  • Hot Tomatoe Italian Bistro
    Montreal native Tony Bianco teamed up with executive chef Enzo Addario to create Hot Tomatoe, a traditional Italian bistro boasting a menu that brims with house-made, cooked-to-order pastas, flavorful meat dishes, and full- and light-bodied Italian wines. Their regional cuisine typically integrates up to seven essential ingredients—oil, garlic, basil, tomatoes, pasta, and olives—from which Snow White’s seven dwarves drew their names. In addition, the staff goes shopping for fresh ingredients three to four days a week to supplement both seasonal compositions and year-round dishes, which include veal parmigiana, filet mignon, and penne norma.

  • Mojo
    Anthony DeMaio and Domenick Falcione's culinary venture, Mojo, reflects the partners' shared ideology of providing a feast for all the senses. When Falcione isn't busy festooning the dining room's walls with his abstract mixed-media artwork, he dons an executive-chef hat and concocts the restaurant's menu of inventive international cuisine. In an interview with the Sun Sentinel, he describes his approach to art and cooking: "I believe food is a feast for your senses, eyes, nose, taste buds and your soul. For plate presentation, I use the colors and positioning of the food, which is similar to when I paint on the canvas." Falcione creates these aesthetically pleasing dishes with organic grains and vegetables, Lock Duart salmon, free-range chicken, and local, seasonal ingredients. His entrees blend French, Italian, and Asian flavors and preparations, and his housemade desserts include the popular flourless chocolate-espresso torte. His passion for beauty is also apparent when examining Mojo's sleek, ultramodern décor. Once guests enter the restaurant's stainless-steel doors, they're surrounded by crisp, white tables and chairs, striped teal banquettes, white orchids, and chandeliers adorned with rows of peacock feathers.

  • 15th Street Fisheries & Dockside Cafe
    15th Street Fisheries illustrates a key facet of the circle of life: you feed the fish, and the fish feed you. Every evening, guests head to the edge of the docks to feed schools of giant tarpon—fish that can grow up to 8 feet long—with shrimp from the nearby store. It's a feat made possible by the restaurant's location on the Lauderdale Marina, a hub for pedestrians and boats alike on the Intracoastal Waterway. Floating above the silvery tarpon, yachts, fishing boats, and other charters pass in view of the upstairs dining room. The space resembles an upscale boathouse with eclectic seafood entrees to match. Start with a bowl of Bahamian-style conch chowder or shrimp and grits, then choose from an impressive list of prepared fish, including miso-glazed Chilean sea bass and pan-roasted black grouper. The Maine lobsters on the menu weigh 2 to 3 pounds, depending on how often they crawled ashore to go to the gym, but you can also order a spiny lobster tail with baby bok choy. Downstairs, the dockside café offers more casual fare and live music on weekends.

  • Off the Hookah - Fort Lauderdale
    The bartenders at Cyn Night Club play with fire. The world-ranked flair bartenders often incorporate pyrotechnics into the mixing of their cocktails. Even still, they’re competing for attention, working against a backdrop of gogo dancers, belly dancers, and other nightly entertainment. Meanwhile, in each location’s 14,000-square-foot lounge, patrons sit back and enjoy the venue-wide show while taking puffs from flavored hookah. Of course, the lounge is not all atmosphere—at some locations is a menu of international delicacies, which draw inspiration from far-flung locales such as the Mediterranean and Japan. Family-style feasts of kabobs, seafood, and falafel complement a la carte options, such as hearty pastas and sushi rolls stuffed with tuna, eel, and soft shell crab.

  • Shooters Waterfront Cafe USA
    Shooters Waterfront Cafe USA showcases vistas of the intracoastal waterway as servers ferry plates of fresh seafood, burgers, and sandwiches to outdoor tables. Boat docking with valet assistance allows diners to pull up to the waterfront eatery after a day spent negotiating record deals with musically gifted whales. Shooters serves drinks on an outdoor patio, while their swimming pool allows guests to mimic those musical whales. On the weekends, a raw-food bar lures seafood lovers with fresh-caught oysters, clams, shrimp, and crab legs.

  • Rice and Dough
    Pizza served alongside sushi and sake. Some might say it's an unusual collision of cuisines under one roof, but at Rice & Dough, Goran and Amy Perovic don't quite see it that way. "We consider ourselves an American restaurant featuring two favorite kinds of American food," Goran told SouthFlorida.com, explaining that today, both sushi and Italian food fall under the ever-growing umbrella of American cuisine. No matter what you call it, Rice & Dough has made quite the impression since its 2012 opening, attracting the attention of the Miami Herald's Rochelle Koff, the Broward Palm Beach New Times's Tricia Woolfenden, and Examiner.com's Drew Berliner. Having something for everyone is likely part of its success; patrons in the mood for sushi can enjoy a collection of maki, including a Z Fantasy roll packed with shrimp tempura, eel, and avocado, prepared in plain sight by a skilled chef at the sushi bar. Italian-food lovers, meanwhile, can slice up and share a margherita pie or one of the other dozen pizzas handmade by Goran in the open kitchen. Other Italian offerings include platefuls of housemade lasagna and lunchtime paninis. Because he's a former sommelier, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Goran has also compiled an extensive wine list for his guests, featuring reds, whites, and plenty of sake.
