Dining in the West Palm area

Lovely space. Clientele looked like they stepped out of a yoga or gym commercial. Tight, muscular, perfectly groomed people.
Simple menu. Sandwiches, bubby (pastrami, cheese, Cole slaw, Russian dressing), aubergine (eggplant, avocado, roasted peppers, etc). Best bread in S Florida so far. Par-baked, delivered frozen twice weekly. Chef Byrne said they do bread tastings three times each year.
Really nice place. Seating for 20, lots of take out, several huge orders.
So, I had to ask. About all the sculpted people. Yes, one of the principals is a yoga instructor. Yes, they did talk it up. The focus on healthful food has people coming back for more.

Hip, and West Palm - man, does that sound disjointed.
Hip in a Florida, ironic sort of way. Clematis Street is often closed on weekend evenings for music, hootenanies, etc.

The Warehouse district perks along, with Grandview Public Market opening by the end of this year. 1401 Clare Street. This is about a 30 minute walk from the current hip zone on Clematis Street.
I hardly remember seeing anyone walk farther than from the parking lot to a venue. Certainly not from venue to venue. Has this changed?

Wonderful meatballs parm sandwich on a great piece of sub sandwich roll. Big meatballs, sliced into three pieces each, with cheese and home made tomato sauce. Good pizza bianco, not great. Soft crust, thin crust. It was better tonight, crisped on our pizza brick.
Unlike the Tequesta location, this is a converted gas station, very basic place. Nice vibe in the Design & Decor district.

Had a late lunch today in the Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant at the Palm Beach Gardens Mall. (SNIP)
It's a nice concept, and the food seemed fine. Steaks, fish, lighter foods, modest privacy in booths. I'd say it fits beneath a Capital Grille and Ruth's Chris, but well above Applebee's, Cheesecake Factory, Outback, etc. Definitely suitable for business. Several locations in Illinois and Florida, as well as IN, MO, MD, OH, VA.
