Food: Clematis Restaurant Reviews

Downtown West Palm Beach is home to a fair number of places to eat. In my experience, there really isn't any one eatery that does everything well; instead, you'll get served hits and misses at each restaurant. Here's a quick guide if you ever visit the area:

Cabana Nuevo Latino

Yum! - The churrasco skirt steak is probably the best you'll find in West Palm Beach; it comes out on a sizzling plate with tasty chimichurri.

Um... - World's saltiest chicharrones de pollo. Mediocre soups and salads.


Yum! - Solid sushi and sashimi, workmanlike Thai food, nice happy hour.

Um... - It's Asian fusion, which means there are a thousand and one other options (two similar restaurants, Fuku and Palm Sugar, are literally within shouting distance of the place). The curry portions can be a bit skimpy.

Rocco's Tacos

Yum! - Upscale Tex-Mex at its yuppiest: big ole gringo margaritas, tacos galore, and guac made tableside.

Um... - Rice and beans are, well, bad (you'd think it'd be the easiest thing in the world to make). A noisy bar runs the length of the restaurant - at night, it sometimes gets so loud that you can barely hear yourself think.

Pizza Girls

Yum! - The Manhattan Meat is a carnivore's dream (Italian sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, ham, and bacon). Sure to break a few dietary laws.

Um... - At around $5 a slice for specialty pizza, it'll hit your wallet as hard as your gut. You're paying for the view, so sit outside and watch the boats go by on the Intercoastal.
