As the temperatures rise and all the snowbirds and tourists leave, local restaurants are happy to make a deal. So, Let’s look at what ‘s behind door number one.

Greater Fort Lauderdale Restaurant Month also known as Crave, now extends from August to September as the area’s top restaurants present specially created three-course gourmet dinner menus starting at $35, many also offer lunch specials for $10 less. A full list of participating restaurants (see side bar) and, in many cases, the special menus being offered, are available at sunny.org/dining-and-nightlife/restaurants/restaurantmonth/

            Behind door number two is Flavor Palm Beach County.

However, just as with Crave Fort Lauderdale, many places are also offering lunch options for $20-$25. (See sidebar for participating restaurants).
