Hardy Park Bistro
New American Restaurant
This tiny, stylish restaurant near downtown Ft. Lauderdale is headed up by Chef Philip Darmon, who spent a solid chunk of his career cooking on yachts for the rich and famous. It helped him garner a cult following in South Florida, ultimately leading to the opening of his sophisticated Hardy Park. The menu here is constantly changing, so you'll have to check the chalkboard daily, but if you want to sample the staples that have made this place famous, go for the HPB Burger with crispy onions and tomato chutney, or the hoisin-glazed duck breast.
