Closer Look: Himmarshee Public House in Fort Lauderdale
Wednesday, December 4, 2013 | 1 year ago
A few years back, Fort Lauderdale's Himmarshee Street was a bustling downtown area filled with restaurants, bars, and entertainment. But lately, aside from places catering to the 1 a.m. bar crowd, much of the area has been left behind as a destination. Between the economic decline and migration to Las Olas Boulevard, the local office lunch crowd — and even evening diners — have disappeared from many of the downtown eateries.
Marc Falsetto, owner of Rok:Brgr, is trying to turn that around with his newest concept: Himmarshee Public House. The Canada native has lived in Fort Lauderdale since he was 16; he fondly remembers when the downtown area was in its prime.
"I grew up here," he says. "This is where I would come in high school and college, back when Riverfront was in its heyday. I want to be known as the pioneer that revitalized Second Street."
