Miami Celebrity Dining Hotspot – The Forge Restaurant and Wine BarMay 22, 2012
What do Jennifer Lopez and Venus Williams have in common? They both enjoy the lavish atmosphere and culinary expertise found at The Forge Restaurant and Wine Bar in Miami Beach, Florida. Coincidentally, they both typically enjoy a tasty lobster dish while they’re there, although J-Lo’s preference for grilled lobster is a little more expected than Venus Williams’ preference for a lobster PB&J… Yes, you read that right – it’s a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with boiled-then-shredded lobster mixed right in!
The unique food, nationwide recognition and celebrity visits are not the only thing that sets The Forge apart from the rest of Miami’s restaurants. Inside this elite establishment you will find a whimsical decor bordering on lavish that seems a very fitting home for Chef Dewey LoSasso’s progressive recipes. Start your meal off with Black River Ossetra Caviar with a little dollop of crème fraiche, perhaps followed up by a baked polenta and all leading to The Forge’s delicious “Coffee and Eggs” – a coffee encrusted ribeye steak with a hearty slice of goat cheese frittata (a type of egg pie, similar to a quiche).
Looking for a true taste of high-class Miami cuisine, confirmed by celebrity preference? Enjoy a four course private meal for you and your group, as long as you’re willing to call and work out the details with the chef – The private group meals usually come in around $100 per plate, not including drinks. When you eat at The Forge, you’ll know that you’re eating from the same chef as Jennifer Lopez, Venus Williams, Dwayne Johnson, several of Miami’s former and current star athletes and more…If it’s good enough for them, it’s almost certainly good enough for you!
