The big review: Chef Allen's  by Victoria Pesce Elliott
The big review: Chef Allen’s Other than Joe's Stone Crab and perhaps The Forge, there isn't another top restaurant around that comes close to chef-owner Allen Susser's long-term success (22 years). A key to his staying power has been his willingness to change, perhaps most dramatically in the past two months with a new look and menu.

Chef Allen's Modern Seafood Bistro  by BeBe King
Chef Allen’s Modern Seafood Bistro Change is the watchword for 2008. Usually we embrace change, but not necessarily when it comes to one of our all-time favorite South Florida restaurants. So it was with some apprehension that we read that Allen Susser and his wife Judi had decided to give Chef Allen’s a new look and a new menu. We have dined there twice recently and let me reassure other devotées. The revisions to the menu, which Chef Allen says were “influenced by our family trips in search of the best seafood bistro food in Paris, Barcelona, San Francisco and New York“, continue to reflect the delicious creativity of one of our star chefs. And the new décor creates a more open and lighter space. These changes are very, very good!

Today, Susser's cooking is as good as it's ever been, which is to say exceptional in its inventiveness and execution. He has had his own restaurant since 1986, and from opening day to the present it has been the only place in Aventura for a great meal.

Chef Allen's, Aventura
Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel  by M.L. WARREN
It's hard to believe that the perennially youthful Allen Susser is about to celebrate the 15th anniversary of his eponymous restaurant. Since Chef Allen's opened in 1986, the group of young chefs known as the Mango Gang has had its ups and downs, but most of the times have been up. Susser has been the most stable of the lot, setting up shop in one location and maintaining a dogged devotion to it.
