BLT Steak, one of South Florida’s most acclaimed dining destinations, since its opening in spring 2009 until closing in May 2016, will re-open this summer at the newly refurbished and highly anticipated Iberostar Berkeley Hotel.
Located at 1610 Collins Avenue, a stone’s throw from its former location, the indoor/outdoor South Beach restaurant will boast 160 seats surrounding the hotel lobby, front and side of the building. According to Keith Treyball, President of ESquared Hospitality, BLT Restaurants’ parent company, all food and beverage for the hotel, including the pool bar and terrace, will be handled by BLT Steak.
The restaurant will embrace the signature BLT Steak menu, featuring the finest cuts of USDA Prime Certified Angus beef available, including the signature 28 day dry-aged New York strip, Kansas City bone-in strip and Porterhouse for two; as well as beloved classics including Tuna Tartare, Dover Sole, Lobster Cobb Salad, and the restaurant’s world-famous warm gruyere-laced Popovers. Additionally, BLT Steak will feature the brand’s seasonal blackboard menu, which will change frequently to reflect seasonal, ingredient-driven specialties, and dishes unique to South Beach. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
