Pelican Landing

2301 SE 17th St., Fort Lauderdale; 954-525-6666;

It isn’t so much about what’s in your glass as what’s in the vista unveiled as you ascend to the upper deck at this laid-back Intracoastal hideaway behind the Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina. Framed by megayachts and Fort Lauderdale’s dynamic skyline, the slow, glorious march of the sun witnessed from this spot on certain evenings might give Monet pause.
