Those familiar with the pre-2014 iteration of Shooters Waterfront (3033 NE 32nd Ave, Fort Lauderdale) remember the concept as one of bikini-clad parties, lots of alcohol, and somewhat sub-par bar food. While a concept such as that one is always fun (who in South Florida doesn’t love beach-themed parties?!), quality of the menu tends to suffer, as most creative resources are allocated to making sure people are having fun. February 2014, the more mature Shooters Waterfront opened under new ownership and renovations. Along with some stunning visual changes, the menu became more refined and upscale. It was quite the drive for me coming from Miami, but I was delightfully surprised with what I sampled.
Guys, it’s November! We can hardly believe that we’re fully in the throes of #HalloThanksMas, but such is life. This is a pretty intense month for us at MMTM Headquarters with Mel furiously prepping for The Latin GRAMMYs show in Las Vegas on November 17th and Mitch recovering from his brother’s wedding last weekend and heading out on the road for a few work trips as well. While we may not be around much, there’s actually so much taking place that we’ve separated out a special Thanksgiving round-up that we’ll have for you next Wednesday. In the meantime, here’s our round-up some of the best foodie events taking place this month. Enjoy!

It certainly seems like the MMTM team has been on a bit of a brunch kick lately. With recent brunch visits to Nikki Beach, Pinch, Izzy’s, and Drunken Dragon, Sundays (and sometimes Saturdays) have unofficially become our favorite day of the week. However, a recent (and rare) trip outside of Miami-Dade County gave whole new meaning to #SundayFunday when I took a “daycation” to the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale for brunch at Burlock Coast.
