It’s time to take advantage of Miami Spice

For the 18th year (!), Miami Spice—a Greater Miami and the Beaches two-month special—returns to tempt your tastebuds and pocketbooks. Now’s the time to try dishes at Miami’s best restaurants and stay within your budget at the same time.

Throughout August and September, Miami Spice includes more than 250 restaurants offering three-course prix-fixe lunches and brunches for $23 and dinners for $39. The venues are grouped by neighborhood (a new website upgrade this year) that include the Airport Area, Aventura, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Doral, Downtown Miami, Kendall, Key Biscayne, Little Haiti, Little Havana, Miami Beach–Mid Beach, North Beach, South Beach, Miami Design District, Miami Lakes, North Bay Village—and you get the picture. Many more ‘hoods included, right down to Wynwood.

To give you an idea of the extensive options, Coral Gables has 30 restaurants participating, Downtown Miami has 52, all of Miami Beach has 85 joining in, with all kinds of cuisine represented.

Now’s the time to eat out, to eat at a restaurant you’ve been thinking about forever (get a gang of friends together and carpool!), and traffic isn’t bad in the off-season, either. No excuses!
