Fodor's Review

A Las Olas landmark, Big City Tavern is a consistent spot for good food, good spirits, and good times. The diverse menu commingles Asian entrées like pad Thai, Italian options like homemade meatballs and cheese ravioli in a toasted garlic marinara, and American dishes like the grilled skirt-steak Cobb salad. Don't forget to ask about the crispy flatbread of the day, and make sure to save room for the homemade desserts. The pistachio brown-butter bundt cake with honey-roasted spiced peaches and pistachio gelato, the caramelized banana sundae in a mason jar, and the devil's-food-cake ice-cream sandwich are all heaven on Earth. Big City is open late into the night for drinks, desserts, and even offers a special late-night menu.
