Florida Cookery Opens at the James Royal Palm Hotel

Florida Cookery Opens at the James Royal Palm Hotel Thursday, November 1, Florida Cookery at The James Royal Palm, 1545 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

The James Royal Palm is bringing a taste of Florida history to the new hotel on South Beach with Chef Kris Wessel of Red Light Little River at the helm of the hotel’s second restaurant: Florida Cookery, named after a 1940s-era Junior League cookbook that he found in his grandmother’s kitchen. Wessel, who has received numerous accolades including a James Beard nomination for Best Chef in the South, will bring his authentic and homey flair to South Beach with a menu including frog legs bathed in lime leaves, lychee roasted quail and mango pie.
