Miami Spice 2012: The Good, The Great and The Grudging, Part Two

See also: "Miami Spice 2012: The Good"

This three-part look at Miami Spice comes just as the dining program gets set to begin on August 1. There has been a split in price categories this year, meaning there is now a "fine dining" grouping as well as a "luxury" grouping. The fine dining price point drops $2 from the prior Spice price to $19 for lunch and $33 for dinner. The "luxury" spots -- meaning most of the places you'll want to go to for Spice -- have had the price hiked $4: $23 for lunch, $39 for dinner. Both restaurant groupings are appraised separately in each good, great, and grudging list.

Yesterday, we took a look at 22 good deals. Today: 18 Spice deals handed out with what I think is a somewhat grudging attitude.
