Restaurant Description

As you drive towards the beach on Commercial Boulevard, you can't help but notice the newest art gallery/cafe to hit the area, Art & Design Cafe. The window showcase, featuring eye-catching original works of art, is just a small sampling of what is going on inside.

When you walk through the front door you become overwhelmed with the artistic ambiance of the entire showroom. Take a table behind the flowing curtains with a colorful chandelier overhead. The plates and napkins are recycled from thrift stores or lovingly chosen at yard sales. Affordable pricing and professionalism, along with the highest level of customer service, is the philosophy that owner/ artist Vincent Byrnes prides himself on.

Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, Art & Design Café offers an assortment of delights while you bask in what could be South Florida's most unique and visually impressive restaurant décor and ambiance. The restaurant is adorned by local art available for purchase. "You sit among the art to eat and if you like it, you buy it," Ginger Coopersmith, owner/partner, explains.

"Design Your Own" salad or choose from a wonderful variety of panini's, signature salads (all named after famous artists such as Monet's Vegetarian Salad), and appetizing entrees such as Seared Ahi Tuna, Romanian Skirt Steak, Filet Mignon, and Ginger's unrivaled Veal Piccata served with Pesto Pasta, Asparagus, and Roasted Peppers.

Art & Design is not just an art gallery and café; it's a full-service design center, coupled with its affiliate Millennium Design Group. Their main priority is to help people achieve the look and feel they want in their homes or businesses without breaking the bank. Art & Design and its affiliate, Millennium Design Group, have cemented a niche in this market by utilizing your existing furnishings and introducing art, fabrics, and accessories to the room to help you complete your look.

A diner from Fort Lauderdale, FL gave an overall rating of 5  out of 5 stars on September 19, 2010 @ 12:06 AM

 I bought the $50 for $25 on Groupon yesterday and checked out Art & Design Cafe on line. My boyfriend and I ate there tonight and I couldn't wait to get home and write a review! Ginger met us at the door with hugs(being from south MS, I really ate that up!) She showed us to our "private" table(all tables are surrounded by floor to ceiling sheer curtains) with our own flat panel tv and beautiful art everywhere you look. Steve was our server and he did a fantastic job. I had the filet and my bf had the veal. Both dishes were to die for! Oh yeah, the baked brie appitizer was FABULOUS as well! What a wonderful experience...We will certainly return
