Your ripped jeans and potty mouth have always made you feel a bit out of place at the über-elegant Biltmore Hotel. With lush tropical gardens and wedding-worthy décor, this suburban oasis even has a tea bar a place where you drink a cuppa tea with your pinky in the air. And forget about stirring your Earl Grey with your finger they use spoons there. Palme DOr, the resorts signature restaurant, employs more of the same sophistication, serving French cuisine and an award-winning wine list within a dining room that oozes classic savoir-faire. Zagat and Fodors sing the places praises, and Miami New Times even named it Best French Restaurant in 2006. What more would you expect from an establishment that shares a name with the Cannes Film Festivals highest honor?
If you havent had the pleasure of eating din-din while sitting in one of the restaurants plush leather chairs, let A Toast to Tuesdays be your excuse. Each week, Palme DOrs 260 wine variations are offered at 50 percent off with the purchase of dinner. Allow sommelier Sebastien Verrier to pair your Merlot with some meat, or couple your Chardonnay with chocolate. Whatever you do, wear those ripped jeans we dare you.
