Sample Miami cuisine, interpreted through an imaginative lens, at The Bazaar by José Andrés or the new Florida Cookery at the James Royal Palm. Our guide also tells you where to enjoy bespoke cocktails in a tropical hideaway and a wood-paneled speakeasy. 

With plenty of ideas, our guide ensures a glittering, whirlwind weekend.

You've been busy and overwhelmed, between hundred-year weather events and yearly holiday stresses. We've taken care of the planning--all you have to do is show up.
