EDGE, located on the seventh floor of The Four Seasons Hotel, opened its doors on November 2011. It is a modern, trendsetting steakhouse, that sets its own pace to redefine what a steakhouse should be. The first thing that stood out as we walked through the restaurant to our table was the subdued yet visible lighting; not the norm for other steakhouses. A beautiful bar located in the center near the entrance, is towered by dozens of hanging lamps, providing a cozy, romantic feel. Off to the sides, elegant u-shaped couches and tables encased in their own niches, face the center dining area, where you find more tables and chairs. The decor is sophisticated but not overstated, and it all comes together in a very appealing way.

Any talk about the food at EDGE must be preceded by its passionate Executive Chef, Aaron Brooks. An Australian native, Chef Brooks is the heart and soul behind the innovative cuisine at EDGE. He has embraced the prominent Latin culture in Miami, infusing its flavors into his dishes by using familiar ingredients in bold, new ways. Another important philosophy practiced in his cooking is a farm-to-table approach, focusing on using the freshest, local products available. He believes providing customers with healthy all-natural ingredients that are sourced locally will yield the best flavors. So much so, that there is actually an herb garden on the seventh floor terrace where Chef Brooks harvests his hot peppers to use them in his culinary creations. Aside from all of Chef Brooks' expert cooking techniques, I have to say he is an incredible person, friendly and humble, that genuinely loves what he does.

We left EDGE impressed with the impeccable service we received from everyone and the outstanding culinary talents of Chef Brooks. We learned they also offer an interesting Sunday brunch; including traditional favorites embellished with a food truck flair. That's all I needed to know! You'll be seeing me again soon.
