MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – In response to new emergency orders prohibiting indoor dining in Miami-Dade County restaurants, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) is looking to ‘spice’ it up.
The GMCVB has adapted the Miami Spice Restaurant program to promote those participants are offering to-go as well as outdoor dining for their prix-fix meals which include appetizer, main course, and dessert for $25 lunch/brunch and $39 dinner.
The new Miami Spice options complement the existing and award-winning Miami Eats program developed by the GMCVB in April when local restaurants experienced their first wave of closures. The program was recently recognized for promoting hundreds of restaurants’ takeout and delivery services throughout Greater Miami and the Beaches.
More than 100 restaurants are participating in Miami Spice with an outdoor dining option and more than 60 are now offering Miami Spice To-Go. The Miami Spice webpage offers easy to use filters allowing users to search participating restaurants by neighborhood and cuisine type as well as those offering to-go menus.
A similar approach is used with the Miami Eats webpage, which provides a list of more than 1,200 restaurants offering takeout and delivery of their standard menus. Miami Eats calls on residents to order out to ‘help out’ the local restaurant industry by calling them directly to place their orders to avoid fees whenever possible.
“Miami Spice To-Go and Miami Eats are both examples of GMCVB programs created in record-time to respond to the travel and hospitality industry’s urgent need to stimulate business during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said William D. Talbert, III, GMCVB president and CEO. “Miami-Dade County’s travel and hospitality industry is the top employer in the community and the GMCVB is committed to generating business for the industry in a responsible and safe way during these unprecedented times.”
This year, Miami Spice is free to all GMCVB partners, while Miami Eats is free and open to all Miami-Dade County restaurants regardless of location, cuisine, or price point.
