Swank Southern Kitchen Rises in Davie

With a rodeo, a downtown "Western district," an equestrian-themed McDonald's, and a horse hitching post at the Walmart Supercenter, Davie is known as a country-Western sort of town. With mile upon mile of chain restaurants and sports bars, Davie is not really known as a place one would travel to -- by horse or motor vehicle -- to find a creative meal.

A group of Miami chefs, who have spent time working in some of the hottest kitchens in the city -- Tuyo, Swine Southern Table & Bar, Nemesis, Pubbelly, and more -- is attempting to turn that around with Swank Southern Kitchen on University Boulevard. A modern Southern eatery, it is bringing dining trends from Miami and other major cities to Davie.
