8. Lobster Bar & Sea Grille

Occupying the space that housed Jackson's Steakhouse for years, this place is filling the void for high-end cuisine that was left in its wake. The classic steak-house decor was switched out for shiny white subway tiles, warm woods, and vintage-inspired light fixtures, reminiscent of the old-school oyster bars from back in the day. The menu, however, is the opposite of antiquated: The food has been hailed as some of the best on the block in dishes like razor clam and scallop ceviche, flash fried lobster tails, and Mediterranean octopus. Sure, it's pricey, but its style and substance are hard to come by.

7. Green Bar & Kitchen

A great dish doesn't need to include meat or gluten: This place is proof. Opened in early February, this Fort Lauderdale vegan and gluten-free spot has been garnering a following of health-conscious eaters since day one. Dishes like the Buffalo Tempeh Sandwich ($8) and the GBK Burger ($10), made in-house with brown rice, chickpeas, quinoa, carrot, onion, and parsley, and sunflower seeds as a binder with a spicy chipotle sauce, are enough to satiate even the most die-hard carnivore. With South Floridians' newfound awareness of health and wellness, it's no surprise that this place is always packed -- and we hope to see the trend expand in 2014.

Rodney, has been one of the most inspiring entrepreneurs in South Florida for the past 25 years. Especially, since he began everything with an extreme DYI, learning by doing, mentally. He should be acknowledged at even much higher level in comparison than any other restaurateur in area. No one other person has such an extreme hands on understanding of these industries more than this guy.
