Tourist season may be fading away but restaurant season shows no signs of slowing down. . . at least in our little corner of paradise.
One more bit of evidence is coming to Haverhill Road in West Palm Beach. It’s Tunstall’s Bar & Grill, a gastropubby sports bar-slash-eatery that will specialize in Mexican and American fare, from Baja-style seafood to steaks, fried chicken and peel ‘n’ eat shrimp. Also expect an extensive selection of craft beers and weekly live music.
Proprietors are ex-Californians William and Elizabeth Tunstall, who plan a June opening in the Palm Gate Plaza shopping center at the corner of Haverhill and Roebuck. Their menu offers the kind of simple, hearty fare that should give sports fans plenty of energy to cheer on their favorite mesomorphs.
We’re talking “buckets and boards,” the former dishing up Baja-style lobster and shrimp, plus carne asada and grilled chicken, as well as fish ‘n’ chips and fried chicken, all coming with a roster of all you can eat sides. The latter consists of steak, chicken or shrimp served on—you guessed it—a board, with dipping sauce and mashed, fried or baked potatoes.
