For anyone who loves food, the months of August and September in Miami are always something to look forward to. Miami Spice is a two-month-long restaurant promotion, organized by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau’s (GMCVB) 21 years ago, initially with the goal of attracting tourists to Miami during its low season. While that’s certainly no longer a problem, the Miami Spice tradition is one locals and visitors look forward to each year.
This year, lunch/ brunch menus will be priced at $28, while dinner will go for either $45 or $60, a slight increase from last year— and for the first time, two different tiers. These prices include an appetizer, entrée and dessert. (Tax, tip, and libations are additional.) According to GMCVB, “the two different price points for dinner this year were introduced to maintain the program’s commitment to value and allow a greater variety of restaurants to participate, with a continued emphasis on flexibility and options. The difference between the two tiers reflects cost of the entrees and ingredients used. Restaurants may choose to offer one or two dinner menu option(s) so long as the menus reflect value and savings when compared to their current menu prices.”
