Best Greek Restaurant Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2009 - Ouzo Blue

The dance of the seven veils makes a fine diversion, but no belly-wobbling, sphinx-eyed siren can stop a hungry stomach from staging its own entertainment: Sometimes you really want spectacular spanikopita rather than smashed crockery and drop-dead dolmades instead of dancing dames. Ouzo Blue provides the sustenance to maintain your mood with classic Greek dishes straight out of Chef Otis Giakis' mama's recipe files. Smoky spit-roasted lamb is stuffed into an insanely soft pita with yogurt as thick as cheese for a fabulous gyro; oversized dolmades dress a super-rich filling of minced lamb and spiced rice in a swaddling of sour grape leaves; a secret recipe of jumbo shrimp with warm spices arrives, like all Ouzo's entrées, with a side of addictive green beans stewed with tomatoes — just the kind of fuel you need to carry you through the rest of the evening, because you won't be going anywhere. By 10 p.m., the party crowd has drifted in to quaff Ouzo's Greek-themed cocktails, flirt, toss napkins in the air, and shake booty with the belly dancers — order the pistachio-studded baklava for a late-night energy boost and you'll be hoofing it on a table by midnight.

Ouzo Blue just knows how to do the whole thing right! Their food is by far the best authentic Greek around! I've eaten at Opa and it is pale in comparison! They also allow you to dine in an atmosphere that makes you feel like your sitting on the beaches of Santorini! It's so loud at Opa early that I can't even get close enough to the waiter to tell him my order. Ouzo Blue's bellydancers are 100x's better than any of the Greek Restaurants around! They are beautiful works of art and help to create the perfect atmosphere for drinks, dining, and dancing! No Greek attitude there (Ouzo Blue) either! The service has been impeccable at both their locations every time I've dined there! Thanks Ouzo Blue for perfecting the Greek Restaurant!!!Jamie
