With grown kids who have lives, we were taxi'd to BWI at around 2 for our 4:20 flight to FLL. I asked TA for suggestions as to the best non-fast food place to grab an early dinner at the terminal. I had decided that Vino Volo looked like a winner, but once hubby checked out the frou-frou menu, he nixed it. So, we ended up going across the way to Villa Fresh Italian. It was surprisingly good! I ordered the lasagna and had the Mediterranean salad. The lasagna was cheesy, with chunks of sausage. Layers and layers of noodles. The salad was fresh and crisp. Hubby got pepperoni pizza. A big slice. Not typical food court food, but in a food court setting. After our meal, we walked further on down the pier to Obryckis A Bar for a cocktail and to watch the planes. My Lemon Drop martini was icy cold and delicious. My husband enjoyed his Gin and Tonic.
Our flight boarded with no problems and we arrived at Ft Lauderdale near 7 pm. Picked up our car and headed to the nearby Davie Holiday Inn Express for the night. Not much nearby in the way of dining, but there was a Waffle House next door. (Waffle House is our go to motorcycle trip food stop when we're riding somewhere.)
We walked over for dinner. Patty melts with smothered, and covered hash browns. Washed down with southern style suh-weet tea. Back to our room to chill out, web and channel surfing. This was just the prelude to vacation.
As a teaser... we stopped at Ma's Fish Camp in Islamorada TWICE (going and returning from KW) it was that good. In Key West, we ate at El Maison de Pepe, Le Croissants France, Cuban Coffee Queen, B.O.s Fish Wagon, Two Friends Patio Restaurant, Fat Tuesday, Hot Tin Roof, Santiago's Bodega, Camille's, Dante's, Point 5 (the upstairs wine bar at Nine One Five), Schooner Wharf Bar, Conch Republic, Rooftop Cafe (for our Anniversary Dinner), Better Than Sex Dessert Restaurant (for after dinner wine), Sarabeth's (twice for breakfast, it was that good), Sunset Pier, Mangia Mangia, Cafe Marquesa for after dinner cocktails.
