Of all the world class dining options in Fort Lauderdale, one of my absolute favorites is Bistro Mezzaluna. Located at 1821 SE 10th Avenue, just south of 17th Street Causeway, east of Federal Highway, this romantic Italian bistro eatery offers a wide variety of fresh seafood, pastas, and meats, prepared fresh daily for lunch and dinner. Headed by Executive Chef Brian Rutherford, graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, the food is known for its elegance and simplicity. Rutherford combines classic comfort foods of Italy with a twist and an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients. His past endeavors include the critically acclaimed Pearl Restaurant and Champagne Lounge with partner Jack Penrod. They have an award winning wine list, impeccable service with live music in the lounge, and a very popular happy hour. Bistro Mezzaluna is ideal for both special occasions as well as business lunches. I have always had the most incredible meals at Bistro Mezzaluna and highly recommend it. Some of my favorite dishes at Bistro Mezzaluna include the Sesame Seared Tuna, Pinenut Crusted Sea Bass, Pan Roasted Yellow Tail Snapper, Rack of Lamb, Classic Stone Crabs in season, Caesar Salad, Fresh Sautéed Spinach with Garlic, and for desert, Vanilla Crème Brulee or the delicious Bistro Apple Pie. Below is the full Dinner Menu from Bistro Mezzaluna. Make sure to ask your server for the right wine pairings and the specials as they are excellent and differ daily! They await your reservation at (954) 522-9191 and their hours of operation are Monday through Thursday 11:30am-11pm, Friday, 11:30am-12am, Saturday 5:00pm-12am, and Sunday 5:00pm-11pm. Happy Hour is weekdays from 3pm-7pm and Sunday 5pm-7pm!
