Beauty & The Feast At The Atlantic Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach

And from the creators of ultra-lounge SoLita Las Olas and SoLita Delray comes, Beauty & The Feast Bar/Kitchen. This team of entrepreneurs certainly does not lack creativity nor the ability to work hard to make it happen. I’ve known Steven Dapuzzo and company for four years now, since SoLita Las Olas opened its doors.

Society 8 Hospitality Group, a.k.a. The SoLita Guys, have taken over the food and beverage operation at The Atlantic Hotel on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The restaurants within the hotel are Beauty & The Feast and the Ocean Market Grille. Last week a handful of media were invited to a menu tasting and a tour of the property.

Pretty much after sampling the entire menu, its safe to say Beauty & The Feast is not fast-food, beach food nor is it swanky dining that will break the bank, but rather more of what “the beach” has been positioning itself towards for some time; welcoming, moderately priced and accommodating venues that appeal to residents and visitors alike. If you’re a fan of SoLita you will see a few favorites on the Beauty & The Feast menu, (as well as some of the decor). Some of tasting highlights included edamame ($6) served warm and tossed in soy, ginger, garlic sauce; crispy chicken sliders ($11.50); lamb chops with rosemary and garlic ($15.50); the surprise of the night, fried sun chokes ($8) with roasted garlic and olive oil, hands down our table loved them and was trying to share accordingly; mussels white ($12.50) (because there is a mussels red) steamed in white wine; crispy brussels sprouts ($7.50), and a roasted pig ($24 per person) served table-side. This is available for four or more, as a whole or half [suckling pig] and is served with black beans and rice. You’ll need to place your reservation 48 hours in advance to order the roast pig dinner.

Happy Hour is 4 to 7 p.m., Monday – Friday with discounted drinks and a bar menu. The bar area is handsomely sexy, think a rustic SoLita, but the lounge area and terrace, is where its at if you’re one to take in the view of the Atlantic. The Ocean Market Grille has one of the most dynamic unobstructed views of the the ocean, making it ideal for a lunch getaway with obvious perks. And the best part, your parking is validated. 100%.
