DINING – Some Tips for Tranquilo Fort Lauderdale

“A restaurant is a fantasy – a kind of living fantasy in which diners are the most important members of the cast.” – Warner LeRoy

Walk down the block from your Tranquilo room and you’ll find exceptional restaurants and cafes for every taste and lifestyle! Awaiting you are wonderful family and romantic restaurants, quick stops, and posh beach side eateries.

Before venturing far from Tranquilo , tantalize your taste buds at North Beach Village’s Wine Garden or Village Cafe and enjoy sea breezes while dining on scrumptious culinary creations and listening to live dinner music.

Keep in mind that seafood is superb and fresh most everywhere because most are caught in the bountiful and clean Atlantic waters off of Fort Lauderdale’s coastline. Grouper, Snapper, Stone Crab claws and Swordfish are excellent, but many others will be available, as well, depending on the catch of the day. If you like seafood, always ask for fresh and locally caught fish, which will give you a new understanding of the word “fresh.”

You’ll find there are plenty of Fort Lauderdale restaurants that serve good ole’ Americana fare, too, like juicy steaks, pork chops or more international cuisines, like Italian, Chinese, and Indian food.

Yet, if fireworks are what you’re after, there are many Fort Lauderdale Beach restaurants that offer attention-grabbing flavors, intense fusions and styles. You’ll find ingenious adaptations reflecting Caribbean and Southern nuances, European and Asian flairs, Latin American zest and Southwestern spices.

Nearby, the Galleria Mall has restaurants and a food court but for the more cultural areas, visit Las Olas Boulevard where Fort Lauderdale first took root.

Of course, North Beach Hotel has barbecues and kitchen facilities, so when you’re ready to eat a home cooked meal or a grab a fast bite, prepare with groceries and supplies from nearby Publix Supermarket just around the corner.

“Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.” – Henny Youngman
