Michelle Bernstein offers weekend Spice at Michy's.
Ahh. Miami Spice. True, it's a great value but like everything in life, the two month-long promotion comes with a few catches -- like the fact that many restaurants don't offer the three-course prix-fixe Spice menu on weekends.

That sucks, because a lot of us simply have too many things "on our plate" to dine out during the week. So where does that leave you?

Thankfully, the Miami Spice website is user-friendly and allows you to search for restaurants that offer the dining deal on weekends. You can do that...or you can let us do the work for you. We've perused just about every restaurant and compiled a list of what we consider to be the ones that offer the best values for the weekend.

Our criteria? They have to serve Spice Friday, Saturday and Sunday (unless, of course, the restaurant is closed) evenings and the menu has to be an exceptional value, filled with a variety of delicious offerings.

Since there are two price levels for Spice, we've listed the top five in each category -- fine dining ($33 per person) and luxury dining ($39 per person). Enjoy!

Luxury Top Five (Dinner $39 per person)

5. Red The Steakhouse
With a host of choices (including a five ounce petite Certified Angus Beef filet), this SoBe steak house doesn't skimp with their Spice menu. The menu changes frequently, but expect classic appetizers like a Caesar salad or Italian stuffed peppers. Don't feel like steak? Atlantic salmon, Ashley Farms chicken breast, broiled pork chops, or bucatini with red sauce and meatball are options. Desserts include a drunken peach cobbler, made with Southern peaches macerated in Southern Comfort.

4. J&G Grill
Bradley Kilgore is the chef de cuisine at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's gorgeous spot at the St. Regis Bal Harbour resort. Yes, we know Miamians like to dine late, but for once try to make it to dinner before sunset to catch a glimpse of the Atlantic change colors before she's enveloped in darkness. As for the fare? We'd suggest starting with the fresh calamari filled with lamb sausage with smoked tomato-caper emulsion and squid ink before moving on to the poussin with pine nut-foie gras jus, served with truffle fava bean succotash, chanterelles, and housemade raisins. Try the chocolate, bread, and olive oil dessert to finish off the evening.

Is the winner for the Miami Spice voucher going to be posted? I have entered like crazy but I know that Miami Spice ends September 30 and I don't think a winner has been chosen because the contest is still up. I really want to win if you can't tell! lol

I highly disagree with having the J&G Grill on this list for the Miami Spice menu... I think it's one restaurant that really shouldn't participate.  

The service was terrible the minute we mentioned the Miami Spice menu, the portions were invisible, and the food was far from delicious. Clearly Chef Gras was the soul of this restaurant.  Not a great Jean-Georges experience!!

on YELP you are not the ONLY one giving this place a thumbs down - i actually do NOT myself trust any place that OVERcharges based on NAMEs as if the food experience was secondary
