If you haven't tried Christine's yet you should. I love this place. Great food, service, atmoshpere. It's the total package. Located on Oakland, it's the best kept secret in Ft. Lauderdale. Try it and let me know what you think.
I was there last week and we had a really good meal. The service was great (our waiter, Lev, was quite knowledgable -- turns out he's studying to be a somelier); A little jazz combo played by the (full) bar; the bar is separated from the dining room with a glass wall. We had for appetizers -- shrimp with polenta and also tried their crab cake. For entrees we had yellow tail snapper and their rib eye. would recommend each of these dishes. Plated imaginatively; served with panache;
Oh yes -- amuse bouche was really "amusing". A very tiny toast with chicken liver mousse pate on it. So cute!! And tasty, too...
They were just nominated best new restaurant in Broward by the New Times this past week...so they shouldn't be a "secret" for much longer!!
