Fort Lauderdale, Fla.–Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach recently revealed details on its new restaurant, Steelpan, a kitchen and bar, opening later this year. The Continental Caribbean cuisine concept is inspired by the multicultural island flavors of South Florida. The oceanfront restaurant will have an indoor, outdoor dining experience.
Led by Executive Chef Thomas Russo, Steelpan will introduce a fresh and tropical menu that features savory appetizers, small bites, and entrées, including local seafood and produce, island bowls, and inventive spins on familiar favorites. For a twist on classic and tropical cocktails, the Steelpan mixology team will serve up handcrafted concoctions in a fun and unexpected presentation.
“We are very excited about 2018 at Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach,” Eduardo Fernandez, general manager of Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach, says. “Steelpan will feature an innovative experience in a laid-back atmosphere that will truly showcase the restaurant’s ideal coastal location.”
