We had the privilege of being invited to a restaurant food tour at the beautiful Diplomat Beach Resort, located in Hollywood, Florida. This resort has all the bells and whistles that scream luxury and we’re lucky enough to have it in our very own backyard. Snuggled between the intercostal and the north Atlantic coast, this beautiful resort boasts amazing views from every direction.
While on our tour, we visited and dined in three of their restaurants and needless to say we were beyond pleased with the level of care they gave us when preparing our gluten free food. They’re a really thoughtful and knowledgeable group of chefs, waiters, and restaurant managers, who go above and beyond to make sure their guests (be it someone from the hotel or an outsider looking for a good meal) are treated with the best service all around.
Below is a list of the restaurants we had the pleasure of visiting.
Located at Diplomat Landing, Bristol’s Burger is your classic burger joint offering fresh baked buns, shakes, beer on tap, and an arcade to boot! Bristol’s impressed us the most, because not only do they make their regular burger buns in-house, they also make their gluten free buns in-house as well! You can really taste the quality in the food they serve, everything is really thought out carefully and dripping with flavor. They served us their Toasted Quinoa (Veggie Burger) on a GF bun and it was out of this world!… Probably the best veggie burger we’ve ever had.
Located across the way from Bristol’s, separated by a beautiful fountain, Portico is an Italian inspired beer and wine garden with casual open air dining at it’s core. With over 20 beers, wines, and cocktails all on tap, live music, and waterside dining, their goal is to make you feel as relaxed as possible. Their menu is really simple with signature pizzas, small plates, and charcuterie and cheese boards so you’re sure to find something that will pair well with your mason jar of wine or beer.. but just make sure you get your hands on at least one of their specialty Bruschetta, trust us! They also offer outdoor games like ping pong, corn hole, and ring toss, so it’s fun a family or a group of friends can all enjoy.
Located inside the resort, Diplomat Prime is a luxury boutique steakhouse with 108 seats and refined decor. Serving prime beef aged in-house (like their 48-day aged Tomahawk steak), seasonally-driven seafood dishes, and select delicate fare, this beautifully decorated restaurant has service like no other. With a menu that boasts some of the most refined and delicious options, your taste buds will surely be pleased. Really just the most luxurious dining experience anyone could have, perfect for any special occasion the person you take to dinner will surely be impressed.
Whatever the occasion, whether it be a quick visit for a casual bite to eat or a formal dinner with that special someone, The Diplomat Beach Resort has got it all. A beautiful hotel with out of this world service and top of the line amenities… it’s truly the type of place you can really relax and enjoy yourself in.
