Business Dinner in South Beach

sillysully Nov 9, 2011 05:03 AM

Looking for a steakhouse alternative for group of 8 men. Already having one meal at Scarpetta. Thought of Casa Tua - but is it more a couples type place? Also considered Joe's Stone Crab. Would like great food, service and atmosphere that can handle group of guys. Also need to consider driving distance b/c not renting cars. Walking distance would be great, but other than Fontainbleu, where they're staying, couldn't find anything myself that fit the bill. Casa Tua looks to be an easy cab ride, but not sure. Thanks.

    Joe's is always a good call especially if group is from out of town.
    Altamare is appropriate for a business dinner as well

      Your best bets are 1500 degrees (very good food) and Cecconi's (which I have never been to). Both are right near the hotel and are appropriate venues for what you are looking for.

      I am not quite sure what you are looking for foodwise but if chinese is on the table then add Hakkasan to the list.

        How about Prime Italian? Something for everyone (steaks and family style Italian) decent scene, but not as loud as Prime 112 and on the outer edge of an easy cab ride.

        Also, the Forge. Very easy cab ride or long walk. Good scene. Food is hit or miss.
