The great culinary migration: Revered restaurateurs and culinary luminaries rush to open in downtown West Palm Beach

Related Southeast brings first Felicé outside of New York, only expansion for Harry’s and Adrienne’s, and first Lettuce Entertain You restaurants in West Palm Beach.

West Palm Beach has transformed into a world-class destination attracting the most established and esteemed chefs. At the forefront sits Related Southeast. Today, the developer announces six new dining concepts bringing these top chefs' culinary prowess to the "Wall Street South" including Harry’s, the celebrated Wall Street institution for half of a century, as well as sister Italian pizzeria Adrienne’s Pizzabar; Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants, which will open its first restaurant in West Palm Beach with RPM Italian; Felice under the SA Hospitality Group opening their first location outside of New York; Estiatorio Milos, one of the world's finest Mediterranean seafood restaurants by acclaimed chef Costas Spiliadis; and Tacombi, the neighborhood taqueria whose mission is to connect people to Mexico through exceptional hospitality.

“As the neighborhood evolves into a dynamic destination where there’s as much of a demand for power lunches as weekend family brunches, we could not be more pleased with the newest wave of announcements. Downtown West Palm Beach visitors and residents will soon have new locales to pick up morning coffee and sweets, grab a healthy and quick lunch and end with a top-quality steak dinner. Adding more than 42,000 square feet of new dining space and booming with talent from established restaurateurs, these forthcoming openings signal a bright future for the neighborhood’s culinary scene,” says Gopal Rajegowda, partner, Related Southeast.

Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants will open its first restaurant in West Palm Beach with RPM Italian situated on the first floor of Phillips Point. The modern Italian restaurant will focus on handmade pastas, steaks and fresh seafood. This upcoming expansion marks the fourth location of RPM Italian and will be the seventh in the RPM brand of restaurants from R.J., Jerrod and Molly Melman and partners, Bill and Giuliana Rancic. The space will be designed by the award-winning Rockwell Group, and the restaurant will feature expansive indoor outdoor dining options including an 8,000-square-foot outdoor terrace, a lively outdoor bar and lounge and waterfront views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Island of Palm Beach.

• With New York restaurants migrating south and accelerating the rise of Florida’s culinary scene, one of the most prestigious restaurateurs in Manhattan will be making its West Palm Beach debut. Anchoring the newly opened 360 Rosemary Class-A office, iconic New York City dining institutions Harry’s and sister pizzeria, Adrienne’s Pizzabar, will debut in 2022. As the only outposts of Manhattan’s praised restaurants, the openings of both establishments are set to bolster an energy reminiscent of New York’s Financial District filled with power lunches, business meetings, after-work happy hours and weekend family brunches. The space will bring Harry’s staple dishes and whiskey lockers as well as old-fashioned square pizzas from Stone Street to the thriving downtown West Palm Beach district. Sharing the combined 10,000 square foot space and working in tandem, diners will be able to mix and mingle between the two restaurants. 360 Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach.

Estiatorio Milos, with a commitment to the freshest, most flavorful fish flown in daily from the Greek islands, will be the culinary anchor at One Flagler upon opening in 2023. Helmed by acclaimed chef Costas Spiliadis, the restaurant's indoor and outdoor, airy and elegant setting is reminiscent of the Greek islands. 154 Lakeview Ave., West Palm Beach.

Felice originally opened in New York City in 2007 by SA Hospitality Group partner, Jacopo Giustiniani and will soon serve Tuscan-inspired cuisine in downtown West Palm Beach’s 360 Rosemary situated steps from The Square. This marks Felice’s first location outside of New York and is anticipated to open later this year.

Tacombi was founded in 2006 as a taco stand on the beach in Mexico. The neighborhood taquerias are limited-service restaurants that offer tacos, ice-cold beer, cocktails and freshly squeezed juices in unexpected, lively settings. Tacombi will open in 2023 at 575 Rosemary, a state-of-the-art luxury residential building in the heart of The Square.

“We are thrilled to be working with Related Companies to open RPM Italian and to be part of their ongoing plan to develop West Palm Beach,” says R.J. Melman, president, Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants. “Related has a long history of being great developers and visionaries and we look forward to partnering with them for the first time on this project and more to come.”

The latest additions to Related Southeast’s West Palm Beach dining collection join an esteemed group of more than 25 restaurants and food concepts by industry leaders, renowned chefs and restaurateur who are paving the way for the future of dining in downtown West Palm Beach.
