Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

The universe has but a few immutable laws. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Gravity does, in fact, suck. Politicians always lie. And a new steakhouse will open somewhere in Miami.

The latest meatery making its debut is 5300 Chop House at The Blue, an upscale golf resort in Doral. Oh, yes, there will be meat. Harris Ranch Black Angus beef, Kurobuta pork, Tanglewood Farms chicken, Oregon spring lamb, a veritable feast of beast. For those of you with less carnivorous cravings there's cedar-roasted Alaskan king salmon with saffron-leek bisque and grilled tuna with ponzu nage (which, if you must ask, is a fancy French word for broth). Entrée prices run from $25 to $45, and if you want sides, they're $6 extra.

Doing the cheffing duties is John Wahler, who comes from Jean-George Vongerichten's Spice Market in NYC and Nobu's in Los Angeles and South Beach but probably more important to celebrity-obsessed local consumers of food porn, a stint on Gordon ("Wake up, move your ass or piss off home") Ramsey's Hell's Kitchen.

Yes, chef. I'm moving, I'm moving. . .

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
