Any good restaurants near Museum of Discovery & Science in Ft. Lauderdale?
I'd love to go to a chow worthy place for dinner before going to this Museum. Any suggestions? Completely open to all cuisines! I am not familiar with the area whatsoever so could use a bit of guidance. Thanks so much!!!

to name a few . . .
Himmarshee Bar and Grill is probably the quality of the lot. Tarpon Bend is a good time and very good pub grub (best potato salad in Broward, IMHO). Porterhouse is inconsistent, trying too hard to be a steak house. Ugly Tuna is a frat boy good time, cheap drinks and rowdy behavior. Downtowner is decent bar food, good blues on weekends, excellent location for siting beside the river and watching the world go by.
Himmarshee has the advantage of being very close to the Museum, making parking easy and convenient.
