Graziano’s has long been recognized locally as the “gold standard” for Argentine steak and cuisine. With several locations in Miami including Bird Road, Brickell, Coral Gables, and Hialeah, this is the steakhouse that consistently delivers top-notch quality food and has been a staple in our community for quite some time. I hadn’t visited in a while so when we got an invite to check our their Coral Gables location (394 Giralda Ave, Coral Gables), Mitch and I jumped at the opportunity to revel in a good steak meal.

Since opening its doors in 2008, Meat Market (915 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach) has managed to establish itself as one of the few quality dining options on the deteriorating Lincoln Road food scene. With rave reviews and numerous awards, the flagship location (there are now two more Meat Markets in Palm Beach and Puerto Rico) has quietly made a name for itself with a winning formula of taking the staples of a classic steakhouse and putting an artful, contemporary spin on them, attracting a stylish fan base looking for more than just red meat.

Fogo de Chão (836 1st St, Miami Beach) is a Brazilian restaurant that follows the traditional concept of servers bringing skewers of meat to your table until you are ready to explode (euphemistically speaking, of course). The idea is that you have a card with two sides, and you flip the card to a specific side depending on whether you want the servers to offer you more meat or not. This style of restaurant is very popular in Brazil and is known as gaucherras; they offer a buffet-esque experience where you pay one price and eat as much as you want.
Foodie friends, can you believe we’re already 25% in to 2017??? The first few months of the year are always a whirlwind around here with food festivals and restaurant openings, and a ton of special foodie events. While not letting up completely, things are starting to slow down a little bit as we start to approach the summer months and we’re happy to bet getting a little bit of a reprieve. That said, there’s still plenty to see and do, eat and drink this month. Below is our regular round-up of the best of the Miami food scene this month. Enjoy!
