How is it September already? With only a couple of more weeks's left of Miami Spice and 174 restaurants serving up three-course meals, you have plenty to do this week. But just in case you're craving ceviche or copious amounts of wine for $10, we've rounded up this week's best eats and drinks.
My Ceviche Delivered
Everyone's favorite fast-casual ceviche joint recently opened a location in South Miami, making it possible to get your raw fish fix without having to park in Brickell or cross the bridge. And now, My Ceviche South Miami is making raw fish even more accessible. For just $3, you can get tuna burritos delivered to your cubicle or front door, so long as you live or work near the University of Miami, Dadeland, and South Miami, obviously. Monday is looking up all of the sudden.

Tapas Tuesday at Taperia Raca
To celebrate new chef de cuisine Michelle Saavedra, formerly of Haven Gastro Lounge, Giorgio Rapicavoli's tapas joint is dedicating Tuesdays to tapas. Tapas Tuesday is not the regular daily happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. -- it means you can enjoy 50 percent off select tapas and cocktails all-night long. Think pan con tomate, charcuterie and cheese plates, and albaricoques con tocino -- Raca's version of a date.
Wine Tasting at Azur
Wine Wednesdays. That has a nice ring to it. Head over to Azur for its rendition of the mid-week wine rendezvous. Fermented grape lovers can slowly sip (or not) five different wines for just $10 from 6 to 8 p.m. Order some homemade foie gras -- pairs nicely with vino.
Fontainebleau's Chinese temple dedicated to dumplings has created fresh new Miami Spice menus for September. New items at include duck crepes, pan-seared diver scallops, and key lime pie. Over at Michael Mina 74, chef Thomas Griese is serving up crispy almond prawns with chinese pear, stir-fried shredded beef with green chili, szechuan yuisan sauce and pancakes. You deserve to start your weekend off early. And don't worry, the dumpling platter at Hakkasan is still on the spice menu.
