My friend Julie and I had dinner at The Lion with Chef John DeLucie last week. John is certainly taming the Lion! He has created an amazing restaurant off the heels of his time as executive chef at The Waverly Inn. John is an awesome guy and chef!
Dinner was filled with fabulous food, great conversation, scrumptious cocktails, and a celebration. John just opened his new resto in Miami-The Royal at The Raleigh Hotel. He’s bringing his down home American-style-fare to South Beach!
Every night at The Lion, it’s a ” who’s who” of celebs, and this night was no different. Fashion royalty was in the house- Calvin Klein and Carolina Herrera.

I had dinner at Kenmare during opening week (late March), and have been back a few times since. It’s an elegant and modern spot, and so is the crowd! The food is pretty good but they seem to be focused more on the scene.
Featuring a new american menu- my CHOW FAVES are:
This is definitely a spot where there’s no separation between church and state (dinner and nightlife). It’s great when you want a cool and upbeat environment- and you can always go downstairs to SL (club/lounge) to take things up a notch. Be prepared for a Euro and B&T crowd on certain nights at SL.
Abe & Arthur’s serves typical American fare reminiscent of a steak house menu with a few surprises.
I usually go with a group (which they are totally equipped for) and we share everything.
