If there’s one word to describe Boulud Sud, it’s consistent. We’ve been to the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant several times since its opening, and it’s consistently delicious. This year’s Miami Spice lunch menu maintains that trend: Diverse, tasty creations are in store for anyone who comes in to try the special two-month menu by Chef Clark Bowen.
When we hear the words “Ocean Drive,” one thing comes to mind: tourist traps. High-quality, reasonably priced food is not something we typically associate with the Miami Beach street. Except for one BIG exception: LT Steak & Seafood at the Betsy Hotel.
LT Steak & Seafood — which wowed us back in April — is serving up an assortment of new dishes for Miami Spice along with some old favorites. It’s a Miami Spice must.
For budget-conscious diners, Miami Spice lunches are the way to go: You can enjoy three menu selections for $23. That’s a heck of a savings, especially when it comes to upscale establishments like Novikov. The Downtown Miami restaurant’s Asian cuisine can get pricey, but thanks to Miami Spice, foodies of all budgets can indulge in some awesome dumplings and rolls for lunch.
The beauty of Miami Spice is that you can check out restaurants that would normally be out of your budget. Case in point: Cantina La Veinte, which is known for its flavorful Mexican cuisine by Chef Santiago Gomez. It’s not a place we can afford to visit regularly — it’s more of a special occasion spot for us — but it’s a place we wish we could eat at more often. The food is sensational.
Thankfully, Cantina La Veinte is participating in Miami Spice, so we can afford to eat there regularly (at least until September 30). And you better believe we will, as the restaurant is fully embracing the promotion by highlighting some exceptional fare. Best of all, you can indulge for lunch AND dinner.
With over 200 restaurants to choose from, Miami Spice can be daunting for diners. Figuring out which restaurants are worth your money is a mission; there are just so many menus to review. We’ll make your decision easy: Run — don’t walk — to Fooq’s for Miami Spice.
