B Ocean Fort Lauderdale Hotel announces that its casual eatery, B'stro, is open for service. Located on the hotel's first floor adjacent to the lobby, the Parisian-inspired bistro serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a menu by chef Holli Ugalde (of Hell's Kitchen, season seven).
Inside the minimalist, clean décor of B'stro, guests can enjoy a breakfast buffet ($15) or order items from the menu such as eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and citrus hollandaise ($14). Enjoy the artisanal breads and pastries, mostly prepared in-house.
Soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrées are offered for lunch and dinner -- like ahi tuna salad niçoise ($14), onion soup gratinee ($7), and marinated skirt steak with frites ($18).
Opposite the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean is the self-serve wine preservation system storing 24 global wines. The dispenser regulates temperature and offers varying portion sizes including tasting (1.5 ounce), sample (3 ounce), or full glass (5 ounce) that are purchased via a prepaid card.
For those craving a sampling of gourmet cheeses to accompany a glass of wine, choose from 11 artisan cheeses ranging from salty Spanish manchego to a bold and creamy blue cheese.
