As Valentine's Day approaches, loving couples all across South Florida are busy trying to plan on how to celebrate their love and devotion. Some people plan an evening out on Feb. 14, while others try to work out a way to make the magic last a bit longer by celebrating either before or after the big day. For those of you who believe that the way to someone's heart truly is through their stomach, and who also believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, perhaps a delightful brunch at the Blue Moon Fish Co. should be in your future.
Voted best waterfront dining experience in Ft. Lauderdale on Zagat, Opentable, and the Sun Sentinel, Blue Moon is now serving a new ala carte brunch every Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., complete with over seven different Bloody Marys.
Blue Moon is already known for their award-winning buffet style brunch every Sunday, and now foodies can feed their cravings all weekend long with the addition of their Saturday brunch. Rather than the buffet style of their Sunday brunch, Blue Moon has crafted a short menu of delicious dishes, which can be shared, for their Saturday offering.
The main dishes include brunch classics and new creations alike, starting with a Potato and Parsnip Latkes ($14), with brie-‐white wine sauce house cured gravlax and chive creme fraiche. The traditional brunch staple of Crabcake Eggs Benedict ($16) will take on renewed significance to diners with its cayenne cilantro hollandaise sauce. The patrons looking for a sweet treat will delight their palate with their mouthwatering Nutella and Banana Stuffed Egg Nog French Toast ($18), crusted with corn flakes and almonds and served with smoked Nueske bacon. The adventurous foodie will be drawn to the new Egg White and Lump Crab Burrito ($15) complete with spinach, avocado butter and pico de gallo, while those with a smaller appetite can experience a taste explosion from the Lobster Quiche Lorraine ($17) with brie and their special white wine sauce. For those who show up with a full appetite intact will likely head straight for the Magic Mushroom Burger ($17), consisting of a crispy pork belly, goat cheese, mushroom and sunny-side up farmer's eggs, and fries to make sure you don't leave hungry.
