WE CREATE NEW GROUND
In 1980 Lidia and I opened Cafè L’Europe at 150 Worth Avenue on the second
floor of the Esplanade. From opening day, Cafè L’Europe quickly became part of the Palm Beach allure. World-renowned Worth Avenue was at the pinnacle of High Fashion and it seemed like every famous fashion designer and cosmetic royal graced the dining rooms at Cafè L’Europe. Champagne bottles were popped so often it was hard to keep up with demand. Cafè L’Europe was serving not only the fabulous Palm Beaches and local residents of the area but also all the international visitors of the day.
The “Movers and Shakers” of industry, manufacturing, finance and government, as well as some of the greatest writers and entertainers all became Cafè L’Europe’s guests. Many became “Regulars” alongside aristocrats and royalty from around the world.
