FRONT RUNNER Bob Marley onstage at the Hammersmith Odeon in London in 1977. The global superstar (and South Florida regular) recorded some of his most revered tracks in Miami’s legendary Criteria Recording Studios.
Miami is not the first place you think of when you hear the name Bob Marley—the mere mention of the musical icon stirs up images of both the lush island countryside and the desolate third-world ghettos of his native Jamaica. However, since his death here in Miami at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital (now University of Miami Hospital) 34 years ago this month, the city has become inextricably linked to his legacy. Toward the end of his life, Marley was a regular in South Florida, having bought a house for his mother, Cedella Booker, in South Miami. He also had a presence in the hallowed halls of the Criteria Recording Studios in North Miami, where the finishing touches were put on his landmark 1976 album Rastaman Vibration. It would become his first album to crack the Billboard Top 10. “Originally we all moved to Miami to be closer to our grandmother and quickly fell in love with the vibe,” says Cedella Marley, Bob’s daughter and the CEO of the Bob Marley Group of Companies. She runs the business from Miami, overseeing everything from the legend’s music to various Marleybranded products from shoes to beverages. “It reminds our family of Jamaica.”
“He loved [Miami] because there was no pressure here,” says Bob Perry, former owner of the now-shuttered Blue Note Records, once one of Miami’s most popular record stores. Perry worked as a record promoter in the late ’70s and helped break Marley’s single “Could You Be Loved” in the US. “He always came back. It was definitely a home for him.” Today, Marley stands as one of the foremost faces of peace, love, and liberation around the globe, with his songs having become anthems of hope and change for activists and music fans across races and nations. The next musical chapter of the Marley story is being written in Miami as well, as it’s home to Ghetto Youths International, the record label run by Bob’s Grammywinning sons Stephen and Damian. “My grandfather has inspired me in every way possible, and continues to do so,” says Stephen’s son, Joseph “Jo Mersa” Marley, who also calls the city home, and whose modern reggae-dancehall is infused with elements of hiphop and EDM. “Being Miami was his home at one point, there is a strong local pride for his legacy and contribution to music.” OD

FRONT RUNNER The Roman Pools Bathing Casino in Miami Beach, seen here in 1926, featured saltwater pools and a working Dutch windmill to pump in seawater.
When in Rome
Bathing pools were once the epitome of Beach luxury in a young But Bustling miami Beach. A full-size Dutch windmill may seem incongruous next to bushy palm trees, but that was hardly the only odd juxtaposition at Miami Beach’s famed Roman Pools Bathing Casino. After all: a bathing casino? The venue, built by developer John Collins and his son-in-law Thomas Pancoast, was the newest and most elaborate casino on Miami Beach when it opened in 1914. (It was Collins who actually coined the term “Miami Beach”; before then, others called the neighborhood Ocean Beach or Alton Beach.) Just three years later, another developer, Carl Fisher, bought the property and invested $350,000 into improvements, such as a second pool, restaurant, ballroom, shopping arcade, and the aforementioned windmill, which was used to pump in seawater for bathers. The pools themselves were saltwater and were split by a runway that was especially handy for showing off the latest in wool bathing suit styles—yes, wool, even on 90-degree summer afternoons.
Far from being just a redoubt to escape the Florida heat, the pools soon became as popular as any nightclub, attracting many of the area’s top swimmers as well. The Marconi wireless station (two wireless towers, installed in 1914 as part of the government’s attempts to increase communication, radio, and telegraph services) was a big draw, too, as was the beautiful pavilion itself, which was painted dark red and set among tall coconut palms. The bathing casino’s location on Collins Avenue also brought in pedestrian traffic, as people could gamble or relax at the coffee shop inside if they didn’t feel like going for a dip. By 1936, a day pass cost would-be bathers a whopping $1.50 for adults and 75 cents for children. But as The Miami News reported, this included towels and umbrellas as well as “special luncheons and dinners for bathers at moderate prices.” It may not have been as lavish as, say, the Setai, but then again, what hotel today can claim a runway on its pool?

Letter from the editor-in-Chief
Catching up with Ocean Drive’s March cover star, Zoë Kravitz, for the magazine’s cover party at Wall at the W South Beach.
EarliEr this spring, former Miami Heat star Ray Allen was coasting down Biscayne Boulevard on a quiet Sunday night. Passing by his old stomping grounds, he took to Instagram to share a picture of AmericanAirlines Arena and captioned it, “Just passed by the old job. Some great memories in that place. Driving thru the city listening to ‘In the Air Tonight,’ by Phil Collins and I’m feeling like Ricardo Tubbs.” Anyone who has lived in or visited Miami knows that feeling. It’s 80 degrees out, the sunroof is open, or the top is down. There’s a slight breeze off the ocean or bay, and you are blasting a great song. While the rest of the country is covering up in North Face coats and Ugg boots, you’re dressed for the endless summer. We all get those moments down here—we’ve all pressed the gas pedal a little too heavily blasting a great song, and used the steering wheel as a drum set. Whether it’s a nostalgic moment like Ray Allen’s or creating new memories in the moment, there is no shortage of good feelings and adrenaline rushes in this town. We like to celebrate and live life to its fullest, and that was never more evident than this past spring. From the World Golf Championships to the Miami Open Tennis tournament to the 100th anniversary of Miami Beach, Ultra Music Festival and Winter Music Conference, opening day for the Marlins, constant galas and festivals, restaurant openings like Quality Meats and The Grill at Bal Harbour, and new dwellings from Brickell’s 1100 Millecento to
South Beach’s 1 Hotel & Homes, there were plenty of festivities to drive to and from with our favorite songs echoing off the concrete of downtown or the palm trees of South Beach. This month, we continue to celebrate at Ocean Drive with our annual “Women of Influence” feature, showcasing the power, intelligence, philanthropy, and leadership of some of Miami’s most distinguished ladies. Our cover star, Emmanuelle Chriqui, will be doing some celebrating of her own, as the smash HBO series Entourage hits the big screen on June 5. She’s a woman of influence in her own right, drawing inner strength from life experiences and giving back through a variety of philanthropic endeavors. And of course all over town there will be sparks, too, from this month’s first annual Maison & Objet Americas, featuring the world’s greatest in home and design, to galas and charity events like the Miami Heart & Stroke Ball, the 13th annual FedEx/ St. Jude Angels & Stars Gala, and Irie Weekend. So put your seat belt on, turn your radios up, put down your car top, and get ready for your own Miami Vice moment. It’s going to be a wild ride.

Summer iS juSt around the corner, giving us a chance to take a step back from our normal routines, set aside time to do something new, or check off our lists some of the things that have sadly, but unavoidably, fallen by the wayside. Now is the time to reinvigorate. What better way to do that than with Hollywood siren Emmanuelle Chriqui? She’s heating up our cover as we start our summer, and in Ocean Drive’s pages, you’ll see what made her the star of HBO’s Entourage (the movie version of which is out June 5) and read about how she continues to cultivate her acting career. It’s appropriate, then, that this is our Women of Influence Issue. This month, we’re highlighting nine powerful women who give life to this burgeoning city, from leading major real estate developments that draw people from all over the world to preserving our beautiful coast and creating landscapes for future generations. We’ve also been eagerly awaiting the inaugural Maison & Objet Americas, which arrives in Miami Beach this May. This is the first time the Paris-based home and design trade show is being held on this side of the Atlantic, and we can’t wait for the world-renowned lifestyle event to establish a tradition here, as Art Basel has done. We’re also looking forward to the 93rd annual Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce dinner gala on Saturday, May 9. We’d like to congratulate this year’s honorees, entertainment legend Bernie Yuman and Alan and Diane Lieberman. We couldn’t be happier for all. We love and appreciate the relationship we’ve shared with them over the years, and we wish them continued success. See you around town…

Billy Rood Photographer Billy Rood’s cinematic and ethereal imagery of fashion, beauty, and portraits always has a strong visual style, sophistication, energy, and wit. With his signature use of color and editing, his artistry feels timeless while staying fresh and modern. “Miami has great light and color, so there is always something unique to capture with the backdrop of the Miami Beach life and hotel scene,” says the photographer, who is inspired by personalities, laughter, women, cinema, and style. For this issue of ocean drive, Rood shot the “Women of Influence” feature. “I love meeting new people and quickly getting to know them as I shoot,” he says. “I was thinking of iconic female imagery and looking for ways to capture each subject in a beautiful and new compelling way.”

Bryn Kenny began her career as an editor and writer at wwd and w magazine and served as public relations director for Dior Beauty. In 2013, she founded her own consulting firm, Bryn Kenny Creative, and currently represents a select list of beauty and lifestyle brands. Kenny interviewed Donatella Versace for this issue’s “Tastemaker.” “There’s a certain confidence and freedom to the way women dress in Miami that lends itself well to the Versace aesthetic,” she says. “Versace is all about sex and power— no apologies—and Miami women embody that spirit.”
A Miami-based freelance writer and copywriter, Becky Randel is a frequent contributor to people, w magazine, about.com, thedailymeal.com, and more. She is greatly outnumbered at home, where she lives with her husband, two young sons, and a male puggle. For ocean drive’s “Spirit of Generosity” column, Randel wrote about the Sabrina Cohen Foundation and the Miami Heart & Stroke Ball. “The level of passion and commitment was unwavering in both cases,” says Randel. “It’s amazing to see people so driven and dedicated to a greater good. The main difference is that Sabrina is her cause—there’s no work/ life separation; she lives her message every day.”
Miami-based Jon Warech collaborated with reality-TV star Kendra Wilkinson on her new york times bestselling memoir, sliding into home, and full house actress Jodie Sweetin on her 2009 memoir, unsweetined. In addition to ocean drive, Warech has covered entertainment and pop culture for us weekly and AOL’s mandatory.com; his work has also appeared in the new york daily news, vibe, the Miami herald, and espn the Magazine, among others. He interviewed cousins Keith Menin and Jared Galbut for this issue’s “Generations” column. “This is the type of business where you’d think there would be a lot of egos, but they put that aside and really put family first,” says Warech of the developers.
“MiaMi isn’t a city full of beach buMs and partygoers. people here are sMart, aware, and caring. we siMply happen to like having fun, too!” —becky randel

Donatella Versace steers the Versace brand into the future with a new creatiVe director and deVelopment of the company’s design district home store. by bryn kenny
“Strong and powerful women can love frivolity too,” says Donatella Versace, artistic director of the fashion brand, which opened its first Versace Home store in the Design District last spring.
Since taking the helm of Versace nearly two decades ago, Donatella Versace has built a brand that is as synonymous with Italian glamour and luxury as it is with American pop culture. From Jennifer Lopez’s provocative Grammy Awards dress to the plethora of celebrities—most recently, Madonna—who have posed for the brand’s ad campaigns, Versace is constantly finding ways to create newness and excitement. “Versace is more than just a brand to me; it is family, and its DNA and traditions are in my blood,” says Donatella Versace. “What interests me is taking those traditions and pushing them forward into the future. I am obsessed with the future—to me, the past is boring.” And with the recent announcement of white-hot designer Anthony Vaccarello as the creative director of the brand’s sister label, Versus Versace, the future seems brighter than ever. “I’ve followed Anthony’s work from his very first collection, and as soon as I met him I realized he was the one,” says Versace of the choice. “He gets it. I love his fresh energy and innovation.” The Versus line is particularly close to Versace’s heart, as it was originally created by her late brother, Gianni (Gianni Versace was killed outside his Miami Beach mansion, Casa Casuarina, in 1997). “It was the label Gianni created for me to capture the rebellious soul of Versace,” she says. “It has always been about youth and energy, and the best way to keep true to its origins is to encourage new talents in global fashion.” This spirit of youth and energy is also alive and well in the Versace Spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection, which features midriff-baring tops worthy of an SLT devotee, floor-length skirts continued on page 92

with up-to-there slits, and mod laser-cut minidresses begging for a night out at LIV in sorbet-on-acid pops of color and graphic black and white. To complement the collection, there are two new reinterpretations of the Signature and Palazzo handbags, the L.Signature bag and the L.Palazzo bag. The L.Signature features laser-cut leather lined with transparent PVC along with gold Medusa medallion accents, while the slightly less structured L.Palazzo offers laser-cut styling with a single Medusa accent. Each of the new styles is available in
shades of soft pink and light blue, as well as classic white and black. “I wanted Spring 2015 to feel like hitting the refresh button—everything was bold, vivid, and precise,” says Versace of her inspiration, adding that the bags were created with a sense of playfulness that will resonate with Miami trendsetters. “The bags are light, refreshing, and fun, because strong and powerful women can love frivolity too, right?” And really, this juxtaposition between power and play, between the sophisticated severity of black and the pure
optimism of powder pink, has long been Versace’s forte. It’s an unabashedly confident, no-holds-barred approach to design that translates well with the women of South Florida. “Women in Miami live life to the fullest,” says Versace. “Miami is pure energy, from the passion and provocation of the city to the daring, strength, and fearlessness of the women who live there.” Last spring, Versace opened the company’s Versace Home store, which carries the brand’s complete line of furniture, lighting, wallpaper, fabrics, and
tableware, in the Design District. “It has been such a thrill to see Miami develop into a destination for the art and design world, and the Design District is now one of the most exciting retail destinations in the world, a focal point for true creativity,” says Versace of the concept, which she created with architect Jamie Fobert. “It’s the perfect location for a 21st-century Versace store.” Looking forward, Versace is staying busy with her many duties as artistic director of the house, from overseeing the direction of each collection to envisioning the
design of the Versace boutiques and Palazzo Versace hotels to mapping out the future strategy of the brand. It’s all in a day’s work for the petite powerhouse. “I love the variety, from the first conversations about a new season through the design process to the show itself, and then afterwards the campaigns and the product hitting stores,” she says. “I couldn’t imagine a job where I did the same thing every day.” Bal harbour shops, 9700 collins ave., 305-864-0044; Miami design district, 186 ne 39th st., 305-573-8345; versace.com OD

naming the collection after one of the city’s streets was more about a lack of ego than civic pride. “I was going over and over what I thought would be [a] good name,” she says. “This is the only thing that felt good to me. Every jewelry person likes to name their jewelry their first name and middle name; I just can’t get myself to do that.” While the Miami lifestyle is the inspiration for much of Turchin’s current collection, it was her twin brother, Michael, a Los Angelesbased painter who married singer Lance Bass late last year, who may motivate its next generation. Both Lance and Michael wear champagne diamond wedding rings Lauren designed. “It definitely has inspired me to want to create fine jewelry,” Turchin says. “The whole process of creating a mold and choosing stones and metal types is so much fun, and to see the final product is the best feeling.” meridianave.com OD

Although she hand-makes the majority of pieces for her spunky jewelry collection, Meridian Avenue, designer Lauren Turchin admits that her training has been a bit unorthodox. “Any new technique I need to learn, I always YouTube it,” she says, adding that sometimes she just improvises. “For my friendship bracelets, I didn’t know how to do a round braid, so I started doing a flat weave and just rolled with it.” That unpretentious attitude is echoed in Turchin’s designs for Meridian Avenue: unfussy and casual, stylish but never too loud, ideal for a laid-back afternoon in the sunshine or brunch with friends. “It’s not jazzy; it’s just relaxed and has a cool vibe. It’s not too trendy; it’s wearable. You can throw it on and pair it with a bathing suit or a cover-up and it looks good,” she says of her collection of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, available in Miami Beach at Frankie (1891 Purdy Ave., 786-4794898; frankiemiami.com), Love & Pieces (1680 Meridian Ave., #303, 786-571-6812; loveand pieces.com), and Anatomy at 1220 (1220 20th St., 786-213-1220; anatomyat1220.com). Turchin, 28, has been making necklaces and bracelets since she was a child, but didn’t think of it as a career until a few years ago while she was working at the men’s fashion jewelry company Miansai after graduating from the University of Florida. A fourth-generation Miamian, she’s close to her family and often makes pieces for Meridian Avenue at a room she’s turned into a de facto office at her parents’ home on—where else?—Meridian Avenue. (Turchin’s parents and grandmother are even sometimes enlisted to help knot delicate freshwater pearl bracelets.) Turchin insists that

Tiffany & Co. unveils an all-new timepiece collection for men and women, inspired by a celebrated watch worn by fdr. by roberta naas
Tiffany & Co. has unveiled a new watch collection—made in Switzerland under its own ever-vigilant standards— aimed at paying tribute to the glory of its founding father and the early years of this celebrated American brand. The collection honors icons of the New York-based company, including the famous Fifth Avenue Atlas clock that continues to crown Tiffany & Co.’s doorways around the world, as well as a timepiece owned by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Charles Lewis Tiffany
established Tiffany & Co. in 1837, opening his first store on Lower Broadway in New York. Ten years later, Tiffany began producing watches, and in 1853, the company founder installed one of the city’s first public clocks—the famous nine-foot-tall Atlas clock—above his store’s entryway. “We like to think of ourselves as the creator of the New York minute,” says Jon King, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co. “We put up one of the first public clocks [in] the 1800s. People set their watches to
match. It became a reliable timekeeper and was the true embodiment of the New York minute.” To honor that cultural heritage, and the brand’s legacy of building innovative, quality timepieces, Tiffany & Co. has released the all-new CT60 collection. The line, named in tribute to Charles Tiffany and the 60-second minute, is inspired by a Tiffany & Co. gold watch that was given to FDR on his birthday in 1945. The caseback was inscribed with the words franklin
delano roosevelt, with loyalty, respect and affection. The watch
recently found its way to the Christie’s auction house and was reacquired by Tiffany & Co. just in time to lend inspiration to the new line. The CT60 collection, which retails between $4,250 and $19,000, consists of 23 styles, each with the Tiffany & Co. New York logo on the dial, and all housing mechanical Swiss movements that are further hand-finished by individual artisans to achieve exquisite
pearlage and Cotes de Genève motifs. At the high end of the collection is the stunning calendar watch, based on the FDR watch, which is created in a limited, numbered edition of just 60 pieces in 18k rose gold. Other timepieces include chronographs in stainless steel, and three-hands in stainless steel and in 18k rose gold. Dials are finished with a “soleil” sunray pattern and come in blue, slate gray, chocolate, black, and white. Miami Design District, 114 NE 39th St., 305-428-1390; tiffany.com.

Design lovers in Miami will be treated to a delectable taste of France in May. Maison & Objet, the must-see event for design cognoscenti around the globe, has stood as the world’s premier luxury decorative arts trade show since it was founded 20 years ago. Serving up a selection of the finest furniture, objects, lighting, tableware, and accents from top craftsmen and makers in Europe and beyond, the flagship fair, which is held semiannually in Paris, attracts about 166,000 architects, designers, retailers, and journalists each year. In 2014, it branched out to Singapore, broadening its reach to Asia. And this year, the renowned trade show will expand again, this time to America with its launch in Miami Beach, where exhibitors will offer the global design community a glimpse of some of the world’s most inspiring contemporary furnishings and objects.

world-class design and its proximity to Latin America, Miami was pinpointed as the perfect setting for Maison & Objet’s entry into the Americas. “We chose Miami Beach for Maison & Objet Americas not only for its strategic positioning with quick access to some very important geographic areas, but also for the vibrancy and energy of the city,” says Philippe Brocart, managing director of Safi, which owns and operates Maison & Objet. Like Maison & Objet and Maison & Objet Asia, Maison & Objet Americas will showcase the wares from a carefully vetted group of exhibitors to assure that offerings meet a standard of quality that will appeal to top-caliber professional visitors. Based on a mix of criteria, including creativity, show design, brand awareness, and regional commercial presence, the selection committee for the fair handpicked about 280 manufacturers, designers, and craftspeople to showcase their furnishings and objects at the inaugural Americas show, which will be held from May 12 to 15 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Though many of the brands exhibiting at the Miami event also exhibit at the Paris show, more than a third of the exhibitors, including many from North and Latin America, will exclusively present their products in this market. In addition to the furnishings, materials, upholstery fabric, accessories, and concepts on display at the convention center, Maison & Objet Americas will collaborate in a series of events, such as Miami Museum Month, Design District showroom happenings, lectures at Miami Ironside, and trends and inspiration workshops. While Maison & Objet is a trade event open to credentialed industry professionals, for the first time, only in Miami Beach, it will also offer limited access to the general public on the final afternoon of the fair.

Rey of Light
Lana DeL Rey brings her moody yet sun-kissed melodies to south Florida, Featuring an ode to miami. by ray rogers “Come on down to Florida, I got somethin’ for ya,” implores Lana Del Rey on a dirty little ditty called “Florida Kilos” off of her latest album, Ultraviolence. Is it a come-on, a promise, a tease? Perhaps all of the above. Del Rey, whose Endless Summer Tour touches down at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach on June 16, loves to flirt with danger in her cinematic, sad-eyed pop pastiches. One of the most polarizing and enigmatic figures in music in recent years, this pop lightning rod has inspired both intense fandom and critical bashings. Raised in upstate New York, she cut her teeth in the same downtown Manhattan scene that spawned Lady Gaga, performing under her real name, Lizzy Grant, before coming into her own as Lana Del Rey. “I wanted a name I could shape the music towards,” she’s said about her moniker. “I was going to Miami quite a lot at the time, speaking a lot of Spanish with my friends from Cuba—Lana Del Rey reminded us of the glamour of the seaside. It sounded gorgeous coming off the tip of the tongue.” Del Rey has come a long way since her lackluster live debut on Saturday Night Live in January 2012 that got her raked across the coals. Just three years after the SNL debacle, she’s now hailed by the likes of Rolling Stone as “one of the most compelling performers of our time.” Ultraviolence, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys (who calls her “a true eccentric and extremely talented”), silenced the naysayers in one fell swoop. “I’m happy when things are just kind of calm,” Del Rey told Rolling Stone at the time Ultraviolence was released. “I love going to the ocean. I love driving. I love going to shows. Just being with people I really have fun with. I love the summer. I’m happy in the summer. Love hot, hot weather.” Get ready to sizzle. As the starlet herself suggests on that last track of the deluxe edition of Ultraviolence: “We could get high in Miami/ Ooh, dance the night away/ People never die in Miami/ Ooh, that’s what they all say.” Can’t wait to see for ourselves.

Cloudy With a Chance of Abstraction
For his Locust Projects instaLLation, MiaMi Painter RobeRto Gómez enLists the weather. Agriculture and cutting-edge contemporary art would seem to make for odd bedfellows. But not to Roberto Gómez. In fact, working on his family’s produce farm in Homestead has given Gómez some of his most striking artistic ideas, resulting in paintings that owe as much to the vagaries of nature as to Gómez’s own hand. “It was a happy accident,” he explains of his current approach. Expecting a hurricane to strike, Gómez had purchased gallons of extra paint with which to coat his farm’s trees— denuded of leaves by the hurricane’s winds, they would otherwise burn in the sun. However, when the storm veered away from South Florida, Gómez indulged his curiosity and poured some of the extra paint out on the ground, just to see how it would dry once the humid air worked its alchemical magic. Intrigued by the results, Gómez began pouring paint onto strips of plastic, peeling it off once it dried, sometimes adding a differently colored second layer, and then leaving the whole textilelike conglomeration to sit outdoors for a month. “It’s like collecting time,” he chuckles of the weathering effects on his Op-Art-like patterns. For his new installation at Locust Projects, Gómez is suspending his artwork in the air via clotheslines. “I’m hanging paint instead of laundry,” he says with a laugh. Once again, Homestead itself has been an inspiration: “People aren’t even conscious of the alteration of the landscape,” he says of the clotheslines that dot the countryside there, bisecting distant views and throwing a surreal palette into the otherwise monochromatic rural terrain. “I guess it has to do with me being a farmer,” he muses. “I’m fascinated by how everyday life can be translated into art.” Roberto Gómez’s “Inside Out” is on view at Locust Projects, 3852 N.

Museum Director and Chief Curator Jill Deupi in front of Hans van de Bovenkamp’s Circles and Waves XX, 1987, at the University of Miami’s Lowe Art Museum.
Delving Deep “By the end of One L, I knew I had made a terrible mistake,” recalls Jill Deupi, referring to her first year of law school at American University in the early ’90s. “Where is the philosophy? Where are the ideas? It was just a lawyer factory.” Even though she went on to graduate summa cum laude, Deupi realized it was the art world—always a side passion—that was calling her. With the ink barely dry on her law diploma, she moved to London with her architect husband and “started over at the very bottom rung, as a volunteer with the Royal Academy of Arts.” Two decades later, Deupi herself is now the one overseeing volunteers as the director and Beaux Arts chief curator of the University of Miami’s Lowe Art
Museum, a post she took over last August upon Brian Dursum’s retirement after 24 years as director. A year in, Deupi has had to grapple with competing identities for the Lowe: Is it a campus museum serving UM’s student body, or is it a community resource, responsive to the needs—and demands—of greater Miami? For several decades following its 1950 founding, as the only serious visual arts game in town, the Lowe was everything to everybody, producing more than a little grumbling over its often-cloistered curatorial attitude. These days, with major Miami museums sprouting up everywhere, as well as the gravitational pull of Art Basel dominating virtually every cultural conversation, continued on page 116

“We are, at 65 years, one of the oldest visual arts cultural institutions in MiaMi.”—jill deupi Deupi passing by William Carlson’s Prõcellosus (Sudden Storm), 2008, inside the Lowe. “Once you begin to explore, it’s really inspiring,” she says.
the Lowe can sometimes feel like an art-scene afterthought. For her part, Deupi says her vision is clear. “It’s really important to understand the personality of your institution,” she explains of the Lowe, which this month mounts a survey of new work from University of Miami art department faculty members, a tribute to the late Miami art collector and museum patron Francien Ruwitch, and a new installation from Miami artist Glexis Novoa, in addition to its permanent exhibits. “For us, the Lowe is a history book. That sounds really stuffy and dry, but I think once you begin to explore that on the ground—when you come in and look at our vast array of pre-Colombian pieces, for example—it’s really inspiring!” Indeed, walking through virtually every other Miami museum, it can often feel as if the art world begins in 1980. Works from the earlier post-war period, let alone Renaissance-era paintings or Greco-Roman antiquities, are given only token acknowledgement—or ignored altogether. By contrast, while the Lowe’s building may be modest in size, the art on display provides a sweeping view, from impressive contemporary works by Roy Lichtenstein and Frank Stella, to Native American headdresses and totem poles, to foreboding supernaturally themed animal sculptures from Ecuador, circa 400 BC. “We are, at 65 years, one of the oldest visual arts cultural institutions in Miami,” says Deupi. “What that means is that we have an incredible collection. We have not just breadth, but we have depth as well. People may have forgotten, or maybe they never heard, that we have 19,000 objects covering 5,000 years of universal human history. That allows us to be relevant to almost anything.” It also means, Deupi adds pointedly, that “we can embrace the contemporary while giving it legs, explaining where it came from.” What’s most striking about Deupi is that in a city whose cultural leaders often seem determined to chase the zeitgeist regardless of where it leads, what it costs, or what its actual intellectual value may be, she emphasizes the need to slow down, breathe, and take the time to look backwards. Tellingly, though Deupi has a long track record of scholarship and prior museum experience, she credits those early days in London as formative, citing hours lovingly poring over hand-written documents from 1768 drafted by the Royal Academy of Art’s founders. “I got bit hard,” she says of that archival dig. “It’s always been the historical aspects of art that appealed to me.” On that note, Deupi says museums need to be cautious about the current mania for all things digital. “One has to be wary of gimmicks and gadgets,” she stresses, citing the thankfully subsided fad for curators to slap QR codes on every wall. Striking a balance with technology is key, she says, not only to avoid turning the museum into a vapid amusement park, but also, via “self-directed learning,” to enable every visitor to tailor his or her own experience. “You can just enjoy the sheer beauty of the objects. You can skim and enjoy on a very sensorial level, or you can go deep.” for exhibition info at the lowe art Museum (1301 stanford dr., coral Gables, 305-284-3535), visit lowemuseum.org. OD

Chris Paciello and Marc Megna at Anatomy at 1220. right: The new gym’s state-of-the-art weight room.
If you’ve ever wondered what high-altitude-esque running on a treadmill with an oxygen mask and electrodes is like, let me tell you—it’s really, really hard. Gatorade commercials make it look so easy. Nevertheless, measuring one’s VO2 max (your endurance) is a crucial piece of the body puzzle, according to South Beach’s newest fitness center, Anatomy at 1220. Here, fitness has officially gone from the treadmill to the lab. The 13,000-square-foot, multilevel, chandelierbedecked gym was envisioned by nightlife expert Chris Paciello, who launched the gym with—fittingly—a redcarpet grand opening. And after a few workouts and procedures at Anatomy, you might look just as “Hollywood” as you feel. “There was a void in Miami of a higher-end gym with the whole medical, antiaging component,” says Paciello, who tapped into some of the city’s best talent, including co-owner and former NFL star Marc Megna (whom Chris lovingly calls an “Adonis”), as
well as the Miami Institute for Age Management and Intervention to create the in-house FITTLab. “You see different facilities that have a beautiful gym or a beautiful spa, but you don’t really see them together,” says Megna. Besides this being quite possibly the sexiest gym in America, get ready for the workout of your life. Head-totoe personalization is also a big differentiator at Anatomy. What works for one person might fail for another, and it’s that philosophy that has the tailored fitness segments kicking Miami into shape. After my James Bond-like testing, I sat with trainer (and Junior Olympian) Jacqueline Kasen to discuss my results: My VO2 test ranked superior, but my Seca scan body fat ratio could be… better. Which means all the exercise I currently do needs to be replaced with a lot more strength training, because I’m consistently burning muscle instead of fat. continued on page 120

For most, it means heading to the lounge-y Sanctuary with its neon jellyfish mural and crystal ball ceiling lamps, and taking a plunge in the hot and cold pools. Just try not to stare at the women who look like they came with the place. Or do.

shredding their abs), the vibe was somehow more intimate than intimidating, and not by accident. “We want people to feel like they’re a welcome guest in our home,” says Paciello. Meanwhile, Megna emphasizes a “consistent, positive energy.” Unfortunately, we had to pause before the full workout, as the time had come for my blowout (#Tuesday). Anatomy also offers massages, blood tests, and chiropractic work courtesy of Dr. Matthew Cooper; guests can buy jewelry or fresh juices, or unwind on the sun deck overlooking Sunset Harbour. And you can keep your car in the parking lot while running over to JugoFresh. Arguably the best part of the Anatomy at 1220

and personal training are a must-try; one session comes free with membership. Get your blood tested and check your O2 levels. Steam out the toxins in the Sanctuary, squeeze in that blowout for a night on the town, or enjoy a session in the hyperbaric chamber. If you have all day: Try a butt-kicking class on
the sun roof, an indoor abs class, or get Zen in Yogalates. Then dive into a quick circuit workout with the machines or free weights, followed by strengthening on the Pit Shark squat machine. Juice up with a protein shake on the beautiful outdoor terrace, and recover with a massage and VitaSquad IV bag before showering off with the delicious Mt. Sapola body wash.

Next, Kasen and I did an FMS (functional movement screening), where I learned I point my toes too much. My session also revealed I needed tweaks on almost every move, only to be re-tweaked on rep 8 or 9. Apparently, form really does matter. Nearby, other beautiful Miamians were perfecting their form as well—Instagram star Joey Swoll (735,000 followers) was lifting weights the size of a Honda, while musician Cedric Gervais was keeping up his endurance for 3 am deejaying gigs. Will Smith had stopped by the week before, and athletes like Mike Piazza pop in and out. Even among the über-sexy, athletic gymgoers (including dozens of Wilhelmina models taking selfies while

Lady of the Law
As MiAMi-DADe County’s stAte Attorney, atherine Fernandez rundle ChArts the legAl Course of MiAMi.
photography by Vanessa rogers
by bill kearney
Miami-Dade County State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, here at Perricone’s in Brickell, oversees the fourthlargest state attorney’s office in the nation.
Imagine growing up in Miami but being shipped off to a convent-like high school in Spain where you live among nuns, work with them in the kitchen, and study diligently under their watchful eye, lest they crack your knuckles with a ruler. This might seem like an old-world tableau from a forgotten time, but it was how Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Miami-Dade County’s state attorney, spent a chunk of her high school years. These days, in the very new-world environs of Miami, she’s leading the county’s top law enforcement office, including navigating how the state’s laws need to evolve for the 21st century, from high tech identity theft to human trafficking. It’s a long way from Barcelona. “I didn’t like it—I was angry and sad, but I grew a lot,” she says of her schooling in Spain. That adversity, as well as good bloodlines (her father was the first Hispanic judge in Miami), would prepare Fernandez Rundle for the challenges of one of the most outstanding legal careers in Florida. After Spain, she went on to graduate from the University of Miami, then pursued postgraduate studies at the University of Cambridge, continued on page 128
PEOPLE View from the Top As a result, she’s started a cybercrimes unit. Fernandez Rundle’s legal journey had its roots with her father, Cuban immigrant Carlos Benito Fernandez. “My father would take me to his law office, and I would go to court with him, meet governors, and he exposed me to the world of problem solving,” says Fernandez Rundle, who has also raised twin boys—one now a lawyer and the other a singer/songwriter. “There’s always room for improvements; my sons would tell you I made mistakes,” she says. “The only answer is to not beat yourself up and do the best you can, and then have everyone around you be a support system. When my mother found out I was having twins, she said, ‘That’s it, I’ll take care of them.’ I moved two blocks from where my mother and father lived. Not everybody’s that lucky, and I know that.” After her 22-year stretch, will she ever run for a different public office? “I’ve been approached, and I would never say never,” says Fernandez Rundle, “but over the years, I have come to appreciate that I have one of the best jobs in America, and I work with the best team in America. When you’re doing work that’s good for the community, when you can right wrongs, and have mercy when you should, what a great labor of love I have here.” OD
“WHEN YOu’rE DOINg WOrk THAT’S gOOD FOr THE COMMuNITY, WHEN YOu CAN rIgHT WrONgS… WHAT A grEAT lABOr OF lOvE I HAvE HErE.” —katherine fernandez rundle in England, where she earned a graduate degree in criminology, and a law degree. From there, she returned to South Florida to work for then-MiamiDade State Attorney Janet Reno. When Reno moved on to become attorney general for President Bill Clinton in 1993, Fernandez Rundle was appointed to the office and became the first Hispanic female state attorney in Florida. Since then, Fernandez Rundle’s been on a 22-year run as state attorney, overseeing the largest state attorney’s office in the state (the fourth-largest in the nation) with 330 lawyers, and 1,300 employees total. Like most people who have been in a position of power for a long time—and anyone who has to battle through elections—she’s been the target of criticism. There are folks who don’t like her decisions on whom to prosecute and whom not to, and the Police Benevolent Association has made efforts to elect her rivals, yet voters have given her the nod in six elections. Part of Fernandez Rundle’s mission is to adjust South Florida law as society changes. In the ’90s,
when “every consulate was telling its citizens not to travel here” due to tourist muggings, her office responded by rewriting the state’s sentencing structure. Her office was the first in Florida to establish a drug court and a domestic violence unit, and the majority of law on domestic violence was either authored or advocated by her office. This year, she’s focused on a range of issues, including human trafficking, particularly of young runaways lured into forced prostitution. As a result, her office has developed a special human trafficking unit, a media campaign for awareness, and a hotline, and is honing in on hotels where abductions typically occur. “The inhumanity to humanity can be very evil,” she says. “But what motivates all of us is the victims. If you spend a day with us and see these victims—they have so much strength. They empower you, and you want to fight for them.” Technology, too, has changed the nature of crime in Miami. “What used to be street gangs have started stealing IDs, stealing tax returns,” she says, and Miami is ground zero for Medicare fraud.
Off Duty Every legal eagle needs some down time. Here’s how Katherine Fernandez Rundle makes use of hers. Favorite lunch spot:
“I love Perricone’s (15 SE 10th St., Miami) and what Steve [Perricone] has grown, taking a chance in a neighborhood [Brickell] where nobody else would.” Friday night to-do:
“On the last Friday of every month, Calle Ocho comes alive with Viernes Culturales. All these stores and galleries open and we dance in the street, and there’s Cuban and Haitian art.” Beauty tips:
“I love my ladies at Nelly’s (3360 SW Third Ave., Miami); it’s a beautiful salon of maybe eight hardworking women off Coral Way.” at the end oF a tough day:
“My fancé, David Efron, is a godsend. I’m not an easy person, and there are not a lot of people you can bounce ideas off of, and he always tells me straight.” What might surprise people aBout you?
“I went to Woodstock, and I love Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. I went when my parents were out of town. They were not happy. If one of my sons did that at that age, I would have been furious.”

Keith Menin and Jared Galbut at the Menin Hospitality offices, in front of a beach skyline they are helping to shape.
The Galbut family’s love affair with Miami Beach began in 1931 when Abraham and Bessie Galbut moved to the city, opened Al’s, a shop that was equal parts drugstore, tag agency, notary public, and restaurant, and immersed themselves in the community. Their grandsons, Russell Galbut and Bruce Menin, cofounded with partner Sonny Kahn the development company Crescent Heights and reshaped the city with the Shelborne, the Alexander, the Decoplage, Carriage Club, and the Casablanca—not to mention 35,000 residential units around the country over the past 35 years. Now, Bruce’s nephew, Keith Menin, and a cousin, Jared Galbut, are the next generation taking the town by storm. With hotel and food and beverage projects such as Bentley South Beach, Sanctuary South Beach, Gale South Beach, Kaskades Suites, Radio Bar, Pizza Bar, and most recently the massively successful Bodega Taqueria y Tequila, Menin Hospitality is continuing the family tradition of building a richer Miami.
What are your earliest memories of the family business? Jared Galbut: I remember going [to the Shelborne] on the weekends with my father, looking at the renovations and eating breakfast by the pool every Saturday. It was always interesting, even at a young age, seeing the family working together. Keith Menin: One summer, I worked at the Shelborne front desk with the bow tie and little name tag on the vest. Russell always said, “If you want to know what I know, and you want to be me one day, you have to really learn every inch of the business.” When did you realize you could work together, and what’s the dynamic like? KM: I had a car wash business when I was 15, a vending machine business when I was 16, and even then I would pick [ Jared] up and he’d do all the work while I was watching. He was the younger cousin that wanted to hang continued on page 132

His excitement and his guidance are vital to the success of our company. KM: Russell walked into Bodega and said, “I love the warehouse. Do one of your concepts. You’re going to make it work.” He’s never wrong. A lot of our success is due to having him as our coach. Your family has this hospitality heritage—do you see that passing on to the next generation? KM: The business and the family all blend together. Between Jared’s kids and eventually my kids, I hope someone wants to be in the hotel business. I think that legacy is very important. JG: I always joke that my son is going to be the first 6-year-old bellman. I’ve worked every single role—the mailroom, concierge, front desk, housekeeping, and construction.

I enjoy operations and managing the company, and Keith enjoys acquisitions, construction, and design. I set him up properly for the operations, and Keith executes it, builds it, designs it, and then tags me in. How did your first project, The Sanctuary hotel, pave the way for today’s success? JG: It was our first learning experience developing these hotels. When you’re young, you’re excited and you have passion and you want to be on top of the world, but I think you learn patience and perfecting what you do. KM: Back then, there wasn’t TripAdvisor, Yelp, or any social media, so I met all my guests face to face and saw what they liked and didn’t like. That customer service is still what I do today. When we open a bar like Bodega, I’m still there checking on every person. The Gale South Beach, Bodega, and Radio Bar are all quite different in character, yet all are successful. What’s the secret? JG: We don’t say we want to do Mexican and we’re going to put it here because we want to do it. We found a space that we loved and we asked, “What would be great here?” The same goes for our new projects South of Fifth—Red Ginger, an Asian-influenced concept, and Bake House, which is a French brasserie. KM: Every concept we do is catered to the demographic, but the common denominator is that there’s always a great vibe and great customer service. If you go to Pizza Bar, Radio Bar, or The Gale, you can almost feel that we did it without

The Art of Water
Art2o’s Claudia lópez Aspires to quench the world’s thirst for Art. by hunter braithwaite When she was 15, Claudia López’s American father sent her from her hometown of Bogotá to boarding school in Massachusetts. Her real education, however, took place in New York City, wandering the museums and galleries with her aunt who was passionate about art. But then López returned to Colombia, where she studied law, and her life seemed to veer away from art. López’s life would eventually veer back in a big way. Eight years ago, she relocated to Paris with her husband and their two sons for his real-estate company. López couldn’t practice law in Paris, so she revisited those long-harbored dreams of studying art. She enrolled in a three-year art history program offered by the Louvre. “When I started learning art history, the way I saw the world changed,” she says. “I wanted to find a way to share that.” In Paris, López noticed another thing: Bottled water was everywhere, peeking out of luxury
handbags and perched atop café tables. When she moved to Miami just under two years ago, López knew that she wanted to share art with people in an approachable way. She launched Art2o—100 percent natural spring water, packaged in bottles featuring an original work of art—last December, as the official water sponsor for the Pulse Art Fair. The goal? Create a growing awareness of art’s impact on our society. Art2o, which can be found at cafés around Wynwood, in stores like Panther Coffee, and the Bass Museum, MC Kitchen, and many others, currently has three collections, including the Master collection, which features Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss, Sandro Botticelli’s Primavera, and an iconic non-objective work by Wassily Kandinsky. However, López says that while she adores the greatest hits of art history, she also wants to provide exposure for living artists. “We want to be a canvas for them, so they can be seen,” she says. Hence, Art2o features two lines devoted to the art of today; the Inspired By collection asks artists to pay homage to their idols, while the Contemporary collection champions their own original compositions. López herself scouted the artists who appear on Art2o bottles. She went to the ArtCenter/South Florida, where she encountered “so much talent, so many incredible artists.” There she recruited artists like the Argentine Pablo Contrisciani, who painted an homage to Willem de Kooning for the Inspired By collection. Beyond the labels, which are printed in New York using a special ink, Art2o offers premium water, sourced from an alkaline spring two kilometers beneath Mississippi. “The inside is just as beautiful as the outside,” says López, who spent more than six months searching for the perfect source. The company has also taken on several educational initiatives—a look at the brand’s website reveals five “knowledge droplets” that enrich the painting for even the most in-art-iculate drinker. And for each bottle sold, five cents are reserved to build a nonprofit center for the arts. art2owater.com OD

MULTIHYPHENATE BRAD COZZA IS USING HIS KNOWLEDGE OF FASHION, FOOD, AND REAL ESTATE TO LEAVE HIS MARK ON MIAMI. BY STEPHANIE DUNN
MY MIAMI YOUR LOCAL GO-TO RESTAURANTS? “Sienna
Tavern (404 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) is my current favorite. Then there’s Cavalli (150 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach) and 1826 (1826 Collins Ave., Miami Beach). That’s the Italian in me.” AS A MODEL, YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO LOOK GOOD. WHERE DO YOU SHOP?
“I love The Webster (1220 Collins Ave., Miami Beach) and Base (927 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach). Nordstrom in the Aventura Mall (19501 Biscayne Blvd.) is my number-one go-to for suits. But you can’t go wrong with Bal Harbour Shops (9700 Collins Ave.). You can spend $10,000 very quickly there.”
How were you discovered? I went to Model Search America, your traditional discovery weekend convention. I was discovered by Ford, and then I switched over to Major Model Management. I was booking ads [for] Tommy Hilfiger and Levi’s, but living on a couch. I had a degree in business management from Florida Gulf Coast [University]. My father said, “Why don’t you put your education to use?” So I got a real estate license and started going between Fort Myers and Miami. Who is your ultimate model idol? How could you not say Gisele? [Also] I’d say Nina Agdal, who actually got her start in Miami. You’re also an investor in Haven. What’s your food philosophy? An amazing dish doesn’t have to have expensive ingredients or be named something you can’t pronounce. I learned that from chef Todd Erickson. It’s true knowledge of flavors that separates good food from fantastic food. How would you define your personal style? Monday through Friday at the office, I’m very business professional. And I admit I’m [into] labels: Versace or Hugo Boss pants, and Dolce & Gabbana or Prada shirts. How do you place Miami in terms of the fashion world? Miami always has and always will be a European catalog powerhouse. When you look at cities like Milan, Paris, and London, Miami is always mentioned alongside them—that will only get stronger. Where do you most like to travel? Nothing beats Milan. I also love Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth [Australia]—just to go to the wildlife refuges and see dingos and wombats. By your bed, you keep… It’s a massive stack of magazines—from Real Estate Investor for research, to Vogue for men’s trends, to a ton of food magazines. I’m always learning, so it’s simultaneously leisure and constructive reading. Haven, 1237 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305-987-8885; havenlounge.com.

You may recognize Brad Cozza as the chiseled face in ads for Tommy Hilfiger, Perry Ellis, or Levi’s, or perhaps you’ve passed Cozza coaching one of his protégés for Evolution Model Management, his Miami Beach-based boutique agency. Maybe you read his name in the Wall Street Journal—the newspaper ranked his investment real estate firm, Cozza Investment Group, number 10 for the largest volume produced in the US. Or maybe you crossed paths at Haven, the expanding Lincoln Road hot spot in which he’s a partner. No matter what avenue leads you his way, Cozza is a man you want to know.
PEOPLE Spirit of Generosity Sabrina Cohen at Allison Park on Miami Beach, in one of the water-resistant, beach-ready wheelchairs that allow people with mobility issues like her to get close to the water.
Wheels in Motion
Twenty-two years ago, six Miami teenagers loaded into two cars and decided to drag race down Alton Road. In the ensuing crash, five of the six kids walked away unharmed, but Sabrina Cohen, a “healthy, athletic, and normal” 14-year-old girl, was left paralyzed from the neck down. “I can vaguely remember that perhaps I didn’t think it was cool to put a seat belt on,” Cohen explains of the accident. “I wasn’t a bad kid. I was a great kid, very studious. I was just a teenager.” After the accident, Cohen says, “My image was shattered…. I saw other people in wheelchairs and it hit me that it was a reflection of me. The hardest part was being in high school with a full-time nurse who was pushing me around and had to take care of me.” Cohen underwent numerous surgeries and three months of rehab before returning to school, where she was asked to speak to a group of elementary school children. “Right away I realized— even though at first I didn’t want it to be my mission in life—that if my story could help other people be safe and think about the decisions they make in their life, then it gives you purpose.”
In 2006, Cohen launched the Sabrina Cohen Foundation. Initially, her focus was on science and treatment, but she soon found her efforts would be better spent working to enhance the existing lives of those affected. “I look at treatment and technology as ways that can improve a life [instead of] me waiting to run a marathon one day,” she says. Now, the foundation funds medical research and quality-of-life programs that help people with paralysis and disabilities live a fuller life. The foundation’s largest undertaking to date is a partnership with the City of Miami Beach, which encompasses a number of initiatives that will allow disabled and paralyzed individuals to enjoy the same perks of living in South Florida as everyone else. One element of the project will include a “one-of-akind, accessible hub of activities” for those with disabilities, including a playground, outdoor fitness area with hand cycling and yoga, and most importantly, special technology that allows people with mobility issues to get closer to the water, like water-resistant beach-ready wheelchairs that can easily continued on page 140

In addition to the structure itself, the foundation is creating suitable programming such as adaptive surfing, snorkeling and scuba, meditation, and art therapy. “That element of physical activity and the desire to stay healthy never leaves a person,” says Cohen. And for Cohen, the mission has already been life changing. “Because of this project, I got in the [ocean] for the first time in 22 years,” she says. Another goal of the beach project is to spread the message of inclusion—the special wood polymer decking planned will allow ramp access for strollers, coolers, bicycles, and more. “Whether it’s seniors, children, veterans, or adults with disabilities, visitors can come to Miami and have a place to go and experience outdoor activities,” says Cohen of the project, which is moving forward so quickly that it may set the stage for a global prototype. “I
have been getting messages from people all over the world about traveling to South Florida to come to our beach and experience this and use it as a template to then develop in other cities.” Cohen attributes her success to positive thinking. “Peace of mind and acceptance of oneself is probably at the core to anybody living a healthy and active lifestyle,” she explains. “I’ve come a long way to realize that.” Add to that a changing social landscape (“Society is moving towards more acceptance of everybody—gay rights, disabilities, civil rights; we should all accept one another for the way we are”) and Cohen’s love for Miami, and her motivation, stays strong. “To be an advocate for beach and fitness in my hometown is pretty amazing.” To volunteer, make a donation, or receive more information on the Sabrina Cohen Foundation, visit sabrinacohen foundation.org.

tAStE In this Issue: A Fresh take on Steak At Quality Meats, the heart of the menu is its myriad of hearty entrées, ranging from oversize “Butcher’s Cuts” to braised veal shank to this bone-in rib steak.
The Next Generation of Steakhouse
Quality Meats, which just opened on the beach, finds novel ways to bring the steakhouse into the 21st century.
photography by gary james
by lee klein
Michael Stillman was attending high school in 1997 when his father, celebrated restaurateur Alan Stillman, opened a branch of his Smith & Wollensky steakhouse on South Beach. Michael would eventually play an integral role in managing the nationally expanding business, and in 2007, when all but the flagship New York venue were sold, father and son founded Fourth Wall Restaurants. This past February, under that group’s widening umbrella, Michael debuted a second outlet of his successful New York steakhouse, Quality Meats, in the former Bancroft Hotel on South Beach. A chip off the old butcher block, you might correctly note, but understand that Quality Meats is not Smith & Wollensky. continued on page 146
taSte So many Dinners (So little time)
sunchoke, and citrus ceviche; Executive Chef Craig Koketsu plating Quality Meats’ tomato and stracciatella salad; the new space retains former elements of the Bancroft Hotel (pictured, the QM bar).
“There are a lot of similar ideas,” the younger Stillman explains, “but with a different generational view.” The divergence in aesthetics is evident as soon as one enters the elegant two-level, 200-seat space (replete with expansive wraparound patio). The design firm AvroKO used the Bancroft’s classic Art Deco elements and terrazzo floor as a foundation, but tweaks it with rich teaks, warm textures, and the rustic accoutrements of a familyowned butcher shop. (The hotel’s original check-in desk now functions as a faux butcher counter, the reception desk as a service bar.) “We like to have fun with things that are familiar,” says chef/partner Craig Koketsu, and though he could be describing the balance of tradition and whimsy evident in the décor, the chef is speaking of the approach he and Executive Chef Patrick
Rebholz have taken with the menu: big beefy offerings offset by a lighter, highly inventive, market-driven sensibility. This means diners can start their meal with a local farmer’s salad, a tower of pristine shellfish, hog snapper ceviche sparkling with sunchokes and citrus, or The Elvis—meaty slabs of grilled, house-cured bacon glazed with tamarind miso and served with peanut butter sauce and jalapeño jelly jazzed with minced apples. The heart of the menu is naturally steered toward steak. The three primary cuts are a 24-ounce tomahawk rib steak, an 18-ounce bone-in sirloin (each dry aged for 28 days), and a 12-ounce filet mignon. “We didn’t want to do wagyu and 17 types of beef, and all that,” says Stillman. What separates QM from the herd instead are underutilized and
supersize “Butcher’s Cut” meats that are cured, smoked, or dry aged in-house (intended for two to four to share). This falls right in Rebholz’s wheelhouse; the former chef de cuisine at Charleston’s Peninsula Grill possesses estimable skills in large-format butchering (as well as in farm-to-table cooking). He enthusiastically details the rarity of QM’s 64-ounce Angus double-rib steak, and is downright gleeful when describing the whole suckling pig confit that gets dry-rubbed, tied into a barrel shape, and “submerged and cooked in duck fat until it almost falls apart.” The natural byproduct of butchering is homemade charcuterie, and Rebholz takes full advantage with riveting renditions of smoked soppressata and duck bacon. At QM, non-carnivores “won’t feel like they’re getting the short end of the
stick,” insists Koketsu. “Our fish dishes are really strong.” Consider the “New York bagel-inspired” branzino, with its crisp coat of “everything” spice (sesame, poppy seed, et al.) and accompaniments of smoked cream cheese and pickled onions. “[It’s] food people can relate to,” Rebholz says of his focus, “but in a way that hasn’t been done.” This same spirit extends to delicate sides such as corn crème brûlée with sweet, crackly crust, beet-glazed carrots, and grilled oyster mushrooms straight from the farms of Homestead. “My father was very excited about South Beach since way back,” reflects Stillman, “and we’ve only become more so.” Regarding their enthusiasm for Miami, there is no generation gap. 1501 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-340-3333; qualitymeatsmiami.com OD

“I was eating falafel one day, and I thought to myself, I bet this would go really well with oysters,” says Craig Koketsu, who experimented with a chickpea-based falafel mix atop oysters before developing what is now QM’s stuffed oysters with chickpeas and aioli. Koketsu added a chorizo aioli “for depth”; a mince of tomato, cucumber, red onion, and parsley provides a fresh, wet crunch.
Everything but the Steak
IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT THE BEEF AT MIAMI’S LEADING STEAK RESTAURANTS.
RARE FIND: BLT Steak BL Located in the stylish Betsy hotel, BLT Steak is one of the rare steakhouses to offer an all-raw menu, ﬁ lled with light but satisfying morsels like the tuna tartare with avocado and soy lime dressing ( LEFT).
Michael Mina’s upscale establishment in Turnberry Isle offers innovative seafood options in addition to the requisite steak; this lobster pot pie is a standout with its hearty helping of Maine lobster, trufﬂe cream, and seasonal vegetables.
Prior to joining James Beard Award-winning chef Laurent Tourondel at BLT Steak, chef de cuisine Danny Ganem honed his skills at Martín Berasategui and the two-Michelin-starred Mugaritz and opened Bourbon Steak. While glancing at the menu here, your attention will be turned to the colossal airy and cheesy popovers and velvety chicken liver mousse that act as a filling precursor to the meal. But be sure to give special consideration to the salads and sushi selection (extensive enough to earn its own menu), specifically the cobia nigiri with ginger hoisin and pineapple chili. “All our fish comes from either Japan or local fishermen,” says Ganem. The Betsy, 1440 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach, 305-673-0044; thebetsyhotel.com BURGEONING MATTERS: Bourbon Steak
MEA Meat Market’s Executive Chef Sean Brasel is a selfprofessed seafood guy, which comes through in dishes like his creative shrimp ceviche.
Michael Mina gives you copious amounts of tantalizing offerings (lobster pot pie, anyone?) to make you forget about the existence of beef at his revered contemporary steakhouse. From the trio of duck fat fries “amuse” and the Moroccanspiced rock shrimp lentils to the decadently creamy miso-glazed seabass swimming in maitake
mushroom dashi, your mouth will never experience a dull moment. Although the dry-aged burger (a blend of brisket, short rib, and chuck) is only listed on the bar menu, it’s the one item everyone who visits Bourbon Steak ought to bite into. “A burger is an important find,” says Mina. “There’s a real science to it.” 19999 W. Country Club Dr., Aventura, 786-279-6600; michaelmina.net RAW BAZAAR: Meat Market
The sexiest steakhouse in all of Miami, Meat Market seduces you with its surroundings, potent cocktails (sip on the herbaceous blackberry sage smash), and extensive raw offerings that on a good night include 17-ounce stone crab claws. Never mind that everyone around you is being served a steak knife; Executive Chef Sean Brasel is a seafood guy: “Me personally, I like to eat fish.” And Brasel has a knack for cooking it, too. You simply can’t go wrong with the daily ceviche or fish, which fuses the local catch with Brasel’s creative genius. For an afterthought, Key lime pie cheesecake will leave you satiated. 915 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305-532-0088; meatmarketmiami.com PORTION CONTROL: Prime 112
Twelve years in, Prime 112 is still the hottest table in town, with former US presidents such as Bill Clinton dropping in to feast on family-size salad portions (go for the Prime 112 chopped) and indulge in fried Oreos. “The whole idea when we started this was the modern steakhouse,” says Executive Chef Todd Zimmer. “But we wanted to throw back to the things we grew up eating, so [it’s] not just steak.” Sides abound, from lobster mac-and-cheese and creamed corn to 10 takes on potatoes, as well as finger-licking sweet and spicy confit chicken wings.

Be they traditional or contemporary, steakhouses all have one thing in common: They are a carnivore’s dream. But look past their prime— and often gargantuan—cuts of meat (some of which are aged in their in-house meat lockers), and you might just find a bevy of unsung yet delicious salads, seafood, pasta, and desserts. As steak maven Michael Mina best puts it, “Just because people love going to a steakhouse in this day and age doesn’t mean there’s not a large percentage of people who want everything but the steak.”

WOLFGANG’S Worthy of its New York steakhouse origins, at Wolfgang’s, the seafood tower is piled high with lobster, shrimp, lump crab, littleneck clams, and oysters.
Forget the Fontainebleau’s dry-aging meat locker; here, it’s all about BleauFish. The resort’s private fishing vessel sources local catch for all its restaurants, including Michael Mina’s Stripsteak. Start your experience at the edgy, copper-hued modern steakhouse with a towering shellfish platter of the chef’s daily selection. Then go for the pasta. The duck and ricotta butternut squash cavatelli with black trumpet mushrooms and Parmesan foam is an enigma of flavors and textures. As per Mina, though, leave room for the bread pudding. “It’s unbelievable,” he says. “Dessert is the most missed, yet classic item at steakhouses.” 4441
Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 877-3267412; michaelmina.net SLICE OF NY: Wolfgang’s
“When I started out in the steakhouse business in 1963, we were concentrated on steak, french fries, creamed spinach, and maybe lamb chops,” says Wolfgang Zwiener of his 40-year tenure as head waiter of New York’s famed Peter Luger steakhouse. Nowadays, his Wolfgang’s in downtown Miami is the kind of steakhouse where deals get made over a slice of Junior’s cheesecake (a Big Apple staple since 1950 and shipped in daily). Take in unparalleled views of Biscayne Bay alongside a generous, appetizing cut of sizzling Canadian bacon, and for the main event, opt for the off-menu seafood pasta scampi—it’s Wolfgang’s best-kept secret. 315 S.

One Of the mOst exciting tOques in sOuth flOrida’s culinary scene, chef AdriAnne CAlvo is bringing wOrld-class taste tO a small-tOwn lOcale. by jordi lippe She’s the youngest chef to ever cook for the United Nations and, at 19, catered the 2003 World Series for the then-champion Florida Marlins. She’s the winner of multiple awards, including champion of the 2013 Master Holiday Chef Challenge, where she beat 14 prominent national chefs, yet you’ve probably never heard of Adrianne Calvo or her wildly popular Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar in Kendall. Napa Valleyinspired menu items like the Wine Country cheese plate, the 24-hour braised prime beef short rib, and the Harris Ranch Black Angus five-diamond reserve filet have also won Calvo a strong following over the years. Here, the 31-year-old CubanAmerican culinary force talks about what stirs her success.
Why did you become a chef? I didn’t originally want to be a chef; I wanted to go into journalism. It wasn’t until a scheduling mistake in my sophomore year of high school, when I was put into a cooking class. While I was waiting to get out of it, Johnson & Wales [University, which has a prominent culinary academy] came in and gave a presentation. From that point forward, all I wanted to do was cook. Did you have any major hurdles to jump? It was—and still is—very much a man’s world, but it didn’t
Chef Adrianne Calvo is so confdent about the favor of her food that she hosts “Dark Dining” once a month, where diners can’t see what they are eating. “It’s a very sexy dining experience,” she says. “By suppressing the sense of sight, the other senses become heightened.” Calvo hosts the multicourse dinners like an interactive wine tasting. “I do it because I am obsessed with guests’ reaction to food,” she says.
matter. I stayed focused and went from doing an internship to opening my restaurant at 23 years old. I call myself the Beyoncé of the food world because Beyoncé’s band is all women and my kitchen team is all women. I think they’re drawn to me because they see opportunity or maybe they see themselves in me. Where do you find your inspiration? I was the fat kid. My mom cooked every day, and while the other kids were out playing, I’d stay inside setting the table hoping that dinnertime would come faster. I just cook things that I love to eat. We slowly braise our osso buco for six hours and check it every 45 minutes to make sure it’s simmering properly. There’s so much attention paid to the dish that whenever the guest has it, it becomes a memory. Do you have passions outside the kitchen? Seven years ago, I started my own foundation called Make It Count in honor of my sister who passed away from cancer. Her whole thing was “make it count,” and she wanted to help kids and families going through treatment when she got better.

Duck, Duck, Spice reopens in south Beach with a duck Breast as richly spiced as the magic city itself. by carla torres “Not your daddy’s steakhouse” is STK’s tag line, and one that sums up the contemporarily chic restaurant that originated in New York’s Meatpacking District and has since expanded to locations in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Washington, DC. “It’s the type of place where you can have a good time and loosen up during dinner and no one is going to judge you for it,” says South East Regional Corporate Chef Aaron Taylor of the steakhouse, which recently reopened in Miami at the new 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach.
While duck is a rarity on Miami menus, STK’s vibrant, spice-rubbed duck breast will forever change how you think about the poultry.

TasTe The Dish “The biggesT Thing for me is To Try To creaTe a perfecT balance beTween acidiTy, salTy, and sweeT.” —aaron taylor When STK Miami originally closed in 2013, Taylor took to the road, hopping into STK kitchens around the country. “New York always has some type of duck on the menu, but we’ve never done duck in Miami,” he says. Until now, with the restaurant’s spiced duck breast entrée...
THE OTHER OTHER WHITE MEAT Taylor cites awareness as the main driving force for putting the poultry on the menu. “I want people to know there’s more to steakhouses than just red meat,” says the Cleveland native, who first brought his talents to South Beach in 2008 for the opening of Meat Market. “I had an opportunity to work as chef de cuisine alongside Sean [Brasel] and couldn’t pass that up.” It was there that Taylor learned beef is only a small part of the puzzle. “Duck is kind of like the forgotten meat,” he says.
PREPARING THE BIRD “Duck has a bad reputation,” Taylor says of the ani-
mal commonly regarded as gamey. To counter the misconception, he sources his birds from Long Island’s Crescent Duck—a farm noted for producing fine duck since 1908. “It’s the best eating duck for the consumer,” says Taylor, who rubs the breasts with curry, cinnamon, brown sugar, and piment d’espelette (a variety of chili pepper cultivated in France) before setting them to a slow render to cook out the fat without overdoing it. “Duck can be pretty fatty, and we want to get it crispy at the top but pink in the middle.” Taylor simultaneously sears an accompanying duck roulade till it’s browned at the edges. “First we confit the legs and then pick it apart while it’s hot and roll it up.”
BALANCING ACT “The biggest thing for me with every dish is to try to create a perfect balance between acidity, salty, and sweet,” the chef says. In the case of STK’s spiced duck breast, Taylor strikes that balance with lots of elements. Tangy whole-grain apricot mustard and
acidic pickled cabbage coat the plate and cut the richness of the roulade, and he bathes the vibrant and tender sliced duck breasts in sweet duck jus reduction before spooning an earthy-citrusy apricot pistachio chutney on top. Even with so much going on, each element manages to stand and shine alone: the fuzziness of the apricot slices in the chutney, the crunch and nuttiness of the pistachios, the aromatic and fragrant taste of the pink white meat that you barely even need to chew, all countered with the roulade’s rough (in a good way) edges. Like STK, it’s a party for the palate. 2301 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-604-6988; togrp.com OD

WHERE ROCK ROYALTY

A dash of orange zest (far left) is a finishing touch to PM Fish & Steak’s San Telmo Martini (left), which also uses fragrant rosemary, in addition to French whiskey, ginger liqueur, lime juice, agave, and apple cider reduction. above: Floor manager and bartender Bettina De Andrea adding the essential rosemary sprig.
Usually it’s bartenders or mixologists who are tasked with conceptualizing and creating a restaurant’s cocktail list, but at PM Fish & Steak, it’s floor manager Bettina De Andrea who’s in charge of what’s poured, shaken, and stirred behind the bar. A bartender by trade, De Andrea spent 12 years mixing libations, first in Boston and New York before landing in Miami, where she tended bar at Garcia’s and Seaspice. “Mixology in Boston is huge; I wanted to bring some of that to Miami.” PM, named after the neighborhood of Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires, Argentina, opened its doors in Brickell in 2012, making it the first outpost in the US and outside of Mexico (where the Argentine-style steakhouse first opened in 1986). It instantly drew a hip crowd of South Americans looking for a taste of home. The gargantuan space fuses the old world with a penchant for modern touches. The same can be said of the San Telmo, which blends Bastille, a French whiskey, with raw agave, lime juice, organic apple cider reduction,
Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, and muddled rosemary. “Women [didn’t] normally drink whiskey, but they drink this,” says De Andrea. Making a whiskey-based martini is a bold move, but throwing rosemary into the mix is even more unorthodox for a classic steakhouse. Says De Andrea, “People see rosemary and they get scared,” although the fragrant herb shouldn’t be feared as it plays well with the Bastille’s robust yet fruity character. Then she adds two ounces of the whiskey—shaken, not stirred. “If I did one ounce, people would say, ‘Where’s my whiskey?’” Indeed, the generous two-ounce pour of the powerful spirit doesn’t dominate the delicate martini, as heat from the ginger liqueur mingles flawlessly with the buzzing sweetness that both apple cider and agave bring to the glass. The whole thing is capped off with a splash of house Chardonnay (which isn’t listed in the cocktail description). “We all have our secrets,” says De Andrea, who adds a final, but essential, touch of orange zest and a rosemary sprig. 1453 S.

COOK LIKE A PRO
“When is it time to flip a steak, and how long do you grill your steak?” are two of the questions William Crandall, executive chef of Azul at the Mandarin Oriental, Miami, answers at his seasonally themed interactive cooking classes. The next intimate (i.e., limited to 15 students) fourcourse lesson takes place June 6 with a seafood summertime theme—think crab cake niçoise, fruits de mer, and mango floating island. After learning how it’s done, enjoy the fruits of your labor with wine pairings. 500 Brickell Key Dr., Miami, 305-913-8358; mandarinoriental.com
Mediterranean cuisine is having a moment in Miami, with the latest iteration, La Savina, representing the rustic shores of the Balearic Islands, which include Majorca and Ibiza. La Savina takes over the former Asia de Cuba space at the whimsically swank Mondrian, where Morgans Corporate Executive Chef Tien Ho, who got his culinary start with French mastermind Daniel Boulud at Café Boulud and then honed his skills at David Chang’s two-Michelin-starred shrine to noodles, Momofuku, spearheads the award-winning culinary team. “Mediterranean cuisine is all about keeping things simple,” says Ho, a statement best evidenced by any one of La Savina’s classically grilled meats and fish. Beyond the grill, expect an array of fresh crudos ranging from hamachi with serrano chili and crispy shallots to chilled shrimp with crushed olives, tomato, and oregano, all coupled with unique takes on sangria (try the rosemary pear). 1100 West Ave., Miami Beach, 305-514-1940; morganshotelgroup.com

A shopping plaza in Aventura might be the last place you’d expect to ﬁnd authentic Southern brisket, but at Pilar Local Restaurant & Bar, it’s Executive Chef Erica Nicholl’s signature. Hailing from Dallas, Nicholl offers traditional dishes with a twist, like scallops coupled with butternut squash. 20475 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura, 305-937-2777; pilarrestaurantandbar.com
TASTE OF CUBA Finka Table & Tap’s menu honors three generations of restaurateurs.
From vaca frita immersed in a pile of kimchi shoestring fries and topped with pico de gallo, spicy mayo, and queso blanco, to three-cheese carne asada mac loaded with bacon and scallions, Finka Table & Tap unorthodoxly
fuses Cuban cuisine with Korean and Japanese influences. But there’s one thing that thirdgeneration restaurateur Eileen Andrade has left untouched: the croquetas. “We would never change that,” she says of the fried
golden spheres that harken back to landmark Cuban-American eatery Islas Canarias, which her grandparents began in 1977 after immigrating from La Habana. 14690 SW 26th St., Miami, 305-2278818; finkarestaurant.com OD

Sporting long braids and her signature rockeredge style, the sum of which seems to pay homage to her über-cool parents, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, Zoë Kravitz arrived at Wall at the W South Beach to celebrate her latest achievement: the release of her March-issue Ocean Drive cover. Joined by Miami’s elite and Kravitz’s friend and cousin, DJ Ruckus, Kravitz enjoyed herself into the wee hours. “It’s so great to be here,” she said of Miami Beach, as she had just escaped frigid New York, and she meant it. Kravitz spent the better part of the week frolicking in the ocean, and couldn’t resist showing off to her 535,000 Instagram followers just how beautiful paradise was, posting sunny shots on the beach with the caption, “New York I love you but you’re bringing me down. #miami” and “Ok Miami, we get it. You’re awesome. #vitaminD.” Kravitz soaked up much-needed relaxation, as she’s been busy with two movies released this year, as well as touring with her band, Lolawolf. Her most recent film, Mad Max: Fury Road, out in May, is hot on the heels of the March release of her sci-fi flick Insurgent, the second installment in the Divergent series. If she stays this busy, we’ll surely see her back on the beach for another dose of vitamin D.

Emmanuelle Chriqui says her Entourage character, Sloan McQuewick, “is the most glamorous version of myself.”
who’s that girl? LONG KNOWN AS THE SEXY SIDEKICK TO THE BOYS OF ENTOURAGE, EMMANUELLE CHRIQUI COMES INTO HER OWN AS A BANKABLE HOLLYWOOD STAR WHEN THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES HITS THE BIG SCREEN THIS JUNE. BY
“Sloan is somebody that I could look at and be like, ‘Wow, I want to be like that; I want to be effortlessly chic and breeze through life,’” says Chriqui of the Entourage character she played for six seasons on HBO, and which she reprises for the big screen this June.
ntourage fans, get ready for a wild ride: The upcoming big-screen production of the HBO hit series “is like the biggest, most awesome version of the television show,” says Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays Sloan McQuewick, the show’s beloved and enduring female standout in a sea of outrageous bros. “It’s shot so beautifully. Doug Ellin really did an amazing job directing this film. It looks so cinematic.” When the movie picks up (“some opening sequences were shot in Miami”), Sloan, the on-again, offagain love interest (and soon-to-be baby mama) to Kevin Connolly’s character, Eric, “is about to pop,” Chriqui says. “Things are nice between her and Eric; they’re not together but they’re co-parenting. And it unravels, as it always does between them.” Playing a new mother was “wild,” she reports. “It was really fun to be wearing this plastic belly,” she says. “It makes you waddle; it makes you walk and carry yourself differently. And instinctively, I was constantly touching my belly. It was pretty funny. I was like, ‘Oh yeah, this is why pregnant people are always rubbing their belly.’” However, playing the new mother didn’t necessarily translate into her aching to become one herself today. “My dream has always been to adopt, so I’m sure that I will adopt at some point,” she says of her future family plans. “Whether I have some of my own or not kind of remains to be seen.” Sporting workout pants, sneakers, and a North Face jacket on an unseasonably chilly day in the “real” Los Angeles, Chriqui says that her Entourage character, befitting the overall exaggerated vibe of the show, “is the most glamorous version of myself. I’m a total tomboy in real life—ask anybody who knows me.” Clearly, the actress is being a bit modest—Chriqui looks plenty dazzling, even makeup-free and with her long, dark locks pulled back in a loose ponytail, sipping on a green almond milk smoothie after her morning workout. “Sloan is somebody that I could look at and be like, ‘Wow, I want to be like that; I want to be effortlessly chic and really philanthropic, and I want to breeze through life.’ That would be amazing.” In truth, that description sounds quite a bit like Chriqui herself. Born in Montreal to Jewish Moroccan immigrants, Chriqui grew up just outside of Toronto, where her childhood dreams of becoming an actress began to take hold at age 10 when she landed her first part, in a McDonald’s commercial. She went on to a series of roles on television and the silver screen, the biggest beyond Entourage being the $200 million-grossing Adam Sandler comedy You Don’t Mess With the Zohan. “My manager always jokes that there’s my career before Entourage and after Entourage,” says Chriqui, 37, who had her first big break in the 2000 big-screen comedy Snow Day. “Looking back, I’m a little bit dumbfounded. It’s like the gift that kept giving for six years.” Equally as important as that career success are the enduring friendships she’s made over the course of the six years spent filming the HBO series. “To this day, the guys really are like brothers,” she says of her costars—Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, and Jeremy Piven. “Maybe they don’t keep in touch on a daily basis, but I really feel like when we do see each other, it’s like coming home. If I ever needed one of them, I could call and be like, ‘I really need you right now,’ and they would be there.” The feeling is clearly mutual. “She’s just so lovely, intelligent—obviously beautiful—she’s got a good heart,” Grenier tells Ocean Drive. “We’ve always bonded over the years in some of the environmental work that I’ve been doing and she’s certainly doing it as well. There are so many people in the business that are affected, and she’s just real.” Originally, her character, introduced in season two, was meant to have a three-episode arc, but over the years became a part of the fabric of the show. Sloan McQuewick resonated with viewers, and provided a sort of antidote to the high-octane antics of the group of testosterone-fueled Hollywood high rollers the show chronicles. “She represented something stable, a groundedness,” says Chriqui of her character. “Even though she came from Hollywood royalty, she was not jaded. She’s the kind of person that a lot of people would aspire to [be]—mainly, she’s a good person, whereas the show showed every color of the spectrum of our industry, which isn’t always so nice. There was almost a bit of relief when it came to Sloan.” Chriqui imbued the role with a palpable gravity, an understated poise that she refers to as “being in your power as a woman.” That, she says, is a theme in her life that has really served her on screen and off. “When you can walk through life feeling confident and feeling good about yourself—whether you [weigh] an extra five pounds or not—and it comes from deep within, that is really powerful.” The actress’s latest project couldn’t be more of a departure from the glitzy streets of Miami and Hollywood: TNT’s Murder in the First, which kicked off its second season on April 15. “I’m so excited to be a part of this show,” says Chriqui, who binge-watched the first season over the holidays.

character, a half-Israeli/half-Mexican sergeant in a gang unit who spent time in the Israeli army, is “a total badass. She’s super guarded and doesn’t wear her emotions on her sleeve. I’m just discovering who she is, and that is so exciting for me as an actor.” Equally exciting for Chriqui are the philanthropy projects to which she dedicates her time off the set. “I’ve started working with this amazing organization called I Am That Girl (iamthatgirl.com), to empower young women and let them know that they are powerful and they are incredible and they can change the way that they feel about themselves and therefore change the world. And I really believe that.” Chriqui also invests her time and effort in Raise Hope for Congo (raisehopeforcongo.org). “It’s just the most dangerous place in the world for women to exist; they use rape as a weapon of warfare. It’s terrifying,” she says. “And yet, these women there, their strength and their courage are something that we can learn from. They create these communities where they help each other, and they want their voices to be heard, so it’s really this very strong theme in my life. The more that I learn and the more that I grow, the more being in my power is everything.” She had an important early role model in terms of finding her inner strength: her mother, who passed away when Chriqui was 16, after a long battle with cancer. “My mother was a very powerful woman. And she always encouraged me to go after my dreams,” she remembers. “She said to me when I was 13, ‘You’re going to become an actress for the both of us.’ My mother had a flair for dramatics and was very beautiful as a young woman, and I believe the story goes that she was asked to be Miss Casablanca, but in a very traditional Jewish home, that was not okay.” “I always had this very strong support. It wasn’t until I was older that I was really able to appreciate the gift that she had left me in a short amount of time: everything from cooking and setting a beautiful table and just the tradition of being a fighter,” Chriqui continues. “My mother was such a fighter. The cancer just devoured her, but to the last moment she fought and lived life; two weeks before her death, even though it would take her four hours to get ready, she was very coquettish and she was getting ready and you’d ask, ‘You need help, Mom?’ And she’d say, ‘Nope.’ She was going to do it on her own. And those are the kind of things that when I least expect it, I remember them and go, ‘Wow.’” When Chriqui was in her early twenties, her father and stepmother set down roots in South Florida, where they bought a place in Delray Beach. “Every time I’d visit, I’d of course have to hit Miami,” says the star, who admits to having toasted a few wild New Year’s Eves in town, and loves the art scene and the city’s laid-back vibe (“Everything’s easy here!” she says). Although raised in El Salvador, her boyfriend, actor Adrian Bellani, was born in Miami and still has relatives in the area, so these days, Miami is as much about family time for Chriqui as it is relaxation. She raves about an entire week spent being pampered at Canyon Ranch and enjoying the city’s fare, whether that’s at the more upscale Soho Beach House or the many great Cuban mom-and-pop places where she indulges in “a good café con leche with condensed milk— when else do you ever [get] that?” OD

Then I went to work for the City of Miami for Jorge Pérez, and got involved with the housing issues to redevelop inner-city areas. What has the transition to The Related Group meant to you? It’s been an incredible ride. I live on Key Biscayne, and when I walk on the beach, I’m able to see the tip of South Beach, those beautiful high-rises, and know that I had a part in that. How are you shaping the future of Miami? We’re building the Biscayne Line, a bayfront pedestrian path that will link properties in Edgewater. On South Miami Avenue, we are big proponents of making that a Lincoln Road type of street during certain times to [allow] public transportation and cut traffic. What are the advantages or disadvantages to being a woman in your field? You have to command respect by portraying confidence [in order] for [men] to look past your physical attributes. At the same time, women have a way of nurturing people along [to get] the best performance possible. Who is your role model: The most influential person in my life was my father. He was always a friend. That support and belief in me was incredibly sustaining. Best advice he gave you: Lead by example. I hope I’ve instilled that in my sons. 315 S.

The Community Conduit
PAMELA SILVA CONDE The coanchor for Univision’s highly rated Primer Impacto news program, Pamela Silva Conde has won six Emmy Awards, was one of People en Español’s “50 Most Beautiful People,” and has cohosted The View. She’s also a strong believer in using her platform to help shape her community. Did being Miami-based give you a career advantage? I always wanted to do Spanish media because I wanted to serve my community. Miami’s a pivotal point. You have to be where the action is. What role do you see Miami having in the world today? Miami has had an evolution in terms of news impact. We just built the largest newsroom in the country with a joint venture we did with Fusion, and were able to bring Univision News and ABC network [together]. It may be five or 10 years, [but] Miami’s definitely going to be a more competitive city than it ever was. How do you pay it forward? With the [Pamela Silva Conde Scholarship], we have given six scholarships at Florida International University. I’m involved with the students because I want to maximize the impact that these scholarships have. That’s the purpose of doing philanthropic work, to build new generations of people with the same mentality. How else do you give back to the community? I’m part of the committee of St. Jude Miami and I’m on the national advisory board for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. There’s also Amigos for Kids, which focuses on neglected and abused children. Throughout the year, we give counseling and seminars for families. We want to empower parents. How do you manage it all? The second you start thinking, I could do this, it actually becomes manageable. Your attitude influences everything. univision.com 192

To what type of projects are you drawn? First, it has to resonate with me in a way that I can see it as an extension of myself. I’m conﬁdent if something moves me, it’s going to resonate with audiences. I want them to be moved, entertained, and to be a different person at the end of it. Whether it’s Ballers, [TNT’s] Wake Up Call, or G.I. Joe: Retaliation, it should make an impact. What made HBO’s Ballers, out in June, so exciting? It’s a love story to the NFL and to Miami. It’s the truth about what happens when [athletes] leave the ﬁeld and they’re struggling and trying to be better. For Dwayne and I, we know where these stories came from. You’re as dedicated to giving back to South Florida as you are to your family, ﬁtness, and business. My ﬁrst taste of business came from a student work program [at the University of Miami] in the school of business. The women around me were incredible mentors. Being involved as a trustee and the past alumni [association] president was natural. An investment in philanthropy [in South Florida] has such great ramiﬁcations. I established The Beacon Experience for 63 at-risk students. We have been tutoring them and giving them social support [since second grade]. When they go to college, our foundation pays for their tuition. What’s your secret to balancing it all? Take care of yourself ﬁrst. I love bodybuilding. My training is an expression of myself. With a healthy body, I can make greater decisions.

One thing you wish the rest of the world knew about Miami: There is a community here [of] hard workers [who] want to make more of themselves. How did you get started? Interning at Wilhelmina when I was 15. I ran the model boot camp. The girls would come in and they didn’t know what to wear, or they were awkward. Some were shy, and I tried to break them out of their shells. I would take them shopping and make them feel comfortable. Eventually, I started doing that solely. Biggest influence in your life: My mom is my biggest role model. She’s been through a lot, and she’s a single mom. [She] is a jewelry designer; I started working with her when I was 13, going to trunk shows. That’s where I learned to be sociable, talking to people, selling them things, making them feel comfortable and beautiful. Best style advice she gave you: Not to be like the others. Go against the grain. How do you want to impact Miami’s fashion industry? There is a market here that is growing. Miami—where you live—should be a part of who you are. This is a beach town, not Beverly Hills. I want people to embrace who they are and feel comfortable wearing what they want. Sexiest quality in a woman: Simple elegance. A woman who’s beautiful, intelligent, and confident but doesn’t need to talk about it and is humble. How do you deal with imageideal pressures in your industry? It’s difficult. I’ve learned to have thick skin. It’s about being comfortable in who you are. Your personality shines more than anything. Advice to your younger self: This too shall pass. One day, none of this is going to matter. dnabydani.com

What’s a typical week for you? I have three incredibly important jobs: being a mom to my three children first, representing my constituents in congress, and then serving as the chair of the Democratic National Committee. The secret to maintaining the balance: A partner who can keep you grounded and be there day-to-day when you can’t. Also, to not be afraid to ask for help. Who influenced you in life? My parents instilled in me that a little girl in America can grow up and be anything she wants—even the president of the United States. It inspired a lot of confidence in me. I want to pull another woman up the ladder as I climb. At 41, you were diagnosed with earlystage breast cancer. What was your reaction? There was no other option for me except survival. After going through a year of seven surgeries privately, I introduced the EARLY Act, which is the Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young Act. How would you like to influence Miami’s many changes to come? Helping to ensure that we have the transportation funding that is essential for us to move around effectively if we’re going to continue to grow and be an economic international hub. Also, we have to get a handle on the impact of global warming. We’re at ground zero when it comes to climate change and sea-level rise, so we can’t pretend that’s not an issue. wasserman schultz.house.gov
The Groundbreaking Architect
LAURINDA SPEAR In 1977, Laurinda Spear, along with her husband, Bernardo Fort-Brescia, cofounded Arquitectonica, eventually helping establish the firm as one of the world’s most recognized names in architecture. Today, the company has 10 global offices and a portfolio of significant international works, including Brickell City Centre here in Miami.
Spear has won an AIA Silver Medal and the Rome Prize in Architecture, and the landscape architecture arm of her firm, ArquitectonicaGEO, has worked on prominent projects such as the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science and the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Clothing and jewelry, Spear’s own
What did you envision when you started Arquitectonica? I thought we would be able to do great designs and travel the world. I wasn’t focusing on success. What was a major turning point in your career? The realization that, to stay relevant to myself, I had to become a landscape architect as well. It changed how I look at architecture, planning, buildings. It’s a more thoughtful way of approaching architecture. What has it been like to contribute so much to Miami’s makeup? Our firm has a lot of great, really competent people in it. My contribution has been to make [Arquitectonica] a vehicle for other great designers and thinkers and people who’ll move to Miami to be part of changing the urban environment. How has your firm evolved? Architects peripherally have to be involved in the politics of how things work if they expect to get things done. If you want to make changes in your environment, you have to have a voice. When we first started out, we definitely did not have that voice. How would you like to have an impact on the future of Miami? By having a viable, lively architecture, landscape, and interiors firm that attracts people to work and live here who also will be changing it. 2900 Oak Ave., Miami, 305-3721812; arquitectonica.com
The Multifaceted Passion-preneur
EVELINE PIERRE Little Haiti native Eveline Pierre’s varied interests have created a dynamic background for her.

Why did you want to start the museum? Growing up, I was fortunate enough to go to Haiti every summer. It taught me at a very young age that what I would see in the media wasn’t necessarily what was happening in Haiti. I felt I could tell a better story. How did you become an empowerment coach? [Through the museum,] we teach kids to have self-esteem and self-respect, and feel honored that they are Haitian-American. A lot of times when we went to the schools, they were denying the fact that they were Haitian, so we [tailored] our programming to meet that need. Why focus on young women and Miami’s CaribbeanAmerican workforce? That segment of the population is not quite where we need to be. [Women’s Technology Alliance] is trying to empower women with the tools to be able to come to the table. These women are looking for empowerment via money, marketing, and mentorship. I’m also starting Miami Caribbean Code. The Beacon Council says there are 900,000 CaribbeanAmericans in the workforce in South Florida. The main issue I hear when I go to tech conferences is the workforce is not here. Why not work with this workforce that’s here so they can be economically viable and be a part of the larger picture that is happening in South Florida? 141 NE Second Ave., #105C, Miami, 305-371-5988; haitian heritagemuseum.org

What’s your work-life philosophy? You don’t have to [work] 24/7 to be great; you have to be smart at it. I have a family, children, grandchildren, organizations that I’m involved in, a husband, parents. I still like to get to the gym every day, play polo and ride horses, play tennis every week. You’ve said your trick to balancing it all is being present. This is one of the major secrets in life: compartmentalizing. When I’m at work, I do what I need to, and I love what I do. But if I’m with my grandchildren, I’m not answering my phone. If I’m out to dinner with my husband, my phone is in my bag. Philanthropy is a huge part of your family’s lives. When I first met my husband, he encouraged me to get involved with the [ Jewish] Federation. He used to say, “The more I give, the more I get.” When we came down here, we got involved with the JCC, and we pledged to build a theater there. We would bus in schools of children who had never gone to the theater [as part of the Alan & Diane Lieberman Children’s Cultural Arts Series]. Now we’re very involved with the Bass Museum, and we’re going to build a new wing on the Bass. [Art] makes the city thrive. You must be at an event every night. [Alan] is on the board of the New World Symphony, which we go to two or three times a month. I’m on the Bass and the Greater Miami Jewish Federation boards. We’re active at the [Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts]. We probably go once a week. How do you want to help shape Miami’s future? If you participate, just like anything else in life, you get so much out of it. Miami is giving me a lot more than I give Miami. 1680 Meridian Ave., Ste. 102, Miami Beach, 305-788-5030; sbirealty.com

Tell us about the programs at the center. Thirty percent of our programs are geared to innercity, underprivileged, [and] foster care youth that have never seen the water. We’re educating these groups and bringing them on free field trips. We also do a Patterns of Nature art project with an artist, where we create different marine animals [using collected] garbage. Does environmental awareness spill over into your personal life? It’s who I am. It’s why my sister and brother and I have all decided to be here in Miami. It’s now our turn to say what we need to see in the future in Miami. And if we want it for future generations, we have to teach children. You’re also championing child literacy as the youngest member and vice president of the board of Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library. Libraries are restructuring; I wanted to participate in that conversation. I grew up going to the Coral Gables library. [It] was really important in my life. What does it mean to be influential at a young age? When I came [back] to Miami, I saw the lack of leadership at my age. Since being on these boards, I realized that everything I say, they are connecting with. These boards need young insight; they need fresh voices. 6767 Crandon Blvd., Key Biscayne, 305-361-6767; biscaynenaturecenter.org OD
Objets d’affection de MiaMi Miami design enters a new era as starchitects, international art lovers, and now the Maison & objet aMericas decorative arts fair flock to South Florida.
New Yorkers often like to refer to New York as the center of the universe. But if you were a top-caliber architect or designer anywhere in the world right now, you’d probably be more inclined to reserve that claim for Miami. Thanks in part to the sophisticated international crowd that regularly attends Art Basel in Miami Beach, the demand for residences and hotels commensurate with their tastes have upped the ante on Miami’s architecture scene. Savvy developers such as The Related Group, Swire Properties, and Terra Group, who under stood the value of name-brand designers as marketing tools for their new developments, began enlisting top names to
create their buildings. Now, not only are there arguably more world-class architects designing luxury hotels, signature condominiums, high-profile cultural institutions, and even landmark garages here than anywhere else in the US, but flocks of wealthy North and Latin Americans, Europeans, Russians, and Chinese have been arriving in droves to partake of the first-class city Miami is becoming, partly as a result of their influence. To sate this sophisticated crowd’s appetite for high design, new waves of furniture, product, and fashion designers from all over the globe are setting up shop in the rarefied Miami Design District as well as in the edgier and more affordable Wynwood and Ironside

ALISON ANTROBUS & RUBY RAMIREZ With an impressive project list that includes Icon Brickell and Prime 112 in Miami, Alison Antrobus and Ruby Ramirez have consistently been tapped as a creative force for major product manufacturers and design projects since they began partnering in 2011. The two met while working at the helm of the Miami offce of the internationally acclaimed property and design development frm Yoo, which works with design stars Philippe Starck, Jade Jagger, Kelly Hoppen, and Marcel Wanders on multifaceted urban development projects such as the new 65-acre Metropica in Sunrise, Florida, as well as others in Mumbai, Singapore, Moscow, and Buenos Aires. Though their training and experience are rooted in interior design—both are architects with award-winning residential, restaurant and hotel, retail, and private jet projects under their belts—each is applying her design skills to new realms. Antrobus is making a mark in the fashion world with her revolutionary patented handbag, called the Antrobus Bag, and Ramirez is fusing her love of artisanal craft and international travel in a jewelry collection she plans to launch later this year. “Design is about creating a narrative and a sense of theater,” says Ramirez. “Theater for me is the emotion that carries you, that lingering impression and at times a sense of wonderment.” Evidence of this idea will soon be seen in the common spaces of the Muse condominium, which they are currently working on in collaboration with building architect Carlos Ott, and the Palazzo del Sol on Fisher Island.

ArtefActo For more than 35 years, Artefacto has been creating some of the most sought-after contemporary and classic interiors in the world. Born in Brazil, the Artefacto brand has exploded in America, with retail stores located in Coral Gables and Aventura, and shipping all around the globe from Miami.

enclaves nearby, expanding the nexus of the design community north and south along Biscayne Boulevard. Solidifying Miami’s ascendance in the global design firmament is the arrival of Maison & Objet Americas, the preeminent French decorative arts trade show, which launches in Miami Beach this month.
Over the past several years, a serious flock of international talent—starchitects, if you will—began shifting the aesthetic of Miami’s new buildings. They include OMA, the firm of legendary Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas; New York- and Toronto-based Yabu Pushelberg; Pritzker Prize-winning London-based architect Zaha Hadid; knighted British architect Sir Norman Foster; French designer Philippe Starck; Swiss superstars Herzog & de Meuron; Italian master Piero Lissoni; and New York architect Richard Meier, to name but a few. All told, the architectural talent enriches the fabric of the city with what Coconut Grove-based architect Max Strang refers to as “the connective tissue” that links the new buildings with Miami’s rich design legacy—and its environs. The buildings designed by these global starchitects, as well as significant local firms such as Arquitectonica, Revuelta, and Max Strang Architecture, are a departure from the ubiquitous, safe white boxes seen a generation prior, and they have initiated a movement within the real estate community to take historical, social, or environmental context more deeply into account. Part of this movement is a vibrant sense of synergy with the surroundings: sculptural building shapes that meld with both lush landscapes and an urban context. Think Herzog & de Meuron’s Pérez Art Museum

Charlotte Dunagan Since moving from France to Miami almost 20 years ago, designer Charlotte Dunagan has been making her sophisticated mark on large-scale, high-end residences and boutique commercial projects throughout South Florida. Dunagan began to cultivate an eye for collectible art and furnishings under the tutelage of her parents— her mother was an interior designer, her father an antiques dealer—when she was growing up in Paris and traveling with them throughout Europe. She later began her formal arts education at the MGM School of Design in Nice, France, and completed it at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, where she graduated with honors before launching her own interior design business in Coral Gables. Since then, Dunagan has relied on her wide range of international resources to fnd undiscovered materials and one-of-a-kind pieces to create inherently unique interiors that refect her clients’ personality and individual style. “When I frst meet [my clients], I pick up on all the small details that make them who they are—their clothing, their accessories, even the car they drive provides me with the style direction that is appropriate for their home. I’m a strong believer in building structures that are timeless and creating a very sophisticated background that we will love forever.” Charlotte Dunagan Design Group, 2100 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Ste. 920, Coral Gables, 305-438-0130; atmospherecreations.com

Miami downtown or the firm’s Lincoln Road parking garage in South Beach, as well as Danish wunderkind Bjarke Ingels’s torquing Grove at Grand Bay towers in Coconut Grove. A greater commitment to fine art and furniture and a livelier color palette also add more dimension to the holistic mix of ideas prevalent in top buildings, such as the SLS Lux hotel and condo designed by Yabu Pushelberg and slated for completion in Brickell in 2016. “We wanted to up the luxe quotient by creating a modernized version of old Havana with colors of Latin America—emerald greens, deep blues, and soft pinks—reviving them as a character study in a more sophisticated and exotic way,” says designer Glenn Pushelberg of Yabu Pushelberg. At SLS Lux, the public spaces will get a lift from significant paintings and sculptures by renowned contemporary artists like Fernando Botero and Matias Duville. “People are so art centric today that it’s easier to bring in work by great artists that are recognized and appreciated,” adds George Yabu. Art is also playing a major role in the latest project by Alan Faena, the developer of the much-touted Faena project on the Beach. The building’s developer has not only enlisted a team of top talent—including Foster + Partners and OMA—to design an exceptional condominium, but he is also helping infuse the surrounding neighborhood with a sense of community anchored in culture. “Alan Faena is known for having an art forum in mind in the neighborhoods he transforms,” says Shohei Shigematsu, the lead architect from Koolhaas’s firm OMA, which is working on part of the project. “Our project in the Faena District is a cultural center that represents a new typology that’s emerging—it’s not a museum, or gallery, or theater, or

Nisi BerrymaN After opening her home furnishings store, Niba Home, in the Miami Design District a decade ago, self-professed “design junkie” Nisi Berryman has been consistently catching the attention of industry luminaries like Kelly Wearstler, Nate Berkus, Juan Montoya, and Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, as well as celebrity clients like Shakira and Kate Spade.

performance space, but rather one that is flexible enough to accommodate diverse art forms in a shared cultural space.” By externalizing the structure of the building, the architects devised column-free interiors, making the space exceptionally adaptable. They also integrated the scale and accessibility of the cultural component into the urban fabric to offer walkable options for activity that bring a sense of community to the area. Sensitivity to site and history also drove Terra Group President David Martin’s vision for The Residences at Park Grove in Coconut Grove. Shigematsu, who is leading OMA’s design of this project, says, “When we met the developer [Martin], he gave us a presentation on the history of Coconut Grove as the birthplace of the first community in Miami and highlighted its lush nature and bohemian background. Since the site of the project is on the bay at a nexus where the city grid ends, it was important that the project not become like a fortress, as so many exclusive condos do, but rather relate to the environment with a new sense of porosity.” As such, the three towers that comprise the project rise in undulating formation to reflect the “poetic organic shapes of the archipelagos and keys of the surrounding area,” Shigematsu explains.
INTERNAL AFFAIRS Less emphasized yet particularly important in this new generation of buildings is a focus on protecting the planet. Developers and designers are integrating features that take sustainability and human impact into account. For example, hotel visionary Barry Sternlicht aimed to reinvent the industry standard for socially responsible hospitality with his new 1 Hotel & Homes
project now open on Collins and 23rd Street. At the property, Sternlicht prioritized using eco-friendly materials and sustainable building ideas. And in the more than 30 single-family homes he’s currently working on in Miami, Max Strang is connecting the residences he’s designing to the environment and the city’s design legacy, utilizing local or eco-friendly materials like Florida keystone, oolite, ipe, and Resysta, a man-made woodlike surface made of sea salt, mineral oil, and rice husks; his homes also feature layouts that promote natural ventilation. This coalescence of great buildings and big design thinkers in Miami also offers an opportunity to consider on a grander scale the city’s overall sustainability in the future. “Miami is literally the most exciting city in the US right now, if not all of North and South America,” says Shigematsu. “It’s the only place that’s really enabling the two Americas to share their cultures; it’s amazing to witness. And if we can begin to make more resilient architecture that responds to the changes in climate, Miami has the potential to become a model for other cities to learn from.” OD

Dividing his time between Miami, New York, the Caribbean, and Milan, interior designer Hernan Arriaga crafts distinct interiors for some of the most exacting names in the social scene, such as Kelly Rowland, J. Christopher Burch, and Lea and Roy Black. “Inspiration can come from anywhere!” exclaims Arriaga, who is currently at work with his partner, Fabio Lopes, on residential projects in various parts of the US and the Middle East, including the former Al Capone mansion in Miami Beach and Alexander Soros’s townhouse in New York. “It is around us, everywhere we go, every minute, every day. You can fnd it in a fower garden or in a whimsical sky. We just have to stop and understand beauty and the immensity of the simplest things.” With that point of view, it’s no wonder he’s valued for the highly personalized homes he designs around the world, including a mostly black pied-à-terre in New York, a mostly white Delano-inspired house in Long Island, and a color-drenched condo in the tropics—all brimming with exquisite furnishings, fne art, and, often, elegant antiques. “There is nothing more exciting than incorporating an old, beautiful piece into a modern room,” he says. “Antiques bring in history that tells a story and becomes part of your family—they also allow you to mix genres and periods to create a magical space with an incredible touch of glamour.” 3401 N.

Big-name architects from miami and Beyond are changing the skyline with groundBreaking condo projects from sunny isles to south Beach. by jon warech
Turnberry Ocean Club, designed by New York architect Carlos Zapata, will rise to 54 stories in Sunny Isles Beach, with a projected opening in 2018.
Miami, with its beautiful beaches and sunny skies, has always been easy on the eyes, but in a city packed with eye candy, there is a new star in town: architecture. One by one, new structures are rising that are not only reshaping the landscape, but also getting recognition on a global scale for their impressive, innovative design. Leading the way is Bernardo Fort-Brescia. Born in Lima in 1951, Fort-Brescia and his wife, Laurinda Spear, are founders of Arquitectonica, a firm with projects in 54 countries and 700 architects in offices around the world. On the company’s to-do list is a slew of projects for The Related Group, including One Brickell, Brickell Heights, SLS Brickell, Hyde Midtown Miami, and Paraiso Bay, the 53-floor luxury tower in Edgewater. “It’s different architecture for different locations,” says Related Group President of Condominium Development Carlos Rosso. “That’s the beauty of Bernardo; he’s always reinventing, and every building he has is going to be a signature building in Miami.” continued on page 220

Fort-Brescia is also working with the Melo Group on Aria on the Bay (250 NE 25th St., Miami, 305573-0666; ariaonthebay.com), a new 647-unit ultraluxury condominium that’s under construction in the Arts & Entertainment District. The 53-story tower was designed with both Biscayne Bay and the geometry of some of the world’s greatest opera houses in mind. “When you start sketching, you start looking at metaphors; you start looking at ideas and
shapes you love,” says Fort-Brescia. “When you look out at the bay, you see the wave crests on a windy day and how they form this interesting break. When I looked at this building and its position along Biscayne Bay, I thought of those shapes and how they could become almost a painting of that scene.” Arquitectonica isn’t the only game in town. The Related Group and Dezer Development are working together on the Residences by Armani/Casa in Sunny Isles Beach (18975 Collins Ave.; acasa residences.net)—at 60 stories, the tallest tower in the area. While there is obvious buzz surrounding the interiors by Giorgio Armani, it’s the exterior, by world-renowned Argentina-born architect César Pelli, that will reshape the Sunny Isles skyline. The design features unique cabanas cascading down to the beach as an ode to a Mediterranean shorefront village. “We love designing projects in Florida,” says Pelli, whose firm, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, also designed the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. “Its climate, its lifestyles, and its cultural mix lend themselves to exciting designs. I believe we captured this feeling in the Residences by Armani.” New York architect Carlos Zapata designed the 54-story Turnberry Ocean Club (19950 W. Country Club Dr., Ste. 803, Aventura, 305-933-3000; turnberry oceanclub.com), set to open in Sunny Isles Beach in 2018, and Herzog & de Meuron, which made its mark locally with Pérez Art Museum Miami and 1111 Lincoln Road, will also take its talents to Sunny Isles Beach with Jade Signature (17070 Collins Ave., Ste. 250, 305940-0335; jadesignature.com), Fortune International Group’s 192-unit tower set for completion in early 2017. The impressive structure will rise 57 stories high and has long, uninterrupted horizontal lines (much like 1111) that carry the eye off to the Atlantic. The Pritzker Prize-winning Zaha Hadid Architects
designed One Thousand Museum (1040 Biscayne Blvd., Fifth Fl., Miami; 1000museum.com), a 62-story über-luxurious residential tower in downtown set for completion in 2017. Based in London, Zaha Hadid Architects is known for creating the Dubai Opera House, the BMW Central Building in Germany, and the London Aquatics Centre. At One Thousand Museum, Hadid has incorporated a unique crosshatch exoskeleton and arcing organic shapes, along with enormous units, making for a rather exclusive downtown experience. Right around the corner in Museum Park is the all-new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, designed by Grimshaw, a firm with offices in New York, Melbourne, London, Sydney, and Doha, Qatar, which has designed everything from Wimbledon to the National Space Centre in the UK. The museum, set to open in 2016, includes a planetarium, a stunning 500,000-gallon Gulf Stream aquarium that can be viewed from underneath or above, and a structure built to take advantage of the Biscayne Bay breeze. The elegant yet efficient design will use architecture as a teaching tool complementary to the exhibits. Over on South Beach, award-winning architect Rene Gonzalez’s design for Louver House (311 Meridian Ave., Miami Beach, 305-203-0170; louver house.com)—Mast Capital’s South of Fifth boutique condominium—connects the interior home with exterior tropical ambience by blurring the line between lush balcony and living space. And on Fisher Island, Kobi Karp is designing Palazzo del Sol (1 Fisher Island Dr., 305-535-6071; palazzodel sol.com), a 10-story, 47-residence condominium on the private island—the first new condo construction on the island in more than seven years. Sticking to the community’s Mediterranean-inspired style, Palazzo del Sol will feature contemporary living spaces and massive outdoor terraces to enjoy the Government Cut views when completed in the first quarter of 2016. No matter who is behind the design, every neighborhood will have a new look in the coming years, and that looks pretty good from here. OD

Big Boom, LittLe NeighBorhood AffordAble prices And A budding Art scene Are boosting LittLe RiveR into A big, new hot spot. by jon warech
The word “potential” is frequently thrown around when discussing new pockets of Miami and the young residents who call these areas home. Such is the case with Little River/Lemon City/Little Haiti—overlapping neighborhoods north of the Design District and west of Miami’s Upper Eastside where young creators are turning a once run-down area into a hip spot to maximize their creative potential. “All three neighborhoods are growing together,” says Tony Cho of Metro 1. “Rising tides raise all ships, as they say.”
Old Faces, New Places: People like Avra Jain, who helped reshape the MiMo District; Ofer Mizrahi, who brought in an eclectic and creative vibe to Ironside; and Tony Cho of Wynwood fame are the predominant faces behind the rejuvenation of this multi-named neighborhood. The trio joined forces to create Little River Urban Investment and buy properties like the nearly 129,000-square-foot Rail 71 industrial site at 7205 NE Fourth Avenue. “It’s where the makers are,” says Cho of the area. “It’s not only artists but manufacturers and production in larger-format warehouses. There’s going to be a lot more to talk about.”
In The hooD Creative Hub: A smorgasbord of creativity, Miami Ironside (7610 NE Fourth Ct., 305-438-9002; miamiironside.com) just west of Biscayne Boulevard is a block of art and design studios, workspaces, fashion, event spaces, and Ironside Pizza (because even creative types get hungry). best MusiC: While most of the entertainment lies on US-1, Churchill’s Pub (5501 NE Second Ave., 305-757-1807) has been serving up cocktails and giving musical acts, including Marilyn Manson, their start since 1979. rise aNd GriNd: The official sign that this neighborhood has made it—Panther Coffee—is coming soon to the hood with a 3,000-square-foot coffee shop/ training facility. 5934 NW Second Ave.; panthercoffee.com FresH Makers: Jugofresh (350 NE 60th St., 786-472-2552), the
now-famous juice and organic food spot, calls Lemon City home in a sleek warehouse headquarters designed by Shulman & Associates. FlavOr tOwN: Argentinean food in Little Haiti might be geographically confusing, but the grilled Spanish octopus and pork confit at Fiorito (5555 NE Second Ave., 305-754-2899) are delectable in any culture. Haute sHOP: Sweat Records (5505 NE Second Ave., 786-693-9309; sweatrecordsmiami.com) is hipster heaven with a variety of LPs and CDs, books, T-shirts, vegan snacks, and, of course, free Wi-Fi. art sCeNe: With the rising costs of Wynwood rents, artists are packing their paintbrushes and heading north to workspaces such Fountainhead Studios.

As newcomers continue to crowd the condos of Miami Beach, locals and familyoriented buyers are also heading north along Collins Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard to find alternative residences. Katrina Campins, a Miami native and luxury real estate specialist with Trump International Realty, and
Lana Bell of One Sotheby’s International Realty’s Sunny Isles office explain what northern neighborhoods have to offer. Katrina Campins: With Trump, I’m still selling Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Miami Shores, Biscayne, and it’s general real estate. You’ve
always seen the international buyers coming to Miami, and more people want to be here because of the weather. You also see a lot of New Yorkers—that’s causing congestion. People are finding other places to reside because Miami Beach is becoming touristy on another level. Lana Bell: I live in Sunny
Isles because I think it’s the best, location-wise. It’s 20 minutes from South Beach; you’re 20 minutes from Fort Lauderdale. We have everything—we have parks, schools, Aventura, Bal Harbour, gorgeous beaches. My clients buy big units on the beach. In Sunny Isles, you can get much more for your money than South Beach. It’s more family-oriented [and] a quiet area—that’s what attracts people. That’s why they slide north. KC: A lot of people that were on Miami Beach for years have decided to move to the Biscayne corridor. You saw
that at Bay Point, Belle Meade, and now it’s continuing to go north into Miami Shores. Sans Souci and Keystone have been there forever, but now you’re seeing people from Miami Beach making that transition to those neighborhoods. They have amazing school systems; people are moving there for that. You still see kids riding their bicycles in the neighborhood. You see couples walking with their dogs. LB: Families who have three or four kids, plus the staff, need the space. New projects [in Sunny Isles] are continued on page 226

spectacular. The Estates at Acqualina, which is completely sold out, is breaking all grounds pricewise because the square footage is 4,500 square feet, four bedrooms. That’s what people need. In Sunny Isles, we’re talking about $1,500 and up per square foot, which is nothing compared to South Beach. We’re waiting for our $3,000 per foot—it’s coming. It will get there because South Beach has no more space unless they demolish old buildings. Sunny Isles is going to have 17 new condominiums. We’re going to be the most expensive new city in South Florida. KC: The Shores is still very reasonable. You can get something at $300 a square foot.

Everything happens in a cycle. Now the pendulum is swinging, and designers are adding lots of woods and warmer metals such as chrome with brass and gold tones. Rose-gold metal accents also were introduced at the Fall High Point Market in High Point, North Carolina.

“I wanTed HammoCk HouSe To Feel lIgHT and FloaT above THe ground.” —william taylor Taylor, who grew up in Sarasota, was inspired by the work of Paul Rudolph, a modernist and member of the Sarasota School, architects known for light-filled contemporary design. Taylor’s inspiration came from Rudolph’s Cocoon House, a one-story guesthouse with a concave roof on Siesta Key built in 1950 for W.R. Healy. “His work in Sarasota was modernism with lightness of scale, construction, and materials, combined with a lightness of spirit,” says Taylor. “It’s something I worked very hard to emulate in Hammock House. So much of modern design is heavy and sits on the ground like a structural weight. I wanted it to feel light and float above the ground.”
The property—built by Coastal Construction, with an interior by Jeffrey Lamb and landscape designed by Robert Parsley—is located on Hammock Drive, a private cul-de-sac with neighbors about one quarter of a mile away. Originally, the home was in a stand of oak trees that had to be moved to position the structure. Now, the repositioned oaks frame rather than screen the residence; some of the branches evoke the image of an umbrella over part of the roof. “The overall feel of the house is comfortable and chic,” adds Lamb. “Italian modern furniture is paired with vintage designer pieces from the ’60s and ’70s, while the art and accessories are a combination of vintage and modern as well.”
Art Deco-inspired concrete eyebrows are covered with lightly stained cypress that is carried inside on the wood ceiling to unify the exterior with the interior. Faces of the eyebrows are lined with copper that patinas to bronze immediately and then ages into green. “The copper and wood give an extra detail and extra richness to simple, traditional eyebrows,” says Taylor. “I wanted to dress it up a little bit so that it could be softer and lighter.” Taylor, author of Classic Florida Style: The Houses of Taylor & Taylor (Monacelli Press) with his wife, Phyllis, and author Beth Dunlop, has designed everything from Italianate palazzos to Art Deco ConTInued on page 234

“I don’t like to stack rooms. I like the light to be seen from as many sides as possible,” says Taylor, a fifth-generation Floridian.
District hotels and Key West bungalows. In his work, he always pays a respectful homage to Florida’s sun and climate. “I have always been so much aware of the sun as a fifth-generation Floridian,” he says. “I don’t like to stack rooms. I like the light to be seen from as many sides as possible. Although the house is oriented east and west, it also gets north and south light in the living room. The light and shadows change all day.” Interior stone walls are the most salient detail. “I chose a pattern to lay the stone from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater. A local stone mason worked with us until we were happy with the design,” says Lamb. Taylor designed the stone detail to make it appear as if the house is on a fulcrum and as a way to balance the second floor, similar to how the Cocoon House balances on its sea wall. As most Miamians are aware, Coral Gables has a strict building code, and any design plans must be approved by a Board of Architects. “Most of the architects on the committee are modernists at heart,” says Taylor. “They were pleased to see a modernist design in Coral Gables. I think part of the reason is this is not a neighborhood of Mediterranean bungalows. It is a part of the Gables out in the country. Something modern could exist without too much contrast.” Taylor’s next project is another exercise in unconventionality; he is currently working on a design for a house in Sarasota with the client’s only instruction: “I want a tree house.” Taylor & Taylor Architecture & Interiors, 1211 Alton Road, Miami Beach, 305-534-9862; taylorntaylor.com OD

Now presideNt of ArtefActo, Paulo Bacchi pushes his fAmily’s icoNic furNiture compANy iNto New terrAiN with the first furNiture collectioN uNder his desigN directioN. by jean nayar
A pivotal player in defining Miami’s current modern style, Brazilian-born Paulo Bacchi has been transforming luxury homes and condos throughout southeast Florida ever since he launched the first Artefacto furniture showroom in Coral Gables in 2002. Originally founded in 1976 in São Paulo by Bacchi’s father, Albino, Artefacto is seen as an icon of contemporary furniture design in Brazil, beloved for its high-quality, clean-lined, and sustainable furnishings. After joining the

company at the age of 18 and tripling its business in Brazil in 1997, Bacchi set his sights on wider terrain and quickly captured the hearts of American design lovers when he brought the company’s warm modern aesthetic to Coral Gables, and later expanded his reach by opening showrooms in Doral and Aventura. “Clean lines infused with warm elements, such as natural fibers and textures, natural eco-friendly driftwood, and visually beautiful silhouettes,” are the keys to Artefacto furniture’s appeal, says Bacchi, who continues to raise the bar on the company’s growth. In addition to taking over the helm as president of the company this year, Bacchi is expanding its offerings with Arte | 5, his first solo collection of furnishings, which debuts in June. “It was only natural for me to choose to take my own style and signature and create a line of furnishings on my own,” he explains. “With the help of our design team in Brazil, [which includes 20-plus designers,] we created over 150 brand-new pieces,” says the visionary impresario. As an inspirational starting point for the new collection, he says, “we focused on original Brazilian [talents], such as Oscar Niemeyer,” who were instrumental in setting a sensuous modern tone in Brazil in the middle of the last century. As a result, most of the pieces feature simple, beautiful, organic curves. “The idea is to be able to see the lines, to see the silhouette,” he says. “We designed the collection to embody personalities rather than design trend styles—each of the five lines within the collection appeals to the senses in a unique way, engaging moods tailored to the setting they create.” Defined with posh materials, like plush velvet, hand-stitched leather, and carbon steel, the new furnishings are also likely to push the boundaries of Artefacto’s allure even wider as the international design set converges on Miami to attend Maison & Objet Americas this month.

A TAxing SiTuATion
As more And more northerners flee high-tAx stAtes for floridA’s greener pAstures, the proof-of-residency gAme hAs gotten increAsingly more interesting. by betsy f. perry residency is no longer just a trip to the DMV for a new license and voter registration switch, although flight tickets, hotel receipts, and golf scorecards might make for some nice supplemental paperwork. Kaplan emphasizes, “If you fly into New York, then spend one hour at the dentist before flying out, that counts as one day in the city.” An overnight spent in the city equals two days. In a landmark New York State tax case, a client went to court over four controversial days. Had he not won, his tax bill would have been over $26.5 million! One northern ex-pat says, “Every billionaire leaving New York or New Jersey is equal to a thousand residents, so everyone’s getting audited…. They want to see you’ve relocated your cars and that your artwork was moved from walls in the north to the south.” Of course no one wants to pay taxes, but as Gerald Posner, an attorney and author of The New York Times best seller God’s Bankers: A History of Money and Power at the Vatican, reported, “Before moving to Florida and attempting to hold on to my New York apartment, my accountant made it clear the state checks your Amazon shipping address, synagogue—even your burial arrangements.” With tax season in my rearview mirror, the temptation to move is like a siren song. But until I defect full time from that grumpy Mayor Bill de Blasio’d and vitamin D-deprived city, there’s no way to get away with anything. OD

No wonder Miami is at risk of being under water—between rising sea levels threatening to sink us and billionaires flooding South Florida, it’s a miracle we’re still afloat. Don’t believe any of those moguls who claim to be moving to Florida solely for the sunshine and saltwater, despite the Northeast having just endured this winter’s punishing weather. They’re fooling no one—including the insatiable IRS. Statistics reveal that 50,000 New Yorkers defect to Florida each year, yet there’s zero wiggle room for high-net-worth individuals who aim to establish Florida residency (and thus save themselves millions each year by “living” in South Beach for six months and one day). According to Steven Bryde, a principal in the Marks Paneth LLP tax practice, and Jay Kaplan—my watchdog and a partner in this accounting firm for the wealthy—for each Big Apple billionaire deserter, New York loses the revenue from a 12.46 percent tax imposed on one’s worldwide income, which is the country’s highest combined state and city rates. With money like that at stake, proving you’re in New York for less than 184 days a year, and that you really are a Floridian, is serious business. Says Bryde, “Aside from meticulous records tracking days spent out of New York, you need to paint a picture including location of family connections, where you keep ‘near and dear items’ like art, furs, and jewelry, and business connections.” Establishing Florida
