Gilbert’s 17th Street Grill
1821 Cordova Road, Fort Lauderdale; 954-768-8990; Gilberts17thStGrill.com
Lenore Gilbert’s sirloin-slinging restaurant offers 11 plump, hockey puck-shaped Angus beef burgers, each flame-charred, but only one can be called king. It is the Havarti Burger, which arrives nestled between two toasted, garlic-buttered English muffins, and topped with bacon and Havarti. It is crispy and drool-worthy, and should be complemented by Gilbert’s sweet-potato fries.
