Instead of a sign or an awning, the entrance to TRP Taste in Fort Lauderdale will soon feature a refurbished movie marquee hanging overhead.
“It will say, ‘Now tasting’ and list upcoming events with dates,” says Tim Petrillo of the Restaurant People, the Fort Lauderdale culinary outfit that recently launched the concept. “It’s kind of cool.”
When The Restaurant People began in the mid-’90s with a single Himmarshee spot, the Fort Lauderdale restaurant scene looked quite different than it does today. More than two decades later, the city’s culinary tastes have grown – and so has TRP.
