Burlock Coast Restaurant By Chef Gavin Pera To Open In The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale This November
As part of the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale's $8 million renovation, we'll have a new oceanfront restaurant to enjoy next month.
Burlock Coast, named for the burlock bag that bootlegger Bill McCoy used to transport his rum overseas during the Prohibition era, is set to open on the ground floor of The Ritz in November, only steps away from the Atlantic.
The rustic Prohibition-themed restaurant will feature an indoor/outdoor bar, a marketplace offering artisanal goods, and a menu by Chef de Cuisine Gavin Pera that relies on ingredients from local farmers and fishermen.
"We have some truly talented people in South Florida producing delicious food and drink with passion and an attention to detail we admire,” Pera said in a press release. “We love what they’re about and aim to do the same with what comes out of our kitchen and bar when Burlock Coast opens.”
The marketplace and restaurant will offer fresh breads from Zak the Baker, bags of roasted beans or hot cups of coffee from Panther Coffee, and charcuterie selections from Miami Smokers.
Tatiana Lora, the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale’s area communications manager, told Fort Lauderdale Daily back in June that the concept would be “casual chic, with good food, a good ambiance and good cocktails, where you’ll be able to enjoy the view.”
The bar will offer a robust rum program with French, Caribbean and Spanish selections, and restaurant guests will be able to build their own cocktail from a rum cart that will be pushed around the dining room.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served daily.
