Farm-to-table cuisine docks in Fort Lauderdale at Market 17, a handsome space on the17th Street Causeway that’s the brainchild of hospitality industry vets Aaron Grauberger (Seasons 52) and his sister Kirsta Grauberger (Johnny V.) Executive chef is Daniel Ramos (The Sunday House). They aim to snare epicureans with locally sourced, eco-friendly eats and hard-to-find boutique wines. The low-key dining room is outfitted in warm woods, pale green banquettes and vibrant artwork. A small, covered patio is nicely shielded from the parking lot. Prices are reasonable given the territory, with starters $9-$13 and mains in the mid $30s with half-portion options. The house-smoked trout comes on a bed of red potatoes, chopped farm egg and olives and is doused with a lemon vinaigrette. A meaty hunk of red snapper is nestled on a bed of black barley with a fennel sauce to cut the richness of the fish. Desserts include a delicate Key lime mousse and house-made pumpkin ice cream. Available nightly, Dining in the Dark lets up to 12 adventurers dine, sans light, on a tasting menu served in a room outfitted with blackout curtains by waiters wearing night-vision goggles. Market 17, 1850 SE 17th St., Fort Lauderdale; 954-399-0017. Sara Liss, Miami.com
