La Brochette Bistro Restaurant Review

: At this old-fashioned-looking but romantic little place, hidden away in a Cooper City strip mall, chef Aboud Kobaitri combines strong influences from restaurant jobs in France with Norwegian culinary school training, and touches from his birth land (Lebanon). The brochettes in the eatery's name are actually in short supply on the menu (on one night, one semi-spicy harissa-glazed chicken-onion skewer), but there is an interesting mix of familiar bistro classics (steak frites, filet mignon au poivre, mustard-crusted rack of lamb, French onion soup) and oddities like a sort of New Continental conch schnitzel (a whole pounded-tender breaded filet, with caper lime sauce). Fresh seafood's the main specialty here, with all manner of local and imported fish dominating both the regular menu and the generally voluminous nightly-changing specials list. This isn't one of those purist "truly fresh fish need no saucing" sorts of joints; dishes often come with several sauces or dips, in fact. But they're skillfully-crafted, demonstrating considerable classic French technique, and light enough (at least in the case of seafood, if not always with meats) to enhance rather than obliterate natural flavors.
