Fort Lauderdale RestaurantsAre you wondering which restaurants you just can’t miss in Fort Lauderdale? We don’t blame you. When you’re in town for only a short time, you want to make each dinner count. Therefore, let our crew at Carl’s Van Rentals share with you three of the top-rated restaurants Fort Lauderdale has to offer.

1. La Brochette Bistro

Open for dinner only, La Brochette Bistro in Hollywood, FL, offers a unique culinary flair. The food has influences from France, the Middle East, Scandinavia, and of course, right here in Florida. Menu items include Baked French Brie Cheese in puff pastry with fig jam, pan-seared Chilean seabass, grilled black angus skirt steak frites, and much more. Combined with great ambience, this restaurant may make a great date night destination.

2. Thai Spice

Good Thai food isn’t always easy to come by, but Thai Spice has made it into an art form. In fact, this Fort Lauderdale restaurant was the first Thai restaurant in the world to get the “Five Star Diamond Award” from The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. Go see what all the fuss is about, and enjoy everything from their wonton soup or green curry chicken to the Siam duck or volcano shrimp.

3. Valentino Cucina Italiana

Are you in Florida celebrating an anniversary or another special occasion? Then Valentino Cucina Italiana is your special occasion dining destination. While a bit cha-ching, the food and atmosphere will not disappoint. Touting “innovative cuisine with a modern Italian twist,” you can expect great service and tasty dishes like butternut tortellini, ricotta cavitelli, and roasted duck breast. However, be sure to call ahead and make a reservation.
