Big City Tavern is a busy, vibrant restaurant reminiscent of the great urban taverns of Chicago, New York and Boston. A stylish, classic American restaurant, Big City offers a varied menu featuring dry aged steaks, burgers, fresh seafood, salads and fresh house-made pasta of the day. Some of the more popular dishes are the Pan Roasted Salmon with Tomato and the House-Made Charcuterie. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and all delicious. The extensive wine list emphasizes California varietals by the bottle or glass. With its magnificent grand bar always busy, Big City has a constant din of energy and conviviality. Big City offers outdoor sidewalk dining in the center of the action on Las Olas Blvd.<br /><br />Please call the restaurant to make reservations for parties of 12 or more!

Since chef/owner Mike Ponluang opened Coco Asian Bistro & Bar, in April of 2006, he has endeared himself to legions of loyal diners. Locals and visitors are enticed by Chef Mike"s mouthwatering Thai dishes, as well as his superb array of fresh sushi, sashimi, and specialty rolls. Chef Mike is truly dedicated to creating delectable dishes, comprised of fresh, high-quality ingredients, while incorporating Thai herbs to ensure authentic flavor. He is also proud to create his unique Thai dishes, from his own recipes, using French culinary techniques. Stellar dishes include Lobster Pad Thai, Crispy Duck, Grilled Filet Mignon, Baked Chilean Sea Bass, Organic Chicken with Peanut Sauce, and Emerald Scallops. Standout rolls include the Mama Roll, the Three Buddies Roll, and Mike's Roll. Diners can choose from the lively bar, the innovative sushi bar, or the casually elegant dining room -- filled with comfy booths with sheer curtains -- or the covered patio, for lunch or dinner daily.

Franco Filippone, owner and Chef of Sette Bello Ristorante, started his career in the restaurant business at the side of his father, after the family emigrated from Palermo, Sicily to open their now historic restaurant in upstate New York. After a long apprenticeship in the family restaurant, Franco relocated to Fort Lauderdale, where he applied his culinary skills at such world class restaurants as The Addison in Boca Raton, Cafe D’ Angelo and the much lauded Casa d’ Angelo in Fort Lauderdale. Now he brings all his many cooking talents to his charming new restaurant, delivering new twists on classic Italian dishes.

Buca di Beppo serves authentic Italian cuisine in an eclectic, vintage setting. Our dishes are served family-style, meant to be shared by everyone at the table. Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more. At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio. Our energetic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff make Buca di Beppo the perfect place for great Italian food and fun.

"That is what I will remember from this, my first visit at this particular restaurant. Yes, I arrived 10 minutes late. 10 minutes!! When we approached the mean-unsympathetic hostess ever and gave her our name, this is what she babbled: "I was about the cancel your reservations since we are so busy and we need all the tables"... WOW, Hospitality 101 down the window! Of course the restaurant was not even running at 25% of its capacity (and never got beyond that during the at least one hour I spent there). We were so hungry that we just decided to pretend that ignorant and discriminating aloha was not heard and have a dining experience anyways. The rest: slow service (friendly) food was ok only. Not planning on coming back"
