Insider tips: Andy Martin
ANDY MARTIN of London design and architectural firm AMA is currently working on Chotto Matte, the Miami outpost of the Japanese/ Peruvian Soho restaurant, coming to life at the Herzog & de Meurondesigned 1111 Lincoln Road building in Miami Beach. Here are his top five Miami must-sees:
1 Sunday brunch at The Standard spa hotel, arriving Miami Vice style in a ridiculously large speedboat (standardhotels.com/miami). 2 Catch up on the art galleries and street art in Wynwood and the Design District. 3 Visit the landmark Bacardi Building, designed in 1963 and built by the rum company after it was ejected from Cuba (bacardicuba.net). 4 Enjoy cocktails at Broken Shaker before heading to 27 Restaurant at the Freehand Hotel (freehandhotels.com). 5 Andy Martin’s top hotel choice is The Raleigh Miami Beach, a classic home from home with a great restaurant (raleighhotel.com).
