Top of the Point: Dinner And A View
If you haven’t experienced the stunning view and delicious menu at Top of the Point, you need to make a reservation. The Breakers-owned restaurant is just over the bridge in downtown West Palm Beach, atop the Phillips Point building.
But don’t take our word for it – The Palm Beach Post’s Food Critic Liz Balmaseda recently gave the chic, penthouse-style restaurant high marks for service, food and panoramic views of Palm Beach.
“THE RESTAURANT: A good many of the reasons you live here glisten in the view from the penthouse atop the Phillips Point East Tower, home of West Palm’s greatest dining perch, Top of the Point. Up here, one glance captures both the metropolis and The Island, as well as the shimmering waterway and bridges that connect them. Part of The Breakers’ city club, the restaurant and bar, both opening to the public for dinner and evening drinks, is a supremely civilized place to sip a cocktail as the afternoon transitions to dusk pink.”
“GOOD BITES: Oh, the splendid ooze of a nice burrata is always a good bite. But when this hefty globe of creamy cheese ($19) is served with heirloom tomatoes, thin wedges of watermelon, atop a demure rocket salad, it has fulfilled its indulgent purpose. The watermelon adds a refreshing sweetness to a salad of creamy and bitter notes. Another outstanding bite came to us by way of the Road Trip Chicago menu, pan-toasted, goat cheese-filled pierogies ($14) with charred cipollini, piquillo peppers, artichoke and baby arugula in a lush Dijon Armagnac cream. (This starter is served through the end of August.) We also loved the huge, pan-seared diver scallops ($38) served atop a delicate wild mushroom risotto with French beans and roasted sweet cherry tomatoes in a lobster beurre blanc. And we swooned over the Tres Leches Cake ($7.50, on the Chicago menu this month), a moist – but not drenched – pound cake topped with an insanely delicious toasted coconut crackle, and served with a tart pomegranate sorbet.”
“BEST REASON TO RETURN: The view. That view can make a glass of tap water taste special. At Top of the Point, there’s a whole lot of delicious to pair with the scene outside the windows.”
Special thanks to Liz Balmaseda. We’re delighted you enjoyed your experience!
