Dining at Cascade is perhaps the pinnacle of what Florida's dining scene can offer. Seated at the Biltmore Hotel's courtyard, surrounded by not only sunshine and breezes, but also the glory of that immense pool and all its activity, diners get to enjoy breakfast, lunch and bar bites created by James Beard nominee Chef Philippe Ruiz every day. His French-Caribbean/spa cuisine menu features the expected entrants (omelettes, eggs Benedict, blueberry pancakes), but also some surprises, including delicately battered, spiced rock shrimp with Indian curry and mango sauce ($11), stone crab claws ($30 to $36 on average), grass-fed "churrasco" steak with mashed purple potatoes, and organic vegetarian dishes made without heat, like the most flavorful heirloom tomato soup ($12) you've ever slurped. Can't lift your suntanned, Vilebrequin or Red Carter-covered butt off the lounge chair? No worries; the staff will bring you special selections ranging from a Maine lobster sandwich on foccacia with remoulade ($17) to a grilled veggie wrap ($12) presented so beautifully that you won't feel guilty swallowing a calorie. Stay for a drink at sunset, especially if you like to take advantage of great happy-hour specials, and listen to the sounds of live Brazilian jazz. In case you were wondering, yes, Cascade gets two thumbs up from the pinkies-up set.
