Himmarshee Public House, an Upscale "Sports Lounge," Opens This Week in Fort Lauderdale
The bacon and corn fritters ($8) are a dish that is sure to be a hit during games: a finger food worthy of its decadence. Just make sure you dip them in the bacon aioli or you'll miss out on a lot of the unique flavors. In addition to corn fritters, the buffalo blue-cheese dip ($9) is probably one of the most approachable small plates available, made with pulled chicken, a mix of Stilton blue cheese and Colby-Jack and served with wonderfully light and crisp homemade potato chips.
Doug Fairall Succulent candied bacon: Duroc pork belly, candied pecans, bourbon maple syrup.
Hoping for the best on the lobster nachos ($14), I was struck by the high acidity of habanero-mango salsa and the guacamole that accompanied each of the four giant tortillas. Lobster, being such a delicate flavor, seemed to get lost in the shuffle. The mini-chicken empanadas ($8) were more refined and had a fluffy pastry crust and simply but well-done contents of roasted corn, black beans, and jalapeño jack cheese.
