Restaurants cook up holiday fare for Labor Day
Establishments plan special events and menus for weekend.
Palm Beach restaurants have a few special events planned for the Labor Day weekend.
The Colony will host a brunch today from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. poolside with lawn games and drink specials. The Sunday brunch also includes live jazz.
PB Catch plans to feature kids’ cookout-style fare this weekend at its regular Sunday Family Night, which starts at 5 p.m. and continues through dinner hours with board games and more.
Meanwhile, Labor Day calls for a holiday clam bake dinner at The Chesterfield’s Leopard Lounge & Restaurant and adjacent outdoor Courtyard. The 7 to 9 p.m. event Monday is slated to include live music.
The clam bake starts with seafood chowder, followed by ample platters — one per table — of steamed mussels, clams, shrimp, lobster, potatoes and corn.
The feast is $45 per person.
Wine dinner — Spanish wines are the theme of Café Boulud’s next wine dinner Thursday, and the event also will focus on the classic qualities of wines by “family owned properties” in northern Spain, according to sommelier Imre Papp.
With that in mind,
Papp has carefully selected various Spanish wines for the dinner evening, including a reserve wine by Eladio Piñeiro that will be served at the event’s 6:45 p.m. reception.
For the 7 p.m. dinner, executive chef Rick Mace and head pastry chef Julie Franceschini have created a four-course menu. Dinner courses are to include slow-cooked rainbow trout with chilled serrano-ham consommé, trout roe and pine nuts, and lamb prepared two ways with calabaza squash, puffed grains and sweet garlic.

The wine dinner is $115 per person; advance reservations are a must.
