PALM BEACH, FL – Since its opening in 2000, Echo has become one of the hottest destinations for dining in Palm Beach. The restaurant’s allure remains as strong as ever, blending bold flavors and exoticism in a decidedly urban space. In this contemporary setting, diners enjoy a one-of-kind, culinary and cultural experience, as they explore the distinctive flavors of Asia.
Offering an authentic dining experience, Echo’s wide ranging menu presents diners with distinct specialties that spotlight aromatic and flavorful specialties from China, Thailand, Japan, Korea and Vietnam. The culinary traditions of each nation are celebrated and respected. Diners are free to sample dishes from various cultures, secure in the knowledge that each creation remains true to its own distinct heritage.
Located just a few blocks from The Breakers in the heart of Palm Beach, the Echo journey begins at the moment of arrival, as one enters the terrace area of the restaurant’s entrance – an ideal setting for end-of-day and evening cocktails, or appetizers and dinner. For a more intimate outdoor dining experience, guests can enjoy the atmosphere of Echo’s private, fire-lit garden.
Upon entering, one is greeted by the buzz at the Dragonfly Lounge, a sleek sexy space accented by a serpentine bar. Guests may enjoy an array of creative cocktails, fine sake, and a selection of domestic and imported beers (including popular Asian labels), or choose from an impressive wine list featuring appealing selections from top boutique wineries. The carefully curated wine list, devised by The Breakers’ wine director Virginia Philip, one of the nation’s leading Master Sommeliers, complements Echo’s bold Asian flavors.
Once seated, Echo’s creative menu presents diner with selections divided into categories that correspond to the Five Elements: Wind (small plates to begin the journey); Fire (creations from the wok); Water (seafood and shellfish); Earth (meat, game, and poultry); and Flavor (desserts and sweets).
There are numerous signature specialties on the restaurant’s wide-ranging menu, from Seared Ginger Beef and Thai Roast Duck, to the Crispy Whole Snapper. Also in the category of most tempting are Echo’s famed Sushi and Sashimi; several talented chefs are always hard at work in full view of diners at an exhibition sushi bar, providing an entertaining display of their talents.
Many Asian restaurants treat dessert as an afterthought, but not so at Echo. Diners can enjoy a fabulous finale to their meal, indulging in lavish creations such as the spectacular Echo Dessert Sampler (featuring Molten Chocolate Lava Cake, New York Style Cheesecake, Fortune Cookies, and White Chocolate Banana Spring Rolls) or the popular Soufflé of the Day.
