Vagabond Restaurant in MiMo: Art Is an Integral Part of the Menu

The Vagabond Hotel's spectacular renovation will come full circle when the Vagabond Restaurant opens next month, just in time for Art Basel.

Restaurant partners Alvaro Perez, Chris Wang, and chef Alex Chang are nearing completion on the space, which will incorporate art and the restaurant's outdoor space with chef Chang's cuisine. Chang found fame when his underground restaurant at an on-campus apartment at the University of Southern California was made into a documentary, Paladar, by filmmaker Gil Freston.
