Hope's is all about perseverance -- yours and the owner's. Chef Audrey Hope, who has created one of South Florida's best Caribbean/American spots (with a heavy accent on Bahamian cooking), serves all the best fried fish, fish stews, lobster tail, red beans and rice, and guava duff you could hope for.
