New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

Tucked into a corner in a Fort Lauderdale strip mall along Federal Highway (by Whole Foods) is a gastropubby-looking restaurant with some upscale surprises inside. The menu changes monthly; on it, you might find amped-up comfort foods like a soul-food-style fried chicken with a maple-glazed funnel cake in place of the waffle or seared chicken livers draped in sweet, sherry-braised onion atop circular crusts of bread. DBA/Cafe does double duty as a cool neighborhood restaurant with burgers and a relaxed vibe and as an upscale place with European desserts and a great wine list. No reason you can't have your cake and eat it too.

Tips from foursquare

  • Just like the rest of the menu, the spot revamps its burgers at the start of every month. In April it was topped with cheddar, maple chipotle sauce, cornmeal fried jalapenos, and spinach.

    Great inventive menu and nice wine and beer list. Only knock was the wine pours being a little light. Duck confit is the way to go!
