Kane Steakhouse in South Beach

Sure to become one of the area’s most exclusive fine dining establishments, boasting a chic, sophisticated design and a seductive menu, Kane Steakhouse, located at 431 Washington Avenue in South Beach’s booming “South of Fifth” area, is now open to the public.

The menu, created by talented chef Daniel Ganem, 28, features a sumptuous array of upscale steakhouse classics: irresistible appetizers, perfectly charred premium cuts of beef, as well as innovative seafood, meat, poultry dishes and creative sides with a uniquely modern spin. The 122-seat restaurant features a beautiful bar offering a vast selection of fine wines and creative cocktails and an elegant private room accommodating 12 guests for small parties and tastings.

Chef Daniel Ganem
Ganem, a rising culinary star, brings to Kane an unbeatable mix of steakhouse savvy and fine dining experience. Previously of Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak and, most recently, Laurent Tourondel’s BLT Steak, Ganem, a Miami native of Chilean descent, has also worked under world-renowned Michelin starred chef Martin Berasategui in the Basque region of Spain.

The culinary journey at Kane begins with a complimentary amuse-bouche, designed to whet the appetite.  Beautifully plated appetizers ($14-$22) include crispy salt cod dumplings served with salsa verde; perfectly roasted Berkshire bacon served alongside a refreshing apple-fennel slaw; the signature Kane salad with charred baby corn, gold beets, cucumbers and asparagus with a Dijon vinaigrette and duck fat potato chips served with a gorgonzola cheese fondue and spicy tomato relish.  This must-try offering is available in family-style portions, the perfect accompaniment to Kane’s icy cocktails.

Meat lovers will be happy to hear that Kane’s menu offers a variety of premium cuts of steak ($44-$86), including a bone-in 20 oz. rib eye–the chef’s favorite cut of meat–a Wagyu dry rubbed skirt steak, tender, center cut chateaubriand for two, and a succulent classic porterhouse, both meant to be shared. Also on offer: filet mignon and New York strip steaks in various sizes as well as a beautiful veal T-bone.

Entrees ($32-$48) include: Dijon crusted Colorado rack of lamb in a bordelaise sauce, a lightly battered yellowtail snapper with chorizo and tomato crab sauce as well as locally-raised organic whole chicken for two, stuffed with bacon, stilton cheese, spinach, expertly deboned by chef Ganem and meant for two.

Rounding out the menu are a slew of innovative sides ($8-$14), such as roasted garlic potato purée, cauliflower au gratin, creamed spinach, crispy fried seaweed, and a creamy jalapeño corn pudding.

Desserts ($8-$19), overseen by Ganem, who started his culinary career as a pastry chef, feature a moist pineapple upside down cake, Kane fried s’mores served with honey-white chocolate ice cream; and churro-style donuts in a box accompanied by Nutella and berry marmalade dipping sauces.
