Mexican food lovers will soon have a new upscale eatery to get their nacho and taco fix in Fort Lauderdale. Stephen Starr, winner of a 2017 James Beard Award as the nation’s outstanding restaurateur, is bringing his El Vez restaurant to the W Fort Lauderdale hotel early next year. El Vez, scheduled to open in January 2018, will be Starr’s second restaurant at the W, located on the ground floor next to Steak 954. The Philadelphia-based Starr brought his signature showman’s style to Steak 954 when it made its South Florida debut eight years ago, with a restaurant that featured lime-green banquettes, glowing jellyfish aquariums and a $100 cheesesteak on the menu (since reduced to $65).
