Now is not the time to be making bold moves. Conservative, prudent choices, yes. But big, brash maneuvers are a thing of the past.

Or not.

From the man who brought mega-eateries Buddakan and Morimoto to New York (his name is Stephen Starr) comes Ft. Lauderdale's biggest, boldest restaurant to date: Steak 954 is now taking reservations for its Thursday debut.

While we know you might be feeling steak fatigue with the plethora of beef parlors opening this year, we have a feeling you're going to want to hit A1A for a glimpse at this one…

First, let's start with its location—inside the splashy new W hotel, a chain not known for restraint. Step inside and you'll immediately be struck by the size—more than 200 seats, plus an outdoor garden. In other words, plenty of room to entertain a group of discerning dry-aged aficionados… or just one high-heeled aficionado who doesn't mind a little road trip.

Start off at the beautiful stainless steel bar with a cocktail made from the freshest organic juices. When you're ready to get serious, proceed to one of the lime green leather banquettes near the 15-foot jellyfish tank—an appropriately jaw-dropping backdrop for your foie gras tacos, tempura onion rings and, yes, Kobe cheesesteak.

You took it as far as you could, Philly…
