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!

The Norton Museum of Art announced its 14th season of Live!At the Norton concerts. Performances are at 3 p.m. on Sundays in the Museum Theater, unless otherwise noted.
Since 2002, Live! At the Norton has been a regular feature of the Museum’s programming. The Norton hosts programs by many of the gifted musicians who reside in South Florida, as well as those from outside the region. “We strive to host exciting, diverse programs each year, and this year’s performers offer a rich variety of classical and jazz music,” says Glenn Tomlinson, William Randolph Hearst Curator of Education. “Artists introduce the works they’re performing from the stage so that all audience members can engage more directly with the music and performers. The Museum’s intimate theater offers a wonderful opportunity for this interchange.”
Tickets are $3 for members and $5 for non-members, and are available at the Visitor Services desk on the day of the concert. Theater doors open one hour before show time. Seating is general admission and available on a first-come, first-served basis. This program is made possible in part by the Gayle and Paul Gross Education Endowment Fund.
The 2015-16 series features the following concerts:
The Neil Bacher Quartet / Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015 Performing original jazz compositions and standards, the Neil Bacher Quartet features Bacher on guitar, Dolph Castellano on piano, Kai Sanchez on bass, and Carlomagno Araya on percussion.
