Celebrating Christmas in Florida

December 1, 2009

Celebrating Christmas in Florida, as the locals know, is certainly different from celebrating it with snow blanketing the ground or Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Fortuitously, the holidays in a warmer climate affords more flexibility in how you celebrate.

There are several ways you can celebrate Christmas in Florida such as:

A Neighborhood Christmas Dinner - here are some ideas and suggestions for you and your neighbors to get together for Christmas

With the warmer weather that Florida enjoys, a neighborhood progressive Christmas dinner is far more doable than in a colder climate.

December 1, 2009

By Gary J. Arzt

If you’re in Palm Beach, and looking for classic French food and service, L’Escalier is the right choice. A very attractive room, classically baroque with plenty of space between the white cloths draped tables.

Located in The Breakers, Palm Beach’s historical, landmark hotel, you have to know that the restaurant will be, as the British say, ‘up market.’ And so it is. It also delivers the best meal in south Florida, and is easily accessible to those living in the four east coast counties (Palm Beach, Broward, Miami Dade, and Monroe).

It provides the kind of dinning, and service, that is not readily available in Florida, or, for that matter, elsewhere. The operative word is elegant! Dishes brought to the table under silver plate domes; soup poured from individual small tureens. Read the rest of this entry »
