NoBe restaurant that is dog-friendly &...

can accommodate a party of 10 this Sunday at 1 pm - does it exist? We just moved from SoBe to NoBe & I'm not completely familiar with my new 'hood. I have family coming into town & we want a nice meal but nothing over-the-top pricey. Would love to try CPrimaPasta but are they dog-friendly?

Thanks!!! Kat

Agreed - see my reply to the entire post:

Mark's South Beach Closing

My husband got a job at Mark's SoBe about a month before they closed, worked 7 days/week for them when their other new server for the new breakfast/lunch service didn't work out and STILL has not received his final paycheck from there for two weeks of work.

VERY shady & disappointing considering Mark's good rep up until now.

Chicharrones in South Beach?

What can I say - my husband & I both enjoy chicharrones and I'm wondering if there is anywhere on Miami Beach, preferably South Beach, to get them? I did see them at SoBe Munchies on Lincoln Road but the employees were not interested in helping me since I don't speak Spanish, so I have not been back. Is there anywhere else to try?

texas de brazil, south beach open?

Actually I called the Dolphin Mall location yesterday to ask & they said hopefully by the end of November but no firm date yet. :(

Thanksgiving on South Beach

Since we aren't able to head out of town this year, some of the family is coming to visit us. We live in a tiny apt in Miami Beach with just a mere kitchenette, so T-giving dinner at home is not an option.

Opentable is not a big help with ideas for a SoBe Thanksgiving lunch so I'm reaching out to the Florida Chowhounds for some ideas! Definitely looking for something budget-friendly, $20-25/entree so that leaves out the extravagant brunches like The Ritz-Carlton.

Any ideas? Are most restaurants going to be open midday in the SoBe area?

Thanks all! Kat

Best steakhouse in Miami/Miami Beach?

Any thoughts on Prime Blue Grille? Is it even in the same category as Morton's & Capital Grille?

The Hubby is interested in The Forge but all the recent reviews I've read have been negative.

Best steakhouse in Miami/Miami Beach?

Hi Chowhounds! Long time reader, first time poster.

Our 2nd Anniversary is coming up & I've decided to take The Hubby to a steakhouse since he is a self-proclaimed 'meat & potatoes guy.' I'm a wannabe chowhound with champagne tastes but a kool-aid budget & he humors me by going wherever I want to go, so I want to go somewhere I know he will truly enjoy our dinner.

I can't say 'money is no object' but am prepared for a big splurge for the special occasion, so I'd love to see what names comes up the most & why. I've probably heard of all the places you are going to mention but I want to see which ones you Chowhounds truly like the best!

Thanks SO much!
