Curbside Gourmet to Start Truckin' in West Palm Beach

Jumping on the ever-growing food truck bandwagon is Curbside Gourmet, the creation of former TV-movie caterer and private chef Rick Simek and culinary school graduate Mary Cheatham, who aim to put the now way-trendy farm-to-table ethos on four wheels. 

The duo's truck, outfitted with a complete professional kitchen at the cost of $100,000, is expected to roll into West Palm's Rybovich Marina later this week for a soft opening, before deploying at four different West Palm locations throughout the day on a regular rotation.

To help customers "get over the impression of a roach coach," Simek says

that Curbside Gourmet will focus on using as many fresh, local products

as possible, from heirloom tomatoes to Swank Farm greens, as well as

all-natural poultry and Black Angus beef. 

Simek and Cheatham's

truck, the first such mobile kitchen in Palm Beach County, will be open

for breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.  

The

morning menu features Greek-style yogurt with home-made granola and

fruit, a breakfast burrito and frittata of the day, while midday

offerings include Swank Farms salad, crabcake sliders with tarragon

aioli, mojo pork tacos, and Angus and turkey burgers with hand-cut

fries. Prices are pocket-friendly too, with the costliest item a trio of

crabcake sliders for $10.
