The kitschily decorated Floridian provides chi-chi Las Olas Boulevard with a shot of down-home diner attitude. Weekend mornings find the place packed with couples (gay and straight) loading up on huge made-to-order omelets, pancakes, and French toast. For an old-fashioned, protein-heavy meal, the country-fried steak and eggs can't be beat, and the biscuits and gravy will remind you that you're in the South. There's also a large selection of sandwiches (including "The Floridian," a satisfying tuna melt) and salads, plus homey hot plates like four kinds of meatloaf, fried chicken, and veal cutlets. Eighteen varieties of burger is almost too much to choose from, but the cheddar burger is one of the best in town. Service is diner-friendly too - efficient and kindly but not the least bit saccharine.
