The Great of Miami Spice 2014, Part Two

Page 4 of 4

J&G Grill

Duck confit and Hamachi to start. Wagyu tri-tip and roasted poussin with house-made charcuterie to follow. Finish with the sweet stylings of Antonio Bachour. Miami Spice is a rare opportunity to eat at a Jean-Georges restaurant for the price of coat check at one of his Manhattan outposts. Check back often, as chef de cuisine Brad Kilgore isn't happy cooking the same thing for too long. Available daily for dinner.

City Hall

Plenty of options at this downtown spot decorated in a style reminiscent of Bruce Wayne's menacingly gothic Gotham City. Choose from steak tartare with a deviled egg to littleneck clams to start. Get your deal on with either the 14-oz veal chop or the strip steak. Available daily for lunch and dinner.

The Cypress Room

If you get your usual Schwartz fix at Harry's or brunch at the flagship, Miami Spice is a chance to switch over to his most refined restaurant at fraction of the price. Lunch is likely the best deal, where the usual cost of the juicy Cypress Burger brings a three-course meal with choices of stone fruit salad and smoked fish, as well as salt cod or roasted poussin. At dinner things change a bit with the addition of an oxtail terrine appetizer in addition to rabbit and porchetta as the main event. Available for lunch Monday through Friday; dinner Monday through Thursday.
