It is hard to imagine, but the Summer season is coming to a close. For the locals it feels like an endless summer due to Miami’s sub-tropcial weather.  Although, a quick glance to the calendar indicates that we are inching closer to the Autumnal Equinox. With the end of Summer comes Miami Spice, a celebration of Miami’s passion for food and life! Quattro is excited to participate in Miami Spice 2014 so we can showcase our restaurant for the lifeblood of our city, the local gastronome.

Quattro was established in the heart of South Beach on Lincoln Road Mall in 2006.  Since day one of our opening we have kept on-point with our mantra, authentic Italian cuisine by using the finest of ingredients. Miami Spice first started in Miami in 2002 inspired by the success of New York City’s Restaurant Week. When Miami Spice began, a total of 54 restaurants from the Miami metro participated in the celebration. Fast forward to 2014, and Quattro is one of the 131 restaurants participating in Spice. The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau have stated that they are happy with the number of participants. According to an interview with Steve Haas, the current number of participating restaurants is perfect. QuattroMiami_Spice_2014

“I don’t want every restaurant in Miami to participate. I want the number manageable with great restaurants that provide a good value.” Steve Haas Chairman of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau.

A few consumers may not be aware that not every restaurant is chosen to participate in Miami Spice. The first requirement in order to be considered for Miami Spice is to have a good Zagat rating. Next, the fixed Spice menu the restaurant proposes must present value to the consumer as the prices are fixed at $23 for lunch or $39 for dinner. One last thing, the restaurant also is visited anonymously by one of the deciding members. This way they can receive a true experience the restaurant will offer as Miami Spice participant.

Quattro Miami is more than happy to participate in Miami Spice 2014! This will be our sixth year participating in the culinary celebration.
