Open since March 2009, celebrated chef Laurent Tourondel’s modern American steakhouse at the historic Betsy Hotel on South Beach’s iconic Ocean Drive gives South Florida diners a taste of Tourondel’s award-winning signature style, in a sophisticated yet relaxed beachfront setting. The 2007 Restaurateur of the Year’s latest venture showcases prime 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, as well as a variety of fresh fish selections imbued with Tourondel’s French flair and overall finesse. Regional blackboard specials and a number of raw bar selections are perfectly interpreted by chef de cuisine Samuel Gorenstein, a Miami native who trained with Tourondel in New York.
Serving breakfast lunch and dinner, BLT Steak also encompasses the BLT Bar, which boasts an extensive cocktail list featuring six signature house creations and 13 classic drinks as well as a bar menu offering decadent snacks and light bites. Designed by Michael Bagley, BLT Steak integrates traditional elements of the French bistro with those of an American steakhouse. A refined palette of crisp whites, cool greens and light woods conveys an elegance fitting for the tropical colonial-style hotel. The dining room features crème-colored suede chairs and banquettes with dark brown piping, breezy decorative accents and a beautifully-restored pink terrazzo floor with seating for 96 inside and another 84 on an expansive beach front patio. The bustling 11-seat bar and 25-seat lounge are located adjacent to the dining room. BLT Steak is located at The Betsy Hotel, 1440 Ocean Drive, South Beach, FL 33139. BLT Steak is open seven days a week, serving breakfast 7 AM – 11 AM, lunch 11 AM – 2:30 PM, and dinner 5 PM – 11 PM
