Eating Out in Fort Lauderdale – Part 6
Fort Lauderdale has twenty three miles of smooth, silvery sand, tropical palms, blue seas and azure skies, plus more than 300 miles of inland waterways which boast sightseeing boat tours and water taxis. There are twelve major shopping malls for some retail therapy, innumerable speciality shops, and even an indoor flea market.
It also has over 3, 500 restaurants and in excess of 110 nightclubs, so there is something for everyone at a price to suit every pocket.
Fort Lauderdale has a huge number of restaurants serving fish and seafood, so it is good to find something a little different. Il Mulino is an Italian restaurant on East Sunrise Boulevard which has been serving traditional and homemade Italian food for over 20 years. The menu is easy to understand and has a glossary which explains all the speciality Italian pasta dishes.
There is freshly baked bread, and lots of dishes to choose from, including pizza and salad for around $12. At lunchtime there are small plates at around $5. 95 including bruschetta, fried calamari and fried mozzarella. There are plenty of salads including blackened tuna, grilled salmon and prosciutto and mozzarella, as well as a variety of sandwiches.
Pizzas are made in a brick oven and you can have them on whole wheat dough if you prefer. Pasta dishes at lunchtime are varied and include baked penne, penne Contadina, rigatoni alla vodka, fettucini Bolognese style, fettucini alfredo, four cheese ravioli or gnocchi marinara to name but a few. The fusilli natural, for example, comes with grilled chicken, broccoli, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts, balsamic vinegar reduction and goat cheese.
However, the menu is considerably expanded at dinner with 5 starters, a mozzarella bar, 6 salads and 10 specialities, such as chicken balsamico, veal parmigiana and chicken piccata. There are 24 home made pasta dishes and 12 brick oven pizzas to choose from.
Their home made pasta is made on the premises, as are all their sauces, dressings and desserts. They proudly boast of having no microwaves on the premises – which is a great thing!
As for desserts, well these wonderful home made desserts include tiramisu, bread pudding made with grand marnier, cannolo, nutellina and almond basket which is an oven baked almond crusted basket filled with gelato, fresh berries, and vanilla and raspberry sauce – delicious!
