Prime One Twelve Restaurant Review: Prime One Twelve is located in The Browns Hotel (back in 1915, Miami Beach's very first). Tables are a hot commodity, and forget walking in without a reservation. The dining rooms are done up in sexy saloon-chic style, and the steakhouse is still one of the most favored places to see and be seen in town. The restaurant dry-ages its USDA Prime beef for 21 to 28 days and offers all the large, beloved cuts such as T-bone, porterhouse and the like; you can also try a $20 Kobe beef hot dog or $30 Kobe burger, though the veal chop is typically the way to go. Sauces include horseradish cream or béarnaise, and among the butters are Gorgonzola or foie gras. There are also “accessories” (sides), which are expensive but irresistible, from creamed spinach or corn to fried green tomatoes and the almost-always-ordered five cheese truffle mac. Non-carnivores can derive their own pleasure with dishes like a fresh wild Alaskan salmon floating in a soft lemon nage, with asparagus and caper whipped potatoes. The vast menu delivers a load of knockout starters, too, which are sizeable enough to make a light meal on their own; try the sweet and spicy chicken wings or Hawaiian big eye tuna tartare. This spot is known for its dessert of fried Oreos.
