Visiting Ft. Lauderdale and need suggestions for Thanksgiving dinner and other nights too

My family and I are visiting the Ft. Lauderdale area over Thanksgiving from the metro NYC area (Thursday- Monday). We would like some recommendations as where we could enjoy a great Thanksgiving dinner, with out spending over $80 pp. We all enjoy food and wine and I was a Chef at one time.

We are open to suggestions from Miami to Boca, and do not necessarily need to have turkey….for example we might enjoy a great Cuban repast or other “ethnic” choices. Thanks in advance and Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

BTW, other restaurant recommendations are welcomed for the other days we are visiting too.

  1. Cafe La Buca in Pompano. Small, so you'll want a reservation pretty far in advance if its a good sized group.

    Only a few tables, run by a family from Naples (italy, not florida). Not really a set menu, but more of a "heres what i have tonight, what do you like?". excellent stuff. housemade pastas for the dishes.

    1. Theres a Thai resturant in north miami beach called Panya. Its extremely good!! Dont get spicy because its SPICY!! I usually get medium. Its the best Thai food ive ever had
