After years of listening to clients’ pleas for a Palm Beach restaurant, celebrity chef Todd English has returned with a new namesake eatery, Todd’s by Todd English. The restaurant is a partnership with EmKo owner and artist Leo Koel and is situated in the building’s former Jereve space—although anyone who dined at Jereve would hardly recognize Todd’s. Gone are the checkered walls, red booths, and disjointed market and café. Instead a swanky bar-lounge area, anchored by a massive silver feline sculpture by Koel, greets guests.
In the dining room, whitewashed finishes, sumptuous velvet seating, ample palm fronds, and candlelight exude a sexy Miami–meets–Palm Beach atmosphere. When he’s not globetrotting to visit his restaurants around the world, English can be found in the kitchen at Todd’s, where he puts out crowd-pleasers like fig and prosciutto flatbread, handmade pasta, and Alaskan king crab toasts topped with generous amounts of caviar, as well as his famous bread pudding.
