Looks like a tasty new opening for West Palm courtesy of clean plate Charlie
Seems like the place should be open 7 days a week courtesy of their facebook page.
looks cool and tasty full raw bar, trio of crabcakes, brisket tacos...I can’t wait to try it!

“ Clematis St. in West Palm Beach has a new addition: Welcome Longboards Restaurant and Bar, which will be celebrating its grand opening with complimentary food and drink Saturday, July 2, from 5 p.m. to midnight. “

“The latest venture for South Florida restauranteur Rodney Mayo -- of nearby establishments including Feelgood's Rock Bar, Respectables and Monarchy Night Club to name a few -- Longboards brings New England-style, fresh seafood with a casual, laid-back ambiance to West Palm Beach's downtown scene.“

“The menu specializes in organic and local produce, with seafood delicacies such as live Maine lobster and a decked-out raw bar. The restaurant will, of course, be offering a veritable plethora of local-caught fresh fish entrees, as well.

Don't be surprised to find your typical seafood favorites done up top-notch. Appetizers like "Trio of Cakes," a pairing of lobster tarragon, shrimp and chorizo, and jumbo lump crab cakes served alongside pepper butter, key lime aioli and lemon caper aioli ($14). Or the sumac-dusted fried calamari with cornmeal-encrusted vinegar peppers and chipotle aioli ($10).

Entrees offer everything from your classic catch of the day, chicken, pork and steak, to more off-beat items like the beef brisket tacos and a Wagyu beef hot dog.

But a new twist on oysters makes for an intriguing dish with Longboard's specialty carpetbagger oysters, served cornmeal-crusted with truffle whipped potatoes, duck proscuitto and a truffle ailoli ($12).

A must try on our minds: anything lobster! Especially the "authentic" New England-style lobster roll ($15), or lobster tacos topped off with avocado mousse and served with corn and radish salsa.

At the bar you'll find equally enticing creativity with a menu of house made mixes and fresh juice-infused cocktails. There will also be an extensive craft and specialty beer selection. “
