The $16 Truffle Ahi Tartar

There's been a recent surge in interest in restaurants on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Whether it's lack of space elsewhere, a recovering economy, or restaurateurs realizing that the area could use more options, something is happening.

If you're looking to get away from the average takeout theme, the Westin Beach Resort's Amatsu Sushi & Sake offers healthy Japanese cuisine right across the street from the beach.
