It’s “bon appetit” time for foodies participating in the best summer restaurant promotion in Miami. The annual Miami Spice promotion ends this month on September 30, offering three-course prix-fixe lunches and dinners at the city’s most beloved establishments.
This year, more than 240 restaurants will participate, and we asked our longtime Miami Beach resident and President and Founder Christian Jagodzinski to pick his favorite top 5 “Miami Spice” offerings in Miami Beach:
1. Mr. Chow – This gorgeous space with a lavish gold leaf crystal chandelier (designed by Michael Chow himself) is the epitome of an upper class dining experience featuring “exquisite Chinese food and professional service.”
2. Estiatorio Milos – This South of Fifth’s ultra-sleek Greek spot never disappoints, “ I love their lunch menu all year round.”
3. Pubbelly – This Asian-inspired gastropub on the beach features “creative cuisine in an unpretentious setting.”
4. Pied a Terre – Hidden away in the historic Cadet Hotel, this refined restaurant “feels like you are in France, a very small, quaint place run by an authentic French family.”
5. Red, The Steakhouse – This exceptional South Beach outpost of a Cleveland original offers “one of the best steaks in Miami.”

Unlike some mountain towns, the adventures in Aspen are just starting to heat up when the snow melts. The ski town known for its breathtaking landscape and dynamic culture scene comes alive with a variety of activities, from star gazing to mountain biking. There are many reasons why Aspen is one of America’s most visited destinations over the summer, and here’s a guide on how to make the most of this month of August in this unforgettable and exclusive getaway.
Since opening in 2005, the Belly Up has become Aspen’s premier spot for live music. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy Isaak’s first album of new material in six years than at this intimate venue with a capacity of 450.
Gather amongst diverse thought leaders, creatives, scholars and members of the public to address some of the world’s most complex issues. The panel discussion will focus on the future of new media and how it has transformed our lives and the way we consume information.
Head up the Silver Queen Gondola to gaze through telescopes and explore the constellations and learn from experts. Be sure to stay until 8:15 for the keynote presentation with Astronomer and Author David Auguilar entitled “To Pluto and Beyond”.
The weather is perfection in Aspen in the summer…… warm, sunny (no humidity) and it cools off at night. Indulge in the outdoors, ride up the Elk Camp Gondola in Snowmass and enjoy locally-sourced ingredients in a farm-to-table-inspired dinner menu, outdoor family activities and live music.
Thrill in lift-served biking covering more than 50 miles of terrain. The trail system on Snowmass ranges from gentle roads to challenging freeride single track.
