Fort Lauderdale is hungry – and more options are on the way…

Being called the “Las Olas Restaurant Renaissance,” Fort Lauderdale is ready and waiting to welcome some new options to our dining scene:

Red Door Asian Bistro – Scheduled to open April 23 (625 E. Las Olas Blvd – former site of Johnny V). This restaurant is owned by Tony Asta who runs a chain of Asian-fusion restaurants around the Hamptons and other cities on Long Island, N.Y. Red Door Asian Bistro will offer Japanese, Thai and Chinese cuisine, and will feature hibachi-grill dining in a separate room 🐲

The Balcony – Scheduled to open later this spring, next door to Rocco’s Taco’s, is a New Orleans-style eatery brought to us by the ex-Miami Dolphins player turned restauranter, Kim Bokamper (1309 E. Las Olas Blvd – former site of Whiskey Jack’s) 🎊

Del Frisco’s Grille – An upscale American chain steakhouse/grill (in the former SunTrust branch location) 🇺🇸

Vapiano’s – European chain that serves classic dishes with a modern twist (former Cafe de Paris location – which closed after 50 years in 2016) 🥘

Sushi Shack – California style Japanese restaurant (finally filling the space of the short lived Fork & Balls) 🍣

Talento – Modern Italian restaurant (a vacant space that once housed the Cathode Ray Club) 🍦

Las Olas has also had the recent re-launch of Mango’s, the opening of Delray’s Taco hot spot El Camino, and the opening of Boathouse which overlooks the New River at the Riverside Hotel 🌮

More than 80,000 residential units have opened in downtown Fort Lauderdale in recent years, with another 7,000 residential and 1,000 hotel rooms planned 🏗
