Meat Market is coming to Palm Beach, and I don’t mean that kind of meat market.
This Meat Market is a modern, inventive, seriously upscale steakhouse, cheffed by Sean Brasel, one of the best chefs in South Florida you’ve probably never heard of. The sibling of the original Meat Market on Miami’s bustling Lincoln Road, the local MM is slated to open in November in the space at 191 Bradley Place that was once home to the Palm Beach Steakhouse.
That old steakhouse space will be redone in a sexy, classy, contemporary vein, with inlaid mahogany tables, leather banquettes, marble-topped bar and crimson-tinged lighting. Speaking of bars, there will also be MM’s signature Crudo Bar, featuring mixological cocktails, wines by the glass, and a variety of oysters, tiraditos, ceviches and creative bar bites.
As for the regular menu, the local version hasn’t been finalized yet, but if the Miami menu is any guide (and it probably is), look for dishes like white truffle American Kobe beef tartare, crab and lobster cake with remoulade, grass-fed buffalo tenderloin and wood-grilled local snapper with celery root puree.
And, of course, there’s the meat. Certified Angus beef in several different cuts, plus “reserve cuts” of Australian Wagyu, Creekstone Farm dry-aged porterhouse and Gold Label Kobe filet mignon. Good beef, like Palm Beach, ain’t exactly cheap, so be prepared to shell out some green for your red meat. Miami prices range from $26 for half an order of New York strip to $95 for that Gold Label Kobe filet.
There will be more details available as the opening date gets closer so stay tuned. . .
