I'm visiting the 'rents in PSL and Ft Lauderdale in December and need some lunch and dinner recommendations.
Firstly, PSL: We usually dine in the general St Lucie West vicinity. Are there any new places I should be aware of? Any really great spots worth a short drive (<20 mins) to check out? Will accept multiple lunch recs! Looking for at least one fancier dinner night.
Ft. Lauderdale: I grew up here partly, but my experience was centered around Flanagan's on Cordova/SE 15th St. (Love the ribs!)Would love to treat my dad to a really nice meal--but nothing overly stuffy. (I get paid in £ so $ is not too much of an issue at the moment.) Also would like a Japanese rec. I remember there being a nice one towards the top of Las Olas, but that was ages ago. Lastly, a good place for a drink with dad after dinner. Last time around, we went to the "new" Irish bar in Beachplace and we liked that because of the live music--something similar would be fun.
Thanks so much, and I hope to return the favor someday. :)
