Michael Mina's Stripsteak Opens on Thursday
Wagyu duo at Stripsteak
Michael Mina's third Miami-area restaurant is slated to open this Thursday, November 13, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort.
Stripsteak takes over the 12,000-square-foot space formerly held by Gotham Steak. The two-story, 350-seat restaurant will offer both indoor and outdoor dining, as well as several cocktail bars. The space is designed to be "sexy, fun, and engaging."
The opening of Stripsteak will mark the second Fontainebleau Miami Beach restaurant for the chef, who opened Michael Mina 74 in December 2013. The chef also operates Bourbon Steak at the Turnberry Isle in Aventura.
The menu, created by Mina and executed by Stripsteak's chef de cuisine Derrick Roberts, will serve steaks, as evidenced by the restaurant's name, but will also offer a selection of meats and seafood prepared on a wood-burning grill. As befits a tony resort steakhouse, there are also all manner of raw bar items.
What differentiates Stripsteak from Mina's other Fontainebleau location? The chef says that his newest venture is a "take on a contemporary steakhouse" with a "more traditional dining stle than Michael Mina 74." Stripsteak has a sister restaurant at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. It's bone-in top loin, according to Esquire, gets its incredible taste and texture from being poached in clarified butter (here's the recipe).
Though prices aren't available for the Miami Beach location, steaks in Las Vegas range from $42 for a 10-ounce prime flat iron steak to $110 for a 30-ounce dry-aged porterhouse (presumably shared by two).
Stripsteak will be open Sunday - Thursday from 6 to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. to midnight. The lounge stays open one hour later and a DJ will play tracks Thursday - Saturday.
