Four of Our Favorite Ft. Lauderdale Restaurants

Tim Elmes

It’s good to be going out again.

Creative, diverse, and always delicious, the Fort Lauderdale restaurant scene is poised for a major comeback in 2021.

 Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations are upon us! Your family may be ready to venture out for a restaurant celebration. These establishments are a few favorites of the Elmes Group, whether you're eating-in or taking-out.

Heritage, 903 5th Ave., Fort Lauderdale

Raising the bar on Italian offerings, this cozy upscale eatery brings a New York vibe and stellar craftsmanship to all of their creations. Hands down, some of the most amazing dishes you’ve ever tried and superb, very attentive service. Come hungry, as you will want to order everything on the menu, from appetizers to desserts.

Coconuts, 429 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale  

Relaxed, beachy hangout on the Intracoastal, dishing seafood & Sunday brunch while yachts cruise by. Be sure to order appetizers for everyone, including the grilled jerk wings, oysters, and hot salted shrimp. The specialty cocktails are coolly refreshing and don't forget to treat yourself to the key lime pie.

Osteria Acqua e Farina, 1145 S Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale 

A casual-pizzeria version of the celebrated Valentino's Cucina Italiana. Wood-fired pizzas, fresh pastas & paninis are all served with wine in a relaxed, white-tablecloth space. The portions are generous, the pours are just right, and there’s a pizza for everyone’s taste. Don't miss the thin-sliced fried and layered eggplant when you go! 

Quarter Deck, 1035 SE 17th St., Fort Lauderdale

A local chain that dishes up hearty American fare, tacos & more. Dine amid many TVs & beach-themed decor. A favorite place for brunch! We love the Bark Brunch, where your pup is welcome to join you while you enjoy a special Tito's Handmade Vodka drink menu. During this event, Pets Broward is also 
on hand with adoptable dogs from 
Broward County Animal Care.
