We thought you could use some info that has nothing to do with being merry or drinking bubbles (although that’s a good thing to do all year long). Here’s some news to take you away from sending cards…
- Palm Beach restaurant Echo, owned by The Breakers, is open again after an extensive renovation. The Asian venue has a new Palm Beach wardrobe (pictured) of crimson, black and gold, wood paneling with metallic accents and textured wall treatments. Bright red is the color that calls for cocktails, sake and sushi. Open daily from 5 p.m. Echo, 230 Sunrise Ave., Palm Beach; 855/435-0061; https://www.thebreakers.com/dining/echo/
- Rocco’s Tacos has opened another location – but this one is in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport! Grab a taco and a frozen margarita on your way to the frozen north. This little piece of guacamole heaven is at Terminal 1, C Gates. Along with the aforementioned faves, you can find Rocco’s Simple Chicken, Desayno Tacos, buttermilk pancakes and Huevos Rancheros Divorciados. Because breakfast is served here, too.
- Speaking of tacos, look for Pink Taco to open on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach on Jan. 14, 2020. Crossing the country from LA’s Sunset Strip, this Mexican restaurant has pop-in-your-eyes interiors (pictured) along with the namesake Pink Taco ($15, achiote chicken, black beans, avocado, arbol salsa, cotija cheese, habanero & pickled onions). Open for brunch, lunch, dinner and late-night stops. http://www.pinktaco.com Ole!
- Palm Beach County’s own Clay Conley will open a new restaurant in 2020 – in Miami’s Brickell ‘hood. Chateau Miami will join Palm Beach’s Buccan and Imoto, and West Palm Beach’s Grato in the Conley universe, also known as Ember Group. Now you will have one more reason to try Brightline.
