While the days are getting shorter, the heat, humidity, and threat of hurricanes continue to linger throughout August and September. And as predictable as pit stains on a pizza delivery boy, Miami Spice Restaurant Month returns for its fifth year. If you are not familiar with this cheaper-eats program, Campo Viejo wines and the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau partner to present specially priced lunches and dinners at about 50 of our citys finest dining establishments. For just $30.06 (excluding tax and gratuities), you can indulge in an appetizer, entrée, and dessert at chic restaurants such as Blue Door at the Delano, Azul at the Mandarin Oriental, 1200 Courtyard Grill at the Biltmore, Carmen the Restaurant, Novecento, Restaurant St. Michel, Chef Allens, North One 10, China Grill, SushiSamba Dromo, Ortanique on the Mile, Talula, Pascals on Ponce, and Vix at Hotel Victor. Many of the eateries are also offering a special lunchtime deal for $20.06 (you know, before tax and tip).
