These are the best new restaurants on Miami Spice in 2022

The suffocating August heat is upon us but we’re kind of ok with it because of Miami Spice! From August 1st through September 30th, local Miami restaurants and badass chefs will feature a 3-course meal for either lunch, brunch, or dinner at a steal of a price. At just $28 for lunch, $28 for brunch, and $42 for dinner, you can hop around Miami testing out the spots you have been craving. Additionally this year, they’ve also launched a $60 dinner menu at some restaurants. You can take inflation for that.

Every week in August and September, we will be publishing at least one guide to help you navigate and decide where to go next for Miami Spice. You should know that we’ve done your homework for you, which includes some math to make sure that you’re making the most of your time and dinero.

For this round, we are focusing on the restaurants that are joining Miami Spice for the first time in 2022. Some of these are new restaurants while others have been around for longer but chose this year, to make their Miami Spice debut. Either way, we’d go here if we were you.


Chug’s, an elevated diner with Cuban influence made for Miami with a ventanita for cafecito and a full bar, will feature a Miami Spice lunch ($28) and dinner ($45) menu. Sit at the bar or the outdoor patio area with views of Main Highway and some people-watching in Coconut Grove while you enjoy this three-course menu. 

For dinner, we’d start with the Raspitas con Lechon, Chug’s version of crispy rice topped with pork, guava bbq, and pickled onions; followed by the Pan con Bistec with mojo onions, oxtail jus for dipping, and horseradish aioli; and finish the meal with a Classic Flan or a seasonal slice of pie
