Prime One Twelve Restaurant Review: Located in The Browns Hotel (back in 1915, Miami Beach's very first), Prime One Twelve draws crowds that would have overwhelmed the neighborhood back then. The dining rooms are done up in sexy saloon-chic style, and the steakhouse fare is first-rate. The restaurant dry-ages its USDA Prime beef for 21 to 28 days and offers all the large, beloved cuts like T-bone, porterhouse and the like; you can also try a $20 Kobe beef hot dog or $30 Kobe burger. Sides are separate, expensive and irresistible, from broccoli rabe with chilies to rum-baked sweet plantains to four-cheese truffled macaroni. Chef-composed seafood creations---which include starch and veg sides---are prepared with no less love here, so the 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 a salad of Fanny Bay oysters, spinach, frisée and smoked bacon. Desserts such as a runny-centered chocolate pudding cake with sweet cream and liqueured Amarena cherries bring a satisfying meal to a fine finish.
