Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
There's something inherently elegant about white tablecloths. At the Zagat-rated Bistro Mezzaluna located in Lauderdale's yachting district, it's not unusual to find yacht crew and boat captains dining in a pair of shorts alongside an affluent regular crowd. Executive Chef Brian Rutherford has prepared an eclectic menu with an Italian touch of simple, comfort foods focusing on using local, seasonal ingredients. Try the yellowtail snapper with lump crabmeat sprinkled with capers and tomatoes in a white wine sauce. What is not simple is the wine selection: There are more than 350 bottles to choose from, but the knowledgeable staff can steer you through the list. Some of the wait staff has worked here since Bistro Mezzaluna's opening in 1993. Be sure to peruse the daily specials in addition to classic pasta options, chops and steaks, seafood, and made-on-the-premises desserts.
