melbourne, ft lauderdale - where to go

jdwoods Apr 23, 2008 02:59 AM

I have a night in both melbourne and ft lauderdale.
I would love some suggestions of places to go for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks, etc...
I am planning on going to Le Tub to try the infamous burger but is there anything else worth trying?
I am interested in nearly all cuisines and would try anything from a whole-in-the-wall to a fancy-sit-down restuarant...
please let me know of your suggestions!
thank you

          To qualify my thread,the folks that usually work on it are traveling with work.

          Yes,some of the places are closed.

          Phone calls are always a good bet.

          The list helps with geography,as most of them have been local standards for quite awhile.

          The alternate chowhound post, mostly touches on some of the "cutting edge" new restaurants in town.

          As happens with many like that,they are already gone,changed owners,chef moved,etc.

          If we know a specific location,we are much better able to give rec.

        I'd be careful of the list cited in Tom's reply; some of those places are out of business.

        Where are you staying in Melbourne. While the city isn't that wide East-to-West, it does run a good 15-20 miles North-to-South, which could mean a lot of driving.

          Reference Melbourne,here is a pretty good start,depending on your location.

          It is in a county about 80 miles long,without any really distinct cities.
