In case you missed this week’s news about upcoming restaurants, breweries and food villages, here’s a round-up:
A new food and drink-centric district coming to West Palm Beach
The Warehouse District, a sprawling complex of vintage buildings near downtown West Palm Beach, is shaping up to be an eclectic urban village of food and beverage creators and vendors, artists, fitness buffs and other indie entrepreneurs. Developers say they hope to open sometime in December or January.
The food hall portion of this village is the brainchild of real estate developer Chris Vila, a transplanted New Yorker who envisions a Chelsea Market-type of place that provides locals with one-stop-food-shopping options. Vila says he’s secured 12 vendors, including Rabbit Coffee roasters and Celis Produce.

The new brewery is headed to The Warehouse District, a sprawling urban complex that’s now under construction in West Palm Beach’s industrial district.
