from the beaches of Palm Beach
Back by popular demand, this coming Sunday, May 20th will signal the return of Meat Market’s wildly popular Signature Steak Sunday. Every Sunday this summer, you can enjoy a selection of Executive Chef/Co-Owner Sean Brasel’s Signature Steaks at half price. Options include 16 ounce Chicago Prime New York (full or half); 12 ounce filet mignon (full or half); 16 ounce Prime Ribeye; the Meat Market steak – 16 ounce Prime Picanha with Habanero Chimichurri (full or half); or the Creative Steak of the Day.
My favorite is the prime rib-eye topped with either seared foie-gras or roasted prime bone marrow….. but of course you can choose from other succulent additions such as a 6 ounce lobster tail; Oscar-style with blue crab and béarnaise; and black truffle butter. Signature Steak Sunday will be offered to guests in the dining room, as well as those sitting at the bar and lounge. Not to be combined with any other offers and not available for to-go orders.
Meat Market, located at 191 Bradley Place in Palm Beach, serves dinner nightly. For reservations, please call (561) 354-9800. For more information, visit www.meatmarket.net.

Gracida Wines and Meat Market host kick off for 2nd Annual Equine Salute Invitational
Carlos Gracida Jr. and Mariano Gracida, the two sons of Polo legend Carlos Gracida, along with their business partner and founder of the Arion Group, Nick Valenta are ready to launch the much anticipated Gracida Wines in Palm Beach. The celebratory event will take place at Meat Market Palm Beach on February 8th, from 6-8 pm. and will serve as the Palm Beach kick-off for the upcoming 2nd Annual Equine Salute Invitational, scheduled Feb. 23. ‘Carlitos’ ‘Nano’ and Nick will also take this opportunity to introduce the Gracida Legacy Foundation, whose mission is to enrich the lives of community youth through a love of horsemanship and role models dedicated to instilling leadership skills, discipline, and a champion mentality.
Carlos Gracida Legacy grows to 4th Generation
A third generation of polo player, Carlos Gracida Sr. launched The Gracida Polo brand in 2011. The late legendary player and reportedly Queen Elizabeth’s favorite player, was ranked 10 goals internationally for 15 consecutive years. After his tragic accident in 2014, the responsibility fell on Carlitos and Nano who along with their buddy turned business partner, Nick Valenta, changed the name to Gracida Legacy and have carried the torch since.
Gracida Wines added to Meat Market Wine List
After three years of research and multiple wine tastings across the globe, the Gracida boys went back to their Spanish roots and chose La Mancha wine region to produce their three wines- a sparkling light rose, a chardonnay and a Tempranillo Gran Reserva. Launched in 2017, and familiar to the equine Wellington community, the wines will now be available at Meat Market Palm Beach. “
“It’s difficult to find wines of this quality without a big price tag. The Gracida wines are affordable, and well-made quality wines for everyday drinking, representative of the Spanish wine culture. They are wines you can suggest to guests looking for a great bottle but not wanting to leave their life savings on the table. I’m excited to add these wines to our wine list,” says Jonathan Negrin, Wine Sommelier of Meat Market, “Get ready to enjoy good wine, this is only the beginning for these boys, with their heart, and passion it will only get better and better!
“I thought creating Gracida wines would be perfect for the Gracida lifestyle brand. It not only honors the four generations of horsemen that the name represents, but also, at our price point, everyone can enjoy it and experience the polo lifestyle with each sip,”says Nick Valenta.

Wine Pairing Dinner

Have you noticed more people walking around wearing red sneakers? It may be because of a young boy named Oakley Debbs.
If you ever met Oakley Debbs, you would have thought what a great kid he was. 11 years old, he attended Rosarian Academy in West Palm Beach. He was a straight-A student, and a loving son and brother to his twin sister Olivia. He had an infectious smile, and he loved playing soccer and football
Late last year, while on vacation with his family, Oakley accidentally ate a piece of cake containing nut resin. Oakley’s parents knew he had a nut allergy, and had always been vigilant about his health, his allergy, and the asthma they managed. Oakley had developed blisters on his lips, so they gave him Benadryl. He seemed fine. In the hours after, though, his body went into anaphylactic shock, and he never recovered. The tragedy of Oakley’s death is unfathomable. Not least because it could have been prevented had the family known how to recognize the signs of a severe food allergy reaction and given him his epi-pen immediately.
Shortly after his passing, his family started Red Sneakers for Oakley, named after his favorite shoes. They knew right away they had to get the word out and spread awareness about food allergies so that no other parent or community need suffer a similar loss.
Their first awareness event was a community soccer game at the Palm Beach Recreation Center where hundreds of children came out to honor Oakley in a soccer jamboree wearing red sneakers. What was truly amazing about the turnout was that even families who don’t have food allergies showed up to express their support of the need for better education of the real dangers of food allergies.
At another recent event, just last month, families of Rosarian Academy participated in an Awareness Day with informational booths as well as carnival games and rides for the children. Over 400 people attended.
The Mission of Red Sneakers for Oakley
The mission of Red Sneakers for Oakley is to empower families and communities with the tools and information to better protect their children. In just 8 weeks, Red Sneakers for Oakley gained 7,500 followers on Facebook, with an average weekly reach of 40,000, and a growing audience of a combined 100,000+ across all their social media accounts.
One of their Calls to Action is to ask people to wear red sneakers to promote the movement and food allergy awareness, to take photos and to post on social media platforms. And it’s working. Red Sneakers for Oakley has truly galvanized an online movement that did not exist before.
The Red Sneaker symbol is a simple one, but it is resonating with millennials and Gen X’ers alike. Red Sneakers for Oakley has received thousands of messages and posts from people all over the world. They are also receiving testimonials from parents who might otherwise have suffered a tragic incident with their own child had they not heard Oakley’s story.
The dangers of food allergies may be known to parents of children who have them, but many people overlook the severity of them. Have you ever witnessed people questioning whether an “allergy mom” is being overly cautious at a play date? It happens all the time. Red Sneakers for Oakley hopes to change that attitude. It only takes one bite for a child with allergies to potentially have a life-threatening, fatal reaction.
That is the heart and soul of Red Sneakers for Oakley: Children and their communities rallying to make sure everyone understands the true severity of what some people call the allergy epidemic in America.
More than 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. Yet there is a widespread lack of awareness and confusion surrounding how to respond properly to anaphylactic reactions.
The road ahead is still daunting as Red Sneakers for Oakley hopes to grow its reach into the millions and raise much-needed funds for awareness programs. Somehow, somewhere, the Debbs family finds the strength and courage to keep promoting their cause, but they can’t do it without you.
