The moon-phase indication needs to be periodically corrected. About once every four generations.

The SAXONIA ANNUAL CALENDAR provides five different time indications at a glance: the time of day, outsize date, day of week, month, and moon phase. The latter, mathematically speaking, only needs to be adjusted by one day every 122 years. This accuracy of 99.998 % is generated by the bidirectional self-winding movement. All of the 476 individual parts are

finished with the utmost care, even the ones you cannot see through the sapphire-crystal caseback. This micromechanical treasure will still gleam with its original perfection when the moon-phase display needs to be corrected for the first time. This masterpiece is available only from the world’s finest retailers. Hamilton Jewelers in Palm Beach is one of the chosen few.

A. Lange & Söhne congratulates Hamilton Jewelers on 100 years as a family-owned business

“Almost every day here is fun; today has been more fun than most.” That’s what one of the members of our team said about the day we finalized the cover for the sixtieth anniversary issue of Palm Beach Illustrated. He was absolutely correct. It was a terrific day. Each month, the Operating Committee (our six department heads) and members of the creative team of our two flagship monthlies—Palm Beach Illustrated and Naples Illustrated—meet via video-conference to look at options for the upcoming covers. They offer opinions, argue for favorites and try to guess what will appeal to our subscribers or will jump off newsstands. “Guess” is the operative word. While we view our covers as pieces of art, correctly picking what will appeal and what will sell is certainly more guesswork than art, and it definitely is not science. Any veteran of this business will tell you the covers that create the most buzz, or sell the most magazines, often are a surprise. Endless research, industry analysts and dozens of “cover doctors” all lead to the same conclusion for the gray beards in our industry: No one knows what works. The founding editor of People, a wonderful guy named Richard Stolley, who was the editor of Life at one point, developed 10 “rules” for covers. No. 10 was to never, ever, put a penguin on a cover. He and his team at Life had what they thought was the best images from Antarctica ever and put on the cover what they deemed the most delightful, energetic and fun wildlife photo. It bombed. That was it for penguins. Stolley’s Rule No. 1 is: “Recently dead celebs.” They do wonders for magazines. It’s rather macabre, but think John Lennon, Princess Diana and Michael Jackson. People thrives on those. Stolley ruefully noted, however, you can’t depend on one every week. Thankfully, Palm Beach Illustrated and Naples Illustrated have a different mission. Our brand signature is fashion on the cover, executed with a creative vision and by a talented crew of photographers, models, stylists and design experts. Add top-quality paper and printing to the mix, and you have a beautiful, hopefully iconic, representation of the luxury lifestyle in our markets. Anniversary issues always present a special challenge. In this case, a lively debate went on much longer than our cover meetings normally last. The creative team presented some amazing options, prompting the “today has been more fun than most” remark. Go to and search “anniversary cover” to see the options for our cover selection. Feel free to tell us which one you would have picked. And be assured, you won’t see any penguins or the dearly departed. That wouldn’t be nearly as much fun.

Town Center at Boca Raton 561.368.1493


Sixty years young


n 1952, when this magazine was founded, Palm Beach was a very different place—the pace was slower and the mood one of perpetual leisure. A few family dynasties, many with household names, dominated the scene. You could actually find a table at your favorite restaurant and a parking spot on Worth Avenue (if you drove at all). But some things haven’t changed. Then and now, Palm Beach was the epicenter of social activity in the winter, churning out a whirlwind of parties, one more glamorous and exclusive than the next. In the ’50s, Palm Beach was an American legend—and still is. Sixty years later, we celebrate Palm Beach, past and present, and our role in chronicling the glamour and gaiety of this great American playground. This issue, our diamond-anniversary edition, is a nod to the Palm Beach that was and a tribute to its considerable evolution. We begin with our signature feature, “The Palm Beach 20.” This year, we feature some local legends—persons who have made an indelible mark on the local scene—as well as individuals who are shaking things up now, setting the stage for the next 60 years. Turn to page 84 to see who made this year’s lineup, and check out some behind-the-scenes shots below. One thing that has been enduring since the first cornerstone was laid is the locals’ appetite for gorgeous jewelry. Because it’s our diamond anniversary, we focus exclusively on the queen of all gemstones. See the glittering array of some of our favorite diamond jewels in “Cool as Ice,” on page 142. Crystals may not be diamonds, but they can be oh, so chic in the hands of the Swarovski family. We visit Nadja Swarovski and family at their compound in Vero Beach’s Windsor for a glimpse at their Florida lifestyle. Though the living is quiet and carefree, the home itself packs a major “wow” factor. See for yourself in “Crystal Clear,” on page 118. There is much more to love about this issue—a classic Palm Beach dinner party and entertaining tips by beloved islander Tom Quick, a 1950s-inspired fashion story photographed at a local mansion by fabulous Italian photographer Gian Andrea di Stefano, midcentury design vignettes by local designers, and the list goes on. Enjoy every page of it—and join us as we celebrate this momentous milestone.

v Martin Short

One of the most versatile actors in Hollywood, Martin Short’s career spans television, movies and Broadway, with plenty of acting, singing, writing and producing along the way. Known for his fearless comedic performances, Short created iconic characters such as

Saturday Night Live’s Ed Grimley, a triangle-playing nerd obsessed with Wheel of Fortune; Franck Eggelhoffer, the flamboyant event planner with a mysterious accent in the Father of the Bride movie series; and Jiminy Glick, a heavyset and patronizing celebrity interviewer who knows very little about pop culture. These days, Short is the voice of the titular feline in the TV series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, has a recurring role on How I Met Your Mother and is a judge on Canada’s Got Talent, which airs this month. As part of a nationwide tour, he is coming to the Kravis Center on March 28 to perform a one-man comedic show in which he’ll bring many of his characters to life. —Jennifer Pfaff n You’ve created so many well-known characters

and starred in so many recognizable roles. What is your favorite or most meaningful? I don’t have a favorite. It sounds pretentious, but they become your kids. You like them all. You’ve created them all. I usually let people tell me what they like. Comedy is a very subjective animal. So what one person might like, the other person might despise. But that’s all okay. n Can you tell us about Franck Eggelhoffer’s

background and his accent? Where is he from? I never determined that. I felt that he was born in Eastern Europe but he’d summered in France and he’d wintered in St. Barths and he’d been on yachts, and so his accent was so filled with pretention that at times he’d say, “Yes,” and at times he’d say, “Yah.” n What is your life motto? To be happy. Everything happens to people, and you just have to figure out a way to still find happiness and joy in life, because it’s not a rehearsal. This is it. | March 2012 49

Fresh Finds Palm Beach is known for its bright resort wear—which is why Asquared Fashion and Design Lounge doesn’t carry any of it. The El Cid boutique, at 319 Belvedere Road, offers a refreshing assortment of fashion, art and home decor gems from up-and-coming designers, including Poor Cat Designs jewelry and locally based Allegra Fanjul accessories, Axi Mines watches and Tony Arruza photography. Southern belles Angela Koch Stockham, owner, and Allison Wilder, manager, both from Louisiana, compiled a neutral-colored palette of lightweight apparel and classic yet edgy accessories like hand-stitched leather handbags and python skin clutches. Linger and chat in one of the boutique’s two plush sitting areas, and you’ll feel right at home in this carefree shopping space. (561-318-5987,

Language learning As a multilingual speaker, part-time Palm Beacher Caryn Antonini wanted her infant son to learn another language at an early age. When she couldn’t find adequate teaching tools, she created her own. Antonini’s Early Lingo DVDs present a mix of animation and live-action footage as native-language speakers narrate the playful experiences of Jojo and Lulu, an animated monkey and bird. Importantly, there’s no English translation, so toddlers as young as six months absorb the language by watching and listening. Now, Antonini’s 2-year-old son babbles in English, Italian and Spanish—not your average toddler talk. The DVDs, available in six languages, are sold at C. Orrico, Palm Beach.

style v tastemakers Be Inspired Handbag designer Be Inthavong was born in Laos but grew up in Texas, where his family emigrated when he was 8. Like many young immigrants, he vowed to live the life of a westerner, but upon revisiting his homeland after college, he reconnected with his roots in a powerful, unexpected way. Soon after, he began a career in design, spanning the gamut from jewelry to hair accessories. Eventually, he answered a calling to handbag design, forming Be & D with partner Steve Dumain. He left that company in 2009 and launched his own signature collection of bags, using an original technique inspired by Laotian weaving traditions with a modern twist. The bags, made of microstrips of leather woven with silk and presented in an array of resort colors, are carried exclusively by Saks Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach. —Daphne Nikolopoulos

diversions first class v UNTAMED SAFARI Experience Botswana’s rich wildlife away from the madding crowd. By Paul Rubio

A wonderland of prolific floodplains, dense woodlands and nutrient-rich semideserts, Botswana’s landmass is a recipe for wildlife prosperity. With fewer than two million people in a nation the size of France, this precious tract of planet Earth is ruled by the animals. And the adventurous traveler is handsomely rewarded for taking southern Africa’s road less traveled.

Tented luxury at Chobe Under Canvas in Botswana’s remote Chobe National Park. | MARCH 2012 71

diversions v first class

Clockwise from top: Watching the elephants cross the Zambezi River; the living room of Nxabega; gathering by the fire at Chobe Under Canvas; an elephant close encounter.



Botswana’s game-rich north headlines the safari diaries of the globe’s savviest wildlife enthusiasts. The remote safari camps of the Okavango Delta pepper the breathtaking floodplains, reached exclusively by small, light aircraft, which are required to traverse the undeveloped terrain. Lodges here are categorized as either “wet” or “dry,” depending on proximity to the permanent flood zones, thus determining if a road vehicle or a boat will serve as the primary method of transportation after touchdown. Though located on a dry edge of the wetlands bordering Moremi Game Reserve, &Beyond Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp showcases the best of the delta’s dichotomous offerings. Extensive dirt roads weave through the 19,800-acre wildlife concession Nxabega calls home. With exclusive rights to this stunning swath of land, Nxabega doles out Africa’s most candid wildlife moments without competition from other vehicles or lodges. This exclusivity trans-

lates into intimate, hours-long sessions with prides of curious lions, foraging herds of elephants and boisterous baby hyenas at your own pace and with no other humans in sight—a far cry from the more typical crowded safari experience. To complement the game drives, the Nxabega team capitalizes on the crystal clear channels defining the delta, offering the splendidly romantic mokoro experience—a leisurely boat ride along the papyrus-lined banks of the floodplains in a dugout canoe, where 360-degree immersion in the delta’s beauty of low-lying islands completely ambushes your senses. Back at the camp, an oasis of alfresco luxury awaits. The Nxabega enclave consists of nine exclusive tented suites and a number of common dining and social areas, all of which unassumingly blend into the wilderness. The tented suites feature luxurious bathrooms, private verandas overlooking the floodplain, and just enough canvas to keep you feeling se-

changes from one of serenity to one of explosive encounters in the animal kingdom. No two days—or two hours—are the same. Though more hard-core and demanding than Nxabega (while still in the realm of luxury), Chobe Under Canvas is the ultimate untamed wildlife experience and the supreme way to experience Africa in the raw. u cure when you hear the elephants snoring and the leopards hunting come nightfall. Whether served in the privacy of your suite, by candlelight in the bush, or in the atmospheric outdoor dining room, each meal falls nothing short of experiential, featuring exotic farm-to-table ingredients and unbelievable fresh baked goods that could impress top French chefs. From the suite butler to your personal ranger, the on-site team demonstrates tremendous pride in both culture and work. Camp staff members often join guests after dinner to engage in traditional song and dance. No matter what time of day or night, the constant smiles, effortless hospitality and unwavering diligence elevate Nxabega to a category of its own. Africa teems with gorgeous lodges and majestic wildlife, but few places have yet to master this level of service. Nxabega’s culture of excellent service extends to its sister &Beyond camps beyond the delta. At &Beyond Chobe Under Canvas, a team of two dozen works tirelessly to facilitate exclusive “glamping” within the boundaries of Botswana’s renowned Chobe National Park. Though fewer creature comforts are offered in the spacious mobile tents, the wildlife experiences at Chobe are exceptional. And camping inside one of the most wildlife-intense national parks in the world conjures an extreme sense of adventure and excitement. Not only is Chobe home to one of the largest concentrations of elephants on the continent, its riverbanks and interiors are loaded with zebras, pukus, buffaloes, sable and roan antelope, eagles, lions and Nile crocodiles, too.

Audi’s dazzling new A7 four-door coupe is a feast for the eyes and just as breathtaking to drive. BY HOWARD WALKER

There’s a reason why so many new cars these days have all the visual excitement of a Maytag washer-dryer. Rules and regs on everything from bumper height to hood angle, from headlight size to grille surfacing—all in the good name of safety—will stifle a designer’s creativity as quickly as downing a pint of novocaine. Throw in the need for cars to be aerodynamically optimized, so as to cheat the wind and guzzle less gas, and you tend to end up with shapes spit out from mega-gig Dells that possess all the bold, angular tension of Play-Doh. Yet once in a while, a car comes along that breaks all the rules. A car so achingly gorgeous, so classy, so stylish, so darned sexy, you wonder whether it’s not some wild auto show concept never destined for production. But the stunning 2012 Audi A7 is up for grabs right now and grabbing more awards than Clooney on Oscar night: Autoweek Best of the Best, Esquire Car of the Year, Automobile of the Year. Word has it that it will soon be starring in its own reality TV show. What we have here is a big, fastback four-door, or four-door coupe; a variation on the theme created by the groundbreaking Mercedes-Benz CLS back in 2004. But the added surprise and delight the Audi provides is the addition of a giant, high-lifting tailgate and a cargo area equaled only by a PODS storage container in its 74


ability to swallow “stuff.” Never has practicality looked so pretty. Climb aboard and the coolness continues with a cabin that melds hand-stitched leather and awesome matte-finish veneer luxury with more cool technology than the inside of an Apple store. Most of the interior fixtures and fittings are sourced from Audi’s flagship A8, including the 8-inch full-color LCD screen that displays stunning Google Earth images. Sign up for T-Mobile and the Audi even becomes a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, supporting as many as eight devices. Then there’s the optional ear-bleeding 1,300-watt Bang & Olufsen stereo with über-cool motorized tweeters that levitate from the corners of the dash. And how cool is the A7’s magic touchpad on the center console? Instead of tapping buttons to input an address into the nav system, you simply draw the letters with your index finger on the small pad. Of course, the tradeoff of having a roofline that resembles a ski slope is that headroom in the back is a little tight. And getting into the two individual rear buckets requires care not to whack your head. But who says form really has to follow function? For such a biggish sedan with such athletic lines, you might expect to find a muscled V-8 under the hood. Instead, the Audi gets its considerable motivation from a 3.0-liter 310-horsepower supercharged V-6 coupled to a swift-shifting, super-responsive eightspeed automatic.


It’s a jewel of a motor, delivering rapid 0-to-60-mph sprinting in 5.4 seconds, yet averaging a socially responsible 28 miles to the gallon on the highway. But where the A7 excels is in its mid-range thrust, its 325 pound-feet of torque making light work of scything past slower traffic, or punching out of a tight on-ramp to join interstate traffic. And with Quattro all-wheel drive expertly and efficiently distributing all those torques among each of the wheels, the Audi feels beautifully balanced and nimble when scooting through tight curves. No complaints, either, with the steering, which has all the sharpness and precision of a Nip/Tuck scalpel. Yet despite the car’s sporty genes, the ride is surprisingly smooth, serene and composed, with just the right amount of firmness to remind you that you’re driving a German thoroughbred. You’ll pay a whisker over $60,000 to drive off in a new A7, though with a few must-have additions—like that $5,900 Bang & Olufsen sound system—it’s not too difficult to top $75-grand. But this new A7 would seem a good value at $100,000. In my book, a car that looks this delicious is pretty priceless. u

Palm Beach Illustrated celebrates local legends and fascinating

people shaping the local landscape.



The Advocate HARVEY OYER Photographed by Michael Price at the Trapper’s Cabin at Yesteryear Village, West Palm Beach

Harvey Oyer is a true renaissance man—prominent attorney, archaeologist, author, community advocate and conservationist are all titles he has earned and roles he juggles. The West Palm Beach resident, who traces his lineage to some of the county’s earliest inhabitants, including the legendary Barefoot Mailman, has been instrumental in preserving local history and educating future generations about it. His first children’s book, The Last Egret, is now mandatory reading for every fourth-grader countywide and has won five awards. He is justifiably proud of that contribution, though he’s had so many more. His most current projects include setting up nature habitat conservation banks throughout Florida and shepherding the completion of the 12,000-square-foot addition to the South Florida Science Museum, where he serves as a board member and pro bono lawyer.

The Power Couple Jack and Barbara Nicklaus Photo courtesy of Jim Mandeville/The Nicklaus Companies

Jack Nicklaus is hailed as one of golf’s greatest players, having won 118 professional tournaments in 50 years. Off the green, he and his wife, Barbara, who have lived in North Palm Beach since 1965, have captured titles together for their contributions to children’s health services. In 2005, they established the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, which has raised more than $15 million. They were inducted into the Ambassador David M. Walter International Pediatric Hall of Fame, and also have received The Boy Scouts of America Distinguished Citizens Award and the Francis Ouimet Lifelong Contributions to Golf Award.

The Pioneer Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau Vintage photo courtesy of Lilly Pulitzer

No one has done more for Palm Beach style than Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau. It’s a familiar story: In 1959, then the young wife of media mogul Peter Pulitzer, she opened a juice stand in Palm Beach. To disguise the citrus stains on her clothes, she began making her own brightly colored dresses, which eventually attracted more customers than the juice. Pulitzer’s spunk (she still has it), with some help from her friends, including then-First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, catapulted the brand to the fame it enjoys today. There is no question that when people think of Palm Beach, they think of Pulitzer’s cheery prints. Though she’s sold the company, her original vision still informs the design more than 50 years later. That’s what we call staying power.

The Lifesaver NANCY BRINKER Photographed by Robert Nelson at the Brinker residence, Palm Beach

A promise to her sister has made former U.S. Ambassador Nancy Brinker the savior of millions of women worldwide. Brinker created the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982, after the 1980 death of her sister. The name changed to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in 2007, but the mission remains the same—to find a cure for breast cancer. To that end, Brinker travels around the world wearing her pink ribbon to bring the cause into the forefront. Each year, more than a million people participate in Race for the Cure events in more than 120 cities around the world to help raise awareness and, most importantly, funds that go to research and programs.



The Arts Aficionado Alexander Dreyfoos Photographed by Robert Nelson at Dreyfoos Hall at the Kravis Center, West Palm Beach

If it weren’t for Alexander Dreyfoos, West Palm Beach may have never boasted the acclaimed cultural offerings it does today. The founder of Photo Electronics Corp. had a vision to build a world-class performing arts center in the city, and although the idea was scoffed at more than once, his perseverance never faded, and he formed the Palm Beach County Cultural Council in 1978 to generate support. His fundraising efforts paid off in 1992, when the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors. Since then, countless ballets, operas, symphonies, Broadway shows and more have graced the stage, and two venues have been added. But Dreyfoos didn’t stop there. In 1997, he donated $1 million to the Palm Beach School of the Arts, the largest education contribution in state history, prompting officials to rename the magnet high school after him. Today, Dreyfoos remains a lifetime member of the Kravis Center’s board of directors. | MARCH 2012 89

The Next Generation Kent and Loy Anderson, Tara Tobin, Chris DiSchino and Hilary Jordan Photographed by Robert Nelson in studio

There’s something to be said about a great party thrown by a group of energetic, bright young things. But when the party also has a purpose, so much the better. The next generation of Palm Beach philanthropists has found its calling with the Paradise Fund Casino Night, one of the season’s hottest parties. The people who are making it happen—brothers Kent and Loy Anderson, Tara Tobin, Chris DiSchino and Hilary Jordan—care more about doing good than partying it up with trust-fund babies. Their goal is to raise funds and educate their peers on social issues facing the community and the world. Past beneficiaries include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Turtle Nest Village and Homeless Coalition. Next month, they head to Haiti to help communities still suffering from the earthquake of 2010.

The Giver LESLY SMITH Photographed by Robert Nelson at the Smith residence, Palm Beach

Lesly Smith’s resume gives an overwhelming testament to her passion for giving back. She has helped support numerous local nonprofits, including the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, the Society of the Four Arts and the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach. Last year, she received the Distinguished Community Citizen Award from the Town of Palm Beach United Way, and the Garden Club of Palm Beach named a landscaping award after her. Currently, she is president of the Fortin Foundation of Florida and the Fortin Child Care Foundation. Smith was a member of the Palm Beach Town Council from 1993 to 2000, serving as council president from 1995 to 2000. From there, she ran a successful campaign for the mayor of Palm Beach, a position she held until 2005 and one about which she remains modest. “I myself had no great accomplishments,” she says. “Everything I achieved was due to the town council and wonderful staff of the Town of Palm Beach.”



The Perfect Host DAN PONTON Photographed by Robert Nelson at the Ponton residence, Palm Beach

Oh, the stories Dan Ponton could tell about Palm Beach society—yet he doesn’t. As the owner of Club Colette for 30 years, he has seen the island’s social fabric evolve, embellish and unravel many times over, and through it all he has remained the consummate host—polite, effervescent, generous, discreet. He brings the same energy to his philanthropic endeavors here and worldwide. Through his Daniel E. Ponton Fund for the Neurosciences, which he launched after undergoing surgery for a brain tumor at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, he helps bring innovative neurosurgery to Africans. Don’t let that polished image fool you; he rolls up his sleeves with the best of them. Each year, he travels to Africa (this spring he’ll be in Tanzania) to support the medics performing spine and brain surgery. | MARCH 2012 93

The Developer E. Llwyd Ecclestone III Photographed by Michael Price in front of the Regions Financial Tower, West Palm Beach

The landscape of Palm Beach County has changed quite a bit since E. Llwyd Ecclestone III arrived here in 1965, and he’s responsible for a lot of it. In addition to developments like Lost Tree Village and Old Port Cove as well as The Forum and Regions Financial Tower office buildings, he helped start the Benjamin School in 1974 and brought the PGA to Palm Beach Gardens by developing PGA National Resort & Spa. These days, when he’s not building student housing in Arizona, he loves to be on his sailboat, Artemis, which is docked in the Caribbean. Ecclestone has no plans to retire any time soon. In fact, he’s under doctor’s orders not to. “He said, ‘The best thing for you is don’t retire.’”



The Philanthropist PATRICK PARK Photographed by Robert Nelson at the Park residence, Jupiter

If you, like all good Palm Beachers, are out and about on the charity circuit, chances are you have seen one name appear over and over in event programs. Just this season alone, Patrick Park has supported the local American Cancer Society, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Cleveland Clinic, American Heart Association and Palm Beach Opera, among others. He is, hands down, one of the most generous souls in this community. He gives because he’s never had any illusions about his blessings. Wealth (his came from steel-related industries and private equity investments) is temporal, he says; sharing it serves a higher purpose. Whatever the motivation, he’s helped improve quality of life in Palm Beach by funding medical research, health care, culture (he is also a classically trained pianist) and the arts. | MARCH 2012 95

The Original Mimi McMakin Photographed by Robert Nelson at the McMakin residence, Palm Beach

It is rare, in this town of transplants, to find a born-and-raised Palm Beacher, let alone a fifth-generation Palm Beacher like interior designer Mimi McMakin. Her great-grandfather actually brought a house here by barge from New York in 1891. It’s still standing, right next door to McMakin’s home, which is in the island’s oldest church building. The founder of Kemble Interiors, whose design signature has practically become synonymous with Palm Beach style, loves the fact that she has lived here her whole life, “living barefoot” and riding around with the top down on her father’s white Cadillac. Palm Beach, she says, has always had a nice small-town attitude. “It may be more grand, there may be bigger cars, but I think there is a genuine spirit of caring in this town and of appreciation that we’re all here. It’s beautiful. There’s nothing more we could want. Perhaps a little more rain.” | MARCH 2012 97

The Chronicler LUCIEN CAPEHART Self-portrait by Lucien Capehart in studio

A hundred years from now, someone will be rifling through the archives of Palm Beach in the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries, and remarking about the iconic images of island society. Chances are, the photo credit on most of those will read “Lucien Capehart.” The quintessential society photographer of his time (he’s been at it for 38 years), Capehart has chronicled many of the moments that have shaped Palm Beach’s history. For that, he was one of five photographers honored by the Historical Society of Palm Beach County during its Archival Evening last year. In his rare spare time, he supports the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens through his efforts with the Gentlemen of the Garden, of which he’s been a member for the past 20 years. 98


The Fabulous Iris Apfel Photographed by Michael Price at the Apfel residence, Palm Beach

“The idea of doing this at my tender age, I’m just thrilled,” says fashion icon Iris Apfel, 90. “This” includes creating a line of accessories for the Home Shopping Network, designing a line of glasses for Eye-Bobs and being a visiting professor for the University of Texas, taking students around the Big Apple through a program called “UT in NYC.” That caught the attention of filmmaker Albert Maysles, who is doing a documentary about the part-time Palm Beacher, who splits her time between Florida and New York with Carl, her husband of 64 years. Apfel also inspired a line of makeup for MAC with bold lipstick colors like Pink Pigeon and Scarlet Ibis, all of which have sold out on the company’s website. She shows no signs of slowing down, but she is loving every minute of it. “I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t love it.” | MARCH 2012 99

The Tastemaker John Loring Photographed by Robert Nelson in studio

John Loring is a creative genius, as a designer, artist and author of 23 style and entertaining books. He is the design director emeritus of Tiffany & Co., a title he assumed in 2009 when he retired as the jewelry company’s design director. Retirement certainly has not slowed him down. “I only retired from going to meetings,” he says. He still does work for Tiffany, most recently on projects to celebrate the company’s 175th anniversary. Loring also is a trained artist who creates collages and prints, some of which are in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum, both in New York. He spends most of his time in Palm Beach, having grown tired of New York winters, and is working on his twenty-fourth book, this one about himself. But don’t expect juicy secrets. “Those will be in the sequel,” he says. | MARCH 2012 101

The Champion Chris Evert

Photographed by Tom DiPace

One of the biggest names in all of tennis, Chris Evert has called South Florida home all of her life, and she’s been making it a better place for at-risk children since her 1989 retirement through her Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic held each fall. Evert, who holds 157 Singles titles and 18 Grand Slam titles, still loves the game, playing with kids at her eponymous Boca Raton academy and at various events. While she considers her biggest achievement her three children, when it comes to tennis, “the fact that I helped to inspire and encourage young girls to play the sport and set goals is most rewarding.” 102 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

The Provocateur Bruce Helander Photographed by Robert Nelson at Helander Studio, West Palm Beach

Bruce Helander brought a touch of rebellion to Palm Beach in 1982 when he opened a contemporary art gallery on Worth Avenue. For 13 years, Helander Gallery showcased cutting-edge, provocative exhibits by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist and Duane Hanson. In 1985, Helander removed the windows of the gallery to bring in six seven-foot-tall John Chamberlain sculptures made of wrecked cars. Yet the biggest shock value came from a John De Andrea piece called “The Sphinx,” a realistic statue of a nude woman displayed in the front window for five weeks. “We went through a case of Windex in a week,” Helander says. The curator also was an outspoken member of Palm Beach’s Architectural Commission, fighting to preserve existing architecture on the island while allowing for more modern estates to be built. Helander, known for his pop art collages, now is editor-in-chief of The Art Economist, a contemporary art magazine. | MARCH 2012 103

The Historian Jim Ponce Photographed by Michael Price at The Breakers, Palm Beach

A living throwback to a more genteel time, Jim Ponce is a fount of information about the history of Palm Beach and its grandest hotel. Ponce, 92, gives weekly tours of The Breakers, where he started as a front desk clerk in 1952. He regales visitors with historical facts mixed in with his own 60 years’ worth of memories, including when gentlemen wouldn’t dream of coming into the hotel lobby without a coat and tie, and everyone dressed formally for dinner. “I think people appreciate that a lot of the things I am mentioning are things I am speaking of from experience,” he says. 104 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

The Gentleman Michael McCarty Photographed by Robert Nelson at Michael R. McCarty’s, Palm Beach

Michael McCarty was 18 years old and living in New York City when he first visited Palm Beach in 1973. It was love at first sight when he set foot on the relaxing, quaint beach town. He returned every year before eventually becoming a permanent resident, and then opening a restaurant in 2002 that has become the place to see and be seen on the island. Michael R. McCarty’s captures the essence of a cozy, intimate Palm Beach, with its British Colonial decor, tropical terrace and home-cooked American fare. At night, the establishment turns into a real-life crowded Cheers, where socialites frequent the bar and everybody knows your name. The lively yet casual restaurant epitomizes McCarty’s fond feelings of his first Palm Beach experience. His favorite item on the menu? “Fried green tomatoes. I just think they’re fabulous,” he says.

The Preservationists Kit Pannill and Talbott Maxey Photographed by Robert Nelson at the Pannill residence, Palm Beach

The bond between mothers and daughters can move mountains—or, in the case of Kit Pannill (right) and Talbott Maxey, build communities. For her part, Pannill has helped preserve and beautify Palm Beach through her involvement in the Preservation Foundation, the Garden Club, and the Society of the Four Arts and its gardens. She also is a horticulture judge for the Garden Club of America, an honor reserved for only the most knowledgeable garden experts. Her green thumbprint has helped educate a new generation of horticulturists, and has made the local landscape a little richer—for the benefit of all. And the proverbial apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree. Maxey is carrying on her mother’s legacy though her own involvement in the Four Arts (she is a founding member of the Contemporaries young-friends group) and Preservation (she is on the executive committee). She enjoys being involved “in the things toward which my mother has steered me,” but also has an agenda of her own. She is co-chairing the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital gala and has chaired the dinner for the Community Foundation, where she started a donor-advised fund for gifted musicians. While her mother is more laid-back, Maxey sees herself as a “connector,” bringing together people and groups that can benefit each other. That, she says, is the best part of giving back, for it takes on a life of its own.

Crystal Clear

Nadja Swarovski has a strong grip on family life, work and pastimes, but a trip to Vero Beach always refreshes her mood and creates a clearer vision.

Make up: Frank Llana, Clarins

Nadja Swarovski relaxes on the patio of her family’s Vero Beach home, in jewelry by Mary Katrantzou from the Atelier Swarovski collection. Foreground: Marble Rocks by Arik Levy Opposite page: The decor consists of black and white and wildlife themes.

Here is the Old Florida people dream of—a fusion of citrus groves and palm trees with the ocean wind whispering through, dirt roads and wooden walkways leading into elegant yet old-fashioned bungalows with an eerie sense of peace and quiet. For some Florida residents, the dream is a reality called Windsor, a 400-plus acre community eight miles north of Vero Beach founded more than 20 years ago. Equally mesmerizing as the vast greensward are the homes expressed in Anglo-Caribbean architecture. Windsor is a juxtaposition of the city life, whether it’s New York or London, which hap-

pens to be the home base for Nadja Swarovski; her husband, Rupert Adams; and their three children, Rigby, 7; Thalia, 6; and Jasmine, 4. “My children are different people when we are at Windsor. Their energy is more profound. They are more outgoing,” says Nadja. “It seems like London makes them shy, and I often wonder what the pollution is doing to my children. In Vero Beach, they can run around, enjoy the fresh air and truly be kids.” Yes, Nadja is a Swarovski, of the world-famous Swarovski crystal empire, the same crystals that have sponsored Council of Fashion Designers of America | MARCH 2012 119


(CFDA) awards for the past decade and the same crystals that those sparkling accessories and cute little animals are made of. Her Austrian great-greatgrandfather Daniel founded the enterprise in 1895, and today the fifth generation operates the crystal company. Nadja serves as head of communications and is a member of the executive board. The family’s footing in Vero Beach isn’t as puzzling as it seems. Nadja’s maternal grandfather served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and joined an influx of retiring military members to Melbourne. Her parents, Helmut and Danna Swarovski, purchased a home at John’s Island in Vero Beach. At that time, Nadja was working for Eleanor Lambert, founder of the CFDA, and one of Lambert’s clients was Windsor. Lambert insisted Nadja’s parents meet Hilary and Galen Weston, the owners of Windsor, and the rest is history. Helmut and Danna hired local architect Clemens Bruns Schaub four years ago to build their Windsor abode. The two-story villa is airy with open spaces that all look toward the house’s focal point—an open-air courtyard that holds a pool, hot tub and shaded terrace. “Hot tubbing is my kids’ favorite activity,” adds Nadja. Upstairs are Nadja and sister’s wings. “The decoration is my mother but I contributed to the layout. I wanted to have a working station, which is next door to my bedroom. That’s one of the things of working in a family business—where does business stop and private life begin?” says Nadja. Nadja’s wing is decorated with her choice of art. In the bedroom is a Kaikai Kiki Flower Plush Ball by Takashi Murakami tucked behind an armchair to prevent her children from playing with it and Tai Ping blue carpet designed by Arik Levy. Don’t forget the twentyfirst century portraits of Jasmine at nine months taken by Adam Fuss. Downstairs, hints of the family business are blended into Danna’s decor, which consists of black and white and wildlife themes as well as Greek and Roman antiquities and Sing Dynasty artifacts. Crystal candlesticks adorn the wooden dining table in the living room, and Osmosis Crystal Lava, black

The home’s focal point is the open-air courtyard; Swarovski crystal pieces are throughout. Opposite page: Black dot paintings by David Escobar of Brazil | MARCH 2012 121

crystallized giant “rocks” designed by Levy, are positioned in front of the fire. Two long crystal curtains, used at the Academy Awards two years ago, frame the main door leading into the courtyard. “It’s wonderful to be here together as a family. I love my parents, but it’s not my house so that is a challenge. When I’m here, I’m the child, and their rules are different,” says Nadja. “When my kids run around and yell—in my opinion, that’s what kids do at ages 4, 6 and 7—my parents don’t have the tolerance for it anymore, so we tell the kids, ‘We are in the grandparents’ house; respect their rules.’” Despite being a Swarovski, the equivalent of a Rockefeller in Austria, Nadja has a deep sense of individualism. She continued her family legacy at the German boarding school Schule Schloss Salem, which she adored, but life seemed too easy for the young Swarovski. “Okay, perhaps in hindsight I would do things differently,” admits Nadja. “I thought I needed more of a challenge.” She transferred to a New England boarding school as a second-semester sophomore, and it was nothing like the prep school in the 1983 movie Class she’d watched. She was ridiculed for being Austrian and bullied for the country’s involvement in World War II, despite her being halfAmerican and her grandfather serving as a top gun in the U.S. Navy, taking out German submarines. Afterward, she attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, motivated by the company’s then-recent purchase of Zale Corp., whose headquarters was based in Dallas. An art professor became a beacon in Nadja’s life, encouraging her to delve deeper into the world of art history. She launched a career at Sotheby’s, then Gagosian Gallery and finally with Eleanor Lambert, all in New York, before bringing

her knowledge to the family company. Nadja’s main objective with the family business is to repurpose crystals as a medium used in jewelry and art. She launched two programs—Swarovski Crystal Palace, which challenges lighting designers to reinvent the chandelier to twenty-first century standards, such as Tord Boontje’s Blossom chandelier that hangs in the house, and Atelier Swarovski, which celebrates and collaborates with up-and-coming fashion

designers to create luxury crystal accessories. “What it really required was working with the world’s most incredible visionaries—Zaha Hadid, Arik Levy, Alexander McQueen,” says Nadja. “I give full credit to McQueen for reintroducing Swarovski into fashion because the minute he used our crystals, all the other fashion designers wanted to use crystals.” The programs stimulate the creative industry by increasing the aesthetics and | MARCH 2012 123

good designs within functional products, architecture, decorative objects such as chandeliers and certainly accessories. In a way, Nadja is furthering her Austrian grandfather’s vision—he worked with designers Coco Chanel, Christian Dior and the Hollywood crowd even though his generation was more about the crystal animals. One could say he helped shape the eccentric Liberace. After meeting on an airplane, Liberace was promised free crystals for life. “Liberace took him up on that offer. My grandfather gave him the crystal piano and cape,” says Nadja. “He took me to a Liberace concert in New York around 1985. It was an inspiration. I told him, ‘Opa, we can do even better.’ I just thought [what we were doing with crystals] was already amazing back then.” Nadja’s business sense doesn’t stop with designers, and this is where her life seems like a juggling act. There is a new cosmetic license with Clarins, the recent launch of fragrance Aura, a Hollywood collaboration, a film business, the creation of a foundation as well as improving the company’s corporate social responsibility, opening new offices in Tokyo, Dubai and New Delhi, and consolidating the entire 124 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

communications effort of Swarovski so that the company speaks with one voice. On short business trips, her children remain in London, in their home co-decorated to Nadja’s modern aesthetics and Rupert’s traditional taste. With the right support team—a nanny and a housekeeper who’ve become family— Nadja remains calm, cool and collected while away from her children. She says, “My children are peas in a pod, and that makes it easy to do my job; they have each other.” u

Nadja’s room features a photo of her daughter Jasmine by Adam Fuss, Kaikai Kiki Flower Plush Ball by Takashi Murakami and Tai Ping carpet by Arik Levy. Below: The courtyard features a pool, hot tub and shaded terrace.

Quick Study

Palm Beacher Tom Quick knows how to throw the ultimate party. By Liza Grant Smith | photography by JERRY RABINOWITZ


Hors d’oeuvres included raspberries with crispy brie on a port wine pipet and smoked salmon with a saffron potato chantilly on a crispy parsnip. Opposite page: Dinner tables are set on the loggia poolside. Centerpieces by Tom Mathieu adorn the tables. | MARCH 2012 127


Tom Quick in his traditionally appointed dining room, where he often entertains guests. Right: The loggia at dusk.

ntertaining, particularly in Palm Beach, is more art than science. Hosts employ their own preferred medium and style for the parties they throw. Some tend toward an oil painting approach, applying layer upon layer of detail, refinement and alteration to produce the event that guests will ultimately enjoy. Tom Quick’s entertaining style is more akin to watercolor. With seemingly effortless brush strokes, he is known for creating soirées full of beauty and a welcomed airiness often absent at more overworked affairs. Tonight is no exception. Quick has opened his home to 20 guests as part of the nineteenth annual Ultimate Dinner Party for the Children’s Home Society of Florida, a cause he’s supported for the past decade. Patrons of the event attended a cocktail party at the home of Michele and Howard Kessler before dividing up into smaller groups to enjoy gourmet meals prepared by chefs in some of Palm Beach’s most gorgeous homes. If Quick is feeling any competitiveness from 128 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

being one of several hosts for the evening, he doesn’t show it. This is hardly surprising, given his mastery in entertaining. “It basically goes back to when I was president of Quick & Reilly in New York,” he says. “Our family entertained employees and clients throughout the year and all over

the country, anything from 12 to 1,000 people. It comes sort of second nature to me.” Quick has spent the bulk of this day in the office. He is so confident in the execution of details that it is 5:30 p.m. before he first walks in the door. Far from flustered, he appreciatively assesses the decorated surroundings, thanks to friend and event planner Tom Mathieu, and advises the waiters what wines from his personal collection should be used to supplement those provided for the event. It is this relaxed demeanor he carries with him to the party

that is quickly adopted by the guests in attendance. To be fair, Quick does have some powerful tools in his arsenal when it comes to hosting events. The first is the stunning built-in setting provided by his Palm Beach home. For tonight’s party, Quick has tables set on the loggia to create an intimate atmosphere while allowing guests prime viewing of the pool and tropically landscaped backyard. Yellow and white floral centerpieces of Mathieu’s creation adorn the tables but

take a bit of a backseat to the stunning array of tableware Quick has selected for the evening. “I think people come to appreciate nice things,” he says. Quick has brought out some of his favorite pieces, including hand-painted Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica plates. Quick’s fish plates are exquisite and more unique than the botanical images the luxurious porcelain collection is known for. Continuing in the wildlife vein, places are set with Tiffany & Co. Audubon flatware. Each piece | MARCH 2012 129

HOSTING HINTS Tom Quick shares his soiree strategies. Use the surroundings to establish the tone. Quick varies the setting of his events between the dining room, loggia and pool area based on the mood he’s trying to create. Develop a list of trusted resources. Quick has established relationships with everyone from his event planner and chosen caterer to the waiters he uses. His history with them means they have knowledge of the venue as well as his preferences and tastes. This makes outsourcing responsibilities much less stressful and more effective. His favorite go-to people: Tom Mathieu, event planner and florist (561-833-2179) and Charlie Crawford, The White Apron Catering (561-585-2985). Insert your personality. Whenever possible, Quick uses his own pieces. It’s an easy way to individualize the event and showcase his style. Don’t be too quick to adopt perceived trends. Forget dainty bites. “I think people still love comfort foods,” Quick asserts. Relax. Your guests will, too.

To finish, guests will be sipping from William Yeoward crystal goblets with a hand-cut palm tree design. The true guest of honor of this evening’s affair, however, is the food. This is the one area in which Quick has had no involvement. However, after nine years of hosting this annual event, he has nothing but confidence in the culinary offerings that await him. Chefs from

the Palm Beach County chapter of the American Culinary Federation, with assistance from Lincoln Culinary Institute students, team up to create their version of the “ultimate” dinner. Quick’s chefs include Mitchell Pagan, executive sous chef at Mariner Sands Country Club; pastry chef Cassandra Appleman; and Roderick Smith, founder of Farms to Chefs and executive chef at Little Harbor Club in Michigan during the summers. Each chef is responsible for creating one part of the meal but also collaborating with one another to ensure a fluid progression. The result is a menu abundant in layers of flavors, innovative techniques and salivation-worthy offerings. Guests begin their culinary journey | MARCH 2012 131

The salad features Wellington Farms lettuces, with heirloom tomatoes, pistachio-encrusted goat cheese and an Anjou pear compote dressed with essence of Ramos Port-balsamic reduction and fennel pollen. The visually enticing entrée for the evening is a duo of olive oil poached Florida lobster tail medallions and herb-crusted roast tenderloin, served with wild mushroom ragout and a variety of seasonally prime vegetable offerings. For those who have somehow managed to save room for dessert, Chef Appleman has created what she deems chocolate and caramel decadence. Layers of bisquit chocolat, caramel fleur de sel and crème brûlée are layered with chocolate mousse and garnished with chocolate and macaroons. For Quick, the creator of the evening, the party represented yet another masterpiece in his portfolio of work. But it’s much more than that. The proceeds from the evening will benefit CHS’s programs for at-risk young people. And that is always in good taste. u

The Ultimate Dinner Party was the inspiration behind Palm Beach Entertaining, a coffeetable book showcasing parties and recipes by some of Palm Beach’s most illustrious hosts. Released September 2012 by Rizzoli, book proceeds will benefit the Children’s Home Society of Florida. | MARCH 2012 133


In the 1950s, Palm Beach parties were all about color, sleek glamour and even a little bit of kitsch. Five designers recreate the vibe. photography by JERRY RABINOWITZ

CLASSICCORNER Patrick Killian | Patrick Killian Inc. This 1950s-inspired vignette began with a roll of vintage wallpaper—sitting in a storage room for years—that Killian fabricated into a folding screen. Pairing it with a small writing table of his own design, inspired by a ’50s French Moderne piece, created a bold color scheme to build on—turquoise and cherry red, two emblematic colors of the 1950s. Modern flatware and crystal blend perfectly with the Harvey Probber chairs, a faux bamboo lamp, dinnerware, a sculptural plaque and other objects from the period. The finishing touches—caviar, cigarettes and petit fours—reinforce the idea that life in the ’50s really was a bowl of cherries.

The theme for this table was “breakfast with Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wrightsman,” and Foster hoped to invoke the social couple’s beautiful house—one of the truly great houses of Palm Beach, built by Maurice Fatio and decorated by Henri Samuel and Jansen. Faux bamboo chairs and the beautiful pale blue embroidered tablecloth from Noel in Paris set the scene, while the Luneville china—which the Wrightsmans did actually have—was (and is) de rigueur in Palm Beach life and provides a wonderfully colorful canvas for the fruit.

BLUEHAWAII Chad Renfro | Chad Renfro Design The 1950s calls to mind America’s fascination with and exploration of Hawaii, our fiftieth state, which was welcomed to the Union in 1959. To honor that, Renfro created an island-themed table, complete with tiki torches and umbrella drinks.

A Stylish Tribute Local designers and tastemakers create custom items in celebration of PBI’s sixtieth. PAPER GREETINGS


Jason Arbuckle of West Palm Beach stationer J. Falkner surprised us with a trio of adorable cards inscribed with anniversary wishes. All three are in the classic Palm Beach pink-and-lime-green motif with fun imagery like flamingos and sunglasses.

Palm Beacher Sasha Lickle gathered her inspiration from the sea, as she does for all her jewelry. She began with “a few of the things that drew people to this beautiful island in the first place”—seashells, sand dollars, starfish and seahorses found on our shores. She dipped everything in 24-karat gold to make a fun charm necklace.

AND NOW, A TOAST Ever since its inception in 1989, the Leopard Lounge at the Chesterfield Hotel has been a classic Palm Beach hangout—as much for its spot-on cocktails as for the people watching. The bar crew at the Leopard has come up with a new classic, the Leopard’s Tale, inspired by the countless tales overheard over 23 years of history. Cheers to that.

The Leopard’s Tale

A LITTLE SOFT SHOE Del Toro Shoes, founded by Palm Beachers Nathanial Wish, James Bohannon and Matthew Chevallard, has been getting a lot of attention lately, and this slipper, made especially for PBI’s anniversary, demonstrates why. Acid-washed pink canvas gives a modern edge to a traditional design. That carefully balanced mix of classic and contemporary is a signature of Del Toro—and of Palm Beach Illustrated, as well.


1.5 ounces white rum ½ ounce amaretto 2.5 ounces orange juice 1 ounce pineapple juice Squeeze of lime ½ ounce cream Dash of grenadine Pour grenadine into bottom of tall glass (hurricane or pilsner). Place remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into glass. Garnish with a tuile (optional) and slice of orange.

IT’S A CHARM To commemorate a special anniversary, Jordann Weingartner looked to the place where it all began. Palm Beach is celebrated in her “Palm Beach Island” necklace and silk-cord bracelets, featuring a round pendant with a cutout in the shape of the island, designed as a tribute to Palm Beach Illustrated. Simply charming.

“I loved the idea that the magazine was turning 60; I thought you were just young kids,” says Palm Beach designer Alfred Fiandaca, who created this aqua taffeta confection with a draped skirt and bodice and a sweeping two-toned train. He handpainted the number 60 in gold for a little extra dazzle. “I thought it should be young, flirtatious and fun,” he says, “just like the magazine.”



This custom-designed shade by island beauty doyenne Deborah Koepper equally captures the modness of the 1950s and the iconic shade of Palm Beach in celebration of PBI’s sixtieth. Koepper aptly calls her creation “DK Pink.”

OCEAN’S FINEST Joanna Schmidt, owner of Jupiter-based Product Body, has crafted a custom bar of soap with all-local ingredients: water collected from the ocean off the Palm Beach coast, coconut milk, banana and mango extracts, and an array of exotic oils. She calls the scent “a light breeze with hints of ripe cantaloupe and succulent lily petals caressing an untamed shoreline.” If you look closely, you’ll even see a bit of bling on top—so Palm Beach.

SWEET SUCCESS In 1952, when the magazine launched, the Jell-O mold dessert reigned supreme. Jennifer Reed, aka The Sugar Monkey, crafted a modern version of the vintage treat in honor of PBI: pink grapefruitMoscato gelée with tropical fruits and a bit of gold dust. | MARCH 2012 141

The classics The cocktail culture renaissance recalls the heyday of the 1950s. By Mark Spivak

In 1952, when this magazine was launched, the cocktail culture was experiencing a Golden Age. America was riding a wave of postwar prosperity, and wine consumption was virtually nonexistent. Prohibition had finally erased the gender barriers around consuming alcohol in public, and both sexes were enjoying cocktails publicly as well as privately. As it happens, we know exactly what people were drinking back then. In 1951, Local 15 of the New York Bartenders Union conducted a survey on the most popular libations, and the results were tabulated from responses submitted by bartenders across the United States and Canada. The No. 1 cocktail of the era was the Manhattan, followed by the martini and the daiquiri; rounding out the top 10 were the whiskey sour, old-fashioned, Tom Collins, Bacardi cocktail, Cuba libre, brandy Alexander and stinger. 154 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

The pattern of where these drinks were consumed was very different than the present day. In major cities, chic and elaborate cocktail lounges dominated the nation’s social life. People drank in restaurants, of course, but the number of dining options was limited 60 years ago. Then as now, Palm Beach was not particularly known for its nightlife, and most of the entertaining occurred in luxurious private homes. “Back in 1951, people came down to Palm Beach from the Northeast and brought their drink preferences with them, just as they do today,” says Charles Steadman, mixologist at Echo in Palm Beach. “There was no air conditioning, so the emphasis was on refreshing drinks that could be consumed in the heat. Many cocktails were served in silver or pewter cups to keep them cold.” While the Manhattan may have been the favorite of displaced New Yorkers, Steadman believes that “the

palate v pour classic gin martini has a historical and nostalgic connection to Palm Beach.” He also cites the Southside cocktail as extremely popular; containing gin, simple syrup, fresh lime juice, soda and mint, it was more or less a gin mojito. Also in vogue were the gin rickey and the brandy crusta (brandy, lemon juice, Angostura bitters, gum syrup and maraschino liqueur). Ta-boó opened in Palm Beach in 1941, and quickly gained a reputation as a watering hole for the rich and famous. Legend has it that the Bloody Mary was invented at the bar one morning as a hangover remedy for Barbara Hutton—a good story, but probably untrue, because actor George Jessel and bartender Fernand Petiot also claimed to have originated it, in 1939 and 1921, respectively. Current Ta-Boó bartender Cindy Mariacher cites the Champagne cocktail, rusty nail and Singapore sling as being emblematic

of the period. She also believes that cream drinks such as the grasshopper and brandy Alexander were extremely popular (remember that people were less concerned about calories in the ’50s than they are today). Another favorite of the period was the zombie, a cocktail first concocted at Hollywood’s Don the Beachcomber restaurant in the late 1930s and popularized at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Composed of brandy, fruit juice and three different kinds of rum, it came with a limit of two per customer. Reading through the ingredients and recipes for these classic cocktails, we tend to marvel at how intricate they were to compose. As we go through the current renaissance of the cocktail culture, though, today’s bartenders are constructing drinks every bit as interesting and complex. There’s little doubt that that they will be the classic cocktails of the future. u

Island Favorite Almost as old as Palm Beach itself, Testa’s is serving up comfort food at its best.



Shrimp Pomodoro is one of Testa’s popular Southern Italian dishes.


The Testa family arrived in Palm Beach in 1921, 10 years after the town was founded, and opened a small soda fountain. They survived the hurricane of 1928, the Great Depression and World War II, and moved into their present location on Royal Poinciana Way in 1947. In the midst of their ninetieth season, they operate the oldest restaurant on the island. Once past the spacious outdoor terrace, the interior is decorated with paddle fans and original woodwork. A long wooden bar occupies one side of the dining room, and most of the remaining space is taken up by booths that resemble church pews. Ferns and planters add warmth to the decor, and the walls are festooned with vintage pictures of sunbathers luxuriating in the Gilded Age. Additional seating is available in Via Testa, the courtyard that adjoins the restaurant. Don’t expect to find the latest culinary trends at Testa’s. Instead, regulars come here for hefty portions of Southern Italian cuisine, occasionally rendered in such a way as to remind us why this style of cooking was once considered an art form. The menu is large, almost encyclopedic, offering a collection of dishes that qualify as Italian comfort food. Whatever you do, begin with a bowl of the wonderful cream of crab soup ($7.95). Rich and creamy, packed with flakes of crab and tasting of an intense seafood stock, it is redolent with the nutty flavor of sherry and a hint of black pepper. Eggplant Testa’s ($9.95) arrives in a small casserole, containing paper-thin slices of eggplant somewhat overwhelmed by mozzarella and ricotta cheese—satisfying, if not inspiring. The roll call of entrées includes steaks, chops and various renditions of veal, as well as a battery of fresh seafood dishes, but something about Testa’s makes you crave a bowl of noodles. The Tuscan pasta ($24.95) consists of linguine combined with sweet sausage, shrimp and fresh spinach in a sauce of white wine, olive oil, garlic and a chicken

palate v taste demiglace; the pleasantly earthy taste of the sausage infuses the dish, and the addition of cannellini beans thickens the sauce nicely. Shrimp Pomodoro ($23.95), recommended by our server, features perfectly sauteed jumbo shrimp over angel hair in a small ocean of tomato sauce—creamy and tart, studded with fresh tomato and just the right amount of garlic. If you’re going to have one dessert at Testa’s, indulge in the legendary strawberry pie ($7.25). It is simplicity itself: Fresh, whole strawberries are placed on a short and crisp pie crust, napped with a strawberry glaze and topped with real whipped cream. Further doses of calories and nostalgia can be had by ordering the coconut cake or root beer float. The wine list is short and basic—perhaps 30 selections, with an emphasis on commercial labels. Most are available by the glass, and the Bertani Pinot Grigio ($10.95/$37.95) provided enough acidity and body to stand up to the dishes we ordered. Service is provided by cheerful young ladies in black outfits, who do a nice job of calibrating themselves to the needs of their clientele. They can be chatty when required or keep their distance if the situation demands it. Inevitably, at the end of the meal, you find yourself wondering where people will be 60 or 90 years from now. If some of them aren’t at Testa’s, it simply won’t be Palm Beach. u

zach’s back Since leaving Café Boulud last summer after nearly 13 years as the chef de cuisine, Zach Bell has joined the Addison Reserve Country Club as executive chef. Addison’s clubhouse recently underwent an $18-million expansion project and renovation, including the addition of new restaurants, all of which Bell will oversee. These restaurants include: Trattoria, an upscale Italian restaurant that will take the place of the Grill Room and Bar; Taste, a seafood and chophouse, which will serve as the club’s flagship restaurant; a new gourmet wine room, Vault, for private dining; and Styr, which will be a sports bar by day and an intimate tapas lounge at night.

The Beauty of Bacon It has been said, “Everything is better with bacon.” They are really taking that to heart at West Palm Beach gastro pub Gratify. Executive Chef Fritz Cassel believes it so much he’s actually making his own bacon in house. Cassel uses his own blend of spices, which he developed through experimentation, to cure pork belly for five days before smoking it with wood chips. Then the fun begins as he creates dishes that are particularly delicious with bacon. The bacon with Brussels sprouts will make you want to eat your vegetables, with house-made bacon aioli tossed with the pan-fried-then-roasted veggies, and garnished with bits of bacon and some crispy fried Brussels sprout leaves. The Florida rock shrimp and grits comes with a corn salsa and, of course, bits of bacon. There even is a bacon dessert, but don’t miss the red velvet zucchini cupcakes if they are available. Starting with fresh, quality ingredients is key to creating delicious dishes, and Cassel uses as many housemade ingredients as possible—like the ricotta cheese that tops a burger made of Gratify’s own special meat blend—to create interesting versions of comfort food. The menu is constantly evolving, depending on available ingredients and Cassel’s mood. For those who are not into bacon, or even meat for that matter, the heart of palm cakes are a must. Owner Gene Playter says a vegetarian customer stopped him, worried he had been served actual crab cakes by mistake. The heart of palm version is so good it’s hard to tell the difference.

To achieve an ultra-contemporary decor, Lichi-Zelman Style Interiors integrated complex lighting schemes, decorative wall and ceiling treatments and high-luster materials that play out against silver and white Venetian plaster walls and mirrored white-tile flooring.

culture v Lightpainter While more traditional painters may prefer working with oil, Stephen Knapp is contributing to the art world in a big way for his invention of a new medium he calls lightpainting. Knapp begins by mounting on a wall or panel pieces of glass filters that act like prisms. The pieces are precisely arranged so that when a halogen light shines on them, they create the brilliant colors and lines the artist intended. “Most of us are looking for that quiet place in our lives to go sometimes when all the noise around us stops,” Knapp says. “Although these are bright and colorful, what I give people is a place to go to and dream and imagine for a little bit.” Inner Vision, shown, “is autobiographical but talking about the fact that we have incredible colors and feelings,” Knapp says. “There’s a layer of depth inside that you know is there but don’t see it.” Although the installations look dazzling in the dark, they’re just as captivating in a sunlit room. “These aren’t meant to be in dark caves. They’re meant to be lived with,” the artist says. Five of Knapp’s lightpaintings, including Inner Vision, will be on display at the Vero Beach Museum of Art through June 3. He also has a 64-foot-wide lightpainting permanently installed in the Riverside Theatre. —Jennifer Pfaff | MARCH 2012 219

SEDAKA: Receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Having a street named after me in Brooklyn. Reaching No. 1 of the U.S. charts three times, thus solidifying my part of the history of American rock ’n roll. n Which one of your songs are you proudest of and why? “Laughter in the Rain.” It was responsible for my remarkable contract thanks to Sir Elton John’s help and his belief in me as a contemporary artist. n What would you consider your personal successes? My family. I’ve been happily married for 49 years and blessed with two wonderful children and three precious grandchildren. n What’s on your iPod? Evgeny Kissin. Adele.

10 obsessions 9


1 Fashionable, flamboyant and fabulous Carson Kressley burst onto the scene as a star of Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Since then, he has launched his own fashion collection for QVC, Perfect by Carson Kressley, and has written Off the Cuff, a style guide for men, and the children’s book You’re Different and That’s Super. Kressley also is an accomplished equestrian and philanthropist. He will be the guest speaker at the Center for Family Services’ popular Old Bags luncheon, which will be held March 8 at The Breakers, Palm Beach. 2

Go-to hostess gift: Votivo candles. Everyone loves them. Travel spot to keep returning to: South Beach. I love the eclectic vibe of old-school art deco architecture, fun people from all over the world and great hotels, clubs and restaurants. And you can’t beat the sun and surf.


Favorite accessory for spring: Color! It could be colorful cotton socks for men (Marc Jacobs makes really fun ones) or a lightweight linen scarf for the ladies in hot pink, purple, lime green or coral. They can dress up a white T-shirt and jeans so easily.

Most recent coveted purchase: Tom Ford sunglasses

favorite Pastime: Competing with my American Saddlebred show horses


Favorite designer: I adore Ralph Lauren. I worked for him for many years before I started my TV career. His designs, whether for ladies, gents, kids or the home, are always in perfect taste, are beautifully made and last a lifetime.

Hot spot in Palm Beach: Palm Beach Polo on a Sunday afternoon; it’s glam and there is great people-watching. It’s hard to beat watching a match with friends in the clubhouse while sipping some Veuve.

Must-have travel product: I always bring tons of magazines, an iPod loaded with great tunes, my Emergen-C, facial moisturizer, orange-scented disinfecting wipes, organic peanut butter cups and a small Ralph Lauren cashmere travel blanket and eye mask. All that together makes me invincible. Must-have item for entertaining at home: I make almost everything in my Le Creuset Dutch oven. In winter, coq au vin, and summer, steamed clams. Music to dance to: Vintage Blondie
