Holy. Mother.

The Lobster and Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich is, as my mother would say, to die for.  I’m talking about the kind of thing you put in your mouth and you never forget.  If you like Thai food, you’ll love this concoction — ‘Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich’ is a misnomer.  Think a spicy thai sauce and an onion marmalade slathered on brioche with chunks of lucious, juicy Caribbean lobster in between.  Just very, very good.

Their burger is also one of the best in Miami.  The truffle oiled fries on the side were perfect.

The design of the restaurant is fashion forward, certainly Starck inspired.  Their salt and pepper grinders were a hit with the fiancee and I, and we bought the same ones at Crate and Barrel yesterday.

To start we had the smoked salmon croquettes with a spicy guava sauce and peppered cream, were very good. The lobster bisque is quite good also.

Our main entrees mushroom risotto and spice rubbed duck. Both meals really top notch.  I was also very impressed with their wine list; however I was surprised and disappointed that they do not offer a corkage fee. Most of the time we walk in with a bottle of wine, we didn’t tonight though ordered one from the wine menu.

For desert we ordered Marble Soufflé, delicious!

This place is great if you’re celebrating a special occasion, prices are steep. Dinner will easily cost you a couple of Benjamin Franklins. I suggest going to this place for special occasions.

Overall The Forge has wonderful ambiance, great wine, inventive menu, excellent food and service.

Food i give it three stars, but it gets bumped to four stars because of the service. I was so impressed by everyone here. They were so warm and friendly. VERY attentive. we wandered into the courtyard to take pictures although it was closed. they were nice enough to turn the lights on for us. I felt like royalty…well ok not really but it was pretty awesome. For a Wendesday night, I was surprised at how crowded the place was.

Tried the Miami Spice menu (3 course meal fro $35)
Appetizer: salmon croquettes were ok…kind of forgettable.
the gazpacho was refreshing but very typical

entree: had the Burger and Bordeaux: angus sirloin burger topped with boneless short rib. one of the best burgers i’ve had in awhile. perfect medium, so so juicy and packed full of flavor. the truffled fries with the pomegranate ketchup were ADDICTING. the bordeaux on the side was a nice kicker.

never a big risotto fan, but my friend’s 3 mushroom risotto was quite tasty.  she LOVED it.

wine list was pretty extensive with  a nice selection. not too pricey. honestly can’t remember what i had for dessert…was a bit tipsy by then.
