Miami City Ballet’s staging of “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” has always been a favorite of mine, especially with custom costumes and sets by Ruben and Isabel Toledo.

Leave it to Miami to continue its love affair with food. This flurry of newcomers with serious culinary chops also offers outdoor seating. Will it be Basque cuisine at the Rubell Museum’s onsite eatery, Leku, or Mamey’s modern Caribbean from the same visionary behind Ghee Indian Kitchen?
