The ‘Miami Spice’ restaurant promotion ends this weekend, but we’ve found other offers that won’t go away
Miami’s citywide restaurant promotional offer, Miami Spice, was first adapted in June to help the struggling restaurant industry. Like many ârestaurant weeks or monthsâ in town, three-course meals at top restaurants are offered at a reasonable price – just $ 25 for lunch / brunch and $ 39 for dinner.
Normally, the purpose of these month-long deals is pretty straightforward: to provide value and motivate people to explore places they otherwise wouldn’t have.
But this year, given the pandemic and all the challenges restaurants have faced, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau has decided to extend the offer for several months, first until the end of September and then to new until the end of October. In this case, it was less about offering people the option to dine above their pay grade, and more about encouraging them to dine out at all.
Currently, the offer expires this weekend at the end of October, which means you only have a few days left to take advantage of it. To find participating restaurants, use this neighborhood breakdown. If you are not comfortable dining at the restaurant, you can have the offer delivered to your doorstep with Take away spice.
If you can’t pick it up on time, don’t worry, there are still a few other great value deals around Miami. Below are some favorites.
Located along Lincoln Street in Miami Beach, this rooftop restaurant is named after a Brazilian walnut tree and combines French, Asian and Peruvian influences. His dinner menu offers interesting fusions such as raw hamachi with Peruvian huacatay (black mint sauce), carretillero ceviche with crispy squid and red onions, avocado salmon tartare and Chilean sea bass with bok choy and brown shimeji mushrooms.
The setting is an outdoor rooftop dining area, with vertical gardens and a lively atmosphere, often courtesy of live DJ sets. The best aspect of its location is its perch atop a corner building, offering a beautiful, wide view of South Beach.
Juvia competed in Miami Spice from June to September, and going forward she has her own similar offering at a great time of day – the perfect time to take in the great views. His Dinner at sunset takes place Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., offering a 3-course meal, including a glass of Syltbar Prosecco, for $ 45.
Sugar / Quinto la Huella
Right in downtown Miami is the Eastern Hotel, which is home to two establishments that form an interesting combo on a night out.
On the roof is Sugar, one of the nicest sunset lounges in all of Miami thanks, in part, to its design as an open-air âsecret gardenâ. Located on the 40th floor of the East Hotel, its views stretch all the way to Miami Beach, and the decor is focused on greenery – potted plants, saplings, and beautiful flower boxes. The landscaped seating areas provide natural privacy and it all surrounds a Hong Kong-inspired wooden bar. Asian inspired small plates, sushi and cocktails go well in this relaxed and fresh setting. Be sure to make a reservation that begins at least half an hour before sunset to take full advantage of the changing light and colorful sky.
Once the stars are out, go to the ground floor of the hotel to dine inside and out. Quinto la Huella, a Uruguayan-influenced restaurant specializing in grilled meats and seafood, using an authentic South American open fire parrilla and wood-burning oven for most of its cooking. Try the pulpo a la plancha (grilled octopus), a selection of local fish of the day or any number of their cuts of meat, all prepared âa la parrillaâ. They also specialize in wood-fired pizza.
Quinto la Huella offers you a Offer Sundays in Quinto, a three-course meal for $ 49 per person. If you’ve never professionally cooked meat on a parrilla before, this is a great way to experience it for a good price.
This local Italian joint in South Beach had to get creative during the pandemic. Normally a small, dimly lit restaurant with little seating, Macchialina expanded this summer and took over what was once the courtyard of the adjacent hostel. Ultimately, while sitting outside vacant hotel rooms seems odd at first, the new space works well with a garden feel and wall art stains.
In addition, it still offers one of the best deals on the market: Pasta Thursday, where any pasta dish costs $ 10. The pasta is homemade and usually costs between $ 20 and $ 30 a plate, and while the serving size for the special dish is significantly smaller, it’s still a very reasonable amount for a meal.
As this deal is understandably popular, reservations are required on Pasta Thursday, so be sure to grab one. via the website.
