Eduardo de San Angel or ???

It will be cruise time again, and I am a huge EdSA fan. Will be traveling with a new companion, and would love to turn her on to one of my faves.

That being said, if there is a truly superior experience to be had that won't break the bank I'm open to suggestions.

Flying into FLL, will have wheels, so location is not an issue. We like to share small plates and split entrees.

TIA for your suggestions!

  1. Eduardo is still fantastic. Was just there recently and it didn't disappoint.

      Good to know! Must admit the pork belly appy has me leaning towards Johnny V, but EdSA is still at the top of the list. Love the room, love the flavors...

        IMHO, Johnny V's food sounds better than it tastes...Pretty mediocre. I think Eduardo de San Angel is still on of the best restaurants in the area.

          That is a good description. I've not had bad food there, but it doesn't quite deliver as well as the menu makes it sound..

            Thanks for that input... was thinking about a small plate crawl, winding up at EdSA. Maybe I will go back to the original plan.

            You can get pork belly almost anywhere in So Flo these days. You can't get authentic Mexican a la EdSA. Another suggestion if you like the 'belly, is a brand new spot in South Boca, not too far from FLL: Rebel House. Check it out!

        2. Calypso in Pompano for proper FL seafood, Basillic for good Thai/Viet cusine, I've heard good things about Sea also. Cafe Sharaku in Ft Lauderdale is a nice gem too.
