Casa Sensei

Fort Lauderdale
Put in an advance order at the Pan-Asian and Latin American Casa and you can have meals delivered to a waiting gondola, for dinner while cruising the canals of the Venice of America, Fort Lauderdale. The fusion menu includes tiradito ceviche from the Japanese community in Peru, Brazilian bife à cavallo with fried rice, Korean bulgogi and Mexican mole. casasensei.com

Stinky’s Fish Camp

Santa Rosa Beach
The slogan says it best: “With a name like Stinky’s, it better be good.” Overlooking a coastal lake at Dune Allen Beach, this popular Panhandle restaurant combines the flavors of Florida and New Orleans. The menu features Apalachicola oysters, catfish meunière, pressed crab po’boys and a variety of crawfish in pies, hushpuppies, tamales and étouffée. Sunday brunchers will find house-made beignets and andouille. stinkysfishcamp.com

Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens

Delray Beach
The six stunning gardens that make up the 188-acre Morikami, established in 1977, are a tribute to the Yamato Colony, a Japanese farming community in South Florida from 100 years ago. The Cornell Café serves a lunch menu of pan-Asian enchantments, but the real joy is a traditional tea ceremony in the jewelbox Seishin-an Tea House on select Saturdays. morikami.org/museum/tea-house

A majestic environment of chamfered ceilings and rich red walls that surrounds superb versions of Creole and Cajun cuisine. Executive Chef James Williams brings talents learned at Commander’s Palace in New Orleans to dishes like snapper Oscar, rum-brined duck and, of course, crawfish étouffée. rouxtampa.com
