New Restaurant Roundup: Philippe Chow in Lauderdale, the Water Bar, a Whole (New) Enchilada, and the Poolside Bar
The Water Bar & Grill will be reborn in Palm Beach Gardens' Oakwood Grill space at 4610 PGA Blvd. Mahogany and stone décor is abandoned for stainless steel, glass, and more modern furnishings. John Spoto remains owner and GM of this space, a menu change drives the seafood-focused concept that incorporates a raw bar ($1.50 to $68 for the seafood tower), wood-roasted and steamed shellfish ($10 to $36 for the shellfish platter), soups and salads ($5 to $10), flatbreads ($8.50 to $12), fish sandwiches ($15 to $20), and entrées ($17 to $30). The restaurant is shooting for an early-November opening.
