South Shores gastropub Cooks up Gourmet Man-Food on Culinary Tour

South Shores Tavern & Patio Bar, a popular locally owned gastropub, has been in Downtown Lake Worth, Florida for more than a decade. Situated at the corner of Lucerne Avenue and L Street in the LULA Arts District, South Shores takes the common meal then deconstructs it only to be re-invented as gourmet man-food.
 
The cuisines at South Tavern are packed with flavor oftentimes using local ingredients and the highest grade of meats.  They offer a thick breakfast, a fulfilling lunch and hearty dinner.  Some of the popular menu items featured on the Taste History Culinary Tour are the Fat Rooster Deluxe, Grilled Steak & Brie Cheese Nachos Appetizer, Eggs Benedict Re-invented and the Super-sized French Toast with a splash of Citrus.

The "gastropub" concept originated in the 1980s in London, England when a local bar decided to revive their image by adding high quality meals.  The word "gastropub" was subsequently coined in 1991.
