This vibrant and quirky restaurant is built on fresh seasonal ingredients and warm hospitality, which shines through in their Miami Spice $45 dinner menu where James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schwartz is basically Cupid with a chef’s hat.

Start your adventure with the Wood Roasted Shrimp – it’s like a pool party in your mouth, complete with watermelon cannonballs and jicama synchronized swimmers. Jalapeño and lime dive-bomb in, while cilantro shouts, “Encore, encore!” Or, the Spicy Eggplant Terrine with smoked yogurt, chickpeas, harissa and mint.

Main course dilemma: Do you embrace the Halloumi & Summer Vegetable Kebab in green tahini rain, sprinkled with za’atar stardust? Or do you go for the tender Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder with ember-roasted cabbage and polenta

For dessert, go for the Kaffir Lime/Lemon Semifreddo. It’s summer in a scoop – zesty, refreshing, and ready to sweep you off your feet like a surprise beach vacation. Looking for something more rich? Try the Lava Cake with marinated cherry and crema.

Picture this: you and your significant other, in an open restaurant with views of lush greenery and vibrant artwork, indulging in some of the best Basque dishes you will find in Miami. This isn’t a scene from a movie, it’s the Miami Spice Date Night at LEKU.

With two Miami Spice menu options ($45/$60), you’ll find yourself tempted by dishes like Beet Tartare, Gambas al Ajillo. For the main course, you can’t miss the Arroz de Setas or the succulent Carrillera de Ternera Wagyu. And whatever you do, don’t leave without trying their legendary Tarta de Queso Vasca or Tarta de Chocolate.

For a little extra oomph, go for the $60 menu and choose between Tartaleta de Foie Gras y Cacao or Snapper Crudo. And as if that’s not enough, you’ll also have the tough decision of picking between dishes like duck breast with a game reduction and spicy cabbage, or for $10 more, the half branzino with a Bilbaina emulsion from the Basque region.

Mignonette, known for its oysters and seafood dishes is on Miami Spice. “Anything goes” meaning everything on their menu is up for grabs (well, almost) for an affordable price. Sorry, caviar lovers their Miami Spice menu excludes caviar, king crab, jumbo lump crab, oyster flight, and whole fish.

But either way, you’ll have options galore. Mignonette offers a little something for everyone. For appetizer, be sure to try their spicy tomato Mussels or the mouthwatering Charred Octopus. For your main course, we recommend the Crispy Skin Stripped Bass or the Red Fish with andouille crust, both complemented by the rich bomba rice and succulent shrimp and lobster consommé. And be sure to end your meal on a high note with either the classic carrot cake or a tangy slice of key lime pie.
