Tropical Smokehouse, the acclaimed West Palm Beach-based known for its authentic Florida craft barbecue, is gearing up to bring even more flavor to the city as it this summer is plans to open a second location, Tropical BBQ Market.

The new fast-casual concept, led by  owners Jason Lakow and pitmaster/chef Rick Mace, consists of a 1,900-square-foot space located at 206 Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL (the former space of Aioli). The space also will include an additional 600 square feet of bar area and available seating indoors (30 seats) and outdoors (20 seats).

The restaurant will be counter service and include the brand’s first-ever upscale deli market featuring  high-quality meats, salads and other menu items.

Tropical BBQ Market will present a menu loaded with signature items, such as Prime Brisket, Mojo Pork, Jackfruit, and Pulled Chicken fired up to on a smoke.The custom oven, which doesn’t run on gas or electricity, holds a large cook chamber and rotisserie with the capability of cooking up to 60 briskets. Each menu item will be available for dine-in and take-out, including empanadas, popular side dishes, core proteins and ready-to-heat sausage. Most order prices range between $14 to $17.

“Chef Mace and I had been wanting to expand on the Tropical Smokehouse ethos of delivering the best quality smokehouse dishes to the community, and in a timely and effective manner,” Lakow said. “Tropical BBQ Market not only allows diners to enjoy our delicious items in a fast-casual setting but also presents the opportunity to take home our signature menu items through our grab-and-go component. This is an exciting moment for the entire team.”
