New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

Jeremiah Buchanan and Zandra Lindgren met about ten years ago when he went to Sweden as an exchange student and stayed with her family. They stayed together through high school and while both of them set out on careers in the restaurant business, she as a manager and he as a cook. After being married five months, the two of them tried something new in the summer of 2010: opening a restaurant together. Bluejay's Café in Himmarshee features a Southwestern menu inspired by the food Jeremiah ate growing up in New Mexico. There's a skirt steak rubbed with chili powder, a Southwestern chicken sandwich full of avocado, and a rack of lamb with a red wine reduction. They'll also serve breakfast, a rarity for downtown Fort Lauderdale. And the prices are decidedly inexpensive for downtown, from $6 to $26. The 28-seat dining room has a minimalist bistro look with exposed rafters and cinder block walls. They have another 24 seats outside on the sidewalk, facing the Museum of Discovery and Science.

    Amazing brunch selections! Wine and beer menu, but they have a $15 corkage fee if you want to BYO

    The skirt steak was great and reasonable priced

  • Melissa A. on 07/09/10

    Steak tacos are a total winner. Roasted beet salad is pretty good too
