Prime One Twelve
Prime 112 is one of Miami Beach’s most popular hotspots, helped in no small part by its status as a celebrity hangout (Channing Tatum was spotted there recently). The Ocean Drive restaurant, run by chef Myles Chefetz, hails itself as the “first modern steakhouse in the United States,” and turned heads when it first opened in 2004 thanks to its self-described “high-energy, female-friendly” environment.
Located inside The Browns Hotel (built in 1915), Prime 112 is certainly sexy. The room is chic and bustling, and the décor is accentuated by white leather, black walls, exposed brick, and up-tempo music. As for the food, the emphasis has always been on high-quality ingredients. Steak options range from an eight-ounce filet mignon to a 48-ounce porterhouse, served with a vast selection of sauces and butters, and are dry-aged for up to a month. Sides include the classically decadent truffle mac and cheese, house-made tater tots, and other steakhouse classics, but you’ll have a great meal even if you’re not that into steak: there’s a wide selection of salads, seafood, and even Chefetz’s interpretation of chicken and waffles.
