Miami Spice Monday: BLT Prime

By Mitchell Nover

What’s in a name? Unfortunately for BLT Prime (4400 NW 87th Ave, Doral) it means an affiliation with a certain President of the United States thanks to its location inside the &@%!# National Doral Miami hotel. Despite the name on the outside of the building, however, nothing comes between me and a good meal. So based on Mel’s recommendation from last year, I ventured into enemy territory to give it a try.

The Return of #MiamiSpiceMonday with BLT Prime

By: Melanie Galarce

It’s August 1st, and that means the official start of the ever-popular culinary program: Miami Spice. For those of you who have recently settled into Miami as home, Miami Spice is sort of like the Mecca for foodies in the 305. The concept is simple; some of the most established restaurants in Miami offer pre-set lunch and dinner menus giving you a sneak peek into establishments that may have otherwise been out of your reach. Mitch and I love everything about Miami Spice, and the opportunity it lends foodies to discover our city. As such, MMTM is bringing back our summer series, #MiamiSpiceMonday. Every Monday from now until the end of September (to coincide with the end of the program,) we will share a Miami Spice experience in hopes that it will help you navigate the culinary tour de force that takes over our city.
