Bourbon Steak Miami
You’ll find this massive, shiny steakhouse inside the Turnberry Resort in Aventura. The host stand is made entirely of wine corks, and you’ll have to pass by multiple wine walls on the way to your table. Needless to say, there’s lots of wine here—over 850 wine selections. But even if you don’t want to drink, the food lives up to its high price point. The meal starts with complimentary duck fat fries, but you're here for steak. They’re all prime cuts, plus there’s a Japanese wagyu, an Australian wagyu, and even a Colorado bison filet on the menu. We like the delmonico ribeye. The sear is excellent, and the temperature is spot on. It comes with whole roasted garlic but no sides, so get the creamed spinach or truffle mac and cheese. If corporate cards are present and per diems generous, get the $115 lobster pot pie that’s prepared tableside with large chunks of lobster and spoonfuls of brandied lobster cream.
