Red, The Steakhouse in Miami Beach

Situated in Miami Beach, this restaurant serves exquisite steaks and has an extensive wine list. They also have a new Bar Bites menu for the football season, which offers a variety of tapas-like items and interesting cocktails.

Red, The Steakhouse is no ordinary restaurant so when I was invited to go, I could not refuse.

Upon entering, the ambiance was warm and classy, a place suitable for a romantic dinner or a business meeting – it is a versatile venue appropriate for any occasion.

We sat at the bar and started with the House Made Pastrami. Decadent is the first word that comes to mind – melted Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing enveloped the pastrami like a veil, the brioche buns, the perfect vessel to carry this wicked combination of ingredients.

The Duck Confit Nachos came next. These were the most unusual nachos I have ever had – duck confit, goat cheese fondue, scallions and jalapeños made this dish quite surprising and delicious.

The Tuna Tacos were just so good! Sashimi tuna, avocado and wakame, all drizzled with a spicy aïoli. Need I say more?

The Chef surprised us with a Lobster Ceviche. The presentation was amazing – served with two whole lobster claws on top the actual ceviche and the lobster head as decoration. Needless to say, the ceviche did not stay too long on the plate; it quickly disappeared into our stomachs without leaving a trace on the dish.

The Bar Menu at Red does not stay static; it changes every so often in order to surprise the diners.

We were in a steakhouse so we had to have a steak, right? I ordered the 16oz Ribeye, medium rare. It was quite ambitious of me to order such a big piece of meat, so I just took a bite and the rest went home with me, it would be a perfect dinner or so I thought.

As soon as I got home, my daughter attacked the steak and left me with less than half. I had to get my fair share fast so I pounced on the ribeye and it was very delicious indeed. By the time Isabelle came for more, it was all gone.

Chef Peter Vauthy hails from New York and developed a keen sense of culinary artistry early in life. He learned to cook from his Grandmother and up to this day, her teachings are still a source of inspiration.

A visit to Red is a must if you are an insatiable carnivore but come with a stuffed wallet as the experience is going to cost you. The price is worth every precious ounce of beef though so I will be back as soon as I can. Hopefully sooner than later.
