Miami Spice is officially upon us. For foodies across Miami, the concept of three-course meals at the city's finest eateries (at prices mere mortals can afford) is worth waiting ten months for.

For the meatless among us, however, it can feel a little lonely. But the landscape is getting better for herbivores all the time, and this year's Miami Spice selections are no exception. There are plenty of places to get veg-friendly options, from Seasons 52 to Macchialina and more.

Oh, and the new Miami Spice website makes it way easier to find the meatless meal options. Now, you can search by cuisine type, including vegetarian/vegan. But, be sure to double check -- as herbivores know all too well, it's important to ask questions. This year, all three-course lunches run $23 and all dinners, $39.

Macchialina

The Italian eatery has some mouth-watering meatless options, including broccolini with al cesare with toasted garlic and parmigiano, escarole salad with preserved lemon and pecorino and tagliolini al funghi with abalone mushrooms. Available for dinner only.

Red the Steakhouse

Red is featuring lacto-ovo and pescetarian options, and they always offer up a pasta primavera for meatless eaters. Available for dinner only.

Haven South Beach

At this sleek SoBe spot, enjoy a vegan roll (daikon pickle, red bell pepper, pea shoots, cucumber, and avocado butter), a crispy avocado and miso tofu puree with spicy cucumber and carrot salad, or one of several other meatless concoctions. Available for dinner only.

Seasons 52

This Gables locale has extensive, separate menus available for vegetarians and vegans. Options on the vegetarian side include tomato soup with basil pesto and Parmesan cheese straw, Sonoma goat cheese ravioli, tacos with black beans, roasted peppers, feta cheese, mole poblano, and tomatillo salsa -- and plenty of other selections. For vegans, options include warm roasted olives, quinoa-citrus salad, cedar plank roasted tofu and more. Available for lunch and dinner.

 

Sawa Restaurant & Lounge

Herbivores can dig into burrata salad with heirloom tomatoes, kalamata olives, arugula, and balsamic vinaigrette; hummus, babaganoush, stuffed grape leaves, tabouli, and warm pita, and creme brulee, among other selections. Available for lunch and dinner.

The Federal Food Drink & Provisions

This veg-friendly eatery is offering options including their famous jumbo biskit with

avocado mousse and chunks, charred oranges, puffed and micro amaranth, and breakfast radish, among other meatless dishes. Available for dinner only.

Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar & Latam Grill

While this Grove eatery is known for seafood, they're offer up a platter chock full of stir fried veggies and rice. Available for lunch and dinner.

Casabe 305 Bistro

Their meatless selections include (among other options) fruit ceviche with ají amarillo, coconut milk veggie curry with Jasmine brown rice and asparagus, and "Manjar" de Guanábana with a tempranillo reduction and mixed berries. Available for dinner only.

Tuyo

The crown jewel of the Miami Culinary Institute, the chefs in this rooftop kitchen will whip up a rastafari vegan stew for herbivorous visitors. Available for dinner only.

With a lot of restaurants, substitutes are available upon request, so even if your fave places aren't on this list -- it's worth calling directly to see if they can make you a veg option.

Happy Spice!
