Las Olas Gourmet & Wine
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Las Olas Gourmet & Wine lives up to its name. In fact, one customer called it a "wine spa" because of its extensive international wine list and cozy, elegant, intimate cafe setting. Don't let the frou-frou vibe turn you off, though -- it's still totally accessible for regular folk. Pizza is made daily on the premises the authentic Italian way (try a proiscuitto di parma, topped with fresh mozzarella, choice prosciutto, pesto, basil and hearty mushrooms) and the menu is rounded out with pasta dishes, hummus, falafels, and salads featuring goat cheese or pesto -- all under ten bucks. Delivery is notably fast, even during busy lunch hours. Wine connoisseurs, come by on Friday nights for winetastings.
