Hola, I’m Sami.

I created Love & Spice because there is a need in the market for cool, amusing experiences where adults can enjoy the best Miami has to offer in food, drinks, hospitality, entertainment and style.

I coined the term “hospitality curator” to describe exactly what we do at Love & Spice. We design unique, memorable experiences with a playful irreverence. Our goal is to remind guests that Life is better when we’re having fun, surrounded by love, beauty, and when we let down our guard long enough to truly connect with one another. 

By igniting all five senses, we bring together the best elements available – plus a dash of our signature sass – we transform ordinary spaces into ambient experiences where people can immerse themselves in elevated cuisine, craft cocktails, leisure and touch of fantasy.

Whether you are a restaurateur or hotelier who needs to re-energize your venue, a party planner who wants to wow your guests, or the organizer of an iconic event who needs to make a statement with one of our signature pop-ups – we are here to prove that life gets better and sexier with our recipe of Authentic Ingredients, a Blend of Love & Spice… and one must never forget that Pinch of Salt.
