SONNY’S SOMEDAY STEAKHOUSE BY JAGUAR SUN


Address: 7357 NW Miami Ct, Miami, FL 33150
Neighborhood: Little River
Cuisine: American
Hours: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 5 PM – 10 PM
Details: Lot 6 in Little River has been home to Jaguar Sun for a while now. It’s one of our favorite outdoor dining experiences and it recently transformed into Sonny’s Someday Steakhouse. The menu covers steakhouse classics (with a Jaguar Sun twist) like the shrimp cocktail with the best cocktail sauce you’ve ever tried. The sauce is a mix of Worcestershire sauce, lemon, fresh tomato sauce, ancho purée, and horseradish. If you ever went to the Downtown Jaguar Sun, you’ll be happy to know that they’re bringing their buttery Parker House rolls to Lot 6.  They’ve got the meats with their 70-Day NY Strip, aged Duroc Pork Chop, and Scotch-aged Tomahawk Ribeye. Don’t miss the wagyu beef tartare, the whole yellowtail snapper and ALL the sauces for your steak and fish. The most interesting award goes to the pineapple habanero hot sauce. The food here is incendiary and we’ll never stop talking about it.
