Ruinart Champagne Brunch at Casa Tua Celebrates Piet Hein Eek

Katy Donoghue

9 December 2013

Last Thursday afternoon, Ruinart held a champagne brunch honoring Piet Hein Eek, who designed a new installation for Art Basel Miami Beach. The event was held at Casa Tua (the place to eat in Miami) and hosted by Ruinart’s Brand Director Nicolas Ricroque and Nicholas Baume, the Director & Chief Curator of the Public Art Fund (and curator of ABMB’s Art Public this year).

Eek’s fantastic champagne box for Ruinart has been making the rounds via large site-specific installations – we last saw it EXPO Chicago. The designer was on hand at the lunch, as well, telling us about how surprised he was by the success of the recycled-wood case and the possibility of future collaborations with the historic champagne house.

The brunch was just the thing we needed as we neared the end of our week in Miami Beach. Guests enjoyed champagne and Ruinart-filled mimosas (a little “hair of the dog” for some of us) while feasting on a variety of culinary delights – burrata and tomatoes, risotto, marinara-covered ziti, pastries, smoked salmon, bagels, eggs, cheeses, and a spread of charcuterie we may have visited more than twice.
