Steakhouses: Take a luxury hotel known for its Asian glam (The Setai), a French executive chef (Executive Chef Mathias Gervais), and the best meat purveyors of the country (lauded Italian-American butcher family Pat LaFrieda & Son), and you have The Setai Grill. The treats begin when you're seated with a glass of rose Champagne, a loaf of brioche and a plate of prosciutto di San Daniele. They continue when you order items like the langoustine encased in papillote to navarin (braised lamb shouder en cocotte) with tournee potatoes and zucchini, and the 30-day prime aged strip sirloin carved table-side. The Grill's burnished wood floors and inlaid tables make it seem like a posh, romantic club. Indeed this is prime steak-slicing, date-night dining, with a terrific wine list, a dessert cart and the most divine cappuccino to finish things right.
French: Take a luxury hotel known for its Asian glam (The Setai); a French executive chef (Executive Chef Mathias Gervais, along with Chef de Cuisine Thomas Griese); a lauded Italian-American butcher family (Pat LaFrieda & Son) and Latino and Russian purveyors (Marky's International Food Emporium, Cinco Jotas, Fernando Pensato), and you have The Setai Grill, open since December 2012. The treats begin when you're seated with a glass of rose Champagne, a loaf of brioche and a plate of prosciutto di San Daniele. They continue when you order items like langoustine encased in papillote to a 30-day prime aged strip sirloin carved table-side by eminently efficient Restaurant Manager Hakan Balkuvvar. The Grill is set off the lobby and resembles a posh, romantic club. Indeed this is prime steak-slicing, date-night dining, with a terrific wine list, a dessert cart and the most perfect cappuccino on the beach to finish things off right.
Local Expert Priscilla Blossom Says:
Steakhouses: "With Pat LaFrieda prime meats, Marky's caviar and a host of other delicacies, dining at The Setai Grill is a posh, romantic experience topped only by doing the same across the lobby, in The Restaurant at the Setai."
French: "Retreat to the Setai on a Sunday morning and indulge all the senses with their popular Jazz Brunch."
Best for Steakhouses Because: Their 30-day dry aged porterhouse, 60-day dry aged bone-in tomahawk steak, and a selection of sauces (truffle ponzu, anyone?) will have you salivating.
Best for French Because: Phenomenal French-influenced cuisine by Chef Gervais combined with the restaurant's opulence (inside and out) will make you fall in love with the Setai.
