The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) has announced the 11th Annual Miami Spice Restaurant Program — the wildly anticipated summer celebration in which Greater Miami restaurants offer discounted three-course lunch and dinner menus.
To make dining deals spicier, new to the program this year is a second option, which will be available simultaneously from Aug. 1 to Sept. 30, offering Miami Spice fans more diverse and wide-ranging dining options.
The expanded format of Miami Spice — presented by American Express and sponsored by Stella Artois and Bacardi rum — will consist of a two restaurant groups: Luxury Restaurants and Fine Dining Restaurants.
• Luxury Restaurants will offer three course prix-fixe lunches at $23 per person, dinners at $39.
• Fine Dining Restaurants will feature menus at $19 for lunch, $33 for dinner. All Miami Spice menus include an appetizer, entrée and dessert as part of the fixed price, which excludes tax and gratuities.
“Our 2012 revitalized Miami Spice program embraces the city’s ever-growing culinary scene,” said William D. Talbert III, CDME, president and CEO of the GMCVB. “The expanded program gives Miami diners more options and more opportunities to savor the region’s great restaurants.”
