With commitment to an outstanding dining experience and a promise of only the highest quality ingredients, it’s no surprise that Miami’s Red, The Steakhouse has garnered a reputation as one of the very best of its kind. It even feels as though the team behind RED has fostered an entirely new breed of steakhouse.
Serving only the top 1.5 percent of beef available worldwide, Red is no stranger to outstanding reviews. It was named one of the top 10 steakhouses in the country by Esquire, Playboy and Food & Wine Magazine, and Forbes called it one of the “15 most memorable meals of 2013.”
Executive Chef Peter Vauthy is RED’s shining star. His dedication to serving nothing but the best extends past the importation of real Kobe beef from Japan. He applies a similar strategy to everything on the menu. Says Chef Vauthy, “We order and work with the best. If we don’t have what the world says is the best, we search for it until we track it down. We don’t deal with second-rate ingredients here.” It is this trusted assurance and a delectable outcome that keeps RED’s many loyal clients coming back for more.
When it comes to knowledge of the menu, Chef Vauthy is more than willing to personally share his expertise with the clientele, and although this is a usual occurrence at RED, Vauthy knows the importance of a staff that shares this expertise. In order to accomplish this, he conducts two annual food classes (between four and five hours long) to educate his employees on every component of RED’s menus.
RED has off-the-menu items, too; try the gigantic “side” of mouthwatering Lobster Mac N Cheese, made with four cheeses, four ounces of lobster, and organic trotolle pasta, or ask about the secret Flash Fried Red Lobster (Peter will tell you the backstory).
In addition to an unrivaled menu and an unprecedented approach to service, RED boasts an electric location in the heart of South Beach—situated in the iconic “South of Fifth” neighborhood just a few blocks from the beach and some of Miami’s hottest nightlife. An evening at RED can effortlessly extend from the meal of a lifetime to an unforgettable night.
