Fort Lauderdale Restaurant Openings and Closings

Looks like D Wade's is finally getting traded.
• The former Dogma Grill spot on Federal (900 S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale) has been boarded up and empty since the hot dog joint closed early last year. But the place seems to finally have new tenant: Domino's Pizza. A trademark Domino's sign was spotted in front of the building along with workers busy gutting the building's interior.

• Speaking of long-vacant edifices, D Wade's (1451 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale) finally got traded to a new team. Brick House Tavern and Tap, a sporty pub that crosses The Man Show with a beer bar, just signed on to the prime spot. We'll have more info on the bar later this week.

El Zocalo, a Margate restaurant designed to look like a Mexican courtyard, closed abruptly this March (1436 N. State Road 7). But now it's set to reopen with the same name but new management. The restaurant should be back in business come late September.

• It seems the former Samba Room space, vacant for all of ten days now, may already be spoken for (350 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Sources say a deal with an undisclosed restaurant group is in the final stages. We'll have the scoop once the ink is dry.

• Another Margate Mexican restaurant is kaput. That would be La Choza (6522 W. Atlantic Blvd.), which for years served standard-format Mexican and Spanish dishes. It has been replaced by Pupuseria El Proveedor, a Salvadoran eatery serving the country's national dish plus plenty of other authentic eats.
