These new restaurants, cafes, diners and food trucks opened in 2022 on the Treasure Coast

The Treasure Coast restaurant industry boomed in 2022, bouncing back from the hardships many took throughout the coronavirus pandemic. 

About 100 new restaurants opened in Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties this year, including coffee shops, dessert shops, ice cream parlors, food trucks, live music venues and bars serving craft beer, cocktails and sake. 

The new restaurants specialize in an array of different cuisines, including French, Italian, Canadian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Asian — especially Thai and Japanese — as well as Southern, soul food and American comfort food. Even the Latin restaurants span the region, including Mexican, Cuban, Haitian, Honduran and Peruvian.

More healthy choices came on the scene too, such as vegan, keto, kava, gluten free, acai bowls and protein shakes and smoothies. Salads, crepes and seafood are the star of some new restaurants.

Whether you’re looking for fast food; everyday restaurants serving breakfast, lunch and dinner; or fine dining for special occasions, there’s probably a new restaurant on the Treasure Coast to suit your needs.
