Best of Art Basel 2018

Just when I think there can’t possibly be anymore events, happenings and fairs in Art Basel Miami week, 2018 turned out to be the topper. It’s probably easy to do a week of 24/7 art, design, food and lifestyle happenings and never repeat an event or a venue. Fortunately, some of the offerings launched this week will become permanent, and many of the museum shows are around for the first quarter of 2019. I’ve indicated which you’ll be able to see beyond the Fair week. In any case, here are some of my favorites in fashion, design and art this year because they’re highly creative, fun, handsome, clever, skillful, or all of the above.

New Fave for Pan Asian Food

A new fave for uber tasty food, a comfortable and Miami experience, and fair prices is Vagabond Sushi Bar & Market . Now don’t think it’s yet another sushi place, this is Pan Asian. In fact, my standout picks were not sushi. It’s not surprising the place is solid – it’s the brainchild of Amir Ben Zion, formerly of sushi hot spot Bond Street and Miss Yip. He created what he calls Vagabond Village at the Vagabond Motel Miami with the restaurant, pool and bar, and “Brigitte”, a social/billiard room with cocktail and full bottle service.

Mexican Restaurant with a Difference

It seems like every month another taco place opens in Miami. Many are very similar in menu and décor, as in rustic, with an open kitchen, and not much in style. Not so with the very successful Mexican born and bred La Cerveceria de Barrio which opened in late August. I can easily see why it’s so successful – a seafood slant, original menu items which hail from seven regions in Mexico, very good service, and a casual décor that’s “alegre” (joyful) and fun. Plus, for my taste, the guac is the best in town, which you can team up with housemade corn tortillas. Plus, there’s a 20% discount for Miami Dade county residents!
