Steak 954, Fort Lauderdale

On the ground floor of the trendy W in Fort Lauderdale, is Steven Starr’s Steak 954 with similar pulse of the hotel’s Whiskey Blue disco: dark and IMG_0567a bit noisy yet very hip and fun. Steak 954 is a boutique steak house serving more than just meat and potatoes. (954, by the way, is the local area code!)

Since I was with a group of journalists on a Spa-Chic press trip staying at the W, we never saw the menu. Instead we had family-style tasting of many restaurant offering served with two Casa Lapostolle wines: 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rapel Valley and the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, Rapel Valley.

The prices I’m listing are for regular-sized items on the menu.IMG_0570

For appetizers we sampled tuna tacos ($19) served in a crisp shell unusually topped with seared foie gras and accompanied with guacamole; some thinly sliced prime beef carpaccio ($18) with shreds of Parmesan cheese; and a simple chopped veggie salad ($11).

Our entrees included a prime NY Strip perfectly cooked, sliced ready to share IMG_0577($39), an incredibly tender and juicy roasted natural chicken ($28) and a delicate tender miso black cod ($27) served with bok choy.  I’d return to dine on any of the three. The veggies were fine just nothing spectacular:  tender carrots ($9), delicate broccolini ($9) and way too salty truffle potato gratin ($10).

Dessert — again family-style for our group— included a 12-layer chocolate cake, cheesecake brulee and scoops of IMG_0580banana, piña colada and popcorn cream. Worth the visit.

After dinner, head upstairs the the fourth floor Living Room for nightcap and entertainment, or out to the oceanfront deck replete with a fire pit to keep you warm on a chilly night.

Steak 954 also serves up a delicious brunch with traditional selections of baked goods, cereals, fresh fruit platters, French toast and omelets, yet  the much quieter dining room is filled sunshine.
