If Miami Spice were a little-league team, certain restaurants would receive only participation awards. Sure, they're playing the game. They're offering three-course menus and presenting them as a deal. But stronger bonuses (such as featured cocktails) and fewer letdowns (such as tilapia ceviche) are keeping these restaurants off the field and on the bench.
