Ten Best Suburban Restaurants in Broward

Cities tend to get all the cred when it comes to dining.

It's usually the downtown areas and restaurant strips that host all the trendy bars and eateries -- hey, that's just the way it is. For the most part, if you're looking for chef-driven fare, emerging concepts, great cocktails, or craft beer, you have to drive (or walk) to where all the action is.

And in South Florida, those city-like locales are unsurprisingly located closer to the beach, usually east of I-95. As a result, those eastern eateries tend to get most of the media attention as well. We've decided to spread the love.

With 1.8 million residents in Broward County, only 170,000 or so of whom reside in Fort Lauderdale, plenty of great dining options are spread throughout the area.

Here are the ten best suburban restaurants, west of I-95, in Broward County.

10. D'Angelo Pizza Tapas Wine Bar

Even among the big wigs out east, this place ranks high on the list. The Weston outpost of celebrity chef Angelo Elia's casual eatery, D'Angelo Pizza Tapas Wine Bar offers the same rustic Tuscan cuisine as its sister restaurant in Oakland Park. It's full of affordable tapas, ceviches, pizzas, salads, calzones, and other traditional Italian eats -- and all appear to be crafted with the same attention to detail that has helped Angelo's fine-dining restaurants in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton flourish.

9. Big Bear Brewing

South Florida does not have many brewpubs -- to the chagrin of beer snobs. But Coral Springs has one that makes up for the paucity. At this locally owned restaurant and brewpub, patrons can find seven house-brewed beers on draft, such as the Grizzly Red Ale and the Kodiac Belgian Dubbel. The place even took home awards from the U.S. Open Beer Championship. Even so, the brewmasters like to keep it fresh; the offered brews are on a constant rotation, keeping the microbatches fully flavored and intense. Although the brew is the main attraction, the food most certainly matches. The pub-style fare is comforting and delicious, and its beer muenster cheese soup is so good, it ranked number seven of our 100 Favorite Dishes just a couple of years back.

Even still, indictment seems all bizzare. The guy is many, many, many things I'm just not sure he's a criminal. Even liberals seem to think the thing is shaky. Let's just let the guy finish his term so I dnt have to keep listening to him? Just because I dnt care for him as a politician doesn't give me the right to criminalize his politics. That's the conservative in me.Edit (in 5 minutes)

Also, Marumi is amazing. The only sushi place that you can get sockeye salmon sushi instead of just farm raised grossness.
