Bourbon Steak Miami Spice 2015

This is my third post on Miami Spice and you may be wondering how I decide which restaurants to feature out of the 194 that are participating in the program. My criteria are that the restaurants be top quality to begin with and have an attractive ambiance. Then they put their best foot forward for Spice (several notable places were eliminated because of lackluster menus) , looking at it as an opportunity to showcase their food to new diners who hopefully become loyalists. I also feature restaurants that are upscale, as this is a chance to sample some of the best food in town for less than diners would usually pay.Tomorrow and Wednesday look for lists of my other picks for Spice with the menus.

Red Steakhouse Miami Spice 2015

Proprietor and Executive Chef Peter Vauthy of Red ,The Steakhouse, 119 Washington Avenue (t.305-534-3688) goes all out for Miami Spice, seeing it as an opportunity to showcase his finest to new diners who will become part of his many local fans (like yours truly). Last year he came up with a novel concept – not one, but four exciting themed menus for Miami Spice. It worked so well, he’s doing the same, though with some new themes and a number of new dishes (not content to rest on his laurels, he’s always reinventing and creating).
