A newly opened addition to the Player's Club restaurant, the Bistro at Player's is a casual, French-inspired destination helmed by chef Charles Campbell. Continental cuisine accented with American flavors graces the menu, starting with an appetizer of country duck pâté served with a celery root and apple salad designed to offset the poultry’s richness ($8). Fete aquatic abundance with the shrimp provençale linguine accompanied by a savory trio of tomatoes, garlic, and olives ($18) or the sea-scallop-truffle risotto ($20) infused with enough Italian essence to make a Tuscan expatriate cry tears of marinara.
Featured on WSVN's Style File, Crepeteria adds a touch of American flair to classic French cuisine with an eclectic menu of sweet and savory crêpes filled with fresh fruits, deli meats, or vegetables. Start mornings off right with the breakfast special, a crêpe-wrapped mélange of ham or bacon, egg, and melted swiss, or swap it for a sweet beginning by wrapping the wafer-thin pancake around vanilla ice cream or a bowl of cereal. The crêpe craftsmen also fold the delicate dough around an assortment of customer-chosen toppings, such as peanut butter and jelly, or sliced apples, raw honey, and melted brie, all of which may be washed down with fresh cups of hand-roasted, small batch Savannah's PERC coffee.
Fish have to fly in order to reach Bistro. Fresh from Europe, the Dover sole arrives ready for chefs to pan sear, fillet, and artfully garnish with almond potato cakes and asparagus tips. This dish spotlights one of the more literal examples of European influence on the menu, but more subtle influences, according to a 2004 review in the Palm Beach Post, consist of "ingredients you may have at home prepared perfectly in a way you'd never contemplate." The feature emphasizes the "gentle touch" of the chef, whose expertise ensures that the lobster tails from Maine leave the broiler at exactly the right moment.
The same attention to detail has stocked the Zagat-rated restaurant’s expansive wine cellar. Countries such as France, Germany, Italy, and Argentina contribute libations to the list, which pairs robust glasses with entrees to ensure that the flavors of the veal escalope or beef Wellington pop appropriately. A sunny, canary-yellow dining room frames these flavors, gracing eyes with photographs, pressed-tin ceilings, and lamp-clad chandeliers. Outside, a brick patio takes shelter under a pinstripe awning, warming cool nights with space heaters and accompanying meals with the gurgles of a shallow pond and the haunting songs of the abandoned reflections therein.
Contemporary and classical styles mingle across Gazebo Cafe’s menu of shareable plates and French-influenced entrees, including duck-liver pâté, balsamic confit, and roasted rack of lamb. The meshing of new and old also surfaces in the dining room, which elegantly sports sleek, cobalt blue chandeliers and antique chinaware. Floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate servers as they float from table to table, pouring wines from a list of more than 200 bottles and training silverware to perform intricate song-and-dance routines.
