At Mark's City Place try dry-aged New York Strip steak with truffled macaroni and cheese.
Mark's City Place
Mark Militello has all the right moves. Some consider him one of the chefs responsible for putting South Florida cuisine on the culinary map.
His fourth restaurant, Mark's City Place, is located in the heart of West Palm Beach's shopping and dining district. The menu combines the best of ingredients, offering choices for every diner's palate, including wood-oven fired pizzas, pastas, fresh seafood, and steaks.
You don't want to miss the sleek sushi bar. Sushi chef Roy Villacrusis takes these delicacies to an unprecedented level. This is more than your average California roll--it's true edible art. Roy rants so passionately about sushi, it's bound to turn non-sushi eaters into lifelong converts.
Try the signature buttermilk fried calamari, but save room for the dry-aged New York strip steak, perfectly marbled for incredible flavor. One bite of the accompanying truffled macaroni and cheese, and you'll know why Mark is a former recipient of the prestigious James Beard award for best chef in the Southeast. 700 South Rosemary Avenue; (561) 514-0770. Appetizers and sushi: $2-$20; entrées: $12-$39.
