SPONSORED POST: Eater Inside Miami Gotham Steak







We've already perused the interior of Scarpetta, the recreation of chef Scott Contant's Meatpacking District hit. Today our attention turns to another new restaurant at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach that's just opening in the remade 1600+ room resort: chef Alfred Portale's much-anticipated Gotham Steak.

FONTAINEBLEAU


A celebrity chef from an era long before there were celebrity chefs, Alfred Portale has been making magic at the legendary Gotham Bar and Grill in New York City since 1985. Now, finally—after years of resisting expansion—Portale is carrying his magic beyond the city, to a two-level incarnation at the Fontainebleau Resort in Miami dubbed Gotham Steak, opening today. Cuisine-wise, Portale has always plated a world-class steak at his Manhattan restaurant, so the move here to make meat the centerpiece makes a ton of sense. But expect not just steak but also fresh seafood, other specialty cuts of meat, and plenty of wine to keep the conversation flowing. On the design side, note the hand-blown glass chandelier (above), open kitchen, and glass-enclosed wine tower. Overall, we're thinking this was a move well worth waiting for.
