Strike Hunger

This damnable recession is really getting in the way of the most important aspect of your life — which is, naturally, your obsession with food. Banks are going under, houses are foreclosing, and you … all you can think about is the next time you’ll be able to snarf some pan-seared Hudson Valley foie gras with lychee and pineapple compote. Well, bully for you, Mr. Priorities, because there’s a gustatory bailout plan aimed squarely at your teeth and gums. It’s called Dine Out Fort Lauderdale, and it’s your meal ticket into nearly 40 of Broward County’s brightest culinary hotspots. For just $35 per person, you can enjoy three-course prix fixe menus from the likes of Four Rivers Contemporary Thai Kitchen (Fort Lauderdale’s answer to red curry), Cero at the Ritz-Carlton, Hi-Life Café (featuring our very own Top Chef, Carlos Fernandez), and 3030 Ocean. But the window is narrow my friends — the offer stands until November 14 only. For a complete list of participating restaurants, visit, category “dine out.”
