SoFi, the neighborhood just south of Fifth Street in Miami Beach, offers a bastion of internationally-acclaimed luxury eateries. The Dining Room, Red, The Steakhouse, Joe’s Stone Crab and Prime 112, to name a few. But the addition of Kane Steakhouse, Miami’s newest steak haven, has carved a niche of unrivaled dishes.Since opening this past June on the corner of Washington Avenue and Fifth Street, Kane Steakhouse rapidly has caught the attention of both Miami food aficionados and frequent celebrity visitors, like Miami Heat all-star Chris Bosh and LIV regular, Afrojack.The restaurant is hidden behind a wall lined by tall green bushes. It hosts an atmosphere of modern simplicity matched with classic glamour.Inside, you’ll find Murano glass chandeliers, eel-skin booths and a beautiful white onyx bar – a scene that will only half-prepare you for the delectable entrees you’re about to order. Impressively, you’ll also notice an affable staff dressed in either white or black tuxedos
For an ultimate sense of comfort, the venue plays Billboard Top 40 hits like Katy Perry’s “Firework” or Chris Brown’s “Yeah 3x.” At first the background music seems inconsistent with the elegant decor, but ultimately provides a sense of ease and relaxation.
Though the restaurant isn’t shy with pricing (steaks range from $37-$86), everything from the Colorado rack of lamb to the Maine lobster is cooked masterfully and absolutely worth the cost.
To experience a full palate-explosion, start off with the “Kane-style” caesar salad, which is infused with basil and is paired with an interestingly-shaped crouton. Dive right into the salt-and-pepper-seasoned fourteen-ounce New York Strip steak, which pairs nicely with a vodka tonic and the jalapeno-corn pudding, a mixture of corn and spices that takes traditional American flavors to a new level. To top it all off, try the pineapple upside-down cake, with bread and fresh slices of pineapple layered over a melting scoop of vanilla ice cream.
A major part of Kane Steakhouse’s success is the result of extensive collaboration between Executive Chef Daniel Ganem, famed restaurateur Mathew Glazier, and the team of Miami nightlife curators responsible for the success of Mansion, SET and Louis Bar-Lounge. Kane Steakhouse doesn’t just hit the mark visually, but tailors the entire experience to a contemporary crowd looking to hop from an incomparable dinner to a salacious night-on-the-town.
