n August 1968, Miami Beach played host to the Republican National Convention—picture Rockefeller girls dancing down Collins Avenue greeting nominees in miniskirts, larger-than-life Uncle Sams on stilts, and elephants roaming the streets. At the convention, Richard Nixon, who had lost the 1962 race for governor of California, made a political comeback defeating Nelson Rockefeller, Ronald Reagan, and George Romney to snag the Republican presidential nomination. The atmosphere at the event was undoubtedly light, despite the political gravitas of the election’s outcome—Nixon’s win that year marked the fracturing of the New Deal coalition, which, with the exception of the Eisenhower administration, had allowed Democrats to dominate Washington politics for 36 years. “There was a lot of excitement,” recalls Lillian Cox, who, at 20 years of age, was on-site as a press assistant for the RNC Communications Department. “It was an opportunity to schmooze and party with people you’ve just seen on TV or had a fight with in Congress.” In February of this year, Miami officially announced that it would be bidding for the 2016 Democratic National Convention, making this its second run at a nominating convention since hosting two in 1972 (it also pursued the DNC in 2000). If the city meets the Democratic legislative requirements, which vary from labor laws to raising sufficient funds, Miami would conceivably benefit from an influx of tourism and the ensuing economic impact, despite an initial cost projection of $50 million. Plus, Miamians would have a front-row seat at the AmericanAirlines Arena to a significant historical event, as many speculate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to be the “Front Runner” for the Democratic presidential nomination.

M

iami may now be synonymous with sexy swimsuit culture, but the city’s first major foray into the sartorial business actually came in July of 1965, when local swimwear company Alix of Miami was acquired by Jonathan Logan Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of women’s ready-to-wear. “This marks the first time a nationally and internationally oriented women’s apparel manufacturer will take an active role in the… Miami fashion market,” The Miami News reported. “[I will] work my head off to continue to make Alix of Miami one of the finest firms in the country,” Alex Schneidman, the then-president of the company, said of the deal. It’s no surprise that Alix piqued the interest of a major distributor—the pieces were known for being over-the-top glamorous; many were even studded with rhinestones. It was “South Beach” before there was a South Beach. For a touch of overseas glam, this 1959 swimsuit (PICTURED), printed with a pussy-willow design of tan and pale pink, was inspired by “the Far East and France.” The matching jacket was made still more chic with the addition of an oversize collar. But most appealing for many women: The suits were incredibly flattering. “With Alex [Schneidman], the figure is all-important,” The St. Petersburg Times wrote of the pieces in 1955. “He does his best to provide one where nature failed.” Schneidman also drew much of his design inspiration from the hospitable temperatures of Florida. “This is a creative area,” he told a fashion editor from The Miami News in 1969. “It has a climate that can give birth to a lot of fashion ideas.” OD

please judge away. What you see is often what you’ll get inside: a beautiful blend of elegance, luxury, and depth, plus a peek at the South Florida lifestyle. We’re proud to have Victoria’s Secret Angel Erin Heatherton lend her beauty and grace to our annual Swim Issue. On the cover she poses right here in the heart of South Beach, while on the inside she’s modeling the hottest swimwear in honor of the annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim and SwimShow—hundreds of events, fashion shows, and parties all showcasing the most beautiful designs on earth. The people in attendance aren’t too shabby, either. (No, you aren’t seeing things; that probably is a supermodel sitting next to you at dinner.) Ocean Drive is not unlike the city of Miami itself: eye-catching and alluring on the outside but equally stunning on the inside… and growing. The foundations of the real estate boom have been laid, the groundbreakings and first digs complete with Champagne, shovels, and hard hats. It’s an exciting time we are all going to look back on fondly when the Faena District, The Residences at the Miami Beach Edition, and SLS Brickell, not to mention 1000 Museum, Marea, the Porsche Design Tower, and so many more, all inaugurate a new era of Miami luxury. It’s possible this time next year we’ll be riding up the elevators in some of them. For now, we’ll celebrate what we’ve got: a quieter time than the coming months, when temperatures soar into the triple digits. They may be scorchers that only the locals dare enjoy, but either way it’ll be perfect weather for a swimsuit…. Enjoy the summer.

we’re convinced Miami’s lazy days of summer are long gone. In just a few weeks, the who’s who of the swimwear industry will once aga in descend on Miami Beach for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim and the Swimwear Association of Florida’s highly anticipated SwimShow. It will be a busy week of models, monokinis, and summer-night soirées. Speaking of swimwear, Erin Heatherton, hot off her breakout with Victoria’s Secret, is sizzling on our cover for this year’s Swim Issue. We chatted with the Midwestern beauty about how being discovered a few years ago in South Beach led her to walking the runways for the famed lingerie brand as well as many of the biggest names in fashion, including Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, and Christian Lacroix. Since the days of Heatherton’s discovery, much has changed in Miami. The skyline is shifting before our very eyes. The historic Miami Herald building finally came down, the Port of Miami tunnel is making its presence known along I-395, and cranes tower above the city, ready to build our future. We at Ocean Drive are proud to be here for the city’s current history in the making. With so much going on, you might not want to check out of town for the whole season, but instead check into a stunning hotel right here in our own backyard, soak up some sun, and enjoy a much-deserved staycation. After all, despite the rising temps, Miami is still the coolest place to be. Hope to see you around town…

...WITHOUT WHOM THIS ISSUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE JULY/AUGUST 2014

Randall Slavin Randall Slavin made his photography debut in The New York Times Magazine and since then has shot for GQ, Esquire, and Rolling Stone. In 2011, he won Hollywood Style’s Photographer of the Year award. You can see his photographs of cover model Erin Heatherton on page 196. What music did you play on the set of the cover shoot? I played music from

my calypso band, TJ McCall and the Red Wine Sick, throughout the day to put us in the tropical mood. What’s one Miami location where you would love to do a shoot? I would love to do a

bikini shoot in the wilds of Everglades National Park; I think that would be legendary. Who inspires your work? With this shoot in particular, I looked at a lot of old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editions to get the feel for the day. I also looked at work by Raphael Mazzucco, Walter Iooss, and Ben Watts—those guys do swim better than anyone.

Brett Graff Author of the nationally syndicated column “The Home Economist,” Brett Graff’s work has been published in The Miami Herald, Maxim, Glamour, and Forbes, among others, and appeared on CNN, CNBC, and a host of local Miami affiliates. What did you find most inspiring about Shareef Malnik and the Make-AWish Foundation on page 114? Malnik describes a

meeting between Adam Lambert and a teenage girl who relied on Adam’s music to get her through her hospitalization. Malnik says no one had a dry eye, and now, that includes me.

personal collection of books about UFOs, many with cryptic handwritten notations. Who knew the Honeymooner was so obsessed with finding little moon men? What accounts for Miami’s ever-expanding cultural scene? Low barriers

to entry and a can-do cowboy spirit. New Yorkers like to hire a lawyer and a zoning expert before they cross the street; Miamians prefer to just start running.

Ana Heretoiu The editor at Eater Miami, Ana Heretoiu is a restaurant obsessive who spends most of her time exploring Miami’s ever-changing culinary scene. In this issue, she scopes out Fort Lauderdale, on page 182. Last meal on earth—what would you order? Mac and

cheese, Brussels sprouts, fries, some sort of pasta dish, multiple octopus dishes, and poutine—what a weird meal that would be. Why do you think Miami has such a rich culinary landscape?

Because there’s so much room for growth—Miami is still finding its style in so many ways; it’s young on the scene, and because of that we have a little of everything. Miami is big enough that famous chefs make sense, but small enough that five-seat Cuban cafés also do. Anything goes.

White-Hot SUPERFAN AND DWYANE WADE SWEETHEART GABRIELLE UNION CAPS OFF ANOTHER MIAMI HEAT SEASON. BY JULIA FORD-CARTHER

T

his basketball season, all eyes were on Miami as head coach Erik Spoelstra and the Miami Heat took to the court in its quest to win another NBA Championship title. As play-off season got underway, fans clamored into seats, sports bars, and onto couches to witness the team once again display its dominance. Front and center at each game was actress Gabrielle Union enthusiastically supporting her fiancé, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade. In Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Union showed her support in an allwhite ensemble from on-trend boutique Intermix, and watched her husband-to-be and his play-making teammates take down the Indiana Pacers on the Heat’s road to a potential three-peat. The team sailed through four quarters with substantial leads, securing a 2-1 lead in the series with the evening’s 99-87 final score. After cinching the victory, there was much to celebrate at Hyde AmericanAirlines Arena, where Union joined rock star Lenny Kravitz and other Heat fans as the Miami Heat’s official DJ, DJ Irie, kept the crowd amped until all the confetti fell and the Champagne stopped flowing.

n a Saturday afternoon last spring, Edgardo Defortuna put his internship in Miami. “My father, being rather traditional, wouldn’t let her go three sons—Andres, 10; Alexander, 8; and Edgardo (known as alone, and convinced me to go with her for three months,” Defortuna recalls. Edgardito), 7—into the car and drove them on a tour of the sales “I told her, ‘After this, you are on your own!’ But he is still waiting for me to centers for the buildings owned by his company, Fortune International.

The same factors that attract Defortuna’s real estate clientele today minium complex on Sunny Isles Beach. But here, the kids were perplexed, and Defortuna found himself bombarded with questions. Why, they asked, worked their allure on him decades ago. “The ease of life here was incrediafter five months of construction, could they only see a scale model of the ble: the weather, the beaches, the safety—you could drive the car you wanted and not worry about having to have security or face being kidnapped,” he 57-story parallelogram tower?

Overall, half of the units had found buyers at preconstruction prices ranging not the confidentiality or the attention to detail” or even the understanding of from $2 million to more than $26 million. “Everyone is in love with Miami the dynamics, he explains. Soon after finishing his degree, Defortuna launched Fortune’s real estate sales brokerage and sales division. And he right now, and they all want to own a bit of it,” says Defortuna. Defortuna himself knows a lot about what it’s like to fall for Miami, although didn’t just confine himself to Miami, waiting for clients to come to him. He he never intended to do any such thing when he first set foot in the city in the hopped on planes and set out for Buenos Aires, Rio, Santiago, and other major late 1970s.

continued from page 103 them through the same kind of epiphany he had experienced, creating in the process an entirely new class of buyers. “It wasn’t on as great a scale as we see today, but this was a big wave of buying from Latin America, from sophisticated investors who like to own bricks and mortar,” says Defortuna. Today, Fortune International’s general real estate business has 12 offices and 1,000 agents, and generates sales of about $1 billion annually, while the division devoted to sales of development properties (those of Fortune International’s Andrea Greenberg and Fortune’s buildings and other construction projects) generates another Edgardo Defortuna with David Beckham at a $1.5 billion.

Jade Signature belong. Returns on these ventures can’t be calculated on an annual basis: Fortune may only undertake one or two projects at a time, and each may take three to four years from beginning to end. With Jade Signature’s landmark tower, designed by Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron, about to join the Miami skyline, Defortuna is already scouring the landscape in search of his next project. “It’s harder and more expensive to get iconic sites,” he says. The problem isn’t that the prices are too high— even though the cost of waterfront real estate has skyrocketed, the price of residential real estate is The 9-to-5 hustle keeps more than keeping pace, and the cost of the land, he says, is never more than 10 percent of the total Edgardo Defortuna commuting project for such a luxury development. “If you have to pay heavily to get the right piece of property, from site to site, yet he still that’s not so bad; it’s more a question of how to get the next site,” Defortuna says. “You have to be more devotes time to enjoying the creative, perhaps buying individual units in an existing condominium, terminating it, and knocking it community he helped to shape. down. It’s a lot of time and energy, but if you want a site on Miami Beach, that’s what is involved.” In the immediate future, Defortuna has more plans for Sunny Isles Beach, where, along with the Château Group, Fortune has acquired 250 feet of oceanfront property for development, and is All in the family... developing a project in Brickell. Longer term, however, he sees Miami’s development stretching Edgardo Defortuna’s Peru-born wife, northward, to Hollywood Beach and, ultimately, as far as Fort Lauderdale, where he’s working on a Ana Cristina, works closely with him project with The Related Group, whose CEO, in sales and design; her personal Jorge Pérez, is a personal friend as well as a felstamp can be seen on Jade low Latin America-born Miami real estate Signature in places such as the building’s dual sunrise and sunset developer.

O

ver the past 10 years, CBS4 weekday evening coanchor Irika Sargent had traveled to Miami probably half a dozen times. She, like most people, ran to the beach, hit the hot spot restaurants, and enjoyed the kinds of entertainment that tourists from all over the world come to South Florida to savor. But over that time, Sargent witnessed an evolution in this city—growth that ultimately turned this vacation town into a place to settle down. That led her to try it out for herself. “In this business, as you’re working your way up, there’s a lot of moving around, but I was looking for a place where I might be able to spend more time and really put down roots,” Sargent says. “Ten years ago, I wouldn’t have thought that this was the place where people move to—maybe you retire or vacation here—but I think that has evolved.” Like the city, Sargent did some growing to get here. She graduated with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia, earned a law degree from Cornell Law School, and practiced law in New York City before returning to journalism—a career that took her everywhere from Mobile, Alabama, to Houston, Texas. “It was always my plan to practice law for several years and then go back to journalism,” says Sargent, who won an Emmy in Houston before moving to CBS4, where she now anchors the evening and late newscasts, at 5 and 11 PM. Since she arrived, Sargent, 33, has been working to achieve personal success that extends beyond the newsroom. “It is a tough business sometimes,” she says. “When I moved to Houston, I was very much focused on the work. I didn’t want to have any regrets, so I made sure I gave it my all, and in some ways the social life did suffer. One of the big commitments I have given myself [in Miami] is finding that work-life balance and making that When she’s not a priority.” reporting the news, Sargent is lured in by Sargent’s first step toward cultivating that equilibrium the arts and enterwas to find a place to live.

Paulo was just 8 years old. After school and on the weekends, he would go with his father to the factory to learn the family business. When he was old enough, But for CEO Paulo Bacchi, finding the right home had to come first. The journey began in the countryside of São Paolo, where Paulo’s father, he started working—doing logistics at the factory by day while taking college courses at night. By 2002, they had 14 stores in Albino Bacchi, left his family—a schoolteacher Brazil, and like his father, Paulo had dreams of mother and bank manager father—for the bright broadening his horizons. lights of big-city life at age 13. With a sharp business mind and a robust sense of determination, he launched his first enterprise, selling fresh cheese to ON HIS OWN —PAULO BACCHI local markets. After five successful years, Bacchi’s “I decided it was time to expand, and main customer went broke and settled his debt by I wanted to move to a country safer than Brazil,” giving him carpentry machinery. says Paulo. “The desire to expand into a more stable market and the need “He took the machinery, partnered with a very experienced carpenter, and to find a better place to raise my children made Miami my first option.

“We can only grow with stability. That’s the Brazilian way.” —PAULO BACCHI

THE NEXT GENERATION Also growing over the course of the past dozen years were Paulo’s twin sons—Pietro and Bruno—who turn 18 this year and are preparing to take the reins of the family business after completing their education. “Bruno and Pietro are identical boys, but they’re completely different in a professional way,” says Paulo. “Pietro is my salesman. Bruno is more focused on the process and the financial part. So basically I have a perfect team to run the company in a few years. I have one running marketing and product and the other taking care of logistics, administration, and financials, so all the experience has come from grandfather to father to sons in a nice way.” The knowledge they’ve received from their father and grandfather, who retired from the business in 2013, is priceless. “The most valuable lesson my dad has taught me about the business is that the only thing a person

has is his word,” says Pietro. “Always keep an open mind and good energy when speaking with anyone,” Bruno responds. You can hear both their grandfather and father in their voices, and as they plan for the future, you can expect them, like the generations before, to chase the bright lights. “My goals consist of graduating with a degree in business along with helping Artefacto expand to areas that are currently not in our range,” Bruno says. His brother adds, “I want to expand the business to the West Coast, where I believe there are a great amount of opportunities.” No matter where the brothers settle, the Bacchi charm lives on. “The good part is the boys really love the product, they love style, they love design, they love the people,” says Paulo. “Our clientele has a rich culture and success in whatever they are doing, and it’s a pleasure for all of us to work in this environment. I hope there will be a fourth generation.” 4440 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Ste. 1600, Coral Gables, 305-774-0004; artefacto.com OD

continued from page 111 and leave home, when it came time for expansion, there was no keeping the next generation from exploring new pastures. “Our initial plan was to establish our company in the US with professional local leaders. However, Paulo decided to move to Miami and start the business himself,” says Albino. “He was able to prove his capacity and talent to himself, to me, and to the other directors of our company. Paulo put into action everything he learned in school and in practice while working in Brazil.” They opened the first Stateside store in Merrick Park in 2002, and for two straight years, Paulo worked day and night, because as he says, “all the bad things happen to new businesses when you’re not looking.” He got to know the customers, became part of the community, and introduced the country to Artefacto’s vast inventory of stylish, eco-friendly furniture. As the company expanded with new stores in both Brazil and in Miami, Paulo moved at a responsible pace. “We can only grow with stability,” he says. “That’s how I was taught. We have to grow with our own capital. That’s the Brazilian way.” In addition to its stores in Coral Gables, Aventura, and Doral, there are Artefacto-designed model residences in buildings such as Ocean House South Beach, Marquis Residences, Icon Brickell, Trump Towers, Capri South Beach, Paramount Bay, Bellini Williams Island, and Brickell Heights.

It doesn’t matter how much you spend; it matters how many wishes you grant. Our results have validated that theory. Those funds help more kids than ever. Another thing that’s fueling this organization’s success is my idea of having the entire cost of the ball underwritten. That means 100 percent of funds we take in go toward wishes. I call it the Chairman’s Challenge, and my job was to get a group of 20 leaders in the community to contribute $25,000 each for five years. I wanted to put together an influential circle of people who had a commonality. These men and women are silent warriors, and they’re pillars, holding this ball up. One couple, Todd and Kim Glaser, got involved without my even asking. They were sitting at my bar, and I was telling them about this endeavor. Kim whispered in Todd’s ear, and he looked up at me and said, ‘Yes, we’ll do it.’ All of these families inspire us at Make-A-Wish. We invite them to speak at meetings and events, and they remind us why we’re doing this.

or thousands of models, designers, and industry insiders (and their lucky plus-ones), July means Miami Swim Week—the electric start to the swimwear industry’s busy season and a look at the trends to come. One of the biggest draws is Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (MBFW) Swim, now in its 10th year, held at the Raleigh Hotel. “We were approached by the city to launch an event to add showmanship that was complementary to [SwimShow], the largest [trade fair] in the world dedicated to the swimwear industry,” says Jarrad Clark, VP and global creative director at IMG Fashion, the production house behind Fashion Week. Today, a seat at a MBFW Swim runway show is hard to come by. This year, IMG has expanded to new on-site poolside and penthouse shows, where guests can catch designers like Paola Robba of Poko Pano. Fashion-favorite Mara Hoffman returns with her signature prints, as will Luli Fama, Miami’s homegrown talent, which delivers high-energy entertainment and strong sex appeal. Other must-sees include L*Space by Monica Wise, back for its seventh run, and Maaji, which had a hit reveal last year with its pirate-themed, lingerie-inspired “Chimeric Wayfarer” show. New additions to the lineup include fashion brand Clover Canyon and Los Angeles–based Belusso and Mikoh, which will debut its mod minimalism on Saturday, July 19. If growth were a trend, the Swimwear Association of Florida’s SwimShow would be leading. This year’s show features an additional 500,000 square feet to incorporate a wider variety of collections like Phat Buddha, the first fitness brand to participate in the show. “We are really excited about the new and fashion-focused collections we are seeing from the men’s, children’s, accessories, resort, and lifestyle areas of the industry,” says Judy Stein, the association’s executive director. So are, it would seem, the show’s anticipated 9,500 attendees. Of course, as Stein notes, the setting certainly helps. “Miami Beach offers a colorful party of its own.” Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim takes place July 17–20 at the

Hollywood Goes to War A NEW EXHIBIT AT THE JEWISH MUSEUM OF FLORIDA-FIU EXPLORES HOLLYWOOD IN THE YEARS SURROUNDING WWII. BY BRETT SOKOL

“I

t’s a story that people don’t really know,” explains Jo Ann Arnowitz, executive director and chief curator at Miami Beach’s Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU. The tale in question is Hollywood’s role in the years just prior to America’s December 1941 entry into World War II. It’s a history far more checkered than most of today’s rosy recollections, and one on colorful display in the museum’s “Cinema Judaica” exhibition. What emerges in this showcase of over two dozen period film posters is a reminder of just how strong isolationist feelings were in the US during that era. “Some people stood up to Nazi Germany, but there were so many other people being lackadaisical and doing nothing,” says Arnowitz. Hollywood’s desire to maintain German movie ticket sales—even if it meant purging scripts, casts, and crews of anything and anyone “offensive” to Nazi officials—all too often outweighed moral concerns. “Out of the eight major studios producing films at that time, only two stood up to

[German Minister of Propaganda Joseph] Goebbels’s demands about not employing Jews,” says Arnowitz. “United Artists closed down their German arm, but still distributed their films there through another company. Only Warner Brothers went the opposite route in creating films that were about what was happening in Germany.” The results, as seen in “Cinema Judaica,” culturally skew both high and low—from The Man I Married, a 1940 melodrama spotlighting anti-Semitism in Germany, to I’ll Never Heil Again, a gloriously surreal 1941 Three Stooges short with Moe as a brutish Hitler and Larry as a befuddled Goebbels. Third Stooge Curly is left to serve as the lone voice of wisdom: Breaking character as the other two begin yammering in faux-German, he turns to the camera and confides, “They’re nuts!” “Cinema Judaica” is on exhibit through August 24 at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, 301 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305-672-5044; jmof.fiu.edu.

The Great Paper Chase THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI’S CRISTINA FAVRETTO IS PRESERVING SOUTH FLORIDA’S ALMOST FORGOTTEN PAST, ONE PAGE AT A TIME. BY BRETT SOKOL

tell people this is a museum where you can touch stuff,” laughs Cristina Favretto, pulling an ornately illustrated 18th-century tome off a bookshelf inside the University of Miami Libraries Special Collections. There, within a climate-controlled vault, is shelf after shelf of rare books, and box after box of carefully filed manuscripts and documents. “Not everybody can collect everything. If people want to look at F. Scott Fitzgerald material, they go to Princeton. If they’re looking for movie material, they go to USC. If they’re looking for material about the history of Miami, they come here.” For Favretto, as head of UM’s Special Collections, that’s meant expanding her scope beyond the city’s usual suspects, delving off-campus to secure the personal archives from several decades’ worth of countercultural figures in both the arts and politics. Just as important—whether those materials were written by local captains of industry or by those railing against them, all of it remains accessible to accredited academics and amateur scholars alike. Some of Favretto’s finds are of obvious historical importance; others fall into the category of bibliophilic curiosities. More than a few are downright freaky, most notably Miami actor Jackie Gleason’s personal library, donated to UM upon his passing, continued on page 130

“A good special collection should be front and center in a library as a laboratory of exploration.” —CRISTINA FAVRETTO a sewing area; another sister had a chemistry lab. I asked for a little library, and I loaned books to my dolls and made library cards for all my siblings.” When her family relocated to their native Italy in the 1970s, Favretto says she practically lived out of Trieste’s famed bookstores, an affinity that continued when she returned to the United States for college in the 1980s. Eventually landing in Boston, she divided her time between performing in that city’s avant-garde music scene and working in libraries. Positions running archives at Duke University, San Diego State University, and UCLA followed; Favretto has been at UM since 2008. Her arrival at the relatively deep-pocketed UM has been particularly heartening for those watching Miami-Dade’s public library system—and the archives it houses—lurch from one fiscal crisis to the next, barely able to keep the lights on. “You don’t have to convince people of the importance of the ballet or the opera,” Favretto sighs. “But you do have to convince them of the importance of the written word. And it’s getting harder every day. It seems like there’s always money for new sports stadiums, but not for libraries.” On that note, Favretto hopes she can help pick up some of the intellectual slack: “We really want to open up to the community, just like the Pérez Art Museum of Miami and History Miami,” she says. “A good special collection should be front and center in a library as a laboratory of exploration. If you go to the art museum, no one’s going to let you look through a sheaf of Degas drawings. But you can come here and look through our oldest, most fragile books. We’re just going to ask you to have clean hands.” University of Miami

continued from page 128 which was filled with hundreds of personally annotated books on the occult and UFOs. Yet Favretto treats it all with equal reverence. In fact, it’s hard to tell which she’s more enthused over—the personal papers of local writer and cultural provocateur Erick Lyle, better known by his Miami punk rock sobriquet of “Iggy Scam,” or those of former Florida US Senator Mel Martinez. “He resigned from office three days after I met with him, and he agreed to donate his papers to us. People kept asking me, ‘What did you say to him?’” Favretto quips. Of course, amassing a sprawling print archive does raise nagging questions of relevance. Is a paper-and-ink repository necessary in light of the seemingly all-encompassing Internet? Those are fighting words to Favretto. “I’m not a Luddite, but when you look at older websites, half of their links are already dead,” Favretto counters. “Not everything is—or will be—digitized.” Moreover, she argues, even for historical material that has been transferred into the digital realm, there’s often no comparison with encountering the original document. Case in point: an 1821 slave register from a Tobago plantation that Favretto currently has on display, and which never fails to elicit a stunned response from visiting students. Digitized narratives from that era may convey the everyday horror of the slave trade, but picking up and holding the actual handwritten ledger used to track the purchase of human beings—and record their burial once they became too ill or physically exhausted to continue laboring—is a uniquely visceral experience. It’s hardly a stretch to say Favretto was destined for her present job. As a young girl in upstate New York, she recalls how each of her family’s five children “got a portion of the basement kitted out for them. One of my sisters had

Michael Jon Radziewicz at his eponymous gallery in downtown.

O

n the long list of places where people decide they want to become art dealers, shoe stores in Tampa sit near the bottom. But when Michael Jon Radziewicz walked into one in January 2011 and bought out its stock of Vans, that’s exactly what happened. “As I was giving [the cashier] my credit card, it was like, ‘Wait, this is it. This is the moment when I’m figuring it out.’ I had them ship all the shoes to Chicago; I sold them [in my studio].” At the time, Radziewicz was finishing an MFA in Studio Arts at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the project was a wink to commodity culture—buying and selling as performance. But while the footwear flip began as art, the sale part of it felt right. And like that, the artist became the dealer. But where to put the gallery? New York and Los Angeles were the obvious choices, but the idea to come to Miami came from Radziewicz’s awareness of this city’s potential and —MICHAEL JON his own grassroots individualism. “You always want to root RADZIEWICZ for the underdog; you always want to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing.” So he and his wife, Jennifer Ponce, a math and science tutor, packed up their car, headed south, and opened up a little gallery on 41st Street in the Design District. A little gallery—at 180 square feet, the floor plan was barely bigger than the pizza boxes at Harry’s across continued on page 134

Tight relationships with up-and-coming artists around the country allowed him to flood his gallery with top talent. Beyond the art, the gallery had two great things going for it: a location directly across from the de la Cruz Collection and a porch that swelled with artists, collectors, and friends during every opening. With a cooler full of Budweiser, the Michael Jon Gallery had the halcyon warmth of a high school party, just with better art. A year in, the gallery moved 30 blocks south to the Downtown Art House on 11th Street and NE First Avenue, in a former fishing supply warehouse. The move was typical of a quickly

“THE SUMMER COLLECTION IS AN INVITATION TO TRAVEL, in search of sun and relaxation—perfect for Miami,” says Judith Milgrom, the founder and designer of Parisian fashion label Maje (pronounced Mah-j), which recently opened its second South Florida store, at Bal Harbour Shops. (The first one debuted in Palm Beach.) For the new collection, Milgrom was inspired by an effortless, carefree attitude, and the pieces are peppered with the designer’s signature elements of subtle, offbeat details and “femininity displayed in a seductive way.” Tailored shorts are mixed with long blazers, for instance, while leather jackets are paired with mesh-paneled tees. “The Maje girl is a true free spirit,” Milgrom notes. “She’s never tied down to one style or place and is just as chic and comfortable in jeans shorts and fringed leather boots as she is in a tiny, ultrafeminine dress and heels.” Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-868-2308; maje.com OD

“There is an international point of view in Miami,” says Cristiana Vigano, director of communications at Vhernier, the Italian fine-jewelry purveyor that celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. “The women are strong, bold, elegant, and refined, and the landscape is full of life and color. These qualities make Miami a great place for [Vhernier] to be.” The fine jeweler, which first opened in South Florida a decade ago, is releasing two distinct lines, Freccia and Bisquit, to celebrate the anniversary. Freccia blends bulbous, fluid shapes of rose gold with Vhernier’s trademark translucent stones in rich colors like jade, carnelian, and turquoise. Bisquit recalls Vhernier’s playful relationship with geometry, featuring pavé-diamond dome rings and milky, iridescent mother-ofpearl link necklaces. While Vhernier touts a fan base that includes Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, and Rosario Dawson, catering to clients from its Beverly Hills boutique and Saks Fifth Avenue store-instore concepts, it’s the company’s decade-old Coral Gables showroom that remains the jewelry house’s US home base. 135 San Lorenzo Ave., Coral Gables, 305-445-9356; vhernier.it

JUST AS THE ART INSIDE THE PÉREZ ART MUSEUM MIAMI IS UNIQUE AND UNEXPECTED, ITS GIFT SHOP’S WARES ARE ONE-OF-A-KIND GEMS.

t’s not unusual to visit the Pérez Art Museum Miami and wish you could take the works of art from Ai Weiwei or Monika Sosnowska home. While that’s not an option—unless you’ve made your peace with ending up on several international “Most Wanted” lists—you can leave with armfuls of thoughtfully curated, always clever, and often tonguein-cheek tokens from PAMM Shop, the thoroughly modern museum store located just to the right of the museum’s entrance. At 1,800 square feet, the space is open and airy, filled with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a panoramic view of the museum’s dramatic hanging gardens and the Port of Miami beyond. However, your gaze will also be drawn inward—to sleek white tables topped with a treasure trove of eye candy that runs the gamut from esoteric art theory books to quirky, poseable Cubebots from David Weeks and 3-D mirrors by Adam Frank that lend the lucid illucontinued on page 156

“We carry products that bend the perception of reality, that make you think just as much as the art on the walls.”—MICHAEL BALBONE Sokolow-Benmeleh’s Espiritútara line with its exotic evil eyes and tassels, and Aria Nero pieces that transform fashion jewelry of the past into contemporary wearable art. There’s also a bevy of greeting cards sure to wow anyone on the receiving end. “A majority of our cards are printed on sustainable paper with sustainable inks,” says Balbone. “We work with one company in particular, Good Paper, which produces cards made by hand by underserved communities in the Philippines and Rwanda.” Most of the items “fit the mission,” as Balbone says, being both eco-friendly and socially conscious. Neon baskets, chairs, and trophy heads—all favorites of local interior designers looking to outfit their clients’ condos with one-of-a-kind pieces—are sculpted out of sustainable iron wire by LA-based studio Bend. Hand-dyed Marquet binh minh shawls in a vibrant spectrum of jewel tones are all fair trade. Plastic is hard to come by, even at the toy table, where bent-wood rainbows share space with kaleidoscopic puzzles by German toy company Grimm’s. For the record, the playthings would look just as welcome on a coffee table as in a playroom; you can even build your own miniature human skull out of wafer-thin strips of balsa wood from a company called Cardboard Safari. For now, no online hub for the store exists, so you’ll have to venture to Museum Park to take home your own unique piece of PAMM. Choose carefully, though—your souvenir will become just as much of a conversation starter as it is a keepsake. “These aren’t pieces you’ll find anywhere else,” Balbone says. “And while they may not go together in the overall ‘story’ [of the exhibits], they triumph as art and a way of life very well.” 1103 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, 786-345-5694; pamm.org OD

continued from page 154 sion of clouds. Michael Balbone, director of retail operations, first scoured museum shops in Paris, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and New York to develop a feel for the types of mementos typically offered in these stores. Then he turned the expected on its head: At PAMM he’s fine-tuned the art of curating keepsakes that defy literal interpretation. “The shop is an extension of our museum experience,” he says. “So we carry products that bend the perception of reality, that value process over form, that have wit and make you think just as much as the art on the walls.” Eschewing the conventions of Euro-centric design stores, Balbone groups items by broad theme rather than by use. Toward the front of the shop, a table filled with flamingo-topped chopsticks and tomes on Miami graffiti art underscores the kitschy-cool nature of Florida souvenirs. The nearby America table offers a witty interpretation of all things USA—$100 bills made of seed paper that grow into plants, palm-size Egyptian pyramid pencil sharpeners lifted straight from the Eye of Providence imagery on the American dollar, tobaccoscented soy candles, and an American flag spatula. While certain items wink at the irreverence of art commercialism—“Would Leonardo really appreciate his Mona Lisa masterpiece on this set of CMYK coasters?” Balbone asks—others pay homage to the city’s thriving community of designers. Much of the jewelry is designed by local artists, including Tara

But unlike most, the Peru-born founder and designer of Lolita’s Beachwear, a South Florida-based e-commerce site and bikini line, succeeds despite having cerebral palsy. Besides creating her swimwear, Uranga also raises awareness of the disease and funds to combat it.

W

hen you’re sitting bayside at a Brickell Key resort, chasing the tart perfection of a snapper ceviche with a cool beer, the word “disorder” could not be further from the tip of your leche de tigre-coated tongue. But that’s precisely the word Executive Chef Diego Oka uses to describe the Mandarin Oriental, Miami’s newest restaurant, La Mar by Gaston Acurio. “It’s a beautiful disorder,” says Oka, a disciple of Acurio, perhaps Peru’s most globally celebrated chef. “There is beauty in not being perfect.” The food at La Mar is indeed beautiful, but not in a “too pretty to eat” kind of way. There is, for example, the tiradito of wagyu beef—thin slices of deep-red meat topped with bright greens, rocoto oroshi, and golden garlic chips in a rich orange ponzu sauce that gives you a hint of the dish’s subtle earthiness even before you taste it. The beef tiradito is memorable, not least for the large grains of pink salt that ring the plate, but it’s actually a bit of an outlier for La Mar. As its name implies, this restaurant continued on page 166

BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE Chefs behind the anticucho bar preparing skewers of grilled meat; a colorful cocktail.

continued from page 165 is an ode to the sea: the pattern of turquoise scales under the bar, the fishnet lamps, and Biscayne Bay, visible from nearly every seat in the house. On the way to your table, you pass an open kitchen where black-clad cooks grill chicken, octopus, asparagus, whole jumbo prawns, and veal hearts on an open fire. The veal hearts—dubbed “Corazon” on La Mar’s anticucho (grilled skewered meat) menu— are Oka’s first attempt to push Miami diners into riskier culinary territory. The veal hearts may be a hit, but ceviche is the true corazón of the La Mar menu, the “starting point” of the whole restaurant, Oka says. Drenched in a blend of lemon juice, fish stock, aji, garlic, celery, red onion, and salt—the aforementioned leche de tigre—La Mar’s ceviches all feature large, luscious chunks of fresh seafood topped with garnishes like peanuts and cancha, a homemade Andean version of American corn nuts. Ceviche is the perfect beginning to your meal. From there, you can sample the tiraditos— “Japanese sashimi Peruvian style”—and the Peruvian nigiri, “inspired by more than 100 years of Japanese immigrants.” (Oka, a proud Peruvian, is himself of Japanese descent.) Then move on to the causas, which are a bite’s worth of cold potato puree topped with anything from tuna tartare to a quail egg. “In Peru, we don’t have traditional salad, so causas are our salad,” Oka explains. Among La Mar’s entrées, the early favorite is the whole fish Nikei, served in fried, meaty chunks that are nestled in the curving body of the fish itself, drizzled in a spicy ginger sauce and plated with bok choy and broccoli rice. “La Mar is a place to celebrate,” Oka says. “We usually eat ceviche in Peru with a beer in front of the sea. So La Mar, here in Miami, is that, no?” It is that, yes. 500 Brickell Key Dr., Miami, 305-913-8358; mandarin oriental.com/miami OD

Arroz con mariscos (seafood stew with rice).

FOOD FORM La Mar’s design is a take on classic Peruvian cebicherias, or seafood restaurants, elevated by interior designers Vivianne Nathan and Veronica Pereira of Nathan/Pereira Arquitectura to fit the luxury resort setting of the Mandarin Oriental, Miami. Complementing a seafood-centric menu and bayside seating, the décor is elegantly oceanic, featuring shades of watery greens and sandy grays, streaked wood tables, and a bejeweled, Ingo Maurer– designed lamp inspired by a fisherman’s net. The interior comprises four discrete spaces—three bars (ceviche, anticucho, and cocktail) and the main dining area—and there’s additional seating on two waterfront patios.

FROM THE TOP:

From La Mar’s wraparound terrace, evening diners have a view of the bay, awash in light from the Brickell skyline, as boats glide past. Much of the restaurant’s seafood comes from local waters, including the flounder and yellowtail snapper, so it’s the perfect place to savor Executive Chef Diego Oka’s exquisite take on Peruvian cuisine.

Beach Eats RAVENOUS AFTER A DAY ON THE SAND? HERE ARE SOME OF MIAMI BEACH’S BEST APRÈSBEACH MEALS. BY GALENA MOSOVICH

A

fter braving the surf or basking in the powerful Miami sun, it’s just a matter of time before hunger strikes (vitamin D is known to increase the appetite). When it does, there are a handful of fantastic spots on the beach that elevate casual cuisine to an art, and they don’t mind if you show up with a little sand in your sandals. Below, we’ve picked the best dish from each.

Yellowfin tuna burrito and signature limespiced popcorn from My Ceviche.

Just four blocks from the Atlantic Ocean in South Beach, My Ceviche operates out of a tiny doorway and boasts an impressive menu with big flavors for fast and healthy meals. As the name implies, ceviche reigns supreme here, with fresh wild-caught fish from local fishermen. We particularly love the “build your own” ceviche bowl made with coconut jasmine rice, coconut-style sauce (Florida citrus juices with coconut water, avocado, jalapeños, cilantro, red onions, and radishes), and a protein-packed combo of fish, shrimp, and octopus. 235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305-397-8710; myceviche.com

Although it’s hotly debated, this is our best bet for curbing beach-day cravings.

Miami’s most active locals can often be found in the hip Sunset Harbour neighborhood, paddleboarding in Biscayne Bay, sweating their way through boot camp, or raising their heart rate with spinning or yoga. All of the action is just steps away from Ice Box Cafe’s fantastic kale Caesar, an indulgent post-workout dish with organic kale, cherry tomatoes, Grana Padano (semi-aged hard Italian cheese), and housemade Caesar dressing.

can’t remember the last time I got sick,” says Olga Kuzenkov, founder and “juiceologist” at Boca Raton– based On Juice. “Our bodies require vitamins and nutrients to function at their optimal level. Just like your car, if you want it to last a long time, you put the best fuel in it. Unfortunately, most people don’t.” In a town so focused on outer beauty, it’s ironic that one of the biggest pushes in Miami now is for internal health. All the high-protein food we eat is significantly more acidforming, with negative consequences for our health. Juices provide a way to eliminate the buildup of toxins that a diet heavy in meat can promote. This summer, the company has rolled out its Belly Breakthrough Cleanse—four juices for one day (a five-day supply costs $250)—designed to flush toxins, clean the kidneys, and repair digestion using mostly organic lemon, kale, pineapple, spinach, carrots, and various other roots, which are processed in a cold-press juicer. “Cold-pressed juice offers a higher level of digestive enzymes,” says Kuzenkov. “The way most other juices are made warms up the cells of the fibers, and you actually lose a lot of benefits and digestive enzymes. Cold press preserves those ingredients.” Kuzenkov, who moved here from Ukraine 18 years ago, says Florida is an inspiration for her juiced-up life. “Here, we are almost naked 80 percent of the year, so people pay a lot of attention to the way they look,” she says. Hence, the demand for On Juice is greater than ever. This summer, the company is opening its first storefront location in Aventura Mall, conveniently right next to Lululemon. Yes, it’s a total departure from typical “mall food,” but in South Florida, it’s a perfect fit. onjuice.com On Juice has 11 flavors, including Unbeetable, Piña-Kale-Lotta, Lemon-Aid, and Mint Condition (PICTURED).

hef Dewey LoSasso jokes that the menu at AQ by Acqualina is “modern American, which pretty much means I can do whatever I want, depending on how much coffee I drink.” With that kind of latitude (and attitude), he’s created the clever combo of grouper with pancake. LoSasso is no stranger to mixing frivolity and fine dining— he concocted the lobster PB&J at The Forge, a restaurant he helmed for nearly five years before making the jump to AQ this past spring. His new pan-seared grouper variation keeps you on your toes with apple and celery root in the pancake, a jammy pomegranate reduction, a smoky charred serranoand-carrot reduction, and a piquant topping of pea and corn shoots from nearby Paradise Farms. continued on page 174

Big flakes of seared fish hit the surprisingly smoky carrot reduction.

FROM THE TOP:

Sauvignon Blanc. “A Chardonnay’s oakiness wouldn’t work with serrano chili and carrot,” says the chef. “Spicier food works better with a Sauvignon Blanc or Champagne. Sauvignon Blanc has a crispness to it that helps the spice of the sauce and the astringency of the pomegranate.” We’re not arguing at all. 17875 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, 305-918-6816; acqualinaresort.com OD

Chef Dewey LoSasso carefully drizzles the sauces onto the empty space of the plate; assembling a dish: corn and pea shoots, pomegranate and carrot-serrano reductions, pancakes, and grouper filet.

continued from page 172 INSPIRATION: “For me, it started with the snow pea shoots and the corn shoots,” which have clean flavors fit to accompany any fish, LoSasso says. “You have a pop from the pea shoots, then you go into the creaminess of the pancake.” To bring the whole ensemble together, he added celery root and apple to the pancakes. “I like celery root and apple against the chili [of the carrot-serrano reduction].” BUILDING THE SUPPORTING CAST: LoSasso chars serrano chilies on the grill, blends them into the carrot juice, and reduces the mixture without whipping in oil or butter. He then reduces the pomegranate juice down with white wine and lemon, adding sea salt and pepper at the end. Why pomegranate? “It’s astringent,” he says. “There’s a sourness to it that’s not overbearing. I think it opens itself to a savory direction.” The pancakes are made with eggs, potato starch, and flour blended with raw grated celery root and peeled apple. THE STAR: With good fish, less is inherently more. LoSasso’s simple pan-searing creates caramelization and a crust—a lovely texture, but also sweet and earthy flavors that play with the supporting cast. LoSasso cuts his eight-ounce grouper filets from a whole 16- to 20-pound local fish. He sprinkles each filet with salt and pepper, and black smoked sea salt. “The trick is to put a little oil on the fish as well,” he says, before gently shimmying the filets in a very hot pan over high heat until they’re brown. Next, LoSasso flips the filets, sprinkles them with salt, sears for another minute, then tosses everything into a 500-degree oven for two to five minutes, depending on the thickness of the grouper. PLATING: With the sizzling fish resting on the pancake, LoSasso hits the corn and pea shoots with a little olive oil and sea salt, tosses them, and delicately places them on top of the fish. “It’s a clean bite,” he says. “It works together with the radish-y flavors in the celery root.” As a final touch, he carefully drizzles the two sauces—one orange, one red—on the negative space of the plate, creating visual balance. THE RESULTS: Although the fish prep is simple, there’s a lot happening on the plate. Big flakes of seared fish hit the surprisingly smoky carrot reduction; the pomegranate sauce is dense, impactful; the pancakes have a nice, delicate chewiness, and their earthiness picks up on the sear of the fish. On top of it all is the intermingling of the greens. PAIRING: LoSasso likes to pair the dish with

South American Vibe WHERE MIAMI’S SOUTH AMERICAN RESIDENTS DINE FOR A REAL TASTE OF HOME. BY GALENA MOSOVICH

I

t’s no coincidence that South American restaurants are now widespread in Miami. Nearly half of all South America–born immigrants live in one of two US metropolitan cities: New York or Miami. Hundreds of thousands of transplants—mostly from Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Peru—account for more than 20 percent of the overall immigrant population in the Latin-centric melting pot that is Miami. Here, we look to find out where they eat when they crave a taste of home.

EVELINY BASTOS-KLEIN, PRESIDENT, EVK PUBLIC RELATIONS Home country: Brazil Favorite Brazilian restaurant in Miami: Boteco At Boteco, a small and always-packed restaurant and bar, Bastos-Klein travels back in time to her childhood on the breathtaking sands of São Paulo. “As a country of immigrants, Brazil has a varied cuisine that incorporates elements of many cultures and the abundant local flavors, which I love the most,” says Bastos-Klein, who visits Boteco (Portuguese for “hole in the wall”) on Friday nights for savory dishes, live music, dancing, and caipirinha de frutas (refreshing cocktails made with Leblon cachaca and mixed fruit). The camarao alho e oleo (sautéed shrimp with olive oil, garlic, and fresh parsley) is identical to what’s served at her beloved Brazilian beach shacks, and she says she can’t resist the picanha (top sirloin cap steak) sprinkled with farofa (a crispy condiment made from toasted cassava flour).

continued from page 176 Doral. Colombian food, he explains, can be very diverse, as the country’s cuisine is divided by geographical regions. In Baranquilla, his home on the northern coast, the food is dubbed “costena,” and classic street food reigns, including arepas de huevo (fried corn cakes with soft-cooked eggs), caribanolas (yucca empanadas stuffed with cheese), quibes—sometimes called kibbe—(torpedo-shaped fried bulgur stuffed with minced meat), and chicharrones (deep-fried, bone-in pork belly). For a memorable main dish, Garcia reaches for mojarra (fish such as tilapia) with coconut rice and patacones (tostones, or fried plantain slices). “These restaurants are very relaxed and laid-back,” says Garcia. “You don’t need to dress up or make reservations; it feels almost like visiting family.” Narcobollo, 2557 NW 79th Ave., Doral, 305-597-7722; narcobollo restaurant.com.

how much she loved Venezuelan food until she moved to Miami nearly a decade ago. “Every dish on a Venezuelan menu is completely different from the next, but all have special flavors that remind me of home,” says Ramirez. When nostalgia arises, she leans on her two favorites in Miami: La Latina in Midtown and Doggi’s Venezuelan Cuisine south of Brickell. You can find her in the mornings at La Latina, an arepera, where she’s prompted by memories of her family’s big Sunday brunches, brimming with round flatbreads typically filled with cheese, ham, chicken, or beef. At Doggi’s, Ramirez orders the sweet and savory arepa de pabellon (shredded beef, fried plantains, white rice, and organic queso), combining her cherished arepas with the national dish, pabellon.

rom cafecito to cocktails, the Caribbean’s influence on Miami is undeniable. But while most bars around town are still pouring pitchers of mojitos, The Regent Cocktail Club at the Gale, a posh and proper bar where everything old is new again, invites guests to step outside of the old sandbox and sip something different this summer. In lieu of the tried-and-true mojito comes the Queen’s Park Swizzle, a more sophisticated version of the sweet summertime staple hailing from the West Indies (think Trinidad). Like the 3 oz.

Fort and Knife RESTAURATEUR TIM PETRILLO HELPED KICK-START FORT LAUDERDALE’S DINING RENAISSANCE—AND HE’S NOT DONE YET. BY ANA HERETOIU

T

wo decades ago, Fort Lauderdale’s Riverfront was barely in its developing stages, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts had just been built, and only a handful of bars existed where the sensational Las Olas now buzzes with life. Then, restaurateur/nightlife maestro Tim Petrillo and his company, The Restaurant People, entered the scene, first with Himmarshee Bar & Grille in 1997, followed by the homey Tarpon Bend Food & Tackle and Vibe Las Olas. But it wasn’t until 2008, when YOLO (which stands for “You Only Live Once”) opened its swanky doors, that the city got a full taste of Petrillo’s talents. “You look at the market and find what’s missing, then you fill that opportunity,” explains Petrillo of YOLO, which will finish its massive makeover, complete with new uniforms, menus, drink lists, and an all-new design, by the end of July. “We’re going to be spending a huge amount of money to renovate that space— everything will be redone,” says Petrillo. “It’s one of those spaces where we have such a local and loyal following that I want to make sure we’re always keeping them engaged.” Pulling from what bigger cities like Las Vegas and New York were offering, continued on page 184

ort Lauderdale may not be as buzzed about as Miami Beach, but the city—often referred to as the Venice of America—has, over the past few years, blossomed into an on-trend dining destination with some extremely talented chefs. For incredibly fresh seafood and gorgeous ocean views, there’s 3030 Ocean, located at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa (3030 Holiday Dr., 954-765-3030; 3030ocean.com), where South Florida chef Paula DaSilva cooks up stunning dishes like pan-seared branzino, roasted Atlantic cod, and pan-roasted mahi. If you’re not sure what to order, go for the chef’s selection. Five minutes up the beach, newly opened Beauty & The Feast (601 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., 954-567-8020; atlantichotelfl.com) stands out with an eclectic and globally inspired menu in a chic and stylish setting. Also nearby is renowned chef Steve Martorano’s eponymous eatery, Cafe Martorano (3343 E. Oakland Park Blvd., 954-561-2554; cafe martorano.com). His welcoming Italian-American panache and his food both bring smiles. Inland, there’s the family-owned Valentino Cucina Italiana (620 S. Federal Hwy., 954523-5767; valentinocucinaitaliana.com), where owner and chef Giovanni Rocchio keeps it traditional with a concise and simple menu of satisfying classics such as butternut tortelli, burrata, and veal chops. For Mediterranean with a touch of Southeast Asia, visit Hardy Park Bistro (21 SW Seventh St., 954-652-1475). It’s owned by a passionate Australia-born chef named Philip Darmon, who prides himself on making everything at his restaurant from scratch and consistently delivering on his promise of fresh, tasty food.

continued from page 182 YOLO blurred the lines between restaurant and lounge, integrating the best of both worlds and featuring a chic yet laid-back environment that’s as suitable to nightlife aficionados as it is to epicurean connoisseurs. The restaurant provides a novel dining experience and solidly abides by its vibrant motto. When it came to S3, short for Sun, Surf, and Sand (you can see all three from the veranda), which opened in 2013, Petrillo and his team created a haven for sushi, steak, and seafood. Depending on what you’re in the mood for, the dining experience can range from casual (sit at the bar in a tank top, beer in hand) to fancy (valet your car and sip top shelf in an exclusive booth). Only at S3, the come-as-you-are mantra is given an elevated setting—the 7,000-square-foot space has two highend lounges, mesmerizing S-shaped fire pits, 225 seats overlooking the water, and three Turkish granite bars. This year, Vibe will also undergo an update, and Petrillo has two new ventures in the works. The first, Fork & Balls, he describes as a “casual, fun, and funky meatball concept” with a variety of meatballs, including spicy duck, lamb, and seafood. The second, which will be a sky bar on the 27th floor of the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, is due to open sometime in October. “The space is magnificent,” Petrillo raves. “I knew we had to do something up there. It has completely unobstructed views of the ocean. “It’s a very demanding business,” he adds, “but it’s a very rewarding business, too.” YOLO, 333 E. Las Olas Blvd., 954-523-1000; yolorestaurant.com.

“I love going to Europe, but I always come back to Miami.” —LOURDES “LULI” HANIMIAN

You’re hands-on in the kitchen. Is it the same with your business? It would be impossible for me to not be involved. When we do a fashion show, I will even choose my models. I’m just proud of the girls who walk my shows, and I’m really good to them. I believe you need to respect them and treat everybody well. Within the industry… sometimes that’s not how it is, so I spoil them. It’s genuine. And when they walk my shows, there’s so much good energy. What does it take to be successful in such a competitive marketplace? Take risks and stay different. I think competition is great. Even when they copy me, it’s great because [it forces you] to do something new. You’re known for really sexy bikinis. What does sexy mean to you? Confidence. A woman has to feel comfortable in what she’s wearing. Luli Fama branched out into eyewear this year. Why? We’re asked all the time to expand to a different customer, and we don’t want to. We want to cater to what our girl wants and stay in our niche. When you want to sell to everybody, that’s when you’re done. What can we expect from you for 2015? It’s a surprise, but I can tell you it’s focused on Miami. One print is all about palm trees and flamingos. It’s connecting with nature again. I think that’s something important right now. OD

What are some dishes you like to order at Italian restaurants? Burrata is one of my favorites. I usually like a little side of pasta. They have one here that is by far the best, the pappardelle tartufo with porcini—out of this world, insanely good. And I love fish. I always know they have a fish special. [Today] it’s a Mediterranean branzino. That goes well with white wine. I like wines a lot; my husband is Argentinean, so we drink a lot of Malbecs, a lot of reds, but I’m a big fan of buttery Chardonnay. Strada’s food is very authentic. When you go to Italy, everything is so simple and yet so good, not processed and not too many sauces and seasonings. I love that. Does food play a big role in your family, given your Cuban background? Absolutely. I cook and my husband cooks, too. We have a good mix in the kitchen. I make a really good paella. I put in a little bit of everything. It’s funny, we just came back from Exuma [Bahamas], and we were on a four-cabin yacht and I did the food shopping for the chef. The last night, I said, “Whatever you have left over, you put in the paella.” So we had chicken and chorizo and, of course, fish, lobster, shrimp, and scallops—everything. It was really good. Do you travel often? I pretty much live on a plane. I travel all over for selling, and we do the Paris show. For store events, it’s Vegas, California, and I just came back from Puerto Rico. But when I’m designing, we go to Como and Barcelona. I love going to Europe, but I always come back to Miami.

BEAUTY & THE BEACH

Classic American beauty Erin Heatherton sizzles in summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest trends on the sands of South Beach.

By Jared Shapiro | Photography by Randall Slavin

P

lenty of young girls arrive in South Beach with the intention of becoming a model, but very few actually achieve that goal—let alone supermodel status— especially just minutes after touching down. But for model Erin Heatherton, that’s exactly what happened. As a junior in high school on a college visit to the University of Miami, the Illinoisborn 5-foot-11 stunner stepped out of a minivan and onto South Beach, and before she could even burn her feet, a model scout was chasing after her, business card in hand. Since then, the 25-year-old has walked the runway for everyone from Diane von Furstenberg to Victoria’s Secret, graced the pages of Vogue Paris, and been romantically linked to Leonardo DiCaprio. On a gorgeous Miami Beach day, Ocean Drive brought Heatherton back to where it all began.

OCEAN DRIVE: You were discovered within seconds of stepping foot in Miami Beach. Had you always wanted to model? ERIN HEATHERTON: [Coming to Miami] was my first time on a plane. I came with my friend and her mom; it was a beautiful day when we arrived, so we decided to walk around South Beach and then in the afternoon go to the University of Miami campus. That’s when I was scouted. Some guy jumped out of a cab and asked me what agency I worked for because he was scouting for Abercrombie & Fitch. I was horrified—I was like, “I don’t model,” and I was embarrassed that he didn’t ask my friend to be a model. But my mom followed up with him, and after my junior year of high school, we packed and went to New York. My mom left after two days because I signed with an agency. You moved to New York City at 17 years old—what was that like? I really loved it. I felt so charged by the energy, and I would just walk around alone. New York is a place where everybody is just alone together in the street, doing their thing. It was a lot of selfgrowth during those years; that kind of education is priceless. The world sees you as beautiful, but how do you see yourself? I’m not perfect. I never identified with the way I look; I was just born this way. I don’t feel rejection

“I’M A BEAUTIFUL PERSON, AND THAT’S NOT BECAUSE OF MY MODELING CAREER.”

if I’m not the right person for a job, because that’s not where I find my self-worth. I’m a beautiful person, and that’s not because of my modeling career. There are good shots, and there are bad shots, but it’s just like playing a character. If you think of the top five people that you care about the most in your life, you probably don’t care if they look good in every angle or photo. You’ve said you didn’t fit in very well when you were younger because of your height. That’s the standard tale of most models. I was always the tallest, so that contributed to me being a tomboy and playing sports. A lot of my friends were boys, but I didn’t have “boyfriends” in high school, really. I was 5-foot-5 in fifth grade; I grew six inches in two years. When I was 15, I stopped growing at 5-foot-11. You’re Jewish—did you get Bat Mitzvahed? I did; it was just a wonderful day in my life…. and humiliating. I sang! They’re like mini weddings for awkward preadolescent weirdos changing voices. Are Jewish mothers always trying to set you up with their sons? Yes. The moms, they’re doing what they do. It doesn’t matter what country they live in, what city—grandmothers, too. But I’m probably going to do that too one day. How do you handle working with women who are considered icons in the modeling world? In the beginning, I was surrounded by the most beautiful people in the world, and I spoke to these icons for five minutes and I didn’t think they were beautiful anymore. When you’re surrounded by the best of the best, it’s a really quick way to understand what does matter. Ever since I was a kid, I never really cared what people thought. I was kind of a loner. Being that type of person, what is it like dating in the spotlight and reading gossip about yourself? It’s not a comfortable feeling. With modeling it’s fantasy, so it doesn’t touch you, but when it’s your personal life, then it can burn. But that’s part of the job. It helped me to find more inner strength. What do you love about Miami? Miami is amazing. It’s such a comfortable place. There are so many different neighborhoods and so many different experiences you can have. The beaches are beautiful. The people are really alive, and the spirit is quite eclectic. It’s just a bold place, a colorful place. It’s so laid-back and carefree. OD

Water World

The world’s finest watchmakers plumb the depths of Miami’s devotion to deep-water exploration with a series of functional yet fashionable dive watches. BY ROBERTA NAAS PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEFF CRAWFORD

O

ne of the fastest-growing sports around the globe is scuba diving. As people look for adventure and enlightening experiences, the concept of mingling with marine life and experiencing a world that is both beautiful and foreign becomes ever more appealing. Recognizing this desire to explore new frontiers, luxury watchmakers have begun offering timepieces suitable to the depths. A dive watch should be water-resistant to at least a diver’s International Organization for Standardization (ISO) rating of 200 meters, with 300 meters and greater being preferred. Additionally, it should be easily readable and include features such as a unidirectional bezel,

antireflective crystals, Super-LumiNova hands and markers, and interchangeable or expandable bracelets for use over wetsuits. Often these timepieces are COSC-certified (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) chronometers, tested over a specified length of time for ruggedness and durability under a variety of conditions. Deep-dive watches that go 300 meters and deeper also offer helium escape valves. If you plan to take to the waters, you may want to explore these six watches that take the necessary factors into consideration.

M

iami as a millionaire’s playground? Been there, done that, got the tuxedo. That was the Miami of the 1930s through the 1950s, culminating in the years when Dean, Sammy, Frank, and the rest of the Rat Pack made Miami Beach clubs like Copa City and the iconic Fontainebleau hotel a part of their lives. Fast-forward five decades and the wheel has come full circle. This time around, however, Miami—and Miami Beach, in particular—isn’t just appealing to plain-vanilla, single-digit millionaires; it’s an elite group of billionaires who have rediscovered the city. Instead of just dropping in once or twice a year for a few days to see what’s happening at Art Basel Miami Beach and catch up with friends, they’re looking about, liking what they see, and deciding to stick around for a bit longer. They fly into town in their private jets, using one of four South Florida privatejet-landing airports, then book a suite at whatever happens to be the hotel of the moment, and perhaps drop $20,000 to rent a Lamborghini Aventador to drive around South Beach. While in town, they realize that not only is the weather fabulous, the beach great, and the club scene exciting (none of this has been in doubt), but also that their favorite restaurants are now to be found in Miami, just as they are in New York (Wolfgang’s, Cipriani) or London (Zuma, Nobu). They can find the same stores that they do in Paris or Hong Kong as well as perhaps even some special items they can’t source elsewhere. Here in Miami, the cultural life is increasingly vibrant—a new symphony hall, a new art museum—and yet there’s a laid-back vibe that many other big cities simply can’t offer. So, why not buy a condo—or two or three? And art and furniture? And a car that’s always gassed up (or in the case of the many Teslas down here, charged up) and ready for you. The ranks of the world’s ultrawealthy have decided to admit Miami to the list of their favorite cities, boosting it to number seven— ahead of Paris and Dubai—in this year’s annual survey by Knight Frank, a London real estate consulting firm, up from eighth place in 2013. (London and New York constantly jostle for first and second position; Miami is the only other US city to make this year’s list.) It’s the quality of life that this elite group really loves, ranking Miami fourth on that criterion. For them, it’s no longer enough merely to be birds of passage, as they are in so many other cities worldwide; they want to stick around. The results can be seen most readily in the frenzy of ultraluxury


waterfront condo construction activity. Consider, for instance, the 60-story Porsche Design Tower Miami in Sunny Isles Beach. Already 85 percent sold, the condos, whose price tags start at $6.1 million and range as high as $32.5 million, reportedly count some two dozen billionaires among the buyers. Those moving in will join the likes of Micky Arison, Norman Braman, Jorge Pérez, Edward Lampert, and a handful of other billionaires who have called Miami home for decades. As of 2013, there were approximately 24 billionaires living in South Florida (not including the many mysterious international billionaires who often go unnamed in megaresidential purchases). For the ultrawealthy, the prices in the Porsche Tower could look downright modest compared to Manhattan, where iconic apartments like those at 15 Central Park West might start at the high end of that range. At the Porsche Design Tower, when the billionaires take residence in early 2016, they will get plunge pools and summer kitchens on their 15-foot-deep terraces, private wine lockers, an oceanfront ballroom, a car concierge, and

yes, car elevators allowing them to park their actual Porsches (or Jaguars or Lamborghinis) in sky garages adjacent to their condos.

S

ingle- and double-digit billionaires are lining up to sign on the dotted line to purchase these and other ultraluxury homes. Goldman Sachs Group CEO Lloyd Blankfein snapped up a Miami home for himself and his family at the $1 billion Faena Miami Beach. When he’s at the Rem Koolhaas – designed arts center, he’ll be able to swap Wall Street gossip with Leon Black, the billionaire founder of Apollo Global Management. Maybe Black will choose to hang his recently purchased $120 million pastel version of Edvard Munch’s The Scream on the walls of his new Miami home. “Miami has grown up,” says Richard LeFrak, a New York – based real estate developer with properties around the globe. “It was Grandma’s place to go for a vacation, and then it became a fun mecca for the really young crowd.”

Miami will soon be home to 50 deep-water slips capable of accommodating mega-yachts

ow, in contrast, LeFrak says, there’s something for everyone. “My wife is a composer; she loves the Frank Gehry – designed concert hall,” which opened in 2011 and is home to the New World Symphony. LeFrak’s name is intimately associated with the New York real estate scene—so much so that LeFrak City, a Queens apartment complex, is a city landmark. But that hasn’t stopped him from spending more and more time in Miami, a trend that began when he started working on the recapitalization of a troubled bank in 2009. Before long, he found himself as an investor in another financial institution and, as a result, owning a large inventory of unsold condos in Miami. “The world was yelling that this was a 20-year supply, a glut on the market, and we had real-time information that this was nonsense, that buyers were coming up from Latin America and literally inhaling them.” LeFrak remains a die-hard New Yorker, but the amount of time he has

spent in Miami has doubled, to about six weeks a year, and he now owns four condos in the city. He’s been spotted everywhere, from celebrating 1 Hotel & Homes (a coproduction with Barry Sternlicht, chairman of Starwood Capital Group) to dinner at Bâoli. Would he move here permanently? “I could,” he says, slowly. “A lot of my friends are thinking about Miami; they say it’s different than it was or than they thought. More and more, they’re willing to plant a stake in the ground.” The more members of the affluent crowd who make the move, the more follow. That’s the kind of chain reaction that LeFrak and others say is spurring the current real estate boom. “People like to be around their peers,” says Don Peebles (net worth: $350 million), CEO of a privately held, multibillion-dollar portfolio of real estate investments and developments. “Increasingly, that happens in Miami.” One of Peebles’s own real estate development partners is Steve Witkoff,

CEO of The Witkoff Group, which has a portfolio of residential and industrial real estate. “Our offices are 10 blocks apart in Manhattan, but I see him more in Miami than I do there,” Peebles adds. Indeed, wanting to hang around with fellow citizens of what journalist and author Robert Frank dubbed “Richistan” is one of the characteristics that distinguishes the world’s 1,600 or so billionaires and its slightly larger group of those able to boast of a net worth in the seven or eight figures. If you have a private jet and use it to hop from art fairs to business meetings to fashion shows, dropping in periodically at one of the four or five homes you may own worldwide, it’s tough to mingle with the hoi polloi. Only that tiny circle of peers really understands your world. And if a growing number of those peers are choosing to spend more of their time in Miami, shopping in the Design District or Bal Harbour (whose stores generate more in sales per square foot than any other mall in the world), then you want to be there too. It also makes sense economically. Florida is the ultimate in tax-friendly states: no personal state income tax to pay and no state inheritance tax. “Not only is it a great place to live, it’s also a great place to die,” quips Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine. And as long as you’re living, odds are you can do so more inexpensively—even at the ultraluxury end of the spectrum—than you could anywhere else on that Knight Frank list.

P

eebles, who built his fortune doing business in Washington, DC, rattles off the numbers. Buying a condo in a top New York building will cost you $5,000 per square foot; in an ultraluxury apartment, you’ll pay $13,000 per square foot. In Miami? Those figures are closer to $1,000 and $6,500, respectively. “It’s tough to pay more than that,” says Peebles. And in Miami, you get oceanfront views; in New York, if you want ocean, you have to venture out to the Hamptons, where lots on the waterfront start at $30 million for houses that most owners will only use a few months of the year. “A friend of mine paid $100 million for the lot alone—and then he had to build the house,” says

This past year Net Jets arranged around 200 flights to bring more than 800 guests

to Art Basel. Peebles, whose latest Miami venture, The Bath Club Estates—13 ultra luxury, customizable residences priced at $10 million to $55 million—are a bargain in comparison. He points out that in the same time it takes him to make the arduous weekend drive out to his Bridgehampton house from Manhattan, he can hop on his jet and travel all the way down to Miami. While Peebles’s target audience is domestic, those bargains are equally compelling to buyers from Europe. Miami also offers a way for ultrawealthy citizens from Russia, China, and Latin America to hedge some of their bets on their still-emerging local economies. As Edgardo Defortuna pointed out, when he first moved to Miami from Buenos Aires three decades ago, it wasn’t just exciting, but safe—he could drive his sports car down the highway without worrying about kidnappers. And that global twist to the tale may mark the biggest change since the last time Miami was this hot, back in the aforementioned Rat Pack days. “If Brazil is booming and Venezuela collapses, Miami benefits,” says Mayor Levine. “If Venezuela suddenly explodes, and Brazil goes south, we’d benefit as wealthy Brazilians choose to come to Miami.” All that movement is spilling over into consumption, especially during the height of the billionaire season: Art Basel Miami Beach in early December.

That’s when the jewelry and watch stores at Bal Harbour, always flush with one-of-a-kind items, fly in their priciest and choicest offerings from elsewhere in the world to tempt buyers. And unsurprisingly, that’s when top-tier luxury buildings make their most subtle and most convincing pitches to those who come for the art and decide to stick around for the lifestyle. “We try to entertain them, to show them the possibilities,” says Defortuna, “because they’re coming more often, staying for weeks at a time, and they know that trying to get a hotel for Art Basel is almost impossible. They can buy without having to worry about it; they can make another base here, whether or not they ever decide to relocate.”

A

nother element that has helped make Miami so appealing to the ultrawealthy today is its diversity. As real estate prices soar, diversity can all too easily evaporate. “If this became a homogeneous society of wealthy people, it wouldn’t be very appealing,” says Mayor Levine, who is focused on improving public-transportation links, “workforce housing” initiatives, and developing subsidized office spaces lining a park near Miami Beach’s new

There’s a hangover effect of the “Occupy” movement and the 2012 presidential election debate, in which the growing national wealth gap emerged as a topic of contention. With the Miami City Commission’s decision to give the green light to a $600 million project that would include berths for billionaires’ superyachts, Miami Herald columnist Fred Grimm vented his wrath, arguing that Miami seems to exist only to solve “rich guy travails” like trying to “parallel park a 150-foot yacht” as “we fawn, we grovel, we see to the whims of the super rich.” That’s one argument. Another is that to the extent that these ultrawealthy individuals put down roots and invest in the community, what we’re witnessing today could just be the earliest stages of a far more dramatic and long-lasting transformation of Miami into another London or Hong Kong. “The Miami of 10 years ago doesn’t resemble what is here today,” argues LeFrak. “A decade from now, it will be radically different again.” OD

anhattan has Hedge Fund Alley—a stretch of 57th Street that scores of financial wizards call home. Can Miami replicate this success story by convincing a critical mass of hedge fund managers to relocate to Florida, forming a kind of “Hedge Fund Bayou”? It is certainly trying, and the current wave of billionaires taking up residence in the city include a pioneering group of hedge fund managers. Some are dipping their toe in the water, buying a second home in Miami, say, or opening a second office in the city. Owl Creek Asset Management, for instance, may still have its main office on Fifth Avenue, but its founder, Jeffrey Altman, has bought a home in Miami Beach, says the city’s mayor, Philip Levine. Others are making a bigger commitment. Everest Capital, accustomed to doing business in markets that others look on more warily—its major investments are in emerging and so-called frontier markets, such as China, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia—has shifted its US headquarters to Miami. Eddie Lampert, of ESL Investments, has moved both his personal and business headquarters to Miami. Lampert himself dropped about $38 million for an Indian Creek Village mansion, and the official fund headquarters is now in Bay Harbor Islands. Mark Spitznagel of Universa Investments packed up his things from sunny Santa Monica for the sun of Miami, and plans to have 25 employees here. It was a financial move so important to the state of Florida that Governor Rick Scott announced the move. Now that financial markets have become so computerdriven, it doesn’t much matter where the person placing trades resides, as long as the computer infrastructure connecting him (and the vast majority of the time it’s still a “him”) to the exchange on which the trades take place is fast and efficient. In the case of ESL, many back-office employees still work at the firm’s former offices in Greenwich, Connecticut; other hedge fund managers have simply persuaded their key employees to relocate. Mutual funds and private-equity firms, such as Fairholme Capital Management and HIG Capital, are already up and running here in Miami. The sell for all of these companies, besides the weather, of course, is the tax advantage. With the popular pressure building to reclassify investment gains as ordinary income rather than capital gains—a move that would put a big dent in their personal net worth—anything that might help the hedge fund managers cut their tax liabilities is usually more than welcome. As DDA Chairman and Miami City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff recently proclaimed, “Financial firms can access the same technology, the same high-quality office space, and the same cosmopolitan lifestyle in Miami without paying sky-high income taxes.”

But wedged between small area growers and chefs looking for between two shipping ware- local goods. As foragers started seeking more and more houses is row after resplendent row of potted plants, 50 kinds in sources, they found urban farmers, including all—Thai basil, Salanova lettuce, GROW, whose genesis came out of a quest for pungent Mexican hoja santa, and the new hybrid BrusselKale. Walk 10 yards and you pass through layers of aromas from winter tarragon to mint and lavender. At any one time, there are between 20,000 and 50,000 plants growing in this vacant, one-acre industrial strip that, until six years ago, was an abandoned railroad track. Now it’s part of an organic farming operation run by Rock Garden, a produce shipping company. The plot also doubles as an educational landscape for the nonprofit Miami GROW Project (short for Green Railroad Organic Workshop) run by Thi Squire. “GROW is about turning a situation where you would never think you could grow an edible, and making it work,” says Squire. “Making it work” is the essence of urban farming, which is currently popping up throughout Miami’s burgeoning food scene. In South Florida, GROW and a handful of other small plots that make up Miami’s urban farm movement are producing leafy greens that will end up on plates at forward-leaning restaurants such as Michael’s Genuine Food & A salad at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink is made Drink, The Dutch, Tongue & Cheek, with ingredients from local growers.

Chris Padin, who forages for all of Michael Schwartz’s properties as well as other restaurants, says, “When we started, we had a tough time breaking through, but in the last three years we’ve seen a lot more farm-to-table chefs pop up. It’s definitely on the rise.”

rive north of the relatively domesticated El Portal and North Miami on NE Sixth Avenue and you’ll eventually notice a neighborhood that somehow seems more feral. Through an unmarked gate is Little River Market Garden. Unlike industrial Rock Garden, this plot feels more like Costa Rica. Jungle encroaches at the edges, dragonflies dart about, and what appears to be a freerange toddler wobbles through rows of lettuce, making a beeline for a mulberry bush. Farmer and mom Muriel Olivares scoops up the child, Bimini, and lets both of us pick a berry. It’s warm from the sun and tastes jammy and vibrant. “Bimini can just walk around here and eat,” says Olivares. “She knows what’s edible and what’s not.” Olivares, who leases this three-acre plot, grew up in Miami and worked as a florist, but left the industry over concerns about toxic chemicals. Now she and friend Tiffany Noé use permaculture techniques to farm about half an acre here. That means no tractors but rather doing everything by hand, so there’s no carbon footprint other than what it takes to drive to the Upper East Side Farmers Market 90 blocks to the south. Tractor-friendly monoculture drains the soil of nutrients; by contrast, their hand-planted and hand-harvested farm looks more hodgepodge. In-between tomatoes, they grow beans; between slow-growing parsley, there’s quick-growing radishes. As a means of moneymaking, urban farming is literally and figuratively a tough row to hoe.

Olivares’s crops go to her CSA and to the Upper East Side Farmers Market, run by the Urban Oasis Project. Noé’s crops also go to the farmers market, as well as to Mandolin Aegean Bistro. “Small urban farmers can’t provide the convenience that a big distributor can, so for a restaurant that’s really busy, it’s hard for them to make the time,” says Olivares. “My first target is retail price, which is the average consumer at the farmers market. Whatever I can’t sell through that avenue, I try to sell to Proper Sausages, Zak the Baker, Michael’s Genuine, and Meals on Heels, which is a nonprofit organization that does events and dinners locally.” Olivares makes a “modest” living from the CSA, and her significant other has a job. Noé pulls a salary from Mandolin and has a business called Plantmatter, which helps people and restaurants install and maintain small growing spaces for their own food and flowers. Even so, the women are looking to expand to an additional plot.

about is a new, outsized urban farm called Verde Community Farm and Market in Homestead. At 22 acres, it’s vastly larger than any urban farm in the region, if not the country, and could expand to twice that size. And it’s all thanks to Hurricane Andrew. After the devastating storm in 1992, the housing and recreational complex for the Homestead Air Force Base was abandoned. “I would say that 100 acres was flattened,” says Squire, the director of the farm’s community outreach. The base was downsized, and the land sat for 20 years, overgrown with 10-foot-tall cane grass. Then, a couple of years ago, the federal government gave about 50 acres to the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust and affordable housing developer Carrfour Supportive Housing. They brought in the Urban Oasis Project

Bars, too, such as The Broken Shaker and Blackbird Ordinary, have herb gardens. The eatery that’s made the biggest commitment, though, is Mandolin Aegean Bistro, whose owners, husband and wife Ahmet Erkaya and Anastasia Koutsioukis, converted a 3,000-square-foot lot behind the restaurant into an intensive garden managed by Tiffany Noé.

T

he garden is far too small to serve all of Mandolin’s needs, but it’s potent. They pick their produce at 9 AM and serve it within hours. “My favorite reaction is when people order our field green salad. Everyone says, ‘Oh my God, what’s this dressing? It’s so peppery and delicious.’ And it’s not the dressing, it’s the ingredients,” says Koutsioukis. The access to a living (but limited) garden has pushed creativity. “Tiffany will hile Olivares and tell our chefs what will be available, and Noé are considwe create a dish around it—it keeps us on ered leaders in the our toes,” says Koutsioukis.

he opening earlier this year of Mybrickell (75 SE Sixth St., Miami, 305442-0055; mybrickell.us), designed by Karim Rashid in collaboration with Arquitectonica, was more significant than most of the party attendees probably realized. Sure, as one of the first condo towers in Miami to be completed in years, it was a sign of the real estate market’s revival. Yes, it involved a “hip” designer—Rashid—and true, Mybrickell had sold very well. But this quirky, brightly colored tower with moderately priced units was the physical realization that, in Miami, you can’t just throw up a building. There’s a design one-upmanship movement afoot, and you have to keep up. Now that architecture is all the rage, the city is benefiting from a broader range of players setting a higher standard than before the last boom and bust. Stemming from Miami’s starchitecture craze, we marked a spike in designer collaborations on new real estate projects.

development by The Related Group and Gil Dezer in Sunny Isles Beach, and the recent purchase of the iconic Raleigh Hotel by Tommy Hilfiger himself. The Design District’s reconstruction project has the neighborhood overflowing with collaborations between fashion and architecture. Hilfiger has kept mostly mum about what he plans to do at the Raleigh, beyond giving it an extensive restoration “to its original, chic Art Deco style,” and running it as an exclusive private club and hotel. The very historically conscious fashion designer may just create a world in which his clothes fit the context perfectly, or vice versa. The biggest development going on in Miami Beach right now, Faena District Miami Beach (faenamiamibeach.com), is a collaboration on steroids. Its developer, Alan Faena, has collected a flock of architects, artists, designers, and even moviemakers to whip up a Wonderland-like neighborhood out of a section of Miami Beach that was for years in the doldrums. The Faena District will have a hotel, arts center, ultraexpensive condominium tower, cabaret, and a “bazaar.” Hollywood film director Baz Luhrmann and his partner in work and life, Catherine Martin, have taken the helm at the flagship element of the project, the historic Saxony Hotel. The hotel will become the embodiment of the kinds of over-the-top, ultraextraordinary worlds that Luhrmann routinely creates in his movies. Far from a Disney World-like realization of The Great Gatsby or Moulin Rouge!, the hotel will set the tone for Faena’s entire Miami Beach universe. “Faena Miami Beach is a country, with a flag, a coat of arms, and heraldic symbols” designed by Studio Job, Faena has said. “You do in reality what [Martin] and I do in the

theater,” Luhrmann tells Faena in a promotional video. “Faena Miami: It’s like it’s a movie, but it’s real.” Up Collins Avenue, the romance of a cinematic Paris has been replaced by the roar of a roadster…. 30 floors up. Gil Dezer worked with the Porsche Design Studio on the Porsche Design Tower, which contains three car elevators that transport you and your vehicle to a sky garage within your unit. As you park just off your living room, windows in the garage offer ocean views before you open your car door. The tower, with its pool-bedecked balconies and on-site mechanic (for basic luxury auto maintenance) is for boys who love their toys and, having struck it rich somewhere or other, finally have the means to realize their inner video game fantasies. Echo Brickell (1451 Brickell Ave., Miami, 786360-1904; echobrickell.com), meanwhile, a 180-unit development by PMG, might top that. The company has partnered with Tesla Motors to give every penthouse owner a fully loaded Tesla Model S. Of course the building will be equipped with charging stations so owners can just “battery up” and go. These days, decent art in the lobby just isn’t enough. The 47-story Muse (793 NE 125th St., Miami, 305-899-0014; muse-miami.com), which consists of 68 oceanfront residences, is partnering with world-renowned sculpture artist Helidon Xhixha, who will be conducting one-on-one interviews with buyers and creating personal sculptures, valued at over $500,000, for each unit. Miami’s new style collaborations indulge the fantasies of residents, hotel guests, or just people on the street. In each instance, outside talent can create something stunning, over the top, or simply beautiful. Either way, it’s fun to watch. OD

One of the biggest chefs in New York, Tom Colicchio, is doing his first restaurant in Miami here at 1 Hotel & Homes. Then you have the culture, the vibrancy of South Beach, and, most importantly, the pedestrian nature of this city. New Yorkers love that. PB: For New Yorkers, it’s convenience. Like you said, they don’t want to drive. They want easy access to everything, with a sophisticated attitude. They want the building with the amenities. You guys really hit every target [with 1 Hotel & Homes]—its location, Tom Colicchio, access to the ocean. That’s why you’re getting all these New Yorkers. 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, 2399 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-361-5100; 1hotels.com/ southbeach.

Michael Tillman: When people come here, their natural attention is to the Beach. Most heads of the companies know the Beach. It’s a proven entity, and even in the cyclicality, it has remained relatively stable and is the first to grow again. There is more and more interest from New York developers who want to start platforms down here. It’s saying something different for the South Florida market. When developers at the [level] of LeFrak start showing up, they expect certain infrastructure developments to be happening, which you’re seeing. Those were necessary to attract the attention of bigger guys. Pietro Belmonte: We started seeing New York [buyers] coming down before it was a tough market. It’s a trend that’s been happening for the last two years. MT: New York has made a huge presence, and it’s a different kind of money. It’s not necessarily capital that’s looking to get into the safety of the shore of the United States. This is a second house, a third, fifth, sixth. PB: They’re seeing an opportunity—who else is going to think $2,500 a square foot is a screaming deal? This is a bargain, and they want to be on the sand. MT: The buyer who’s coming down wants to be on the beach, so we did something very creative [at 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach]. We took the concrete wall off the eastern end, and it is glass from floor to ceiling. Those end-cap units are our units in most demand. They’re two and three bedrooms, going at around $2,200 per square foot. We have 156 condos and we’ve sold about 60, and 30 percent of sales are from the Northeast. PB: Before, developers were like, “How many Brazilians do you know? How many Venezuelans?” Now it’s, “Who’s connected to New York?” I sold

TREND TALK

ead to Looking ah c inserts in sheer fabri 015 Summer 2

Judy Stein sheds some light on what’s in and what’s to come for the summer season. 2015 FASHION FORECAST

Which current swim trend has been the easiest to include in your wardrobe?

It will be an eclectic year for swim. Look for nostalgic prints or kitschy fruit and retro ginghams and polka dots. Romantic floral prints and ruffled pieces will continue to add a girlish pop to the season’s styles, while asymmetrical plunging, cut outs, sheer fabric inserts, mesh and fishnet give an edgy, sexy appeal. Iridescent, metallic, and brocade materials will shine; while lace and crochet might be the most inspiring resources of the upcoming year.

Being an avid health nut, I work out everyday so the Sports Bra Top is one of the current swim trends that I can really utilize on my beach run in a really efficient and effective way!

What do you look forward to most during Miami Swim Week? SwimShow is in many ways a family reunion for the swimwear industry. Every year our show is where everyone from the industry gathers for four days and I love the camaraderie of catching up with friends that I haven’t seen all year and meeting new members of our wonderful swimwear family. This is a close industry where many people have known each other for years so there is a wonderful warmth when we all come together.

Tell us a little about a look you are loving for this summer. At the moment I am obsessed with suits worn with vintage t-shirts and minimalistic sneakers. It carries a rock & roll type of edge that I just love. What do you look forward to most during Miami Swim Week? I love fashion and fitness. Both play a super important role in my life so my favorite aspect of swim week is that you have the two combined. What swim suit makes you feel your best? Osklen swimsuits are one of my favorites, the fit, comfort and designs are impeccable.

Where do you find inspiration for your summer wardrobe? My activities inspire my summer looks. I like to think about functionality and the atmosphere of where I am headed. What swimsuit makes you feel your best? I love a colorful, flattering one piece, especially one that looks like a piece of artwork all by itself. What’s your favorite swim trend this summer? Rashguards. They’re functional, sun protective, and cute. For this reason, I’m really loving what Nanette Lepore is doing.

ALEXANDRA KNIGHT INTERNATIONAL MODEL DAYTOKNIGHT.COM

What has inspired your summer look? I’m inspired by color and shape. I’m loving the sport luxe vibrant feel. What is the highlight of Miami Swim Week? I love seeing the top designers and their new trends. Being Australian I’m always excited to see the Aussie beach babes behind our bikinis in Miami such as Lisa Blue and White Sands. What style swimsuit are you most drawn to? Geometric bold color bikinis are my favorite but I have been known to rock out an old school one-piece with a low back. I think this look is so classic.

R SV P Star of the Strip TWO-MICHELIN-STAR CHEF DANNY GRANT WOWS IN MIAMI WITH HIS SMALL-PLATE MENU AT 1826 RESTAURANT & LOUNGE. BY JULIA FORD-CARTHER

C

roquettes, fried cheese-and-meat-filled morsels, are almost a prerequisite on Miami menus. But at 1826 Restaurant & Lounge, chef Danny Grant’s leek and black-truffle take demonstrates the talent that made him a Michelin-star winner and Food & Wine’s Best New Chef of 2012—all in one mouthful. “We evolved the recipe in my apartment, and then we got to the kitchen and everything changed,” says Grant, who spent his first months in Miami getting to know the local farmers and fishermen from whom he sources his ingredients. “There was an issue with mass production rather than doing small batches at my house—but it was fun troubleshooting!” For the menu at 1826, Grant was inspired by Miami’s warm weather and seasonal ingredients. “Being here has changed my approach to cooking,” says the 32-year-old chef, who previously helmed kitchens at NoMI and

Ria at the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago. “The coast, the style of life, and the weather have pushed me toward cooking more light, delicate food.” 1826’s small-plate menu includes staples like the leek croquettes, beef tartare, and parsley-grilled short ribs that anchor an ever-changing lineup with in-season items. Upstairs in 1826’s two-story lounge, Grant translates cocktails into platters of alcohol-infused fruits and seafood boards that feature vodka-cured salmon. And it’s not just the mouthwatering bites that are attracting an A-list crowd—the view also has its allure. Separated by a floor-to-ceiling glass façade, the buzz of Collins Avenue provides an electric backdrop to the restaurant’s intimately industrial-chic interior. Says Grant, “I want people to know that they’re going to have an amazing experience every time they’re here.” 1826 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-763-8860; 1826collins.com OD

Parting Shot Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need Roads MIAMI’S OBSESSION WITH ARRIVING IN STYLE IS TAKING TRAVEL TO NEW HEIGHTS. BY JON WARECH

I

ride the bus. Don’t tell anyone. Please. It’s important that no one finds out. I live in Miami Beach, where riding the bus is taboo. This isn’t New York City, where millionaires rub elbows (literally) with the homeless on public transportation and pat themselves on the back for being “real New Yorkers.” This is Miami Beach, where, much like on our golf courses, it’s not how you drive but how you arrive. Take Justin Bieber, for example. When he was here in January, he could barely drive at all, according to police, who nabbed the pop tart for allegedly speeding while under the influence in a $200,000 Lamborghini Gallardo. Wherever he was going (in this case jail for the night), he was arriving in style. That car made headlines. That’s Miami—style first. You can take an air-conditioned local bus in Miami Beach for 25 cents, or you can rent a DecoBike, where, for $4, you’ll be much hotter but look way cooler. There’s also Segways, Vespas, Beach Cruisers, scooters, and mopeds—all carefully portraying a certain image, and mostly form over function. We drive restored Jeeps that took $75,000 to make “new” again, then break down on the I-95 (true story), convertibles without their tops that can’t be driven on rainy days, Porsches that can’t make it through flooding on Alton, and two-seaters even though there are three of us. Thinking green? It’s not easy being green

in Miami. Unlike in Los Angeles, where every other car is a Prius (average base price of the 2014 model: $25,000, according to Kelley Blue Book), here we prefer the Tesla, an advanced, electronic luxury vehicle that even with a federal tax credit has a starting cost more than double that of the Prius. But cost comes secondary in the Magic City. We fight to bring Uber (the town car alternative to taxis) to our city because, ugh, cabs, gross. We send our tourists who want to see both where Diddy lives and Versace was killed on Duck Tours—a Back to the Future-esque boat/bus contraption that goes on both land and sea—because it just looks cooler than those double-decker buses in every other city (although I have seen a few of those here now too). And we take out second mortgages on our homes to arrive at LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau in something only Bieber should borrow. In Miami, there’s a Lamborghini on every corner, and most of them have to be back to the dealership by morning. The arrival is the beginning to the great night that only this city can provide, and there is no way someone popping magnum bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne inside will be seen popping out of some stinky taxicab outside. It’s a battle of bigwigs, one-upping from one car to the next, and with locals and tourists alike trying to outdo one another in the transportation game, what’s next? Helicopters landing outside of Prime 112? Jet packs taking tourists above and beyond the gridlock? “Renting ambulances is the new thing to avoid traffic,” says LIV’s David Grutman. I’m not sure he’s kidding. OD
