Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Wine Bar

I am just going to go ahead and be 100% honest here, this is by far my favorite restaurant in South Florida! A true hidden gem, nestled in the heart of Kendall, Chef Adrianne’s is a true reflection of how someones passion for food can be tasted in every dish and every bite! Ladies and gentlemen if you want flavor, presentation, ambiance and taste bud magic, than I implore you to try Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Wine Bar.

A Dark Chocolate and Nutella Croissant Bread Pudding with Vanilla ice cream is the only real choice you need when it comes to the dessert option.

Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar

If fun bold flavors is what you are craving, than Pisco Y Nazca might be what you are looking for. Located in The Palms at Town & Country, this fairly new eatery serves Peruvian dishes with a modern twist. If you are a fan of seafood than the Ceviche Tropical would be your choice of appetizer along with their Pescado Andino ( Sanpper Filet with a creamy huacatay sauce. Their Miami Spice menu includes your choice of one of 5 appetizers , 5 entrees , and 2 desserts. Great spot for socializing while enjoying great tasting dishes!

El Cielo Restaurant 

This is the only restaurant on the list that I myself have not actually tried. I decided to include it because after carefully reading through the menu and studying other articles about this place, I realized how intrigued it had me. This truly seems like a one of a kind experience of combining molecular gastronomy techniques with fine dining.  I am a firm believer that food can reach so many other senses in the body and when done right can take you through both a cultural & culinary journey. El Cielo is offering both a Lunch and Dinner menu for Miami Spice. From what I have been able to gather, the portions are small, so if you need Flinstone dishes, than this might not be the place for you. Now if you are like me and want to dabble more on the adventurous side than why not give this place a try. Their Miami Spice Menu includes things like Choco Therapy and a Spicy Cheese Ice cream w/Guava sauce & Crocanticos of Pistacchio.

A local landmark of 35 years, Christy’s was the very first restaurant that I had ever tried during Miami Spice month 10 years ago! Now there are a few reasons why this fine dining establishment has been around for as long as it has. Romantic ambiance, chic sophistication, and a menu that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters, Christy’s is a must try during this years Miami Spice. The Lobster bisque, one of the appetizer choices in their Miami spice menu, has been one of my favorite dishes for its savory and creamy flavor. Perfectly cooked Filet Mignon , and a beautiful baked Alaska are some of the traditional dishes that you would expect to find at this premier steakhouse. This is the right choice for a date night or even to sit back and enjoy live jazz at their piano bar! Their Miami Spice menu is being offered Monday – Saturday, with dinner beginning at 5:00pm.
