The Miami Beach outpost of Chef Michael Mina‘s extremely successful, award-winning Las Vegas restaurant, StripSteak – an innovative and contemporary steakhouse concept – is now open. StripSteak offers a dynamic dining and bar scene perfectly in sync with Fontainebleau’s reputation as the preeminent destination for sophisticated cuisine and contemporary cocktails. The two-story, indoor-outdoor venue, is sexy, fun, elegant and engaging – a perfect complement to the hotel’s stellar collection of signature restaurants, which includes Scarpetta, Hakkasan and Michael Mina 74.
Located off the historic chateau lobby in the heart of the hotel, StripSteak is a steakhouse for today’s adventurous diner – offering a la carte cuts of steak (many of them from the hotel’s on-site aging room and butcher shop) as well as signature specials that go far beyond traditional steakhouse fare. Executed by chef de cuisine Derrick Roberts, the vast menu runs the gamut, overflowing with options. No steakhouse experience would be complete without a killer raw bar; StripSteak’s includes selections sourced locally through BleauFish – the hotels innovative ocean-to-table live catch program.

According to Urban Daddy :
“It’s a bi-level setup here. Upstairs: a bar with a lounge-y vibe. But downstairs, well, that’s a throwback to the Rat Pack era: gold banquettes circling the room. A massive chandelier. A bar slinging classic things like Sazeracs and Old Fashioneds. Some advice: pass it all. Head toward the glass-encased open kitchen and stake out a booth there. Yes, that’s where they’ll be preparing things like a 50-ounce tomahawk topped with foie. (Also, other stuff you’ll find on the menu here.) So picture it: you. A date. Some synchronous head nodding to a DJ set. Subtle innuendo over golden osetra and tartare, followed by not-so-subtle… whatevers on the bamboo-shrouded patio out by the pool. Oh yeah, there’s a bamboo-shrouded patio out by the pool.”
According to Miami.com :
“The two-story, 12,000-square-foot, 340-seat steakhouse takes over the space previously occupied by Alfred Portale’s Gotham Steak, which has been operating as FB Steakhouse since Portale and the resort parted ways earlier this year. It will be Mina’s second Stripsteak — the other is located in the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas — and his second Fontainebleau restaurant, following last year’s opening of Michael Mina 74, which received a three-and-a-half-star review from the Miami Herald and Miami.com. ‘I’m thrilled to continue what’s been a wonderful partnership with the Fontainebleau,’ Mina says in a statement.” written by Evan S. Benn.
According to SouthFloridaGourmet :
“Created by Michael Mina and executed by chef de cuisine Derrick Roberts, the vast menu runs the gamut between specials that go far beyond traditional steakhouse fare, a bounty of meats and fish prepared on the wood-burning grill and an expansive raw bar. The two-story, 12,000 square feet, 350-seat indoor-outdoor venue with a bamboo-enclosed poolside patio, evokes the rich, stylish elegance of the Art Deco era coupled with a high-energy open kitchen and several convivial cocktail bars. Stripsteak is open Sunday – Thursday from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. – midnight. The lounge is open Sunday – Thursday from 6 p.m. – midnight; Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. – 1 a.m. A DJ will be onsite Thursday – Saturday.”
