Your Guide to Miami Spice 2022

Updated: Aug 15, 2022

Miami Spice Month is in full swing, and we couldn't be happier to sample some of South Florida's most tantalizing and decadent restaurants. From now through September 30, restaurants throughout the Magic City are offering special, multi-course menus at discounted prices.

Looking to immerse yourself in an unforgettable culinary experience, from casual fare to gourmet dining? With hundreds of restaurants and cuisine options to choose from, just where do you start? Luckily, some of our Brown Harris Stevens’ Miami agents have curated a list of their favorite restaurants to help narrow down your itinerary.

Estiatorio Milo's on South Beach is Isabel Godoy's all-time favorite dinner option. The upscale Greek restaurant was recently featured in a Michelin guide of recommended restaurants in the Miami area. Its lofty, elegant atmosphere will make you feel as if you are dining at a seaside restaurant in Crete.

"The quality and presentation is outstanding, plus its exceptional service - from its host, to its servers and to valet parking - makes for a truly memorable experience. It's ideal for any occasion, whether a romantic date night or dinner with friends and family, you can't go wrong." -- Isabel Godoy

For Miami Spice, a great and shareable option is the Astako Makaronada for Two, which includes Athenian-style lobster served with linguine.

South Miami Realtor Associate Cristina Menendez recommends Orno in the heart of Coral Gables

"The venue is very chic and ultra-modern. Chief Niven and the staff have designed an ever-changing, ingredient-driven menu that will take you on a food journey like no other. The steak and homemade sides make for an unforgettable experience and the restaurant prides itself on serving the highest-quality produce available. Its generous portions sizes can easily be shared." -- Cristina Menendez

Orno's Miami Spice menu includes elevated, New American dishes like pan-roasted snapper served with squid ink bomba rice and romesco.

For authentic Italian cuisine, South Beach Agent Sonia Toth touts Doma in Wynwood as a premier option.

"What makes Doma so special is its focus on sourcing from local vendors. The restaurant is known for using only the freshest ingredients." -- Sonia Toth

Among the Miami Spice menu's highlights are its seafood selections, all of which are sourced locally. Along with classics like fried calamari, you can try Doma's signature Sweet and Spicy Salmon, which comes with english peas puree and charred baby zucchini, along with a parmesan cheese mousse, yellow tomato gel, crumbled onions, and peas aioli.
