During August and September each year, Miami is a foodie’s paradise. Miami Spice is essentially Miami’s version of “restaurant month.” Hundreds of restaurants participate and offer special menus to accompany the universal deal: an appetizer, entree, and dessert will cost you $23 for brunch and $39 for dinner. The deal doesn’t include beverages and alcoholic drinks, but you can still get three-course meals for affordable prices. Since the Miami culinary scene is so expansive, choosing which restaurants to visit might be a little overwhelming. We picked out a few Miami Spice restaurants nearby to our location in South Beach at The Julia Hotel, so you don’t have to venture too far out to get the food (and the deals) that you want.
Miami Spice Restaurants
- Red, The Steakhouse – Although they don’t offer brunch for Miami Spice, for each week of the event chef Peter Vauthy creates a themed menu. So, with each return visit you’ll have new dishes to choose from. With previous offerings including flounder stuffed with crab, Certified Angus Beef petite filet mignon, and zeppoli (Italian ricotta donuts drizzled with honey and topped with powdered sugar), Red is sure to entice you back with new creations.
- Byblos – This restaurant is known as one of the best Mediterranean restaurants in Miami Beach, offering both brunch and dinner. Entrees include short rib kebabs and Middle Eastern fried chicken, with sides like grilled broccolini and hand-rolled couscous. To finish, try an exotic dessert at Byblos like loukoumades: burnt honey ice cream with halva, honey, and walnut praline.
- Stubborn Seed – This upscale American eatery has sophisticated and creative dishes by Top Chef winner Jeremy Ford. For example, try the summer fruit stracciatella as an appetizer. This prepares your stomach for sourdough-crusted Alaskan halibut with pistachio kale puree and fava beans. Grab dinner on Tuesday through Friday. Brunch on Sundays creates a place where you can eat biscuits, chai waffles, and doughnuts for just one meal. That’s a world we want to always live in.
- Pubbelly Sushi – Sushi lovers should flock to Pubbelly Sushi for many Asian dishes, where lunch is served Monday through Friday and dinner Sunday through Thursday. For lunch, don’t sleep on the spicy tuna taquitos or a protein-packed poke bowl. And for dinner, the bao buns or the Holy Tiger roll. Indulge in the sticky sweetness that is mochi for dessert.
