Bourbon Steak Restaurant Review: Celebrity chef and restaurateur Michael Mina is behind this posh steakhouse designed by Tony Chi featuring butter-poached Prime cuts finished in the flames of a wood grill, and accompanied by bourbon steak sauce. Executive chef Gabe Fenton adds seasonal seafood specials like pan-seared local snapper and grilled tiger prawns. Carnivores come for the 16-ounce Kansas City strip; 10-ounce grass-fed Florida Wagyu filet mignon; and the famed off-menu burger with duck fat fries and a Jim Beam adult milkshake. Don't overlook the Maine lobster potpie or Hudson Valley foie gras, however. Desserts feature a roasted white chocolate bread pudding, espresso panna cotta or house baked beignets with 18-year Macallan butterscotch for dipping. The wine list is extensive and mostly expensive, but does include a "sommelier's secret values" section of boutique bottles, some in the $40-$50 range.
