New Restaurant Reviews

We located two new restaurants that we really enjoyed. The first one is called Le Creperie. It is a fantastic French Restaurant located at 4589 N University DrLauderhill, FL 33351.
It is family owned and operated. The husband is their chef and his wife his the hostess. My husband and I took our friends there one Thursday evening. On Thursdays they have an amazing 5-course dinner. From the moment you walk in it is a very friendly atmosphere. You are greeted and seated right away. We had reservations but my husband asked if we could be seated at another table and they changed our table for us.

I had never tried escargot before and it was on the menu so I was going to try that for sure. I found out that I LOVE escargot! We had our choice of Escargot Maison, Moules Farcies, Pate du Chef Lulu or Soup du Jour ou Soupe de Poisson. Our next course was a salad course. Choice of Garden Salad or Caesar Salad. I chose the Caesar Salad it was very good. Next came the main course. We had a choice of Trout Bretonne, Pepper Steak, Duck with Berry Sauce, Chicken Francaise or Seafood au Gratin. I ordered the Duck with Berry Sauce and it was amazing! I haven't had duck since I prepared it myself back in Indiana.Next they brought out a fruit and cheese plate that was equally good. We all had either red or white wine and it was also very nice. McWilliams Shiraz or Chardonnay.

We dined at our leisure. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs. You didn't feel rushed for time while dining there, which I really enjoyed. Most restaurants bring you your bill before you have even finished your meal, I've had that happen before.

Then our last course was dessert. My husband and I had a choice duo of chocolate Mousse and Cream Brulee. I had never tried Cream Brulee before either. It was so rich and wonderful! I would have to give the service, restaurant and their food a 5 star rating for sure. It was some of the best food I have tasted in South Florida.

The second restaurant review is a great German restaurant called Old Heidelberg.
It's at 900 W. State Road 84/Marina Mile Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315
We just went there the other night with dear friends from our church. I ordered a dark lager beer that was so delicious! I had their pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes, red cabbage and a side order of fresh spatzle. Great German decor and live German music was playing. If you want a taste of unique German food this would be the place to go.

Enjoy original German Cuisine. Old Heidelberg offers a distinct selection of appetizers, soups and entrees to satisfy every taste, including Daily Specials and seasonal dishes. They offer wines to accommodate every meal. And don't forget to check out there selection of mouth-watering desserts!
