STK Miami boasts the slogan, “Not Your Daddy’s Steakhouse,” but all we could say after our first time was “OMG!” (and we definitely did not think about our daddies during this meal). From LA to NY to Miami, STK is much more than a one night stand. Nestled into the sleakness that is Gansevoort South, STK Miami, the ultimate mix of Miami Beach style and the modern steakhouse, makes steak sexy.
Our evening started off with some solid foreplay when we signed on to OpenTable to make our STK reservation. STK is a 1,000-point table! Right next to Coco De Ville, STK greets you with two large wooden doors. Once you open the doors, you’re smacked in the face with bat-cave like darkness (think Bruce Wayne’s bedroom) and floating lights, which illuminate-enough this two-floor, sensual space. STK seduces you immediately with it’s lounge-like dining area surrounded by a DJ, a catwalk, and intimate dining tables. It didn’t hurt that our server was Tyson Beckford’s identical twin (if he had one). Tyson’s brother – we’ll call him Bryson - announced that an STK team would be at our service throughout the evening and brought us the most delectably addicting bread. O – M – G! The harem-like service following Bryson, and the bread, was definitely a turn-on, but nothing compared to the indulgence that took place during our meal.
To get the night going, we started off with the Pink Elephant Cocktail – Grey Goose Pear, strawberries, mint, lime and champagne – definitely not your daddy’s cocktail. The PEC hit the g-spot. Since STK is a steakhouse, we started with the Blue Iceberg salad – you can’t have steak without bacon and bleu cheese first, it’s a rule. Order the salad chopped like we did, but make sure to leave room for the Filet Mignon (splurge for the peppercorn crust). Did you think this was just a quickie? You’re not going anywhere without also ordering the Risotto of Lobster with sweet corn and black truffle. And no meal would be complete without one of STK’s infamous sides. Forget the calories (you’ll burn them off later, wink wink) and go for the Mac n’ Cheese. Dinner was an orgasmic experience that we thought could not be surpassed…until dessert.
STK topped off our meal with an after-sex cigarette, the Bag O’ Donuts. Just what it sounds like, but more. Sugar-dusted donut bites filled with molten, dulce de leche found their way into our mouths. Eat these little aphrodisiacs naked or dip them in chocolate or vanilla sauce to really push you over the edge. The guests next to our table probably thought we were reenacting When Harry Met Sally’s diner scene with all the “ohhhh’s” escaping from our table.
If you’re nervous about your “ohhhhh’s”, reserve one of STK’s private rooms that overlook the main dining room and the DJ lounge. You will feel like the ultimate sex symbol looking down on the crowd below while satisfying your every craving with STK’s naughty menu. House of Travel is already planning our next rendezvous with STK and trying to control our mid-Monday urges for filet and donuts. It may have been our first time at STK Miami, but you never forget your first time.
