    Magic and Meat

    Some people might call it luck that the 9-month-old Chima Brazilian Steakhouse continues to attract customers to a lonely little shopping plaza down on Las Olas Isles. The site has been a restaurant heartbreaker since long before Il Tartufo took a tu...

    Lotsa Soul, Baby

    Jesse's Place (1395 W. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954-523-4774) bills itself as "a fine soul food restaurant." They got that right. The room is simply arranged, a dozen or so tables for two to the left, a counter for ordering and takeout to the ...

    The Painted House

    Henry Flagler established West Palm Beach to house workers who would build and staff the plutocratic palaces of the "real" Palm Beach. But then the area, which was never particularly well off, took a deep dive into drugs, drifters, prostitutes, McDon...

    High-Steaks Dining

    Where are we, in Riyadh?" I asked as we walked, and walked some more, from a distant parking spot to the all-white, multidomed, Saudi-styled Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Located on its own little 86-acre oasis (technically a "reservation" -- wi...

    Mexico, Jamaica, and... Pembroke Pines??

    Let's face it: Mexican-American restaurants are all pretty much the same. Sombreros on the wall. Margaritas. Chips and salsa. Rice and beans. Nachos, tacos, burritos, fajitas -- the whole enchilada. Santiago's Mexican Caf & Grill (17185 Pines Blvd.,...

    Taste del Sur

    El Cafetal Bakery (7649 Pines Blvd., Pembroke Pines, 954-964-7557), a humble Colombian market situated in the corner of a strip mall, is easy to pass by without notice -- until, that is, you've tasted its cooked-to-order, lip-smacking, Latin American...

    The United States, with its cowboys and cattle and wide-open West, has always been considered a serious beef-eating nation. Then again, carnivorousness is relative -- our American siblings down south in Argentina, with their gauchos and cattle and wi...

    Shooters Aims Higher

    Shooters has been a fixture on the Intracoastal in Fort Lauderdale for more than 15 years. It's a place where boaters, boozers, and bikini-clad beauties gather for waterfront vistas, live music, and affordable drinks. Although an informal menu of san...

    Dollars and Sense

    The Law on Raw - Shizen

    Peruvian Pluck in Pembroke
