For chef Michael Mina, having fun is as simple as having a wonderful meal. That philosophy is stressed in his restaurants here and around the world, and Mina has absolutely nailed the concept at StripSteak.

Expect only the highest quality here, from the meal to the servers. You’ll be all smiles as you sample appetizers like “instant bacon,” featuring pork belly, tempura oyster and green cabbage slaw, and the fun continues with cocktails like the Gold Rush (Old Forester bourbon, honey syrup and lemon) and sangria (Grüner Veltliner, Pavan, Cointreau and peach).

Steak lovers will struggle trying to decide what to order, as Mina has packed the menu with several options, such as a ribeye, New York Strip, filet mignon and much more. But a prix fixe tasting menu makes the decision much easier. Pair a Creekstone Farms flat iron steak with a little gem Caesar salad, and finish your meal with a sweet graham cracker cookie.
