Welcome to The Diplomat- Hollywood FL ! Where the brunch at Point Royal is on POINT 😉

Chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s latest Coastal American concept, Point Royal arrives to The Diplomat Hollywood Beach and the 100 million dollar renovations to the hotel property certainly do not go unnoticed.

Point Royal is a lovely restaurant with a fabulous brunch menu. In keeping with Geoffrey’s reputation for producing some of the country’s most relevant restaurants, he created Point Royal exclusively for the Diplomat Beach Resort. A modern take on a seaside restaurant, the indoor-outdoor venue features the property’s only raw bar and a menu featuring the full gamete of Zakarian’s Coastal American cuisine. Complimented by a center bar focused on fresh juice based cocktails and one of the largest wine lists on property.

The center bar boasts a wonderful array of brunch items including the best chicken and biscuits I have ever eaten! I loved the healthy touches such as the Lychee Yogurt with apple- tarragon compote and macadamias, the lovely Sunday Salad and a variety of fresh fruits, charcuterie display with accompanied cheeses and smoked salmon with capers.

Every item I had was delicious, from the spinach and goat cheese omelet made fresh from the omelet station to the slice of tortilla espanola Point Royal’s brunch had be going back for more!

The Hotel Bar is an indoor-outdoor bar highlighting fresh juice based classic cocktails from historic hotel bars around the world and from famous local bartenders in the South Florida area. The menu features drinks including the Singapore Sling (The Raffles Hotel), the Nacional Cocktail (The Hotel Nacional) and the Vieux Carre (The Hotel Monteleone).

In addition to a list of classic sections like the Manhattan and the Dark & Stormy, the bar celebrates cocktails from recognized bartenders in the surrounding area, including the Papa Doble from Julio Cabrera featuring light rum, luxardo maraschino liqueur, fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice and lime juice, and the Toasted Marshmallow Old Fashioned from Elad Zvi made with Bourbon, toasted marshmallow syrup, dash of orange bitters, Dale DeGroff’s Pimento Bitters and garnished with mini toasted marshmallows and orange oil.

All cocktails are prepared with ingredients from the hotel’s ‘juice commissary’, the source for all freshly squeezed juices and house branded ice, which is distributed throughout all food and beverage concepts on property.
