August's Restaurant Openings and Closings in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

August was relatively quiet, but a few restaurants managed to throw up the "open" sign last month.

It's once again that time in the month when Clean Plate Charlie takes stock of the dining scene, listing off the newbies, the dearly (and not-so-dearly) departed, and projects coming down the pike in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Activity was slow in comparison to July -- find the list of July openings and closings here -- but with so many restaurants on deck, this fall should prove to keep the CPC crew plenty busy. Know of a place we missed? Sound off in the comments.

On Deck in WPB, The Fire Within food truck will soon be making our return! Look for Palm Beach County's favorite food truck roaming the streets again in a couple weeks! We can hardly wait to serve our amazing followers again!


On deck in Delray, Gary Racks new place across from Salt and Park Tavern. It was awaiting permits for a long time but now demo is in full swing, they are going full speed ahead and no doubt would love to open in time for season starting perhaps in late November perhaps, if I had to take a wild guess.
