Fontainebleau Miami Beach has three signature restaurants—Gotham Steak, Hakkasan Miami Beach and Scarpetta. Gotham Steak is a restaurant and lounge run by James Beard award-winning chef Alfred Portale. Here you can dine on steaks and fresh seafood — think domestic Wagyu with roasted Vidalia onions, yuzu butter, veal reduction and greens, or pan-roasted Florida red snapper with fennel, Swiss chard and red bliss potatoes. Stop by Hakkasan for dinner or a dim sum lunch. This high-end Cantonese restaurant has a diverse menu of food, wines and sakes. It’s also located on the rooftop of the fourth floor, ideal for a date night. For fine Italian cuisine at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel, book a table at Scarpetta. Star chef Scott Conant helms the restaurant specializing in regional Italian cuisine. Be sure to try the chef’s signature entrée of spaghetti with tomato and basil — it sounds simple but it has won a legion of fans.
There are a few smaller, more casual options at the Forbes Travel Guide recommended hotel. Blade serves sushi, Fresh serves lunch bites, Solo is great for coffee and Vida is the hotel’s American brasserie. We also like La Côte for lively atmosphere, cocktails, tapas and fresh seafood, salads and desserts.
