Hi there. I'm new to this board, but I read it religiously. My father is coming into town in March, and the man loves good food more than air. I'm looking for any really great restaurant suggestions, please, in the Fort Lauderdale area (but I'm willing to drive). He's interested in oysters, and while I know a lot of good places, I'd love to find a really great one. Is Southport Raw Bar still really good? We're definitely going to Tark's. He's also longing for conch fritters, authentic Caribbean, Jamaican, and Haitian food, and he probably would like to try some gator. He'll be here for eight days, and the man can really put it away, so any suggestions would be deeply appreciated, any food, any which way. I'm not as interested in upscale as I am in the tasty little joints that surprise you with their menu. (I will, of course, take upscale suggestions as well!)
Thank you so much for your input!
