|Pan con Bistec|
Since Art Basel Miami Beach launched in 2002 it spawned countless satellite fairs. Most of them took root in Wynwood leading to a revival/gentrification of the blighted commercial district. Enriqueta's stands proudly on the corner of 29th Street and North Miami Avenue in a still-dilapidated looking part of the neighborhood. Once you've wowed you out-town-friends with your encyclopedic knowledge of Fernando Botero's landscapes, take them for a pan con bistec and a cortadito, and really solidify that Bohemian image you've been cultivating.

As surely as time passes, visitors from cities like New York or London will insist on the superiority of their home towns. To show them they are wrong, hit a few post-fair parties, throw back a few free flutes of champagne and head for this distinctly urban late night eatery for rice and noodle dishes and stuffed steamed buns. If they're still stubborn, take them next to door to Bardot for some good music. It's up to you whether to ditch them.
1. Brunch at Michael's Genuine
|Duck hash at Michael's Genuine.|
By Sunday you may or may have run your trust fund down to zero. You'll have a hangover from all the toasting and late night drinking. Many would argue that Michael's Genuine Food & Drink is the best restaurant in the Design District. I would argue brunch is where Schwartz and his team shine brightest. It doesn't really matter what you get here. The crispy rice cake topped with a poached egg will chase that hangover just as well as some of Hedy Goldsmith's childhood treats, or another cocktail. Just one piece of advice: Make a reservation.
