“Creating a restaurant always begins with a concept and a storyline. Everything follows from there, from the menu to service to the lighting to the interior design. When you start with the right concept, the different elements fall into place naturally and the total experience for guests is exciting and memorable.”


Point Royal and Counter PointHOLLYWOOD, FL

Chef Geoffrey Zakarian's two newest concepts, Point Royal and Counter Point, are located inside The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, FL. Point Royal is a Coastal restaurant open for breakfast and dinner, featuring Zakarian's American cuisine with a menu geared towards its casual seaside location. Counter Point is a separate, casual cafe and retail shop, offering guests Zakarian's signature style of hospitality in a carry out or dine-in atmosphere with counter ordering and an array of grab and go items.
