Recommendation - Ft Lauderdale (Plantation)

During our road trip to Florida it will be my husband's birthday. Lunch is sorted for that day as we have tickets for a Florida Panthers game, however I'm looking for somewhere to take him for the evening.

We're staying at the Renaissance in Plantation and I wondered if there was a good restaurant near there or within a 15 minute taxi journey? Nothing formal or stuffy because we're on a road trip so won't have suits/dresses etc.

We don't eat fish or seafood, and love traditional american food, great steak and Italian. And great cocktails....

I'm considering the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood as it is 7 miles away - does anyone have any thoughts / other suggestions?

Thanks everyone!

  1. Hard Rock should be a fun place if you don't mind going that bar

    1. Try Vignetos, I forget the adress but google can help you there. It was much better than hard rock, and it is NOT a chain.
