Park & Ocean, 3109 E Sunrise Blvd., parkandocean.com, 954.563.2900
Park & Ocean sits in a shady grove on the southeast side of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, facing A1A and the ocean. Located in the park’s old, partially indoor beachside entrance, the place’s menu includes tacos, salads, burgers and fun bar food like the scrumptious, not-so-traditional grilled cheese sandwiches made with truffles, garlic shrimp and manchego cheese. There’s an extensive beer menu, including several local brewery favorites, as well as a good selection of wines and other beverages. You can also catch some live tunes – check the schedule, but Park & Ocean usually has live music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. That’s not counting the music of the lapping waves while you enjoy a cool beverage.
Point Royal 3555 S Ocean Dr., Hollywood, pointroyal-fl.com, 954.602.8750
When celebrity chef and restaurateur Geoffrey Zakarian was looking for a location for Point Royal, his new upscale-yet-casual restaurant and bar, he didn’t need to look any farther than the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood. The chic spot serves up coastal American cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, specializing in small plates. If you’re a seafood fanatic, we recommend the raw bar. To complete a meal, diners can sample from an indulgent dessert menu, have a drink or two from a bar that offers an extensive wine list and a number of signature cocktails – or just enjoy one of Hollywood’s prime spots.
