Blog: A Weekend at Missoni Baia

Posted 04.21.2024

As your home base and private oasis, Missoni Baia serves as the start and finish to the perfect weekend in Miami. From Edgewater to Biscayne Bay, the perfect weekend awaits, and we’re serving up the perfectly crafted weekend with recommendations for museums, sunbathing, and fine dining, including an at-home feast created in your own state-of-the-art kitchen at Missoni Baia.

Saturday Brunch

Morgans is synonymous with comfort food. The white-painted 1930s house with a wraparound porch is homey from the first glance, and the black and white striped awning harkens back to Miami’s rustic, off-the-beaten-path past. Ask for a table on the porch, take in the morning air, and order raspberry flat cakes or brioche French toast—if you haven’t already overindulged in the mini-Danish from the basket that is delivered to every table before brunch. For a walk on the savory side, ask for eggs benedict or a delicate but filling omelet.

The Most Pleasant of Errands

Take a leisurely after-brunch stroll through the Upper East Side Farmers Market at Legion Park. You can browse seasonal specialties for a Saturday evening dinner in your condo, including local produce, grass-fed beef, and fixings for the quintessential Floridian meal: in-season stone crabs, home-baked bread, and honey—and fresh flowers to decorate the table. An assortment of vendors line the park, making for a colorful meander along the shoreline. As a bonus, ample free parking is available.

Culture Yourself

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) has been a long-standing local favorite, showcasing 20th– and 21st-century international art. Since its earlier incarnations as the Center for the Fine Arts (CFA) and the Miami Art Museum, PAMM has evolved with the times and the community surrounding it, offering exhibitions that explore Miami as a cultural crossroads and gathering point for people of the world. PAMM is also known for promoting boundary-bending, interdisciplinary works and for interactive exhibitions that break down the wall between viewer and artist. Post-visit, you can stop by their restaurant, Verde, which serves a variety of fresh seasonal dishes like the Squash Blossoms Pizza with zucchini, goat cheese, and tomato sugo.

A Fabulous Dinner In

Remember those stone crabs and other sundries you procured at the farmers market? For a restaurant-worthy dinner in your own private residence, fire up each of the burners on your Gaggenau cooktop to steam your seafood and simmer the perfect dipping sauce. Your guests can take in the dramatic culinary display of sautéing and seasoning from the kitchen island. While they’re distracted by the stunning interplay between your kitchen’s Blue de Savoie marble counters, matte white lacquer cabinets, and mirrored backsplashes, reach into your wine cooler for a bottle of unoaked chardonnay or the champagne that you’ve been saving (this is, after all, the perfect weekend). Serve dinner with a freshly prepared green papaya salad, a morning-baked crusty loaf, and Florida-grown sweet corn on the cob with a touch of jalapeno butter. The large side-by-side fridge and freezer and pull-out pantry provide plenty of storage should there be any (unlikely) leftovers. Cleaning up is a breeze, thanks to your Gaggenau in-sink garbage disposal and zone dishwasher.

Sunday on Biscayne Bay

Get up early and grab your sunblock, a swimsuit, and a pair of shades for a trip out onto Biscayne Bay. On your way to the shore, stop at The Daily Creative Food Co for the Cuban Scramble of eggs, chorizo, and other savory sides, and be sure to grab a sack-lunch on your way out. The Charleston Post Pulled Pork will certainly travel well until hunger next strikes during your island adventure. Charter a craft and a captain for the day from Boat Miami Beach and enjoy waterskiing and tubing, or simply tour the open waters with a glass of champagne, while the licensed captain whisks you about the Bay. When you’re ready for a break, stop for lunch and a swim on Pace Picnic Island—that little grove of trees out in the middle of the bay that you see from your window at home. Part of the uninhabited Picnic Island chain, Pace Picnic Island is only accessible by sea. Sun yourself, open a cold one, and revel in your view of the Miami skyline across the water.

Unwind at Home, Miami-Style

Leave your swimsuit on, bypass your condo, and head straight to the fifth floor of Missoni Baia. There, you can relax in one of the daybeds next to the cantilevered pool, reading or taking in views of the bay. Kids can play in the nearby splash-pad play area or on the adjacent children’s lawn, and if you’ve got a little zip leftover from the afternoon’s waterskiing run, you can butterfly across the Olympic-sized lap pool. If not, take in a massage on the sixth floor at the in-house spa, complete with saunas, steam rooms, and whirlpool to finish working out any lingering knots in your muscles. Grill dinner on one of the outdoor barbecue and bar cabanas on the premises, or call Harry’s Pizzeria in the Design District for delivery of some serious wood oven pizza. If ever a guest doubts Miami’s pizza capabilities, you need only pass them a slice of the braised short rib, which was named one of America’s Best Pizzas by The Daily Meal.

Away from the many showy and sceney venues of South Beach—and near the new Biscayne Bay waterfront condos at Missoni Baia—several culinary innovations and fusion restaurants are causing a stir among locals and tourists alike. The following sites are all just a short drive or Uber ride away from these luxury East Edgewater condos, and they’re where you’ll want to be this summer.


MC Kitchen – 4141 NE 2nd Avenue

Aspen-born chef Dena Marino made a name for herself in Colorado, but in Miami’s Design District, she is making it household. Utilizing her Nonna’s authentic recipes and techniques, she has infused rustic Italian cuisine with a contemporary emphasis on farm-to-table ingredients, and the results must simply be tasted to be believed. Simple, flawlessly executed recipes bring the richness of the Italian flavor palette to life, but with a uniquely American sensibility – take, for example, the Tennessee Honey Glazed Eden Farm Pork Chop, accompanied by a ceci puree, and a mind-blowing hash composed of brussels sprouts, bacon, and apple. The Capellini con Bottarga is not to be missed, either, tossed in a unique sauce featuring oven-dried tomatoes, chilis, and orange zest.


Mandolin – 4312 NE 2nd Avenue


Aegean cuisine thrives on simplicity, and in this sense, fans of Missoni Baia’s clean and crisp architecture will find spiritual harmony in their experience at husband-and-wife team Ahmet Erkaya and Anastasia Koutsioukis’s Mandolin Aegean Bistro. Set in a restored 1930’s-era home, this restaurant offers a dining experience that transports you to another time and continent, both through its atmosphere and its menu. Try the manti dumplings, featuring minced lamb, garlic yogurt, Aleppo pepper (not too spicy, we promise!) and burnt butter, and make sure to pinch yourself – yes, you’re still in Miami!


Sugarcane – 3252 NE 1st Avenue

With its sister location being named one of Las Vegas’s best new restaurants in 2016, Sugarcane is known for its outstanding food selection and beautiful presentation. The dishes are served tapa-style, allowing patrons to try a selection of menu options. Guests are awed by the fun, festive, inviting entrance and surrounding atmosphere that includes both indoor and outdoor seating. With the add-on of spotless service throughout the dining experience, Sugarcane is certainly an easy spot to spend hours, sipping cocktails and people watching. When you stop in, do yourself a favor and try the Foie Gras and Duck Fried Rice!


NOA Café – 2711 NE 2nd  Avenue


This little gem of a restaurant is tucked away and can be easy to miss if it’s not on your radar. However, once you’re in the know, you’ll be glad NOA Café is just a short drive from Missoni Baia, with convenient street-side parking available right around the corner. A great find for healthy food that won’t leave you feeling overstuffed, the menu features an array of homemade Israeli dishes. With happy hour deals, outdoor seating, and the option to bring your dog along for the fun, it’s easy to understand how NOA has become a locals’ favorite. When you make the trek, say yes to indulgence and go for the flourless chocolate cake.


Mignonette Miami – 210 NE 18th  Street


Nestled on a corner in Downtown Miami, Mignonette is known for real food and real service. Offering fresh, carefully prepared dishes that are filled with flavor, Mignonette is where you go to splurge on some of the tastiest seafood in town. The expansive wine list includes a lot of lighter, lesser-known whites that are great to pair with the dishes, especially the seafood tower or clams casino. And there is ample parking if you choose to take a drive from the luxury residences at Missoni Baia.


Lagniappe – 3425 NE 2nd Avenue


Lagniappe is a fantastic little wine bar, filled with an eclectic array of sofas, tables, and chairs. As you enter, you’ll immediately see the stage where live musical acts jam out throughout the evening. Pick your own meat and cheese plate, order a bottle of your favorite vino, and enjoy the gorgeous patio that is illuminated with twinkling lights and decorated by lush vines. The attentive service, reasonable prices, and dog-friendly, relaxed atmosphere make this a fun spot to spend an evening with friends.
