Teal Bistro Americano

Bistro-style American dishes on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

What we had:

We did an appetizer night: pan-seared diver scallops with cauliflower purée, lump crab cake with southwest corn salad and tuna tartare with citrus cucumber and seaweed salad.

The scallop was perhaps the most beautifully-cooked piece of seafood I've ever had. Freaking amazing. I could have eaten a bowl of the velvety, buttery purée, too.

The crab cake was good quality--no real discernable filler--but was bland. The raw fresh corn salad was a real treat.

I could have done without the mayo drizzle on the tuna. Some more of the really light citrus from the salad would have gone nicely.

The tea was horrible.


The inside smelled funny, and sat maybe 20, so we ate outside, which was nice.


Not bad. Our server was obsessed with giving us bev naps.

Overall impressions:

Those scallops were worth going back for alone. Maybe we'll try entrees next time.
