Lauderdale Spice? Annual Broward restaurant promotion starts Aug. 1, expands to two months

As usual, the list skews toward steakhouses (Morton’s, the Capital Grille, III Forks) and hotel restaurants. Among the notable ones: Boathouse at the Riverside Hotel, Burlock Coast at the Fort Lauderdale Ritz-Carlton, the Terrace Grill at the new Dalmar Hotel, Lona Cocina at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach, Point Royal at the Diplomat Resort in Hollywood and Wild Thyme at the Atlantic Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. It also includes a few cozier, upscale restaurants outside Fort Lauderdale, including the Cook and the Cork in Coral Springs, Le Bistro in Lighthouse Point and Vienna Wine Bar in Davie.
