Wine racks the color of warm wheat chaff crisscross the walls at Holleman’s Restaurant, the sleek bodies of the bottles reflecting servers as they slip through the dining room. The vessels, stamped with labels from France, Argentina, and Italy shimmer beneath visions of Black Angus steaks, fresh pasta, and racks of New Zealand lamb. From the kitchen drift the scents of garlic-and-rosemary demi-glace and cognac-and-peppercorn sauce. In that busy room, New York strip steak crackles against the open-flame grill and chefs busily mold crabcakes.
Beneath wrought-iron chandeliers, the high-topped tables are covered in crisp white cloths like ghosts appearing in traffic court. On some evenings, the smooth twang of an electric guitar fills the room, flitting softly beneath a crooning singer.
The 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant gets its name from the 94th Fighter Squadron, the second-oldest currently active fighter squad in the U.S. military. The décor further suits the theme, with plenty of World War II aviation memorabilia inside the 200-seat dining room, which happens to overlook the runways at Miami International Airport. While dining here gives one the opportunity to watch planes land, take off and even don headphones that are tuned to the air traffic control chatter, the menu itself is largely low-flying. Landlocked lunch options like prime rib, filet mignon and seafood make up the majority of the eats, while a Sunday champagne buffet brunch provides made-to-order pasta and omelets. Be sure to save room for soaring desserts.
Though pastas and other Italian specialties find their way onto the menu, the chefs at Argentina Steakhouse primarily highlight the culinary culture of their restaurant's eponymous country. Using traditional cooking methods including the parrilla grill, they fill empanadas with beef or plantains, sizzle rib-eye steaks, top breaded chicken with fried eggs, and stuff argentine sausages. The chefs let the aromas of their cooking fill the dining room to help lost busboys find their way back to the kitchen. They also customize catering platters for a range of events, from anniversaries to business meetings to quinceañeras.
Chefs at High Steaks BBQ prepare barbecue classics from across the south. They expertly slice some cuts into brisket before slowly smoke roasting them in a red wine and BBQ spice marmalade; others they grill into juicy ribeyes. There’s Carolina-style barbecue pork—which chefs slow-smoke and hand chop from the bone—and Memphis-style ribs rubbed with natural spices and kissed by Elvis’s ghost. Drawing inspiration from the Lone Star State, the chefs also smoke-roast certified Angus brisket in a spiced red-wine marmalade. Organic-cornmeal hush puppies and a handful of homemade desserts round out each meal.
High Steaks BBQ accommodates guests in their main dining room or 60-seat private dining room, where visitors can watch the game on a high-definition TV or ritually torch the opposing team’s jerseys in the brick fireplace.
From the outside, China Steak House's diner-style windows and corner location almost make the restaurant feel torn from an Edward Hopper painting—with the addition of red lanterns hanging from its awning. But within, it’s the eatery's commitment to a variety of regional Chinese flavors that’s the main draw. Cantonese noodle dishes find good company alongside the menu’s spicy Szechuan entrees and occasional Miami-style touches—such fried plantains—find their way into the mix. The dining room incorporates a bit of a ballroom vibe with its high-backed booths and heavy wood chairs surrounding lacquered tables that add class to an already refined dining experience.
