In the past few years, Miami has quietly—and powerfully—redefined itself. While the oonz-oonz vibe is very much alive and well and out all night, the city has shifted its focus to art. In the sixteen years since Art Basel made its second home here, a new crop of exciting and provocative galleries has taken center stage in the city. This has become a place to discover new artists and take in some of the most engaging exhibits anywhere. Meanwhile, the food landscape is as much a testament to smaller, more creative spots springing up in emerging neighborhoods, like Little River and Little Haiti, as it is to international imports, like Zuma and the newly arrived Chotto Matte. Don’t misunderstand: There is no dearth of ways to drink tequila at 4 a.m. It’s just that you’ll probably want to visit a gallery the next day.
