4 Must-Try Vegan Meals for Miami Spice
Summertime in Miami means a few different things: steamy weather, ALL THE MANGOS, and Miami Spice.
Miami Spice is a once-a-year event where eateries across the city offering special prix fixe menus so locals (and visitors) can get in on the goodies for a lower price.
Spice menus run $23 for lunch and brunch and $39 for dinner (tip, tax, and drinks not included). It runs from now through September 30th, so you've got some time to make the rounds.
Here's the best part: as soon as Spice is over, Miami's first-ever Seed Food and Wine-sponsored Plant Based Restaurant Week kicks off in October! Get excited!
In the meantime, here are four of the must-try spots offering vegan meals for Miami Spice.
Planta South Beach
This super-hip SoFi spot, spearheaded by David Grutman of LIV fame, is still really new, but it's already on the hotlist for some of the world's most major celebrities. Think Pharell Williams, Mark Wahlburg, Gronk, Vanessa Hudgens, and tons of other super famous folks. For Miami Spice this year, Planta is offering both brunch and dinner, and the mouthwatering options include pancakes, dumplings, burgers, pasta, pizza, and much more.
Nestled into Wynwood's gorgeous and aptly named Sacred Space, Plant is a bastion of rainbow-hued, deliciously creative edibles. Guests get to soak up a totally tranquil environment, and enjoy some seriously life-affirming food. This year's Spice menu is offered for lunch and dinner (depending on the day) and includes watermelon caprese, kofta curry, ginger carrot noodles and more.
This swank eatery in Miami's iconic Fontainebleau hotel serves up a modern take on Cantonese cuisine. Their unique Spice selections include a dim sum and dinner menu, with choices like bean curd lotus rolls, taro root veggie fried rice, butternut squash in sanpei sauce, and lots of other options. The special menu is vegetarian/vegan, so be sure to let your server know if you're opting out of animal products altogether!
Miami's own plant-strong gastropub and specialty elixir bar is a place where comfort food meets chill vibes. Here, you can sip on sustainable wine, craft beer -- or one of many herbal elixirs. The Spice menu is offered for brunch, lunch, and dinner depending on day, and features items like jackfruit gyoza, black bean and sweet plantain sliders, crunchy forest maki, and more.
