How do you improve upon perfection? We’re not sure, but somehow Steak 954 has. Chef Jason Smith has introduced new dishes to his fall menu, looking to reflect the restaurant’s beachfront curb appeal as well as incorporate more farm-to-table sensibility. Standouts on the menu include the organic Scottish salmon with an herb salad, roasted cage-free chicken served with caponata, and a light and fresh burrata salad.
The changes on the menu also include the dessert additions that Pastry Chef Sarah Magoon curated. Memorable dishes are the chocolate and cherry bread pudding (made with croissants!) and a to-die-for key lime baked Alaska.
New cocktails include the “remedy,” a Grey Goose drink with chamomile tea, agave, mint and honey lemon syrup; and the “diosa,” a citrus drink with corzo blanco tequila, pineapple shrub and lime.
Steak 954 is located inside the W Fort Lauderdale, 401 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale
Think you know Cantina Laredo? Think again. The upscale Mexican restaurant at Village at Gulfstream Park has given its menu a facelift, adding new items to both its lunch and dinner offerings. In particular, look out for Quesadillas Al Cangrejo (lump crab with goat cheese and mango ginger salsa) and Torta De Carnitas (griddle-baked sandwich with slow-roasted pork, fried egg, apricot spread and goat cheese).
But don’t worry – if you’re a fan of the restaurant, your old favorites are still available. Try the 3 Amigos margarita, a fun orange and lime margarita with a sidecar of Hornitos Plata and a Corona spilling upside-down into your glass. We recommend finishing your meal with one of the restaurant’s most popular items, the signature Mexican Apple Pie sizzled in brandy butter and topped with either cinnamon or vanilla ice cream.
Cantina Laredo’s nearest location is at 501 Silks Run, Hallandale
