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. Billy Jack’s Shack – 218 Com­mer­cial Blvd., Laud­erdale-bythe-Sea, 954-990-8671. When home­grown lo­cal chef Todd Zim­mer (Prime112, Mark’s at the Park) tired of the fine-din­ing scene he de­cided to open a funky burger-and-beer joint near the beach. The motto is “beef, bacon, beer, bird” and the food – al­beit heavy and not heart-healthy or ve­gan-friendly – is com­fort­ing and good. In­ex­pen­sive-mod­er­ate. Lunch, din­ner. Re­viewed11-9-18. Bub­bles & Pearls – 2037 Wil­ton Dr., Wil­ton Manors. 954-533-9553. Ef­fer­ves­cent chef-owner Josie Smith Malave, a past “Top Chef” con­tes­tant, says Cham­pagne and oys­ters should be en­joyed daily and not just for spe­cial oc­ca­sions. 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.

This fast-ca­sual sand­wich shop in gen­tri­fy­ing Fat Vil­lage is from the cre­ators of ROK:BRGR, Piz­za­craft and Ta­cocraft, and many of the ar­ti­sanal meats, cheeses and breads meld to make good al­beit pricey ($12 to $15) sand­wiches. The Mon­treal-style smoked meat and crispy fried chicken sand­wiches are ex­cel­lent. Don’t miss the house­made choco­late peanut butter pie. Blar­ing horns from pass­ing Bright­line trains add char­ac­ter. Mod­er­ate. Break­fast, lunch, din­ner. Re­viewed 5-18-18.

Two big lo­cal restau­rant names, owner Jack Jack­son (Burt & Jack’s, Jack­son’s Steak­house) and chef Johnny Vinczencz (Johnny V) show they still have culi­nary game at this low key but el­e­gant din­ing room near Galt Ocean Mile.

Fort Laud­erdale Beach Blvd., (in­side the WHo­tel), Fort Laud­erdale. 954-414-8333. 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. Terra Mare — 551N. Fort Laud­erdale Beach Blvd., Fort Laud­erdale, 954-414-5160.
