Prime 112 restaurant Miami Beach - Top ten restaurants Miami

Prime 112 is a positively excellent steakhouse and it's just a shame you can't get in, at least not without a reservation as much as a month in advance. But once you are seated in this trendy restaurant in the area of South Beach, you're in for a treat! Go with the Sautéed Hudson Valley Folie Gras, Organic Field Greens, and 48 ounce Porterhouse for two, with six sauces, five butters, and eleven accessories to choose from. And while you're waiting for your meal, enjoy the enticing eye candy that frequents this hot new area of South Beach.

Part of the ever expanding culinary empire of Nemo, Big Pink, and Shoji Sushi, Prime 112 is the latest darling to join the exclusive group of restaurants in the hot South of Fifth area of South Beach. A sleek steakhouse ambience and bustling bar (complete with dried strips of bacon in lieu of nuts) plays second fiddle to the beef, which is arguably the best in the entire city. The 12-ounce filet mignon is seared to perfection and can be enhanced with optional dipping sauces (for a price) truffle, garlic herb, foie gras, and chipotle. The 22-ounce bone-in rib-eye is fabulous, as is the gigantic 48-ounce porterhouse. Prime 112 also features a Kobe beef burger, a $30 version of sheer ecstasy, although fries are extra at $8, as are all the side dishes (the broccoli rabe sautéed in garlic is outstanding as are the scalloped potatoes) -- typical in a steakhouse, but the prices here are hefty. A powerhouse crowd gathers here for lunch and dinner and reservations are more rare than the yellowfin tuna tartare appetizer, but should you be lucky enough to score such a, um, prime reservation, take it without hesitation.
