Having weathered the economic downturn that knocked off some of its neighbors, this Las Olas mainstay is still kicking. Of course, this corner joint comes with some of that boulevard's highbrow appeal (you can spend $17 on a salad here). It's popular place for a power-lunch, an interview, or a first date - it smacks of professionalism. That carries to the kitchen, which pumps out semi-fancy grub with panache. Entrees are adventurous but not so crazy they'd bother Grandmother, and most feature an Italian flair. The outdoor tables - even the interior window seats - are perfectly positioned for late-night people-gawking on this trendier-than-thou strip of Fort Lauderdale's prime real estate, and live bands play nightly.
