Canale Restaurant & Bar Offers Simple Italian Fare Right on the New River

Years ago downtown Fort Lauderdale's Riverfront went from bustling plaza to veritable ghost town. Aside from the always busy Briny Riverfront Bar and Restaurant, the large space has stood mostly unoccupied for quite some time.

The emptiness, however, is just starting to fill up.

After months of delay, Canale Restaurant & Bar opened its doors to the public earlier this month.

Set in the former site of Suite 100, the indoor/outdoor restaurant offers upscale modern Italian fare overlooking the New River.
