"The roasted chicken with herb brioche stuffing was a perfect pairing - light and juicy, with subtle seasonings that enriched the chicken."

This Christmas Eve enjoy a delicious a la carte dinner from husband-wife team Jordan Lerman and Stephanie Cohen at Jardin. The duo offers ferociously seasonal modern American cuisine with everything made in-house — from breads, chips and charcuterie to jams, pasta, and ice cream.
Menu highlights include: Roasted Winter Salad with beets, Jerusalem artichoke, fall vegetables, pumpernickel, grains, house ricotta. Braised Beef Ribs with cider glazed cabbage, cheddar polenta, pan roasted apples, hazelnut gremolata. Oven Roasted Chicken with herb brioche stuffing, white onion, berries, hen of the woods mushrooms, and confit marble potatoes. Chef Lerman shines in the kitchen with his inventive cuisine, but Chef Cohen’s dessert offerings are reason alone to visit the restaurant. Rotating seasonally, current standouts include the Can I Have S’more’? -a playful take on s’mores with warm chocolate & eggnog, graham, chocolate, and house cinnamon ‘mallow, and the Mmm….Doughnuts with blackberry jam, maple and brie.

A buzz is growing over the truly hidden find on Clematis in downtown West Palm Beach. Jardin, a restaurant that opened earlier this year, is owned by a newlywed couple who have put their best into an international menu here.
A six-course tasting menu is one way to sample a lot of the creative chef’s work. All the foods center on the seasons, and the menu changes daily.
For fall, it featured items such as cauliflower with maple yogurt, Vadouvan cashews, and grapes as a starter. Sweet potatoes and slow-roasted pork, duck tacos, and oven roast chicken with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and marble potatoes were entrees — changed out with other dishes of the night.
Some thing stay: Charred octopus appetizer — a don’t miss dish — is served with a chorizo gremolata and passion fruit with sprouted almonds.
Chef/owner Jordan Lerman, Florida born but with time spent in the Middle East, surprises diners with an unusual ingredient in nearly every dish. Find Forbidden rice served with fresh catch, or bulgur with a pork shoulder steak, along with endive and blue cheese. The pan-roasted duck has farro, mustard greens, and persimmons — with crushed peanuts.
A number of dishes are vegetarian or gluten-free — including the desserts made by Stephanie Cohen— a student of French pastry. A full bar and select wine list complements the foods here.
A tip: Sit at the bar and watch the chef hard at work, preparing foods fresh to order.
City & Shore named Chef Jordan Lerman and Pastry Chef Stephanie Cohen as one of the Top Chefs of 2016. Check out this great article by clicking on the title.
