There's more to Art Basel than scores of showcases, gallery-goers, and critics. The famed week brings a slew of food-centric specials to Miami, including Michelle Bernstein's Michy's and Garden Cafe, Hive Art Village & Lounge, and a collaboration between Shake Shack and Harry's Pizzeria.

The Burger Beast Museum opens its doors for the first time this Friday too. Curated by Sef “Burger Beast” Gonzalez, the 1,500-square-foot space inside Magic City Casino houses a collection of Gonzalez’s fast-food and restaurant memorabilia, with an emphasis on all things meaty.

The James Beard Award winner returns to Miami Beach this week to launch two pop-up restaurants during Art Basel.
