eye on style

Even the off-thewall political thriller on ABC, you’ve probably heard about E White House, escalating body count, it. Its wayward social moralizing and “viewer-discretion” warnings have made it the rare network drama to cultivate a growing audience. “One of the things I like most about the success of this show is that it just caught on like a brushfire,” says star Tony Goldwyn, who was also director of the South Florida serial-killer series, Dexter.



ven if you’re not watching Scandal, the off-the-wall political thriller on ABC, you’ve probably heard about it. Its wayward White House, bloody body count, social moralizing and “viewer-discretion” warnings have made it the rare network drama to cultivate a growing audience. On Thursday nights when new episodes air, the show generates so much social chatter among real-time viewers it tends to dominate Twitter’s entire list of Top U.S. Trends. That’s about 150,000 to 200,000 tweets per show. Like the other ABC shows from screenwriter/creator Shonda Rhimes (Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy), Scandal features a large, ethnically diverse cast – and characters who don’t necessarily behave within the usual broadcast parameters. Even the show’s heroes do some pretty ugly things. They scrub murder scenes, kill judges, have sex at church. But unlike Rhimes’ other shows, Scandal makes much less attempt to redeem them.

with the Editor Publisher

For Mother’s days

My mom is calling. “Did you remember to fix the mistake in your editor’s letter?’’ she says, before anything else. “The one where you used the last name of the woman you were writing about but not her first name?’’ “Uh,” I say, shifting uncomfortably, “I didn’t really do that, did I?” “Yes,” she says. “That was pretty silly.’’ “Uh,” I say. Fortunately, she can’t see me turning red. “Yes, that was pretty silly.’’ There are many people behind the scenes at City & Shore. I will eventually write a letter about each of them, about how grateful I am for the contributions they make to bring the magazine to you each month. But today, seven short shopping days from Mother’s Day, I’m writing about how grateful I am for the one who’s helped me the longest. My mom. My mom, who called after reading one of my letters a couple of years ago and asked if I’d meant to write Sedona instead of Sonoma. “Aggggh,” I said. “Yes.’’ My mom, who called after reading the cover of the magazine a few months later and asked if I’d meant to write Sizzling instead of Sizzing. “Yes,’’ I said. “Aggggh.’’ “Your mother reviewed your latest article,” says my dad, my mom’s messenger. “She thinks the paragraph beginning, ‘At lunch overlooking...’ was a bit rambling. Maybe you could read it over again and see if it could be smoothed out.” “Well, ah, you know,” I say. “She’s right.” Mom is always right. My mom writes me a lot of letters and clips stories she thinks might be interesting to me, but she has no formal journalism experience or training. She’s just watching out for me, the way she has through birth, braces, Boy Scouts, broken hearts, broke bank accounts and fender benders. (I’m going to hear from Mom about all the B’s in that sentence.) We only get one Mom in life. We should all be so lucky to have one who watches out for us so well, and for so long. About a year ago, I got a letter from the Society of Professional Journalists that my editor’s letters had won first place in statewide competition. “We won!” I said, sharing the news with Mom, like I did when I made Eagle Scout, got my braces off, found true love, cashed my first paycheck, bent my first fender (instead of hers). “That’s nice,’’ she said, “But in the last paragraph of your next letter, I wondered if you should drop the ‘And I watch as’ and replace it with, ‘He drives past, etc…’ ” “Well, ah, you know,” I say. “You're right.” I’m happy my mom’s still watching out for me. I’d like to send her some of the jewelry we write about on pg. 81, or pick out something nice for her from among our Mother’s Day Giving guide, pg. 34, or take her to one of our trendsetting restaurants, pg. 101, or just sit with her and dish about ABC’s Scandal, pg. 74. But I’ll probably just send her a letter, with love. —Mark Gauert,

New Jazziz Nightlife in Mizner Park

JAZZ YOU LIKE IT Boca Raton’s new Jazziz Nightlife hits the bullseye as a super-styled supper club – just don’t call it a jazz club BY GREG CARANNANTE Funny thing about Boca’s new club, Jazziz Nightlife – it isn’t what it iz.

“This is not a jazz club,” says entrepreneur-impresario Michael Fagien. It is, however, a super-styled supper club and, if he has his way, the Mizner Park venue will become a South Florida mecca for sophisticated music accompanied by fine dining. The club, which opened in April, borrows on the caché of Fagien’s national magazine, Jazziz – so yes, there will be jazz. But much more. Like, Molly Ringwald (yes, Pretty in Pink). Like, Jeff Bridges. Like Gino Vannelli, whose two pre-opening concerts in March had guests raving – among them guitar legend Al Di Meola, who Fagien says “is going around telling people that this is the best club in America.” That’s partly because the blow-you-away sound and light system brings the impact of a concert stage smack into the dining room, but it also has something to do with Fagien’s overall concept. “We’re trying to do something that’s really never been done before,” he says. “Jazz has a relatively small audience, and we know that.” He should know – he has published Jazziz since 1983. “So the model for the magazine and for Jazziz Nightlife has always been: How do we appeal to a much larger audience using jazz –

in the city Michael Fagien

maybe not only jazz – without cramming it down their throat and giving customers something that they say, ‘That’s really cool, I’d love to get some of that.’ ” And that is “the wow factor,” which Fagien says he and his six partners shot for in the music, the cuisine and the ambience. Well, bullseye! The design is invitingly elegant, also embracing casual outdoor dining (the burgers and pizza – primo!), private enclaves like the Ella Room, a separate cigar and piano bar, and a distinctive champagne and caviar bar: “We are the first place in Florida,” he boasts, “with this machine that can actually dispense $500 bottles of champagne by the glass.” Fagien, 56, also plans to book acts in an intimate theater upstairs as well as up the street at the Mizner amphitheater – and to take the Jazziz Nightlife concept national. “We spent more money on our sound and lighting than most spend on their whole restaurant,” he says. “When Gino walked in he said, ‘My God, I can’t believe the sound coming off the stage!’ Now I have other artists calling me up, like Herbie Hancock, saying, ‘When are you gonna book me?’ I’ve got to figure out where to put them in the schedule – that’s a great problem to have.”

Jazziz Nightlife, 200 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, 561-300-0732, Scheduled performances include Nicole Henry, May 9; Yellowjackets, May 22-23; Larry Carlton, May 29-30; Bobby Caldwell, June 5-6; and Kevin Eubanks, June 26-27.

the tv room

You only think there’s nothing on Desperately waiting for the next episode of Breaking Bad, Homeland, even Elementary? Sitting there in front of your wonderful new TV system, maybe even in a home theater lair, daunted by the thousands of entries on Netflix or Hulu? Afraid you’ll pick a clunker? A gem that no one you know has ever heard of is currently available, and once you take the plunge, it’s hard to get out. With all the style and tension of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo comes a series set in Stockholm made by the producers of the Millennium Trilogy. More picturesque and less gloomy does not mean less taut for this newsroom/crime drama named for its intrepid hero, Annika Bengzton: Crime Reporter. A young mother of two has to juggle family life and her elegant man with the demands of her job, which can send her to grisly scenes at a moment’s notice. The viewer quickly becomes absorbed by both the personal and professional storylines. Played by Malin Crépin, Annika is imbued with a wicked wit, keen investigative reporting sense and an intense beauty that is neither plastic nor too glamorous. (For me, she’s a Scandinavian version of the traitorous wife in The Americans.) The newsroom surrounding her has a bunch of eccentric but believable characters, played by notable Swedish actors. Adapted from the novels of Liza Marklund, six crime films in the 2012 series are now available for instant viewing. The climate may be chilly, but this crime drama sizzles. —John Dolen Online at Another hidden gem

Going Hollywood

Architect Joseph Keller’s design is turning a former pottery studio into Cinema ParadisoHollywood.

Cinema Paradiso satellite gears up for summer opening Dinner in downtown Hollywood is about to become dinner

and a movie. When Cinema Paradiso-Hollywood opens this summer in a renovated pottery studio, it will provide another draw for the shopping, dining, arts and entertainment district. “I’m just so excited. It’s a perfect fit,” says Jorge Camejo, executive director of Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency, which has been working on the cinema idea for several years. “Downtown Hollywood has a unique charm. It’s a historic downtown,” he says. Indeed, the city was envisioned by developer Joseph W. Young in the 1920s as a “Dream city in Florida,” with wide, tree-lined boulevards punctuated by park circles and a walkway along the beach. “You don’t feel like you’re at another strip mall here,” Camejo says. “The cinema will accentuate the unique quality of downtown Hollywood.” Gregory von Hausch says the opening of the theater will lengthen the reach of the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. (The original Cinema Paradiso is in downtown Fort Lauderdale.) “Hollywood will help greatly to expand our base, increase memberships, attract new sponsors and provide easier access for patrons to attend,” says von Hausch, president and CEO of FLIFF. In addition to showing films, the theater will feature music performances and comedy nights, he says. Cinema Paradiso-Hollywood will have just under 100 seats with a concession stand, a bar and a $35,000 digital projector – but that’s just a beginning, according to supporters. Hollywood attorney Alan Koslow, the chair of the Broward County Film Society (FLIFF), has grand plans for the theater. “We’re going to start out intimate, and when we see that it’s a success, we’re going to expand,” he says. Interest in the theater has been overwhelming, Koslow says, with fundraising efforts generating more than half the $125,000 goal in only the first six weeks. The Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency has been instrumental, pledging $30,000, among other funds, for the purchase of tickets to supply to area hotels for guests. —Elizabeth Rahe Cinema Paradiso-Hollywood, 2008 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, opening this summer,

Over the years, the Watch Fair at Levinson Jewelers in Fort Lauderdale has grown from a local show of timepieces into a most-watched event. “We have been having our Watch Fair for 15 years,” says Mark Levinson, who with his wife, Robin, owns Levinson Jewelers on Las Olas Boulevard. “The original goal was to have a trunk show, but on a different level than a typical show — more like an exhibition — and to be the first to present to our clients the newest and greatest timepieces being produced internationally.” The Levinsons will host this year’s Watch Fair, showcasing the latest timepieces and collections from around the world, on May 18. The free event, open to the public, will also be attended by special guests NFL Hall of Famer Dan Marino and Swiss watchmaker Franck Muller, co-founder of the Geneva-based design and manufacturing firm bearing his name. This year’s event will feature timepieces ranging from $500 to Franck Muller more than $1 million from over 28 different watchmakers, including Panerai, IWC, Piaget, Bulgari, Franck Muller, Dior, Corum, Ernst Benz, Hublot and more. Guests will also have an opportunity to meet the “Master of Complications,” Franck Muller, who will be flying in from Geneva for the event and will meet guests between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and answer questions about watchmaking.” For the first time, the event also will showcase a collection of all of the Franck Muller brands. “We are very excited to be able to have our co-founder Franck Muller with us this year,” says Ron Jackson, president of Franck Muller Group USA in New York. “We have many options within the Franck Muller brand, ranging from beautiful ladies diamond watches up to the most advanced mechanical complications, such as our Giga and Thunderbolt Tourbillon and other complications.” –Robyn A. Friedman Levinson Jewelers Annual Watch Fair, 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 18 at Levinson Jewelers, 888 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. For more information, call 954-4628880 or visit

For real estate professionals – or anyone facing a reversal of fortune – a leap of faith just may be the right move


The Art of Reinvention

It’s been more than five years since the country saw the beginning of the end of the real estate boom. Before that, South Floridians who weren’t already either Realtors or mortgage brokers were flocking to get their licenses and preparing to jump on the bandwagon, with visions of dollar signs dancing in their heads. Then, even faster than it rose, the market came tumbling down. In any business, it’s difficult to go from enjoying the fruits of prosperity to feeling like it may be time to reconsider your options. And according to business coach Margaret Moczkowski, there are a few: Stay the course. In other words, wait it out — if you can afford it. You have to know what you’ll be earning and what you need to live on until things turn around — if they turn around. Change your situation. While you can’t change the market, you can implement new strategies; for example, changing your focus to short sales. Leave the profession. If there’s a different job you’ve always thought you’d enjoy, this may be the time to open that door and walk through it. For former South Florida real estate professional Gregory Ashe, who had been riding high buying land and reselling it to developers until the market started going south, it was time to make the leap to something new. “I just couldn’t make money anymore,” he says. “I had put a blind eye to what was going on even though I saw it coming.” Ashe was walking to his car on his final day of work when the owner of the internet marketing firm next door, Headstrong Media, caught him in the parking lot and offered him a position. Intrigued, he accepted – and it turned out that he loved the job. “I was so enthused by capturing data on consumers and how you can apply that to businesses, and I realized this is something that can never really die. There will always be businesses and they’ll always need to advertise.” Eventually, he became the owner of Headstrong Marketing, and today, at 31, he is the COO of M1 in Fort Lauderdale, a data collection and distribution firm with annual revenue of $10 million. If Ashe had to give one piece of advice to professionals flailing in real estate or any other profession, it would be this: the harder you work, the luckier you get. “The only way to get new opportunities is to meet new people, and the harder you work, the more people you meet,” he says.

Ingrid Hoffmann

Fresh and D’Lite-ful

Ingrid Hoffmann shares recipes for a balanced life Ingrid Hoffmann’s obsession with food led to a multimedia foodie career, including hosting the Cooking Channel’s Simply Delicioso and Univision’s Delicioso. It also led her to fad diets, as she tried to control the effects of that obsession on her petite frame. When she was diagnosed with a chronic inflammatory condition, she learned some of her eating habits were having a detrimental effect on her health. “I was determined to find a new approach and change my lifestyle rather than going back to dieting and depriving myself,” she says. The result of her quest is revealed in her second book, Latin D’Lite: Delicious Latin Recipes with a Healthy Twist (Penguin, 2013), published in English and Spanish. Her tips and 150-plus recipes reveal the way Hoffmann eats at home – close-to-nature foods in lighterthan-tradition preparations, punched up with herbs, spices, chiles and Latin accents. Salt-and-vinegar roasted potatoes, for instance, get

on the shore a chipotle kick. Cumin-and-yogurt roasted turkey breast is accentuated with a tamarindginger sauce. Shrimp and mango adobado salad becomes a riot of color and flavor with roasted corn avocado salsa. Beginning with a roundup of ingredients and substitutions, she shares tips and recipes for all the courses from appetizers and snacks through desserts and cocktails. Each chapter also includes a splurge recipe, “because I’m a firm believer that we should be allowed to eat whatever we want in moderation,” she says. So in addition to the light and tasty corn-chile-crusted tilapia with banana curry sauce, look for rich and juicy Latin burgers with caramelized onion and jalapeño relish and red pepper mayonnaise. “If I’m going to eat a burger, it had better be worth it,” she says. —Elizabeth Rahe

Toyota’s magic carpet ride The neighbors might not notice your Avalon, but it still could be your favorite car It’s early for ladies’ night at YOLO on Las Olas, and there’s already a pair of Porsches out front. The valet reluctantly agrees to park my borrowed Toyota Avalon next to them. “But you have to move it soon,” he warns. The Avalon’s color is called “cypress pearl,” and it’s a fairly stunning hunter green that picks up the late afternoon light. The car is curvy, with bulges by the back wheels that look like muscled shoulders. A stylish crease runs across the doors like pleated tuxedo pants. The back end is Aston Martin rounded, and the front has a grille that glows with chrome accents. “The inside is amazing,” the valet concedes. “It’s just like driving a Lexus.” He’s right. Nearly every surface is covered in a leather-like material with attractive stitching and three matching colors. But then there’s this: As the Avalon sat there – a redesigned and brand new car – the YOLO crowd passed casually by. Nobody stopped to peek inside. Not a one noticed the metallic paint shining in the sun. This is a car that won’t attract the attention of your neighbors. Your boss won’t wonder if he’s paying you too much. For those who don’t care about impressing on ladies’ night, they will get a spectacular car. This is a car so well engineered that, decades from now, you will spot an Avalon and wonder if it’s the one you bought and sold years ago. It became evident that the Toyota factory in Kentucky put together a brilliant car from my first zip onto the highway. The Avalon’s 268 horsepower engine is a potent force. It doesn’t work hard speeding onto I-95. And it will get 25 mpg doing it (40 in the hybrid), impressive for a large sedan. At a cruise, the Avalon shines. The engine is noiseless at 80 mph, the electronic tachometer sitting as if the car were at idle. The cabin is spacious, with a good two inches on either side of my leg. The seats, as adjustable as a Craftmatic bed, are so big they’re reminiscent of the


benches in the Buicks my grandparents used to drive. That Buick comparison is an important one, because it’s clear Toyota was going for that market with its flagship sedan. It’s true that the Avalon drifts along, bouncing gently, like a magic carpet gliding on a soft breeze. Take the Avalon over speed bumps and railroad tracks and all you feel is a gentle up, a gentle down. Back in my driveway during a weekend test drive, though, it sat out front without fanfare, without a single neighbor coming by to ask about it. Same thing at Publix and Home Depot. Then I put it up front at a beach parking lot Sunday morning, and suddenly the Avalon seemed like a beauty queen. Tourists asked questions. A guy in a limo-length Lexus LS asked how much it cost. He was blown away to learn the bargain price of $33,195 – he could have bought three Avalons instead. Next came a friendly Canadian with a French accent. He was eyeing the Avalon from a block away. He had just driven the wife down from Montreal in a Camry. “Is that the new Avalon?” he asked. “It is very nice.” He peeked inside at the interior, tan and black and brown, matching like a runway model. “I could be very comfortable in this.” And he’s right. He might just find the Avalon is a nearperfect car, as long as he doesn’t care about impressing the neighbors. — Eric Barton Toyota Avalon: For local dealers, see

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and, you’re due for a celebration. We recommend leaving this list out where the Dads in your life can see it, and letting them do the rest. Here are seven great ways they can help you feel special: Eat Out. We would never turn down a great meal, especially one cooked by someone else. Head to Steak 954 for a carnivorous feast at the W Hotel Fort Lauderdale. The Stephen Starr restaurant serves up all the steakhouse classics – think East and West Coast oysters, beef tartare, dry-aged New York strip and creamed spinach. Don’t leave without considering the lobster bisque, miso-glazed black cod and truffle French fries. Ask about the made-to-order cookies for dessert, too. They are as good as Mom makes. (Except you won’t have to).Steak 954 at the W Fort Lauderdale: 401 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954-414-8333.

Get Fit. After the cookies, tighten and atone with a month (or 12) of Fly Boca Plus+ at Flywheel Boca. The package grants you unlimited Flywheel rides and FlyBarre classes. Sweat off dessert with 45 minutes of spinning in Flywheel then head to FlyBarre for toning and tightening. Odds are you’ll prefer one to the other, but a month of both should deliver noticeable results. Flywheel Boca: 2200 Glades Road, Boca Raton, 561368-3246.

Bloom Big. Give yourself – and your better half - a gift that keeps on giving with a year of roses from Field of Flowers. Every four weeks for 12 glorious months, a beautiful bounty of flowers will arrive on your doorstep. Instant smiles and beauty – selected, arranged and delivered by someone else. Prep for classic red, sunny mini yellows and a cheery springtime assortment. Field of Flowers’ rose arrangements by the month: 800-963-7374, Go Geek. A great gadget can be hard to find. Invest in an iPad Mini and it will quickly become your favorite device. Check email, read a book or magazine, catch up on celeb gossip, watch a movie with a flick of your finger. The mini is small and sleek and fits perfectly into your purse. To really treat yourself, buy two – one for you and one for everyone else in your home. iPad Mini, Win (Potentially) Big.

Leverage a love of Facebook and jewelry to win a $2,500 necklace via Raymond Lee Jewelers’ Mother’s Day contest. Post photos of yourself (or another woman you’d like to nominate), add a note about why you’re special and get everyone you know to “Like” the photo. Even better – get your husband to do all the work! The big winner will take home a 14-kt. white gold diamond circle pendant, valued at $2,495. Contest ends May 12.

urricane Andrew changed the way we look at windows. Since that devastating storm in 1992, South Florida building codes have been revised to require hurricane shutters or storm-impact products whenever we change windows or exterior doors. No worry. The designs can be very fashionable - and they are available in any style from contemporary to classic. Impact-resistant glass is also a crime deterrent. “Burglars cannot break the glass,” says Hillary Bale, vice president of the Custom Door Shop in Delray Beach. “Even the fire department had to be trained to saw into the concrete around the door to open it.” Mediterranean magic

Jeld-Wen’s Aurora double front door fits right in with the Mediterraneanstyle architecture so prevalent in South Florida. The doors may look like wood but they are actually custom Fiberglass. The architecturally inspired designs in this collection are available with decorative metal accents and coordinating sidelights and transoms. Available at Pearce Windows & Doors, 170 Commerce Road, Boynton Beach, 561732-1127,; WindowMan of South Florida, 3076 NE 12th Terr., Oakland Park, 954946-1553,


Stormwatch style The best way to protect your home from hurricanes when you’re away and can’t close the shutters is to replace windows with impact-resistant glass. Anderson’s Stormwatch protection windows and doors are available in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes. The Perma-Shield exterior cladding system resists the effects of salt water and sea air without peeling, chipping or corroding. You can also opt for corrosion-resistant hardware, especially important for homes near or on the beach.

Mike Conville wanted to keep the bed he loved and add the new Asian paintings above it. Designer Gil Walsh didn’t think it would work because the art was too big, but finally she agreed it looked great.

Imagine this: The house

or condo you bought comes ready with all the furniture, accessories, towels, linens, pots and pans in the styles you prefer. All you need to move in is your toothbrush and wardrobe. Welcome to “turnkey” design — the perfect solution for those with the money but not the time. Typically in South Florida it’s done for those moving in from out of state, but it can also be the best solution for busy executives. How many details the designer provides varies with the client. These three examples run the gamut from snowbirds trading up to a larger home in Florida to clients moving from homes to condos.

DESIGNER: Gil Walsh, Gil Walsh Interiors, West Palm Beach PHOTOGRAPHER: Daniel Newcomb Mike Conville, president of Beacon Construction Group in North Palm Beach, is no stranger to turnkey design. He’s used to working with a team of designers and architects to create the concept for snowbird clients. Conville used his experiences in the design of his new 3,500-square-foot condo at the Esplanade Grande in West Palm Beach with the help of interior designer Gil Walsh. “I was too busy with so many projects,” Conville says. “We had a relationship because she has done jobs for me. She knew my aesthetic. She would send me [product information sheets] and she would go shopping for the furniture and all the accessories. I went shopping with her a couple of times. We didn’t return much – maybe three items.” Conville describes himself as “a New England guy who likes homey with a little edge.” He wanted Walsh to add a little more edginess to his conservative style. For example, she suggested building a stand for his coral art. The condo design was a mix of high and low – from Ralph Lauren pendants in the kitchen to a mirror in the dining room from Z Gallerie. He found some of the pieces himself, such as the large oil painting of Venice in the dining room. He also found glassware, which Walsh placed on the bar shelves so they were ready when he moved in. Walsh says the project was a team effort. When Conville purchased the condo, it was sterile with no architectural detail. He built cabinetry in his library/ office, separated the hallway between the great room and master bedroom with a built-out casing an out casing and created a bar in the great room with a large TV built into the two-way mirror. “We put the style together and our thoughts together,” Walsh says. “He showed me photos of what he liked and we talked about scale and the location of the furnishings. That is why it turned out so well and why he is so happy. He can live here and eventually may sell it. It is a great look and will sell.” In the master bedroom, Conville wanted to use his own bed and night tables, which Walsh thought he should replace. They went shopping together and found new end tables and they visited an Asian gallery where he fell in love with a three-panel painting, She told him the art wouldn’t work with his bed because it was too big. He replied, “You are going to love them. I know it is going to work.” “Sure enough, part of them are hidden, but it looks great,” she says.

Clockwise: Designer Patty Gilbert added interest to the wall of the den with grass cloth and molding. The foyer has a circular motif on the ceiling inspired by a California hotel. Using the colors in the room, a custom wool rug was designed with a floral motif. A sculpture wasn’t tall enough so a wooden pedestal was created to bring it more in scale with the high ceilings.

DESIGNER: Patty Gilbert of Brown’s Interior Design, Boca Raton PHOTOGRAPHER: Ed Butera Patty Gilbert’s clients, former snowbirds from Connecticut, bought a home in Delaire Country Club in Delray Beach a decade ago. After the husband retired, they traded their smaller home for a larger one they built in the same development. “The only thing that makes a turnkey difficult is the client is not here all the time,” Gilbert says, noting Brown’s does a lot of designs for clients who are out of town. “We really have to get a lot of information up front – how they live, how they want to use the home. In this case, it made my job easy because I had done a home for them already and knew what they wanted.” The construction took more than a year and the wife flew into town a few times to pick out construction details, but she left Gilbert on her own to decide the furnishings. Everything was new except for the two sofas and Christopher Guy mirror in the den that were in their smaller Delaire home. Gilbert, inspired by a ceiling she saw in a California hotel, designed a creative focal point in the foyer. The circles were built in drywall and painted a deep tan in the center to contrast with the off-white ceiling. The same circular motif was created in a mosaic on the floor. The great room, which has a 25-foot-high ceiling, was brought down more to scale with a deep cornice in brown fabric that matched the wing chairs. Gilbert purchased a metal sculpture that needed more height so she asked her cabinetmaker to create a pedestal. The clients are very social and entertain a lot at home so the loggia was created with plenty of space for eating and dining, including a square table that seats eight and a conversation area. The outdoor kitchen, which is part of the space, has a gas grill and room for storage. “We have a lot of clients coming down here from the north,” she says. “They can’t stay so we do everything from beginning to end, Very often we will have a client shop up north for sheets and towels and we send everything to our warehouse or we will do it and they don’t have to worry. Then they can just move in.”

A new treatment option for men diagnosed with prostate cancer that does not involve anesthesia or cutting BY NANCY MCVICAR

Men diagnosed with prostate cancer have almost a dozen different choices of treatment, says Dr. Srinath Sundararaman, director of radiation oncology at Memorial Cancer Institute in Pembroke Pines, from removal of the gland surgically to a variety of less invasive procedures. One of the newer options and least invasive involves a technique called CyberKnife robotic radiosurgery which requires no anesthesia or cutting. “Men have chosen external beam radiation because it’s not invasive, and it has become very good, very precise over the last decade,” he says. But this approach, called IMRT, usually requires the patient to go for treatment five days a week for up to eight weeks. CyberKnife can achieve similar results with a fraction of the time commitment: five days of 70 to 90 minutes duration each day, Sundararaman says. CyberKnife uses a combination of image-guided cameras, robotic technology and computers to concentrate radiation on the diseased gland while limiting exposure to healthy tissue. During the treatment, the CyberKnife is able to track any movement of the prostate gland caused by air passing through the rectum or the bladder filling so the radiation is confined to the target area and spares healthy tissue around it. “Gold markers are placed into the prostate as surrogates and they exactly tell us where the prostate is, and if it moves, the machine moves with it,” Sundararaman says. “The machine looks every three seconds, and if the gland has moved, it makes the adjustment.” The best candidate for the procedure is someone considered a low-risk patient based on his PSA (a blood test that measures


health_x.indd 68

prostate-specific antigen) and Gleason scores, markers of the aggressiveness of the disease, stage, and other prognostic factors. “In prostate cancer, we’re talking less about stage and more about risk based on what the pathologist tells us about how angry the cells are. So a person considered low risk is an ideal candidate,” he says. Because the technique is relatively new, several thousand cases compared with tens of thousands of cases treated with older technologies, doctors who use CyberKnife include their cases in a national registry. In Florida, the Medicare intermediary does not reimburse for CyberKnife treatment for prostate cancer, Sundararaman says, even though Medicare does cover it in other states, including California and New York. As a result, some men on Medicare opt for the eight-week external beam radiation treatment instead because it is covered. One goal of the registry, Sundararaman says, is to show how effective the treatment is compared with other treatments. After the treatment, patients are monitored at intervals by testing their PSA levels to make sure there is no recurrence. “We want eight to 10 years of data eventually,” he says, and about seven years worth has been collected. “And we’ve seen the PSA control is excellent.” “The side effects profile is extremely low,” he says. “Patients may experience some frequency of urine, at first, rarely burning, but that should subside within a month at most. This treatment is not going to hurt the quality of life. The quality of orgasm is not changed as a result of this.” ●

ven if you’re not watching Scandal, the offthe-wall political thriller on ABC, you’ve probably heard about it. “One of the things I like most about the success of this show is that it just caught on like a brushfire,” says star Tony Goldwyn, who was also director of the South Florida serial-killer series, Dexter. We catch up with Goldwyn this issue just as the series is building to its finale, on May 16. Also in this issue, Fashion & Style Director Elyse Ranart sizes up bridal wear and jewelry for The Big Day, we check into some quaint and comfortable boutique hotels, and Fine Dining writer Rebecca Cahilly leads a tour of some relatively new establishments that already are setting trends.

Affairs OF STATE

TV’s Scandalous new President Tony Goldwyn on romance, justice, the power of social media and why Dexter really left Miami BY DEBORAH WILKER


ven if you’re not watching Scandal, the off-the-wall political thriller on ABC, you’ve probably heard about it. Its wayward White House, escalating body count, social moralizing and “viewer-discretion” warnings have made it the rare network drama to cultivate a growing audience. On Thursday nights when new episodes air, the show generates so much social chatter among real-time viewers it tends to dominate Twitter’s entire list of Top U.S. Trends. That’s about 150,000 to 200,000 tweets per show. Like the other ABC shows from screenwriter/creator Shonda Rhimes (Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy), Scandal features a large, ethnically diverse cast – and characters who don’t necessarily behave within the usual broadcast parameters. Even the show’s heroes do some pretty ugly things. They scrub murder scenes, kill judges, have sex in closets. But unlike Rhimes’ other shows, Scandal makes much less attempt to redeem them.



Tony Goldwyn


“Audiences have a much bigger appetite for darker behavior,” says Tony Goldwyn, who stars as President Fitzgerald Grant. “They expect it now. They don’t want things sanitized.” That Goldwyn, 52, became the leading man in all this was a bit of a surprise to him. Not because he’s not dashing and presidential. But he’d been devoting much of his time in recent years to directing. From making the rounds of important film festivals with Hilary Swank, to suddenly shirtless in primetime wasn’t precisely in his plans. Among the dozens of TV shows he’s directed is the Miami serial-killer series, Dexter, produced for Showtime by his older brother John. His other directorial efforts include Justified, Damages, The L Word, Without A Trace, Law & Order, the Diane Lane movie A Walk On The Moon, and early episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. It was while he was directing Grey’s nine years ago that Scandal mastermind Rhimes saw something in him. “Shonda has this ability to see the potential in an actor that’s never been shown before. She seems to understand me as an actor better than I do.” Yet when we caught up with Goldwyn last month he was actually back behind the camera again – directing Scandal no less – shepherding one of the series’ three, high-stakes season-ending episodes airing this month. Making time for a few questions he tells us why he thinks Scandal hits a nerve, how he handles those crazy love scenes with co-star Kerry Washington, what’s the real reason they don’t shoot Dexter in Miami anymore – and does he really write all his own tweets?



City & Shore: What is it about this show? Why are people so fascinated? Tony Goldwyn: Olivia and Fitz are in the kind of affair that makes everyone really uncomfortable. I don’t know that 10 years ago, or even five years ago on network television, you could have gotten away with an affair like this – that I’m the President and I’m married and it’s adulterous. We take the sentiment out of things. We’re not afraid to be unlikable. C&S: You weren’t worried when you learned your character wouldn’t just be flawed, but was in fact going to murder a Supreme Court judge? TG: No I wasn’t. It’s really a dream for an actor to play a character where you get to swing 180 degrees. I was a little concerned at first because I wasn’t so interested in him only as a philanderer. Ultimately I knew it would be messy and complicated and very interesting. C&S: But can the show continue to make serious statements about race and politics and social justice when the behavior is so bad? TG: I think so. Scandal is unique because it really mushes genres. Competition [from cable] has been very good for the creative community because it pressures the broadcast networks to be more adventurous. The sex in the closet – it wasn’t very graphic, but I agree it was pretty out there. C&S: This stuff could not be comfortable to shoot. TG: It’s just one of those weird things you have to do for your job. The key to it, if you’re working with another good actor – you can just throw yourself into it and not feel selfconscious. Kerry [Washington] and I have a lot of mutual trust. I think it’s harder for Kerry – harder for women. They do feel more exposed. C&S: How do you feel when you see it? Do you actually watch the show? Does your wife?

ON TV Scandal, starring Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Columbus Short, Guillermo Diaz, Jeff Perry, Kate Burton, Darby Stanchfield and Katie Lowes, airs Thursday at 10 p.m. on ABC. The show’s season finale is May 16th.

The series stars Columbus Short as Harrison Wright, Katie Lowes as Quinn Perkins, Guillermo Diaz as Huck, Darby Stanchfield as Abby Whelan, Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, Joshua Malina as David Rosen, Jeff Perry as Cyrus Beene, Bellamy Young as First Lady Mellie Grant and Goldwyn as the President.

TG: I do watch. I think it’s really fun. Our cast gets together, we watch together. My wife doesn’t watch as much. But she’s used to this. She doesn’t bat an eye. Our daughters are grown – they watch. But whenever there’s anything sexy my younger one will take a screen-shot of the TV and then send me a text that says ‘grrrrooooosssss.’ C&S: Funny – but seriously, what if advertisers agree with her – that maybe it’s all just a little too much? TG: [Laughing] - I don’t know because I don’t speak to them but I’d guess maybe some are nervous. But they also want the eyeballs. So they’re publicly ambivalent and trying to figure out where it’s all going. C&S: Where IS it all going? TG: It’s such a dynamic time in television and all of entertainment right now. The idea of just turning on the TV and seeing what’s on is great. But I think where it’s going, and I can only speak for myself – is the consumer having complete control over what they watch and when. C&S: It’s interesting how the show started solidly when it premiered last spring, but really took off a few months ago as more and more people talked about it online. TG: The exponential power of Twitter is mind blowing. I didn’t understand it at first – that’s part of being over 50 I guess – and the idea in general, I just had a knee-jerk reaction against it. But ABC asked us to get on – we started live tweeting with fans during the show [yes, it’s really him] – and it really opened

my eyes, the power of this tool, the opportunity to communicate directly with people. One of the things I like most about the success of this show is that it just caught on like a brushfire. And as the show kept getting better, new fans kept discovering it, largely due to each other on Twitter – as opposed to a publicity machine grinding out press releases and spending millions to promote something. And then the more intellectual press got on board – The New Yorker, The Nation, Rolling Stone – people who would have ordinarily been snooty about a Shonda Rhimes show – the guilty pleasure soap opera aspect of it. C&S: You obviously know a lot about the way this industry works. Your grandfather was [legendary producer] Samuel Goldwyn. Any desire to follow the family legacy into the more corporate side of entertainment? TG: My brother was a very successful industry executive and is now a producer. My father’s a producer and has had his own company for a long time. From a business aspect it interests me – but only as far as getting a creative idea going. The corporate or network or studio end of it, that’s just not my skill set. C&S: You directed Scandal’s May 2nd episode. How do you do everything you’re supposed to do as an actor while watching over it all? TG: I directed myself in Dexter and The L Word. It wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be, because as the actor you already know in what direction the scene needs to go and how you’re going to stage it.

C&S: You’ve directed several episodes of Dexter. It’s quite a challenge isn’t it, making L.A. look like Miami? The two regions look nothing alike. TG: Yes, I directed a bunch of Dexters and it was very difficult trying to recreate Florida. It’s doable, but it’s very hard to do it right because Miami has such a unique look. They have shot in Miami, and they go back from time to time, but Showtime said it was just too expensive to keep it there permanently. I wish they had. I love Florida. I spent about six months in Broward County many years ago, shooting a movie called Traces of Red. It wasn’t very good. But I was living near Pompano – had a house on a canal, it was so pretty. I just loved it. C&S: You must feel a little like you’re back in time right now. I know you’ve worked steadily the last 25 years, but women swarming you on the street and at airports again as they did [two decades ago] after Ghost, this has to be a re-adjustment for you and your family. TG: The only other time I have ever experienced anything on this scale was when I was in Ghost. I was completely anonymous before that. The idea of being recognized was shocking to me. THAT was a big adjustment. Now I find myself just very appreciative of it. I can feel the energy – everywhere I go, people want to talk about Scandal. They want their picture taken. We’ve been chased down streets! I’m glad that I’m where I am now in my life, because at this age I can appreciate it and also recognize, it’s a moment. Hopefully it lasts for a while.

LEGAL TIPS • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. • Don’t sign a new account agreement unless you understand it. • Hang up on cold callers, especially those calling with “the opportunity of a lifetime.” • Ignore high pressure sales tactics such as “if you don’t act now.” • Save all promotional materials, in the event of a dispute over how the investment was described. • Get it in writing. Don’t rely on verbal representations which may be convenient for the broker to forget during a dispute. • Do not blame yourself. Brokers have a duty to recommend only suitable investments. • Generally, the higher the investment return, the greater the risk.

veryone needs someone to protect his or her hardearned money — particularly retirees. Data compiled by the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) notes that in a three-month period, industry and business-related fraud against the elderly totaled $250.2 million. Over a period of 10 years, elderly Americans lost more than $2.6 billion a year, due to financial abuse — most often perpetrated by trusted individuals.


scams are a real curve ball, and they are targeted toward retirees and soon-to-be retirees. The pitch can be one that is very sophisticated — sometimes even including an offer of a “free lunch” just to listen. “Investors should be very wary of aggressive financial advisors who promise stellar returns on investments, while pushing high-fee financial products where commissions and excessive trading can eventually drain a portfolio,” says the securities fraud attorney

Championing the cause for victims of stockbroker fraud is the Securities Law Firm of Mark. A. Tepper, P.A. An investor advocate, who has practiced law for more than 35 years, the attorney represents investors who have suffered stock losses. As an experienced counsel, he has gone to bat for hundreds of clients, even taking on corporate giants when necessary. Tepper’s experience and knowledge as a securities attorney provides investors with the kind of representation they need. A member of the Florida, New York and California Bars, he is AV®-rated — the highest rating of lawyers in the MartindaleHubbell Law Directory. His experience as a securities fraud prosecutor includes an 11-year tenure as a New York assistant attorney general, and chief trial counsel at the Bureau of Investor Protection and Securities.


After earning his degree from Cornell Law School in 1972, Tepper began his career as a criminal defense attorney before concentrating in securities law. “I enjoy the satisfaction of doing the right thing. I meet people whose lives have been dramatically changed because of broker misconduct, and a successful claim and recovery can give them back their lives. That’s my reason for doing what I do.”

“It is wise to obtain a second opinion to reduce the chances of being ‘burned’ by an investment — and be quick to query any substantial loss with legal advice about your rights,” Tepper says. “If your account is losing money unexpectedly, be skeptical of excuses, and seek the advice of a competent counsel so you can understand your legal rights, and make an informed decision.”

Got the summer travel bug? Next time you’re booking a hotel, consider going boutique. Boutique hotels vary by property, but tend to be more intimate, distinctive and personality-driven than their counterparts. Think pet accessories, daily wine tastings and personalized staff service. Here are some to check out, from close to home to the West Coast.

Miami/Miami Beach

San Luis Obispo.

Miami is certainly having its moment. The city is constantly buzzing – whether for the Heat playoffs, Art Basel, the Miami International Boat Show, the Food Network Wine & Food Festival, the Sony Open – nearly every month brings another good reason to head south. Next time you cross county lines, consider spending the night in a boutique hotel. The Standard ( brings serenity to the west side of Miami Beach. Located in the quiet Venetian Islands neighborhood, the spa-centric hotel offers a hamam mud lounge, cedar sauna, sound pool, waterfront yoga and walking distance to Lincoln Road and the burgeoning Sunset Harbor area. The Conrad Miami ( brings crisp comfort to the business traveler. Located in the middle of Downtown, the 319-room hotel pairs skyline views with two rooftop tennis courts and 24th floor spa. Alternately, head to Kimpton’s EPIC hotel ( on the banks of the Miami River. A stone’s throw from Brickell, the EPIC treats guests to morning coffee & tea service, a daily hosted wine hour and a pet-friendly environment. Work up a sweat in Exhale spa then reward yourself with dinner at Zuma, one of Miami’s marquee restaurants (reserve ASAP if you’d like to eat between 7-10 p.m.).

SLO, a college town whose farmers market takes over Higuera Street every Thursday night, is a tempting destination in any year. The beach is a short drive, as are the wineries of Paso Robles and the rustic little town of Templeton. (In downtown SLO, you’re about 190 miles north of Los Angeles, about 230 miles south of San Francisco.) The 17-room boutique Granada Hotel ( opened in the fall in a converted ’20s building. The popular restaurant Luna Red (, offering “global tapas” and a big wine list, has moved to a larger downtown space with a big patio. The restaurant and bar Sidecar ( has been open since late 2011. And the Madonna Inn (madonnainn. com), which is to kitsch what the Matterhorn is to mountains, last year added horseback riding, two pink tennis courts, winter ice skating and a bike path to downtown.

Orange County, Calif. Mountains, beach and 12 glorious months of sunny 70-degree days await in Orange County. About an hour between Los Angeles and San Diego, the towns of Laguna Beach, Newport Beach and Costa Mesa offer a taste of the good life. Doryman’s Inn ( bills itself as Newport Beach’s only oceanfront hotel. The 10-room property pairs classic Victorian designs (think canopy beds and sunken baths) with modern conveniences like flatscreen TVs and gas fireplaces. Casa Laguna ( brings bed and breakfast convenience to South Coast Highway. Emphasis is on intimacy and romance (occupancy is limited to two people per room) and guests are treated to daily gourmet breakfast and wine & hors d’oeuvres. Ultimate luxury awaits at the Montage Laguna Beach ( Set on an oceanfront bluff, the 248-room property delivers 30 landscaped acres of beauty, comfort and service. —Valerie Schimel

Austin, Texas It’s a college town, music town, river town and tech town, in constant renewal. The 296-room Hyatt Place Downtown ( opened in April. In summer, expect the opening of the 123room Lone Star Court (, designed to suggest a ’40s roadside motor court, at the Domain mall in northwestern Austin. Meanwhile, the high-end Travaasa ( spa and resort, which opened in 2011 about 30 minutes outside town, has 70 guest rooms that overlook the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve. Rates start at about $275 a day. The seven-room Heywood Hotel (, a “nonhosted” boutique property that opened in December 2011 in eastern Austin, is aimed at guests who want stylish design but don’t need staffers on-site between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. (Rates typically are $200 to $300 a night, children discouraged.) For dinner, you might try Barley Swine (, which opened in late 2010, emphasizing locally sourced ingredients and made GQ’s list of best new American restaurants in 2012. For movies, there’s Violet Crown Cinema (violetcrowncinema. com), a four-screen downtown art house (opened 2011) that mixes general release movies with documentaries, foreign works and independent films; there’s also a bar and café. Before you book anything, consider the South by Southwest conferences and festivals (, almost universally known as SXSW, which run each year in

March and boost hotel demand in a big way. Oh, and for a rainy day, bear in mind that the LBJ Presidential Library ( reopened last year after a yearlong renovation. More citywide info: —Christopher Reynolds Los Angeles Times

Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa Travelers may know of Ixtapa, a private getaway on the Pacific coast of Mexico known for its high-end hotels and world-class amenities, but now neighboring Zihuatanejo may get its moment in the sun. The historic fishing port, just 10 minutes from Ixtapa and offering the lovely Playa la Ropa beach, will get a spruce-up, thanks to a rehabilitation project funded by the Mexican government. The project includes remodeling and revitalizing Zihuatanejo’s downtown area in a style of architecture inspired by Mexican architect Enrique Zozaya, who thinks landscape should shape design rather than design imposing itself on the landscape. “The goal behind the revitalization of Zihuatanejo’s downtown is to create a style that is iconic to this area,” said Javier Aluni, secretary for tourism for the state of Guerrero. “For example, Acapulco is known around the world by its famous cliff divers. We hope that with the rehabilitation of Zihuatanejo’s downtown, this unique style and architecture will become the destination’s icon, making it recognizable around the world.” Other attributes of the area, according to Aluni: • Grouped together, the IxtapaZihuatanejo area offers guests a range of accommodations, from small hotels and boutique properties to high-end, allinclusive resorts. • In TripAdvisor’s 2013 Travelers Choice Awards, the hotels and beaches of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo topped the lists in several categories, including: best hotels in Mexico, most romantic hotels, best family hotels in Mexico and Mexico’s most popular beach. Among the hotels and beaches ranking at the top of the lists were Club Med Ixtapa Pacific, Cinco Sentidos Hotel, Capella Ixtapa, Casa Cuitlateca and Playa la Ropa, Zihuatanejo’s pretty bay. — Rosemary McClure Los Angeles Times

Fort Lauderdale Rare Coins A name you can trust in the world of collecting Bill Beasi remembers with fondness his youth days in the 1960’s collecting coins. “I’d look for threelegged Buffalo nickels and 1916 D dimes,” he recalls. “Until I was a teenager, for my birthdays and on Christmas, I’d get old silver dollars as gifts. I loved it.” He’s still in to coins, but now Beasi is a professional numismatist, a student of money, particularly coins. This is his 41st year as owner of Fort Lauderdale Rare Coins, a business that specializes in hardto-find and unusual U.S. and world coins, tokens, medals, and rare currency and paper items. It has more than 2,000+ NGCand PCGS-certified gold, silver, platinum and palladium coins in stock. “There is not an area [of collecting] we do not deal in — from ancient to modern coins, from old paper money to exonumia (non-currency items such as medals and tokens),” says Beasi, who offers four decades of experience helping thousands acquire, build and protect their wealth with high quality coins.

Fort Lauderdale Rare Coins has more than 2,000 NGC- and PCGS-certified gold, silver, platinum and palladium coins in stock.

Coin collecting has changed greatly since his youthful days, when he was “trying to find one coin for each year. Now, it’s about acquisition of assets – buying gold, silver and rare coins.” There are two primary catalysts for this shift: the Internet and the economy possibly inflating.

Internet expands scope The Internet has expanded the scope of coin collecting considerably, helping to introduce and connect a large number of buyers and sellers.

taken as long as three weeks to be delivered; that’s how far [his client base] extends.” While the Internet has expanded the market, it also has introduced sellers who are not very experienced, or always ethical. “Counterfeiting is a big problem,” Beasi says. “If you are paying $2,000 plus for a rare item, you want to be sure it is real.”

About 15 years ago, Beasi established an international base of clients on the Internet (his website is Today, that base numbers about 35,000 customers worldwide, mainly in the U.S.

Which is why he recommends that the public deal with an authorized, licensed professional who has at least 15 years’ experience in numismatics. “I say that because in the last 10 years a lot of sellers have shown up on the Internet who are not really knowledgeable. There are many people selling coins, and not all of them are legitimate. Be careful who you deal with.”

“We have literally shipped coins to every country and island in the world,” “Some have

The second catalyst is the economy. As worries about weakening currencies and inflation

continue, more people are interested in acquiring gold and silver coins as a hedge against devaluation of currency, and to protect their personal assets.

who have money in the bank or have paper assets who should be protecting themselves by purchasing hard assets such as gold, silver, platinum and rare collectible coins.”

Concerns about economy

He says assets like rare gold coins are not to be confused with common bullion items such as krugerrands, maple leafs, philharmonic, etc. “Common bullion items are for preservation of capital. Rare coins are the preservation of capital and the appreciation of assets.”

“When the economy melts down, gold and silver melts up,” Beasi says. “People are concerned when they see the Federal Reserve create money seemingly out of thin air. The administration is increasing the federal deficit by $1 trillion a year. Each year, the government is spending $1 trillion it doesn’t have.” As the value of the dollar declines, the value of commodities such as gold and silver increases. He recommends that everyone should consider investing in gold and silver coins. “It should be people

While Beasi admits there is risk in any investment, he says the future for rare gold coins as investments continues to be bright. “Nothing is 100-percent safe, but the market for rare gold coins as investments will continue to appreciate. There will be some down times, but their value will continue to go up. There is no end in sight.”

“We remain consistent with the dishes we’ve always been noted for, and the portions are more than enough and moderately priced,” says Pellegrino. “We will never waver from our commitment to be the best.” Menu selections

One look at the restaurant’s vast menu and the only question remaining is “how do I make a choice?” Plainly put, the flavor of the food served is second to none. Bobby Pellegrino’s journey started at Rao’s, the world-renowned, family-owned restaurant in East Harlem. After learning the business from the ground up, and working at various Italian restaurants in the New York area, he took his first big career step by opening up a business in Oceanside, New York. Upon moving to South Florida, Pellegrino’s goal was to introduce the area to southern Italian cuisine. The restaurant was to reflect his Italian heritage, and treasured boyhood memories of New York City — but moreover, it was a restaurant tailor made to deliver excellent food and outstanding service. Consider the goal accomplished — and then some. Winner of 4-star service reviews, and high ratings by the prestigious Zagat Dining Guide, Pellegrino’s Ristorante was a staple of fine dining in Deerfield Beach for 11 years. Now, after relocating to Boca Raton, that same tradition of excellence continues. While the recipes are age-old, lovingly passed on from generation to generation, the atmosphere at Pellegrino’s is fresh and new, with white-linen tablecloths, sparkling stemware and impeccable service — a staple of Pellegrino’s.

From the first bite of the Millie’s Fried Out Meatball to Speidini alla Romano, with its layers of fresh mozzarella and bread, coated with parmigiano cheese, and sautéed in an anchovy butter white wine sauce — you’re in for a treat. Tasty appetizers, delicious pasta courses, and incomparable house specials such as Luigi’s Zuppa di Pesce or Pollo alla Limone (half of a broiled chicken on the bone, cut to bite-size pieces and served with lemon garlic marinade), make your dining experience one to remember. Other mouth-watering selections include Penne Pomodoro with onions, plum tomatoes and a flash of pancetta; Dente Orecchiette, a pasta dish of superb sweet and hot sausage; Veal alla Sorrentino, a tender veal medallion delight in pizzaiola sauce, layered with eggplant, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella; and Insaltato Caprese, with chunks of mozzarella in a fresh basil marinade and seasoned beefsteak tomatoes, adorned with sliced garlic.

orget fusion, say “toodle-oo” to tapas and wave “buh-bye” to ultra lounges. This year, the clear trends in dining are all about healthy, organic, natural, house-made and unique. Thanks to the surge in family-run gourmet food trucks, healthy fast food joints and in-house herb gardens for specialty cocktails, diners no longer need to reserve a table at a specialty restaurant to experience the best in quality ingredients. While the truth in dining is that if it’s done right it will stand the test of time, we take a look at some relatively new establishments that already are local trendsetters.

Max's Harvest: Interpretation of a banana cream pie

Grille 401

Max's Harvest: Pan seared diver scallops

FARM TO TABLE Sustainably grown, locally sourced ingredients and allaround sensitivity to synthetics and pesticide use is a very welcome trend. While it is difficult for restaurants to offer 50-page menus and any ingredient any time of year while following this premise, the truth is most patrons prefer the freshest, most highquality ingredients, even if that means a limited or changing menu. MAX’S HARVEST Positioned as a true farm-to-table restaurant, this charming spot does this trend justice. Focused on sourcing organic foods and keeping in close contact with local farms and markets, the restaurant also sets itself apart from the rest with its emphasis on locally sourced seafood. The line-caught, day-boat swordfish receives rave reviews and its snapper comes from the Keys. All beef is from cattle raised

and processed in Florida – Max’s Harvest serves Seminole Pride’s Black Angus beef while the brisket, chuck and dryaged sirloin are from Larry Kline Meats. The restaurant also composts its scrap produce and donates it to Farmer Jay of Farmer Jay’s Organics. New to the menu are the pan-seared diver scallops and a delicious version of the banana cream pie – banana custard layered with bananas Foster, molasses cookie crumble and a brûléed vanilla custard and locally grown Nam Wah bananas. Max’s Harvest: Pineapple Grove,169 NE Second Ave., Delray Beach, 561-3819970, BURT & MAX’S BAR AND GRILLE Another of Burt Rapoport’s creations, this latest concept also showcases a menu that features a number of items sourced from sustainable farms. Creekstone Farms provides the beef for the grilled skirt steak and the Prime Dry Aged NY Strip. Murray’s Free Range Chickens provides the Free Range Roasted Half Chicken and Southern Fried Chicken (served in the

Southern Fried Chicken and Waffles dish); and the branzino for the Mediterranean Branzino “a la Plancha” is farm raised. Burt & Max’s Bar and Grille: 9089 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, 561-6386380, GRILLE 401 No longer do the terms healthy eating, organic, locally sourced ingredients or farm-to-table mean a restaurant is more apt to be small, mom-and-pop or rustic. Grille 401 is a perfect example of the importance of farm-to-table and how it easily can be integrated into any fine-dining establishment. A proud supporter of local farmers, Grille 401 features a seasonal menu that regularly takes advantage of readily available local ingredients. Comprised of a local favorite, the signature chilled kale salad is a very popular menu item, while other local ingredients include the tomatoes in the tomato stack and the delicious corn relish that accompanies the crispy crab fritters.

HAND-CRAFTED COCKTAILS When you’re out and in the mood for a refreshing cocktail, forego the standard martini, gin and tonic or cosmopolitan (did 1990 call and ask for its drink back?). Instead, give the bartender your flavor preference and sit back while he works his magic. Nearly every new restaurant is offering something in the way of specialty cocktails – even nonalcoholic beverages are becoming a trend of their own, from freshsqueezed lemonade to coconut water, ginger beer and specialty iced teas. In short, you have no excuse to feel parched. 75 MAIN Along with a revamped menu from Chef Mark Militello comes a specialty cocktail

offering that is exemplary of this new trend: tried and true with a twist. If you’re a margarita lover, why not go a little crazy with the Esta Loca Margarita, comprised of Patron silver, pomegranate juice and fresh lime and orange sweetened with agave nectar. Or take advantage of the myriad flavored liquors with the Van Gogh açai blueberry vodka with muddled mint, lime and fresh blueberries with a splash of soda water. Still can’t shake your love of the cosmo but don’t want the weird look when you order? Try the Some Like it Hot Cosmo with Fireball Whiskey and cherry vodka, shaken with muddled maraschino cherry. Or, for a fun after-dinner drink, how about Bailey’s and Amaretto with a hint of banana liquor and topped with fresh nutmeg? 75 Main: 270 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, 561-243-7975, TANZY From its bar-top herb garden to its entertaining liquid nitrogen frozen concoctions courtesy of mixologist and master sommelier Adam Seger, Tanzy goes

the extra mile when crafting a specialty cocktail offering. Delighting the patrons of its main restaurant and iPic theater movie-goers alike, Tanzy not only offers plenty of signature cocktails, but also several fabulous spirit-free cocktails. Called “Nojitos,” these drinks include Tanline, Illegalito, Floridian or Mojitonico for all of the taste without the alcohol. Want a great summertime refresher? Order a pitcher of the housemade Passion-Ginger Ale. Tanzy: Mizner Park, 301 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, 561-922-6699, RA SUSHI With locations in Palm Beach Gardens and Pembroke Pines, RA Sushi Bar and Restaurant specializes in cool beverages sans alcohol. Specialty iced teas are a terrific complement to sushi dishes, with unique flavors such as Ginger Beach Decaf, Passion Fruit Green Tea, regular Green Tea and Pomegranate. Housemade strawberry purée mixes with lemonade for one of our favorites: the simple strawberry lemonade.

ENERGY KITCHEN This place has gone to the end of the spectrum in providing quick meals for the calorie-conscious. Everything on the menu is grilled, baked or steamed and less than 500 calories. Our only suggestion: skip the sugar-free soda offerings and stick to water.

We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to applaud the rising trend in fast-food restaurants with a sustainable or healthy focus. Hooray! In a hurry? Stop by one of these great places for a fun, fast meal that won’t make you feel as if you’ve sold your soul.

CHIPOTLE Gourmet burritos and tacos. No more, no less. This is “food with integrity,” every ingredient is sustainably sourced, without synthetic hormones or additives, and raised “with respect to the environment, the animals and the farmers.” The best part? It. Tastes. Awesome.

Dear Friend,



As the days pass and we enjoy good fortune off h health, lth h security it and d simcha i h celebrations l b t come to fruition — it is easy to forget there are families who are one paycheck away from living on the street. Many of our elderly are left alone, isolated during their ‘golden years’. Parents of a child with a disability are desperate for a connection ‌ any connection to our Jewish family. Please, I ask you to reflect on your life and wonder what if ‌  What if my adult child is unexpectedly fired from a job without any savings to spare?  What if I am hungry, frail and elderly?  What if my great-grandchild is autistic? There are no crystal balls to see into our future. But by the grace of the generosity of others, there will be a basket of vital programs and services to sustain our community members. So, unless you can guarantee with absolute 100 percent certainty that you or a family member will never be in need — make a gift to the Jewish Federation of Broward County Annual Campaign. This is your safety net and your promise that every Jew will be responsible for every other Jew. Sammy Schulman, Annual Campaign Chair

Great artists can produce great art in many forms, as The Artist as Jeweler exhibition at Bass Museum of Art shows


ewelry can win hearts, seal marriages or inspire jealousy. It can be glitzy and glamorous, staid or sublime, and when the creator is a Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono or Jeff Koons, jewelry can even be “art.” From Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler runs through July 21 at the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach. The exhibition features 200 works of wearable sculpture from 135 of the most influential artists of the modern era. “The value of a piece of an artist’s jewelry cannot be measured in karats,” says curator and collector Diane Venet. “It is not judged by its hallmark, sparkle or transparency.” A better gauge of value may be what the jewelry says about the artist. Often produced as gifts for family and friends, the works on display offer insights into the whimsies, foibles and passions of the creators. —Kingsley Guy
