Art Basel Edition
And so the annual tradition has arrived. While the art gets better and better each year, we also have different dining go-to’s to hit up (Mandolin never, ever fails). Even with our comfortable eating outposts, there are a few new kids on the block that should not be missed. From avocado toast (can’t help it), to late night tacos, this is your blueprint.
South Beach: Matador Room at The Edition Hotel. Some more Latin fare from a master restaurateur (Jean Georges) and a great scene. If you’re around during the day, brunch at Market at The Edition Hotel is another great option.
Brickell: Coya. This Peruvian outpost has arrived from London, and if you’re craving some delicious and fresh seafood with flavor downtown, hit this up for dinner. (Though if you’re craving Italian, then head to Il Gabbiano.)
South Beach Late night: Bodega Taqueria y Tequila. Drinks and dancing followed by some tacos is essentially everything you can ask for in this life. (If you’re only on the prowl for drinks, then Broken Shaker, a good old classic would be another best bet.)
Miami: Vagabond Restaurant and Bar. A modern setting with a great variety of delicious food in a casual setting (away from the crowd) never disappoints. Neither does that cheeseburger.
Wynwood: Zak the Baker. For a quick sit down with a variety of tasty toasts (avocado, beets, the works), get to this spot for a satisfying bite.
And if you find yourself mingling through Bal Harbour, then sushi at Makoto is often mandatory.
And if you’re seeking some hidden gems in the Little Haiti area, Vogue has picked out some little spots to explore upon your visit. Coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, and beyond.
