Patrons enter Sublime Restaurant in Fort Lauderdale.
Gourmet diners have long had Sublime as their go-to destination, a restaurant founded by animal-rights activist Nanci Alexander and serving an entirely vegan and partly organic menu. The place has always been beautiful, with its water wall and open brick oven and its inventive list of healthy cocktails and organic wines. The food lives up to the name, from a delicious tempura-battered cauliflower, frito misto, to a gorgeous Sublime roll wrapped in grasshopper-greensoy paper. The classic Margherita pizza from the wood-burning oven could totally go crust-to-crust with the best brick-oven pizzas in South Florida. And a braised spinach, wood-fired artichoke, and roasted shallot quiche lacking either eggs or cream is a knockout. Click here to read more on the biggest misconceptions about vegetarians.
