Glass Magazine: Glass discovers the sophisticated elegance of The Palm Beaches, Florida
I’ve arrived in The Palm Beaches, where an aura of bygone sophistication still hangs in the warm air. This fashionable Floridian destination has been a playground for the rich and famous for many years, where a luxurious and colourful vibe permeates every paving stone (difficult to capture on Instagram). A 90-minute drive from Miami Airport, this golden enclave comprises 47 miles of beaches, where sunny afternoons melt into balmy nights.
I take a short drive two the Royal Poinciana Plaza, where I have booked a table for lunch at Sant Ambroeus. The tagliatelle alla bolognese and vitello tonnato live up to their reputation in this lively new branch of the notable Milanese restaurant, where Italian staff converse in their native language while extending their inimitable brand of hospitality. Afterwards, I continue my retail therapy exploring the Plaza’s generous courtyard, surrounded by eclectic boutiques majoring in pastel-coloured clothing and homeware which reflect the local laid-back yet lavish lifestyle.
