Over the Hump

Humperdinks surmounts political obstacles to bring another excellent outdoor-dining locale to South Florida

Oddly enough the one dish we didn't really enjoy was the "combo sandwich" for which the 200-seat place has been known since it opened: half sliced roast beef au jus, half Italian sausage, both served on a freshly baked French roll with sweet or hot peppers. The beef was too thoroughly done for our liking, and the sausage wasn't crisp enough. In a way, though, we appreciated that Humperdinks has changed and improved so much that one of its previous signature items no longer rates.

A root beer float for dessert sounds savory, but something about the tiki bar in the early evening begged us to indulge in some creamy strawberry cheesecake in the twilight. If you miss the bar, which closes around 10 p.m., adjourn to the sports/entertainment lounge for the same slate of desserts, plus a range of coffee-and-liqueur drinks, because only after you appreciate every single aspect of Humperdinks can you agree with another of James's favorite slogans: "We have a menu for every taste and a place for every mood." Now that, my friends, is very much about the South Florida I know, understand, and love.
