If you don’t find the Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s lobby and staggering size impressive enough, we encourage you to explore the hallways of the palatial hotel and enter the stylish Gotham Steak House. Known for its savory American steaks, the restaurant also boasts an impressive decorative landscape, which aims to captivate all of your senses.
Beautiful is simply the best way to describe the lush décor which is aligned with mahoghany, hanging installations, and a signature two-story glass encased wine tower. The restaurant also features an open exhibition kitchen which allows its visitors to see first-hand the artistry and complexity involved in their meal preparation.
We recommend opting for the first level which allows you to view the kitchen exhibition—not to mention that the space has a slightly more indulgent and intimate feeling in our opinion. Of course, being Miami you could even opt for the al-fresco dining option which is also located on the first level, allowing you to savor the amazing Miami weather.
So now you’ve sat down and you’re ready for to order your meal. What’s next? You might want to start by browsing the wine menu, which boasts a brimming 500+ bottle list. The extensive list brings you flavors from across the world so no matter what your grape or regional preference may be, their selection is sure to satisfy.
Moving past simple American cuisine, Gotham infuses Italian, French and Asian inspiration into all of its dishes. House Chef Alfred Portale, owner of the famed Gotham Bar and Grill in New York, is famous for his attention to color and texture, so look for food that is vibrant and pleasing to the eye.
We were recently invited to dine at Gotham Steak by the wonderful sales staff of the Fountainbleau. Our picks include:
Enjoy the occasional cigar and dessert drink? Gotham offers an extensive list of cigars from mild to full flavored smokes as well as a full list of cognacs, Armagnacs, scotches, tequilas, and tasting flights and pairings.
