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.

Happy Friday, foodie friends! Did you enjoy our Instagram takeover last night with Chef Spike Mendelsohn at Iron Fork Miami? Huge kudos to Chef Spike for being such an awesome foodie and joining forces with us for all the behind-the-scenes footage. Now that Iron Fork is under our belt, you know what that means? Miami Spice officially kicks off this Sunday and we can’t wait to start sharing all the delicious foodie spots that we’re totally digging this year. We hope to have new places to share and old favorites to tell you about again.

Foodie Friday

It’s Friday and the weekend looms near. July is nearly coming to an end which only means that August is right around the corner, and August means a Miami Spice invasion in our beloved city. We’ve been previewing restaurant offerings this week, which is part of the reason why we’re already salivating at the thought of this year’s Miami Spice menus. We’re planning a nice little preview ourselves for our next Foodie Friday – Local Edition, but in the meantime enjoy our Friday link pack of fun food finds from around the Web. Enjoy!

#MiamiSpiceMonday – Alter

This edition of #MiamiSpiceMonday is a special one. It’s not only our last Miami Spice review since the season comes to an end, but we’ll also be sharing a lunch experience rather than the dinner journeys we’ve been telling you about for the last two months.

This review takes us to heart of Wynwood and a 65-seat restaurant by the audacious name of Alter. It’s the brainchild of Chef Brad Kilgore, who sports an impressive resume that includes gigs at J&G Grill at Bal Harbour and Azul.

#MiamiSpiceMonday – The Restaurant at the Setai

When we heard late last week that executive chef of The Restaurant at the Setai and recent Chopped champion, Mathias Gervais, had announced Jaya, a new pan-Asian restaurant concept coming to the Setai this fall, things started to finally make sense. I say this because when I ventured over to The Setai to check out The Restaurant’s Miami Spice menu, the Asian-inspired offerings had no relation whatsoever to regular menu, considering it is described as featuring “various cuisines and traditional flavors of Europe’s ‘Sun Coast,’ inclusive of the Mediterranean regions of Spain, Italy, the South of France and Provence.”

#MiamiSpiceMonday – The River Oyster Bar

Happy #MiamiSpiceMonday! After taking last week off for Labor Day, we’re back to share another Miami Spice experience to help you in your decision making during these last couple weeks of Miami Spice.

This week we’re visiting The River Oyster Bar, a Miami mainstay that has proven to be a survivor amidst the current craziness that is the Brickell City Center development. Through almost three years of intensive construction, street closures, and landscape altering conditions, The River Oyster Bar has stood its ground continuing to serve loyal patrons 7-days a week, and, yes, that includes their Miami Spice menu.

#MiamiSpiceMonday – Swine Southern Table & Bar

On this edition of #MiamiSpiceMonday, we conquer the South. Soulful Southern cuisine is synonymous with comfort and indulgence. Vivid images of fried chicken and mashed potatoes come to mind. I’ve always enjoyed the splurge of eating anything fried and not having to feel apologetic about it and as so, Southern food holds a special place in my heart. This Southern menu’s scene? Swine Southern Table & Bar, a self-proclaimed “house of worship to the porcine pursuit.” The simple and uncomplicated nature of Southern cuisine makes for a great gathering of friends and family over food; Swine offers just that. Providing a laid-back and soul-healing ambience in a two-floor space in Coral Gables that has traces of fancy lighting and décor but at its core remains comfy and cool.

#MiamiSpiceMonday – Kebo

One of the best things about the Miami Spice program is that it gives diners a reason to explore some of the city’s culinary offerings that they may not choose under normal circumstances. Some people lean towards high-end restaurants that regularly seem out of reach, some go for new restaurants just joining the local food scene, some try cuisines that are out of there comfort zone, and some are intrigued by the restaurants they’ve never heard of.

The hope with this series is to highlight some of the Miami Spice menus that we’re enjoying during Miami’s most gluttonous months when the promotion takes over our growing culinary city. And, of course, that you enjoy it along the way!
