An unforgettable brunch requires four things: good people, good food, good drinks and a good view. At Burlock Coast Seafare & Spirits, you bring the people and they’ll take care of the rest. The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale eatery is one place we don’t mind traveling to for a stellar experience. It’s a trek from Miami, but boy, is it worth every penny.
Oh, Fort Lauderdale: We love and hate you at the same time. We love the sheer amount of great dining options in the area, but we hate how far you are from Miami. It’s no secret that driving in South Florida sucks — especially when you have to drive long distances.
Thanks to Brightline (soon to be Virgin Trains), all of these awesome restaurants are just a short train ride away. In around half an hour, the train service drops us off you in the heart of Downtown Fort Lauderdale. Instead of wasting time in traffic, you’re within walking/Sun Trolley distance of some of Broward’s top eateries.
That includes Etaru Las Olas.
What are you doing this weekend? There’s only one correct answer: Riptide Music Festival. The annual affair on Fort Lauderdale Beach is bringing some top-notch talent to South Florida for three days straight. Among the acts performing: Panic! At The Disco, 311, Matt & Kim, Cold War Kids, Sublime With Rome and Third Eye Blind. For us, it’s the perfect opportunity to relive our childhoods.
During those three days, you’re going to need food — and booze — to keep you going. That’s why we’ve put together a quick, handy guide to some of our favorite spots near the festival. Check out these four places for pre-gaming.
For those of us living in Miami, Fort Lauderdale can seem like a world away (especially with that infamous South Florida traffic). Because of the distance and road rage, it’s not often you’ll find us up in Broward. But thanks to Brightline, getting to the 954 is no longer a mission.
A few weeks back, we rode the new express train service to spend a day exploring Fort Lauderdale. There’s a lot to do in this beautiful city, and the Brightline and its partners make it easy to fill up your schedule with attractions and — of course — food. Here’s a rundown of our day in FTL.
Miami gets a lot of attention when it comes to craft cocktails. The city is home to some of the best bars in the country, and we’re not just saying that — national media agrees. Miami-Dade County’s neighbor is no slouch, though: Broward bars like The Wilder are giving us the 305 a run for its money … and then some.
