Franklin Sirmans’ Miami: Sherwoods, Locust Projects, and The Surf Club Restaurant

By Whitewaller

December 5, 2018

To give you an insider look at Miami for your stay during Art Basel, we’re talking to those in-the-know. Here, the Director of Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Franklin Sirmans, shares his favorite spots to dine, drink, relax, and see art.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
The Surf Club Restaurant with Thomas Keller for the unparalleled Miami atmosphere, next to the new Four Seasons. During Art Week, dinner tends to be a little less time intensive, so I favor Sherwoods, off the beaten track between northern Little Haiti and El Portal, for something delicious in the way of global comfort food. Their bar is a classic, too.

WHERE TO SEE ART
PAMM, of course, and MOCA North Miami has a great AfriCOBRA show coming up; as well as Locust Projects for the heart and soul of Miami’s alternative art scene—founded by artists. And I can’t wait to see the new installation, “More / Less,” at the de la Cruz, highlighting the exchange between abstraction and figuration.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
Newly minted tennis courts at Morningside Park, a quiet stretch of beach at Soho Beach House, and PAMM Presents on Thursday night.
