It’s been a long time coming, but Soul Tavern is finally open. The Miami Beach meat-free gastropub was set to open in late 2016, but permitting and other city headaches pushed the date back to this summer. Thankfully, diners no longer have to wait for their fix of flavorful vegan and vegetarian cuisine. Variety is the spice of life, and as you’ll quickly see, Soul Tavern’s menu has a lot of it.
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.
Like we’ve mentioned in earlier posts, hotels make Miami Spice dining so easy. Everything’s in one spot, so it’s relatively effortless to spend a day stuffing your face with delicious deals. At Fontainebleau Miami Beach, almost every restaurant on-site is taking part in the two-month promotion. Last week, we had a chance to dine around the property. Here are the highlights.
With Miami Spice well underway and over 200 restaurants to visit, there’s a lot of eating to do. Focusing your sights on hotels makes it easier (and faster) to start dwindling that list down — you have a bunch of restaurants all in one spot, so you can spend a day dining out and enjoying Miami Spice selections. Case in point: The Confidante.
A lot has changed since our last visit to Essensia. Former Executive Chef Venoy Rogers has moved on, and Executive Chef Julie Frans is now leading the kitchen. Chef Frans is no stranger to the restaurant at The Palms Hotel & Spa: She’s back at the helm after taking a two-year break that included plenty of travel around the globe. What you see on the seasonal menu is inspired by these journeys.
