The Grill on the Alley
Aventura, FL 33180
Miami New Times' Description
Between frenzied flings with wasabi foams, foie gras ice cream, and other frivolous foods, diners return to safe and steady steak houses such as The Grill on the Alley. The original Grill has thrilled Beverly Hills A-listers since 1984, and this Aventura branch relies on the same menu and formula - that of the classic American grill. This means sidecar martinis, shrimp cocktails, and oysters on the half-shell; Prime USDA steaks such as a juicy 16-ounce rib eye; pristine seafood entrées such as pan-seared mahi-mahi amandine; Buick-size baked potatoes, creamed spinach, and a wodgy wedge of iceberg lettuce glopped with blue cheese dressing; six-layer carrot cake, hot cobbler à la mode, and key lime pie - at a tab of $$$$$. So consistent, so reliable, and so comforting in its predictability, the place brings no frills, no ills, and no unexpected thrills. Service is solid, the wine list extensive, and décor streamlined deco. Lunch brings better bargains than dinner.
