Miami Spice is in full effect. Now through September 30, you can dine at the city's hottest venues for less (three-course dinners for $39; lunches, $23). Each week, we'll highlight five restaurants with stellar menus. 

Meat Market

Lincoln Road's sexy steakhouse serves barbecue short rib empanadas, char-grilled rib-eye and chocolate gazpacho for lunch. Dinner options includes Bluepoint oysters, churrasco skirt steak and vanilla panna cotta. 
Neighborhood: South Beach

Gibraltar

A hidden waterside retreat, this New American venue shells out truffle cauliflower soup, short rib tostones and banana cheesecake sundae for lunch. Dinner includes Angus beef carpaccio, seared scallops and a cookie skillet. 
Neighborhood: Coconut Grove

Lure Fishbar

This swanky, seafood-focused venue caters to the dinner crowd with dishes like lobster bisque or a raw bar platter to start, shrimp risotto or skirt steak for an entree and key lime pie or ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
Neighborhood: South Beach

Novecento

In an Aventura plaza, the high-energy Argentinean watering hole offers fresh mozzarella with eggplant, spaghetti in a basil tomato sauce and mango cheesecake for lunch. The crowds can savor the signature empanadas, Brazilian steak and chocolate mousse topped with marshmallows.
