If you're looking for all the games they play in Las Vegas, you'll have better luck at one of the Seminole casinos (or, you know, Las Vegas). If you're looking for a taste of the swanky, martini-in-hand, expensive-cigar, high-roller lifestyle, there's only one place in South Florida. Isle of Capri just spent more than $100 million to make what was an anachronistic harness track full of degenerates into the finest upscale gambling parlor in the tricounty region. The slots are diverse and plentiful, the simulcast betting opportunities abundant, and the comforting wooden walls and high-tech tables in the poker room make it seem more like a captain's lounge than a casino. For booze, there are no fewer than four bars. Food patrons can have a pastrami sandwich and an egg cream at Myron's or a steak and cognac at Farraddays'. It's not the Bellagio, but it's as close as it gets down here.

I have travelled all over the world and I find The Isle of Capri a little paradise. Besides being a clean and beautiful place to gamble you cannot starve. The Buffet has a tremendous variety of foods all quite delicious. I give credit to Chef Raul for running a tight ship. As mentioned in the article, Myrons is such a fun place to eat, almost like being in NY and Farraddays' is by far a very beautiful and glamourous restaurant with excellent food. Dominique the manager is a charmer!
