8. Chez Jean-Pierre

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it does buy delectable French cuisine which is almost the same thing. After nearly two decades of serving the rich and famous of Palm Beach, Normandy-born Chef Jean-Pierre Leverrier's fare is still worthy of the accolades -- and the price-tag. Classics like dover sole meuniere ($52); roasted duck with thyme and honey sauce ($39.50); and authentic coq au vin ($32.50) are perfectly executed, and never get old.

7. Cafe La Bonne Crepe

With a covered outdoor patio and comfortable interior, this Las Olas creperie is about as French as you can get in Fort Lauderdale. While it's known for its breakfast, the cafe serves a selection of traditional non-crepe options. Homemade pate ($12), escargot casserole ($14), and Coquille Saint Jacques ($15) are the perfect precursor to your sweet crepe suzette ($12) with Gran Marnier and orange sauce.
