    Classic Eats from the Boot

    It's dinnertime and you're driving along Oakland Park Boulevard east of I-95, lost in a beltway of insurance shops and tattoo parlors and curl-'n'-spray hair salons. You're starving. Out of the corner of your eye, you spot a nondescript, one-story bu...

    A Fired-up Kitchen

    Vincent Foti's 4-month-old Kitchenetta, just south of Oakland Park Boulevard, takes the same Neapolitan-inspired cuisine served at Salerno's and puts it through a wringer of fabulosity. No elastic waistbands here. High concept reigns in the flat-scre...

    The Steak Capital

    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

    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.,...

    Moos, Views

    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...
