Bourbon Steak has garnered plenty of press and attention for its gourmet burger menu, but the restaurant is more deserving of accolades for its commitment in theory and practice to fresh, organic, locally sourced ingredients. Chef Gabriel Fenton is a relatively young dude and he hasn't been in Miami long, but he carries the work ethic that Michael Mina saw fit for opening his brand's outposts in Los Angeles and Mexico City before settling him permanently in Miami.

Don't get me wrong, they do make a tasty burger, but take a look at these exclusive kitchen pictures and video to see what else they're up to in Aventura.
