    The best Friday Happy Hour on Miami Beach. $50 bottles of Veuve and fabulous people. Oh ...and the food is awesome. THE BEST filet on Miami Beach. Great service. Still a Miami Beach must.

    A wine cellar that could make even beer lovers giddy and That (capital T) legendary Super Steak dish. A gorgeous bar beckons boozehounds with artisanal cocktails & prime views of who's in the house. Read more

    Shareef made Daddy Al Malnik proud with this Miami Beach culinary gem. Lobster PB & J is a hands down must, and any of their succulent steaks prove why this place is a world-class, celeb favorite.

    Almost like a fantasy, The Forge is a mix of striking designs, touches of Starck, and an irresistible menu. Duck fries, lobster PB&J, and those sweet chili haricot vert are a must! #CPL8

    Shareef is the ultimate host. Truly a unique experience and with its new look, The Forge demonstrates that fine dining can still be fun. Don't miss the peanut butter and jelly lobster sandwiches.

    Try the Lobster PB & J: toasted brioche, chopped fresh peanuts, onionmarmalade, diced chilled lobster. It sounds bizarre (& it is), but you can talk about it to any girl willing to listen all night. Read more

    Loved it. Fridays is Happy Hour with $50 bottles of Veuve Clicquot. Dean the Sommelier gave us a tour of the cellar "Amazing". You have to come here and experience the ambiance.

    This newly renovated Miami legend is not ideal for a quiet tête-à-tête with a loved one. But for livelier occasions, it can't be beat, with atmosphere, decor, and food that are all a bit over the top. Read more

    The restaurant's Enomatic wine dispenser, which pours 1-, 3- and 5-oz samples of 80 wines, makes this a popular watering hole among the city's oenophiles. Cozy up to the bar and sip while you snack.

    The Forge for decades has had one of the most impressive wine cellars in town. However, with the relaunch of the "new" Forge a few months ago, enophiles on a budget have a reason to celebrate. Read more

    Extensive wine list with an incredible amount of selections by the glass. Steaks were solid choice. Hash brown potatoes were terrific. Not you typical steakhouse setting.

    The spice rubbed duck and the super steak (named best in America in (2011) was amazing! Green beans as the side went prefect with the dishes

    Try to sit @ the Library or @ the private Cellar if you are a party of 10 to 22. Get left back room with stain-glasses than the main room where people go more to be seen than for the food

    This original Miami culinary gem is back after a remodel in 2009. The food will blow your mind. It's where the local and national celebrities like to go for great food and impeccable service.

    The 42-year-old restaurant is back in business, if not business as usual. New chef LoSasso's menu includes lobster PB&J sandwiches, a towering “Bermuda Triangle” appetizer & a formidable wine list. Read more

    Over-the-top decor in a renovated historic building. Very LOUD, interrupted by a good but even LOUDER singer. The food is fine but $$$$ and the wine markup is also high. Good for high-rollers.

    Lobster, peanut and butter & jelly sandwich? "Coffee and Eggs"? "Super Steak"? You get all that and more at The Forge. Their extensive wine list offers an array flavors to compliment the unique food.

    If you think the kiucumber signature cocktail might be a little to tart for you, ask them to sweeten it up, delish

    A timeless 1920s steak joint that used to be a favorite of Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Richard Nixon, and Elizabeth Taylor. The ghost of Al Capone apparently vacations in the wine cellar, however.
