 It's not who you know, it's WHOM YOU KNOW and our quick little feet could not get to The Shadmoor fast enough for their amazing Al Fresco dining and cuisine!  (The Best Realtor in Palm Beach surely knows these shoes.)
 In addition to their seating along East 56th Street, The Shadmoor has expanded to Second Avenue.
 It's time to hang ten with your dinner, Big Kahunas!
 The Shadmoor is clean, stylish and classy inside and out. 
They still have the best bathroom door anywhere.
The Shadmoor was selected as a Peachy's Pick in 2018:
It was last featured this past spring:
Many of the newer restaurants cannot compete with the glory the veterans have achieved, however, The Shadmoor can.
 We are huge advocates of salads, and the produce show coming up in December is one of our most favorite trade shows.  The Shadmoor excels in this realm; we tried three salads.
We haven't seen any other watermelon salads this summer, and this is perfection.
Even the girl that abhors goat cheese does not mind the dusting here.  If you do like goat cheese, you will be wild for this.  Seedless watermelon, cashews, and cucumber come to this party and there is even strawberry dressing to light up your life. 
 Dr. Oz, drumroll please.  Meet the new Chopped Salad which has a KALE base.  Baby kale joins red quinoa, red apples, toasted almonds, and feta to innovate the salad menu at The Shadmoor.  They put the dressing on the side for Ms. Pretty Picky: lemon mustard.  Note it is in a stunning silver boat.
 Calamari is a winning ticket, and you have the option to have it either grilled, which we prefer, or fried.  We're told seafood arrives fresh here every day and this calamari is beautifully enhanced with fresh lemon juice, oregano and parsley.  It announces less is more and when you are using great products, you don't need to dress them up too much.  Tender and fresh, this is a success.
 Here's our most favorite edition to the menu.  We wish we ordered five so we could eat it every day of the week.  Meet TRUFFLE SPINACH DIP!!!  All spinach should come truffled. 
 Heavy cream, artichoke and pecorino romano on top melted perfectly adorn the majesty of truffled spinach.  This is perfect game out tomorrow afternoon New Jersey...Boston College is playing Rutgers!  GO EAGLES.
 The best new salad is the Baby Kale Skirt Steak Salad, and it could be a meal in itself.  Steak is stylishly marinated in mandarin oranges, guava, ginger, lime and garlic for entry onto this plate, and it is joined by avocado, sesame seeds, almonds, dried apricots and lemon mustard dressing.  The juicy sensation of the steak will wow you.
 Carnivores like Peachy can never have enough meat.  For her carnivorous entree, she chose the exquisite Baby Lamb Chops, sourced from Australia.  They are wondrous medium-rare and of course because The Shadmoor knows what they are doing the first time, we did not have to ask for the steak knife which arrives concurrently with the dish.  Roasted lemon potatoes, grilled vegetables and red wine cranberry sauce make this entree sheer genius.
As we are also advocates of poisson, we ordered the Dover Sole which swims over from Holland, and it is exactly what we were looking for.  The presentation also earns high marks and both the flavor, quality and style of the Dover Sole will leave you terrifically impressed. 
Don't ignore the sides!  From the classic of sauteed broccoli and cauliflower to the new side of asparagus couscous, The Shadmoor will enchant you. 
When cake is 98% chocolate and only 2% flour, that is the right answer to earning a great review.  Vanilla gelato accentuates this chocolate festival which includes four different kinds of chocolate in this cake. 

The Shadmoor continues to be Highly Recommended by Whom You Know.
