LT Steak & Seafood / The Alley

Located on-site at the Betsy Hotel, LT Steak & Seafood and The Alley are dog-friendly Miami restaurants that welcome your pups to their outdoor terraces. With both menus curated by Chef Laurent Tourondel, LT Steak & Seafood is a casual yet elegant New American restaurant focusing on fusing international flavors and techniques, while The Alley is a modern trattoria serving Neapolitan-style pizza, homemade pasta, charcuterie, salads, and more. These dog-friendly Miami restaurants are a must-try—even better, they’re on-site at The Betsy!
