Le Bilboquet PB’s Big Catch
Adabis Castro, Executive Chef of Le Bilboquet Palm Beach
Cuban-born, Miami-raised and internationally seasoned, Le Bilboquet’s Adabis Castro comes to the island after a storied career in NYC that includes five star and boutique hotels, a Michelin-star establishment, gastropubs, a cutting-edge Brooklyn restaurant and more. Trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Miami, Castro sharpened his knife skills at Coral Gables’ famed-French restaurant Pascal’s on Ponce. From there, he joined Alain Ducasse’s team in NYC’s St. Regis Hotel. Along the way in 2013, he found himself in the kitchen of Manhattan’s beloved Le Bilboquet as its Sous Chef. Almost a decade later and a few pitstops in between, Castro has returned to Bilboquet to helm the kitchen at its new Palm Beach outpost.
Provence Meets Florida Palms at Le Bilboquet Palm Beach
Thanks to Castro’s steady hand and culinary vision, it’s fast becoming the island’s most desired reservation with its elevated bistro interiors and a verdant outside seating area filled with a botanical blend that includes wall-climbing jasmine. Think Provence meets Florida Palms. The menu is an alluring list of beloved French classics and modern reinventions anchored with seasonal ingredients. “For me it’s all about the food. Food is and has always been a big deal,” says Castro, who is known to lead by example, working as hard as anyone in his kitchen and redoing a dish if it doesn’t taste or look camera-ready.
