The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach is offering a “Food for Thought” package that includes “Boulud Breaks”: leaner, lighter refreshments from the on-property restaurant Café Boulud.
“High-level professionals are more attuned now than ever to the nutrition that allows them to achieve their maximum,” says Café Boulud Executive Chef Rick Mace, who created the meeting menus with founding chef Daniel Boulud. “Nowadays, eating habits tend to be lighter, with an emphasis on quality ingredients.”
The meeting menus are inspired by the French-American cuisine Boulud created for Café Boulud. Besides the restaurant’s classic sandwiches, Mace says, Boulud Breaks feature healthful snacks such as house-made vegetable chips, toasted nuts and fresh vegetable crudités. We can’t find scientific proof, but we have to believe those choices inspire more post-lunch productivity than potato chips or pastry.
Not that potato chips would exactly fit in at The Brazilian Court, one of the more elegant venues in a town that defines elegance. The hotel offers 3,500 square feet of executive meeting space. Facilities for corporate events and strategic retreats include a conservatory and a richly appointed library. In addition, just outside the front door of the hotel is the Brazilian Court Pavilion, a state-of-the art small-meetings facility with plush, oversized executive chairs, international teleconferencing and wide-screen plasma monitors.
Food for Thought isn’t available for long: You must book by March 15 and your group must use it by June 30.
