Beauty & the Feast Hopes to Lure Locals Back to the Beach
Reclaimed wood and brick, Edison bulbs, tufted leather booths, small plates, and an emphasis on "craft" seem to be the main ingredients for a trendy restaurant these days. Set in the base of the boutique Atlantic Resort & Spa on Fort Lauderdale Beach, Beauty & the Feast Bar|Kitchen is perfectly "on trend." With a menu based on sharing — it offers everything from Asian-inspired chicken sliders to an entire suckling pig — the spot aims to offer a fresh and interesting way to dine on the beach, adding to a slew of new concepts that are starting to form a burgeoning scene.
But can it bring the locals back to the beach?
