Sexy Steakhouses on South Beach
There are some really sexy steakhouses on South Beach. If you’re a visitor or a local and you’re a carnivore like me, here are 3 options on South Beach that you will love. What makes a steakhouse sexy? Well that’s easy. A sexy steakhouse has first and foremost great food, followed by excellent service and a sexy vibe. The lighting is great, the music isn’t blasting, the decor is special and you feel as if the whole night is different. You want to ditch the flip flops and beach attire and make some effort to enjoy a great meal with great company. Here are my picks of sexy steakhouses on South Beach. Go get your meat.
Red The Steakhouse is Red Hot Sexy!
Executive Chef / Proprietor Peter Vauthy packs passion into everything he serves. He’s picky and prides himself on using the best ingredients, presented in a simple, beautiful way. He’s incredibly creative and since RED The Steakhouse is his show, he can add different culinary creations to his menu. Most recently he posted on his Facebook that he was making his upscale version of PopTarts for a special dessert. The menu offers many options so even if you are in a group with non meat eaters, everyone will be blown away at the taste of any dish they choose. The steak is perfection and he doesn’t overdo it with the spices and sauces. It’s there if you want it and the sides are divine. Lobster mac and cheese and the garlic shrimp is a must to accompany any steak.
What makes RED sexy is the decor. It’s dimly lit. There’s this huge wall full of wines, seating is a mix of cozy booths, round tables and even an intimate private room ideal for a bachelor party. The staff are great and you’ll really feel taken care of.
Smith & Wollensky is sexy? Really? YES!
Unlike the New York location, the South Beach Smith & Wollensky known to the locals as “Smiths” has outside dining and an outside bar area. It’s located on the water at South Pointe Park making for an outside dining experience that puts you right under the Miami moon. Inside there’s a bar area where locals meet up on Friday nights before making the rounds to other popular spots on SoBe.
When the weather is perfect (which in Miami is 85% of the year), people are outside mixing it up at the bar, people are walking by and the energy is great. I also find the food at this location far much better than at Smith and Wollensky in New York. The angry shrimp are a great sharing appetizer are and the steak along with good ole mashed potatoes rounds out a classic meal. The breeze off the water is divine and the area overall is perfect for an after dinner stroll. Kiss under the moonlight. Ahhh. Perfect sexy night.
Not every steakhouse experience has to begin at 9pm for it to be sexy. Happy hour Friday’s start as early as 5pm, packs a very sexy punch and Meat Market on Lincoln Road Mall is where to go. Sure you can dine there early or late but the happy hour here is fantastic and certainly sexy. The women in Miami are gorgeous and Lincoln Road is a people watching paradise. The Meat Market Happy Hour offers a great value and perfect, more casual option. I’ve eaten at Meat Market for their happy hour and it’s fantastic. If you want an earlier dinner after a long day of beaching and sightseeing, Meat Market is a great option. The oysters are amazing and the drinks are divine.
I LOVE BLT Steak mainly because the food is awesome and the atmosphere is something out of a movie. It’s located on Ocean Drive but more north and away from the lowbrow riff-raff common to Ocean Drive. I’ve eaten lunch outside and dinner inside. The decor is straight up 1940’s sexy old hollywood glamour. Casual attire is ok for outside dining before 8pm. When the sun goes down it’s time to dress up on South Beach. BLT Steak is sexy and sophisticated and the meal will be just as pleasing. The menu is simple and to the point ideal for people who get overwhelmed with too many decisions and a big menu. I’m a huge fan of their tuna tartare as an appetizer and for the main event of course it’s steak, oysters and jalapeno mashed potatoes. Perfection.
Those are the four sexy steakhouses I suggest visiting on South Beach. There are others. Miami, South Beach especially, has many steakhouses. Some are a total scene, crowded and loud. Stick to the recommendations given from a New York’er now living on South Beach who is more about the total product than a total scene. When it’s sexy steak time I don’t want blasting music and crowds hovering over me. Try any one of these suggestions and then let me know what you think. I truly wish you a deliciously sexy experience.
