Here’s a worthy entry from Michelin-starred chef Michael Mina, who’s never there but secured a team who can hold their own. It’s about a half-hour north of Downtown, but it’s hard to argue that it’s not worth the trip. The bold and glossy atmosphere makes you feel a bit like an extra in Mad Men. While Mina’s cooking techniques bring you back to the 21st century. Ease into the meal with something raw, like the majestic seafood tower or tuna tartare. Then move on to the main event: all-natural steaks poached in herb-infused butter and finished on a wood-burning oven. And the trio of french fries cooked in duck fat—which are served in lieu of a bread basket and available in unlimited quantities. Honestly, we can’t think of anything tastier.
We tend to think about the best steakhouses in Miami whenever a special occasion rolls around. Birthdays, graduation, anniversaries—they call for something a bit more extravagant than the best tacos in Miami. There’s something about the steakhouse that just makes us feel all tingly with anticipation. It’s an American tradition that plenty of places do just superb in the Magic City. Of course, this being Miami, our steakhouses tend to have a flare to them. Some are flashy and modern, housed in the best hotels in Miami. Others are old school and have been around for decades. But, they all have one thing in common: they’re delicious.
