It's that time again. Full list of participating restaurants at www.ilovemiamispice.com/participants.htm
New this year is the bifurcation of participants into a $23/39 "luxury" group, and a $19/33 "regular" group.
For at least one restaurant - Bourbon Steak - this is a good thing because in prior years the steak option always carried a $10 supplement (taking the $35 base to $45). This year they have a wagyu ribeye without a supplement, and that is one of the best values this year.

Never been to Bianca at the Delano, but this article puts it on my to-do's this year (though a $30 supplement for truffle taglietelle is a little daunting - these are summer truffles, not white or black):
So my "for sure" list is:
Bourbon Steak (at least 2x)
Scarpetta (New Times cites a weekday bonus course, though I don't see it on their posted menu)
Hakkasan for dim sum brunch
My "wish list" are:
1500* at Eden Roc
Tuyo (new this year)
