Best Table in Town

If you are a daring foodie, chances are you are all about the chef’s table concept, where you enter a restaurant with no preconceived notions and let a chef decide what you’re having for dinner.

Coolinary Cafe - Deviled Eggs

   If you’re going to trust one chef to dictate the menu, let it be Tim Lipman, the gastro-genius behind Palm Beach Gardens’ Coolinary Cafe. It works like this: You and five friends sit at a long table and nosh on house-made pickles, chips and deviled eggs (above) while Lipman and his crew work their magic.
   Five courses later, you will have tasted such creative fare as a before-and-after Scotch egg with house-made chicken sausage (hey, which came first?) or Buffalo-style sweetbreads, poached in buttermilk, lightly fried and glazed with chili.
   What we think: Lipman’s fearless cooking style and his singular focus on fresh, real food puts the “cool” in Coolinary.

He and his team put out the ultimate comfort food—fresh, often locally sourced and heirloom ingredients prepared in an honest, straightforward style that has won the restaurant (and its chef) numerous accolades.
