Miami Spice at Palme d’Or: A Quality Experience

When it comes to food, we usually opt for casual cuisine over fine dining. But when we do have the hankering for fancy fare, we go all out. Miami Spice makes it easy to do so: Restaurants that would typically be out of our price range are suddenly affordable. One of those restaurants is Palme d’Or at the Biltmore.

The AAA Five Diamond restaurant is fine dining at its finest, so the $39 Spice offerings are a phenomenal value. And when you factor in the impeccable service and beautiful, vibrant dishes, Palme d’Or is a Miami Spice must.

The Local Craft Food & Drink: Weekend Brunch Done Right

Coral Gables is undergoing a transformation. Since last year, the Gables Streetscape construction project has been turning two of the city’s main arteries — Miracle Mile and Giralda Avenue — into more pedestrian-friendly destinations. Local restaurants would ultimately benefit from expanded outdoor dining space and other improvements meant to attract customers.

Unfortunately, the process has been anything but smooth for Giralda Avenue. Because of numerous delays, the usually busy strip was an active construction site (and an eyesore) for months after its scheduled completion date; the place was a ghost town. As a result, several businesses shuttered and others hung on — and continue to hang on — by a thread. Thankfully, construction is just about complete and a grand opening celebration is planned for mid-September.

We’re celebrating for another reason, though: It’s no longer a mission to get to The Local Craft Food & Drink for their awesome brunch.

Miami Spice at Katsuya: An Exceptional Value

When we search for good Miami Spice deals, we look at several factors. For us, value and variety are two of the most important things (besides taste, of course). Katsuya’s Miami Spice menu checks off all these boxes. Not only do you get four dishes instead of the usual three, but you get a handful of options for each course. Plus, the Spice menu costs you a portion of what the a la carte price would be.

This is why we can’t recommend Katsuya enough.
