DineOut Fort Lauderdale Recs?

I know this isn't until October, but my South Florida trip has me staying over a Friday night in FLL versus flying home. Since the trip is during the DineOut time this year, I'm curious in which of the participating restaurants would fellow hounds recommend trying.

The ones at first glance appeal for me both value for the $ 35 and food:

By Word of Mouth
Todd English's daCampo Osteria
3030 Ocean
Himmarshee Bar and Grill

Thoguhts, opinions, other recos?

Thanks in advance

    I would skip da Campo Osteria, Todd English basically just sold his name to them... and the service / food aren't great.

      I agree about da Campo. We ate there on New Year's Eve. We had great expectations. What a disappointment. The service was friendly but minor league. The food was medicore, at best. $400 later, we walked out feeling like we'd been had. I would never go back.

        Thanks Sobe4u and tuttobene for the review and comments. Leaning toward Himmarshee. Anyone been there?

          I happen to like Himmarshee a lot and their dine out menu is rather large. That's pretty nice!
