My Miami: José Berardo

The Lisbon-based entrepreneur, philanthropist and art collector shares his favourite spots

José Berardo

One show I want to see:

I always visit the Gary Nader Art Centre, and it was a pleasure for me to show a selection of 100 works from my collection in his gallery this year—the exhibition was even extended due to its attendance levels.

A “secret” Florida art venue:

It was a surprise the first time I visited the Norton Museum of Art in Palm Beach. It has an outstanding permanent collection, featuring masterpieces of the 19th and 20th centuries, ­photography, painting and ­sculpture, American art, Chinese art and European art, as well as contemporary work. I highly ­recommend it.

My favourite place to eat:

Zuma is great. I always find a way to go there when I’m in town; not just because I’m a fan of modern Japanese-style dishes, but because the food is exquisite and it has a vibrant environment.

My favourite place for a drink:

The Setai is one of my favourites—it is located on the ­promenade that lines the beach. It has a calm, sophisticated and hushed atmosphere and, of course, a notable ­cocktail and wine list.

My favourite leisure activity:

I have to travel a lot, so when I have some time to relax in Miami, I go to the spa at the Four Seasons hotel.
