We felt it, too.

That breeze just now, half a degree crisper than the previous one.

Which means: heavy-eating season is officially here.

To help you get reacquainted: East End Brasserie, a classical-leaning French bistro, now open in Fort Lauderdale Beach.

You’ll start with a quick jaunt to the Atlantic Resort & Spa. Inside: this place, which looks like a French ambassador’s waterside house in Côte d’Azur—soaring ceilings, red leather banquettes, black wood everywhere. Start out with cocktails at the red-rose-backed bar—cognac-based East End Ginger for your date, Bloody Bull for you (vodka and beef broth—yes, beef broth). Then steal away to a marble table for two, or to the ocean-view terrace.

The guy wearing the chef hat here is fresh from a French bistro in Manhattan, so expect the staples: an artisanal cheese cart, full raw bar and Provençal dishes. You can start off easy with a frisée salad with duck cracklings and poached pear, and then segue to entrées like Braised Rabbit au Vin (asparagus and butter crepes). And note: there’s a 20-seater oak communal table, long enough to need four French deconstructed chandeliers overhead.

And like that, your Thanksgiving plans are booked.
