Chanson Restaurant at the Royal Blues Hotel in Deerfield Beach – The South Florida Sage

We recently got to experience an intimate dinner at Royal Blues, Florida’s only Relais & Châteaux hotel. We enjoyed an exclusive five-course wine pairing dinner at the on-property restaurant, Chanson. Level-three sommelier Krystal Kinney was there to share her expansive knowledge of small-vineyard wineries with us!

Bourbon & Cherry Cocktail

Before making your way into the main dining room, enjoy a cocktail by the bar (which is limited to only 4 seats) or in the adjacent lounge area.

Chanson’s interior design is striking. Tables are nestled next to expansive windows with a panaromic view of the ocean. A 1,500-gallon saltwater aquarium customized for the space cascades above diners in the ceiling.

Combined with sophisticated, modern design, the Chanson dining room is an ethereal, chic and intimate space.

The menu is ever-evolving, subtly shifting with the seasons to provide new, original culinary experiences with the freshest seafood and finest organic ingredients. In the style of “Cuisine du Monde”, the menu takes a modern twist on worldly classics. The inspired menu is decadent and playful, while the plates are presented with stunning artistic creativity and precision.

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Aged Parmesan, Sage Butter and Chestnut Crumble

The ravioli was so delicate and delightful – you can tell that it was homemade! I’ve always thought of ravioli as being a heavier dish, but not this time.

Scallop with Florida Citrus Salad, Vanilla, Avocado and Blood Orange Bitters

I loved the cook on this scallop, it was beautifully golden brown without being overcooked. This dish was refreshing and offered interesting flavors that worked well paired together.

Halibut with Asparagus, Cucumber Salad and Mustard Sauce

This halibut was a gorgeous piece of fish and was perfectly cooked. It was moist, flaky and not at all dry. The mustard sauce was delicious and to my surprise I enjoyed the warm cucumber salad.

A list of wines that we enjoyed with dinner.

A true gem of the Florida’s Gold Coast, the oceanfront 12-room hotel is an intimate, luxury hotel located oceanside in Deerfield Beach, Florida. We loved the ambience and appreciated the emphasis on local and fresh foods served at Chanson.

Visit for brunch and sit outside – the view is unbeatable!
