In a fantastic curated culinary experience, Art Basel and Andiago teamed up to create an unforgettable dining guide!
Art Basel took place in Miami Beach from December 2 to 4 and provided an opportunity to see cutting-edge art from more than 250 galleries, fabulous parties, incredible clubs, and VIP pop-ups. However, Miami is also one of the most vibrant food cities in the U.S! In Andiago, we recommend the trendiest restaurants based on AI tech and authentic experiences. Members share their favorite places that are then shared and discovered with other foodies worldwide. We curated the most delicious dining itinerary with Art Basel, filled with hidden gems and unique experiences.
