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 reminders of chef Steven Zobel's decade spent running Triomphe, a popular French restaurant in New York City (Try his 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.
fantastic food & atmosphere! a little warm cozy taste of Brooklyn. young, fun yet charming & sophisticated. such a rare find in this town. ps: Sunday brunch is definitely one of the best around!!
Get the Siracha and Wasabi fries. Holy crap they are so good.
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!
