Art Basel on the Beach: Where to Eat on Lincoln Road
The quintessential Miami Beach cafe. Books & Books is loved by man and dog alike, so don't be surprised if your next-table dining companion is a chihuahua in a tutu. Just go with it for solid food, people watching, and a large vegan menu for the non-meat eaters in your group.
One of the few places on Lincoln Road where you can have a grown-up meal. Chef Sean Brasel's steaks are pricey but satisfying and the bustling crowd of well-heeled and beautiful souls pair well with the meal. Sip on one of the champagne cocktails specially crafted for Art Basel, the Garden of France ($19) with candied carrot puree, bay leaf syrup, lemon juice, orange bitters and Ruinart Blanc de Blanc, or the Basel 75 ($25) made with Bombay Dry, lemon juice, a zingy cinnamon infused raisin syrup and topped with Ruinart Blanc de Blanc. See? You really can drink in the art.
