How to remain one of the hotter restaurants in Miami for over 40 years?  We have no idea; if we did we’d be in the restaurant business.  But they must be doing something right at The Forge, because this place still packs ‘em in.  The menu is serious and the meat here is world-class.  Apparently there’s a world-renowned wine bar, but we tend to stick to the simpler selections from the full bar (there’s an on-staff mixologist who’s so important that his name appears on the menu; still some of us favor G&Ts).  The menu features enough sides and “snacks” to serve as a full dinner, but given the quality of the steak here, we don’t recommend it.

Venue Tip: 

Try the Lobster PB & J: toasted brioche, chopped fresh peanuts, onion marmalade, diced chilled lobster.  It sounds bizarre (and it is), but you can talk about it to any girl willing to listen for the rest of the night.

The Good: 
It’s the most decadent restaurant in town, so you’re in not only for a delicious meal, but for a memorable experience. There’s always the chance some celebs will roll in. And your party can joke about the outrageous menu for the rest of the weekend.
The Bad: 
This place is expensive. And we mean expensive even for a nice steak house. But hey, you only live once, right? And you will never, ever again be in a position to order a grilled shrimp waffle with caviar and basil butter sauce.
