STK Miami has reopened after two years adrift, which we are assuming was a rehab stint from its previous hard partying ways. Thankfully, STK Miami has returned with a delectable vengeance. While it is still a trendy venue, STK has reemerged more focused on its cuisine then being “a scene.” Chef Aaron Taylor is also back with some new goodies. We were thoroughly impressed with everything they served us as part of the media tasting. While the steak was great, there were four non-steak dishes that we adored even more.
The first dish to make our eyes widen was a sexy, succulent Seared Octopus with a slight char and mild spice. It was served with purple potatoes, capers, and heirloom tomatoes. Octopus is difficult to cook properly and can sometimes be a bit chewy, but ours was perfect.
You must save room for dessert because the Churro Milkshake – dulce de leche ice cream, cinnamon liquor & a small bucket of warm airy churros, definitely “brings all the boys (and girls) to the yard!” It is way too deelish, festive and pretty not to slurp on. We are sure Kelis would approve.
STK is back, sexier and more delectable than before. Definitely swoop in if you are hungry, thirsty for some creative mixology, or just want to pick up a new South Beach bae.
