We'll be in Ft. Lauderdale in a couple of weeks - never been - and am looking for some reccs ... we're in our 30s and live in Manhattan, so we're not looking for anything "trendy" or upscale since there's plenty of that here.
We like to sit/eat at the bar, drink and people watch. Looking for great seafood places, local hangouts, ribs, on-the-water or beach type places. Nothing too expensive, just tasty, authentic food. I know nothing about the local area ... we're staying at the Atlantic so if we want something upscale one night we'd probably just eat at Trina. What is good that is in walking distance? We're willing to travel to other areas as well.
