Miami’s up-and-coming arts district got a little bit cooler last year with the opening of Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, an art gallery-meets-bistro-meets-watering hole that has Miami hipsters swooning. Built inside an old warehouse, Wynwood has a sleek, minimalist look that provides a perfect backdrop for the art on display. An 11-foot-high sculpture of a rainbow-hued man greets guests upon entry, and murals by Shepard Fairey — better known for creating that iconic HOPE poster featuring Barack Obama — adorn the walls.
The art extends from the restaurant out front to the kitchen in the back, where Chef Marco Ferraro creates his own sausages of pork, beef, lamb and veal. Not a fan of meat? Try the equally delicious cilantro-laced seafood ceviche, or the delicate roasted beet and walnut salad. Or just go for a drink – with 40 beers and 70 bottles of wine to choose from, you won’t be disappointed.
