The monopoly tycoons of the nineteenth century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine-dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Dine in unchaperoned splendor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale fare at The French Quarter located on the third floor of the Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale Beach.
The French Quarter, the signature restaurant of the Mardi Gras Casino, features an upscale menu brimming with sandwiches, steaks, and seafood. Sandwiches such as the portobello burger, marinated and grilled with roasted red peppers, silence stomachs begging for breaded bliss ($7.95), and fans of beef and silent t's sink their incisors into 8-ounce filet mignon ($23). Pan-seared mahi mahi covered in fresh mango salsa ($13.95) swims into the bellies of seafoodies not already noshing on an 8-ounce sirloins accompanied by jumbo shrimp ($20.94). Live dog races and panoramic views of Fort Lauderdale also entertain diners from the comfort of their tables or the discomfort of their mohair unitards.
