Table 26 a big hit

We always get asked about great places for first dates, anniversary dinners, brunch—and we’ve got a winner for you in Table 26° just two blocks south of the Norton Museum in West Palm Beach. The ‘26°’ refers to its latitude, and the décor is thematically correct (nautical)—and the food is sublime. In fact, this may be up there in our top new picks.

Executive chef Joe Ferro started us off with classic shrimp and grits followed by smoked salmon benedict, the salmon and egg perched atop a delicious homemade potato latke (apparently from a family recipe)! The Scotch egg we tried was wrapped in prosciutto and the seafood salad was spanking fresh. If you’re a steak-and-eggs type of person, the Allen Brothers steak and eggs is a must try, with filet medallions that melt in your mouth! Then—drumroll—the crispy French toast coated in corn flakes and deep fried served with fresh strawberries, whipped cream and maple syrup.

Brunch was superb, imaginative, accompanied by adult beverages and concluded with dessert. Serious dessert. Table 26° offers S’mores fudge sundaes and warm bread pudding served with dulce de leche ice cream, among other sinful selections.

So next time you are casting around for that perfect place to while away a long Sunday brunch, point it north and prepare to be dazzled. We cannot imagine how great it is for dinner—let us know! Table 26° is on the right latitude, and squarely on our radar now.
