Todd English: He's the sort of celebrity chef who makes women swoon and men curl their upper lip in jealousy. It's not enough that he's dashing, sophisticated, and has his face plastered literally everywhere, from glossy mag covers to Bravo's Top Chef; he's also built an empire out of an absurd number of restaurants in locales such as New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and now… Fort Lauderdale? A rustic, Northern-Italian entry into that fleet, da Campo simplifies the offerings of his flagship Figs and turns them into something more ingredient-centric. That means fresh mozzarella pulled tableside; platters of salumi; a host of pasta dishes ranging from comforting spaghetti and meatball to linguine vongole; and some pricey second is like a Tuscan rib eye that cracks $45. Though it sits on the Intracoastal in the il Lugano Hotel, there's no outdoor seating, and the dining room feels cramped.
