Market 17 is a new restaurant in Fort Lauderdale that’s part of the farm-to table-movement. They use organic and local products in all their dishes. I was so excited to be able to go there for a delicious dinner recently! (Sorry in advance for the food pics, I was only with my trusty iPhone that night).
I even got a chance to chat with the Executive Chef, Daniel Ramos, about the cuisine. He spent months researching local foods and meeting with local farmers to develop his menu, which changes daily. Everything from Lettuce to Lobster is local.
Now it was time to eat! After drooling over the menu for a while, I had my choices ready.
Our dinner was spectacular, and so was the service. Also, the owners are sommeliers so they have an excellent wine list as well.
Hopefully I’ll be going back soon for Dining in the Dark…it’s a crazy experience where you are literally sitting in complete darkness trying Chef Daniel’s specialties. The server has night vision goggles and guides you to your utensils and food. You don’t find out what you’re eating until afterwards. Sounds like an adventure!
