Upon setting foot in Palm Beach, your attention is immediately captured by a zesty Socialite cocktail, delectable Dolce & Gabbana pasta, and designer meatloaf wrapped in bacon featured on the menu at one of the trendiest eateries in the city.

Similar to numerous recent arrivals from New York, Swifty’s has now established its presence in Florida, but the lavish restaurant made a wise decision to relocate back in 2019 when it first launched at the elegant Colony Hotel.

A renowned fixture in New York’s Upper East Side, Swifty’s drew a continuous stream of A-list celebrities from Frank Sinatra to John Lennon who remained devoted over the years. Following the abrupt closure of the New York branch in 2016, enthusiasts of the upscale venue known for its exclusive club-like ambiance had to patiently await its Florida comeback three years later.

Ever since, the cherished original concept by founder Robert Caravaggi has been warmly welcomed as a delightful establishment on the island. The revamped concept now stands prominently adjacent to the pool at the luxurious hotel referred to as the “Pink Paradise,” mere steps away from the upscale Worth Avenue.

Recently, the 89-room boutique hotel introduced a complete redesign of its guest rooms to mark its 75th anniversary. Notably, the elegantly crafted de Gournay murals positioned near the elevators on each floor stand out as a striking feature.

The hotel has also recently announced various collaborations in art, wellness, fashion, and design to commemorate its anniversary. Until March, sophisticated shoppers have the opportunity to explore Dolce & Gabbana’s premier Palm Beach retail establishment in the hotel’s shopping space, The Colony Edit. Showcasing womenswear from the latest Resort and Spring Collections, the boutique additionally presents premium collections of menswear, jewelry, children’s items, and home decor.

The nearby Swifty’s also pays homage to the Italian designer with a specialty pasta named after the luxury fashion brand. Providing refined indoor and stylish outdoor dining selections, we believe that some of the finest tables can be experienced by the poolside beneath the charming hanging garden.

Former New Yorkers will be delighted to discover that beloved favorites such as the Billionaire’s Bacon and Meatloaf, as well as Murray’s New York Chicken Paillard, are still featured on the menu here. An assortment of “Table Snacks” comprises an array of options including chilled farm vegetable crudité with white bean hummus, Parmesan cheese scones with strawberry and truffle preserves, their signature cheese and charcuterie platter for two, and crushed avocado with fresh salsa served with tortilla chips.

The raw bar selection boasts an impressive variety of fresh Florida stone crab claws, East Coast oysters, and smoked salmon. For a truly indulgent experience, you can partake in Polish Siberian, Amber Osetra, and American Beluga caviar offerings accompanied by traditional garnishes.

We began our culinary journey with a stunning order of poached colossal shrimp (and yes, they truly were colossal) served alongside a side of zesty cocktail sauce and fresh lemon.

Our server, Patty, recommended that we sample one of their most popular appetizers – chickpea, jalapeno, and cilantro fritters – and we were pleased we took her advice. Six crispy fritters arrived artfully presented on a bed of tahini dressing, adorned with a flavorful carrot apricot puree and sesame seeds.

For the main course, the eight-ounce Creekstone filet mignon was a standout. Make sure to complement the dish with one of their distinctive sides such as crispy Brussels sprouts (our personal favorite), haricots verts almondine, creamed spinach, ratatouille, or grilled asparagus.

Another highlight was the luscious Dolce & Gabbana “designer pasta” tossed with leeks, tomatoes, mushrooms, and corn.

Among other enticing entrees were a pink peppercorn-crusted, grilled Berkshire pork chop; Southern-style fried chicken; and grilled Chilean sea bass with shallot beurre blanc.

Quoting Tom Whitaker, the Executive Chef at The Colony, “Fine dining is an art form. It embodies beauty crafted from the finest cuisine, in the most exquisite settings, with impeccable service. It is akin to an orchestra, with each member playing their part in perfect harmony to create an unparalleled experience, ensuring that guests leave not just sated, but wholly satisfied.”
