Just as the season starts to cool down, Palm Beach heats up. From Sunday brunch buffets to performances at the Palm Beach Symphony, here’s everything you need to pencil in this season.
Blackbird Modern Asian
Choose from a mouthwatering selection of seafood, dim sum, old-school Chinese and so much more.
Palm Beach’s newest eatery, Blackbird Modern Asian, brings an innovative interpretation of pan-Asian fare to the table. Inside, the 5,500-square-foot space comes alive with 150 seats and banquets, three dining venues and two vibe-led cocktail bars. On the menu? Dim sum favorites and Chinatown-style staples are aplenty, led by executive chef Tim Nickey. Indulge in crowd favorites like the Shanghai soup dumplings and Australian wagyu tomahawk, or stick to its signature dish—the fork-tender Sichuan ribs encased in a smoke-infused glass dome that is removed tableside. Whatever you choose, don’t forget to pair it with the vast libations menu, boasting cutting-edge cocktails, fine wines and an impressive collection of Japanese sakes. 1511 N.

Palm Beach Symphony
Palm Beach Symphony offers an array of community outreach programs and more.
Not only does the Palm Beach Symphony have an impressive lineup of concerts on the horizon, but also a surplus of community outreach workshops and programs for students and musicians alike. This past year, the symphony presented 70 community programs and performances with over 57 hours of free concerts in addition to music residencies, coaching sessions and more. “The musicians really enjoyed being back in the classroom working directly with students this year, while the hybrid remote models we employed during the pandemic allowed us to reach more students than ever before, through virtual as well as in-person programs,” says Director of Artistic Operations Olga M. Vazquez. Upcoming performances range from acclaimed violinist Sarah Chang to Handel’s “Messiah” and everything in between. 400 Hibiscus St., #100, West Palm Beach, 561.281.0145
R/V ANGARI in calm seas
Dedicated to creating a global community around marine and environmental sciences, the ANGARI Foundation uses innovative technology, film and other media to raise awareness and strengthen science education. And now, a refitted 65-foot luxury yacht turned research vessel has been added to the lineup. Sisters Angela and Kari Rosenberg—ANGARI’s president and vice president of production—purchased and revamped the boat with a dive center for scuba research, underwater lights and cameras, new electronics, a 1,500-pound capacity crane and more. Small enough to maneuver close to shore for shallowwater research experiments, R/V ANGARI helps the organization support scientists, educators and filmmakers with an affordable platform to conduct research along the coast of Palm Beach and beyond.
