Blog: Five Amazing Restaurants near Brickell Flatiron That Are Part of Miami Spice
August through September is a fine time to be in Miami, especially if you have a condo here. Though it might be “low season” for some, the late summer/early fall offers the perfect chance for locals to explore their city and discover some tempting deals. Miami Spice, which runs from August through September, is a must-do for foodies living in Miami; for these two months, the best restaurants in town offer three-course menus at exceptionally good prices. Many of the eateries are close to Brickell Flatiron too. Here are five of the best.
Zuma Miami | 270 Biscayne Boulevard Way
Bringing the informal Japanese style of “izakaya” dining to Miami, Zuma is the ideal setting for getting together a group of friends or condo neighbors around the table—to share and indulge in a jewel box of Japanese treats. Catch up on each other's Miami lives, while sampling yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno, salmon teriyaki, and robata-grilled beef short ribs. Keep the conversation flowing over a shared miso caramel cake and a sake pairing.
EDGE Steak & Bar | Four Seasons Hotel Miami, 1435 Brickell Avenue
EDGE specializes in contemporary American menus, and for Miami Spice, it's offering diners the likes of seafood arancini (with saffron tartar sauce), prime flat-iron steak, sourced from Creekstone Farms, and a key lime panna cotta to finish. The swish art-deco backdrop of this farm-to-table steakhouse seals the deal. You will be back.
La Mar by Gaston Acurio | Mandarin Oriental, Miami, 500 Brickell Key Drive
Gaston Acurio has become a celebrity in the culinary world, thanks to his honest, yet exciting, take on Peruvian cuisine. Miami Spice diners can choose from a lunch or an evening menu; the former tantalizes with aji de gallina: a classic Peruvian dish made with chicken, pecans, aji Amarillo, and potato. At the latter sitting, tuck into a pepper stuffed with tender beef stew, grilled cheese, and pastel de papa.
La Petite Maison | 1300 Brickell Bay Drive
French and Nicoise dishes, made with great skill and delicacy, are the order of the day at La Petite Maison—and it's the kind of fare that complements sunny views of the Bay. The salt-baked fillet of redfish, accompanied by tomatoes and artichokes, comes highly recommended, as does the caramelized brioche with spicy ice cream, for the final dining touch. Bien!
Katsuya Brickell |8 SE 8th Street
Popcorn rock shrimp, miso-glazed black cod, tuna tartare, and mochi ice cream are just some of the dishes that pop off the page of Katsuya's Miami Spice menu. Chef Katsuya Uechi takes the concept of sushi and magics it into things you never dreamed could taste so divine. An excellent option for a romantic date, on a night when you don't fancy cooking in your condo.
One (or more! or many!) of these luxury Miami Spice meals is certain to be worth the trip from your luxury Miami condo at Brickell Flatiron.
