THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tuscan Steak Restaurant Review

: Posh retro-modern décor, blending state-of-the-art lighting with faux-rustic brick walls, dark woods and plush leather booths, create a fine milieu for this quintessentially South Beach take on an Italian steakhouse. Mammoth martinis from a bar running the length of the dining room suggest that drink is as significant to the experience as food, and it’s true that the potent cocktails are not kid stuff. That said, huge platters of food accessible enough for all ages, and served to share, make the place a good choice for family dinners. Chef Benjamin Rottkamp (whose past posts range from Joachim Splichal’s Zucca to Talula in Sobe) creates some specials, but the menu’s mostly tried-and-true crowd-pleasers: the signature assertively (if not authentically) marinated “Florentine” T-bone steak, served pre-sliced for American-style convenience; wonderfully airy gnocchi, with rich Gorgonzola cream or fresh tomato-basil sauce (served, like most pastas, in whole or half portions); numerous items liberally dosed with white truffle oil---garlic bread, mashed potatoes, risotto, glazed duck, even an à la carte serving of oil only. Desserts include cheesecake, chocolate mousse and similar predictable choices, but no worries; the addictive amaretto-infused mashed sweet potatoes are dessert-like enough that it’s unnecessary to try to find room, somewhere, for the extra course.
