PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2012) - Angle, specializing in locally-grown ingredients and South Florida specialties, presents a new "angle" to enjoying dinner at the signature Palm Beach restaurant. In the spirit of the Top Chef Elimination challenge Chef McGhee and his team will produce several palate pleasing courses, usually five or more, to eager and adventurous guests. Chefs flex their mettle and culinary creativity while having minimal time to prepare a full meal from the time the guest is seated to enjoying the first course. In this scenario, Chef de Cuisine Matthew McGhee presents a beautiful meal from several sources -- current menu items, specialty ingredients available to him from local purveyors and/or from the pantries of the Palm Beach hotel's kitchens.

 "Chef Matt is one of the most enthusiastic and creative chefs I have ever met and his flair for perfection shines with every dish. We are thrilled to have him at the helm of Angle and guests will thoroughly enjoy his dinner experience," stated Executive Chef Jason Adams.

The culinary tour de force begins with Chef Matt greeting the guests where he discusses dinner options, reviews their likes and dislikes and explains the flow of the evening. Guests will start with house-made BBQ Chips with a Bleu Cheese Dressing, plus savory, out-the-oven Rosemary and Swiss Cheese Popovers. Likewise, the Palm Beach resort's sommelier, Don DeRocher, will serve a celebratory glass of Champagne and then artfully pair each course with select glasses of wine as the meal progresses. This feast will continue until the guest is satisfied or until the courses are complete. Suggested appetizer courses could be a seasonal treasure of Heirloom Beets with Loxahatchee Goat Cheese, Passion Fruit and Pistachios; Butternut Squash Cappuccino (richly steeped with flavor); Sheep's Milk Ricotta Gnocchi; or Wood Charred Octopus -- it is a crowd favorite at Angle.

Autumnal entree selections could include: Crispy Atlantic Sea Bass, Sauerkraut, Smoked Fingerlings; Broken Arrow Ranch Wild Boar Chops with Pickled Blueberries or one of Matt's imaginative dishes. Angle's approach to dessert is as sweetly serious as the rest of the menu: 14 Layer Chocolate Cake with Vine-Ripened Berry and Herb Salad; Warm Honey Apple Crisp with Home-made Tonka Bean Frozen Yogurt or Warm Banana Fritters with Piña Colada Ice Cream and Meyer Rum Caramel.

The Spontaneous Chef's Table is $95 per person, which consists of approximately five - eight courses and includes coffee and dessert. The wine pairings are $45 per person; all pricing is subject to tax and service charge.
