One of the most anticipated and popular annual events, Miami Spice is returning to South Florida starting August 1st – September 30th. If you’re a Miami local and food lover then you definitely want to mark your calendars for this limited-time-only event! Whether you’re looking for a new place to check out for either a date night, girls’ night out, special occasion, or even to take your kids then Miami Spice Restaurant Months is a must to attend!
During these two months participating restaurants are having a special pre-fixed price per person for both lunch/brunch and dinner that includes three courses. Prices start at $28 for lunch/brunch and can range from $45-$60 for dinner depending on the restaurant but something to keep in mind is that tax and gratuity are not included.
This year there are over 200 well-known restaurants throughout South Florida participating in Miami Spice Restaurants Months that serve all types of cuisines from around the world. Depending on the cuisine you are in the mood for, whether it’s Italian, Japanese, seafood, Mediterranean, Peruvian, Mexican, etc. there is an extended list of restaurants to choose from!
Since Miami locals take full advantage of this special promotion, something that is always recommended is to make advanced reservations (if the restaurant accepts it) and to mention that you will be dining for the restaurant’s Miami Spice Restaurant Months meal. The best thing about Miami Spice is that it gives locals the chance to try out different restaurants including those that are upscale and more expensive without hurting their wallets. Not only is it budget friendly but it’s also a great way to get out of the house with your spouse, girlfriends, coworkers, or even your kids!
