Crave Gfl Sets A Table For Success In Greater Fort Lauderdale

August 12, 2017 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

Greater Fort Lauderdale’s annual restaurant month is returning from September 1-30, 2017 with a new name. Crave GFL will celebrate the top restaurants, chefs, cuisine and culinary experiences in the destination by offering tasting events and specially created three-course gourmet dinner menus for $37 at more than 40 participating restaurants.

“Crave GFL is the perfect excuse for all foodies to make their way to Greater Fort Lauderdale to experience the latest culinary sensations, unexpected pairings and traditional offerings with a signature GFL twist,” said Stacy Ritter, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The natural beauty of our seaside community inspires chefs to create meals that are fresh and palate-pleasing. Our restaurants and cafes are taking their rightful place not only on the global cuisine stage, but also among our abundance of visitor attractions.”

In addition to the delicious deals, Crave GFL will feature special culinary events at select participating restaurants. Kuro at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will host a reception and dinner on September 26 starting at 6:30 p.m. For $125 per person (not including tax and gratuity), attendees will enjoy passed seared salmon sashimi and tuna crispy rice hors d’oeuvres followed by a five-course decadent meal featuring Hokkaido scallop, lobster tempura, seabass miso, wasabi tenderloin and a chocolate hazelnut bar all paired with selected wines.
