RCI Announces Rick’s Steakhouse & Lounge at Scarlett’s Cabaret Miami
RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK) announced that Scarlett’s Cabaret Miami is opening the first of its kind Rick’s Steakhouse and Lounge, offering high-end dining along with a sophisticated upscale lounge, bringing the Rick’s Cabaret’s New York steakhouse experience to South Florida.
The 3,000 square foot Rick’s, which seats up to 150, is next to Scarlett’s, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami off the Hallandale Beach exit of I-95, the major-north south highway through Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. Scarlett’s is considered one of the best adult nightclubs in the country, known for its high-energy late night party scene that attracts men and women.
Ed Anakar, President of RCI Management, said that in addition to its menu and selection of top-shelf spirits, wine and cigars, Rick’s will be one of the few, if any, restaurants of its kind in the area accepting bitcoin and open from 8PM-5AM Wednesday through Saturday.
The kitchen is being supervised by Executive Chef Bryan Doell, who worked under chef Allen Susser, winner of the prestigious James Beard Award. “We focused on developing a select number of high-quality selections,” said Doell. “While steak is the star of the show, there is something for everybody.”
Top steak dishes include a 10-ounce, upper two-thirds Angus center cut filet mignon that has the tenderness of a prime filet with the distinct bold flavor of Angus beef; a phenomenal 18-ounce upper two-thirds Angus ribeye steak; and a classic 16-ounce prime New York strip steak.
Top seafood dishes include a 9-ounce Faroe Island Bakkafrost salmon, with a delicious, rich taste that melts in your mouth; a colossal crab meat cocktail that lives up to its name; and a Key West style crab cake with real Key Lime aioli.
Shawn Barnes, General Manager of Scarlett’s, created a décor reminiscent of a luxurious, timeless speakeasy, with elegant black and gold leather couches and banquettes; marble tabletops streaked with black and gold; a black felt pool table; and low level, soft gold chandeliers.
“Rick’s was designed to attract its own clientele as well as complement Scarlett’s party experience with a quieter, more relaxed environment, featuring alluring house music,” said Barnes.
Todd Giordano, who has a background in high-end dining at Cafe Martorano, is leading the project as Rick’s Manager. For reservations, contact Giordano at 856-426-1053 or [email protected]. Address is 2920 SW 30th Avenue, Pembrooke Park, FL, 33009.
