Acclaimed Fort Lauderdale Restaurant Celebrates Anniversary with the Launch of New Farmer’s Market
Anyone who has visited Burlock Coast, the celebrated Fort Lauderdale restaurant located oceanfront at The Ritz Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, knows that a dedication to smart sourcing is a key component to its delicious food and drink offerings. A farm- and hook-to-table ethos touches everything, from Chef Gavin Pera’s cuisine to the amazing products sold in its marketplace. To commemorate its one year anniversary, the restaurant is taking its dedication to freshness one step further with the launch of its own Farmer’s Market. “Whether they’re raising produce or pigs, cows or corn, farmers are a chef’s secret weapon,” says Pera. “Using the best and freshest fruits, vegetables, and proteins available is part of Burlock’s DNA and a big part of our success. The locals have embraced the restaurant as their own and we couldn’t be prouder. The launch of the Farmer’s Market is a thank you to them and a natural extension of what Burlock is all about.”
Located inside the restaurant and launching on Saturday, November 12 at 9 AM, the market will offer a bevy of amazing, artisanal products and vendors. Highlights will include 3 Sisters Farm; Tamer Harpke Farm; Hammock Hallow; Keez Beez; Bootlager Beer; Fwaygo Rum; The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Fort Lauderdale; Memories; Island Company and more. Burlock Coast will also have their own signature booth, selling savory and sweet items. DJ Carsonicboom will be on-hand spinning from 11 AM to 3 PM, when the market will close. There will be raffles prizes galore for market-goers, as well.
The festivities and music will continue with an open-to-the-public Anniversary Happy Hour at 5 PM. Burlock’s Happy Hour, classically only Monday through Friday, is a buzzy affair in Fort Lauderdale so a Saturday edition, complete with $1 oysters, is sure to pack the house. Beyond the oyster special, Happy Hour includes $6 specialty cocktails, house white or red wine and BC Bootlager, Burlock’s proprietary brew. Also, $6 bar bites, from spicy avocado tomatillo dip to rock shrimp fry, among others.
For those that can’t get enough of the Farmer’s Market, it will return the second Saturday of every month.
