    NUMBERS GAME

    One of Dallas’s coolest designer boutiques debuts in Miami’s Little River district March 16. Co-founded by Kristen Cole (pictured), Tenoversix carries coveted women’s and men’s fashions and lifestyle items from furniture to books in a gallery setting. A game changer for the city’s style scene, its selection includes Rodarte, Rachel Comey, VisVim, Zero + Maria Cornejo, Eckhaus Latta, A Détacher, Simon Miller, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Clergerie, Annie Costello Brown, Sophie Buhai, Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Concrete Cat, B.

    ADDING VALUE

    NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale celebrates its 60th anniversary with a shopping spree. New acquisitions fit within the museum’s ongoing themes for its permanent collection of 7,000 artworks. Glenn Ligon’s neon sculpture (pictured) references a 19th-century carte-de-visite portrait of former slave and abolitionist Sojourner Truth. A ceramic sculpture by Theaster Gates, “Reflection Piece,” also links to African-American history through combining heritage crafts like African masks and stoneware by former slave Dave the Potter. Zanele Muholi’s photograph depicts Dutch colonialism in her native South Africa. Collector Stéphane Janssen’s gifts by Danish artist Serge Vandercam add to the museum’s renowned Cobra collection of post-war art from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. An aluminum plaque with text by Jenny Holzer recognizes the Pictures Generation movement of the Sixties and Seventies, another museum focus.

    HIDEN GEM

    Azabu in Miami Beach isn’t the only newcomer with a secret sushi den for meticulously prepared omakase. Hiden, which recently opened in Wynwood, truly lives up to its name by disguising itself inside a casual taco shop and requiring an access code provided through the Tock reservation app. A hip restaurant group from Mexico City (Sushi Kyo, Rokai) collaborated with the San Diego-based Taco Stand to open the intimate sushi counter here. They source local seafood and import more unusual species from Tsukiji fish market in Japan for veteran sushi chefs to craft sashimi, nigiri and other authentic courses. Dishes range from tempura scallops to thinly sliced, broth-blanched octopus atop rice. They go beyond traditional Japanese beverages, too, with a nice list of Champagnes and natural wines.
