Everyone’s favorite food mash-up would definitely be brunch –because not only does it mean getting to sleep in, but it’s also about savoring mouthwatering meals that are far more scrumptious than your usual toast and eggs combo. In Fort Lauderdale you can get beaches and boats as your casual brunch view, now that's perfection. Here are some of the best restaurants for brunch in Fort Lauderdale.
The Foxy Brown
If a diner and a gastropub had an offspring, that would be The Foxy Brown. It’s got that irresistible mix of childhood favorites –savory eats that remind you of family breakfast gatherings, but with a modern twist –resulting in a delicious dose of nostalgia and a hankering for creative bites. Take a gamble with their “Today’s Feature Pancakes” –it can be pancakes stuffed with apple pie or strawberry and chocolate beer pudding. If you want an extra sweet treat, go for the S’more Waffles. For savory delights, take your pick from Crab Cake Benedict, Hangar Steak Hash or Chuck and Moo (grilled rib-eye with 2 eggs). You can even pair your meal with a BLT Sake Mary –Bloody Mary served with celery ice cubes, bacon strips and fried asparagus.
