In the past years I came to know and love the forge for the antique and grandiose atmosphere that filled the air from the moment you opened the front doors. However, the renovated version was fresh and also awe inspiring. The area for private parties boasts a huge communal table made of Indonesian wood that gives the room a unique grandeur, the wine cellar is still the most quiet and quaint part, and my favorite room, the library was quite the sight for sore eyes (not as dark as the older version but lighter and more welcoming). The remodeling, although not yet finished on the facade, seeps even into every corner of the restaurant even the interesting new bathroom murals.
I went there for diner with a friend last weekend, and was seated at a lovely table in the middle of the library room. The meat variety has been considerably downsized, however in my eyes they cut the fat and left the quintessentials intact. And their chocolate molten cake...yummmm... is still the best! My compliments to the chef, the sous chef, the hostess, the owner, the designer, the waiters, and everyone who makes it worth the drive up from Brickell and will keep me driving there for many more years to come.
My only disappointment was that I use to be a huge fan of their lobster bisque, however this time around I must admit although delicious not the same "meatier" version of the old forge.
