is MORE THAN OUR MENU.
it’s our mission
At Avocado Grill, we take pride in our artisanal menu featuring hand-selected ingredients. It is our mission to serve locally sourced, vibrantly flavored fare that benefits not only our valued patrons and guests, but also our local and global environments. Our atmosphere is as inspiring as our food. We enjoy serving South Florida’s growing culinary community. We take great pride in being the destination for those who love exciting small plates, a coastal-fresh raw bar and creative craft cocktails served in a relaxed and friendly vibe.
Executive Chef & Owner
West Palm Beach & Palm Beach Gardens
Hailing from St. Tropez, world traveler and award-winning chef, Julien Gremaud is the mastermind behind Avocado Grill. Taking from his travels, the French trained Gremaud creates ingredient-driven cuisine that begins with only the finest locally sourced elements. He redefines what it means to create fresh plates in an innovative and exciting atmosphere.
His love for cooking came at an early age and was developed in his mother’s kitchen, under her patient instruction, and inspired by her. In his almost three decades in the kitchen, Gremaud has amassed a number of achievements including working in the finest restaurants in the United Kingdom, Chicago and Palm Beach, as well as serving as private chef for Florida-based celebrities. He has turned restaurants in to award-winning destinations, and immediately put Avocado Grill on the food critics favorites list. His accolades are both personal and restaurant-wide including being named Rising Star Chef by the Palm Beach Post, taking home the title of Judge’s Favorite in the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival Chef Throwdown, and Avocado Grill being named Best New Restaurant by The Palm Beach Post, New Times, and Florida Trend Magazine to name a few.
His menus are designed responsibly, utilizing what local purveyors have available, and are memorable for diners with all tastes.
Just as important as the cuisine he serves, is the community he inhabits. Chef Gremaud is a frequent participant in a number of South Florida charity events and food festivals. He serves as co-chair for the Palm Beaches Taste of the Nation event and has personally helped the organization raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to combat childhood hunger. In 2019 when parts of The Bahamas was destroyed by Hurricane Dorian, he stepped up with other local restauranteurs to organize over round the clock assistance here in PBC and on the ground in The Bahamas to assist those who lost everything with food, medical help, and even cleaning and rebuilding what they lost.
When he is not in the kitchen, Chef Gremaud can be seen traveling the world, sourcing exotic ingredients to add to the locally themed dishes presented at Avocado Grill and discovering non-traditional culinary practices. He enjoys family time and doing his part to make Palm Beach County the best it can be.
