August Sizzles with Miami SpiceNow in its 14th year, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) kicked-off its highly anticipated Miami Spice Restaurant program, bringing local and visiting foodies exclusive dining discounts for a limited time. From August 1 – September 30, nearly 200 local restaurants, including 53 new establishments will offer three-course meals priced at $23 for lunch and $39 for dinner. The reduced pricing does not include tax and gratuity.
On July 30, Miami Spice launched with the Miami New Times Iron Fork Miami Spice Kickoff, an annual culinary competition and grand tasting, drawing local celebrity chefs as well as epicureans. Hosted by Chef Allen Susser, the two-part event took place at the Hyatt Regency Miami. Dozens of restaurants including Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce Members like Tantalize, Tongue & Cheek, Naked Taco, Fratelli La Bufala, Midtown Oyster Bar, and many others participated in the event.
Residents and guests can visit the GMCVB’s dedicated website — www.iLoveMiamiSpice.com — which serves as a one-stop shop for additional information on the various dining experiences by neighborhood, restaurant menus and participating days, culinary events and more.
Additionally, the GMCVB has partnered with OpenTable, a leading online restaurant reservation site, throughout the months of August and September to promote Miami Spice and the participating restaurants in Greater Miami and the Beaches.
With Miami Spice coinciding with Miami Spa Month in August, summer savings are twice as nice. Miami Spa Month runs from July 1 – August 30 providing spa goers with discounted treatments available at price points of $99 and $129. With 35 world-renowned participating spas, both guests and residents can enjoy rejuvenating treatments – like deep-tissue massages and exfoliating body polishes – at up to 50% savings.
“Greater Miami and the Beaches continues to evolve its culinary offerings during the 14th year of the GMCVB’s Miami Spice program with an exceptional array of sumptuous new and signature dining experiences,” said William D. Talbert III, CDME, President and CEO of the GMCVB. “Savory and eclectic dishes are created by world-renowned chefs, affording locals and visitors a taste of Miami’s extraordinarily diverse culinary scene. We are thrilled with the excitement and exploration generated by Miami Spice.”
