When did Creolina's close?!

I'd planned to dine there last night after seeing The Dark Knight at the Imax in downtown Ft, Lauderdale, but found the place closed. Emptied out in fact, with nothing left but a little Zagat plaque in front.

I called their number today but no one answered.

One of my favorite places in the area. I reviewed it, in fact, for the Herald a few years back, posted here: http://www.wordsonwords.com/reviews/C...

Very sad. Had a wonderful dinner at Sublime instead. Still...

Anyone know anything?

  1. sign of the times, lots of restaurants are closing.

    1. Walked by couple days ago. Took a peek though the storefront, eveything was gone....

      I had such a good memory of the place...especially Rosie during the lunch shift! Where else can I get a decent crawfish, red bean & rice.

        1. Very sad . . . one of my favorite restaurants for lunch when I worked downtown. Food was always excellent and a fun atmosphere. And then there was Mary . . .

          1. Break out the Dixie and jambalaya - they're back!

            "Creolina’s, the New Orleans-style restaurant in Fort Lauderdale’s Himmarshee district, will reopen in Davie by September. Mark Sulzinski's new restaurant, Creolina’s Dixie Take Out, will be located at 13150 W. State Rd. 84 in the Randal Plaza."

            And Rosie's coming along.

              Sounds like we will have a new spot to hit on the way to the Bank Atlantic Center

                Great news! Not the greatest location, but whatever...
