A New York-style deli during the day and bistro during the night – Kraft offers the best of both worlds. The deli (open from 11am-4pm) has got all you would expect, plus some unexpected items like the Adult Grilled Cheese (fontina, swiss, cheddar, mozzarella cheeses, bacon and onion on jam rye bread) and the Gangster specialty sandwich (salami, capicola, ham, pepperoni, lettuce, tomato, onions, fresh mozzarella, hot and sweet peppers and Italian dressing on a hoagie roll). The bistro (open from 4-10pm) features dishes like the Moroccan Chicken (tender chicken marinated with North African spices, dried fruit, garbanzo beans and veggies served over couscous) and the Steak Diane (beef tenderloin medallions, mushrooms and brandy demi-glace with a touch of cream served with mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach).
It’s hard for Fort Lauderdale locals to imagine a summer without taking a dip in the water…well, what about their bagels? Known for a 14-step water filtration process that goes into its authentic Brooklyn-style bagels and coffee, Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. has officially opened its second Fort Lauderdale location. In addition to bagels and coffee, menu items include breakfast and deli sandwiches, baked goods, omelets and “baninis” – bagel paninis, naturally.
This tapas-style restaurant is more casual than its sister restaurants in the growing Angelo Elia empire, but it still provides first-class elegance and healthy portions of both light and hearty Italian fare. Tapas range from familiar to exotic: buffalo mozzarella with prosciutto di Parma, tempura zucchini flowers with mozzarella, and grilled provolone over radicchio. Escarole and beans with roasted sweet Italian sausage is full of flavor, and every pizza is delicate and thin-crusted, just like you’d find in Napoli. Try the basilico bruschetta, served in traditional style with diced tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, and pair it with a bold bottle of red Tuscan wine.
