A unique new tapas restaurant opened in West Palm last week on the Clematis waterfront. 

The spot is called Tapeo and it's a two-story restaurant with a casual vibe to sip wine and dine downstairs and a white-tablecloth, traditional atmosphere upstairs. On the lower floor you'll find eye-catching art by New York graffiti artist Raul Rubio and on level two you can get incredible views from huge windows overlooking the downtown Waterfront Commons.

Tapeo is open for lunch and dinner offering a menu full of variety. The lunch menu includes plenty of salads priced $8.95 to $12.95, classic soups like lentil, gazpacho, and seafood, Spanish-style sandwiches for $12.95 and a selection of entrees featuring traditional rice dishes, pork chops and steaks.

The West Palm Brewery & Wine Vault, just two streets over from Clematis, is a place for beer and wine connoisseurs to enjoy in-house fermented beer, wine and delicious food.

The whole concept of this brewery is based on interaction. You can see the sealed fermentation tanks in the room behind the bartenders and you'll also notice chefs making food cooked to order from their original menu of small plates. This bar food isn't second-rate that's for sure; it's raved over by customers, as you can see from these Yelp reviews. The menu includes small pizzas, Charcuterie boards, Bavarian pretzels, sliders, wings and more. 

On the interior, the brewery has a modern industrial style with high top barrel-base tables, dropdown lighting fixtures and stone
