For those looking for a local pizza place or pizza delivery, Fort Lauderdale has something special to offer in New River Grill & Pizza. Having started out as a fairly simple and non-descript pizza joint in 2001, New River has since grown into a full-fledged grill and restaurant, offering a variety of sumptuous dishes.
One thing that hasn’t changed though is the restaurant’s focus on keeping things simple. Never known for frills, New River has always maintained its friendly, eclectic approach to Italian-inspired cuisine. Even with its decidedly American menu items, New River manages to inject just enough of an Italian influence to make the results novel, exciting, and infinitely palatable. Utilizing only the freshest and tastiest ingredients, New River Grill & Pizza serves up a dining experience that few other restaurants can compare with.
Among the restaurant’s most popular items are the pizzas, fresh wraps and salads, subs, burgers, and home-style American dishes, all of which have been mainstays since the restaurant was founded, and all served up with the unique New River-style Italian twist. New River also serves an assortment of starters, odds and sides, fresh soups, small plates, flat breads, and tacos and quesadillas. Desserts and drinks are available for takeout and delivery, and diners even have the option to build their own unique mac and cheese creations.
In 2013, New River expanded its menu considerably to include more than two-dozen new signature selections. Although classic favorites such as the Boneless Chicken Wings, Meatball Parmigiana, and Lasagna remain in circulation, those looking for a new flavor could now enjoy the Shrimp Cake, Grilled Butcher Steak, and other fresh-off-the-grill items as well. Other additions to the menu were the turkey, cranberry, and brie paninis, gourmet pizzas topped with an assortment of exciting new ingredients such as fig, prosciutto, and blue cheese, and inventive new salads with simple but tasty flavor combinations such as arugula and parmesan.
The attention to detail and focus on flavorful and tasty ingredients has made New River Grill & Pizza one of the most sought after pizza restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. In 2013, the restaurant was adjudged the overall Best Restaurant in Open Table’s "Diner's Choice” awards, and was also named Broward's "Top Destination for a Memorable Dining Experience” in the same year.
Dining in is definitely one of the best ways to enjoy the full New River dining experience.
