“Sustainability and carbon reduction are important cultural, and culinary, benchmarks and they’re why I source most of my ingredients locally,” – Avocado Grill owner/ chef Julien Gremaud
West Palm Beach’s chef-driven restaurant, Avocado Grill features coastal, farm-to-table cuisine vis-à-vis small plates with an artisanal twist and a full raw bar, courtesy of renowned Chef Julien Gremaud.
Divided into distinct sections, Avocado Grill’s menu serves avocado, salads, veggies, land, sea, pasta, and large plates.
Entrees include fresh Ceviche, Seared Scallops, Chicken Paillard with Arugula Salad, and Stuffed Crispy Zucchini Blossoms. Housemade desserts are prepared daily and a comprehensive drink menu features wines, roses, champagnes, and craft cocktails.
Known for his ultra-seasonal, eco-conscious cooking, Chef Gremaud has cultivated a network of local farmers, fishermen, and fruit and vegetable growers to supply guests with the freshest sea-, field- and farm-to-table fare possible.
“Nothing excites me more than working with local artisans and purveyors to create inspired dishes our patrons can savor again and again,” says Gremaud.
Serving Locally Grown Foods
Before the advent of modern transportation, preservatives and consumerism, eating close to the earth was a necessity, not an option.
Avocado Grill is proud to serve patrons its artisanal menu featuring locally sourced ingredients. As part of Avocado Grill’s mission and vision, serving farm-to-table fare benefits not only our valued patrons and guests, but also our local and global environments.
Thank you for supporting Avocado Grill in this endeavor.
Chef Gremaud grew up under the glittery, culinary backdrop of Saint-Tropez, France. He wanted to be a professional chef for as long as he can remember and credits his mother for inspiring him to pursue his dream of opening his own restaurant. As a child, Julien spent many delightful hours learning the basics of French cooking under her patient instruction in the family’s kitchen. She equipped her son with the confidence and skill to become a professional pantry chef at just 14 years of age.
Shortly after that, Julien left France to hone his cooking and administrative skills at several of the finest restaurants in the UK including London’s Le Colombier and Goolies. In 2000, he arrived in the US at the age of twenty to hold consecutive positions at two of Chicago’s leading French restaurants: Le Francais and Le Vichyssois.
In 2002, he relocated to South Florida and accepted the position of personal chef for notable celebrities on Jupiter Island and Palm Beach Island. Chef Gremaud joined Pistache French Bistro in 2009 as a consultant, moving up to executive chef within weeks. His innovative approach to Francophile cuisine quickly transitioned the restaurant into a food critic favorite, garnering numerous accolades. Two years later, he was promoted to partner and co-opened Palm Beach’s famed seafood eatery, PB Catch. Finally, in fall 2014, Chef Gremaud opened the doors of Avocado Grill in downtown West Palm Beach.
In spite of a non-stop schedule, Chef Gremaud has been a frequent participant at a large number of local charity events that mark the Palm Beach social calendar. On his occasional day off Julien loves spending time with his wife, Tristan, and Labrador retrievers, Bear and Bongo. He also enjoys spinning at his turntable (he’s been a DJ since he was a teenager) and traveling around the world to source exotic ingredients and discover non-traditional culinary practices.
