Café Emunah is the only kosher restaurant in Fort Lauderdale and is mere steps from the Beach! It prides itself on offering an experience for your senses and an oasis for your mind, body and soul - a physical journey into your spiritual self, with the help of head Chef Said Nemi. Upon entering, you feel enveloped by the warm and serene environment. The decor is upscale but sparse and features glass tables and blue fabric on the couches. Materials used in the restaurant are consistent with the eco-conscious elements of mysticism: napkins from recycled paper and pale blonde wood chairs that are ergonomic and simple in design, yet comfortable. The restaurant is also a tea bar and lounge with comfortable couches and a small library of books about Jewish Mysticism. Its geographically central location makes it an ideal meeting spot for people in Miami to meet up with friends from Boca and the surrounding areas in between, such as Hollywood and Delray. It also makes for a convenient meal on the way to and from the airport, as it is only a 15-minute drive from the Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Café Emunah is the perfect ending to a day on the beach or a yummy preface to a romantic evening stroll.
Cafe Emunah receives deliveries of fresh fish daily, and they are known for their fish dishes including sushi, as well as finely crafted pizzas, pastas and salads. You’ll delight in their appetizers such as Emunah Tartar with layers of spicy tuna, avocado, flying fish roe and garnished with sweet shitake mushrooms. Recommended dishes also include the Tiberius Salmon, which is pan seared and sautéed with garlic, white wine and lemon butter sauce served with couscous and mushrooms. Guests rave about the Most Righteous Roll, a unique square roll with spicy tuna, masago, avocado, scallions, sesame seeds and fresh mango dots. For dessert, try one of the Café’s home-made ice creams.

Wow. What an amazing menu. We generally don't like dairy restaurants, because frankly, there aren't many ways to cook fish where you actually change the taste of the plain fish. This restaurant had an interesting menu and a offbeat reputation (think Tzfas and kabbala and the 60's, perhaps a bit of Lubovitch thrown in and you've got the idea), so we thought we'd give it a try for fun. Service was friendly - even the manager inquired if there was anything we needed. The food came fast, even though we did not pick the recommended specials. The bread and hummus are made in house. The bread has an unusual and tasty flavor that I could not pin down, but had us requesting seconds. The hummus was very garlicky and delicious. The extensive tea menu (yes Virginia, a tea menu) was offbeat and interesting, but we weren't too crazy about the one we chose which had a strong aftertaste. It was entertaining however, as it is served in an antique little tea brewing pot with a timer to tell you when it is properly steeped and not a moment longer. The waitress offered us a soup sampler with three different soups - two of which were cream soups and were amazing. The imitation crabcakes with mustard were very good. We had a grilled Mahi Mahi in wine sauce, with jasmine rice that was crispy like Syrian Tahdig from Colbeh (my fave), and a weird but very delicious sauce on the side for the veggies. We also had a roasted halibut, with little potatoes, in a sauce that was so delicious it was hard to share. But all that PALES in comparison to the most amazing dessert EVER. A simply named banana split, with caramelized baby bananas, homemade ice cream (and a milchig restaurant can really do that right), a hot home made brownie base that melts in your mouth, a cone of strawberries and blueberries perched on top and chocolate syrup on the whole thing, and drizzlings of some tart syrup on the plate to swoosh the ice cream through. WARNING: Order only one and share! It is HUGE! And very delicious! Bill was a bit higher than a regualr milchig restaurant, but worth every penny. They got rave reviews on Zagat as well, and they deserve it. Keep up the great work!

I usually don't like to publicize all the recommendations I give but after such a glowing review I have to say, I feel a little like a shadchan. YYB, I'm glad you had a great time. I hope you told them how you heard about them

I wanted to speak with the manager to let her know, but she left before I was done. Thanks for the great referral!
