        +1 scarpetta
        Bourbon steak
        Hakkasan lunch (weekend only: an incredible deal)

        Didn't do Palme d'or last year but will try to this year

        Surprised to see timo not participating (good lunch experiences there in past spices)

        Miami Beach, FL, Miami Beach, FL

      2. New Times gave this a little more thought than the current responses (mine included):

        The upshot: New Times gives its top marks to 4 places:
        1500 at Eden Roc (never been/never heard of
        )Scarpetta (i concur)
        SushiSamba Dromo (meh); and
        Tudor House (who?)

        Related story here (interesting facts: restaurants now charged a GRAND to participate!):

        1. My list would include Azul, Bourbon Steak, Michael's Genuine, Michy's, Meat Market, Scarpetta.

          I was a little more expansive in my thoughts here ->

          Note that the four "great" Spice menus in the New Times piece was just for South Beach - they have more posts on Gables/Grove, Midtown/Design District ...

            Sra. Martinez must also be in consideration as she is offering her mighty Garbanzo Beans dish.

              Also a nice way to do the menus with 3 tapas (+ dessert) per person. Can put together a pretty good spread between even just a couple people if you mix it up.

          2. Kane Steakhouse seems like a great deal.. Should be mentioned. The newcomer on the trendy steak scene in the old Tuscan and El Scorpion (shortly lived) spot. Normally their Filet alone runs more than the whole spice price and you get a salad or app, side and desert. I'm trying it.

            1. Going to throw BLT Steak into the mix. They change it up every couple of weeks, at least in years past, plus meal comes with the insane popovers and chicken liver spread.

                Good point. Popovers and spread alone make it worthwhile.
