Hope's is all about perseverance -- yours and the owner's. Chef Audrey Hope, who has created one of South Florida's best Caribbean/American spots (with a heavy accent on Bahamian cooking), serves all the best fried fish, fish stews, lobster tail, red beans and rice, and guava duff you could hope for. The entire Hope clan helps keep the restaurant hopping, as does the steady takeout business at the beer/wine/alcohol bar/counter. Stick with the tilapia stew or the fried snapper, and go with the red beans and rice as a side order. End your meal with guava duff, a Bahamian shortcake dessert covered with a sauce made from guava. Delicious eating and a unique dining experience. Let's hope the restaurant springs eternal.
