Five Miami Meal Deals Better Than Miami Spice
Pasta Thursday is a thing at Macchialina.
Two words locals have heard since August 1 is "Miami Spice." Every other tweet or Instagram photo has been dedicated to the two-month dining promotion. Though September 30, more than 200 Miami restaurants showcase prix fixes that run $23 for lunch and $39 for dinner.
Of course, some Miami eateries have decided to go rogue, creating other meal incentives that can be an even better value than Spice. Offering specials ranging from $10 pasta to all-you-can-eat lobster, here are the five top places that have other, enjoyable deals for the rest of the summer.
Momi Oyster Bar
5. Momi Oyster Bar
After closing last fall, the Brickell corner eatery has been officially revived. "We decided to reopen as we felt the area was lacking a true raw bar and fresh seafood," says managing partner Jeffrey Chen. Momi is back with an all-you-can-eat-lobster deal. For $59 all day, every day, dive into endless amounts of the seasonal crustaceans.
This special might be old news to some, but it's too impressive not to include. Pastas at Macchialina normally start at $21. But on Thursdays, bust out a Hamilton and those stretchy pants to indulge in some magical carbs. For only $10, this iconic Italian eatery serves some of the best pasta in town. Each week, chef Mike Pirolo serves six from the regular menu and adds four specials that night. Selections range from beet pasta topped with hazelnuts, brown butter, and ricotta salata to a simple and stunning spaghetti pomodoro.
