Fort Lauderdale for Foodies

A world-class restaurant scene underscores this neighboring city’s GROWING SOPHISTICATION

The first Florida restaurant from Auberge Resorts Collection—of Michelin-starred Auberge du Soleil fame—revolves around a stellar ocean-to-table menu in a seductive, minimalist Meyer Davis–designed space. Feast on ingredient-driven dishes like crab spaetzle (pan-fried lump crab and Alsatian dumplings with cherry tomatoes, chili flakes, and preserved Meyer lemon) and blackened cobia (atop red quinoa, salsify puree, and mushroom conserva) while relishing excellent Napa Valley wines and hand-crafted cocktails. Admire the inspiring MiMo design indoors or reserve a table outside for prime ocean views. (dunefl.com)
