Ten Best Suburban Restaurants in Palm Beach County

Take a trip to West Palm Beach's kitchen and meet husband-and-wife team Matthew and Aliza Byrne.
The restaurants that get the most hype always seem to be those fancy, just-opened joints. You know, the ones stuck right smack in the middle of downtown or maybe that cute little historic district where the hipsters flock. Basically, wherever the nightlife crowd is rowdiest.

But sometimes it's the establishments that force you to venture out into the suburbs -- those hidden gems that require a little extra fuel to get there -- where you find the most fabulous meals that make it worth a trip. Or two.

In Palm Beach County, pretty much everything we know is east of I-95; the downtown strips have it all, from Clematis Street in West Palm Beach to Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. But there is plenty of good eating to be done west of the highway. Sure, these places might be a little harder to get to, but they're worth the drive, every time.

Here are the ten best destination restaurants in suburban Palm Beach County.

The sushi bomb from Kontiki.
10. Kontiki
Located in the heart of Wellington, this restaurant has a unique concept and menu: Asian tapas. From small, sharing-sized plates to entrée-style dishes and a list of specialty sushi and hand rolls, Kontiki has it covered. Plus, it's the best place to be at the height of polo season, when the main dining room gets converted into a dance floor for late-night partying. Despite its remote location, the creative rolls served in a fun, funky atmosphere are what set this place apart from all the others. The Kontiki sushi bomb is a highlight here, a tempera-style roll stuffed with tuna, salmon, white fish, avocado, asparagus, scallion, sesame, and masago that is deep-fried and topped with the house spicy bomb sauce. It comes in a lobster version too, if you're feeling extra fancy.

9. Okeechobee Steakhouse
It may not look like much, and it might not be in the most beautiful building -- and it's not even located in an easy-to-access area. But the Okeechobee Steakhouse has proven it can stand the test of time with its classic steakhouse menu. That's over 60 years as a Palm Beach staple, a place that's seen more birthday celebrations and anniversary dinners than you can count. A '70s-style lounge with dark wood interior is made complete with bartenders that always remember everyone's drink, and pour them righteously. Thick, char-grilled steaks are the top pick here; order any number of classic cuts by weight. Sides are traditional: creamed spinach, baked potatoes as big as your head, and the other staples of the genre. The best part of the meal: The salad, bread, and cheese bar. There's a great wine list, but this is the type of place you'll want to order a martini with your steak. Prices aren't cheap, but for the portions are good enough that almost everyone leaves with a doggie bag.

I have never heard anyone use Guanbanas and best restaurant  in the same sentence except for atmosphere. Hog Snapper's menu is all over the place and is just mediocre. Who puts imitation krab meat on a hog snapper filet and then real lump crab on tilapia? WTF?


Coolinary should be #1.I have been there and to Leftovers many many times. Tacos al Carbon is very worthy as well.
