Bee­hive Kitchen – 6312 N. An­drews Ave., Fort Laud­erdale, 954-541-8787. The bowl craze tak­ing flight at many fast ca­sual eater­ies is also abuzz at Bee­hive, where qual­ity in­gre­di­ents with global in­flu­ences and bold sea­son­ing make for very sat­is­fy­ing meals. Or­der­ing can be con­fus­ing with all the op­tions. The sweet potato glass noo­dles with shred­ded pork is ex­cel­lent. In­ex­pen­sive. Lunch, din­ner. Re­viewed 7-26-17.

Her first-time restau­rant ven­ture, ca­sual and a bit cramped, also scores with de­li­cious dishes such as pork belly bis­cuits, roasted bone mar­row, miso cau­li­flower and brick chicken. Din­ner.

Valentino chef-owner Gio­vanni Roc­chio hired tal­ented chef Jeremy Bear­man, who earned a Miche­lin star in New York, to run the kitchen at One Door East, and he’s turn­ing out in­ven­tive, ever-chang­ing dishes in a loud, in­dus­trial set­ting. Ex­pen­sive. Din­ner. Re­viewed12-9-16. Revenant Cof­fee House and Eatery – 2301NE 26th St., Fort Laud­erdale, 954-947-7509.

The price of the gim­micky cheeses­teak has dropped (from $100 to $65), but nearly ev­ery­thing else re­mains the same at Stephen Starr’s de­pend­able meat-driven, jel­ly­fish tank adorned show­place over­look­ing Fort Laud­erdale Beach. Desserts are stel­lar. Break­fast, lunch, din­ner. Very ex­pen­sive. Re­viewed 1-27-17. YOLO — 333 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Laud­erdale, 954-5231000.
