The Miami Beach outpost of Chef Michael Mina’s extremely successful, award-winning Las Vegas restaurant, StripSteak – an innovative and contemporary steakhouse concept – is now open.
StripSteak offers a dynamic dining and bar scene perfectly in sync with Fontainebleau’s reputation as the preeminent destination for sophisticated cuisine and contemporary cocktails. The two-story, indoor-outdoor venue, is sexy, fun, elegant and engaging – a perfect complement to the hotel’s stellar collection of signature restaurants, which includes Scarpetta, Hakkasan and Pizza & Burger.
Located off the historic chateau lobby in the heart of the hotel, StripSteak is very much a steakhouse for today’s adventurous diner – offering a la carte cuts of steak (many of them from the hotel’s on-site aging room and butcher shop) as well as signature specials that go far beyond traditional steakhouse fare. Executed by Executive Chef Jun Lee, the vast menu runs the gamut, overflowing with options. No steakhouse experience would be complete without a killer raw bar; StripSteak’s includes selections sourced locally through BleauFish – the hotels innovative ocean-to-table live catch program.
From the restaurant’s impressive open kitchen, located on the lower level, will come a parade of delectable entrées as well as a bounty of meats and fish from the wood-burning grill.
