Indulge Your Inner Carnivore At Miami's 10 Best Steakhouses

Miami is a virtual paradise for carnivores. Steaks, ribs, burgers, sausages, pork'll find all your needs met in this meat-lovers mecca. Miami is especially proud of its variety, quantity, and quality of steakhouses. There are international chains specializing in steaks, like the South of Fifth's Smith and Wollensky, where filet mignon and English cut prime rib take center stage. 

Then there are the fine dining options that are completely unique to Miami's culinary scene, like the Setai Grill, where your 30-day ages prime aged strip sirloin can be served with a truffle ponzu, a classic bernaise, or other variety of mouth-watering sauces, while your meat is sliced for you table-side.

Thanks to Miami's Latin influence, you'll of course find a range of steakhouses and churrascarias from Argentinean and Nicaraguan restaurateurs. You'll also find yourself trying to decide between any of the many Brazilian-inspired rodizio-style steakhouses. That is, the amazing concept of all-you-can-eat meat carved right onto your plate by waiters whose job is to walk around the restaurant with gigantic slabs of flank steak, braised beef ribs, Brazilian picanha and more. Area Code 55 does this wonderfully on the local level while the well-known Texas de Brazil does this for guests the world over.
