According to ZAGAT…You’re “in the hands of a Master” at Chef Masa Takayama’s “serene” Upper East Side Japanese (located below the Gagosian Art Gallery) where the “delicate” sushi made from the “freshest quality” fish is offered alongside a diverse array of cooked dishes.


Kappo Masa from Old Machine on Vimeo.
I personally couldn’t agree more! Living around the corner I am there at least once a week, and I am never disappointed. I must admit I tend to order the same dishes over and over again…because they are just so delicious. However, my beautiful children are more adventurous and always bring something new to the table that we have not tried. 

Some of our favorites include: Beef Avocado Tartare Caviar With White Truffle, Tai White Truffle Ceviche, Daikon Cucumber with Yuzu Honey ( salad ), Vegetable Chowder with Clams, Coconut Lobster Tacos, Beef Skewers Yuzu Kosho, Fried Calamari with Chili Salt. ( my favorite ) 

Located conveniently on the Upper East Side! Kappo Masa is a must!

“Delicious Cocktails that included…..Wet and Dry Martinis, On the Rock….and my favorite, The Dark Horse.”

The Four Seasons

The Leopard Lounge….located in the Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach at 363 Cocoanut Row, is really one of my favorite places to have dinner with the family. The food is fresh and delicious using the finest local and seasonal ingredients and the staff is extraordinarily attentive. There is live entertainment every night which my children especially enjoy that creates a lively and spirited mood. There is also a fabulous range of wine, spirits, cocktails and they have their own home made flavored vodkas. The pineapple martini is divine!

Set your taste buds alight in the Leopard’s Lair

The legendary and newly refurbished Leopard Lounge, one of Palm Beach’s best loved institutions, is the epitome of sleek sophistication. Jet black lacquered walls, window blinds, granite topped tables, leather banquette seating and chairs, are perfectly complemented by a leopard skin patterned carpet, beveled mirrors, punkah fans and the richly swirling white and red images of the decadent hand painted ceiling.

Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between, the menu features an eclectic mix of classic American, English, Oriental and International dishes prepared with flair and imagination by
Executive Chef Gerard Coughlin. Breakfast and lunch can also be enjoyed on the courtyard patio or by the pool.

Lunchtime favourites include their famous Aberdeen Angus Beef Burgers served with the fresh topping of your choice and a wire basket of crispy fries, their inspired Leopard Club Sandwich with avocado and hard-boiled egg, and Bea’s Chicken Noodle Soup – a velvety smooth bowl of delicious goodness created by the founder, Bea Tollman.

Signature dinner dishes include the Veal Chop and the 14oz boneless New York Strip, both cooked to perfection in a 900° wood burning Josper Grill. The searing heat produces a lightly charred outer layer that locks in all the natural juices and rich flavor to create an unforgettably appetizing taste experience. The South African Style Chicken Curry, prepared with a special mix of 10 exotic spices and served with fragrant jasmine rice, crispy poppadoms and tangy mango chutney, is equally popular.

Diners also love their signature Maryland Style Lump Crab Cakes. Made from genuine lump crab meat, lightly breaded then pan seared to a golden brown and drizzled with our Chili Lime Mayonnaise, they’re a delicious appetizer.

Bartenders are minor celebrities in their own right and every night they provide some of the finest live entertainment in all of Palm Beach – this is definitely the place to be seen, to dance the night away, or to just sit back and soak up the atmosphere.
