For the Whitewaller Miami issue, out this week for Art Basel in Miami Beach, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things Miami—that shared with us how to navigate the city this fall. Here, Executive Director and Chief Curator at The Bass Museum of Art, Silvia Karman Cubiñá, share her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax this week.
WHERE TO EAT
Pubbelly and Pubbelly Sushi in Miami Beach serve delicious small plates fusing Latin and Asian dishes. I also love Sapore di Mare in Coconut Grove, which has the best cacio e pepe pasta in Miami. Period.
WHERE TO SIP
The award-winning, much-talked-about Employees Only (in New York) just opened a location in Miami Beach with excellent and creative craft cocktails.
WHERE TO SEE ART
The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse in Wynwood. They recently installed a powerful Anselm Kiefer exhibition. It is such a delight to visit these major works here in Miami by such an influential artist!
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
I love a night out at Faena‘s many glamorous restaurants and bars—Pao by Paul Qui, Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann, Saxony Bar, and the Living Room are all great places to go for a splashy Miami night.
WHERE TO RELAX
The Biltmore hotel pool in Coral Gables is a very remarkable place, and one of the largest pools I’ve ever swam in. Make sure to wander into the hotel hallways to see pictures of the synchronized swimming competitions held there in the 1940s.
TOP SHOWS TO SEE IN MIAMI
Do not miss the Public sector in Collins Park. It’s a great intermission from the Miami Beach Convention Center with a fantastic selection of outdoor sculptures and performances.
