Pelican Cafe is a few miles further than we generally travel for dinner unless it's an occasion. But I've decided we need to make our circle larger because this is one of the finest restaurants in Palm Beach County and perhaps beyond. It's not often that a restaurant gets just about everything right. The other night we were celebrating a special day for us and we were greeted by thousands of twinkling lights which somehow welcome before you even enter. I love the people here, they are so warm and welcoming and genuinely want everyone to have a spectacular meal.
I had made a reservation and mentioned where we'd like to sit. It's been a long time since I've seen a card with our name on a table and it's a tradition I have missed. From the outset our server, Jeffery, was so pleasant and considerate with our order and throughout our meal. While it's hard to believe he remembered us from our last visit, he said he did. It was incredibly hard to make a menu choice because the menu offers a range of delicious appetizers, entrees, and sides along with mouth watering specials.
There was hardly a moment that the owner, Mark, wasn't somewhere in the room talking with regulars as well as equally warm and welcoming with us. Seeing I was wrestling a bit with my lamb shank, he offered to take it back to the kitchen to take it off the bone. Just an added touch that made me feel special.
The food is cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. We've only dined here 5 or 6 times, but we've never had anything but an amazing meal. There is nothing ordinary about Pelican Cafe. If you like to get away from the standard fare of a chain, the typical seafood restaurants all over South Florida, or if you long or wish for just a touch of New England like I do, Pelican Cafe is a wonderful choice. I would keep it a secret, but the word's already out.
