Fans of authentic New England-style seafood—and not just chowder—can start salivating for their piscine fix as the West Palm debut of Chowder Heads is slated to take place in just a few weeks.

The Okeechobee Boulevard sibling of the Jupiter parent will feature an even more extensive menu of fish and shellfish than the original, most all of it shipped down to our little corner of paradise straight from the source.

What that means in your mouth, in addition to three types of chowder (New England, Manhattan and Rhode Island), is blue crab cakes and cocktails, Ipswich clams both steamed and fried, dry-packed scallops, haddock in several guises and, of course, Maine lobster. Stay tuned for a grand opening announcement.

Also in West Palm, the long-awaited debut of 100 Montaditos (460 S. Rosemary Ave., 561/249-2444) has finally arrived. The opening of the local branch of the Spanish purveyor of tapas-sized sandwiches is a bit of good news for CityPlace, which has been the subject of several stories about its evicting the popular brewpub Brewzzi and subsequent moves to do the same to Blue Martini. Never a dull moment in the restaurant biz. . .
