Splurging on a decadent meal doesn’t always have to happen at dinner. Usually, restaurants reserve their most show-stopping dishes for the evening rush, but that’s not the case anymore. Some of Miami’s most luxurious eateries are setting their sights on lunch with a slew of next-level dishes and prix fixe menus for a daytime feast. You can experience the city’s most celebrated eats over a mid-day meeting for seriously affordable prices. Check out some of our favorite elevated lunches at a steal:
Nestled under the culinary royalty of L’Atelier Joel Robuchon, Le Jardinier comes to us from the mind of Michelin-starred Chef Alain Verzeroli. The bright and airy dining space calls to mind exactly what its French name would suggest: a garden. You can select your eats a la carte, but we suggest letting them do the curating for you with their $40 prix fixe menu that includes three courses and an ‘amuse juice’ to start.

When the award-winning Osaka opened earlier this year, we were spellbound by its impeccable dishes and creative approach to Nikkei cuisine. Not only is the dining room already awe-inspiring, but the service and food are at an all-time high for this city. They brought back their power lunch last month, and we can’t get enough of their carpassion and other great eats. Bringing an elevated lunch experience back to the work day, Osaka is fit for meetings or solo escapes from the office.

We were so impressed by Novikov‘s high-class service and endless array of dim sum selections, we’re so happy to see them bring that talent to a bustling lunch crowd. This is the kind of restaurant we love the program for, so we all can try some of the city’s freshest and best eats at an affordable price. Their prix fixe “business lunch” menu comes with three courses all at a steal of $29. Whether it’s grilled or steamed, you can’t go wrong.

Chef Michael Schwartz is a household name in Miami’s food scene by now, being behind some of the city’s most beloved restaurants like Michael’s Genuine and Harry’s Pizzeria. His Traymore at the Como Hotel recently revamped their menu, and you can indulge in their most show-stopping eats during lunch for a steal. Oysters and wok-charred salmon for under $25? Yes, please.

LPM Restaurant & Bar is a world-renowned restaurant of luxury, evoking the essence of France’s Cote D’Azur with exceptional class and ease. Here, you’ll be immediately transported to the Mediterranean for some classic Nicoise flavors in every dish. From Tuesday to Friday, snag their $29 prix fixe lunch where you can now take full advantage of their beautifully-designed dining room which will make you feel like you’ve been invited into someone’s comforting home, or their outdoor seating holds every bit of “chic” you expect.

We’ve long-since been big fans of the wonderful world of Peruvian-Japanese fusion, and Chotto Matte brings a trendy, elevated element to that marriage. On Saturdays and Sundays, they open their highly-rated dining room for lunch and brunch, featuring their full selection of Nikkei dishes. But if you’re willing to hold out for a true feast, have a late lunch (or early dinner) there on Wednesday where everything is half off.
