Rick’s Steakhouse and Lounge to Open in South Florida

RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. announced that Scarlett’s Cabaret Miami is opening the first of its kind Rick’s Steakhouse and Lounge Wednesday night, offering high-end dining along with a sophisticated upscale lounge, bringing the Rick’s Cabaret New York steakhouse experience to South Florida.

The 3,000 square foot Rick’s Steakhouse and Lounge, which seats up to 150, is next to Scarlett’s, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami off the Hallandale Beach exit of I-95, the major-north south highway through Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. Scarlett’s is considered one of the best adult nightclubs in the country, known for its high-energy late night party scene that attracts men and women.

Ed Anakar, president of RCI Management, said that in addition to its menu and selection of top-shelf spirits, wines and cigars, Rick’s will be one of the few, if any, restaurants of its kind in the area accepting Bitcoin and open 8 PM to 5 AM, Wednesday through Saturday. Table reservations are required for dinner or bottle service unless you are already at Scarlett’s. Rick’s is also available for private parties.

The kitchen is being supervised by Executive Chef Bryan Doell, who worked under chef Allen Susser, winner of the prestigious James Beard Award. “We focused on developing a select number of high-quality dishes,” says Doell. “While steak is the star of the show, there is something for everybody.”

Top steak choices include a 10-ounce, upper two-thirds Angus center cut filet mignon that has the tenderness of a prime filet with the distinct bold flavor of Angus beef; a phenomenal 18-ounce upper two-thirds Angus ribeye steak; and a classic 16-ounce prime New York strip steak.

Top seafood selections include a 9-ounce Faroe Island Bakkafrost salmon, with a delicious, rich taste that melts in your mouth; a colossal crab meat cocktail that lives up to its name; and Key West style crab cakes with real Key Lime aioli.

Shawn Barnes, General Manager of Scarlett’s, created a décor reminiscent of a luxurious, timeless speakeasy, with elegant black and gold leather couches and banquettes; marble tabletops streaked with black and gold; a black felt pool table; and low level, soft gold chandeliers. “Rick’s was designed to attract its own clientele as well as complement Scarlett’s party experience with a quieter, more relaxed environment, featuring alluring house music,” says Barnes.
