Blog: A Weekend at Missoni Baia

Posted 12.10.2018

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.
