New Restaurants in Indian River County – June 2024

Welcome to the dynamic culinary scene of Indian River County, Florida, where five new locally-owned eateries have recently debuted, enriching our diverse foodie landscape. Among these newcomers, we have an All American Tap Café, a revamped Asian bistro that has undergone a stunning transformation of its space, a chic cocktail & dessert lounge, a highly anticipated downtown restaurant launch after nearly two years of meticulous preparation, and finally a “Twist” on new Mexican style cuisine. Supporting these independent businesses is vital for our local economy, ensuring that the money we invest in dining out directly benefits our community, supports local families, and enhances our gastronomic adventures.
