Din­ing al­fresco, in style

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - BARS & CLUBS - By Talia J. Me­d­ina

Anew out­door eatery has joined the restau­rants at the PGA Na­tional Re­sort and Spa in Palm Beach Gar­dens.

iDeck is si­t­u­ated above a man­i­cured golf course and pool pic­turesque enough for a wed­ding. The ter­race seats 150 guests be­tween the high-top ta­bles and the lounge sec­tion­als. At night, over­sized lamps il­lu­mi­nate the space while a fire pit keeps guests warm and re­laxed.

iDeck serves the same Amer­i­can dishes as PGA’s Iron­wood Steak and Seafood restau­rant but has the added ben­e­fit of bar bites and cock­tails from PGA’s iBar.

En­trée items in­cludes diver scal­lops ($35), Berk­shire twin pork chops ($48) and At­lantic salmon ($32).

One of the most un­usual menu items is on the cock­tail list: the PGA Gar­den Bloom ($16).

What makes this bev­er­age spe­cial, aside from the sweet fla­vor com­bi­na­tion of Ab­so­lut pear vodka and Sau­vi­gnon Blanc, is the gar­nish. The ed­i­ble Buzz But­ton flower top­ping makes your mouth tin­gle like Pop Rocks. If you try the drink be­fore bit­ing the flower and then af­ter, you’ll no­tice a dif­fer­ence. It’s like crank­ing up the fla­vor vol­ume.

iDeck is at the PGA Na­tional Re­sort and Spa, 400 Av­enue of the Cham­pi­ons, Palm Beach Gar­dens. Hours of op­er­a­tion are Sun­days through Thurs­days from 11 a.m.-1 a.m. and Fri­days and Satur­days from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Food is served un­til 11:30 p.m. For more, visit PGARe­sort.com or call 800-863-2819
