Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. It's the first time I've felt like a kid at Christmas in a long time. This was my first visit and I was really just looking for a place to eat lunch. I arrived around 2:00 pm so parking was no problem and better yet, Free on Sunday. I had a pretty good idea of the selection by checking my iPhone just before I arrived. As if the drive over was not beautiful enough, there is a fountain to greet you and a small amphitheater overlooking the bay. I parked near the fountain and as I turned and started to walk to where I thought I wanted to eat, I saw it. World of Beer. Ok, maybe I was being just a little to quick to decide. This place needed a little more of an investigation. I popped in to the World of Beer just to see then headed up the street in search of lunch. There was one fabulous eatery after another. I was trying to look at both sides of the street at once and read menus as I went. I don't travel to West Palm Beach very often and I was amazed at the selection. How about a burger joint called GREASE. Click the link. Great website too.
Oh I was so tempted but there were even more places just a little farther down the block. Sure it was hot and yes I was starving but I wanted to make the perfect choice. When I reached Don Ramon's I was ready to commit. The restaurant was very inviting as was the staff and the menu made picking the restaurant seem easy. There were several things I was not too sure about so with a few questions to the waiter, I ordered them. On the way back to the car I stopped into This N That, an antique shop that had some amazing things and even more amazingly affordable prices. It was sort of funny seeing items I remembered growing up in the shop on sale. I found a small table I really wanted and at a great price. I wish I had picked it up. Oh Well. Even more reason to go back again. Sunday afternoon was the perfect time for a visit as I'm told this place is hopping at night. I only scratched the surface as there are several more streets in the area I left unexplored. If you like the bar thing and live music, they seem to have plenty of that too.
