Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

In the event you've made the rounds on our Fort Lauderdale lunch list, there's a new one in the queue.

 Tap 42 has quietly debuted for lunch with an edited menu. Kudos for the burgers, in particular the "breakfast-lunch-dinner" with a fried egg, green tomato, and Swiss on brioche. Chef Chris Palmer has added a few regional plates, such as Wisconsin bratwurst, Pittsburgh kielbasa, and a bourbon barbecue sandwich.

Also: Get your swerve on early at happy hour here, with two for one domestic beers, wine, and well drinks from 4 to 7 p.m. Not a bad idea since beer prices aren't listed on the menu, so a night of a few brews ends up more expensive than intended. 

On January 2, also opening for lunch will be Kapow! Noodle Bar, the Asian gastropub from Rodney Mayo, Scott Frielich, and Vaughan Lazar, with cooking from Roy Villacrusis.  More on Clean Plate Charlie as the date nears.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
