Visiting long time friends in Ft. Lauderdale last weekend and my host suggested lunch at the Ritz Carlton. "I often go to the beach on Saturday's and come across the street here to relax, watch people and enjoy lunch." Parking was a challenge and after circling for awhile, we pulled into the portico and were delighted to use the valet parking for hotel guests, we thought $7 was a great deal and much easier than the hassle of trolling for an empty parking space. My companion enjoyed the lobster sandwich and i greatly enjoyed the chicken, provolone and bacon on brioche. Instead fries, a lovely fruit dish with blackberries, blueberries, melon, and pineapple was offered and I ate every bit. We sat and visited with each other, enjoying lunch, and watching the world go by.
