“The Forge is one of South Florida's most legendary steakhouses, dating back to 1969. The award-winning restaurant is not your grandfather's steakhouse - although it once was. With its modern décor, ambiance and philosophy, The Forge has undergone a total makeover. The overall design and décor was executed by Francois Frossard. Walls of hand-carved blonde wood and antique mirrors, lilac and white crystal chandeliers and a cascading bubble wall are perfectly interspersed with the historical pieces that adorn the space. The open floor plan of the 6,000-square-foot space allows guests to see and be seen. Don't miss our Tomahawk steak, Truffle Mac & Cheese, Shrimp Cocktail and Soufflés. Take a tour of our Wine Cellar with eight-rooms devoted to the rarest vintages in the world, and even a secret, luxe private dining room, which seats up to 25 guests. Join us every Friday night for our Happy Hour, featuring $50 bottles of Veuve Clicquot Champagne and a DJ.”
