The locals have discovered a favorite with this eatery, conveniently located just blocks from downtown and easy to find from anywhere in Fort Lauderdale at 701-1 South Federal Highway.
What started out as a simple idea as a friendly neighborhood takeout joint in a prime location in the heart of the city has become a full-service dining destination.

Welcoming and comfortable, New River Grill & Pizza is friendly, with excellent service and a great vibe. So the choice to dine in is ideal for lunch, dinner or after hours. It's great, too, for a family get-together, fun date or even a business meeting.
Focused on the finest comfort foods with the freshest ingredients, New River Grill & Pizza's mouth-watering menu is a magnet for those who expect the very best.
Their extensive menu features over 40 new dishes, along with some of the city's best New York-style pizzas – with house favorites like Heart Attack and Tree Hugger and The Ranch, as well as Traditional, White Pizza, Hawaiian, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, the oh-so-good Truffle Oil Pizza and Fig and Pig, among others.
There's ample reason to try each one. Remember, too, that gluten-free 12-inch pizzas are now available!
If it's not pizza that's the craving, peruse the menu. Available is an amazing list that's truly hard to choose from, such as flatbreads, tacos, quesadillas and a long list of amazing salads – like Greek Village, The Cobb, Sesame Tuna, Mango Shrimp, Caesar and even Tomato Watermelon.
Who could turn these down?
There's also a great selection of wraps, paninis and sandwiches. Now, while it may take a few trips back to sample all of them, it's certainly worth the effort.
Try from the naan bread sandwiches: the house favorite The Greek, or perhaps the Chipotle Ranch Club or the Tuscan Chicken. From the choices of sandwiches, perhaps it will be the Cold Turkey Sub, Chicken Parmigiana, Eggplant Parmigiana or the the Chicken Po' Boy.
New River Grill & Pizza also offers a variety of half-pound burgers, sliders and unique and satisfying entrees. The list here will convince you that this is no ordinary pizza joint with a few side items.
Order the Sesame Seared Rare Yellowfin Tuna, Nana's Meat Lasagna, Chicken Marsala or perhaps the Blackened Shrimp Pasta. There's even more.
Stick around for dessert. You'll always have room.
Choose from the tiramisu; Key lime pie (What's a trip to South Florida without a taste of Key lime pie?); or one of the bananas foster chimichangas.
It's good to remember, too, that this place is open long after the clubs have closed. But why wait until then? Stop in and discover what the locals already know.
