Although our journey into the culinary world tends to focus on West Palm Beach and South County, there is an amazing food scene developing just to the north as well. No, I’m not talking about Orlando, though our next experience in the world of foodie fun will be happening there this coming weekend. I’m referring to Jupiter.
Located in the Harborside Place development, which has been on the news as of late due to their live music venue, lies Calaveras Cantina. This nearly waterfront restaurant provides visitors with a glimpse into the world of Mexican cuisine that you don’t find everyday.
At it’s helm is Chef Curtis Peery.
In 2014, I decided to open Calaveras Cantina in my hometown of Jupiter, Florida. Thelocation had what we were looking for and although it was small, our team has made the space work and we are grateful to have such a loyal following!
And, thanks to a wonderful team, our business continues to grow year after year. We continue to offer high-quality, fresh and innovative cuisine. We are also gaining a greater number of repeat customers, which is what every restaurateur strives for! Today we are thankful to be running an amazing restaurant that everyone (including us!) love.
Can you tell us a little more about your restaurant? Calaveras Cantina is a family owned business in the heart of Jupiter, FL. Located in Jupiter’s newest shopping destination, Harbourside, we are known for sexy Mexican cuisine and fresh, handcrafted cocktails. Right now, we have close to 80 employees. I am very proud of our team and how the restaurant has grown. However, what I am most proud of is when I am able to promote a, “line level” employee to management. To me, it’s very gratifying to see someone start a career in a business that I helped create and keep moving up the ranks.
We’d like to thank Amy Junk of JLM Communications for helping us to get the answers we were looking for, and Chef Curtis Peery for sharing his passion for cooking with our readers. We look forward to working with him in the future.
If you’re a local chef whose cuisine matches up to the best out there, we’d love to talk to you. Contact us and perhaps you can be the next celebrity chef!
