It’s not just retirees who earn Miami the dubious nickname of New York City’s sixth borough—the city’s restaurants have a lot to do with it, too. Popular Manhattan steakhouse Quality Meats is one of many transplants that’s been a hit with locals, in part for its prime cuts of beef supplied by well-known butcher Pat LaFrieda, which are even better after a stint in the restaurant’s 1,200-degree infrared broiler. Dining in the eatery’s Art Deco digs is very much an old-school steakhouse experience—expect dry-aged steaks, starchy sides, shrimp cocktail and Caesar salad. However, there are also some standout contemporary favorites, like the house-cured bacon served with chunky peanut butter and an apple-jalapeno jelly, veal shank for two and a burnt marshmallow ice cream dessert.
