Now you don’t have to go north to New York City for gourmet south-of-the-border food. From showy entrée presentations to an ultra hip, upscale ambiance, a posh Mexican restaurant is bringing its sexy downtown cantina to the beach.
The Big Apple and B.R. Guests Restaurants’ famed haute Mexican Dos Caminos is set to open its sixth location in Ft. Lauderdale this November at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach, featuring a mouth-watering menu by executive chef and Mod Mex author Scott Linquist.
This stylized Mexican eatery will quickly turn into the exclusive after-work/weekend stamping ground, thanks to its overflowing bowls of chips and salsa as well as the restaurant’s extensive tequila and margarita menus as created by Eben Klemm, mixologist and author of The Cocktail Primer.
The dining menu is old Mexico meets modern cuisine, boasting traditional favorites like giant mortars of guacamole made fresh tableside, vegetable quesadilla, empanadas and enchiladas as well as eclectic, vibrant fares, such as the Lamb Barbacoa (slow-roasted adobo marinated lamb with roasted fingerling potatoes and a jalapeno and mint salsita) and the Cochinita Pibil (slow-roasted pork with sautéed plantains, habanero pickled onions, achiote sauce).
The restaurant will host 290 guests (200 inside and 90 outside) on an oceanfront setting. The Dos Caminos walls will be decorated by a collection of black and white images by Murray Hall, which are mounted in salvaged plywood, encased in resin and pay respect to traditional Mexican textures, landscapes and culture. Mural overlays and graffiti art from artist Benefic Dos Remedios will also add to the colorful and lively aesthetics.
Dos Caminos Ft. Lauderdale will open seven days a week for brunch, lunch and dinner. For more information, visit www.brguestrestaurants.com.
