MIAMI – Local gourmands recently welcomed this year’s Miami Spice pre-selected menus — starting at $28 for a two-course lunch or brunch. The three-course dinners range from $45 to $60.
The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau’s restaurant promotion runs through September and features some of the restaurants in the inaugural Michelin Guide Florida.
COTE Miami, at the Design District’s commanding corner of Northeast Second Avenue and 39 Street, is without question the highlight of this Miami Spice season.
Michelin awarded Korean-American restaurateur Simon Kim’s steakhouse a star after awarding his location in New York four consecutive stars.
COTE Miami’s executive chef David Shim will be serving a $28 three-course lunch with options from Monday to Thursday and a $40 upgrade option.
The preset menu starts with an appetizer, either the Waldorf Salad with radicchio and celery, Asian pear, kabocha squash, candied hazelnuts, and parmesan cheese with honey Doenjang dressing, or the Steak Tartare with local grass-fed top-round, pear, and crispy tendon puffs.
It peaks with the entrée. The options are the Limited Edition Fried Chicken with organic chicken brined overnight, both white and dark meat with pickled daikon, sweet and tangy sauce, or the Optimus Prime, a thinly sliced 8oz of USDA prime rib.
The Butcher’s lunch upgrade is $12 more per person for the USDA Prime Hanger Steak, a ribeye grilled tableside that was aged for more than 45 days.
The final note is the Vanilla Soft Serve with soy sauce caramel. Beverage, tax, and gratuity are not included. Reservations were available on Open Table.
