One of the most anticipated South Florida events, Miami Spice is back! This two-month foodie event taking place August 1 – September 30 encourages locals and visitors alike to visit some of South Florida’s best restaurants to enjoy special lunch and dinner menus. Participating restaurants offer three-course meals featuring signature dishes created by world-renowned chefs at reduced prices: Lunch/Brunch $23 and Dinner $39. These menus sometimes offer exciting new dishes not on the regular menu, and chefs often switch up the menu over the two-month campaign. Reservations are recommended, and be sure to check if the Spice menu is available on the day you plan to visit as availability differs at the discretion of the restaurant.
ONE Sotheby’s International Realty brokers and clients enjoy taking advantage of the promotion to try new places, or dine at established favorites, so we have put together a list of our top choices by neighborhood. Bon appetite!
