Catching a Flight
Flight 19, 1103 E Las Olas Blvd., 954.451.5128, flight19ftl.com
It’s named for the doomed flight that took off from Fort Lauderdale and gave the Bermuda Triangle its reputation – but there’s no mystery in this ethos of fresh food, delicious cocktails and proudly local ambiance. They serve local coffee by Switchbox and bakery goods by Gran Forno. Entrees include margarita half chicken (oven-roasted lime and tequila-marinated chicken with crispy salt skin served with blistered green beans) and Mr. G’s Pork Tenderloin (grilled Dijon beer-marinated tenderloin served with sweet potato carrot mash).
