Palm trees and great water views are usually part of the backdrop in Miami. During Miami Spice month, you can enjoy a few favorite places for soaking up outdoor living, all while dining on signature dishes created by world-renowned chefs at reduced prices: lunch is $23 and dinner is $39.
• Gibraltar at Grove Isle Hotel and Spa: Enjoy stunning views of Biscayne Bay in an atmosphere that is romantic, secluded and private. Sit back, watch the sun set over the bay and savor pan-fried snapper served with ginger butternut squash and lotus chips.
• Restaurant Michael Schwartz: From the shape of the pool to the terrazzo floors, this hotel has the cool glamorous deco Miami vibe. Sit at the poolside restaurant, which is located just a short walk away from the beach and order up plates of food with locally sourced fresh ingredients perfect for eating in the sun.
• Smith and Wollensky: Adjacent to one of Miami Beach's prettiest parks, South Pointe Park. Best dining views are upstairs on the patio deck, and the outside patio bar is another hot spot not to miss.
