  1. The Westin Diplomat is in Hollywood. Are you trying to stay nearby or do you want to go to Ft. Lauderdale? Also, help us out with a little more info - what kind of food, price range, etc.

    1. You can take advantage of Miami Spice (summer price fix deal in Miami. see link below) and head to Timo, Chef Allen's or Bourbon Steak. They are about a 10 to 15 minute cab ride from the Diplomat.

      In Downtown Hollywood, I would recommend Lola's on Harrison or Fulvio's (Italian).
      For Cuban try Padrino's which is very close to hotel.

      If you are actually going to be in Ft Lauderdale for dinner let me know and I will provide some recs there.

      1. re: The Chowfather AKA sobe

        Fulvio's is just fine; ate there in May. as good as ever. do not eat in the steak house in the Diplomat. for a fun lunch, try Le Tub for a burger, 1 mile north of the Diplomat on the intercoastal.

      2. I recommend the lechon asado at Pancho's Backyard on Sheridan St. ( It will require a taxi ride, and it is in a strip mall with strip mall atmosphere, but the food is tasty. Whatever you do - DO NOT order the margarita...
