As part of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau’s CRAVE GFL Restaurant Month, restaurants along Fort Lauderdale Beach’s famed Wave Wall hosted 100 guests for their inaugural Taste the Wave Fort Lauderdale Beach Tasting Tour on Thursday, October 5 from 6:30 – 10:30pm.

Featuring bites and sips from a dozen restaurants, guests traversed the coastal dining destination aboard an air-conditioned Sun Trolley, stopping along the three-mile route to sample signature bites and meet some of the chefs, who helped place the area best known for sun and sand, on the culinary map.

Greeted with a welcome cocktail and wine provided by Bahia Mar, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., and Ocean 2000, four groups were led by a personal tour guide on a culinary journey from various start locations. Stops included at 3030 Ocean, Atlantic Grill, Bistro, Burlock Coast, Naked Crab, Siren’s Table, Spazio, Steak 954 and Tsukuro to sample signature bites.

“Over the last few years Greater Fort Lauderdale, and Fort Lauderdale Beach especially, has developed a culinary scene which rivals some of the great ‘dining destinations’ in the U.S.,” stated Eduardo Fernandez, general manager of Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach and Chair of the Beach Business Improvement District (BID). “From fine dining options to casual watering holes, Fort Lauderdale Beach boasts over 50 options to enjoy a great meal or kick back with a cocktail – all with an ocean view.”

Priced at $75.00 per person, tickets included Valet and Self-Parking, Air-conditioned Transportation, a Keepsake Beach Bag, all taxes and online ticketing Service Charges.

Plans for upcoming Taste the Wave experiences, hosted and organized by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce Beach Council Marketing Board are underway. For updates on new tours and purchase tickets, visit www.TasteTheWaveFLB.com
