Soren Bredahl, a Danish chef whose South Florida resume reaches back to the 1960s at restaurants including Soren’s Café, Prince Hamlet, Food Among the Flowers and Two Chefs (which continues under his former partner, Jan Jorgensen), has decided that retirement in the old country isn’t for him after all.

Bredahl has teamed with former sous chef Jorge Montes to revive Food Among the Flowers, a long-ago Design District destination, at 9427 Harding Ave., Surfside. They’re serving lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, with a $21 sunset menu available from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
