Restaurants give people the chance to enjoy tasty meals without the work of cooking, unlike resting aunts, who usually force their relatives to cook for themselves. Procure a meal effortlessly with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of New American fare and drinks at Bistro 17 in the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel. Today's Groupon can also be used in the lobby bar, 17th Street Lounge, where patrons can enjoy the same fare.
Within the walls of Bistro 17, an experienced chef has assembled a menu stuffed with culinary delights with touches of cuisines from around the world. Unlock the secrets of a tasty crab cake with key-lime mustard ($14) or whet the appetite on a gator chowder flavored with chipotle-roasted corn ($5). Several salads ($7–$9) lure diners into their leafy sanctums, and predatory appetites stalk new york strip steaks, basking in a pool of garlic herb butter and attended by mashed potatoes and veggies ($28). At the burger bar, culinary architects build toothsome towers from a selection of five proteins, six cheeses, and a wide variety of toppings, sauces, and crossbeams ($10–$14). Crown black Angus beef with havarti dill, barbecue sauce, and onions ($12), or heap jalapeño, banana peppers, and roasted peppers onto an ahi-tuna patty ($14). Diners can toast their creations with a beer ($5–$6) or welcome summer with a glass of watermeloncello—a concoction of limoncello, Bacardi, watermelon, and club soda ($12)—which produces a cello sonata when sipped.
The intimate dining room treats eyes to pale-green and yellow walls and flower-adorned tables. Tea lights line a sleek bar, and a tropically accented lounge invites wayfarers to recline on couches amid candles and curtains. Dress code is casual, and Morse code is typically formal.
