While it’s always smart to be leery of any South Florida restaurant that touts its New York pedigree, this Korean steakhouse is the real deal. Combining the top collection of meats in the city with a heavy dose of pink neon “scene,” Cote strikes the balance between cool and quality like nowhere else. Servers bring out a platter of beautiful meats and cook it on a tabletop grill, with a selection of veggie-centric Korean banchan surrounding. It’s a very different kind of steakhouse experience that doesn’t leave you weighed down. What’s better, you can sample it without breaking the bank, as Cote’s signature Butcher’s Feast is a quite-reasonable $68 per person.
When was the last time you had Thanksgiving dinner at a Michelin starred restaurant? Never, you say? Well, 2022 is your year as the Korean steakhouse is offering a spectacular—albeit beefy—Thanksgiving meal of American Wagyu and USDA Prime Steaks. The usual Korean sides get a T-Day twist, as your table-grilled meats will be accompanied by savory egg soufflé, sticky rice stuffing, and turkey mandoo dumplings.
Cost: $125 per person.
Steakhouses are always a surefire hit for a big group dinner, but Michelin-starred Cote combines sexy neon fixtures and low lights with premium cuts of steak for a truly Miami experience. What’s more, most of Cote’s offerings are served tasting menu style, where your waiter arrives with small pieces of Wagyu, prime ribeye, and other top meats and grills them in front of you. Each person at the table gets their own few bites, meaning everyone is pretty much trying the same stuff. What’s more, the signature Butcher's Feast is a reasonable $65 per person, and includes an impressive array of Korean sides.
This Korean heavy-hitter’s New York outpost garnered itself a Michelin star just before the pandemic, and even if you don’t take your restaurant gospel from a tire maker, you’re sure to appreciate Cote. Servers tote finely marbled cuts of everything from Prime Ribeye to A5 Japanese Wagyu to your table, grill it right in front of you, and pair it with a collection of pickled veggies and other Asian-inflected sides. To experience it best, opt for the Butcher’s Feast, a platter spanning four different meats plus generous sides for a very reasonable $58. It’ll leave you full, but in a Keto kind of way.
