Power dining is best done at the appropriate, predetermined power dining restaurants. Choose one of these for the ultimate experience. Don’t forget the power tie – or handbag to seal the deal.

 

1 Truluck's

A relative newcomer to downtown, Truluck’s this Texan import is the place downtown for stone crab, which comes from their own fisheries, and is never frozen. Salad Louis, Trout Amandine and Norwegian Halibut show off this Power Lunch Spot’s marine food prowess, but if that doesn’t float your fishing boat, order up a juicy All Natural Prime New York Strip.
777 Brickell Ave., Miami, FL., 33131, 305.579.0035

2 Il Gabbiano

Power lunch places tend to be the best of their breed and Il Gabbiano is no different. The restaurant is lauded as the best Italian food in Miami and has a stunning view of the Biscayne Bay to boot. Not that the city’s most powerful bankers are going to look up from their smartphones and Risotto ai Porcini to take it all in.
335 South Biscayne Blvd., Miami FL., 33131, 305.373.0063

3 Zuma

If Miami had Japanese businessmen, they would eat at Zuma. Instead, powerbrokers of the hipper ilk come to enjoy the modern Japanese fare that is served inside the Epic Hotel. The multi-course lunch caters to this crowd and offers up Sashimi, Branzino, Black Cod and Ribeye served in under an hour. On weekends the lunch turns into one of the most fabulous brunch spots downtown.
270 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami FL., 33131, 305.577.0277

4 Hillstone

Formerly Houston’s, the same restaurant group is taking the American concept up to a new level with Hillstone. Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and Hardwood Grilled Trout as well as huge salads, burgers and even sushi keep every one happy at this power lunch spot on Miracle Mile.
201 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, FL., 33134, 305.529.0141

5 The Capital Grille

The original power dining spot downtown both because of its proximity to the power towers of Brickell and the restaurant’s rep as the place for steaks from LA to Miami and just about every state in between. Steaks are dry aged and “hand trimmed.” Sides are great renditions of standard steak house fare.
