What are the best places to eat in Fort Lauderdale?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The creative menu at Blue Moon Fish Co. is peppered with Caribbean accents, and the elegant, Art Deco-tinged interior and waterside patio are usually packed with a crowd of locals celebrating special occasions or enjoying delectable seafood dishes such as the peppercorn-crusted big-eye tuna and soy Chilean sea bass served with Asian stir fry. This seafood lover’s paradise is set right on the Intracoastal Waterway on the east side of the bridge. Show up hungry for the all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch — it brims with shrimp, shucked oysters, steamed mussels, pancakes, omelets and more.

Casa D’Angelo is one of the most talked-about Italian restaurants in South Florida, so don’t even try to show up on a weekend night without reservations. The restaurant has Corinthian columns and creamy stucco walls, but as nice as the décor is, your focus should be on the menu. Entrées include a delicious array of pastas — such as lasagna with homemade mozzarella and Parmigiano—Reggiano cheese, or porcini mushroom risotto — and a selection of fish, chops and steaks, all prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients. The 500-bottle Italian and Californian wine list includes many gems under $50.
