With an interesting twist on the national craze for food trucks, Plaza Bistro in North Beach Village offers an elegant eatery al fresco.
At first glance, Plaza Bistro appears to be a stop for a food truck with tables and chairs around an empty parking lot for hungry patrons. But on second look, this restaurant is a stationary eatery and what appears to be the food truck is actually the kitchen where some amazing culinary delights are prepared. Tables are covered with linens, which makes this an even more intimate setting.
Located on the corner in the pleasant neighborhood of North Beach Village at 2900 Belmar Street, a block from Fort Lauderdale Beach or a short drive from Downtown Fort Lauderdale, Plaza Bistro appeals to this emerging neighborhood with its amazing menu, live entertainment, and a lounge area where patrons can enjoy the ambiance amidst the tropical breezes under the starry sky.
With an array of starters including calamari, bruschetta or brick fire pita chips and hummus, delicious salads sure to include everyone's favorites of balsamic caesar, cobb or caprease, diners are then ready for the main course. And what an amazing selection there is. Try the chicken club sandwich, the tantalizing bistro burger or the delicious falafel.
You'll swear you're at a top-notch steakhouse with their amazing selection of sizzling steaks that include herb-crusted lamb, hanger steak and braised pork loin. Seafood selections, pasta, brick oven pizza and desserts of old-fashioned apple pie, crème brulee cheesecake, key lime pie, or gelato and sorbet will bring this meal to an amazing end.
Don't rush away, though. Stay and enjoy a glass of wine and take in the live music and even make new friends. Also remember that happy hour is from 5-6 pm.
