If you’ve ever visited Greater Fort Lauderdale you’re already aware of the many allures and attractions that make this an earthly paradise. And you’ve likely been captivated by its eternal charms.
EXPLORE IT ALL
Maybe you got away from it all at Deerfield Beach. Perhaps you checked out Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, a quaint oasis where everyone knows your name. Or maybe you opted for the sun, sand and vibe of Pompano Beach or Hollywood.
Chances are you availed yourself of other Greater Fort Lauderdale attractions as well: shopping at Galleria or along Las Olas Boulevard (a.k.a. “Style Mile”) or taking in the natural splendour of Sawgrass Recreation Park.
But to really sample a bit of ambrosia—to really bond with this corner of heaven on Earth—nosh a little lunch, brunch or dinner.
According to Norse mythology, Valhalla is the ultimate reward for Viking warriors—the literal playground of the gods. Welcome to Greater Fort Lauderdale—a foodie’s Valhalla.
Consider Taste Fort Lauderdale, a highlight of the prestigious 16th Annual Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Book a culinary pilgrimage here from February 22 to 26 to partake in a regular pantheon of earthly delights—a culinary cornucopia.
Dine with the stars at this signature event. Do walk-around tastings alfresco at Seaside Eats. Attend a bloody mary brunch with David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris. Finish up your day of delights at a new offering in 2017: DRINK Fort Lauderdale invites you to sip signature cocktails after that omnipresent sun goes down, while caking in the delights and culture of FATVillage.
But you don’t have to come during Taste Fort Lauderdale to savour menus worthy of the great god Thor himself. “Depending on one’s mood,” says spokesperson Jessica Savage, “Greater Fort Lauderdale offers dining options that range from oceanside dining, cool coffee haunts and craft cocktail bars to unique ‘Floribbean’ (Florida meets the Caribbean) fare and various ethnic cuisines.”
Dock and dine. Do Italian. Chase that entree with a bespoke cocktail. Vikings may pine for Valhalla, but foodies in the know will always choose Greater Fort Lauderdale.
