Situated on the rooftop of Fort Lauderdale's dazzling Dalmar hotel, Sparrow's panoramic views of the city's skyline, beach, and everything in between are only the beginning. Its menu — spanning tropically inspired cocktails ($13 and up), handcrafted sushi rolls ($14 and up), and large mains like lobster mac 'n' cheese ($24) and a five-spice lamb chop ($37) — is just as tantalizing, equating to a memorable happy hour, totally lit brunch, or elegant dinner. There's plenty of space to work with at Sparrow, which has a main bar, lounge, and expansive patio clad with greenery, retro furniture, and natural wood elements. In a crowded restaurant space, it can be hard to find a restaurant that checks off all the boxes — ambiance, quality, a view, and more. Sparrow delivers on all fronts.
