New York residents are moving to Florida, and their restaurants are migrating with them. Lulu’s Café & Cocktails, located in Delray’s Pineapple Grove district, is affiliated with Jackdaw in Manhattan’s East Village and focuses on American comfort food, with an emphasis on clean, organic eating. The brunch menu is offered from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily and begins with classics such as French toast, breakfast burritos, and steak and eggs. Chef Jonathan Petela also presents more unexpected bites in the form of a Buffalo chicken sandwich and pork belly bao buns. The cocktail program relies on fresh juices, quality liquors, and simple presentations; highlights include the Cold Brew Martini (cold brew coffee, Café Borghetti liqueur, and Curaçao) and Frosé (rosé, lemon, strawberry, watermelon, and agave).

Located inside the Hilton West Palm Beach, Galley has broken the mold of hotel restaurants with an ambitious and innovative menu—and the surprises extend to brunch. Executive chef Guillermo Eleicegui blends his Argentine roots with a wide-ranging culinary curiosity, so expect a multicultural experience encompassing dishes such as tuna tataki, beef empanadas, and Wagyu short rib hash browns, along with pizzas and three versions of eggs Benedict. Craft cocktails include the Galley Spicy Maria (house Bloody Mary mix plus tequila infused with jalapeño, cilantro, and lime) and Diamond Eyes (palo santo–rested Espolòn Tequila with lime, black lava salt, and grapefruit). Brunch is offered on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
