Some of my favorite places…
Southport Raw Bar – We love the ‘old bay shrimp’ and the key lime pie. You can boat up to the back. Casual atmosphere.
101 Ocean – Right by the ocean. I always get the flat breads. Fun night spot. Especially Friday & Saturday nights. You can bring your dog…or bird if you sit outside. Casual atmosphere.
Village Grille – I like the Mahi Sandwich here and it’s right beside the beach. They also opened a little sushi joint on the corner and have a great 1/2 off selected rolls during happy hour. Dogs allowed outside. Casual atmosphere.
ROK:BRGR – Good burgers and a nice alternative downtown. Kitchen open late. Casual atmosphere.
Canyon – Everything here is good. My favorites are the Tuna Tartare and the Bread Pudding dessert but I eat here all the time. Known for the Prickly Pear Margarita that is made from cactus fruit. Proper attire required.
Rocco’s Tacos – Go here for location and guacamole. They have a seasonal Rock Shrimp Taco that ‘Rocs’. Great new place to see & be seen. Casual/dressy attire.
Big City Tavern – I go here for late night bar. Great staff and food. On Las Olas so great people watching. Casual/dressy attire.
Grateful Palate – Super cute place. Bar & dining South Beach Style but without the crowd. Proper attire required.
Coco’s Asian Bistro – One of the best sushi places around to me. Great dining room and friendly staff and solid food. Proper attire required.
Blue Moon Fish Company – Great Sunday brunch. Pricey but a favorite in Ft. Lauderdale for years and on the water! Proper attire required.
Cafe Maxx – Everyone loves the food here. Chef Oliver always comes through with something amazing. They do plenty of wine tasting dinners. Give it a try! Proper attire required.
Kitchenetta – All I can say is meatballs….meatballs….meatballs. Casual environment.
YOLO – These guys have the monopoly on their corner. Restaurant, O Lounge (quaint spot with DJ) & VIBE (nightclub) all in a quarter of a block. Also on Las Olas so you can walk around. Park your Ferrari out front….. Proper attire required.
STOUT – Irish sports bar with good food and 28 TV’s. Brand new and beautiful inside. Casual environment.
