Any suggestions? We save Friday night for Martini night, but are running out of places that have both good drinks and good food. One of our favorites has been Bonefish Grill, but since they closed the Plantation location, we hate driving all the way to Coral Springs. Any ideas in the Ft. Lauderdale area??

        Blue Martini @ The Galleria has great martinis and pretty good tapas style type food if you're not looking for an actual meal.

          I love the Blue Martini! Didn't know they serve food but they always have the best bands!

          Seasons 52 also in The Galleria is very good.

          Favorites on Las Olas:

          Big City Tavern
          Jackson's Steakhouse
          Cafe Europa
          Samba Room
          Mancini's
          Marks

          Not on Las Olas:

          Bistro Mezzoluna (17th Street)
          15 Street Fishery (waterway)
          Southport Raw Bar (Cordova off 17th)
          Charley's Crab (waterway)
          Arubas (on the ocean)

          And my absolute hands down favorite anywhere:

          Cafe Martorano (plan for a long wait and $$$$$)

              That is such dangerous information! I did NOT need to to know that!

              Menu looks delicious! Thanks!
