Maison Carlos originally opened in 2002 on Clematis Street and seven years later was moved to the Eld Cid neighborhood, craving a more community setting.

Customers rave that Maison Carlos’ food is consistently delicious, and the service is superb. Favorite menu items include rustic asparagus Milanese, truffled lobster mac and cheese, and soufflé de fromage. The atmosphere is light and inviting, as well as quiet and sophisticated, perfect for a date night.
Okeechobee Steakhouse is a family-owned restaurant that opened in 1947. They pride themselves in developing their own exclusive process for aging beef, a family secret that will never be shared with the public. Steaks are also hand-trimmed to reduce the amount of fat to as minimum as possible, and portion sizes are generous. Most of the waiters are extremely knowledgeable about steak, going so far as to present each cut of meat to patrons and share the features of each before they are cooked to perfection. Many visitors even go so far as to argue that Okeechobee Steakhouse’s steaks are tastier than those at more corporate steakhouses.
