Sinclairs Ocean Grill has helped plant Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa’s flag firmly in the ground as one of Palm Beach County’s best dining establishments. Not only is it the sole restaurant in town that affords a view of the ocean, but it boasts a prized wine list, signature handcrafted cocktails, and elegant surf and turf menu made from Florida’s seasonal ingredients. But it’s also not the only place to get your eat on at this Jupiter resort. In fact, here are three ways to do dinner differently during a stay.
Upscale Comfort Food at The Sandbar
The tiki bar gets an elegant upgrade in the resort’s poolside Sandbar restaurant: Instead of wooden posts supporting a thatched-roof bar, this version features stacked stone pillars, a shingled peaked roof, and a sleek concrete bar top. Settle into one of the 16 chairs surrounded by blazing tiki torches and order from the menu boasting artisan cheese and charcuterie, modern greens, and New York strip steak. We suggest the Santorini chicken, starring roasted tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, portobello mushroom, baby arugula, and kalamata tapenade over a hearty slice of grilled herb focaccia, but not before first saving the signature pineapple and raspberry-flavored Sunset Lemonade, starring New Amsterdam Vodka.
Fresh Florida Seafood at Sinclairs Ocean Grill
With dishes that focus on Florida’s abundance of fresh ingredients and seafood, the resort’s signature restaurant, Sinclairs Ocean Grill, has built a solid reputation as one of Jupiter’s best restaurants – not to mention, it’s the only one with an oceanfront view. Take a seat on the outdoor terrace and dig into a wide variety of Florida-inspired food, specifically the popular cedar plank salmon served with a sweet potato and red lentil pâté, roasted brussels sprouts, and basil-beurre blanc. As for your accompanying drink of choice: Go for a glass of wine from the restaurant’s recently updated reserve list, either the pinot from Sonoma’s J Vineyards or the chardonnay from Napa’s Stag’s Leap Cellars. Featuring a Coravin wine system, which allows staff to pour wine without removing the cork from the bottle, diners can now enjoy all vintages by the glass instead of bottle.
Handhelds & Pizza for a Picnic on the Beach
No need to pack and lug your evening picnic – but maybe bring a blanket to spread? – to the resort’s recently nourished 1,000-foot beach. Serviced by the wait staff from The Sandbar, your meal can be brought to you. We suggest either the flame-grilled angus beef burger or grilled chicken pizza (pine nut pesto topped with fresh mozzarella, asiago cheese, cherry tomatoes, and baby spinach) paired with your choice of an Opal specialty beer, made exclusively for Opal properties (you have your pick of the Lighthouse Tangerine Wheat or the Opal IPA). Or, for those looking for something fancier, try the Strawberry Mo-Tito cocktail. Made with muddled strawberries, limes, mint and basil, Tito’s vodka, and elderflower liqueur, it does double duty as a drink and dessert.
**Please note, due to fluctuating guest capacity restrictions, not all these food items are available seven days a week.
