After much anticipation, celebrated restaurateurs Ed Schmidt, Ozzie Medeiros and executive chef Steven Polowy have teamed together to create one of the most exciting new additions to the local culinary scene in quite awhile.  Located just a block south of The Norton Museum of Art on South Dixie in the Mango Promenade Historic District of West Palm Beach, Table 26 offers global comfort food in a smart-casual, trendy atmosphere.  After feedback from numerous guests and a few first hand experiences, here are a few of the menu items which stand out:  Fried Calamari “pad thai”, toasted peanuts, lime & soy-ginger mayo; roasted beets, toasted hazelnuts, baby spinach, pears & goat cheese; wild mushroom omelette with bistro cut sirloin & petit salad; BBQ Chicken Dinner, corn on the cob, baked beans and cole slaw; and finally the s’mores fudge sundae with homemade marshmallows & graham crackers.  Yummy!  The wine list is also extensive. The atmosphere is vibrant with a bar and a beautiful outside terrace which is covered in case of bad weather. The prices range from moderate to slightly expensive.  The restaurant is open 7 days a week for dinner and will be open for lunch starting this Fall.  Valet parking.  Call 561-855-2660 for reservations (which are definitely needed).

Oh!  I almost forgot to mention. Table 26 is 5 – 6 minutes walking distance from Grandview Gardens!
