In honor of our nation's birthday, the folks at STK at The Perry (formerly known as The Gansevoort) have thought of a perfect way to celebrate: a Stars & Strips holiday special. One of Miami Beach's best steakhouses is offering a 10-oz. New York strip sirloin for just $25.
"Its one of our most popular dishes," said marketing coordinator Giselle Delapuente. "So we wanted to give back to our loyal customers who have kept us thriving for so long."
Chef Aaron Taylor keeps his steaks at around 34 degrees until they are spiced with salt and pepper. The steak is then charbroiled over charcoal, allowing it to become slightly charred in texture, then topped with a butter emulsion.
"The butter emulsion gives it a very rich flavor and texture," said Taylor, , who helped open Lincoln Road favorite Meat Market before coming to STK in November 2011.
Steaks go from $45 for the NY strip all the way to $95 for the 34-oz. porterhouse (pictured) that can feed up to three people.To compliment the meal, pastry chef Christie Galnares put together a summer selection of sorbets. The sorbet trio ($12) combines three different varying kinds, usually a fresh take on a flavor combinations flavor like fresh lychee coconut or watermelon mint.
"My favorite is the raspberry mango," said Delapuente. "They also have a pink lemonade sorbet, which is very unique."
The most unique thing about STK is its nightclub feel. Though it has the fixings of a typical restaurant with its widespread dinning room spread on two floors, patrons line the bar and the walkways similar to a nightclub.
"The nightclub feel and attitude of the restaurant is part of what drew to work here," Taylor said about the unique vibe. "Being in that kind of atmosphere is what I enjoy the most about working here."
Chef Taylor and his staff are cooking up steaks to order up until 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday and holiday nights like Fourth of July Wednesday. Visit the STK Miami site for more information.
