Miami is a coastal town, which means meals call for a taste of the ocean. The freshest seafood can be pricey, which is why Miami Spice is the perfect time to indulge in shucked oysters, plump crab, and succulent shrimp. The promotion offers $23 lunch and $39 three-course dinner menus (tax, tip, and drinks are not included) at more than 200 participating eateries.

These five restaurants are known for offering fresh, high-quality fruits of the sea, such as salmon, sushi, lobster, oysters, and jumbo shrimp. Try them before Miami Spice ends September 30.
