That S3? It stands for sand, surf and sun. But they could easily substitute in sushi, steak and seafood. It’s all delish, and the small plates make everything more chic. You can enjoy all of it in the restaurant’s expansive courtyard overlooking the bustle of Fort Lauderdale beach. The kitchen stays open until 11 on weeknights and until midnight on weekends. There’s something about late-night dining with small plates that makes sense.
