Dear readers, Welcome to our design and innovation issue. Paul Rand once said, “To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.” Contemporary advances in manufacturing and production have enabled nothing less than a modern renaissance in all forms of design, from creating new, distinctive models all around the globe. Design is inextricably linked to innovation and you can see it throughout the pages of this issue. On our cover, we have 706 Mission Street, 146 private residences located in the heart of San Francisco’s vibrant Yerba Buena arts and cultural district. Slated for completion in 2020, Four Seasons private residences at 706 Mission Street, San Francisco will combine spacious living and distinctive elegance with legendary Four Seasons personalized service. While, incorporating and preserving the historic Aronson Building and masterfully blending “historic” authenticity and modern innovation in two contrasting towers.

We further explore innovative design ideas, as HFM, the company offering the only street-legal self-driving shuttle vehicle joins forces with one of the leaders in the field of electric in-wheel motors- Elaphe Propulsion Technologies Ltd. Elaphe in-wheel motors will power HFM’s revolutionary Motionboard intelligent vehicle platform and create solutions for the future of mobility. Later in this issue, enjoy our carefully curated gift guide we put together in honor of Valentine’s Day. No matter where this Valentine’s Day takes you, I hope it is filled with love. And I hope our design and innovation stories we shared leave you inspired. Happy Valentine’s Day. Cheers!

Your first step on the road to your dream home was deciding in which fabulous high-rise tower you wanted to live…now what?

I have a new client who has just jumped from a smaller unit in another tower, to a much larger unit. The style is just not “their style”. This past year they have been diligently working at changing it. Because they have a larger unit, they have a larger balcony to work with.

I have shown them some retrospective drawings for some tiered planters, and differing sizes and heights of pots they can begin to landscape their decking with. We don’t want to cut off the beautiful views they have of the country club golf course across the road, but enhance their space with their own trees, and colorful plants. There are so many ways to decorate your personal terrace. You can bring your personality directly outside, expanding the living spaces you can enjoy. There are lots of pottery outlets in Las Vegas and Southern California where you can shop and start to get an idea how your personality can be reflected in this space. I would invest in a specialist for this area. One who understands the plants that will withstand the climate in your area, as well as design a space that does not impede flowing traffic patterns, but at

Slated for completion in 2020, Four Seasons Private Residences at 706 Mission Street, San Francisco will combine spacious living and distinctive elegance with legendary Four Seasons personalized services.


The project is the latest in an exclusive collection of Four Seasons standalone Private Residences offering residents premier amenities and services, independently managed by Four Seasons staff, which will complement the neighboring Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences San Francisco. Four Seasons debuted their standalone Private Residences at Twenty Grosvenor Square in London, followed by projects in Los Angeles, Marrakech, and now San Francisco.

These spacious residences will combine the outstanding luxuries and world-class service and amenities that Four Seasons is renowned for the world over.” White continues, “We’ve seen great success in destinations where we are able to offer multiple opportunities to live and stay with us, such as in San Francisco, Boston, Miami, and New York, creating a community of guests and residents who make Four Seasons a part of their day to day life.” ABOUT 706 MISSION STREET The new 45-storey, 510-foot tower will be built, developed and sold by 706 Mission Street Co LLC, an affiliate of Westbrook Partners, a fully integrated real estate investment management company with offices and projects around the world. 706 Mission Street Co LLC has developed and built the new tower adjacent to the celebrated Aronson Building with a private drive court on Third Street. The new building will be made of stone and glass and contain 146 spacious residences with stunning views of downtown and the San Francisco Bay. The historic Aronson Building, dating back to 1903, will be completely restored and repurposed as part of the project. Notable upgrades include refurbished wood-sashed windows, reworked terracotta materials, and more exposure of the inner structures of the ceiling slabs. “Juxtaposing the new and the historic has provided us with a wealth of architectural opportunities,” said Glenn Rescalvo, principal of Handel Architects, the project’s designer. “We embraced the opportunities for more spacious, individuated residences, with fewer homes per floor and a much greater mix of floor plans. These residences are much more like custom designed homes than condominium units.” “We are proud to bring the exclusive luxury of Four Seasons to this esteemed location in San Francisco,” said Matthew Kenney of 706 Mission Street Co LLC. “San Francisco is a world-class city that continues to grow at a remarkable pace, and with the addition of this standalone Four Seasons Private Residence, we will deliver an unparalleled experience.” CUSTOM, PERSONALIZED DESIGNS

Masterfully blending “historic” authenticity and modern innovation in two contrasting towers, the Private Residences will fill the Yerba Buena district’s last remaining buildable space with residences of world-class elegance and refinement. “We are excited to partner with 706 Mission Street Co LLC to bring our second Californian standalone Private Residence to life,” says Paul White, President, Residential, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “We look forward to providing guests and residents another opportunity

The Future of Mobility English HFM and Elaphe Propulsion Technologies Announce Cooperation on Pioneering Solutions HFM, the Company offering the only street-legal self-driving shuttle vehicle is joining forces with one of the leaders in the field of electric in-wheel motors - Elaphe Propulsion Technologies Ltd. Elaphe in-wheel motors will power HFM's revolutionary MotionboardÂŽ intelligent vehicle platform.



“To us, Elaphe is a perfect fit. Elaphe’s expertise and production competence in the area of in-wheel motor technology makes them the ideal partner for developing solutions for a sustainable and autonomous mobility of tomorrow,” says Dipl. Kfm. Wolfgang Bern, Managing Director of HFM. “In addition, the company also has very extensive testing facilities to put the motors through their paces.” “Our in-wheel technology is put through extensive automotive validation under a wide range of demanding operating conditions and loads” explains Urska Skrt, Head of Business Development at Elaphe, and adds: “Elaphe’s patented electromagnetic topology allows our motor design to be highly scalable, light-weight and the most compact on the market. Combined with intelligent motor control, it is the most simple and modular electric vehicle propulsion that enables ultimate packaging and user-centered design.” HFM’s scalable and modular Motionboard® platform allows adapting the vehicle built on top of the platform to its current needs, both in terms of length and width as well as with regard to the battery capacity, making it extremely modular and widely applicable. What sets the Motionboard® platform clearly apart from all others is that it meets the requirements for homologation in Europe as an M1 class vehicle (vehicles for passenger transport with a maximum of eight seats plus the driver).

“As a company focusing on compliance with all the requirements for type approval and homologation within the framework of existing and future legal provisions, reliability and safety are of course at the top of our list of priorities,” says Friedrich Soost, Head of Mechanical Development at HFM and responsible for the mechanical integration of the Elaphe in-wheel motors into the Motionboard platform. “Elaphe’s state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, extensive testing and quality control ensure that the in-wheel motors perform to our high standards in both regards.” The flexibility of HFM’s Motionboard platform requires the motors to cover a wide range of potential uses with significant differences in vehicle mass. In addition to delivering the necessary torque, the motors also have to be highly efficient to make maximum use of the installed battery capacity. “Elaphe’s in-wheel motors operate at over 90 percent efficiency and allow us to achieve extended operating ranges,” says Marcus v. Wilamowitz, Head of Electrical Integration and Functional Safety at HFM. “In addition to avoiding all the complications and unnecessary losses in gears and transmission, the distributed direct-drive with intelligent multiple-wheel control helps introduce new safety features and improves performance of traction and braking.” adds Gorazd Lampič, the CEO of Elaphe. “I am delighted that more and more leading companies in the field of sustainable and autonomous mobility are deciding to work with HFM, because we are the only ones able to offer an autonomous street-legal shuttle vehicle based on the Motion board,” says Bern. “I am looking forward to the cooperation with Elaphe and the fruits to be reaped from it in the years to come.”

The number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed has grown nearly 200 percent since 2000 and in 2019, that trend is expected to continue - but with a “less is more” twist. ‘We don’t see a lot of patients anymore who are bringing in photos of movie stars and saying they want to look like them,” says Dr. Jerome Potozkin, author of the new book Botox and Beyond: Your Guide to Safe, Nonsurgical, Cosmetic Procedures. “Most of our patients now just want to be a better version of themselves. They are taking advantage of the many low-cost minimally invasive procedures that have been introduced in the last few years.” Minimally invasive procedures usually have less pain, a shorter hospital stay (or no hospital stay at all) and fewer potential complications. Other advantages include the low cost and little or no downtime, as some of the procedures can be done over a lunch break. Plus, many patients like that there is less of a chance that their friends will notice a dramatic change in appearance. Dr. Potozkin, who is a board-certified dermatologist who is specially trained in the art and science of dermatological surgery, says just a few of the new trends expected to become even more popular in 2019 include: INJECTABLES The accessibility of injectables means there is less downtime for a procedure, lower cost and less invasiveness. Injectables, lasers, and skin resurfacing can be relatively quick procedures, often with immediately visible effects. MORE COSMETIC TREATMENTS BY MEN There has been a slow but steady increase in the number of men seeking cosmetic procedures as it becomes more mainstream. The total number of cosmetic surgical procedures performed among men was 1.2 million in 2015 — more than triple the number of men since 1997. EXAGGERATED COSMETIC PROCEDURES WILL DECLINE

LESS MEDICAL TOURISM What was once an emerging trend of people going to foreign countries for cheaper cosmetic procedures will continue to decline. “Horror stories of complications with no way to remedy them have resulted in many patients realizing that the cost savings are simply not worth gambling with their appearance,” Dr. Potozkin says. THE NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT This procedure delivers focused ultrasound energy deep into the skin, which causes it to lift and tighten and promote maximum collagen rejuvenation. “Collagen is what keeps the skin looking plump, but it decreases with age,” Dr. Potozkin says. “Studies show that collagen production continues to increase in the six to 12 weeks after the procedure, resulting in a tighter, more contoured look that can last for more than a year. “The number of people seeking non-invasive cosmetic treatments will continue to increase,” Dr. Potozkin says, “as even more innovative procedures are developed in the coming year.” About Dr. Jerome Potozkin Dr. Jerome Potozkin, author of the new book Botox and Beyond: Your Guide to Safe, Nonsurgical, Cosmetic Procedures is a leading dermatologist who practices in Danville, CA. He is a board-certified dermatologist and he is specially trained in the art and science of dermatological surgery. He completed his residency in dermatology at NYU Skin & Cancer Unit and is a member of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery. A clinical instructor at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center, Dr. Potozkin is also a preceptor for Lumenis Medical, training physicians from all over the world in advanced laser techniques.

Patients are increasingly wanting to maintain their general face structure, inherited family traits, and just generally wanting to look like themselves, but with a few refined tweaks.

If you’re looking to complete your Valentine’s Day look, a luminizer is the way to go. They are best used all over the face making your skin looking softer and younger. Luminizers are mostly shimmery and are meant to attract more light to the face. For a more-soft natural look you should go with a liquid luminizer. If you are looking for something more dramatic, it is best recommended to use an illuminator in a powder form. When purchasing a luminizer, the colors gold and bronze shades are best for olive and dark skin tones, for fair skin use colors such as pink and pearl.

After you have applied your foundation and concealer you can add highlight to your face for a more natural look. You can apply it to the top of the cheekbones, on the brow bone, above the eyebrow, down the nose and the mostly favored, right on the bow of the lip. Highlighting is an alternative to contouring where you can create the angles you desire and add depth to the face. Ex: Becca, Chanel, Elizabeth Arden

Ex: La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Fusion, Tom Ford Skin Illuminator Fire Lust

If you have fair skin you should purchase a honey-colored bronzer, for a medium complexion you can purchase a rose color. Bronzer are best applied after your face make up such as foundation, powder, concealer etc. but before you put on blush. The purpose of a bronzer is to add overall glow to the face.

Hôtel de Berri In Paris The Luxury Collection Announces the Opening of Hôtel de Berri In Paris



The Luxury Collection, part of Marriott International, Inc., announced the grand opening of Hôtel de Berri, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris. Owned by the Dokhan family, Hôtel de Berri offers eclectic, bold and refined designs devoted to the Parisian way of life. Meticulously styled by designer and artistic director Philippe Renaud, Hôtel de Berri features 75 guestrooms, including 35 suites, as well as Italian restaurant Le Schiap and cocktail bar Le Bizazz. The hotel’s preserved 3,000 square meter landscaped garden is a precious legacy of the building’s illustrious past. Situated on Rue de Berri, one of the most sought-after addresses in Paris that has been home to aristocrats, royals and prominent leaders in French society since the 19th century, Hôtel de Berri draws inspiration from the trailblazers of the French Decorative Arts period including painters, designers and stylists from Coco Chanel to Salvador Dalí, with interior designs reflecting the “Art de Vivre” ethos made famous in the heart of Paris. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the property was a private mansion for luminaries including Princess Mathilde and fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, Hôtel de Berri today aims to tell its storied history through the design of its rooms and public spaces. “As one of the world’s most desirable destinations, Paris continues to be the global epicenter of art, culture, gastronomy and fashion,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection. “Hôtel de Berri embodies sophistication and glamour, and opens doors to exceptional cultural offerings, for which The Luxury Collection is known. We are thrilled to welcome global explorers to enjoy a truly indigenous Parisian experience.” A PARISIAN RESIDENCE CELEBRATING THE GREATEST NAMES IN DECORATIVE ARTS Following the demolition of the property’s private residences at 18, 20 and 22 Rue de Berri, including the home once inhabited by fashion designer and 1930’s icon Elsa Schiaparelli, a vast office building designed by architect and city planner Maurice Novarina was constructed on the site. This unique building reveals an expressive, dream-like Parisian world within. “Hôtel de Berri is the only Parisian hotel to feature a Novarina façade,” said Philippe Renaud, who was adamant that the façade be preserved in its entirety. “This unassuming and neutral exterior, spanning 54 meters in length, is the gateway to a magical interior full of aesthetic paradoxes. From surfaces to colors and textures, the curious and quirky design elements of Hôtel de Berri are a deliberate step away from traditional hotel design.” Wisdom, eclecticism and humor are common threads that run throughout the design of Hôtel de Berri. The Dokhan family, together with Philippe Renaud, have carved out several different decorative themes and ambiances that present vibrant colors, detailed parchments, ancient Chinese furniture, wrought-iron lamps, sketches and paintings. Hôtel de Berri’s guest rooms and suites are divided into six categories: Deluxe Rooms, Junior Suites, Signature Suites, Prestige Suites, Berri Suites and the Suite Parisienne. Marble bathrooms feature heated flooring, Skinjay aromatherapy showers, TOTO toilets and luxury Diptyque products. Throughout, the hotel showcases elite pieces of Parisian art and interior design.

Located Steps from the Champs Élysées and the Prestigious Triangle d’Or Fashion District, Hôtel de Berri, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris Celebrates A ‘ rt De Vivre’ in the City of Light Madeleine Castaing, Henri Samuel and David Hicks are just some of the featured artists. The interiors also include subtle references to fashion designers such as Jeanne Lanvin, Marie-Laure de Noailles, Coco Chanel and, naturally, Elsa Schiaparelli, to whom this address was home for forty years. The Suite Parisienne, in all its neo-antique glory, is Hôtel de Berri’s Presidential Suite, boasting 115 square meters. The three Berri Suites, each spanning over 100 square metres, use similar references to illustrious previous owners and visitors, allowing for a new discovery around every corner. A PRIVATE RESIDENCE WHERE HOSPITALITY IS AN ART FORM From the Sculpture Room, to the vast Suite Parisienne, and from Le Schiap restaurant to Le Bizazz cocktail bar, Hôtel de Berri offers a timeless sanctuary for international travellers and local Parisians alike. The tone is set on arrival with a dramatic entrance hall where one’s eye immediately notices the grandeur reminiscent of a royal residence. From there, guests proceed to the Sculpture Room, populated by statues, busts and sculptures, some of which originate from the castings workshop at the Louvre. Considered the social hub of the hotel, the Sculpture Room features creative culinary offerings. The forty vintage fireplaces found throughout the property further the feeling that the hotel is an eclectic, Parisian residence. AN EPICUREAN ADDRESS Helmed by Executive Chef Michele Dalla Valle, Hôtel de Berri’s signature restaurant, Le Schiap, presents approachable Italian cuisine in a refined yet relaxed atmosphere. Featuring seasonal ingredients and unique specialty dishes, the Le Schiap’s menu combines Italian flavors with French classicism. The restaurant is flanked by an expansive mural by artist and illustrator Hippolyte Romain who paints his own unique perspective of Paris and pays homage to the city’s high society of days gone by in this magnificent piece of work. Hôtel de Berri’s Bar Bizazz offers a cocktail menu that is both inventive and unconventional, engineered by mixologist Christopher Gaglione. Concoctions by this surprising duo are specially created based on a certain location or ingredient. Hôtel de Berri, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris is located at 18-22 Rue de Berri, 75008 Paris, France. For more information, please visit www.marriott.com/HoteldeBerri.

Bellagio Debuts Sadelle’s Overlooking Iconic Resort Conservatory Bellagio is proud to welcome Sadelle’s, SoHo’s popular vintage-style restaurant from Major Food Group and one of the most desired reservations in New York City, to the resort’s award-winning culinary portfolio. In a coveted location overlooking the exquisite Bellagio Conservatory, Sadelle’s brings an elevated perspective to all-day dining in Las Vegas through culinary craftsmanship forging a new identity for approachable cuisine normally found in cafés and bakeries.


The restaurant’s stunning locale, Ken Fulk design, fun vibe and legendary menu – including bagels and smoked-fish platters, triple-decker sandwiches, burgers, salads and all-day caviar offerings to name a few – will make it a destination experience for tourists and locals. The 10,000-square foot space envelops guests in a timeless combination of colorful pastels and bespoke touches transporting diners back in time to a grand café along an old European boulevard. “We are taking everything great about Sadelle’s in New York and taking it to the next level in


Las Vegas,” said Major Food Group Managing Partner Jeff Zalaznick. “The incredible space, overlooking the Bellagio Conservatory, along with an elevated menu focused on quintessential classics allow us to create a one-of-a-kind culinary experience from early morning through late night. I think if we do our job, we’ll set a new standard in the city for what the all-day dining restaurant is all about.” MGM Resorts International Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage Strategy Ari Kastrati said, “Sadelle’s delivers a bold personality and next-level craftsmanship to the all-day dining experience that simply does not exist in Las Vegasright now. We are grateful for this partnership and look forward to their beloved NYC restaurant delivering memorable dining experiences to our Las Vegas guests.” CUISINE FOR THREE MEALS A DAY Sadelle’s brings the perspective and culinary acumen typically only synonymous with fine dining to the realm of New York City style classics. Throughout the day and night, impressive presentations of hand-rolled bagels, lox towers, chopped salads, sandwiches and other favorites translate the well-known genre into an unforgettable feast. Roaming Carts – The dining experience begins with Sadelle’s Pastry Cart, displaying a selection of baked goods including Sticky Buns, Raspberry Donuts, Chocolate Chip Cake and more. A roving Bloody Mary Cart, stocked with fresh pressed juices and house-infused liquors, visits tables to stir up inspired variations such as the Classic, with infused horseradish vodka; the Green Bloody, with green olive vodka, and the Ghost of Mar, with black pepper vodka. Decadent Dinners – Mainstays from the original New York City location – such as the Spicy Fried Chicken with acacia honey and coleslaw – join new signature supper offerings created by the culinary team, including the Grilled Branzino with Meyer lemon and sesame spinach and a New York-style Ribeye with smothered onions. Tableside Service – Sadelle’s presents tableside experiences offering a robust selection of chopped salads including the Waldorf, Beverly, Freddy, Greek, Cobb and Lobster, which are tossed tableside. The Whole Warm Lobster adds yet another dimension to the show, as the crustacean is de-shelled and dressed in front of guests’ eyes.

With Playful Design, Exceptional Craftsmanship and Nods to Old-World Traditions, Sadelle’s Gives a Bold, New Identity to Three-Meal Restaurants in Las Vegas

February 2019

Breakfast Classics – From the approachable Classic Egg Sandwich with fried eggs, bacon, and Muenster cheese, to an opulent Benedict topped with caviar, Sadelle’s Towers showcase a selection of smoked fish, including smoked salmon made in-house, as well as other bagel accoutrements. Other favorites include Cheese Blintzes, French Toast, and Sadelle’s famous Blueberry Pancakes.


EXTRAORDINARY DESIGN To create a theatrical stage for Sadelle’s service befitting of Bellagio’s grandeur, Major Food Group worked with designer Ken Fulk, the visionary architect who brought the original SoHo location to life. For the Las Vegas iteration, Fulk took the core elements of Sadelle’s in New York City and augmented them in a stylized manner inspired by the exuberance of Belle Époque Paris. DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS Extravagant Entrance – Upon arrival, guests encounter a beautiful bakery cart, accented by a crystal chandelier and herringbone parquet floors, and surrounded by paneled blush walls. Moving into the space, the wall palette shifts to Sadelle’s signature cerulean hue as a whimsical lacquered pastry cart, enamel-topped bistro tables and woven café chairs set the tone for the boulangerie experience throughout the lower level. Main Dining Room – With welcoming banquettes, upholstered seating and intricate floors featuring five types of stone in a bold herringbone pattern, the dining room is refined and glamorous. Intimate lighting, expertly attuned for leisurely brunches, late-night suppers and everything in between, complements soft furnishings, wood tables, brass accents, mirrored walls and coffered ceilings, allowing the space to seamlessly shift from a bright and airy brunch spot to an intimate evening destination. Elevated Bar and Lounge – Rounded lines, like the demilune bar, clamshell lounge chairs and serpentine sofas set the bar and lounge at Sadelle’s apart from the rest of the restaurant. Softly upholstered furnishings invite parties of all sizes for cocktails and late-night lounging, while spacious cocktail tables can accommodate guests seeking appetizers, bar snacks or sensational sips. Private Dining Room – Like many of Fulk’s hospitality projects, the private dining room offers its own evocative experience. In a nod to Art Nouveau, the carpet undulates into a radiating starburst pattern and the upholstered walls feature a feathery botanical print.

The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. – midnight. To make reservations for 10 or more, call Sadelle’s directly at (702) 693-8401.

sbe Grows Global Culinary Portfolio with the Launch of Carna by Dario Cecchini Contemporary Steakhouse Concept with Legendary Italian Butcher to Debut at Baha Mar sbe, the leading global lifestyle hospitality company, and Disruptive Restaurant Group, a division of sbe, introduce the debut of a contemporary steakhouse Carna by Dario Cecchini at Baha Mar resort destination in Nassau, The Bahamas. The launch of Carna marks the opening of the world-famous butcher’s first dining concept in North America. The signature steakhouse will join an array of sbe restaurants throughout the $4.2 billion Baha Mar resort destination including Fi’lia, Katsuya, Cleo, Bungalow, Bond, Privilege, Monkey Bar, Umami, and an additional exciting venue to open in early 2019. Carna steakhouse is the latest culinary venture from Disruptive Restaurant Group’s Culinary Lab aimed to deliver unique dining concepts around the world. Opening on December 21, Carna was conceptualized by award-winning Dario Cecchini, the legendary eighth-generation celebrity butcher from the village of Panzano in the Chianti region of Tuscany, Italy. After taking over the family business from his father in 1976, Cecchini found his mission - to protect the art of butchery with the belief that all cuts of meat can be utilized when cooked properly, eliminating waste and promoting sustainability. “We’re extremely honored to partner with Dario on his first restaurant in North America. The talented butcher is an industry pioneer with profound respect for his craft,”


said sbe CEO and Founder, Sam Nazarian. “Carna will be an incredible addition to the property’s already prominent array of international restaurants. I would like to thank Graeme Davis, President of Baha Mar for working with the sbe team to launch the only steakhouse of its kind in the region.” “As a leading culinary destination in the Caribbean, we pride ourselves on Baha Mar’s elevated and exciting restaurant offerings for our guests,” said Graeme Davis, President, Baha Mar. “We are thrilled to introduce Carna by Dario Cecchini to The Bahamas and the culinary traditions of Tuscany and continue to create a sophisticated and contemporary dining destination where guests will always experience the freshest, finest ingredients and incredible service in a spectacular atmosphere.” “The way a butcher hones his craft is by finding love in what he does,” said Dario Cecchini. “The profound respect we have for the animal translates into the way we transform it from a simple cut of meat to something personal with its own unique history. Carna’s prime location as part of Baha Mar in The Bahamas allows me to educate guests from around the world on the art of butchery while providing an unforgettable dining experience in this beautiful beachfront destination.”


The menu at Carna by Dario Cecchini highlights prime cuts of the finest steaks sourced directly from farmers in the world’s most prominent locales, including Catalonia, Spain and Panzano in Cecchini’s home of Chianti. The steaks are dry rubbed with Dario’s signature Profumo del Chianti sea salt and cooked on a charcoal grill to fully express each flavor profile. Once prepared, the cuts will be served tableside by Carna’s Head Butcher. Focusing on unrivaled quality and all-natural ingredients, Carna will also serve fresh seafood and harvest vegetables, as well as an extensive international wine list. Signature dishes at Carna will include Cecchini’s specialties such as: • Chianti Wagyu Beef Tartare - Truffle Aioli, Watercress, Quail Egg Yolk • Panzanese Steak - 32oz Wood Grilled Linz Heritage Black Angus Prime • Tuscan Porterhouse - 32oz 21-Day Dry Aged Linz Heritage Angus Prime • Wood Grilled and Broiled Tomahawk 54oz Darling Downs F1 A4 Wagyu

Featuring indoor and outdoor seating, Carna will showcase modern design elements with a bold, earthy color scheme by James Beard Award Winning design firm Meyer Davis. Guests arrive to an intimate welcome, making their way through beautifully-detailed butcher and wine cases, highlighted by soft pin lighting, inspired by the classic glass cases of elegant jewelry stores. Guests continue on to enter a grand, glowing main bar and a sleek dining room, worthy of the exquisite meals served within. sbe subsidiary, Dakota Development, led by President Joe Faust, provided design management services. “Designing Carna by Dario Cecchini was a unique opportunity to reinvent the look and feel of a traditional steakhouse for a resort environment,” said Will Meyer and Gray Davis, Founders of Meyer Davis. “We hope to promote the values of Chef Dario by prominently displaying signature cuts from his extensive menu, and surrounding guests in a rich and thoughtfully designed environment that will leave them feeling inspired.”

Handling the day-to-day duties will be Executive Chef Thomas E. Griese, who previously worked at Chef Michael Mina’s Mina Group. Before opening Carna, Chef Thomas Griese traveled to Panzano, Cecchini’s home village in Chianti, to train under the butcher at his Tuscan restaurant and perfect Cecchini’s traditional butcher cuts and signature menu items to be featured at Carna in The Bahamas. Prior to working with Dario, Chef Thomas served as Executive Chef at Mina’s RN74 in Seattle, and prior to that, as Chef de Cuisine at Michael Mina 74 in Miami. Joseph Yalung will work closely with Chef Thomas as Carna’s Head Butcher.

Circa Resort & Casino to Debut in Downtown Las Vegas, December 2020 Developers Derek and Greg Stevens to Build Downtown Las Vegas’ First Ground-Up Property in Decades Developers and brothers Derek and Greg Stevens have officially unveiled plans for Circa Resort & Casino, a brand-new integrated gaming resort in Downtown Las Vegas, slated to open in December 2020. A welcome addition to the iconic Fremont Street Experience, Circa will bring a new energy to Downtown as the first ground-up resort development in the area since 1980. The innovative property will celebrate the timeless spirit of the city while leading the charge for a bold new era with game-changing guest offerings.


Downtown Las Vegas, attracting new waves of visitors and locals while leading the turnaround success story of “vintage Vegas.” Often found taking the time to greet and interact with visitors at his properties’ centerpiece bars, Derek’s genuine and approachable style of guest appreciation has challenged the status quo of resort ownership and earned the endearment of customers. WHAT’S IN A NAME?

“There is a lot of unmet demand for fun in Las Vegas,” said Derek Stevens. “At Circa, our goal is to create a destination resort in a historic part of the city, while showing guests the time of their lives. We plan to double down on the world-class service Las Vegas has always been known for while bringing personalized experiences to a new level.”

In the spirit of staying true to the city, Circa will deliver a new experience built on the original principles of old-school Vegas hospitality. It will mix the glamour of vintage Vegas with modern luxuries and cutting-edge technology, honoring the golden age of the city. Guests can expect top-notch entertainment while enjoying honest, attentive and friendly service.

Over the past decade, Derek has worked alongside Greg to develop several ventures, including the D Las Vegas, Golden Gate Hotel & Casino and Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. The duo’s investments have played a role in reshaping

Catering to the growing use of Uber and Lyft, and housing 1,201 parking spaces, the centrally located nine-story garage will be the first of its kind in Downtown Las Vegas, allowing guests to conveniently and efficiently travel to and from the property.

This will allow bettors to have in-depth analysis from a roster of experts including broadcasters, industry professionals and athletes. Construction is currently underway on the 1.25-million-square-foot property, which will punctuate the Las Vegas skyline as the tallest tower north of the Strip. The resort will be defined by a bold design, accented by a backlit roofline and an expansive multi-tiered pool amphitheater. Featuring several pools and a massive screen with the latest high-resolution technology, the amphitheater will offer a unique watch-party atmosphere for sunseekers and sports fans. The venue will be complemented by a delicious food and beverage menu, private cabanas and music from DJs and special guests. Circa’s interior will welcome the return of a Las Vegas icon: Vegas Vickie, the kicking cowgirl who was once perched high above the Fremont Street Experience, will become a key design feature and must-see photo opportunity within the hotel’s lobby. A GRAND REVEAL After months of speculation, Circa’s name, design and neon sign were revealed last night during an evening of festivities. After an appearance at the annual 2019 State of the City address, Derek invited attendees to

enjoy an afterparty at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, where he promised to unveil all-new details about the upcoming project. Derek was joined onstage at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman during the public celebration. Among eager onlookers were a number of notable city and state officials, property executives, community partners and members of founding Las Vegas families including Freddie Sarno, son of casino developer Jay Sarno; Nevada Stupak, son of casino owner Bob Stupak; Michael and Brendan Gaughan, son and grandson of hotel and casino magnate Jackie Gaughan; and legendary bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro. The grand reveal took place after a thrilling introduction video, concluding with the unveiling of a huge neon sign emblazoned with the property name that will eventually be a part of Circa’s exterior. Known in Las Vegas for his eclectic collection of custom blazers, Derek did not disappoint as he donned a custom tuxedo complete with a jacket displaying Circa’s logo. Additional details about Circa’s amenities and opening will be announced in the coming months. To learn more information about the new Downtown Las Vegas property, visit circalasvegas.com.



Silicon Valley Still Reigns Supreme for Hottest Housing Markets, but the South Will Heat Up in 2019 San Jose claims the top spot for the second straight year, but Southern markets with growing tech economies make up half of the top-10 list of the hottest housing markets this year San Jose claims the top spot for the second straight year, but Southern markets with growing tech economies make up half of the top-10 list of the hottest housing markets this year The hottest housing market this year will be San Jose, California, according to Zillow, the second year in a row that Silicon Valley earns that distinction even as the winds are gradually shifting in the nation’s priciest housing market. Meanwhile, the South is drawing new residents seeking affordability and jobs in some up-and-coming tech markets.


To find the hottest housing markets, Zillow looked for places where we expect home values and rents will outpace the nation in 2019, strong income growth, good job opportunities with low unemployment rates and a growing population. San Jose has the lowest unemployment rate and the most jobs per person among the 50 largest U.S. metros, along with the highest home values and forecasted home-value appreciation. While other West Coast markets – most notably Seattle – have slowed down, San Jose continues to see double-digit home value growth. It has led the country

For-sale inventory in San Jose has doubled in recent months but remains tight. It also ranked highly for income growth, with the typical household income growing by 6.8 percent. Five of the hottest markets are in the South, where housing is more affordable, drawing in new residents. Median home values in Jacksonville, for example, are one-sixth what they are in San Jose, and rents are about one-third the price. Orlando had the biggest population increase of the hottest housing markets, up 2.8 percent. The impact of the tech industry on housing is also apparent on Zillow’s list. Along with the San Francisco Bay Area markets of San Jose and San Francisco, four metros (Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and Nashville) in the top 10 were finalist markets for Amazon’s HQ2 and have growing tech industries. “When it comes to the country’s hottest housing markets, long-time leaders are hard to displace, but a number of up-and-comers are nipping at their heels.

“We are excited to bring new and exciting entertainment to Beverly Hills each year that showcases the spectacular talent and traditions steeped in history from China,” says Julie Wagner, CEO of BHCVB.

“We always look forward to this time of year when we pay special tribute to our Chinese friends,” says Mayor of Beverly Hills, Dr. Julian Gold, adding, “Beverly Hills loves the energy and vibrancy of the Chinese New Year celebration and each year seems to be more colorful and entertaining.”
