Five Best New Restaurants in Fort Lauderdale

A lot can change over the course of a summer in South Florida: Hurricanes may come (none recently, thankfully), floods may wash things out, chefs can change kitchens, restaurants come and go.

With a large portion of residents packed up and gone to cooler climes, local restaurants tend to get hit hard by loss of revenue during the offseason -- unfortunately, many of them close.

That being said, summer is also the ideal time to work out the kinks of a new spot before the crazy crowds of season descend upon our shores.
