How Gatsby's Joint Came to Be

“Chef” Steve Shtivelman, was formerly in finance and worked on Wall Street for more than 10 years. Having a passion for food and loving to cook for others, Steve left Wall Street for the warmer climate of South Florida 3 years ago in search of his dream…to open a restaurant. Prior to opening Gatsby’s Joint, Steve did special event catering and has been offering specialty tastings including Caviar, smoked fish and meats, truffles and cheeses throughout South Florida for the past few years. Having started with an online business, Caviar Exclusive, Steve has catered events for 50 to 1200 people and supervised 5-9 chefs. Steve loves big, bold flavors with simplistic ingredients.

Tucked away as a hidden gem in North Fort Lauderdale, Gatsby’s Joint is a 1920’s-inspired restaurant that combines a relaxing atmosphere with intimate vibes. A homage to the lost generation and subtle rebellion of the era, Gatsby’s Joint entices the senses through its modern cuisine, bespoke cocktails and live entertainment. The vision and mission of this establishment offers an immersive experience that wows our guests.
