Miami Spice starts August 1 and for two months diners will be able to choose from about 150 restaurants participating in this promotion. So how does a restaurant catch the eye of discerning restaurant-goers in that sea of options? A promotion on top of the promotion.

Three of Miami's favorite casual eateries have pooled their resources to offer a special "Passport Through Spice" program.

Enjoy a Miami Spice lunch or dinner at Peacock Garden Cafe, Talavera Cocina Mexicana, and Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar and Latam Grill will receive a complimentary $25 gift card that can be used at any of the restaurants for a later meal. The card is valid for up to 90 days after receipt and guests must have a special passport stamped by all three restaurants (just ask for one upon your first restaurant visit). All three restaurants offer Miami Spice prix-fixe menus seven days a week for both lunch and dinner. Spice lunches are $19 per person, and Spice dinners are $33 per person.

Whether you choose lunch or dinner, each restaurant offers a good value. Here are some Spice highlights:
