When in search of love, there's always the romance capital of the world -- Paris, France. And, here in South Florida, there's always 33rd & Dine French Cafe
, a dine-in French restaurant in Fort Lauderdale that offers a full lunch and dinner menu.
While it won't promise wedding bells, a trip to 33rd & Dine will promise all the hot steaminess of a culinary love affair with the refined flavors of authentic French cuisine. Featuring a seductively delicious menu, 33rd & Dine brings a little je ne sais quoi to your dining experience.
Lauded for its truly authentic cuisine, 33rd & Dine's French-born chef/owner team, husband-and-wife Holland and Ketia Emmanuel, have crafted a menu of upscale eats.
Our tip: Try the crepes. Though many have been led to think otherwise, crepes are not just dessert -- at 33rd & Dine, they also make hearty meals. The Emmanuels' crepes prove to be the perfect delicate blanket to embrace savory fillers, with options like the Francilienne with chicken breast, onions, sautéed mushrooms, and cream sauce; the St. Tropez, with mixed seafood, mushrooms, garlic, and white wine sauce; or the Bourguignonne, with escargots, mushrooms, tomato, and garlic sauce.
Other tasty options include the beefsteak with shallot sauce, decadent shrimp scampi, fillet of salmon with ratatouille and bearnaise sauce, and the medallion of pork tenderloin with pineapple, mango, and mint leaf sauce. 33rd & Dine also features a variety of unique salads, sandwiches, traditional dessert crepes, homemade ice cream, and sinful classic French pastries.
Best of all, 33rd & Dine is our Deal of the Day
. Act now, get today's deal of $20 worth of food and drinks for just $10.
