In a league of its own on South Beach’s iconic Ocean Drive, within the exquisite environs of the elegantly renovated Betsy Hotel, the beachfront BLT Steak presents a world-class dining experience with a South Florida perspective.
BLT, or Bistro Laurent Tourondel, is the personal stamp of the acclaimed chef and restaurateur, who was named “2007 Restaurateur of the Year” by Bon Appétit magazine. BLT Steak opened in Manhattan in 2004 as a revolutionary modern American steakhouse and was named one of Esquire magazine’s “Best New Restaurants in America” shortly after receiving a two-star review from The New York Times.
At BLT Steak, Tourondel elevates the classic American steakhouse with his signature style, French training and all-around finesse. The Miami menu offers regional blackboard specials and a number of raw bar selections.
BLT Steak offers a variety of cuts of USDA Prime, Certified Black Angus and American Wagyu beef, each naturally aged for maximum tenderness and flavor and served finished with herb butter in a cast-iron pan. Fresh fish selections, delicate and perfectly-cooked, also arrive in steakhouse-sized portions. The menu is organized by category, with a selection of sauces such as peppercorn, chimichurri and béarnaise to complement the entrées.
