Miami Spice Survival Guide. The two-month promotion kicked off nearly two weeks ago, with prix-fixe menus for some of the area's best restaurants at the reduced price of $23 for lunch and brunch, and $39 for dinner. The Miami Spice program was created 17 years ago by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau as a way to promote area restaurants to visitors and locals during the city's hotter and slower months. Since its inception, the promotion has grown from 40 participating restaurants to more than 240 and counting. With all those eateries, it can be daunting to find the perfect place to start your Spice journey. Don't fret — just use this handy survival guide for the best places to dine.
