A beloved West Palm Beach restaurant is making moves downtown. Chef Rick Mace and his business partner, Jason Lakow, are bringing the flavors of Tropical Smokehouse to Olive Avenue with Tropical BBQ Market, which is slated to open August 21.

Since opening more than two years ago, Tropical Smokehouse and its Florida craft barbecue have earned a devoted local following and garnered a slew of national accolades, including a James Beard nomination for Mace and being named the best locally owned restaurant in Florida by Southern Living magazine.

Tropical BBQ Market will offer the same style of cuisine in a fast-casual setting, with Prime brisket, mojo pork, smoked salmon, pulled chicken, barbecue jackfruit, and more available via counter service. The menu reflects the grab-and-go nature of the restaurant, with most mains priced between $13 and $17. Highlights include barbecue plates with a main and two sides, smoked curry chicken served with rice or roti, and an array of sandwiches including the house No. 13 (pork, chorizo, and avocado) and No. 7 (brisket, peppers, and chimichurri).

Tropical BBQ Market will also serve breakfast daily from 7 to 10 a.m. Stop by to try everything from an egg and cheese roti to a brisket, egg, and cheese sandwich plus sweet treats like banana nut bread and strawberry-guava muffins.
