The Chimney House

This neighborhood restaurant inside a 1924 historic home supplies Latin fusion in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Enjoy flavors from “Peru, Colombia, Argentina, Spain, and Guatemala with a high emphasis on quality ingredients.” Our favorites include the Wild-Caught Argentinian Red Shrimp and the Arroz Marinero. Pair them with one of their famous, House-made Sangria or go for our personal favorite, the jalapeńo Infused Margarita.

Local tip: The Chimney House is an excellent option for people who are looking for a delicious experience before a show at the Broward Center.
