  1. Meat Market for the steaks and bar scene. Prime 112 for anything but steak and the Miami Beach scene

    1. Meat Market, also has a great scene and vibe but its more low key and locals. You may wait but it wont be for over an hour and the hostess is super nice... whereas prime can sometimes make you wait for a really really long time and they are arrogant. Plus at meat market when you wait its easy to get a drink. Last time i was at prime we had to fight through a crowd and wait in a crowd... getting the bartneders attention was impossible.
      As for the food, i think the cooking at meat market is more thoughtful and they have alot of nice fish, meat, and side order options for the non-beef eater. I think the steaks at prime are good quality but the prep of the steak and sides is very clumsy and boring (a ton of salt and truffle oil, end of story).
      The service at meat market is better, ive been probably 10 times and always feel like our waiter is not only attentive but very very very knowledgeable. I had a girlfried who used to work there as a cocktail waitress and she said even as a cocktail waitress she was required to memorize the entire food menu down to the last detail during her training. It is a well run restaurant and alot of fun without the fuss and pretentious attitude of prime
