2 new restaurants, 1 bar are opening in West Palm by ‘Top Chef’ star!


Bravo “Top Chef” alum Dale Talde will open two dining spots and a bar at the upcoming Grange Hall Market, part of a sprawling dining, arts and retail district rising in West Palm Beach’s industrial zone. 

Talde, whose eclectic cooking often takes inspiration from his family’s Filipino roots, will be the culinary talent behind Clare’s Chicken, The Corner and Little Red Truck, according to the Three Kings Restaurant Group, the team behind his restaurants.

Along with partners David Massoni and John Bush, Talde will open the three distinct concepts at the food hall-style market in June, says Grange Hall Market developer Chris Vila.  

At Clare’s Chicken, expect roasted and fried chicken served in a variety of flavor accents, from Thai to Southern to General Tso. The menu also will include sandwiches, salads and sides to pair with each style.  

The Corner will serve Detroit-style pan pizza as well as salads and Italian-inspired sandwiches. A style twist to expect at The Corner, says Vila: “Square pies, hence ‘the corner.’”  

As for Little Red Truck, it’s a bar serving beer, wine and “creative and fun” cocktails created by John Bush, according to a Three Kings statement.  

“We are very excited about this whole thing. I think Chef Talde is doing great stuff,” Vila told The Post Thursday. 

 Vila, who met the restaurateurs through a mutual friend, has visited the group’s Talde restaurant in Miami, where he met the chef. He also attended last fall’s opening of Massoni, the restaurant group’s Italian-inspired New York restaurant. That spot, which also serves square pizza, offers pies with interesting toppings like pepperoni/ pickled pepper/ honey, charred Brussels sprouts/ pistachio pesto/ ricotta salata and spicy sausage/ peppers/ onions/ caciocavallo/ with a side of ranch. 

 “We loved their food and (Bush’s) bar. I love the way they refer to their food as being ‘Italian-ish.’ The Caesar salad has flecks of nori in it,” says Vila.  

Grange Hall Market will be part of the larger Warehouse District, which promises to be a diverse urban village for food and drink, retail vendors, artists, fitness buffs and other indie entrepreneurs. Vila said he expects to have all food hall vendors aboard by the time Grange Hall opens.

The Warehouse District will be located off Elizabeth Avenue, just southwest of the Palm Beach County Convention Center, near downtown West Palm Beach.

 

Talde’s arrival in West Palm Beach means the city’s greater downtown area will be home to restaurants by two “Top Chef” alums. Chef Lindsay Autry of The Regional Kitchen & Public House also starred in the Bravo TV culinary competition series.  

“This is incredible news and such an exciting time in the dining scene in West Palm Beach,” Autry told The Post. “I look forward to having Dale on the home team.”

Like some French-country dishes, a clafoutis (klah-foo-TEE) sounds like something fancy and complicated, but it's actually homey and easy to make.

Somehow, throwing together a mish-mash of flavorful...
