With just a few weeks left of Miami Spice, it's time to up the game and get in as many restaurants as you can. The program, which lasts until the end of September, features more than 240 local restaurants offering three-course lunches for $23 and three-course dinners for $39.

That's a great opportunity to try a new restaurant or take advantage of a date night at an establishment that normally is out of your budget. 

New Times has covered Miami Spice extensively so far this year, from offering the best new restaurants to try to breaking down values by neighborhood. Here's a rundown of our favorites so you can make the best of Miami Spice.

From Matthew Kenney’s Wynwood plant-based palace to Danny Serfer's Blue Collar and Mignonette, here are the best places to enjoy a meatless Spice menu.

3. The Six Best Miami Spice 2016 Deals in South Beach
It's a truth — once you move off the Beach, it takes nothing short of a miracle to get you to drive over the causeway. Sure, South Beach has traffic that's unbearable and tourists that resemble boiled lobsters, but there are also some amazing restaurants. Consider Miami Spice your annual miracle — after all, the prospect of a three-course dinner for $39 in SoBe is akin to parting the Red Sea. Rekindle your love affair with Pubbelly or chomp down on steak at Quality Meats. Then work off your meal with a stroll on the sand.
