1. Gotham Steak 4441 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140 (South Beach)

From the vaunted chef behind NYC's Gotham Bar & Grill, Gotham feels like a massive, two-story MiMo chandelier with an airy restaurant floating inside, where fish and foul are treated with innovative tropical and Asian flavors, and steak is treated...like steak.

2. Wolfgang's Steakhouse 315 S Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132 (Downtown)

Wolfgang Zweiner's does some serious on-site dry-aging to the steaks at his Miami location. And while the 40oz porterhouse (...to share or not to share?) may be the most popular on the menu, there're plenty other non-carnivorous menu options -- from fresh seafood to perfectly cooked potatoes to a raw bar as impressive as the meat choices -- to satisfy cravings of all savory kinds.

3. Red, The Steakhouse 119 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

Once voted Sexiest Steakhouse of the Year (by Playboy, no less) and beloved by A-listers, Red delivers on all the swanky fronts. But we suggest you let the food -- from appetizers like seared foie gras and caviar with crème fraiche to the steak and seafood entrées -- do the talking. Throw in a fully-loaded wine list, and the fact that Red is one of the few places in the country to use Miyazaki beef (like Kobe but more marbled), and you've got a steak night to remember.

4. Prime 112 112 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (Miami Beach)

Located in the historic Browns Hotel, this chef-driven boutique steakhouse offers an innovative menu in a high-energy, sophisticated environment. There’s no better place in Miami to people-watch as celebrities chow down on dry-aged steaks and truffle-sprinkled sides, but you may have to do it for a while, as Prime 112 in SoFi promises notoriously long waits.

5. Bourbon Steak 19999 W Country Club Dr, Aventura, FL 33180 (North Miami)

Free duck fat fries, an extensive menu of wood-grilled steaks (including Japanese and American wagyu), and a famous dry-aged burger make this Aventura spot easily one of the best steakhouses in Greater Miami. The name isn't misleading, either: the bourbon selection here is among the best in the city -- six whole pages of them -- as well as a curated list of barrel-aged cocktails and a daily happy hour that makes it all accessible to everyone.
