Eating out in Fort Lauderdale – Part 3
Fort Lauderdale is called the Venice of the South, and it has wonderful beaches, dazzling blue skies, shimmering turquoise waters and a multitude of fantastic places to eat and drink. There truly is something for everyone in this vibrant city by the sea. Add to that, there are the beautiful Intracoastal Waterways which provide fantastic views from many of the outside areas of the restaurants of Fort Lauderdale. You will be spoilt for choice!
Bimini Boatyard Bar and Grill
It’s not actually a boatyard, it’s a waterfront restaurant which, as you would expect, serves delicious seafood and meats cooked on a Caribbean Wood-Fired Grill. Of course, the newly renovated patio bar is the perfect place to chill out in the sunshine of Fort Lauderdale, with fantastic views and a Happy Hour every day from 4 pm to 7 pm. It’s a gorgeous building, with a fabulous outside area.
As with most Fort Lauderdale restaurants, fish plays an important part on the menu. There is Salmon, Snapper, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Black Grouper, Yellowtail Snapper, Wahoo, Corvina and Cobia. The food has a taste of the Caribbean and most dishes come with a choice of two sides – sweet potato fries, Basmati rice, Asparagus, Broccolini, Baby Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Baked Potato, Shoestring French Fries and seasonal wood-fire grilled vegetables.
For the meat eaters there is steak, of course – Filet Mignon - plus BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Burgers and Herb Roasted chicken. Those who love pasta can choose various pasta dishes which can have chicken, mahi mahi, salmon or shrimp added to them.
There are starters galore ranging from Bahamian Conch Fritters, Florida Stone Crab Claws, Crispy Calamari, Lump Crab Cakes, Norwegian Smoked Salmon, Shrimp Cocktail, to name but a few.
Each day there is a different soup – New England Clam Chowder, French Onion, Tomato and Basil, Seafood Bisque, plus a range of salads. Don’t forget to try the amazing Bimini bread!
And if that is not sufficient, there are desserts aplenty – Key Lime Pie, Death by Chocolate, Mango Cheesecake, Tiramisu, Passion Fruit infused Crème Brule and the house-made chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich.
If you are around on a Sunday they have a fantastic Brunch for £32. 5 per person which features a seafood station, omelette station, carving station, pasta station, hot and cold stations, together with a variety of breads and amazing desserts. This price includes a complimentary bloody mary, mimosa or champagne. I can’t think of a better way to spend a hot, sultry Sunday than enjoying a wonderful Brunch at this restaurant.
