The 5 best Miami Spice restaurants near Fort Lauderdale

Don't rule out Miami Spice just because you live north of the Dade County line. Here are five restaurants within 30 minutes of Fort Lauderdale that offer an amazing, three-course Miami Spice menu. The $39 Miami Spice deal runs now through Sept. 30. 


1. Paladar Latin Kitchen & Rum Bar - Hallandale Beach

Geography lesson? The restaurant is in Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach but still managed to be included in the Miami Spice deal. Sweet. 

What you're ordering: ropa vieja, ceviche, rum glazed Cuban pork and Cuban bread pudding 

Bonus: Yes, you read that right. You get two appetizers instead of the usual one.


2. Bourbon Steak Miami - Aventura

You can finally try this highly-acclaimed steakhouse without breaking the bank.

What you're ordering: the lobster chowder, the rib eye and the Bourbon Steak Peanut Butter "Snickers."

3. Timo Restaurant & Bar - Sunny Isles Beach

Italian-Mediterranean cuisine at its best. 

What you're ordering: the duck confit, charcoaled baby lamb chops and the pistachio dusted mango cheesecake

4. Fish Fish - North Miami

What's better than fresh, Florida seafood? Nothing. 

What you're ordering: baked goat cheese (yumm), crispy whole hog fish and banana bread a la mode. 

5. Pilar Restaurant and Bar - Aventura

It's named after Ernest Hemingway's famed fishing boat. That's reason enough to check it out. 

What you're ordering: the smoked mac & cheese or the pimento bruschetta, the filet mignon or lobster risotto and the chocolate ganache pie. So many good options. 

Bonus: All dinners include 1 glass of red or white house wine.
