Some fun and delicious dining places to try with several options to choose from. The towns included are Oakland Park, Sunrise, Parkland and Weston.
The one in Parkland has two dining establishments next to each other, one is a coal fire pizza restaurant, and the other a fish place and bar. The highlight is the outdoor seating in the back which is by a waterway and the outdoor seating for the pizza restaurant also has kind of rocking lounge seat with table and covered on top and on the backs. This looks comfy and fun and private. It seats four. There is also seating in the front of the restaurant where you have a view of the plaza’s water fountain. Then in Oakland is a sushi place, in Sunrise a Persian restaurant with music, dance and entertainment and finally in Weston a hotel resort in a beautiful oasis.
Check out the list with photos for all the details.
Writer’s note: I was especially pleased at Giovanni’s Coal Fire Pizza, recently ate there on a Friday afternoon. The Mediterranean pizza was so delicious and the staff are second to none. Perfect service. If you’re in the Parkland area I think you will love the experience at this restaurant. (They also have locations in Sunrise, I’ve only seen and tried the Parkland location)
Tokyo Sushi Bar and Hibachi that offers unique and delicious sushi, it is a small place with nice, cozy ambiance. They have outdoor seating too. The prices are medium ranged and offer happy hour deals. From the outside it looks like a regular place until you enter inside and are caught in the inviting.

Both offer lunch and dinner menus.They have outdoor seating in the front as well as the back, and both are nice but the back gives a little more privacy and is along the waterway.
