Why?! Just tell me why!?
I've read in a couple of places about a BLT Steak opening here in Miami. Why another steakhouse? Are there some secret eyeglasses out there that when you put them on you see Miamians as what they really are, insatiable carnivores who only want steakhouses? (Another set of glasses reveals us as insatiable pastavores wanting only Italian restaurants, but that's being taken over by the fusionovore glasses which reveals, well, you can guess).
What ticks me off is not that Tourandel is opening a steakhouse (well yes, it does tick me off), but that he has a successful seafood restaurant in NYC (BLT Fish). You're coming to Miami. Florida is surrounded by water. You don't see happy cows grazing around (and we know happy cows come from California) but you stick your hand in the bay and pop! there's a snapper!
The bright side I'm seeing in all of this is that just as a building glut has caused a drop in condo prices, maybe a glut of steakhouses will cause a drop in average steakhouse bills? Yeah right.
