El Pama Tavern

Address: 551 N. Federal Highway, Suite 600, Fort Lauderdale

A sophisticated Latin steakhouse with a speakeasy vibe in Flagler Village, El Pama Tavern has a chop to satisfy any craving. From the Bourbon Glazed Pork Chop Tomahawk to seven choices of the best beef cuts that are certified Japanese A5 Wagyu, tender enough to cut with a butter knife. Along with culinary mastery, mixology is above par, too. The Millionaire Beluga Martini, made with mezcal and Beluga vodka, is a must. Be an insider and ask the server for a “caviar bump” – a splash of real Beluga caviar.

JWB Prime Steak and Seafood

Address: At the Margaritaville Beach Resort, 1111 N. Ocean Drive, Hollywood

The Buzz: Is the signature dish at JWB’s better than a cheeseburger in paradise? Well, we’re not going to debate that, but we will say that the restaurant that bears James (Jimmy) William Buffet’s name is prime. Live it up and order the Surf & Turf, a savory eight-ounce center-cut prime filet paired with a hearty-sized broiled lobster tail.

NYY Steak

Address: 5550 NW 40th St., Coconut Creek

The Buzz: The tomahawk ribeye steak, also known as a “cowboy” or a “long bone-in” ribeye gets the personal touch at NYY Steak inside the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. The 32 oz. Long Bone Ribeye here isn’t just made to order, it’s personally etched. Tell Dad you’ve already selected his steak before he takes his seat at the table and he’ll be surprised when the big daddy arrives with his initials carved into the end of the bone. For baseball fans, the upscale steakhouse has a New York Yankees theme, hence the name NYY.

South Florida Steakhouses

The Amalfi Llama

Address: Esplanade at Aventura, 19505 Biscayne Blvd., Suite 1450, Aventura

The Buzz:  Take in the aroma at this rustic, modern live-fire steakhouse that fuses flavors from Southern Patagonia to the Mediterranean coast of Italy. Steaks are made on an open grill, where the idea is to harness fire, smoke and coals to craft the perfect dish. Prepared over the fire is a selection of prime meats — the juiciest most tender cut is the Prime Center Filet. Enjoy any of the steaks with a suggestion from the sommelier’s choice of a wide range of coastal wines.

Bourbon Steak

Address: Inside the JW Marriott Turnberry Resort & Spa, 19999 West Country Club Drive, Aventura

The Buzz: Michelin-starred Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak has been in residence at the swanky Turnberry since 2008 and no wonder. The atmosphere is exceptional, the wine list expansive, and the cuts of beef unforgettable. The most extraordinary is the Dry Aged — a grass-fed bone-in 20-ounce Kansas City Strip, a 40-ounce Porterhouse (for sharing), a 34-ounce Tomahawk, and the list goes on. Select from a trio of sauces from Béarnaise, creamy horseradish, red win au jus, au poivre, chimichurri or Bourbon steak sauce. Try the blue cheese crust on the eight-ounce filet mignon created with Mina’s gift of infusing flavors to perfection.
