Lost Restaurants of Fort Lauderdale
Todd L. Bothel, Dan Santoro
So many iconic Fort Lauderdale restaurants have come and gone. From steakhouses to floating eateries and a doughnut shop that catered to a strictly adult audience, these dining destinations served up everything from gourmet seafood to post-beach chill food. Here, you can have another slice at Pizio's Drive-Inn, another heaping plate of pasta at Tina's Spaghetti House, a guilt-free brandy snapp at Fred Wenner's and a final long night at Porky's Hideaway. From the snow crab bisque at Mango's to the key lime baked Alaska from The Caves, authors Todd Bothel and Dan Santoro also serve up vintage recipes that allow readers to re-create classic dishes from these beloved Fort Lauderdale institutions.
