We may be the southernmost foreclosure capital in the country but that doesn't mean foodies have to resort to Spam and caviar just yet. To beat the banking blues, several of the city's swankiest eateries have issued their own version of a pricing detente. To wit:
The China Grill Empire: Blue Door and Asia de Cuba have agreed to extend their Miami Spice prix fixe menus through Halloween while China Grill and Kobe Club will offer the $35 three-course dinners and $22 three-course lunches through November 30.
Hot off her Top Chef guest judge appearance, chef Michelle Bernstein offers a $22 lunchtime (M-F noon-3 p.m.) prix fixe menu of two small plates, one large plate and one dessert at SRA. Martinez called Bueno, Bonito Y Barato. Translation? "Good, Pretty and Cheap."
On Wednesdays at Talula, Buon Appetito features a bottomless bowl of rigatoni with chef/owner Andrea Curto-Randazzo's special Sunday Sauce along with meatballs, salad, garlic rolls and espresso panna cotta for $29 per person.
