Welcome to Grandview Gardens Concierge, a Restaurant & Event Blog for the Palm Beaches! We welcome over 1000 guests annually to the Grandview Gardens Bed & Breakfast and Vacation Homes Resort. As is typical for a B & B, we only serve breakfast. For lunch and dinner, we send guests to all types of restaurants around the area for every imaginable occasion. When we're serving breakfast in the morning, we hear about the escapades and adventures from the night before... especially about the restaurants where everybody ate. As a result, our friends and neighbors regularly ask advice about the current "ins and outs" of the local restaurant and party scene. So Rick, Peter and Jan have put together a "short list" of our most often recommended restaurants, which you'll find in the side bar. You will notice that most of our recommendations are for West Palm Beach and Palm Beach, but we do have a few favorite restaurants included in neighboring cities and towns. In addition to the short list, we'll occasionally be posting blog articles about restaurants and local events which could be of interest to visitors and locals alike. If you become a "Fan" of the Grandview Gardens Facebook Page, you'll automatically get a notice when we post an article. Enjoy!

Flavor Palm Beach is a month long dining event established to introduce diners to the vast array of restaurants throughout Palm Beach County at reduced prices during the slowest month of the year: September. Local gastronomes as well as visitors to the Palm Beaches have the opportunity to enjoy a selection of specially priced three course meals from some of the area’s best restaurants during this dining event. This is a great time to visit those restaurants you always wanted to try, or simply take advantage of the deals at your favorite eatery. This year’s prices are $ 20 for lunch and either $ 30 or $ 35 for dinner, depending on the restaurant. Prices are per person and exclude beverages, tax and gratuity. A complete list of participating restaurants can be found on the Flavor Palm Beach website by clicking here. Reservations can be booked also on the Flavor Palm Beach site on the link next to each restaurant listed or by contacting the restaurant directly. Due to the popularity of this event, advance reservations are strongly recommended, but walk-ins are welcome.
