Bet on This Being a Winner
Steve Martorano, of the famous Café Martorano on Oakland Park Boulevard, brings his brash Italian fare to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this February with the opening of Martorano's -- a 7,400-square-foot restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating for approximately 300. Look for Steve's famous meatballs, eggplant stack, and shrimp scampi, as well as high-def screens and loud music. A Philly cheese steak sandwich is on the after-hours menu.
