Mimi’s Out of the Kitchen

Renato's Palm Beach

It’s too hot to cook and Mimi wants out of the kitchen! First up is Mimi’s favorite Palm Beach restaurant so far: Renato’s. This fancy but friendly Worth Avenue gem has a lovely open air atmosphere in season and an elegant intimacy in the off season. The menu has great seasonal offerings as well as established dishes.

Since Mademoiselle is blazing her own epicurean trail in Paris this summer, the MDC and Mimi took the boys and our friends to experience both Renato’s on Worth and their more casual sister restaurant, Al Fresco. Al Fresco not only makes delicious pizza, but also serves breakfast!

Although Mimi says you cannot go wrong with any dish at Renato’s she recommends her favorites, the Insalata Di Barbabietole (beet and goat cheese salad), the Pappardelle Con Vitello e Funghi (pappardelle pasta, mushrooms and veal) and of course, the tiramisu. The MDC likes the Risotto all’Aragosta (saffron risotto and shellfish), but ends up eating what’s left of the truffled papperdale. Our friend’s spinach ravioli was rich and delicious down to the last bite. Renato’s has a very extensive wine and cocktails list. The Maitre’d and staff are friendly and service-oriented. Mimi highly recommends it when you find yourself in Palm Beach. In season or not, get reservations as the good places are always busy!
