Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale: Top Accommodations
Explore beyond the palm dotted beaches and Venetian-style waterways that front the ocean and you will discover an equally tempting food scene in Fort Lauderdale. Infused by the influx of cruise liners from the Carribbean, Mexico and further afield, the gastronomy scene is as happening as the nightlife. Here's where to dine:
1. Hyde Beach Kitchen
Lobster rolls and sea views make the perfect brunch at Hallandale Beach's hip and happening waterside food mecca. Al fresco dining with friends is sophisticated and the seafood is ultra fresh, just like the sounds coming from the DJs who play here on weekends. Cheeky cocktails and lobster mac 'n' cheese have clients scrambling for seats.
Yachts sail silently by this celebrated seafood restaurant which has some of the friendliest staff in Fort Lauderdale. It's not just the servers who are welcoming though, the fish tacos, jambalaya and mahi sandwiches will make your stomach sing. Go easy on the spice and don't forget to order a refreshing root soda.
If chic cuisine and sashimi appeal then Kuro should too. This foodie favourite is elegant and serves contemporary Japanese food designed by chefs Alex Becker and Shuji Hiyakawa. Locally sourced ingredients make the wagyu tacos and seabass miso some of the most delectable mouthfuls you will ever enjoy.
