PALM BEACH, FL – This March, The Breakers Palm Beach will unveil the newest addition to its dining collection, Henry’s Palm Beach. Located on Royal Poinciana Way, the restaurant will open at Via Flagler by The Breakers, an alfresco plaza that will feature a curated collection of boutiques, eateries and residences.
Named after the resort’s founder, Henry Morrison Flagler, Henry’s Palm Beach will showcase elevated comfort food with character and a hint of nostalgia. The inviting menu of American favorites will encourage guests to share and inspire frequent visits.
Henry’s all-day menu will highlight specialties ranging from raw bar and “handhelds” (sandwiches) to USDA-Prime beef and fresh fish, while daily specials may include classics such as chicken pot pie, beef Wellington and fresh pastas. Among its signature dishes: Pigs in a Pretzel Dough Blanket served with a warm pilsner cheese fondue; a Tavern Twin Patty Burger topped with craft cheddar and a house sauce; Butter Crumb Dover Sole complemented by a side of creamy rice grits and tartar sauce; and a Smoked Salmon Pizze, available during weekend brunch, prepared with tomato, Bermuda onion, lemon and a dill crème fraîche. “The food is familiar, with something unexpected about every dish,” said The Breakers’ Executive Chef - Restaurants, Anthony Sicignano.
In addition, guests can savor traditional and eclectic cocktails, such as Cucumber Mint with Tito’s Vodka, prosecco, cucumber and mint simple; Hurricane, featuring light and dark aged Caribbean rum, Chinola, fresh orange and lime, agave and grenadine; and Negroni, made with Nolet’s Gin, Campari and Carpano Antica Vermouth. A local, artisanal beer selection, as well as an expertly curated wine list, courtesy of The Breakers’ award-winning master sommeliers - Virginia Philip (The Breakers’ Wine Director) and Juan Gomez – will also be available. Equally tempting are Henry’s “Prohibition” non-alcoholic beverages, blending a variety of fresh fruit and mixers.
The restaurant is anticipated to become a coveted neighborhood gathering spot for dining and drinks. “As the newcomer to the island’s social dining scene and The Breakers’ soon-to-be 10th restaurant, Henry’s Palm Beach is inspired by its location on Royal Poinciana Way, known as Palm Beach’s original Main Street,” said Nick Velardo, Vice President Food and Beverage - Restaurants at The Breakers. “Building on that legacy, this approachable culinary concept reflects the same timeless American spirit, where people gather as a community to enjoy a meal and socialize among friends, family and neighbors,” he continued.
For Henry’s 4,200 sq. ft. interior, The Breakers has enlisted longtime collaborator and celebrated hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany, working as design consultant to Dailey Janssen Architects, to create an inviting, casually elegant setting with a lively Palm Beach energy. The playful design and fresh color palette will create an open, dynamic atmosphere throughout the 150-seat restaurant (includes: a 24-seat bar, communal table for up to 14, private dining room for 24, and a semi-private dining area that seats 14). Guests will feel warmly welcomed upon arrival, where a prominent central bar, situated on a base of colored mosaic limestone, will be the commanding focal point. The Bar will feature walnut and metal detailing, plum and gold leather barstools and dropdown bronze shelving. Tiled, end-grain wood floors will anchor the entire room, while table and banquette seating in shades of plum, chartreuse and gold, provide a rich pop of color. Overhead, shaded bronze chandeliers and oversized sconces will illuminate the restaurant and its large-scale, coffered ceiling with a warm, radiant glow. A series of arched, floor-to-ceiling windows, alternating with sophisticated, textured wall coverings, will encircle the restaurant, infusing abundant natural light throughout.
Located at 229 Royal Poinciana Way, Henry’s Palm Beach will be The Breakers’ second off-site restaurant on the island, along with the highly-popular Echo (230A Sunrise Ave.), which features the distinctive cuisines of Asia. Henry’s will open daily (Sunday to Thursday, 11 AM – 10 PM and Friday & Saturday, 11 AM – 11 PM), and will include social hour (Monday to Friday, 3:30 – 5:30 PM) and weekend brunch (11 AM – 3 PM). Reservations are recommended, and upon opening, can be made online at OpenTable or by calling (561) 206-1896.
