BEST EAST BROWARD RESTAURANT
Hardy Park Bistro
A place that friends only reluctantly tell other friends about, both in fear of upsetting the balance of relaxed sophistication at Hardy Park Bistro and, more selfishly, in making it more difficult to get a table in chef Philip Darmon’s intimate downtown dining room. Rotating menus at lunch, brunch and dinner may offer elegantly plated corvina or lamb, but not enough people will tell you about HPB’s excellent burger and fries. For dessert, if the menu includes the insanely rich sticky date pudding, you are blessed.
