The Forge: Landmark Miami Beach Restaurant Reopens After Renovations

without comments

Popular Miami Beach restaurant the Forge, which closed in April 2009 for renovations, reopened in late March following extensive changes to its dining and event spaces. The menu has also been revamped from predominately steak house fare to a more diverse selection of seafood, meats, salads, and pasta dishes.

The main dining room has doubled in size and can seat 130 in club chairs and loveseats at each table. The back section of the dining room also has a communal table for 20 near the sommelier station and Enomatic wine system, which allows guests to try different wines by the glass from an automatic pouring machine.

The bar, now adjacent the dining room, seats 36 and offers full dinner service.

The venue also has multiple areas for private events. The 18-seat boardroom off the main dining area has floor-to-ceiling glass doors looking out toward the butler’s station, which provides guests a behind-the-scenes look at the restaurant’s service. The 40-seat library is behind the butler’s station and is decorated with walls of books, dim lighting, stained-glass wall details, leather club chairs, and small wooden tables.

For larger events, the East Room can seat 200 or hold 300 for a reception and has a separate entrance. The room has French doors opening to a courtyard, which can be used as a prefunction or separate event space, with a separate bar and room for 100 guests.

For meetings or dinner parties, the wine cellar can seat 22.
