BEST RESTAURANT TO IMPRESS OUT-OF-TOWN GUESTS
3049 Alhambra St., Fort Lauderdale; 954-764-3500; CasablancaCafeOnline.com
Casablanca Cafe has a chic crowd, a lovely patio and a great view, but more than that, it is a beautifully maintained, two-story Mediterranean Revival home designed by architect Francis Abreu and built in 1927 fewer than 100 yards from the ocean. It is the first home built on Fort Lauderdale beach and its oldest remaining structure. Who says we don’t know from history, Aunt Phyllis?
