Festive Latin restaurant serving the essentials plus Spanish specialties.
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.

Chef Matteo Migliorini brings his talent and love for fine dining to this northern Italian bistro. The authenticity of the restaurant stems from the cooking traditions of Migliorini’s native north.

Menu items include Ravioli All’Aragosta (Maine lobster ravioli and pink sauce) and Scaloppine al Gorgonzola (veal scaloppini, gorgonzola, sun dried tomatoes, demi-glace sauce and roasted fingerling potatoes).

France is known for its grand boulevards, and now French cuisine has come to Le Boulevard du Commercial. As the name indicates, you can sample escargot made the French way, cooked in a garlic butter broth. Of course if that’s not your thing, plenty of other Gallic tastes are also on offer. Finish off your meal with the chef’s specialty dessert: the Mille Feuilles d’Escargot, a unique take on the traditional puff pastry garnished with whipped cream and jam.
This elaborate confection of waterfalls, gardens and thatched roofs along U.S. 1 has been around so long that things Polynesian are once again hip.

Chef Giacomo offers Northern Italian cuisine with a twist: mushroom strudel and crusted eggplant parmigiana. More traditional fare includes veal Marsala, homemade ricotta & spinach ravioli, and cappellini filetto di pomodoro.
Caribbean zest rules at this restaurant located right next to Funky Buddha Brewery. This food spot offers huge portions with a Haitian twist on dishes such as oxtail, fried fish and curry goat.

The brewery’s Oakland Park taproom recently launched its Craft Food Counter and Kitchen. Chef Jeff Vincent has come up with a menu that mixes down home with uptown – it’s bar food, but not as you might know it.

This small, warm restaurant named for the artist Frida Kahlo enhances the typical Mexican menu with some harder-to-find dishes like chochinita pibil (roasted Mayan pork leg marinated in achiote citrus juice), fish Veracruz style and shrimp mole verde. The tortillas, like the guacamole, are homemade.
Mexican food gets an upscale makeover at owner and Chef Eduardo Pria’s award-winning eatery. Featured in Bon Appetit, Gourmet Magazine, and on the Food Network, Pria denounces typical tacos and boring burritos for more authentic fare such as guajillo chile-spiced black bean soup, pan-seared Florida Keys yellowtail crusted in toasted almonds and thyme, and achiote-rubbed pork loin with honey-pasilla chile glaze. And it’s not always offered, but if Pria is making his cilantro soup when you visit, be sure to order a bowl.
The owners have come a long way from New York, and we don’t blame them. Fort Lauderdale’s more of a seafood town, anyway. This unique walk-up kitchen and outdoor dining concept is perfect for socially distanced dining. Menu items include New England-style lobster clambakes (steamed fresh lobster, clams, shrimp, mussels, corn on the cob and potato), fish fry baskets, buckets of mussels or clams, sandwiches, pasta and more.
