6 Degrees and Rising

A Beach novelty: Solid food at fair prices at a club/lounge

The hamburger, on the other hand, was strongly supported by a delicious thicket of crisp, truffle-oiled homemade French fries. The burger was topnotch, too, a hefty, hand-formed, honest patty of grilled ground sirloin, nicely charred on the exterior, juicy medium-rare within, and plopped in a soft bun with a thick disk of sweet white onion, tomato slice, and romaine lettuce leaf.

I imagined that the chocolate tower for two would arrive as some soaring architectural construct of cocoa components, but it was really more a mound of fudgelike brownie and disks of bitter and semisweet chocolate cakes bound with stiff chocolate mousse. Perhaps some at the table were disappointed with the less-than-spectacular presentation, but they surely weren't let down by the intense (but not intensely sweet) chocolate flavors, vanilla ice cream, and Baileys-boosted chocolate sauce. We also enjoyed the berry cobbler, a hot, baked casserole of sweetened strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries beneath a sugary battered crust -- they should consider removing some sugar from the filling, though, since the fruit and crust are sweet enough.

Waiter, I'll have some drag with my sirloin...

In some cities a handsome new restaurant offering good food and service at a fair price might be considered superfluous. In Miami Beach it's a novelty, and one to be relished by locals for all the right reasons.
