Truluck’s launches lunch service at The Galleria

If you’re bemoaning the closing of Truluck’s at Mizner Park (just before this venue won a Wine Spectator award, too!), then you’re in luck if you don’t mind driving a bit south.

Truluck’s Seafood, Steak and Crab House in Fort Lauderdale’s Galleria has been around a while, and just started serving lunch as well as dinner. Dishes include sashimi salad, beef tenderloin medallions, Faroe Island salmon, lobster roll, farmhouse burger and more, as well as a prix-fixe, three-course menu for $30. There’s also a Truluck’s in Miami. Breathe.

Beachfront Dune hosts preview for first-look crowd

The new Auberge Beach Residences & Spa in Fort Lauderdale is opening its Dune restaurant officially on Nov. 30.

The property has been built in part by The Related Group (builder of CityPlace, among other Palm Beach County properties).
