Sensei house

Fort Lauderdale
When you pre-order at the Pan-Asian and Latin American Casa, you can have your dinner meals brought to a waiting gondola as you cruise the canals of the Venice of America, Fort Lauderdale. The fusion menu contains Tiradito Ceviche from the Japanese community in Peru, Brazilian Steak on horseback with fried rice, Korean Bulgogi and mexican Mole.

Stinky’s fish store

Santa Rosa Beach
The slogan says it best, “With a name like Stinky’s, it’s better to be good.” Overlooking a coastal lake on Dune Allen Beach, this popular panhandle restaurant combines the flavors of Florida and New Orleans. Apalachicola oysters and catfish are on the menu meunière, pressed crab po’boys and a variety of lobsters in cakes, hushpuppies, tamales and suffocated. Sunday brunches will find homemade fritters and andouille.

Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens

Delray Beach
The six breathtaking gardens that make up 188-acre Morikami, founded in 1977, pay homage to the Yamato Colony, a Japanese farming community in south Florida 100 years ago. The Cornell Café serves a lunch menu with Pan-Asian enchantments, but the real delight is a traditional jewelry box tea ceremony Seishin-an Tea house on selected Saturdays.

A majestic setting with sloped ceilings and rich red walls that surrounds superb versions of Creole and Cajun cuisine. Chef James Williams brings the talents learned at Commander’s Palace in New Orleans to dishes like snapper Oscar, duck with rum and, of course, lobster suffocated.
