J. Mark's Restaurant recently introduced several new "Bistro items" to their menu as well as expanding the wine list with 22 new savory wines.

If you haven't had their crab cakes before, they are an absolute must! Made with Jumbo Lump Blue Crab, they used to be an exclusive feature only, but they are now a permanent addition to the menu. Try one for an appetizer or two for an entrée that comes with coleslaw and a sideboard item. You can also add one to your fresh catch entrée or steak for just $6.99!

Speaking of steak, J. Mark's offers only Certified Angus Beef, which is the top 8%, ensuring that all steaks are tender and juicy. If you have the appetite, their "Not-for-the-Shy" Rib-Eye will hit the spot! It's a 20-ounce cut of evenly marbled Rib-Eye that's full of amazing flavor. There is a new twist to the Hickory Ribs too! You can now order them as "Deluxe" loaded with delicious crispy pearl onions, chopped green onions and peanuts. The Ribs are also available as a Half Rack all day.

For something on the lighter side, J. Mark's new Spinach Salad is a winner! Its fresh spinach tossed in their house-made Light Lime Vinaigrette and topped with hardboiled eggs, pieces of crisp bacon, sliced strawberries, red onions and goat cheese, and served with Hot Bacon dressing on the side. The taste is incredible and hands down, beats the competition.

If you already love J. Mark's Burgers, you're sure to add this to your list too: the Havarti Cajun Burger. A half pound of hand-pattied ground beef that gets a hearty dose of Cajun seasoning while it's grilled on an open flame. Then it's topped with two slices of mild Havarti cheese and crinkle-cut pickles and served with French Fries.

The Buffalo Chicken Sliders are also a new favorite. Three bite-size (ok, a few bites) sandwiches of lightly-breaded chicken breast tossed in their house-made Buffalo sauce, Blue Cheese dressing and red onions. They go perfectly with a Yuengling draft beer which is only $2 during Happy Hour!

Last, but certainly not least, is the Footlong Hot Dog. An eight ounce, 100% Certified Angus Beef grilled Hot Dog offered three different ways: Plain with just ketchup and yellow mustard, Tropical with Teriyaki sauce, mango salsa and Mandarin oranges, or the J. Dog option with sweet gherkin relish, sliced banana peppers, and fresh tomatoes. I can confidently say this is the best Hot Dog you'll ever have!

J. Mark's wine list includes 60 labels to please the most sophisticated sommelier to the humble beginner with names such as Estancia Pinot Grigio, Concannon Chardonnay, Van Duzer Pinot Noir, Blackstone Merlot, Simi Cabernet, and Drops of Jupiter Petit Syrah, just to name a few...

So it is J. Mark's Restaurant for Lunch or Dinner! J. Mark's also serves fantastic Mid-day and Late Night Menus! Happy Hour is offered twice a day... every day! Taste the difference at one of the two remarkable J. Mark's locations: 1245 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, FL 954-390-0770; or 1490 N.E. 23rd Street (Copans Road), Pompano Beach, FL 954-782-7000.
