THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED The Dining Room at Little Palm Island Restaurant Review

: A dreamy, romantic locale (under 16 not permitted), the restaurant at the secluded Little Palm Island Resort & Spa defines a class of its own. The remote natural surroundings (royal palms, wild Key deer, lush tropical foliage) are a breathtaking backdrop for opulent outdoor dining. Located three miles offshore and accessible only by boat (reservations required), the dining room offers regional cuisine. Explore the far reaches of good taste in starters like Hudson Valley foie gras with jalapeño pesto and sherry reduction, or Key West pink shrimp. Linger with the setting sun and the rising moon over the ocean while enjoying entrées such as butter-poached Maine lobster, mac ‘n’ cheese and fresh truffle, or braised beef short rib with ancho and guajillo chile jus. (Note: The kitchen is currently in between chefs.) Wines and cocktails are notable as one would expect, and the service, while Island-style friendly (and paced), is attentive. Ask to dine at a private table perched on the edge of the beach. If possible, plan to spend the night.
