Curbside Gourmet Hits the Road in West Palm Beach

Curbside Gourmet, the creation of former movie-TV caterer and private chef Rick Simek and culinary grad Mary Cheatham, is now roving along Dixie Highway and Flagler Street, dishing breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks that aim to hit the sweet spot described in the logo: "local, honest, seasonal street food." 

What that means in your mouth are high-quality, locally grown products like Swank Farms greens and heirloom tomatoes, all-natural Black Angus beef and daily specials based on what's best in the market. . . just like a real restaurant.

From the fully equipped kitchen of their striking pastel

green-and-burning red truck, Simek and Cheatham are serving everything

from crabcake sliders with lemon-tarragon aioli and buttermilk fried

chicken sammies to breakfast burritos and hand-cut truffle fries. 


managed to be their first paying customer and chowed down on one of

those sliders (nice and crabby, tangy aioli), a mini-burger (as good as

any burger you'll get anywhere else) and a mojo pork taco (big chunks of

tender pork with pico de gallo and avocado). At Curbside's

prices--everything but a trio of sliders and Swank Farms salad is $7 or

less--that means you can get a lot of good, freshly made food for not a

lot of money.
