Brunch Fans- Market 17 (Ft. Lauderdale)

Brunch fans, start your Sunday with squash blossoms, rabbit loin and grilled Texas antelope. In the mood for eggs? How about the charcuterie omelette with house smoked bacon and housemade sausage or the seafood omelette featuring lobster, shrimp and snapper.

Market 17, the fairly new restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale doing the farm to table thing has started serving brunch on Sundays.  We recently had a fantastic Cobaya dinner there which really showcased Chef Ramos' skills in the kitchen.  The brunch menu sounds good so I would check it out.
p.s. They are serving all you can drink Bloody's!!!! Mimosas too.
