One of the most beautiful rooms in the city has infused its classic seafood menu with a new attitude.. The Scene This hunter-green structure was an elegant place to eat back when seafood meant lobster. The West Palm Beach-reminiscent teak furniture and pastel murals of (among other things) a giant conch will have you sinking in for a leisurely dinner experience. Judging from that fleet of luxury sedans anchored in the parking lot, Charley's back in town.
The Bait A well-chosen wine list encourages conversation during the appetizer course, which still includes the restaurant's celebrated crackers-and-fish pate. Red snapper gets the poaching treatment in coconut milk, and a very Cajun catfish comes with crawfish mousse. But there's still traditional lobster here (and lots of it).
