When Michelle Bernstein left the Omphoy restaurant back in January, the boutique Palm Beach resort was left without a fine-dining establishment -- at the height of the busy and lucrative tourist season.
The Omphoy resort has fixed that problem with the recent opening of Malcolm's. The seaside restaurant has named Michael Wurster as executive chef. Wurster, a CIA graduate, worked under Sottha Kuhn at Le Cirque and was named by Esquire magazine's John Mariani as "a chef I will be watching closely."
Malcolm's features a five-course tasting menu ($60) and a nine-course
tasting menu ($105), as well as a host of à la carte items like lamb
loin with artichoke,
sauce ($38); swordfish with chickpea, tomato, mushroom, and spinach
emulsion ($29); foie gras with truffle and strawberry ($19); and sea
urchin custard ($16).
The restaurant's extensive 18-page wine list returns, featuring sommelier wine flights with dinner for $125.
Malcolm's is open for dinner nightly.
