Outside Ballyhoo Grill, a sign made to look like a colorful speedboat beckons to passersby, hinting at the smorgasbord of fresh seafood to be found within. A tropical theme permeates the space, with live music setting a relaxing mood and nautical decor—such as a surfboard, an alligator head, and a stuffed and mounted kraken—adorning the walls. Guests dine on surf 'n' turf plates, fish tacos, pulled pork, and burgers as they share friendly conversation and clink cocktail glasses and mugs of draft beer.

Texas de Brazil blends the steak-centric cuisine of Texas with the traditional churrasco method of slow-roasting meat over an open flame grill to form a luscious meaty mélange. The full dinner ($39.99) marches out a cavalcade of choice cuts, allowing diners to welcome continuous windfalls of flavorful proteins. Brandish your table's provided card, green on one side, red on the other, and it will function as a meat traffic light that summons servers to either send stacks of seasoned beef, pork, or lamb skewers or halt plate traffic like a decorated culinary crossing guard. Or feel free to substitute greens for the grill by stepping into the sprawling salad-bar conga line ($24.99), two-stepping through toothsome goodies such as imported cheeses, steamed asparagus, and dozens of other hors d'oeuvres.

Bern's Steak House Aged, Hand-Cut Steaks | Award-Winning Wine Selection | Renowned Dessert Room | Farm-Fresh Vegetables Sample Menu Meat dish: a 60-ounce sirloin aged six weeks, cut by hand, and broiled to your liking. The Travel Channel heartily recommends it—and heartily recommends sharing. Seafood dish: a neon-green caviar of flying fish roe coated with Japanese horseradish. It's one of more than 20 available from the steak house's caviar menu. Vegetarian-friendly dish: tasting plates from either of Bern's in-house cheese caves, whose daily-changing selection includes goat gouda. What's in a Name: Bern Laxer once vowed to never enter the restaurant business. Thankfully, that vow didn't last, and after running a successful luncheonette with his wife, Gert, Bern opened Bern's Steak House in March of 1956. These days, Bern and Gert's son, David, oversees the family business. While You're Waiting: Peruse a list of the more than half a million bottles stocked in Bern's wine cellar. Recipient of Wine Spectator's 2013 Grand Award, the list—updated four times a year—includes more than 5,500 reds, 1,000 whites, and 200 table wines by the glass. Inside Tips Save Room for Dessert. Bern's second floor consists of the Harry Waugh Dessert Room, where California redwood wine holding tanks surround 48 enclosed booths. Each booth's stereo system pipes in your choice of tunes as you savor nearly 50 desserts made by a 20-person house pastry team. Said sweets range from macadamia-nut ice cream, which is made using Bern's secret recipe, to more than 1,000 dessert wines and spirits. After your meal, be sure to take advantage of complimentary tours of Bern's kitchen and wine cellar. When to Go: Reservations are required at least two weeks in advance during Bern's busy season during October–March, so either mark your calendars ahead of time or try your luck during the spring and summer months. If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Stop by the steak house's sister restaurant, SideBern's (2208 W. Morrison Avenue). Initially an after-dinner alternative to the Harry Waugh Dessert Room, SideBern's now showcases new American cuisine by James Beard semi-finalist Chad Johnson.

Living up to your dad's legacy can be tough when your dad was George Steinbrenner's go-to guy. Malio Iavarone often hosted "The Boss" during his tenure as the Yankees manager, serving him steaks at the original Malio's Steakhouse on South Dale Mabry. Today, Malio's son Derek works to produce similar hype at a new, swankier location in Rivergate Tower, where the one-word difference in the venue's name—"Prime" hints at the USDA Prime beef cooked within—belies the recipes’ faithful adherence to tradition. Each steak, from the New York strip to the filet, receives a simple yet meticulously scattered dash of salt and pepper. Couples can even go all-out with a 40-oz. prime porterhouse for two, admittedly a more filling romantic dinner than catching and swallowing each other’s blown kisses. Aside from tender cuts of beef, the menu at Malio's boasts lamb and veal chops as well as lobster tails and Chilean sea bass cooked several ways, including blackened, Theresa-style, and pan-fried. Like the patrons who like their steaks rare, Malio’s Prime Steakhouse seems enamored with the color red. Broad red columns stand between the windows overlooking the waterfront, and framed works by Joe Testa-Secca—Art Professor Emeritus at the University of Tampa—hang over the crimson semicircular booths. The reds from a list of more than 200 wines complete the motif.
