Telescopes Â for Star Gazing Compliment Temple OrangeÂ’s Italian Comfort Cuisine, While Palm Â BeachÂ’s only Oceanfront Dining, Breeze, Serves up Gourmet Burgers
The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach introduces new menus at both signature restaurants, now offering traditional Italian comfort food at the indoor/outdoor restaurant Temple Orange, offset by the casual fare and gourmet burgers at Breeze, Palm Â BeachÂ’s only oceanfront dining.
Under the supervision of the Â resortÂ’s acclaimed Executive Chef Ryan Artim, Temple OrangeÂ’s new menu focuses on Â authentic Italian cuisine, featuring fresh pastas and risottos, thin crust Â flat breads and a host of delectable dolci options. Â Inspiration for Â the dishes comes from both Southern and Northern Italy, and seasonal specialties Â featuring local produce and fresh catches will rotate Â regularly.
As 2009 marks the Â 400th anniversary of Italian astronomer GalileoÂ’s invention of Â the telescope, Temple OrangeÂ’s outdoor terrace will feature large Â telescopes, further enticing the guestsÂ’ senses and offering extraordinary Â star gazing over Palm BeachÂ’s glistening stretch of the Atlantic. Â Telescopes staged throughout the terrace add a touch of nebulous Â entertainment to a sparkly evening dinner or dessert. Â Temple Orange will soon introduce regular Â star-gazing nights hosted by a local astronomer, offering a guided lesson on understanding the celestial objects above.
The oceanfront burger bistro, Breeze, offers another distinct dining experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Â Beach. Â Serving up casual fare of gourmet Â burgers, sandwiches, salads and more in a relaxed and cozy ambiance, Breeze offers exclusive seating for guests to marvel in the majestic views Â and breathe in the crisp ocean air with sand in between their toes. Â Illuminated by tiki torches, this oceanfront enclave is Palm BeachÂ’s barefoot Â elegance at its best.Â
Â“The new menu selections at Â both Temple Orange and Breeze compliment the natural Â surroundings of the resort Â– the warm evenings under the stars, cool ocean Â breezes and spectacular views,Â” said Bradley Cance, general manager, The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach. Â“Following the 2007 transformation of the Â entire property, the restaurants have received very positive feedback from Â visitors and locals. ChefÂ’s inventive menus and the restaurantÂ’s Â experiential components raise the bar on typical resort Â dining.Â”
In addition to these new Â restaurant options, Stir Â Bar and the Terrace offer guests a lively gathering place to Â enjoy specialty cocktails and a light bite menu. Afternoon tea is Â served, as Stir offers a comfortable atmosphere to relax and take in ocean Â views near the main lobby. Â The Terrace provides cozy outdoor seating Â with easy access just steps from the beach and resort pool. By Â night, experience the transformation as both spaces become a center of Â activity at the resort, where guests enjoy their favorite libations and Â meet in a see and be seen setting at the inviting outdoor fire pit. Â For a bit of privacy, discover one of Stir BarÂ’s quiet niches or an Â oceanfront cabana for a full dinner under the Â stars.
