Our Favorite Restaurant in Fort Lauderdale

Market 17 is an exceptional dining experience. Market 17 is a farm-to-table organic restaurant and the owners describe their food as “wine country cuisine.” The menu changes daily based on what fresh produce, fish, seafood, meat and poultry is available in the area. The restaurant features over 350 wine labels and both owners are Sommeliers. Zagat's review is as follows: “Innovative American-Eclectic fare made with a deft touch of farm-fresh ingredients earns kudos for this sophisticated spot in Fort Lauderdale.” Market 17 is located at 1850 SE 17th Street in the Portside Yachting Center just west of the 17th Street Bridge (www.market17.net).
