If it ain’t local, Florida Cookery doesn’t want it. The signature restaurant at the James Royal Palm hotel has a passion for fresh, locally sourced produce, meat and seafood, as demonstrated by Kris Wessel’s impressive menu, which includes old-school favorites such as a 65-year-old conch chowder recipe and cast iron-cooked Sunshine State frogs’ legs. Local culinary hero Lee Brian Schrager, founder of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, even has a burger named after him, made with Vidalia onions and your choice of fontina, white cheddar, bleu or goat’s cheese.
