Travel to the Southern-most point of South Beach, and located right on the water, you will find a dining gem: Smith & Wollensky.
The stand-alone restaurant sits in the picturesque South Pointe Park, one of the last areas in South Beach that has not given way to high-rise condominiums that have recently taken over the skyline.
The restaurant’s large picturesque windows lend perfect views of the magnificent sights of the cruise-liners and barges that make their way in and out of the Port of Miami throughout the day.
Head out to the waterfront patio seating and grab a seat at the bar with the rest of Miami’s in-crowd and enjoy the sites and sounds, as you take a glimpse at how the other half lives.
While the waterfront location alone is enough to guarantee the success of this restaurant, rest assured, the cuisine is one of the best in South Beach. If you have never had a taste of Smith’s dry-aged meats, you are missing out on a culinary experience like no other.
A warning: One bite of the Filet Mignon dipped in their exquisite béarnaise sauce will leave every other steak for the rest of your life tasting sub-par.
With a Smith and Wollensky’s location open in almost every major city throughout the US, it is no question why the restaurant group enjoys such success: The food and service are five star, and lend themselves to a dining experience that should not be missed.
Smith & Wollensky is located at 1 Washington Avenue in South Pointe Park, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139. Phone: 305.673.2800
