A former NFL player and—at 347 wins—the winningest coach for the Colts and Dolphins, Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Don Shula coaches an entirely different kind of team now. Together with his son, Dave, also a former NFL player and coach, Shula wrangles a team of chefs, servers, and adventurous foodies at his eponymous steak house.
On a menu rife with protein-rich seafood including twin lobster tails and lump crab cakes, the Shula Cut steaks reign supreme. The center-cut, aged, Black Angus steaks come in sizes all the way up to the mack daddy of them all: the 48-ounce porterhouse. This monstrous meal has its own exclusive club, whose invite-only membership is extended to brave souls who can finish the entire steak in one sitting or moo their full name with perfect pronunciation.
These sumptuous steaks come unadorned or with signature sauces such as a red-wine-herb demi, a peppercorn sauce, a red-pepper chimichurri, or a béarnaise sauce. Side dishes include crab mac 'n' cheese, truffle fries, or a twice-baked potato—the baked potato’s over-achieving brother.
