I know SW Florida pretty well, but infrequently get to the "other" coast.
I will meet five snowbird friends/foodies from the midwest on the beach next week, around 60th street. We are looking for a nice, mid to higher end spot for dining that's memorable, and will leave them saying "Wow, Miami Beach is great!." Open to any cusines that can offer a choice of steak and seafood, with price per person $50-90 for app, main and dessert. We've loved Michy's on the mainland (could fall back on it if needed), and the Forge may be too pricey.
We are looking for a spot that's within 15 minutes from Collins and 30th to 60th in season's traffic, thus preferably on the Beach. They googled Morton's Steakhouse, Hakkasan, Girassoles, Shula's and others, but it's not the same a a Chowhound's recommendation!
