Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival Grand Tasting #PBFWF

I’ve smothered you with so many descriptions of food and wine tastings over the past two years that I’m sure it gets boring. Wait…no…how could food and wine ever be boring?! Pretend I didn’t say that. What I meant was, you’re probably just like…okay, another tasting, what could be different about this one? But I promise you, the caliber of restaurants at the Palm Beach Food and Wine Grand Tasting was incredible. There was so much variety, so many different types of restaurants, and the location was vastly different from any other that I’ve been to. 150 Worth is like a mecca of high-end retail shops and top-rated restaurants. It’s outdoors, but doesn’t really feel that way. It’s hard to explain exactly how attractive an area it is, so you really just have to go see it for yourself.
