MIAMI - The 13th annual Miami Spice kicked off Friday, offering foodies exclusive dining deals from Aug. 1 through Sept. 30.

This year, more than 170 restaurants are participating in the two-month event, including 45 new restaurants. Lunch prices start at $23 per person and dinner prices start at $39 per person.

Also new to the program is a series of Miami Spice Mash-Up dinners, which kicked off in June and will last until the end of Miami Spice.

"This year we pay homage to our rich heritage and eclectic food by creating The Miami Spice Mash-Ups," said William D. Talbert III, CDME president and CEO of the GMCVB.  "These unique dining experiences feature chef collaborations bringing together diverse culinary styles and flavors into one dining experience." 

This year, Miami Spice fans will also have the opportunity to win special dining deals and prizes by posting and sharing photos of Miami Spice meals on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #MiamiSpice. One $100 gift certificate will be given out each week, and a grand prize of a hotel stay and VIP dining experience will also be given to one special winner.
