Divine Dining Deals
Now that the snowbirds have flown the coop and
the Spring Break crowd has left, the places that
count on the support of tourists in high season
are offering residents deep discounts. Of course, there are
also those places that always offer deals on nights that
might otherwise be slow.
While many places claim to offer happy hour specials
on "bar bites," many times the prices for those items
is exactly the same as it is on the dinner menu, or the
serving size is reduced to compensate for the lower price.
The following places all offer true bargains year-round,
but often expand the scope of the discounts or time frame
during the off-season, giving you even more incentive to
check these real deals.
1236 S. Federal Hwy., Fort
Marti's New River Bistro at
the Broward Center
4140 N. Federal Hwy.
At one of my favorite restaurants,
the $20 three-course prix fixe,
apps, entrees and dessert deal, as
well as select martinis for $6 are
usually available only on Tuesdays.
However, from June through
October, you can take advantage of
the deal Mondays and Wednesdays,
as well. For those who dine early
and want to order a la carte, if
you're seated before 6:30, they'll
give you a free soup or salad and
dessert with any entrée every day
The gals there will give you a special
prix fixe (and that's not a euphemism
for a tuck), which usually includes
Caesar salad, choice of entrees and
dessert for anywhere from $19 to $25,
depending on the night. There's also
a $22 prix fixe brunch. Those prices
include the show, but not tips for the
girls. And you'd better tip, because
Some of the specials available
include dolphin fingers for $9.25,
the gator burger for $4.95 and
full pound-and-a-half of snow
crab legs and corn on the cob for
$19.95. Download a coupon from
the restaurant's web site for more
Next time you're going to a show at The Broward
Center, check out Marti's pre-theater prix fixe. The
$36 dinner includes a choice of soup, Greek salad
or tomato and fresh mozzarella with aged balsamic
syrup as an appetizer. The entrée options feature;
lobster and shrimp mac and cheese, crispy chicken,
Asian duck confit, grilled churrasco steak, veal
Bolognese, pan-seared pork chop, or the catch of the
day. Sweet endings include a choice of key lime pie,
double chocolate cake or seasonal berries.
Morton's also woos the pre-theater set with a prix-
fixe menu and complimentary valet parking. The
menu, priced at $52 per person, is available from 5:30-
6:30 p.m. and includes a choice of Morton's or Caesar
salad, entrée, vegetable or potato and dessert. Entrée
selections include filet mignon and lump crab cakes
among other options.
The food at the street-side café is better than it has
to be (or what you might expect) although service is
a bit haphazard. In addition to daily specials listed
on the blackboard there are also theme nights. On
Monday beef tacos are only a buck each, chicken
wings are 50 cents each on Tuesday, on Wednesday
all burgers are half price and on Thursday, it's 2 for 1
dinners with a drink purchase.
Southport Raw Bar
1536 Cordova Rd., Fort
The restaurant offers specials every
night, including Monday steak nights
for $10.99, Thursday surf and turf for
$14.99, and a New England clambake
Saturdays. Additionally, the "Family
Sampler" combo meal features enough
for six people; with a half rack of pork
spare ribs, a half a chicken, one pound
each of chopped pork and sliced beef,
plus large orders of collard greens, mac
and cheese, baked beans, coleslaw and
six corn muffins.
Morton's the Steakhouse
