Eat Like a Local Miami Florida

Seaspice

Often credited as a leading force in the revitalization of the Miami River neighborhood, Seaspice continues to be the unrivaled waterfront restaurant and celebrity favorite destination. Seaspice’s star chef Angel Leon along with owners Carlos & Maryam Miranda created quite the unique and eclectic menu inspired by Mediterranean and global influences. Its interior design is a study in implicit restraint that blends organic and industrial elements with homage to the area’s nautical roots. Boat-friendly, with 250 feet of private docking privileges, the restaurant elevates gastro-classic dining via sophisticated techniques and commitment to quality, combined with stunning interiors and views of the Miami River and downtown skyline. In 2018, Seaspice unveils AIR, a private upstairs deck where guests and celeb clientele will be able to hold private dinners ensuring a secluded yet shared view of the Miami river and skyline.
