BLT Steak Opens On South Beach at the Iberostar Berkeley Hotel

After closing in May 2016, BLT Steak is excited to announce its return to South Beach. The acclaimed steakhouse is now open in its new home at the recently refurbished Iberostar Berkeley Hotel (formerly the Berkeley Shore) at 1610 Collins Avenue.  In addition to its modern steakhouse menu, the restaurant will also be offering prix fixe Miami Spice menus at lunch and dinner, now through October 31, 2017, providing an irresistible lure to those interested in checking out its new digs.

“We are very excited to make our anticipated return to South Beach,” offered Keith Treyball, partner, and president of ESquared Hospitality, the parent company of BLT Restaurants.  “In our seven years on Ocean Drive, we built a loyal local client base while attracting visitors from around the world who are familiar with our brand. With our new location on Collins Avenue, we’re planning to pick up where we left off, offering our classic steakhouse fare in an elegant new space with a new chef and refreshed dishes to make a big splash in our new home.” 

Among the new items debuting to Miami audiences on BLT Steak’s menu are dishes that exemplify the brand’s simple yet sophisticated fare:  Steak Tartare Tacos, Snapper Crudo, Uni Toast, Heirloom Tomato, and Beets Salad and Foie Gras Empanadas.  These delicious dishes will share menu space with many beloved BLT staples, including the world-famous gruyere Popovers, along with 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.  Also returning for highly anticipated encore performances are BLT favorites including Tuna Tartare, Dover Sole, Lobster Cobb Salad and Salt Brick Chicken as well as a selection of both classic and updated sides including the renowned Creamed Spinach and Pommes Puree. And what modern steakhouse would be worth it’s salt without a great raw bar menu?  BLT Steak offers a daily selection of East and West Coast oysters as well as seafood platters comprised of oysters, Little Neck clams, jumbo shrimp, crab claws and lobster.

Fully integrated indoor and outdoor spaces include a stylish dining room off the lobby of the beautifully renovated Art Deco hotel as well as a wraparound terrace straddling Collins Avenue and 16th Street.  Seating over 150 indoors and out on the lushly landscaped patio, there is also a unique dining opportunity – a “backyard” perfect for small groups with several communal tables and large party seating alike. BLT Steak will take reservations for up to 12 guests in the main dining room and outdoor seating. General Manager David Weiss, a restaurant industry veteran, who served in the same capacity at BLT Steak’s previous location, will oversee front of the house including the dining room, bar, terrace and food and beverage for the hotel’s rooftop pool deck.

Effective immediately, BLT Steak is open to the public on serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, in addition to in-room dining and the hotel’s rooftop pool deck. Reservations suggested by calling (786) 605-0819. BLT Steak is located at The Berkeley Shore Hotel, 1610 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach.
