Sant Ambroeus Palm Beach Will Feature Italian Cuisine With Floridian Influences, Plus A Homemade Dessert Cart
A notable New York eatery is about to open in Palm Beach.
Sant Ambroeus Palm Beach, an Italian restaurant reflecting the culture and cuisine of Milan, is set to open for dinner on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 6 p.m. The eatery is located within the iconic Royal Poinciana Plaza, which recently underwent a renovation to transform it into a top retail destination.
This will be the group's first restaurant outside of the New York area, but the owners expect it to be an ideal fit.
“We find that many of our Sant Ambroeus clients spend a great deal of time in Palm Beach, and we are thrilled to bring our vision of Italian excellence to the community,” Gherardo Guarducci, partner at SA Hospitality Group, said in a statement.
The Palm Beach menu will feature plenty of Sant Ambroeus favorites—including caprese, tagliatelle alla bolognese, and risotto—while also incorporating new items, particularly seafood dishes, inspired by Florida's freshest ingredients.
“The menu will focus on seafood and will incorporate local citruses and herbs to accentuate the fresh, luminous surroundings that encompass Palm Beach. Colorful salads with texture, grains and fruits will highlight the simplicity of the local produce,” executive chef Marco Barbisotti said in a statement.
The restaurant will also offer seasonal cocktails, digestifs, and fine Italian wines, as well as a dessert cart on display in the main dining room, featuring homemade cakes, pies, tiramisu, and Napoleon-style, layered cream pastries.
In addition to fine dining, Sant Ambroeus will have a cocktail bar with café tables, a separate coffee bar, and gelateria, with the 174-seat restaurant's design reflecting that of the 1950s gran caffés of Italy.
Sant Ambroeus will serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner and will be open Sunday and Monday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
