Graduation lunch or dinner UMiami

Hi locals- I need advice on making a dinner reservation for my sons upcoming graduation in May.

We will be a party of 6 and looking for something really special either in Coral Gables or in South Beach. We love Prime steak not sure I can get a reservation.Prime Italian was just ok.

Any other ideas? In the Biltmore is the restaurant any good? TIA

They do have steakhouses in Coral Gables, though many are chains (personally, I am not a fan of Morton’s or Flemings)...for Italian, Bugatti is very good. Small and intimate restaurant but good.

In Brickell there is Edge Steakhouse at The Four Seasons, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, or Il Gabbiano (Italian). I would hold off on Nusr-et Steakhouse unless you have an unlimited budget (good but super expensive).

Red The Steakhouse and Smith & Wollensky—on the water and overlooking the inlet—would be other options in South Beach.

The Biltmore is excellent; close to U of M & used to graduation lunches.

Thanks for the additional suggestions I will call the Bltmore for a reservation. I think South Beach might be too crowded
