Northeast | Ponte Vedra Beach

Valley Smoke

11 S. Roscoe Blvd.
Ponte Vedra Beach

Best New

Classic BBQ and Southern comforts get a water view and a world of new playmates from owners Ben and Liza Groshell (nee Marker 32), who bring poutine, churrasco, venison jager schnitzel and burrata to the table. Traditionals get even better: VS fries, plenty of chicken — and livers, too — cured ham for pepper jelly biscuits, home-made chow-chow (encore, please) and hot links. Endless bourbon.
