In 2008, Fort Lauderdale's Bimini Boatyard was sold. Chef Michael Bennet - a decorated veteran of Fort Lauderdale's Left Bank - was brought in to overhaul the menu, and the musty carpeting and worn dining room was ripped out and replaced with smooth hardwood floors and bright-blue seating. But does it matter what the dining room looks like or how many awards the chef has won? When I go to Bimini, it's not for ceviche (pre-made and terrible) or mango "coulis-grette" (watery) or however many tobacco onions you top your dishes with (they're soggy anyway). It's to sit on the docks and eat a fresh piece of grilled, Florida fish - snapper, grouper, mahi, or swordfish - which are still on the menu and still under $20 at lunch. As long as they leave that part intact, we're OK.
