The James Royal Palm Will Serve Florida On a Plate
We love the look of the lobby and, for the most part, the rooms, too. Now, let's take a sneak peek at the new restaurants that will open at The James Royal Palm.
These images from the James Hotels website don't specify which space is which, but we know that there'll be at least two restos to check out--the first being the signature one for the hotel, Florida Cookery.
Like the name suggests, it will serve up "hyper-regional Florida fare" and be helmed by local chef Kris Wessel. If his low-key cool Red Light Little River over on Biscayne Boulevard is any indication, this place is going to make quite a splash. (Red Light is one of the few amazing restaurants in Miami that doesn't give you sticker shock.)
The second restaurant for the James Royal Palm will be CATCH, which you may know from its NYC outpost. Think "globally influenced seafood."
Then, there'll be food available from the hotel's poolside bar and cabanas, along with a lobby lounge and coffee bar.
All sounds promising, and Miami is always in need of exciting new places to eat and drink.
Can't wait until October when the James opens its doors? If you're in Miami during August and September, check out Miami Spice, a 'restaurant week' that runs for two months. It's one of our favorite ways to check out the beach's and the city's hottest hotels.
