As the only restaurant on this list actually taking part in Miami Spice, Tuyo represents with its salad of Okeechobee shrimp with clams, crab and a "Salsa of Life," available on the regularly-priced luxury dining menu for the start of Miami Spice. Though we weren't told much about the "Salsa of Life" ingredients, we know its what makes the dish spicy. The Mexican dish is part of the restaurant's first leg of a four-part Miami Spice world tour through the French Caribbean, Brazil and Argentina, each lasting two weeks.
7. The Fever at Haven
When bar manager and head mixologust Isaac Grillo concocted "The Fever" ($15) as part of Haven's grand opening, he had no idea that 9,000 would be ordered in the first 14 months. A mix of 70 proof Grey Goose pear, lychee and pear puree, simple syrup, lime juice and fresh jalapeno slices is placed in a shaker tin with half cubes of "kold" draft ice, a harder ice that actually pulverizes the jalapeno. The resulting blend is strained into a martini glass, a prosecco champagne floater is added and a slice of fresh jalapeno tops the masterpiece.
