Clive's Scores at Basel

One of the unheralded winners of the recently concluded Art Basel was Clive's Café, (2880 No. Miami Ave. and 890 NW 2nd Ave.). The Wynwood location, generally closed for weekend nights, stayed open for the hipster crowd and was jammed. Best option was the jerk chicken ($7.50) - finest we've ever tasted in Miami and served fresh off the grill. At $8.50, the curry goat rocked, too.  So are they thinking about catering to the art walk crowd this weekend, too? "Things change fast around here," says owner Pearline Murray.
