Burrata Soft Serve 2 - photo credit Dominique Ansel Kitchen

Acclaimed French pastry Chef Dominique Ansel (of his eponymous New York City bakery) is heading to SoBe for Art Basel to launch a special pop-up experience at The Setai {2001 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 888.625.7500}.

From noon to midnight on Wednesday, December 2, the award-winning chef will set up an exclusive soft serve ice cream window featuring delicious frozen treats–perfect for Art Baselers looking for a midday refresher or late-night dessert.

Featured flavors include: Caramel Stout (chocolate “caviar” with sea salt brownie) and Burrata Soft Serve (balsamic caramel with confit strawberry and micro-basil). Each super-creamy flavor is made with fresh milk (as opposed to a mix or a powder) and is served in a homemade, hand-rolled honey tuile cone.

Katsuya Sushi Bar Chefs

Art Basel Miami Beach (aka Miami Art Week) is upon us and we couldn’t be more thrilled! The glitz and glamour that descends upon our great city for one week only in December is a can’t-miss opportunity to mingle with artists, art connoisseurs, and celebrities alike. And, lucky for the food lovers out there, this also means ample opportunities to dine at some of the city’s hottest restaurants.

In honor of Art Basel, from December 3-6, Katsuya South Beach {1701 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 305.455.2995} at the SLS Hotel (which is typically only open for dinner) is rolling out a special limited-edition lunch menu. Available from 11:30am-3pm, the special menu will feature a number of Katsuya favorites, including the Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, thinly sliced with ponzu and jalapeño; Whitefish Sashimi with Crispy Onion, thinly sliced and seared with momiji ponzu and light crispy onion; and a selection of signature robata bar items and sushi rolls. The restaurant will resume its normal dinner service and menu starting at 5pm.
