I am visiting Ft Lauderdale next month and would greatly appreciate your opinions on where to go for 2 dinners:
1) Dinner for two, special occasion, price is not a concern (not necessarily looking for the fanciest place, we are up for anything, it's just that price doesn't matter). Staying at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66, would like to stay within a 20-minute drive from hotel. Would greatly prefer food that has flavors local to southern Florida--something we wouldn't get back in L.A.
2) Dinner for 6-8, moderate prices, fun atmosphere (this is a fun-loving group in their early 30s), again not too far from the Hyatt. A couple of people are picky, so probably nothing too exotic.
Thanks so much!
