Proving grounds for the students of the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and open only a few nights a week, Chef's Palette provides an unusual dining experience. The school is located just beside the 17th Street bridge, and its see-through design lets you get a view of the action in the kitchen. Doesn't everyone look cute in chef's hats? One could argue that diners are taking a risk, because the cooks are in training, but the menu skews upscale, and teachers' expectations are high. Lunch is a prix-fixe three-course arrangement with soup/salad and fish, chicken, lamb, or beef. Chef's Palette provides an interesting, classroomesque take on fine dining.
