Kathryn says: Jamie, Mom and I went for a girls’ lunch out at Himmarshee Bar & Grille (210 SW 2nd Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301).

It was absolutely delicious, by far one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to.  The flavors of the food were so rich and intense.  The price was quite reasonable for the quality.

Pretty much everything on the menu looked good, so we got two appetizers and a salad for starters.

Mom requested an item that is normally on the dinner menu – the stuffed dates.  We ate those first, and it was by far our favorite part of the meal.

Next came the amazing salad.  I loved the crunchy bread crumbs baked onto the goat cheese.

Then came the interesting polenta fries – interesting because I’d never heard of them before.  They were plain, but I dipped them in ketchup.  Puntos for the cool presentation though.

And on to the main courses!
I got a delectable grilled vegetable pizzanini – a cross between a pizza and a panini.  Sliced green squash, red peppers, tomatoes, arugula and goat cheese with balsamic on Focaccia bread.  With thin, crispy, salty garlic chips.  I’m not usually a fan of chips but I couldn’t stop eating these!

Jamie got the tuna burger with cucumber seaweed salad.  Both were very flavorful and full of oriental spice.

Mom got macaroni and cheese with crab and truffle sauce.  Amazing, but a bit rich.

No room for dessert.  Besides, we had it first (those dates)!
