The restaurant: Meat Market, 915 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach. A popular staple on Lincoln Road Mall since 2008, Meat Market opened sister locations in Puerto Rico in 2013 and in Palm Beach last year. Look for executive chef Sean Brasel’s take on steakhouse and raw-bar classics, complemented by smart cocktails and a deep wine list.
The table: 50. Leave the outdoor tables for the tourists, and book this corner spot deep in Meat Market’s sexy dining room. Table 50 features an overview of the dining area and bar, while its rounded banquette offers a sense of privacy.
Nearby theater: New World Center, 500 17th St., Miami Beach.
Playing next week: Bassoon soloist Frank Morelli takes the stage at New World Center at 2 p.m. Sunday; from $15. newworldcenter.com.
