Table 26: A Welcoming West Palm Beach Hotspot
When we opened our luxury showroom in West Palm Beach, we were so excited to experience the flavors of Florida. After many visits down to the sunshine state, we have found our favorite: Table 26.
The tagline for popular West Palm Beach restaurant Table 26 describes this eatery as a “neighborhood restaurant with global cuisine in a sophisticated, casual setting.” Indeed, the global offerings on the dinner menu (Ahi tuna poke or sea scallops in a champagne and corn cream) bring dining to a whole new level. Yet, New American dishes (lobster mac and cheese and a grilled pork chop with edamame succotash) are also well-represented. Celebrated restaurateurs Eddie Schmidt and Ozzie Medeiros, along with executive chef Amit Jain, are the leading reasons behind the success of Table 26.
The Creation of Table 26
Eddie Schmidt was the former Maitre d’ at Palm Beach Grille, while Ozzie Medeiros was a longstanding presence at Taboo on Worth Avenue. Together, they operated LoLa 41 and LoLa Burger, two of Nantucket’s most beloved dining spots. After selling their Nantucket locations, they are enjoying life back in the Palm Beach area. Joining with executive chef Amit Jain was another inspired choice; this chef is known for pairing the freshest ingredients with the best seasonings for delicious meals that have color, beauty and texture.
The epicurean menu at Table 26 is divided into several categories. These categories including Field (salads), Hand (sandwiches), Water (fish) and Land (meat). Signature sides like charred cauliflower, truffle French fries or maple-glazed acorn squash can be added to dinner plates. Remember to save room for dessert, the dulce de leche ice cream and bananas brulée in caramel sauce is legendary.
A daily happy hour is another popular option for a glass of wine or one of the restaurant’s signature cocktails. Try a refreshing Clover Club combining Plymouth gin, raspberry syrup, lemon juice and an egg white. Experience a spiced pear Manhattan made with Angelʼs Envy bourbon, St. George spiced pear liqueur and Dolin Rouge vermouth.
Located in the heart of the historical Mango Promenade District where it is two blocks south of the Norton Museum of Art, Table 26 is open for lunch, Sunday brunch, happy hour and dinner. The proprietors consider their restaurant to be a home away from home, and a place where the doors are always open to friends old and new.
