ICA + MDD

Already home to many private art collections, the Miami Design District will soon house its first museum when the Institute of Contemporary Art (pictured below) debuts in its new permanent location during Art Basel 2016. The joint effort between Norman and Irma Braman and Craig Robins will boast nearly 55,000 square feet of exhibition space—including a 15,000-square-foot sculpture garden.

Nile Nosh From the moment Los Angeles import Cleo premiered at South Beach’s The Redbury, it has been consistently packed. Dine on an eclectic Mediterranean menu, under the watchful eye of the Egyptian queen Cleopatra herself (in the form of a large, lit photograph). The warm, fresh-baked bread is worth every calorie to scoop colorfully garnished dips like carrot harissa. Vegetarians, often overlooked in Miami, are given respect through dolmades, flatbreads such as artichoke and wilted arugula, and a salad of grilled halloumi atop kale with pieces of citrus and toasted hazelnuts in a tangy dressing. Meat eaters can choose from staples like moussakah and lamb tagine, while seafood lovers enjoy fresh oysters, ceviche, Moroccan fish tagine and more. Be ready to shout “Opa!”—Cleo has quickly become the local go-to for plate-smashing birthday blowouts. 1776 Collins Avenue, 305.534.2536, sbe.com/cleosouthbeach

Chrome Home

Chrome Hearts has a crush on Miami. The West Coast fashion and home brand, where collaborations are king, opened its first store-meets-art-gallery hybrid, with an onsite David’s Café and chocolate shop to boot. Los Angeles– based Fahey/Klein Gallery runs an outpost for twentiethcentury and contemporary photography upstairs, while every imaginable item with the CH mark—from cutting boards to Baccarat crystal glasses—occupies the ground level. Among exclusive collections for CH are Kate Hudson’s precious diamond and white gold jewelry line and The Elder Statesman’s luxurious cashmere loungewear and blankets. 4025 NE 2nd Avenue, 786.953.7384, chromehearts.com

The duo behind Freehand Miami’s The Broken Shaker have another hit with 27 Restaurant & Bar. Elad Zvi and Gabriel Orta—the team that started the renowned Bar Lab, which creates avantgarde cocktail programs around the world—are the brains behind the progressive Indian Creek compound’s first full-service bar and restaurant. A blackboard at the restaurant’s entrance alerts diners to what’s in store for the day, listing local ingredients like oyster mushrooms from Paradise Farms and Zak the Baker bread. The city’s melting-pot culture comes through in beautifully presented, authentic dishes as varied as shakshouka, and a ropa vieja and arepa platter, served on mismatched plates for a vintage, Old Florida vibe. Sip exotic cocktails flavored with lulo or turmeric in the hip upstairs lounge, where DJs spin low-key tunes. 2727 Indian Creek Drive, 305.531.2727, thefreehand.com

located on NE 41st Street, just down the road from the De La Cruz Collection, the new museum marks the first U.S. commission for Madrid-based Aranguren & Gallegos Arquitectos. In the meantime, the ICA is operating in its makeshift digs in the nearby Moore Building. Ryan Sullivan’s large-scale paintings and works on paper are on view through the end of August. 4040 NE 2nd Avenue (temporary location), 305.901.5272, icamiami.org
