Seeking steakhouse or Brazilian/Argentine restaurant recommendations in the area

Planning a special occasion celebration dinner, but not wanting to break the bank TOO much.

The guest of honor is a steak lover, so I'm seeking a steakhouse that's not a chain, or even better a Brazilian churrascaria place that will offer a variety of meat. (Or an Argentine place.)

Not big drinkers, so that's not really an issue. Party of 10-12 or so. Anywhere West Palm Beach area down to the Miami area.

Any recommendations?

  1. Grazianos on Bird Rd. in Miami

    1. Gol on Atlantic Ave Delray. About $40 a head. Some tips if you go, don't fill up too much on their salad buffet bar, don't let them push you to eat at their pace.

      1. Chima in Fort Lauderdale. Brazilian with great selection and service. Atmosphere is lively and contemporary. If you don't drink, you won't spend much. I'd say it's the classiest churrascaria that I've been to in S Florida.

        1. Thanks for these great suggestions so far. Chima sounds like a good possibility.

          But let me ask: If we decide we want to give up the idea of Brazilian and do a good steakhouse in or near Miami, what are your best suggestions?

            BLT Steak in the Betsy Hotel or Prime One Twelve. Both are top notch.

              Bourbon Steak, Aventura. Impeccable steakhouse, finest-kind cocktails, excellent wine list -- guaranteed to add a couple points to your personal testosterone level, Almost as good as renting a Lambo!

                Having been to both chima and graziano's I would easily take grazianos btw.

            2. I would also look into Las Vacas Gordas. I enjoy their food a few friends have had slow service there but other than that it was delicious.
