Tired of driving to the beach for decadent dinners and brunches, two twentysomethings with ties to Wellington’s equestrian scene partnered in the Trophy Room. Their St. Tropez-inspired restaurant and lounge takes over the Grille Fashion Cuisine’s former location. Co-owners Rob Gray, whose hospitality experience includes running the Gallery pop-up cocktail bar at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, and Teddy Vlock, an internationally ranked rider, fully renovated interiors. Glam touches are an antique mirror and brass bar, Carrera marble tables and blue velvet seating. A fountain and boxwood hedges spruce up the terrace. The comprehensive menu fills many voids in the area: raw bar favorites, kurobuta pork ribs in hoisin barbecue sauce, prosciutto-wrapped shrimp lollipops, and classics like burgers and lobster rolls. Come for dinner and stay for the party.
