In some ways, it's a great moment to be a restaurant junkie in Miami. Winter Spice started this week and with it has come a slew of "recession dining" deals around town. If you plan your nights accordingly you can make out with a meal and drink for less than the price of cocktail at most Miami clubs.
Café Prima Pasta (414 71st Street, Miami Beach) - offers 50% off the entire menu (appetizers, entrees, desserts and drinks) daily from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Making a pasta dish like the Gnocchi 4 Formaggi, Lasagna Bolognese or the Penne Ciao as little as $8.50.
SUSHISAMBA dromo (600 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach) – has recently launched a kids menu making dining family style more cost effective. For $12 your SAMBAkid can choose from Sushi Bites, Samba Sliders, Anticuchos or a Baby Bento and finish with a choice of dessert. No babies in tow?
