Outside the tightly knit community, the City of Pembroke Pines houses
a splendid assortment of American, Cuban, Japanese, Italian and Colombian cuisine. Pembroke Lakes
Mall and The Shops at Pembroke Gardens together contain more than thirty restaurants.
The classically elegant Brimstone Woodfire Grill serves the juiciest steaks in town. From the certified Angus beef, to the unique takes on fresh seafood plates like the favorite cedar plank salmon, Brimstone’s premise is quite simple — prepare consistently good food that satisfies every taste. Try one of the fresh cocktails like the classic mojito or the margarita flight.
If you feel like experiencing a day in 1950s Havana, then check out Havana 1957 for dinner or lunch. Discover warm Cuban vintage memorabilia, classic Cuban music, a great ambiance and, most importantly, authentic Cuban food. Start with a Sopa de Pollo with a squeeze of fresh lime that lifts up your soul and taste buds. Make sure to drink at least one of the 120 mojitos available at the bar.
Don’t let the name fool you — Ra Sushi is less about raw food and more about cooked seafood, tempura, jalapeños and kiwi. For instance, the popular crazy monkey roll combines salmon, cream cheese and mango dressed with cashew nuts, avocado and red tempura bits. Find food from $3 to $7 and drinks from $2.25 to $7.25 during the daily happy hour specials.
Pines Boulevard carries an ample selection of nightlife options. Café Iguana Pines features great DJs, happy hour specials and a down-to-Earth atmosphere. This venue attracts one of the most ethnically mixed crowds in town as this establishment hosts Latin nights, Caribbean parties and even bar mitzvahs. The cover on Saturday nights is only $10. If you’re in the mood to dance salsa, then pass by La Klave Nightclub, a Colombian joint that serves amazing cocktails and plays catchy Spanish music.
