This week, Whitewaller Miami launches for Art Basel in Miami Beach (December 7—10). To help guide you to the best spots in town—where you can eat, drink, see art, and relax at, we hear from a group of insiders. Next up, Deputy Director of the Bass, Jean Ortega.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
For great food on a budget, nothing beats SuViche (try the Chifa). If you are looking for a nice night out without breaking the bank, Blue Collar in the Upper East Side is the place to go. If you are looking to splurge, nothing beats Le Sirenuse at the newly renovated Surf Club in Surfside.
WHERE TO SEE ART
The Bass, of course! After a long-awaited transformation that resulted in a 50 percent increase in programmable space, The Bass is back and features an array of international artists, including exhibitions by Ugo Rondinone, Pascale Marthine Tayou, and Mika Rottenberg.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
I’ve always been told that I have an old soul, so it comes as no surprise that the most relaxing place for me is at home with my husband and three dachshunds. I mean, we do live in paradise. When family and friends are in town, though, nothing beats relaxing by the pool at The Raleigh or the Delano.
