Argentine Korean Confuson?

Has anyone heard of a new restaurant in Coral Springs called ChimiKimchi?
I drove by it on Sample Road. Sounds interesting. Wondering if anyone has gone and can report back. I'll try to get there soon, too!

bachelorette party help in the Grove

Thanks for your responses. We're actually having the rehearsal dinner at Calamari.
I did have lunch last week at Lulu and liked it a lot. I e-mailed them about having a large group,but haven't heard back yet.
Do you know where the college kids hang out at night? We are staying near CocoWalk and didn't want to have to rent a car...
Thanks so much!!!

bachelorette party help in the Grove

I need to plan a bachelorette party in the Grove and dinner (and after!) for a large group.
I live in Broward and know nothing about going out in Miami.
I need restaurant ideas that are not expensive, have a fun atmosphere, and can accommodate 20-ish
people (kids and Gramdmas for dinner, too)
Any after-dinner ideas are also appreciated.....
Thanks!

Dessert Restaurants?

I'm looking for a restaurant/cafe that specializes in desserts. It's for a baby shower this spring.
I would like a cupcake shop where you can eat there. Is there anything like that in the Broward/North Miami/Boca/Delray area?
Thanks!

The Village at Gulfstream Park

Texas de Brazil is pretty consistent. When you see what you get, you realize its around the same price as those other restaurants there.

Broward - All you can eat sushi

Shinju is definitely the place to go for a sushi buffet. We go to the one in Coral Springs.
They have fresh sushi, sashimi, nigiri, conch and seaweed salads, crab legs, great soups and a hibachi grill.
The quality is great and consistent. Its also a good place for little ones, but not overrun by kids.
As a plus (I think), there are always Asians eating there....

South Florida Help...

Hope someone can help...I'm looking for a restaurant in South Florida that I can best describe as a Flat Grill, Mongolian-style all you can eat Stir Fry..ok, so it is difficult to describe.

For anyone who has traveled the country, there is Flat Top Grill in Chicago, Fire and Ice in the the North East, used to be a place in St. Petersburg FL called The Dish, BDs Mongolian Grill is mostly Mid west as well...its basically an create your own stir fry kind of place (not an all you can eat Asian or Sushi place.) where you can add whatever meats, veggies, rice or pasta, and choose from dozens of sauces to create your own custom meal.

Does anyone know of a place like these in the S. FL area? Stir Crazy is the closest I have found, but this is more Wok-cooking than a Flat Grill, and to me has less choices, isn't as good, and isn't all you can eat.

Thanks

Mongolian BBQ

Are there any places in South Florida that have unlimited Mongolian BBQ? Kind of like Flat Top Grill in Chicago or Fire and Ice in Boston?

Good Greek food to try in Pompano

I absolutely LOVE My Big Fat Greek Restaurant!!
I live in northwest broward, and its definitely worth the commute!! Their platters and every dish I've tried are amazing and I've always had great service. They have bellydancing on the weekends too :) Great family place.

Coral Springs area recs - pizza

Pasquales is really really good. There's one by the new Lefty's on Coral Ridge and Westview and one on Royal Palm and Coral Springs Drive.
Also, in north Tamarac, just south of southgate is Ferro. We go out of the way for it. Awesome NY style :) Hope this helps...

Disney Dinner Recs Needed

There are lots of family restaurants you can get to without even getting in your car.
I always go to www.wdwmagic.com and they have restaurant menus on the site.

I highly recommend Boma, as well.(for breakfast, too) Totally unique eating experience. There is every kind of buffet and sit-down you can think of at Disney. Also check out the Disney Dining Plan when you get your tickets. I've never used it, but I've heard its a money saver.

Brazilian Churrascaria

Has anyone tried the new Fuegovivo in Sawgrass? How does it compare to Texas de Brazil? Is the price worth it, etc?
Thanks!

New Find in Boca

I recently tried the Modca Grill in Boca. Its a small Lebanese Restaurant. I saw it on the Dining Deals that Sun Sentinel puts out in Fridays and thought I'd give it a shot.

The service was absolutely horrible!! There was one server and one cook and only three tables had customers. We waited about 20 minutes to get a drink order and then our waters came out about 10 minutes later.

We ordered an appetizer and our meals. We sat and waited a long time (about 15 minutes)and then the server came out and told us they were out of what we ordered so we picked something else. The only reason we stayed was because we already bought the Dining Deals Coupon.

Well...it does get better...the food finally came out and was actually pretty good.
Just and FYI if you want to go there...Dont go in a rush :)

Top Restaurants?? - Weston, Plantation, Davie

I second LaBamba in Plantation. My favorite Mexican restaurant. Always packed and great margaritas! I recommend the skirt steak.
In Weston, the Cheese Course is pretty awesome.
Davie has Scruby's BBQ (awesome spare ribs).
Also, up the road near Sunrise is Shu Shin for great sushi....And Japan Inn in Weston isnt bad.

cheap eats around Boynton

I'm meeting some family in Boynton this weekend, and we're looking for an inexpensive lunch place (preferably not a chain). Maybe some local seafood, or an interesting "dive."

We will have a toddler too. Thanks!

What happened to Su Shin on University Drive??

I drove past there yesterday and there was a new sign below the restaurant name. It said that it was open for lunch and that it was sushi and thai....
I didnt know they did thai....Im guessing maybe new owners..
I hope they dont go downhill because that place was awesome in the past....
