Hello all,

I have been reading these boards often and really appreciate everyone's opinion. Some very good advice on here.

I am looking for a great restaurant to take my dad to for his birthday. Price does not matter but I really want a can't miss place.

I am staying at the Westin Diplomat but can travel to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami/Miami Beach easily. Obviously, the closer the better but again a cant miss place is my main priority.

I am interested particularly in steakhouses/american/french restaurants but will consider everything.

I have read a few good things on Gotham Steakhouse in Miami Beach?

Please help me!

    Bourbon Steak FTW.

      go to burbon steak instead it is much closer and probably better -- you should also check chowfather's recent posts about steakhouses in the area.

        Thank you for the reply!

        Out of Bourban steak and steak954 which one would be the best choice?

          Bourbon Steak. Proximity makes it a no-brainer.

            Definitely Bourbon Steak. Steak 954 is the place to go if they shut down the Dade-Broward border and you're stuck on the wrong side. Otherwise, as The Chowfather says, it's a "no-brainer."

            Bourbon Steak is heads above Steak 954 in quality. I live in Fort Lauderdale, but would always choose Bourbon Steak!
