Where To Score the Best Deals on the Biggest Cuts of Beef
Tenderloins are the cookies of the beef world. They're selfish, ideal for one patron to consume in just a few mouthfuls. But larger steaks, such as porterhouses and rib eyes, are like layer cakes: generous, indulgent, and meant to be shared.
Because these cuts usually cost more than filets, we've ranked eight of the most munificent steaks in Miami according to price per ounce. Here's where to score the best deals on some serious cuts of beef.
Bone-in rib eye, AKA côte de bœuf, cowboy steak, tomahawk rib eye
2. The Cypress Room, 34-ounce côte de bœuf for $139 ($4.09 per ounce)
Sure, it's pricey. But this steak comes from one of Miami's best kitchens. Plus, the classy restaurant removes the fat and spinalis -- the heavily marbled muscle surrounding the ribeye -- from each steak. That means you get more of what you really want: Frenched bone-in rib eyes that have been dry-aged for a whopping 35 days.
1. Gotham Steak, 50-ounce tomahawk rib eye for $150 ($3 per ounce)
A deal at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach? Indeed, it may be hard to believe -- especially coming from a place that offers a $2,000 dinner for two. But it's true: Gotham Steak's colossal tomahawk is the most affordable of its kind. Just don't forget to validate your eye-popping valet ticket on the way out.
