South Florida's Ten Most Romantic Restaurants

Page 2 of 5

10. Sefa Turkish Mediterranean Grill -- It's impossible to set the mood if the atmosphere in which you're attempting to lay the groundwork gives even a hint of inhospitality. In addition to a welcoming staff, Sefa boasts a dining room that's equal parts polished and funky, with a comfortable mix of traditional table setups and cushy furniture. Snuggle up on the loveseat with your dinner date and share a platter of Mediterranean fare (and a view of Pineapple Grove) and a bottle of red. Weekend nights bring the hip-popping undulations of a belly dancer, whose sultry presence infuses the room with just a hint of sexual tension. 9. Blue Moon Fish Co. -- With its killer view of the Intracoastal and laidback approach to white-tablecloth dining, Blue Moon has carved out a nice little niche as one of Fort Laudy's go-to date night destinations. In fact, it's even created a Monday "date night" program that offers special dinner and drink packages for couples. As the name would suggest, seafood is the restaurant's specialty, and a raw bar comes stocked with the typical favorites, including oysters. (And you know what they say about oysters.) The restaurant's popular Sunday brunch is a good bet for an afternoon date. Pay the set price and toast to your heart's content with unlimited champagne and sweet treats like strawberry shortcake and crème brûlée.
