Ten Best Suburban Restaurants in Palm Beach County

The restaurants that get the most hype always seem to be those fancy, just-opened joints. You know, the ones stuck right smack in the middle of downtown or maybe that cute little historic district where the hipsters flock. Basically, wherever the nightlife crowd is rowdiest.

But sometimes it's the establishments that force you to venture out into the suburbs -- those hidden gems that require a little extra fuel to get there -- where you find the most fabulous meals that make it worth a trip. Or two.

In Palm Beach County, pretty much everything we know is east of I-95; the downtown strips have it all, from Clematis Street in West Palm Beach to Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. But there is plenty of good eating to be done west of the highway. Sure, these places might be a little harder to get to, but they're worth the drive, every time.

Here are the ten best destination restaurants in suburban Palm Beach County.
