The new location is 8,000 square-feet with 21 teppanyaki tables. (Teppanyaki tables are communal dining tables that have teppan grills on one side so you can watch the chefs make your plate fresh. The chefs put on a fun little show while you're watching them cook, doing things like making onion volcanoes and shaping the food into fun designs). There's also a separate 30-seat full bar with the same menu just no show.

Enjoy fresh, local seafood just steps from the ocean. In Palm Beach, there is only one true outdoor restaurant at the ocean’s edge. Atlantic Bar and Grill, located in the Four Seasons Resort, 2800 South Ocean Boulevard, Palm Beach serves lunch and dinner daily.

The Executive Chef, Tory Martindale, feels food should be fun and whimsical.  He is quoted as saying, “I love to create dishes by mixing different cultural pinpoints of flavor and style.
