We arrived in Palm Beach yesterday and of course the first thing I did was search for vegan restaurants in the area. Christopher’s Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens came up with great reviews. We set the navigation and headed there for a late post-swim lunch today.
The lunch menu is all raw with tons of nut-based ideas and dehydrated stuff. I have not yet ventured into the dehydrated arena myself so it is a treat to find such creative offerings. I am definitely going to try to make some of their dishes and the next time we visit Palm Beach, we are definitely going back for dinner, when they cook.
For appetizers, we ordered guacamole and homemade red pepper corn chips and this fantastic why-didn’t-I-think-of-it-myself caprese salad. This will be on our table this summer when the tomatoes are ripe.
For our entrees, I ordered the “walnut tuna salad” with capers, tomato, cucumber, apple, and lots of sprouts on toasted 7 grain bread. The bread was fantastic, we ordered extra on the side.
My husband had the famous CK Tacos. Two handmade vegetable tortillas, sweet & spicy walnut taco mix, guacamole, pico de gallo, lettuce, cabbage, cashew cheese, and lime. He ate them up so fast I only had one bite. The walnut taco mix was sweet and tangy, I’m thinking maple syrup and tamari. I don’t know what the dipping sauce was, but there was none left!
For dessert, we spied the case of fantastic chocolate offerings including salted caramel bark, almond butter balls, chocolate mint patties and more. It was hard to decide what to get.
We chose a salted caramel pecan bark and this unbelievable ice cream sundae with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, bananas, chocolate macaroons, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, and crushed walnuts. I ate almost the whole thing myself since my husband and son ran off to explore the green pennies in the fountain. Lucky me!
Overall, this restaurant is fantastic! The service is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. The food is creative, delicious, and gorgeous. The atmosphere is chic but totally relaxed. Next time you are in town, or if you live here already, make plans to visit Christopher’s Kitchen. And tell everyone you know!
