A charming slice of Americana in the heart of Las Olas Boulevard, American Social flaunts a sexy nerd vibe, packing the house nightly with Fort Lauderdale's hottest twenty- and thirtysomethings. The intimate restaurant and bar are adorned with framed Life magazine covers and library books, fostering an ambience that is oh-so-Boston. The drinks here rock, and the modern American cuisine is equally awesome. Choose from 16 beers on tap or some tantalizing mixology (e.g. the Strawberry Honey Smash—vodka, strawberries, simple syrup, honey liqueur, and fresh lemon juice). Feast on the seafood mac-and-cheese skillet, shrimp pesto flatbread, and the full gamut of gourmet burgers with sides of Parmesan and truffle fries or sweet-potato fries. Arrive early on weekends as the restaurant quickly reaches capacity.
