West Palm Beach Wine Bar is now featuring all day bistro, becoming the latest addition to the array of amenities offered at AKA West Palm.

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. AKA West Palm announce the opening of The Blind Monk, the beloved West Palm Beach wine bar known for its delectable dishes and extensive wine offerings. The Blind Monk at AKA West Palm will be an evolution and expansion of the culinary concept from wine bar to all day bistro. The Blind Monk stands as the latest addition to the expanding array of amenities at AKA West Palm, offering an elevated dining experience for Palm Beach locals and AKA guests.

While preserving its distinctive features, such as the natural wine list, artisanal cheese program, and attentive service, The Blind Monk serves its sought-after breakfast and brunch and is debuting an expanded dinner menu beginning in early May. Additionally, the enhanced beverage program features a full bar with a thoughtfully-curated cocktail list.

“The debut of The Blind Monk at AKA reflects our commitment to crafting memorable experiences for both guests and neighbors,” says Larry Korman, CEO of AKA. “In the search for a culinary partner for AKA West Palm, we specifically sought a restaurant with deep roots in the West Palm Beach community. The Blind Monk naturally stood out as the perfect choice.”

From its sophisticated food selection to its warm hospitality and inviting atmosphere, the personality of The Blind Monk exudes approachable elegance with plenty of comfort and charm. Inspired by fresh flavors and ingredients, the menu emphasizes seasonal vegetables and local seafood. Many dishes are crafted for sharing, inviting diners to experience a range of recipes around the table. The Blind Monk favorites such as their classic Cheese BoardsCharred Cauliflower, and Chicken Liver Mousse are featured on the menu, and new dish highlights of the dinner menu include Grilled Swordfish Skewers with black lentils and Mussels Escabeche with fried green plantains. Additionally, The Blind Monk is a new gathering place for breakfast in Downtown West Palm, featuring their Sour Cream Pancakes, Shakshuka, and Avocado Toast.

At the bar, The Blind Monk maintains its robust natural wine list and a new cocktail menu with riffs on the classics. A few include the Stubborn Jenny, an aperitivo with Pineau Des Charentes, ginger and lime, and the Day Tripper, made with tequila, lime, grapefruit, paw-paw, and prickly pear.

Guests are treated to an ambiance that seamlessly blends modern sophistication with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The tastefully designed space features a comfortable dining area, a stylish bar, and a cozy outdoor wine garden, providing the perfect setting for any occasion, whether it be a casual gathering or a special celebration. Upon entering, guests may also notice a subtle music theme, as they are greeted by classic rock from the 60s and 70s, and the menu design is inspired by The Beatles’ Abbey Road album.

“When I first opened The Blind Monk, I aimed to create the place I wanted to come home to,” says Ben Lubin. “The new Blind Monk reflects how I have evolved over the past thirteen years. It is the neighborhood restaurant I want, and I hope it is the neighborhood restaurant you do, too.”
