Brunch buffets are always fun, and the new Royal Brunch at Point Royal is no exception. From 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays, guests can enjoy a wide range of brunch favorites for just $45. That’s a steal, especially for a restaurant with such star power — Geoffrey Zakarian — behind it. As you’ll soon see, Point Royal just made Sundays a lot more fun.
When we used to think of Hollywood, Florida, the first thing that came to mind was Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Our idea of the city was centered around one giant casino property; in our heads, nothing else existed besides residences and a few local watering holes and restaurants. Why bother going up?
Boy, were we wrong. There’s a whole lot more to the city than we originally thought. If you’re willing to make the trek, it’s easy to spend a weekend or more with a full schedule of dining experiences and fun attractions. And right in the middle of it all is CIRC Hotel, the first hotel to open in Downtown Hollywood in decades.
When we used to think of Hollywood, great food was one of the last things that came to mind. It wasn’t until we stumbled upon The Diplomat Beach Resort earlier this year that our mentality changed. The sprawling property is a quality dining destination — one that’s home to over a handful of fun restaurants. Want Italian? Craving a burger? In the mood for seafood? There’s everything here.
Monkitail, the resort’s latest addition, further cements the site’s status as a culinary powerhouse. The Japanese gastropub is the brainchild of Philadelphia-based chef and restaurateur Michael Schulson, who’s known for his Asian concepts like Double Knot and Sampan in the Northeast. With Monkitail, Schulson has another hit on his hands.
Since starting the blog, we’ve interviewed many members of the hospitality industry, and one constant among the interviewees has been a profound love for their pets. We thought it would be great to share this love with our readers.
That’s why we launched an ongoing feature called “Wag Wednesday” to showcase industry peeps and their pets. Know someone who wants to be featured? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, we’re featuring Jamie Seyba, Chef at Jamie’s Juice Bar & Kitchen, and his pup, Lucky.
Local foodies have reason to rejoice: Chef Geoffrey Zakarian is back in South Florida. Last month, the celebrity chef opened Point Royal inside the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood. The coastal American restaurant is a modern take on a seaside restaurant, featuring a menu that emphasizes seafood but also includes savory bites like Chef Zakarian’s signature Ugly Burger. No matter what your protein preference, there’s something delicious waiting for you here.
