- Cuisines: American, Californian, Steakhouses
Star chef Govind Armstrong, who got his start at the age of 13 with Wolfgang Puck at L.A.'s legendary Spago, opened a branch of this L.A. hot spot on South Beach. Housed what was once the Regent Hotel (now owned by a chain called Vincci), Table 8 is a massive space of all things hip, groovy, swell, and sleek. With 255 seats, the restaurant consists of a main dining room, a private dining room for celebrity and VIP clientele, and a wine room. Can't score reservations? Don't fret! There's also a 40-seat lounge situated beneath the hotel's fabulous glass-bottom pool and featuring a delicious small-plate lounge menu which, in our opinion is better than the actual menu -- try the grilled cheese and then tell us what you think! Among chef Armstrong's signature dishes: a salt-roasted porterhouse steak, which the Robb Report called the best of the best in one of its coveted "best of" issues and isn't on the menu, so consider that an inside tip.
