989. The wood-burning pizza oven restaurant was a major success in the 90s which gave all three chefs opportunities elsewhere around Palm Beach and Miami-Dade Counties. They went their own ways because of this but have gathered to re-open Prezzo with its pizza classics and a new flavor-focused menu.

The east gallery is a tribute to more than 100 people who have helped turn Palm Beach County into the beautiful place it is today.
