So Fra, So Good

A liberal hand with the liquor means culinary magic at this Italian eatery

If Fra Diavolo's fondness for liquored-up recipes isn't obvious just by reading the list of entrées (11 dishes out of 22 contain some sort of spirit), get a load of, and loaded on, the desserts: The tiramisu is soaked in amaretto, and the house special is whiskey cake. We went with a heady Italian rum cake and a slice of ricotta-rich cheesecake that was flavored with triple sec.

All in all, as it turned out, it was a good thing we'd done a large portion of the driving around before we found Fra Diavolo. Had we been pulled over for cruising aimlessly around Lauderhill after dinner, I doubt the police officers would have believed we'd been sucking on sweets instead of bottles.
