La Nacional: Although this place may look a little dumpy on the outside, it's what's on your plate that really matters here. The tapas here are the most authentic I've tasted since living in Spain (no joke), and they even carry the elusive tinto de verano ($6). Spaniards - you know what I'm talking about (red wine w/ sparkling lemonade for those who don't). Order up a bunch of small plates or splurge on paella...either way, you'll go home happy.
Luzzo's: Venture into the cozy confines of chef Michele Iuliano's first of three NYC restaurants for some divine snacking. His Neapolitan pizza is deliciously light and won't leave you three sizes bigger post-meal. The joint is small, but gives off a warm vibe as if you were in a small, friendly Italian village. You know this place is the bee's knees when a long time customer thought the food was so good he had to become a part-owner (true story!).
No, not Hollwood, California! Hollywood, Florida! Home of one of America’s best beach boardwalks, Hollywood has more than 7 miles of beach and some serious locations for awesome food. Here’s a peek at some of the local favorites. Best of all, they're all within a reasonable summer's budget!
Le Tub- Walk, drive, or dock your boat on the bay and enjoy what GQ Magazine has voted as the best hamburger, for only $11.00. But be prepared to wait more than usual for your patty, remember greatness takes time and a 13 oz. Sirloinburger cooked to order is worth the wait. Or try their claim to fame, since they opened 32 years ago, their Chili with ground sirloin, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and seasoning for $4.00 a cup. Whatever you choose, rest a sure you just had yourself the best belly-busting meal for a great price, after a long day of gut sucking at the beach. 1100 N. Ocean Drive, FL (954)921-9425
