So. My fiance, parents, brother, brother's girlfriend, and Aunt are all going to be in Miami for one night only. We are all out-of-towners.
Dad wants to be in South Beach. I believe he wants to Check Out The Scene.
Mom wants to be in South Beach. She likes anything sleek metropolitan feeling.
Fiance wants a good beer, and is allergic to seafood. He prefers vegetables, but eats meat.
Brother has only ever been witnessed eating steak. Very picky eater, weird vegetables will be poked with disdain. Fancy-schmancy makes him roll his eyes.
Brother's girlfriend is not 21, but is the least picky of the group. God bless you.
Aunt is a laid-back casual artist type (and only actual Floridian in the group). She will likely arrive dressed as such.
I would like this crazy awesome 7-person (8? Aunt's boyfriend will join if he's not out-of-town for work) dinner to be at or under 30$ pp (before drinks/tax/tip). Distant second to that I am a foodie, and prefer veg/meat to grains/pasta.
God Help Us.
Basically we're looking for "as nice/hip as possible without being "nice" "hip" or charging for either. please serve booze and beef and be in south beach."
So far all I've got is Joe's Stone Crab or Meat Market. Will either of those work? Will anything work?
