Closed: The Cholo BBQ at Grandview Market
This was Chef Clay Carnes’ place and had a rep for making darn good barbecue. But new owners came in, there were whispers about rent increases, and changes happened. You can still—thankfully—have Carnes’ wonderful tacos and other Andean street food at his primary venue, Cholo Soy Cocina, 3715 S. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach’s Antique Row. As for Grandview, Celis Produce is gone from the market, too.
