Restaurants in Fort Lauderdale
A funky 24/7 diner that remains a shrine to kitsch, down to the "Champagne room," with a chandelier and pinup photos of Marilyn Monroe.
Health-minded sea grill
Founded in 1928 by legendary bootlegger Eugene "Cap" Knight, this former gambling den and supper club is a ramshackle assortment of atmospheric wooden shacks, a lackadaisical affair decorated with images of old Florida that serves a mean house smoked-fish dip.
This trendy celebrity-magnet restaurant's organic and vegan menu continually wins converts—especially for the piccata with lemon-caper sauce.
Asian-inspired dining room
The sleek centerpiece of the newly upscale north beach area, Trina, located in Starwood's Atlantic Hotel, is the brainchild of consulting chef Don Pintabona—formerly of Manhattan's Tribeca Grill—who creates Mediterranean-influenced dishes like tagine-baked Florida grouper with almond couscous.
