Basel Grub for a pretty penny.

Art Basel opened the flood gates to the public yesterday and all eyes are on Miami Beach. But what happens once you're inside the Convention Center and feeling a little peckish? You get slammed with inflated prices for food and drink..

For those of us not holding VIP or press passes, tickets aren't cheap. And once you're inside walking around and getting thirsty, you must pay for $7 beers, and even a $20 glass of Ruinart Blanc de Blanc champagne. Say you want four chocolate-covered strawberries? It'll cost you $8!

So maybe you are reconsidering the drinks and fruits. Those Spicy Salmon Rolls look good, but they will run you $12 for a container.

Our advice: Eat beforehand, far away from the Convention Center area.
