▪ Mignonette, a popular oyster bar and seafood restaurant in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood, added a school of fish gilded in gold and copper to the new private dining area called “The Aquarium.” Artist Reed van Brunschot (www.reedvanbrunschot.com) used the materials to emulate fish under water, swimming in curved patterns and falling in and out of shadows. Just one of the 40 fish in the installation swims against the tide, “an independent thinker in the face of a collective consciousness,” she says. Mignonette is at 210 NE 18th St., Miami.
