Ritz-Carlton, 1 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd.
AWARD: Golden Spoon
It is the Ritz, but Burlock Coast was designed to smuggle rough and rustic food into a grand hotel at un-hotel prices. For all her celebrity glam, Paula DaSilva is a perfect bootlegger to scour the waters and local farms for home-spun and city-slick eating: Tempura grouper to coriander-crusted cobia. Black-eyed peas and pork belly meet crispy yucca and shishito peppers. Best fish-camp drink: Old-fashioned with house-made mamajuana.
