IN SUMMER’S GROOVE
GIOVANNI DISTADIO, EVE BERES
LILA PHOT O
There is a misconception that, in the summer, Florida is too hot, humid, and rainy for comfort. But as thousands of visitors from Europe, South America, and elsewhere know, summer is an ideal time to be here. The crowds have thinned, and hotels and restaurants are offering enticing specials. As for the heat, it makes that plunge in the pool or ocean all the more satisfying—don’t you think? Because we love Florida in the summer, we offer our annual “Road Trip!” feature exploring destinations around the Sunshine State and other drive-market regions. Now in its third year, “Road Trip!” has become something our readers look forward to and use as a practical guide for their own summer plans. It covers some of the most intriguing destinations within driving distance, including a private island that offers the ultimate family getaway, exclusive Disney experiences not everyone knows about, and the legendary Relais & Châteaux “Routes du Bonheur” in the American South. There is truly something for everyone in this 12-page package, which begins on page 42. Summer also is a time for light, bright foods. We’ve asked five chefs to craft elevated vegetarian dishes as a celebration of the summer harvest and healthful eating. The results are so appetizing and visually appealing that it’s hard to dispute “The Art of the Vegetable.” Turn to page 54 for the mouthwatering ode to plant-based cuisine. On a bittersweet note, “The Art of the Vegetable” was inspired by and is dedicated to our favorite vegan, Randie Dalia. Randie, who was instrumental in building Palm Beach Media Group over her 18 years of employment here, passed away in May. To say we miss her is an understatement. Randie had one of those larger-than-life personalities that had such an impact on those around her. Whether she was mentoring another woman, cooking a wholesome meal for those in need, or simply brightening a moment with her infectious laugh, she touched lives in innumerable ways. I will always remember her as a brilliant light, an unconditionally devoted friend, and an inspiration to always strive for something higher. This summer, remember it’s not the destination but the journey that will forge the most indelible memories. Enjoy it, wherever it takes you.
Turn up the heat this summer with #LMCFashBash, Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s outrageous fashion showcase. Dress to impress and join the chic crowd on August 25 at The Gardens Mall. 10

THE FINE ARTS CONSERVANCY
Insider ART RESTART Within the global art community, Palm Beachers are renowned as world-class creators and even better purchasers. But they’re also carving a niche in the field of restoration, and the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery is leading the charge. Established in 2006, the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery is a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding the restoration of works at Florence’s Uffizi Gallery. Millions of visitors travel to the Uffizi every year to view its collection of Renaissance masterpieces, which began with a contribution from the famous Medici family in the mid-1700s. “The works there are not for Italians, and they’re not for the city of Florence; they’re truly for any art lover in the whole world,” says Lisa Marie Browne, executive director of the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery. “Some people [think] it’s frivolous to spend money on restoration, but when they think about their grandchildren being able to see the same works they’re able to see and their grandchildren’s grandchildren, [they real
ize] it really is a very important mission.” The Friends of the Uffizi Gallery has so far funded more than 45 restoration projects, including the creation of the Michelangelo Room, done in partnership with its Italian sister organization, Amici degli Uffizi. The group is now working on a large-scale effort to restore the Valois Tapestries, a collection of eight tapestries given by Catherine de’ Medici (queen of France from 1547-1559) to

her granddaughter upon her marriage. Restoring these tapestries, which feature ornate scenes realized in silver and silver-gilt thread, is a long process. Ideally, Brown hopes the tapestries will be completed by 2020, and she plans to bring a group to Florence to view them in all their splendor. “I’ve never liked tapestries until I saw this,” says Gordon Lewis, an advisory board member of the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery. “It is totally unique in the history of art, tapestries, and Renaissance studies.” Lewis knows what he’s talking about. Together with his wife, Laney, he runs The Fine Arts Conservancy, an art restoration and conservation center based in West Palm Beach. The Lewises are consulting on the Valois Tapestries, although the actual restoration will be done by a conservator at the Uffizi.

As varied as the requests are, each project begins with an examination to determine the necessary work and the means of restoration. “This is a problem-solving business,” Laney says. “There’s a lot of analysis and discussion that goes with it.” The Fine Arts Conservancy has the tools worthy of the masterpieces and treasured objects it restores. Some of the most frequently used evaluation methods include x-rays, ultraviolet photography, and chemical analysis. The conservancy also uses items like an electronic imaging microscopy machine that allows conservators to magnify a piece as they work on it. All of these elements work in concert to allow the Lewises and their team to restore a piece to its original state, one that is reflective of the artist’s intent. “We are actually the spokesmen for artists,” Laney says. Gordon agrees, adding: “One of the things that’s incredibly important in restoration is to keep the final product in the same milieu as other pieces of that time. You don’t want people to look at it and say, ‘Oh, it’s been restored.’” (561684-6133, art-conservation.org); (561-289-4090, friendsoftheuffizigallery.org)

THE FINE ARTS CONSERVANCY
Few things are as ubiquitous as sunglasses in South Florida. Now, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County is turning a humble pair of aqua sunglasses into a symbol of arts in the Palm Beaches with its new marketing initiative, Shades of Culture. Launched in April, this national campaign features internationally recognized performers (like Broadway legend Ben Vereen, comedienne Judy Gold, and television star John O’Hurley) sporting the shades and sharing insight into what the arts mean to them as well as just what makes Palm Beach County’s cultural scene so special. Local celebrities, artists, performers, and organizations are also getting involved—Palm Beach Illustrated polo team captain Jared Zenni even rocked a pair of the sunglasses. The council wants locals and visitors to participate in this cultural call to arms by sharing their arts experiences on social media with the hashtag #ShadesOfCulture. The future of the arts in the Palm Beaches has never looked so bright. (shadesofculture.com)

Although Neil Cavuto looks forward to sporadic getaways to his Singer Island condo, this lifelong news junkie is more at home in the fastpaced world of broadcast journalism. He specializes in economic coverage and currently serves as an anchor for the Fox Business Network. TV viewers know him best as the straight-talking host of such shows as Cavuto: Coast to Coast on Fox Business as well as Your World and Cavuto on Business on the Fox News Channel, but he got his start as an intern in the Carter administration. “I would be forever pinching myself working then at the Old Executive Office Building or in the West Wing,” Cavuto says. “I never got over the sense of awe being a witness—albeit a very distant, ineffectual witness—to power.” This experience sparked Cavuto's love of Washington, D.C. and put him on his career path. And though he’s always been comfortable discussing highfalutin economic policies, he found it difficult to adjust to being an anchor for live television. “My friends used to say I looked like I was doing a hostage tape when I started out,” he says. “Eventually, I got it quasi down. … I would just work very hard, but I would relish being the hardworking nerd I was and hope that people would be similarly intrigued.” Nowadays, his life is pretty predictable: He rises before 4 a.m. and reads the news as he travels to Neil Cavuto his New York City offices to prepare for his three hours of daily broadcasting. This political season, however, has been anything but predictable. The 2016 presidential race hits a milestone in July, when both party conventions will take place. But Cavuto has been an intricate part of the Republican race for almost a year, serving as moderator for two Fox Business Network debates. His moderating approach has been a demure one, stemming from the belief that journalists can be gatekeepers to the story but not the story themselves. “As big a guy as I am, I try to be invisible,” he says. “If you ask a good question, the answer will keep the issue percolating.”

Revel in the days of yore at the ultra-luxurious “Great Camp” retreat, The Point By Paul Rubio Flash back to the late-nineteenth century, to the height of the Gilded Age, when prominent families like the Vanderbilts, the Astors, the Carnegies, and the Rockefellers were shaping a young United States of America through business, society, and politics. Beyond the hubbub of New York City and the rapid industrialization of the Northeast, the expansive, towering forests and emerald lakes of the Adirondack Mountains promised natural splendor, pure air, and serenity—the ideal locale for escaping city grime in favor of rural simplicity. Wealthy industrialists eagerly developed estates—affectionately referred to as “camps”—along the Adirondacks’ lakeshores, erecting craftsman-style log mansions, cabins, and boathouses sculpted from native materials and often etched in iconic twig work. Inside,
Take in many wondrous views of Upper Saranac Lake at The Point.

Guests can find solace at The Point’s boathouse, chat with friends on the dock, and enjoy libations in the Great Hall.
they filled these rustic retreats with the riches from the (then) modern world like plush mattresses, ornate chandeliers, fine china, artwork, taxidermy, lavish refrigerators, and copious staff. As this blue-blood real estate trend ignited, the “Great Camp” era commenced, presenting the first harbingers of American “glamping.” During this time, William Avery Rockefeller built one of the Adirondacks’ foremost camps along the craggy shoreline of Upper Saranac Lake as a personal summer retreat for his influential family and inner circle. Now, more than a hundred years later, this retreat has been transformed into The Point, an intimate, five-star resort that mingles history, nature, and luxury. Little has changed at The Point since Rockefeller’s day, and that’s a good thing. The compound’s four log buildings maintain their original rustic grandeur and house just 11 guest rooms. Interiors are replete with period furnishings The Mohawk Room (think: antique writing desks, chaise lounges, and roaring stone fireplaces) and peppered with veritable Rockefeller relics (though the mammoth designer bathtubs are definitely a more recent addition). Guests are treated to the ultimate in pampering and service as The Point recreates the hospitality experience and utter romance of a time gone by. No request is too great, no whim too fanciful. All that’s required of the guest is 36

to relinquish ties to city life (say goodbye to cell service and WiFi) and embrace the notion of indulgent escapism—the all-inclusive, adultsonly policy will help. An endless pour of superb Champagne or fine wine waits at every turn—on arrival, in-room, at the wooden bars strewn across the property, and even at nooks such as Camp David, a tiny cabin for respites while exploring The Point’s extensive network of nature trails. Meals are designed as hours-long leisurely events for enjoying excellent food, stimulating conversation, and the magnificent surrounds. Expect extravagant lakeside barbecue lunches—two-dozen gourmet selections isn’t uncommon—and elaborate, formal, multicourse dinners in the tradition of the Rockefellers. Arrive with a bit of haute couture in tow. Guests are expected to dress to the nines nightly, especially on Wednesday and Saturday evenings, when black tie is requested. Be`fore dinner, anticipate a sunset cruise on the resort’s vintage wooden boat or cocktails in the Great Hall, schmoozing with fellow guests and photographing these timeless moments. By day, The Point’s forested lakeside grounds are a wonderland for active pursuits, from waterskiing and hiking in summer to snowshoeing and ice-skating in winter. But like the jet set of the late-nineteenth century, today’s Point guests are less likely
to complete a rugged five-hour hiking trail than a 20-minute one ending in Champagne and a picnic lunch. In this vein, The Point’s boathouse carries an equal number of mahogany electric inboards and canoes so guests can explore Upper Saranac Lake as they choose. Likewise, staff is happy to organize afternoons of croquet, badminton, tennis, or horseback riding. You can always opt for simplicity and create memories from the comfort of a hammock under the forest canopy. In a time when luxury travel has become all too polished, contemporary, and predictable, The Point looks to the past to create one of today’s most experiential resorts. You can be sure William Avery Rockefeller would approve. (800-2553530, thepointsaranac.com) «

Volvo’s new XC90 T6 can almost drive itself, but it might also drive you to distraction
By Howard Walker
40 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED
Here’s a sobering factoid to contemplate while you’re risking life, limb, and sanity negotiating the commuter chaos that is I-95: In 2014, more than 32,000 Americans lost their lives in car wrecks. That’s around 90 every day. Or the occupants of roughly 64 Boeing 747 jumbo jets. Before you hang up your car keys, consider this equally illuminating aspiration from the safety gurus at Volvo: They promise, hand on heart, that by 2020—a mere four years away—no one will be killed or seriously injured in one of their cars or SUVs. That doesn’t include a driver croaking from cardiac arrest after scarfing down a third box of Krispy Kreme snickerdoodle doughnuts or the distracted dunce who flies off a cliff Thelma & Louise–style while composing that oh-so-vital text. But zero deaths in a Volvo come 2020 is an impressive goal and one that deserves applause. It’s all part of the rush to create autonomous or self-piloting cars, for which Volvo is leading the charge. The reasoning is if the car does the braking, the avoiding, and the steering—rather than the texting/speeding/distracted humanoid behind the wheel—accidents will become a thing of the past. These thoughts and many more were filling my gray matter as I slid behind the wheel of the new version of Volvo’s much-loved XC90 sport-ute. This is one handsome trucklette, especially the top-of-the-line $67,000 R-Design version I tested with its Bursting Blue metallic paint, black mesh grille, Jay Leno–sized chin spoiler, and bigger-than-big 22-inch alloys. Counter to the current designer craze of trying to make SUVs look like swoopy-roofed sports coupes, this new XC90 is reassuringly tall and boxy with a squared-off rump perfectly suited to swallowing that 42-inch flat screen you just picked up at Best Buy.

WARM GOR GON SALAD AT ZOLA STEAK LATITUDE S
Sunset Key/Key West, Florida
There’s something about white picket fences and clapboard cottages that makes us nostalgic for a time when children’s laughter rang in the streets and locking the front door was unnecessary. Those wholesome neighborhoods seem to have gone the way of the leisure suit, but not in Sunset Key. The tiny private island off Key West marries the idyllic, family-centric lifestyle of a bygone era with all the little luxuries of modern island living. (sunsetkeycottages.com)
G INTO SAILIN NSET THE SU
WHY GO: Key West is fun on many levels, but some-
times it’s good to step away from the southernmost island’s colorful, boisterous streets and retire to a gentler place— particularly when traveling with small children. Sunset Key is a seven-minute boat ride from Key West, but it’s a whole other world. Think pastel-colored cottages with lap siding and metal roofs, thatch umbrellas on private beaches, and ice cream carts rolling down cobbled streets. For families, it is heaven. And the fact that it was named Travel + Leisure magazine’s No. 1 U.S. resort last year doesn’t hurt, either.
PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED
FAMILY RETREAT: Sunset Key cottages, which come with one to four
bedrooms, are akin to private beach houses with full kitchens, living and dining areas, wide porches, and seaside-luxe appointments. The four-bedroom has its own
Sunset Key is an idyllic destination for families. Children love swimming and fishing, while adults appreciate the spa, island cuisine, and rum cocktails.
pool and picket fence-enclosed garden. A wonderful amenity with all cottages is the daily breakfast basket service. Hampers full of pastries, fruit, yogurt, and juices are delivered to your front porch so you can laze on the veranda and admire the morning light while the kids play by the surf. Kids also will adore the new Conch Cruiser ice cream cycle. Because no motor vehicles are allowed on the island, frozen treats are peddled by pedal. Every day at 3 p.m., the familiar bell rings, calling children to the icicle bicycle like a siren song. The treats are complimentary, and the scene is straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting.
WINING AND DINING: The beachfront Latitudes is probably the
best restaurant in the Lower Keys, and we don’t proclaim that lightly. Part of it is the elevated tropical cuisine, which changes with the seasons and always incorporates locally caught fish and fruit from the backyard tree. Don’t pass up the saffron-crusted black grouper, a gift from local waters. Every meal is better by the water, and Latitudes has that island vibe in spades. The tables are perched on the sand beneath the shade of palm trees so close to the water you can hear the surf’s ebb and flow. And the reason you come to Sunset Key in the first place—the sunset—is fierier here than anywhere else. Prepare to be mesmerized in the best possible way. To pave the way to the enchanted evening, Latitudes offers a daily rum call. Every afternoon at 4:30, the faithful gather at the outdoor bar to sample locally distilled rum or enjoy the rum cocktail of the day.
WHAT TO DO: If lounging on a white sliver of beach isn’t enough stim-
ulation, grab a fishing rod and some bait from the concierge and hit the docks. Chances are you’ll snag a few yellowtail and mangrove snappers. If you’re lucky, a barracuda will come along and shake things up. Sunset Key has a small but effective spa, where you can partake of treatments like the Salts of the Earth scrub. The minerals—84 of them—come from the Dead Sea, the Himalayas, the Utah desert, and the Bolivian coast and work wonders on tired, parched skin. Off-island, we recommend a behind-the-scenes tour of the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West (melfisher.org). The museum itself is well known for its artifacts from Spanish galleon shipwrecks, but its conservation facility is a hidden gem. The lab tour reveals the treatment and conservation of 100,000plus archaeological treasures. Other Key West landmarks worth visiting: the Key West Historic Memorial Sculpture Garden (keywestsculpturegarden.org) with statues of Cuban leaders who influenced the Conch Republic’s history, and the Custom House built in 1891 using 917,000 bricks and now housing the Key West Museum of Art and History (kwahs.org/visit/custom-house). —Daphne Nikolopoulos

SUPER FOO AT THE D SALAD LOCAL
A wellness lifestyle is even more attractive when ensconced in the beautiful surroundings of Naples. From the broad beaches of the Gulf of Mexico to wooded trails for running and cycling, Palm Beach’s west-coast sister beckons to yogis, fitness buffs, and the generally health-minded.
WHY GO: While we have lovely beaches right here at home, not all beach communities are created equal. Naples’ advantage is its western exposure (hello, sunsets!) and the gentle waters of the gulf. Contrary to popular belief, the city is not just a hub for retirees. It’s a dynamic community with plenty of culture, a prolific foodie scene, and a focus on well-being. WHERE TO SLEEP: Aside from being Naples’ only beachfront all-suite resort, the Edgewater Beach Hotel is the place to hit the reset button. Designed as a detox from the frenetic pace, the hotel’s Seaside Serenity package includes accommodation in the Serenity Suite, a custom space with a PranaSleep mattress, a NutriBullet Pro juicer, a massage table and yoga mat, and a selection of meditation CDs and essential oils. The package also includes a choice of activities such as an in-suite massage, personal training, wellness coaching sessions, and restorative fitness. Meal options are compliments of the healthful Serenity Dining Menu, and organic fruits and veggies are delivered to the suite for daily juicing. (edgewaternaples.com) WHERE TO EAT:
Healthful options abound in Naples. For clean cuisine with organic, natural ingredients and loads of vegan fare,

head to Food & Thought (foodand thought.com), a café, juice bar, and organic market. The Cider Press Café (ciderpresscafe.com) is the source for gorgeous plant-based dishes like chipotle enchiladas with walnut-sweet potato picadillo and an unbelievable chocolate ganache tart. For sustainable, farm-sourced dining, The Local (thelocal naples.com) is the undisputed leader. Check out the local pan-seared snapper on the Daily Specials menu—it even comes with dessert.
WELLNESS OPTIONS: On a wellness retreat, beach yoga
is a must. Edgewater Beach Hotel offers private vinyasa lessons on the sand—try it during the early morning hours, when there is a fresh breeze coming in from the water. For walking and cycling, the first section of the Gordon River Greenway (gordonrivergreenway.org) boasts paved scenic trails in the heart of town. While you exercise, catch a glimpse of wildlife like alligators and gopher tortoises. The tranquil Naples waterways are perfect for kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. Naples Kayak Company (napleskayakcompany.com) has rentals and guided tours around the area; we recommend paddling through Wiggins Pass. —D.N.

Tampa and St. Petersburg
Tampa and St. Petersburg bring a metropolitan edge to Florida’s west coast. These cities share a love of good food and great art—not to mention a thirst for adventure. The area’s growing young-professional population demands the latest cosmopolitan offerings, meaning there’s something new to explore with every visit. Combine both destinations into one getaway to see how these Old Florida towns have ushered the state into the twenty-first century.
WHERE TO STAY: Foodies flock to the Epicurean Hotel, built as a legacy to the late chef Bern Laxer and situated across the street from his iconic steak house (bernssteakhouse.com) in Tampa’s thriving SoHo neighborhood. Culinary imagery permeates the decor, from oversized silverware instead of door handles to a library stocked with cookbooks. Take a class at the hotel’s Epicurean Theatre and pick a prime Pinot at the wine shop in between cocktails at the Edge rooftop bar and macarons at the Chocolate Pi patisserie. Savor breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Élevage, where James Beard–nominated chef Chad Johnson serves recognizable dishes with a Southern spin. (epicureanhotel.com) In St. Petersburg, look for the pink hotel on the bay. The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort and Golf Club stands as a testament to 1920s grandeur but has modern amenities like a spa and a golf course. Don’t miss The Vinoy’s Sunday brunch in Marchand’s Bar & Grill. A feast worthy of its magnificent setting, this dining extravaganza includes a Bloody Mary bar and multiple stations in addition to a menu of sharable dishes. Rotating options highlight local seasonal ingredients, while craft beer tastings introduce guests to area breweries. (marriott.com) FOR MORE BITES: Tampa/St. Pete’s vast restaurant scene
has everything from eclectic eats at Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café (ellasfolkartcafe.com) and the Spanish flavors of the century-old Columbia Restaurant (columbiarestaurant.com). For a nightcap, swing by St. Pete’s Central Avenue and The Mandarin Hide (mandarin hide.com), a speakeasy that slings up classic cocktails in a slick setting.

CULTURAL OFFERINGS: In St. Pete, surround yourself with Dale Chihuly’s large-scale glassworks at the Morean Arts Center (moreanartscenter.org). The museum is preparing to move its extensive collection to a new location, so stop by in July before then. Down the bay, The Dali Museum (thedali.org) contains more than 2,100 works by the famed surrealist and special exhibitions highlighting his contemporaries. Beginning July 2, view the groundbreaking imagery of Horst P. Horst in “Horst: Photographs—Fashion and Surrealism.” Afterward, catch a film at the Tampa Theatre (tampatheatre.org), a circa-1926 movie house that has to be seen to be believed. Stop by Sundays at 3 p.m. for the Summer Classics movie series with such unforgettable flicks as The Maltese Falcon and Raiders of the Lost Ark. GET WET: At Tampa’s Florida Aquarium (flaquarium.org) guests
can get up close with some of the aquarium’s residents through special experiences like diving with sharks and penguin encounters. Finally, you can cross “pet a penguin” off your bucket list. —Mary Murray PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | JULY/AUGUST 2016
If you have children, chances are Orlando and Walt Disney World figure prominently in your summer plans. But this need not be nirvana for children and drudgery for adults. With a little advance planning and insider information, the Disney experience can be glorious for the entire family.
WHY GO: In recent years, Walt Disney World has evolved
46 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED
to become more experiential and even luxurious. Sure, it will always be a children magnet and the crowds won’t get any thinner. But with the introduction of private experiences, upgraded lodging and dining facilities, and services for affluent but time-conscious travelers, it is possible to bypass the masses and customize your visit.
WORTH THE INDULGENCE: The VIP Tour Guide service is the equivalent of Aladdin’s lamp, from which emerges a genie ready to grant your every wish. Want to be first in line to meet Kylo Ren at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? No problem. Don’t feel like waiting nearly two hours for a spot on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin? Walk right in. Have to have front-row seats to the Festival of the Lion King—and selfies with the performers? Done and done. A VIP guide picks you up at your hotel and drives you “backstage” (fancy talk for the back of the house) so you never have to deal with PRESTON MACK

To elevate the Disney experience, opt for some of the private offerings that are more intimate and special. The expert-led Wild Africa Trek takes guests through the inaccessible areas of Animal Kingdom, providing close-up glimpses of animals via bush walk and private safari vehicles. The three-hour adventure is as close as you can get to an African safari this side of the Serengeti. For a less intense but equally private wildlife experience, Animal Kingdom Lodge offers its guests access to the game-rich savannah at sunset. Patterned after traditional night safaris, this tour gives a look at animals’ nocturnal activity from the safety of a custom vehicle. The journey ends with traditional African tastes—and maybe a sundowner or two—at the Lodge’s signature restaurant, Jiko. (disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts)
A MUST FOR LITTLE ONES: Grand Pirate Adventure. Young mateys will board Disney’s Pirate Adventure Cruise and sail the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake in a simulated treasure hunt, following clues to get to the booty. They’ll even dress the part. (407-WDW-PLAY) WHERE TO SLEEP:
The Four Seasons Resort Orlando is located within the Walt Disney World Resort, proving it’s possible to have luxury and convenience. There are many reasons to choose the Four Seasons, but top among them is Explorer Island, a five-acre water park with two water slides, a Lazy River with inner tubes, a family pool with an outdoor movie screen, and a Splash Zone with waterfalls and fountains for the little kids. Add to that ping-pong and pool tables, a game room, a rock-climbing wall, and beach volleyball, and you might be asking yourself, “Mickey who?” Beyond the fun and games, this resort is a true five-diamond experience (the only one in Central Florida). The rooms are among the largest we’ve seen in Orlando, and certainly the most luxuriously appointed. If
you’re traveling with kids, be on the lookout for fun perks like kid-sized bathrobes, princess and pirate dress-up gear, and passports they can fill out and redeem for gelato treats. We recommend booking a park-view suite, from which you can get a bird’s-eye view of the nightly fireworks from Epcot and Hollywood Studios. (fourseasons.com/orlando)
WHERE TO EAT: If you’ve ever wondered what goes into creating the magic of Disney, sign up for Dine with an Imagineer. Over a fourcourse lunch at the Bamboo Room at Hollywood Brown Derby, you can ask these creative geniuses questions like, “How does the Tree of Life come alive?” and “What’s an imagineer, anyway?” (407-WDW-DINE) At the Four Seasons, the Character Breakfast is a must. On Thursdays and Saturdays as well as summer Tuesdays, Goofy and friends (yes, the friends have mouse ears) entertain guests of all ages between trips to the buffet. It’s more intimate than the character experiences at Disney— and the kids get a complimentary photo. On Sundays, Plancha offers a casual Sunday brunch by the golf course. Depending on mood, you can design your own juice at the juice bar or go for a custom Bloody Mary. The latter is a fine complement to the charcuterie with locally made cheeses and honeycomb or the chicken and white-cheddar waffles with spicy maple syrup. For a fine-dining experience, the destination is Capa, the Spanish steak house on the seventeenth floor. The steak is hand-cut, listed by provenance, and absolutely worth the steep prices. —D.N. KENT PHILLIPS

SPEND THE DAY: Head to downtown Fernandina Beach and stroll the main thoroughfare, Centre Street, from west to the harbor. Pop into the street’s specialty boutiques housed in nineteenth-century brick properties, like Amelia’s Treasure for home goods and fine gifts, Twisted Sisters for decor and apparel that exude Southern charm (think: monogrammed everything), and Lindy’s (lindysjewelry.com) for fine jewelry, including pieces made with local shark teeth picked from the beach. For a quintessential refresh, sip the Pirate’s Punch at Florida’s oldest bar, the 113-year-old Palace Saloon (thepalacesaloon. com), and just try to walk past the popular Fantastic Fudge (fantastic fudge.com) without stopping in for a sweet treat. You won’t succeed.
OUTSIDE TOWN: At the harbor, board an Amelia River Cruises
Northeast of Jacksonville and a stone’s throw from Georgia, Amelia Island is a coastal retreat of undisturbed beaches and small-town rustic charm. Beginning in 1562, when the French Huguenots arrived, the barrier island changed ownership for centuries, waving eight flags over the years and finally earning its moniker in 1763 when James Oglethorpe named it in honor of Princess Amelia, the daughter of King George II. Despite a colorful past haunted by pirate tales, the seaside destination today is a quiet escape of 13 miles of beaches, streets shaded by moss-draped oak trees, and North Florida hospitality.
WHERE TO STAY: You can never go wrong with a Ritz-Carlton property, and the one in Amelia Island (ritzcarlton.com) does not disappoint. But it’s not the only luxury hotel: Slightly south, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort (omniameliaisland plantation.com) is a village of sorts, boasting three golf courses, 23 tennis courts, nine dining venues, and a shopping area with 14 boutiques, all spread over 1,350 acres. Take your pick among 12 villa options, whether you prefer ocean views or oak-shaded privacy along the fairway, and then bicycle on quaint paths, kayak at sunset, and meet the rehabilitating animals at the Omni’s nature center.

While it was never fully completed and didn’t see action, the nineteenthcentury fortress teems with Civil War history and re-enactors who demonstrate the lifestyle of the soldiers who resided and worked at the site.
GOOD EATS: For lunch, take a bite of the local shrimping industry at Timoti’s Seafood Shak (timotis.com) with shrimp tacos and nachos. Both housed in historic properties, Le Clos (leclos.com) presents a refined French interpretation of the area’s coastal cuisine, while Lulu’s at the Thompson House (lulusamelia.com) gets creative for dinner and brunch (fried-oyster benedict, anyone?). And just around the corner from the Omni, BarZin Bistro and Wine Bar (barzin-bistro-winebar.com) serves mouthwatering modern cuisine, like a creamy lobster crepe, pistachiotruffle chicken over angel hair, and pesto-crusted flounder with an herb-parmesan risotto. —Jennifer Pfaff Smith

Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina NSON WALT DE
The natural riches of the Carolina coast have drawn settlers for eons. In 1902, New York banker Richard T. Wilson Jr. fell in love with the Lowcountry and purchased the land of Palmetto Bluff, where he built a mansion for summer escapes. Today, remnants of his four-story estate remain in the heart of the 20,000-acre residential and recreational preserve surrounded by the scenic May, Cooper, and New rivers. The spot still beguiles visitors with its fascinating wildlife and unspoiled spaces.
GOOD SPORTS: Tee off at the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signa-
ture course at the May River Golf Club and watch for lazy gators lolling by the water (montagehotels.com); target some clays on the course of the Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club (palmettobluff.com); explore the Bluff’s trails on horseback with Longfield Stables; and head to the Wilson Lawn and Racquet Club for a game of tennis, croquet, or bocce.
Palmetto Bluff is an understated and sophisticated enclave set within an ecological wonderland.
AQUATIC LIFE: With 32 miles of coastline, water activities are
de rigueur. Cruise elegantly aboard Grace, a 60-foot restored antique yacht. Catch a guided tour with Boo Harrell, manager of Outside Palmetto Bluff. He’s well-versed in local history and a master storyteller who captivates with tales of the area’s quirky characters. And he knows where to best catch sight of mama dolphins with their young, the ultimate spot to take kids fishing, and more secrets of the local waterways.
WHERE TO SLEEP:
Montage Palmetto Bluff offers guest rooms, village homes, and cottages featuring pine floors, vaulted ceilings, screened porches, fireplaces, and elegant furnishings. In September, the resort unveils its expansion—a stately new inn with a 13,000-square-foot spa, a resort pool, and two dining venues.

Charm Baltimore, Maryland
Thanks to well-executed plans for urban renewal, Baltimore is no longer eclipsed by the nation’s capital. In the past decade, chic highrises have replaced dilapidated buildings along the city’s inner harbor, while numerous historic neighborhoods—including the painted screens of Baltimore’s row houses—have received extreme makeovers, reclaiming the late nineteenth-century architecture of the city’s glory days. While this renaissance remains in a fledgling state, Baltimore’s intermingling of old and new, north and south, big-city sophistication and working-class identity make for a completely singular destination.
Clockwise from top left: The Ivy; Baltimore streets, skyline, and buildings; Wit & Wisdom cocktail; Mount Vernon Place Conservancy.

WHY GO: Maryland’s “Charm City” is a destination on the rise, and the hospitality and restaurant industry have taken note: The Four Seasons Baltimore opened in 2011; the city welcomed Maryland’s first Relais & Châteaux property, The Ivy Hotel, last year; and a slew of upscale restaurants have opened in the past two years. Some two-dozen eclectic museums complement the big boys of Washington, D.C., while heritage walking trails reveal Baltimore’s key role in America’s history—and did we mention the crab cakes are arguably the best in the world? WHERE TO SLEEP: In the late-nineteenth century, Baltimore’s Mount Vernon neighborhood was one of America’s most prestigious, lined with mega-mansions for the country’s political and social elite. Relais & Châteaux has meticulously restored one such Gilded Age estate along with a collection of row houses to create The Ivy Hotel, a historysteeped design feast for the senses. Within this 18-key boutique property,

FOR FOODIES: At lunchtime, claw your way through the nofrills Lexington Market to Faidley Seafood (faidleyscrabcakes.com) for the city’s most legendary crab cakes, made from a secret recipe that’s heavy on the jumbo lump Maryland blue crab and light on the filler. Come evening, ditch the plastic fork and knife and savor the apex of Baltimore’s fine-dining scene at Magdalena (magdalenarestaurant.com), located in The Ivy Hotel. Chef Mark Levy celebrates international comfort food through a small but diverse (and ever-changing) menu with dishes like a fillet of wild halibut in a crab and black-garlic broth with buckwheat noodles and spring onions as well as fried oysters over celery mayonnaise, topped with pickled cucumber. For a casualchic evening, sip the handcrafted cocktails at Wit & Wisdom by Michael Mina (witandwisdombaltimore.com) and experience the celebrity chef’s take on the marriage between typical tavern delights and seaboard classics.

While many spas prioritize relaxation and selfimprovement, Eau Spa favors fun over all else. Its motto is pause, play, perfect—with extra emphasis on the play. “Our thinking is: You’re perfect as you are, so just enjoy yourself,” says spa director Catherine Warren. A haven for bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations, and girls’ gatherings, Eau Spa acts as an energetic ode to personal decadence. “We’re a little more Mad Hatter and a little more fun,” Warren says. All this play is backed up by some serious credentials: Eau Spa is a recipient of the Five-Star Award from Eau Spa Bath Lounge Forbes Travel Guide, one of only 26 spas in the United States and 47 worldwide to achieve such a distinction. The party starts the second a spa attendant—referred to as a spa fairy— The 42,000-square-foot facility is open to anyone (not just hotel guests) leads you to the Wishing Well to place a candle with a personal wish in and boasts a chic boutique, scrub and polish bars, bath lounges, a salon, the shallow pool.

Anushka Spa, Salon, and Cosmedical Center Best known as the “anti-cellulite maven,” Anushka Blau proves time and again that conquering cellulite is just her first accomplishment in the quest toward eternal beauty. At her eponymous West Palm Beach spa, salon, and cosmedical center, Blau complements standard offerings with cutting-edge treatments designed to turn back the clock on your skin. Two of the latest additions to her aesthetic arsenal are micro-needling and SilkPeel treatments. The former involves rolling a tool made of microscopic needles along the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production, resulting in the reversal of sun damage and the improved appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. It can be used on many areas of the body and requires very little downtime. Blau’s SilkPeel ups the ante on a traditional microdermabrasion treatment by removing the outer layer of skin through exfoliation but also utilizes serums to target conditions like oily or dry skin. The SilkPeel can be used on the face and neck and also addresses wrinkles, signs of aging, and sun spots. West Palm Beach (561-820-0500, anushkaspa.com)

Pair the Ocean Jasmine Glow treatment with the Botanical Sea facial for a head-to-toe experience. The Ocean Jasmine Glow includes a full-body exfoliation and a jasmine-oil massage.

Waldorf Astoria Spa,
A mecca for holistic skin care is tucked away on North Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach. Tammy Fender is committed to creating products and treatments that are as nourishing to the soul as they are to skin. Her holistic therapies— which include facials, Editor’s wraps, massages, and Ayurvedic rituals—incorporate her 100-percent botanical beauty products. Fender first-timers should opt for one of her customizable facials, such as the Tammy Fender signature treatment with a holistic custom facial and reflexology or the holistic facial treatment with oxygen therapy and peels. Each begins with an organic snack as you select three essential oils to be used in the therapy, and both are exceptionally gentle on the skin, meaning you can get a facial and head out for a dinner date in the same evening.

BOCA RATON RESORT & CLUB
The Waldorf Astoria Spa is big. We mean really, really big. Like 50,000 square feet big. Designed in the style of the Alhambra palace in Spain, complete with extravagant arches and gilded details, the spa comprises more than 40 treatment rooms, a pool, gardens, a café, private lounges, and a Spa Great Hall, where guests can enjoy tea by the fireplace before or after services. The most unique space in this sprawling spa is the ritual bathing area. Step inside and you’re transported to a traditional Turkish bath house—and the experience itself is akin to a hammam, a Turkish bath used as much for relaxation as it is for cleansing. The Waldorf Astoria’s Ritual Bath is composed of a series of thermal and water therapies including a steam, sauna, soak, Swiss shower, deluge (prepare yourself for the water pres
sure), and Jacuzzi session. The bath precedes most treatments on the spa’s menu— and, boy, is that menu long. The staff makes it easy on visitors by selecting monthly specials. In July, try the Life Dance Massage Ritual, which consists of a foot and body scrub, a scalp treatment, and a massage that incorporates body rocking, stretching, and a hot-stone therapy. Perfect for athletes, this package aims to rebalance the body’s natural energy. Increase its effects by scheduling a private yoga session in the spa gardens beforehand. In August, opt for the Elemis Pro Collagen Quartz Lift facial. This anti-wrinkle treatment improves skin firmness and comes with a complimentary ritual bath, as does the Life Dance Massage Ritual.

THE SPA AT PGA NATIONAL RESORT,
PGA NATIONAL RESORT & SPA
PGA National Resort may be all about golf, but its spa is all about water. A collection of mineral pools harnesses the healing powers of some of the world’s most therapeutic bodies of water, such as France’s Salies-de-Béarn and Israel’s Dead Sea, beloved by health fanatics for its high salt content. These pools act as both a relaxing hangout for spa guests (“spatinis” are available at the nearby café) and a setting for certain water-based treatments, such as the Watsu water therapy. During this underwater massage, a masseuse supports you with one hand while gently stretching the muscles as you float. An important tip: The pools are still open to others during this treatment, so spa director Cecillia Tate suggests scheduling your Watsu water therapy for first thing in the morning (9 a.m.) or in the late afternoon (4 p.m.).

THE BREAKERS PALM BEACH
The White Orchid Spa proves amazing things can come in small packages. It manages to pack a dizzying array of services—a full salon, acupuncture, body therapies, esthetics, and medical aesthetic treatments— into just 6,000 square feet. The menu is vast and also features seasonal specials that incorporate fresh ingredients like organic alfalfa root. If you only have time for one experience, we recommend the signature body masque and massage, a luxurious progression from a full-body sugar scrub to a mineral-enriched mud masque followed by a rainfall shower and a Swedish massage tinged with the scent of the spa’s special green tea and lemongrass botanical body butter. This treatment can last anywhere from 75 to 125 minutes, depending on the length of the massage, but we suggest turning off your cell phone and unplugging from the world for the full 125.

PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED
THE SPA AT THE BREAKERS Despite its reputation as Palm Beach’s most steadfast luxury hotel, The Breakers is constantly reinventing itself. Each year, it allocates at least $25 million to resort improvements, and in 2015 it was the spa’s turn for a facelift—an $8 million one. Renowned spa designer Sylvia Sepielli transformed The Spa at The Breakers into a modern oasis of beauty, revitalization, and pampering. Taking inspiration from the resort’s Italian influence and seaside location, Sepielli
created a streamlined look that boasts Mediterranean nods, like an outdoor courtyard, as well as subtle ocean odes, such as pearlized details and a custom shell sculpture of Hygeia, the Greek goddess of health, by local artist Christa Welm. Our favorite sea-inspired touch: using a seashell to scoop ice for instant relief in the sauna. The sea theme extends to treatments like the quartz massage, which takes place on a bed of warm alpha-quartz sand that cradles the body to relieve tension and promote relaxation. Before or after a treatment, make sure to visit one of three lounges for a light bite or a taste of gelato. The Spa at The Breakers is open to all, but we suggest turning the experience into the ultimate staycation. The resort offers special room rates for locals during the summer, and with a room key you’re granted access to exclusive guest-only amenities, like the fitness center and the newly updated Ocean House restaurant.

Deborah Koepper has dedicated her life to helping others discover their best selves. She’s worked for clients like Former First Lady Nancy Reagan and such elite brands as Elizabeth Arden. The beauty guru has called her Sunset Avenue salon and spa home for the past 23 years, bringing all of her industry knowledge to Palm Beach elite and island visitors. “I learned from all the best people in the field, and I incorporate that into our facials,” Koepper says. Her current offerings include the Red Carpet, which gets glamazons camera ready with a microdermabrasion treatment complemented by vitamin and oxygen therapies. Another one of Koepper’s favorites is her aromatherapy facial, which uses pure essential oils to reduce signs of aging. Both come with a facial massage that uses “movements that lift the muscles in the face,” Koepper explains. Palm Beach (561-833-6561, deborahkoepper.com)
SEAGATE SPA, The Seagate Hotel
Deborah Koepper Beauty
For a truly unique menu that combines innovative therapies with luxury products, look no further than the Seagate Spa. For example, its signature Hot Shell massage is a traditional Swedish massage made all the more amazing with the introduction of warmed seashells. Want to press the reset button but think the typical body treatment won’t suffice? Opt for the spa’s Passage to Wellness package, which starts with a steam to open the pores before moving on to a full-body
exfoliation and massage. Afterward, a warmseaweed and essential-oil body mask is applied, followed by a Swiss shower and oil rub. The pièce de résistance: Sip on coconut water as you soak in a tub of sea buckthorn, algae, and sea fennel extracts (your skin will thank you) accented with juniper and lemon essential oils to purify body and mind. The spa’s newest addition is the Elemis Face and Body Radiance signature treatment. Using naturally sourced Elemis skincare products, this service brightens and tones the skin with a radiance-boosting facial, a choice between a cool or traditional thermal massage, and, finally, a bioelectric facial. The Seagate Spa makes it easy to turn one fabulous treatment into a daylong indulgence. Guests at the spa are provided access to the hotel’s full amenities, including a steam room, fitness center, and pool where you can enjoy lite bites like pan-seared tuna and grilled Atlantic salmon. Have a teen at home who deserves a spa day, too? The Seagate Spa has you covered with its Chillin’ Teen Retreat, which includes a 50-minute facial and a chocolatetruffle manicure and pedicure made all the sweeter by a complimentary virgin strawberry daiquiri.

Meet five soulful yoga practitioners who share the discipline with grace and a desire to inspire By Jennifer Pfaff Smith
Kerri Verna believes practicing yoga in an uncontrolled environment like the beach is the core of the disciplineâ€”experiencing the exercise in the elements. 68
PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED
“The beach is my happy place,” Verna says. “It’s where I feel God’s presence the most.”
The first yoga class Kerri Verna ever participated in was the one she taught. A Maryland resident at the time, she was on a quest to become certified in nearly every type of fitness program offered at the gym where she worked: Pilates, tai chi, kickboxing, weightlifting—you name it. But when a pregnancy halted her high-cardio training, she decided instead to pursue “that easy yoga stuff,” as she describes it. “I instantly loved it,” she recalls. “I fell in love with how it made me feel—at peace.” Verna taught yoga until the day before she delivered and later became certified after she and her family moved to Florida nine years ago. Now, since 2012, Verna’s studio is the beach in Lake Worth, where she instructs Wednesday and Saturday mornings. “The sand can be a hindrance and also enhance your practice,” she says. “I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, [but] the sand completely takes away any pain because it moves and can hug your body in a way the ground cannot.” Yogis who can’t attend Verna’s beach class instead observe her practice via her Instagram account, @beachyogagirl, which has attracted more than 980,000 followers in fewer than three years. While normally a private person, Verna has found real-life connections through the social-media network, as she receives inspiring messages from fans, gets to know yogis worldwide, and even met her best friend and business partner, Kino MacGregor, with whom she launched a fitness apparel line through Liquido Active. The mom to two boys travels often, leading workshops around the world and aiming to teach others about what she believes is the essence of yoga: a path to find one’s creator. “You learn how to surrender, release, let go, and turn it all over to the power that created you,” she says. “That is what I feel Zen is.”
To Kelly Green, being a Zen master means staying peaceful amidst the chaos of life. She would know: The first time the Port St. Lucie High School grad entered a yoga studio, she was suffering from a debilitating knee injury that left her depressed and physically limited. But six months later, Green knew she wanted to be a yoga teacher. She enrolled in a training course, finished at the top of her class, and was offered a job at the very studio that had transformed her inside and out. That was 13 years and, to Green, a lifetime ago. Today, with 1,500 hours of training under her belt, she is the co-owner of The Yoga Joint, a South Florida studio with three loA former lululemon ambassador, cations—and 10 more to come this year—including Green has been spreading The its newest in Boca Raton, which opened in October. Yoga Joint message by teaching Along with her business partner, Paige Held, Green at conferences and workshops all over the world, including created the studio’s trademark Hot Fusion Flow, a Thailand and Finland. sequence of traditional poses performed to modern music and inspirational words. “Our teachers are taught life-coaching skills, so when you’re doing the class you’re going to get these uplifting messages throughout the entire sequence of the flow,” she says. Despite leading novices, Green says her students are her biggest inspiration. She’s seen clients step on the mat while going through hardships such as substance abuse and chemotherapy—and then turn their lives around with the help of yoga, just as she did. “We’re working on making our students the very best version of themselves so they can, in turn, make the world a better place,” she says.

A former gymnast with residual injuries, Lemoine found yoga to be an ideal workout.
When Kristen Lemoine discovered one of her favorite shops in Palm Beach Gardens had closed, she made it her goal to relocate her fitness clothing store from its tiny boutique in Abacoa to the expansive space suddenly available in Midtown. There was just one big difference: After meeting an aerial yoga instructor, Lemoine decided to devote half of the new location to a studio specializing in the discipline. She reopened her business as Palm Beach Athletic Wear and Yoga in February 2014. While having the studio was good for business, it also motivated Lemoine to conquer her fear of public speaking to pursue her dream of being a fitness instructor. She became certified in aerial yoga in December 2014 and now teaches regularly. “After that first class, I felt like: This is what I was meant to do,” she recalls. “I wanted to teach 20 classes a day—I was that excited about it. It was so empowering for me to realize what I held back all those years, what I could have been doing all along.” With more than 1,000 poses, aerial yoga has more than just Cirque du Soleil appeal; Lemoine lists such health benefits as increased muscular flexibility, spinal realignment, and a refresh to the endocrine, lymphatic, digestive, and circulatory systems. It also boosts the brain’s neuroplasticity and, yes, releases happy hormones—an easy feat when swinging from a hammock. “It’s a big self-esteem thing as well,” Lemoine says. “People overcome a lot of challenges because there is some fear involved in it.” She teaches a mix of classes, from fitness-focused ones that get the heart rate up to restorative sessions that relax the body. Throughout it all, Lemoine shares affirmations to help others release negativity and overcome their own fears. “If you want to fly, you have to be willing to let go,” she says.

Kundalini and Gyrokinesis have similar mental health effects as yoga, Wish says. “You have that same kind of peace as yoga inside and out, a calmness,” she says.
TARA INC PHOTOGRAPHY
The 1990s was Oblio Wish’s decade of health, when she discovered her spiritual calling to two unique disciplines: Kundalini yoga and the Gyrotonic methodology. She was introduced to both at separate health expos that left her immediately enamored and eager to share the practices with others, which she has done at her Gyrotonic Satnam studio in West Palm Beach since 2008. Kundalini is a form of yoga that incorporates chanting, meditation, and the bang of a gong, which sends vibrations through the body. “It’s taught me how to meditate and helped me be a better person,” Wish says. The Gyrotonic method, meanwhile, branches into two forms: a training system that pairs Pilates-like exercises with pulley-based equipment and Gyrokinesis, which involves yoga-inspired postures usually performed on a stool. Often referred to as “yoga for dancers,” as the program was created by one, Gyrokinesis is ideal for people like Wish, who struggled to perform many yoga postures due to health reasons. “I can’t get in a lot of the positions,” she says. “In this, I can get into all of them and still feel like I did yoga.” Wish teaches Kundalini and Gyrokinesis to everyone from other yoga instructors to people with disabilities, including young children as well as her husband, who has polio. “I get emotional because I see what I do, how happy they are,” she says. “I just love giving back and having people feel good, look good, and be happy.”
Seth Kaufmann knows what you’re thinking when you look at him: He doesn’t fit the typical yogi label. But look past that beard he’s been growing since 2014, and his passion for the discipline is obvious. After earning a master’s in exercise science from Florida Atlantic University, Kaufmann opened Iron Lion Fitness Studio in Wellington in 2012, offering strength and conditioning sessions as well as yoga classes. He didn’t teach yoga at the time but eventually pursued a certification for his own education. “It’s a cliché, but the first time I unrolled a yoga mat and got down in Child’s Pose, I thought, ‘This is my long-lost friend I was looking for and didn’t even know,’” he recalls. “It was such a connection.” Since then, he’s led yoga sessions not just in his gym but also worldwide through workshops and classes—even personal sessions via Skype. Perhaps his greatest teaching experience came last year when he was cast on an episode of A&E’s Fit to Fat to Fit. The show challenges fitness experts to help a client get in shape, with one caveat: The trainers must first gain as much weight as possible. Kaufmann jumped at the unique opportunity, putting on 47 pounds in four months before he was paired with Dave, an Army veteran who weighed 380 pounds. Kaufmann incorporated yoga into Dave’s program, which helped him overcome an essential mental block. Four months later, Dave was down 104 pounds while Kaufmann shed 53. The experience, Kaufmann says, gave him a firsthand perspective of clients who struggle to stay motivated and helped him show millions of people that yoga is for everyone. “I realized: This is what my soul’s been missing,” he says of finding yoga. “This is what I need, and I want to share this with the world.”
“I realized: This is what my soul’s been missing. This is what I need, and I want to share this with the world.”

“Every single human being has the equal opportunity and authority to become Zen masters,” Kaufmann says. “Zen is being fully present in the moment and finding the bliss and beauty associated with every breath.”

This summer, the chef is serving up shareable dishes and light fare with an organic twist, like avocado topped with puffed red quinoa, zucchini spaghetti tossed with pine nuts and Parmesan cheese, and seared Chilean sea bass set on a moat of cauliflower puree. Every Thursday through October, Godbout is also honoring his French-Canadian roots with unlimited flights of mussels and french fries, or moules et frites, accompanied by four dipping sauces: white wine, shallotand-garlic Dijon mustard, spicy arrabiata, and blue cheese.

Taste TROPICAL TIPPLES The tiki craze got its start in the 1930s at California bars like Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic’s before spreading across the country like brushfire on a dry day. Tiki drinks remained popular for nearly three decades until a growing focus on wine captivated consumer attention. Tropical drinks have enjoyed a revival recently, spurred by a new generation of creative mixologists. These area restaurants are capitalizing on that trend, encouraged by the knowledge that a surfer lurks inside all of us. —Mark Spivak
Freaki Tiki Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa, Vero Beach Regardless of whether you sit inside at The Wave Kitchen & Bar or relax outdoors at the Cabana Bar, expect Cuban flair-meets-sun-and-surf at this hotel owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan. “Customers are attracted to the drink by the name,” says Cabana Bar manager Lori Embser. “And when they sip it, the cocktail fits into the entire vacation experience; it’s part of the laid-back beach vibe of the resort.” Bartenders muddle a lemon wedge into orange and cranberry juices and then add Malibu and Botran Blanca rums before topping it off with a splash of club soda. (772-562-9919, costadeste.com)
Caribbean Dream Ke’e Grill, Juno Beach General manager Rob McGrath dreamt up this cocktail years ago, and it fits perfectly with Ke’e Grill’s tropical decor reminiscent of a beach on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The drink combines Cruzan 9 Spiced and Malibu Coconut rums with fruit juice and a floater of Cruzan Black Strap Rum that provides a savory fillip to what McGrath describes as a “clean, straightforward, and refreshing” tropical drink.

Pineapple Smash Café Boulud, Palm Beach For general manager Jason Lakow, the inspiration for this libation came from the copper pineapple mugs. “I knew I wanted them as soon as I saw one, so we designed a cocktail around them,” Lakow says. The drink blends Bacardi Fusion and Stiggins Plantation rums with orgeat, velvet falernum, lime juice, and bitters. “The orgeat adds creaminess and the falernum lends a touch of spice,” Lakow says. “It’s light and refreshing rather than spirit forward. Best of all, it comes in a 32-ounce mug for two guests to share.” (561-655-6060, cafeboulud.com/palmbeach)
A tribute to the bootlegging days of Prohibition, this cocktail originated as part of The Shack, PB Catch’s summer popup lounge. “We tracked down six reproductions of tiki mugs,” says general manager Daniel Smith. “We wanted a retro look and feel to be part of the experience.” Unlike a traditional Rum Runner, fresh banana and blackberries dominate this version with a solid core of Real McCoy Rum, which is made in Barbados and named for Bill McCoy, the most famous bootlegger of all.

The Tiki Torch Punch combines Mount Gay Barbados Rum with velvet falernum, allspice dram, and fresh orange and pineapple juices along with a dollop of local Pascale’s Lemon Basil Marmalade and several types of bitters.

If love is the spice of life, then chef Jordan Lerman and pastry chef Stephanie Cohen have flavored their cuisine with sweet emotion. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, the couple worked in some of New York’s most illustrious kitchens. This spring, they opened a restaurant of their own: Jardin, a 3,300-square-foot eatery in West Palm Beach. Reflective of Lerman’s South Florida and Cohen’s Panamanian roots, the menu offers dishes like pan-roasted mojo gator ribs and Latin-inspired desserts. Here, Lerman and Cohen talk inspiration and cooking tips. (561-440-5273, jardinrestaurant.com) —K.S.
SOUTH MOON PHOTOGRAPHY
PBI: What are your main culinary influences? Lerman: My first main influence is my background [of] the flavors of the food I used to eat at home when my mom would cook as well as the food we used to eat around Florida—a lot of Cuban and Bahamian food. [Also] my first jobs in New York. The time I spent at Eleven Madison Park really showed me what quality is and what our standard should always be, no matter what type of food we are making. How have you weaved in your backgrounds? Lerman: Our crispy hummus was inspired by my time in Israel and the dry chorizo was inspired by Stephanie’s background in Panama.
SOUTH MOON PHOTOGRAPHY
Cohen: Panama is a part of me. I am bringing desserts that have been made over and over again with a Latin flair. Our doughnut tower with maple-Bavarian cream also comes with honey-soaked churros, old-fashioned doughnuts, and café con leche. Any chef tips for the kitchen newbie? Lerman: Always use kosher salt and try seasoning food with [an] acid, whether it’s vinegar, lemon, or lime. A little acid really helps make a dish pop.

The 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro have fueled interest in all things South American, including cocktails like the Brazilian cachaça and the pisco of neighboring Chile and Peru. There are two renditions of the Pisco Sour, and while it is the national drink of both countries, the Peruvian cocktail is creamier and smoother because it uses an egg white. “The South American community in South Florida has a huge influence on our cuisine,” says Jonathan DiFonzo, bar manager for Cut 432 in Delray Beach. “We wanted to reflect that heritage and showcase pisco, but also put a new twist to it.” DiFonzo uses Encanto and a molasses made by reducing pomegranate juice and sugar. “The fruit element adds antioxidant qualities, and people want something healthy even when they’re drinking,” he quips.

BLUSHING BEAUTY Château Miraval’s owners may be famous, but they're also serious about making exceptional wine.
For the latest in fashionable wine, choose an elegant, upscale pink BY MARK SPIVAK
t’s no secret that dry rosé is one of the fastest-growing wine categories in the United States, but for many Americans, this development reflects a reunion rather than a discovery. Prior to the invention of White Zinfandel, dry rosé—specifically, versions from the South of France—was wildly popular in this country. Starting in the late 1970s, things changed radically. Dry rosé wasn’t sweet enough for the emerging generation of White Zin drinkers, while wine connoisseurs didn’t want to be caught drinking pink wine in public. Suddenly the wine is chic again. Sales of rosés from Provence have quintupled in this country over the past five years, and even men seem to be drinking more of it, despite its rosy hue. As ever, the wine neatly bridges the gap between white and red, providing a hint of tannin and
just enough fruit to prevent the texture from seeming pinched and angular. As for food pairings, keep in mind this tip from Julia Child: “Rosé goes with everything.” Affordability was always a big factor in the popularity of rosé, and that hasn’t changed on the basic level. It’s still possible to snag a solid, reliable bottle from Provence for $15. This time around, however, we’re seeing a surge of interest in more expensive and better-crafted wines. This change seems to signal that, for many consumers, Provence rosé is suddenly viewed as a competitor to Bordeaux, Burgundy, or California Cabernet Sauvignon on the quality scale. Domaines Ott has long been the traditional leader in the world of upmarket rosé. Founded by Marcell Ott in 1896, Domaines Ott is a collection of three separate wine estates: Château de Selle, Château Romassan, and Clos Mireille. Organic farming and scrupulous respect Domaines Ott’s wines reflect for the land result in a style that is its focus on pure, pristine, and striking. The organic farming and terroir. wines are blends of Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, and Syrah and retail in the $40 range. The dry rosé category became even trendier when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie purchased
Vineyards at Château Miraval. View of Château D’esclans (right).
Château Miraval, a 1,200-acre estate in Provence. The couple became serious about the winemaking process and partnered with the Perrin family, one of the giants of wine production in the neighboring Rhône Valley. Cynics initially dismissed the product as a publicity stunt, but the 2012 rosé ($25) was rated 90 points by the Wine Spectator. It eventually ranked number 84 in the magazine’s Top 100 that year. The person most responsible for the boom in upscale rosé is Sacha Lichine. The son of vintner and importer Alexis Lichine, Sacha began working at the family estate, Château Prieuré-Lichine in Margaux, during his summer vacations and assumed control of the property after his father’s death. In 1999, he shocked everyone by selling the estate and later bought Château D’Esclans in Côtes de Provence with the intention of making world-class rosé. “People in Bordeaux all thought I was
out of my mind,” Sacha confided during a recent interview. He hired Patrick Léon, the retired winemaker at Château Mouton-Rothschild, to assist him in his quest. The results have been dramatic. His entry-level wine, Whispering Angel ($20), has created a sensation in U.S. restaurants with its clean, bracing texture and polished finesse. His Garrus ($95), probably the world's most expensive rosé, has found a place on wine lists alongside the best of Bordeaux and Burgundy. “It’s very easy to make average rosé but hard to make something special,” Sacha says. “My goal was to turn it into a movement.” «

Sometimes, an amazing room starts with one statement piece. Such was the case in this Northwood Village dining room, brought to life by Piper Gonzalez of Piper Gonzalez Designs for the 2016 American Red Cross Designers’ Show House. “I drew my inspiration for the dining room from a stunning custom chandelier, created by artist Louise Gaskill, which features an orchidcolored piece of vintage Murano glass,” Gonzalez says. With the chandelier as the centerpiece, the designer added splashes of the same purple hue paired with gray silk walls and a bamboo silk rug from Jaipur Living. Gilded flower artwork by Tommy Mitchell and subtle metallic pops imbue the final look with a modern elegance. Says Gonzalez: “Bringing in traces of orchid throughout the room adds a feminine touch, while silver and gold metallic place settings bring glamour to the Art Deco–inspired home.” Royal Palm Beach (561-635-6623, pipergonzalezdesigns.com)

OUTDOOR VOICE For her contribution to the 2016 American Red Cross Designers’ Show House, Melissa Z. Guerra of NXG Studio brought Miami chic to historic Northwood. “The inspiration for the terrace came from an imagined Miami Art Deco boutique hotel,” Guerra says. “We wanted the space to have a modern-retro vibe, so we brought in elements of whimsy, including synthetic grass rugs and a living wall made of artificial boxwood. In order to enhance the modern aesthetic, we enlisted the help of a local artist to create wall panels and sculptures made of weatherproof aluminum. To complete the look we opted for organic shapes, teak accents, and a large white sectional. We then tied each part of the space together with pops of bright aqua, reflecting the colors in the pool below.” North Palm Beach (561-337-8786, nxgstudio.com)

DEGEORGE Traci DeGeorge is the latest luxury specialist to join Waterfront Properties & Club Communities, the Palm Beaches’ and Treasure Coast’s dominant luxury real estate company. In addition to Traci’s track record of discreetly representing private individuals and wellknown names from professional sports and entertainment, she brings to Waterfront the listing for a modern $27.5 million beachfront Palm Beach estate. Waterfront Properties & Club Communities’ Managing Partner Rob Thomson comments, “I’ve enjoyed a great relationship and friendly competition with Traci’s former employer, I know we’ve acquired a great team member with unlimited potential.”

The future. Now. If the present is indicative of the potential Thomson mentions, he and Waterfront’s clients have reason to be enthused. “It was perfect timing to come aboard with this listing,” DeGeorge says. “It is a truly unique home, especially for Palm Beach. Through our extensive global marketing reach, Waterfront Properties is well positioned to bring our seller the right buyer.” DeGeorge speaks fondly of the home’s seller, and what she calls the “seller’s personality.” Proactively, discreetly, and with a sense of urgency is almost universally how sellers in the luxury sector operate their business and personal lives. “The seller is, in many ways, like so many of my sellers. She’s discerning. She’s decisive. Those qualities synthesize with how I do things.” DeGeorge called the move to Waterfront the next logical step in her career. “I can’t say enough good things about the people I’ve had the pleasure to work with and learn from in this market. My former employer being the best example.” She continued, “But my process is to keep going and growing and Waterfront Properties affords me and my sellers and buyers the opportunity to do just that.”
Resources matter. Most. DeGeorge noted an annual internet investment well north of $1 million and the twenty-person dedicated internet marketing team as key agent resources that influenced her decision to join the company. “I knew from other people who’d come to Waterfront over the years that the company goes above and beyond to change the game for its agents.”
the significant share of their leads. The company’s entire corporate structure is focused on freeing up the agent to better serve sellers and buyers. “It’s definitely a high-energy, high-output environment,” DeGeorge adds, “But also incredibly supportive.” Rob Thomson says he’s delighted to have Traci DeGeorge join the company as the latest luxury specialist. “There are at least a few other top producing agents I’d like to see join our team in the near future. I suspect they know who they are.” He continued, “I’d love to hear from them. We have the volume. We have the system. We have the resources. And, we have the need.”

Charcoal is good for more than just a summer barbecue. When treated to increase its absorbency, it becomes activated charcoal, which has a variety of medical and beauty benefits. It is frequently used in hospitals to treat poisonings because it can attach to toxins in the stomach and absorb them before they make their way into the bloodstream. In recent years, the ingredient has become a beauty-blogger favorite because of its purported ability to pull oil, dirt, and other undesirable substances from clogged pores. Itâ€™s most commonly used in facial masks (a great one to try is Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores) and is particularly effective in treating oily skin and acne. In addition to appearing in shampoos and soaps, activated charcoal is also heralded as a natural tooth whitener. Use a charcoal toothbrush (Colgate offers one) in combination with a powder like My Magic Mud Tooth Powder to unveil pearly whites.

GO FOR THE
From August 5-21, all eyes will be on Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympic Games. In honor of this global event, PBI talked to local experts in three modern Olympic mainstays that often fly under the radar. (rio2016.com)
Our Expert: Kim Moser, Palm Beach Classical Fencing, Jupiter, Greenacres, Tequesta (561-6303688, classicalfencing.com) Olympic Debut: Athens, 1896 Basics: Two fencers face off with the goal of landing as many blows as possible on the target area. The events are based on three weapons: épée, foil, and sabre. Type of Play: Team and individual Dates of Medal Play: August 6-14 Countries to Watch: Ones with a rich tradition of fencing like Italy, France, Spain, and Germany How the U.S. Fares: Decently. The Americans received only one medal at the 2012 London Olympics but garnered six at the 2008 Beijing games. Top U.S. Fencers: Miles Chamley-Watson, Mariel Zagunis What Makes a Great Fencer: Moser believes it comes down to mental adaptability. People who fence well “have a high degree of self-awareness and a willingness to change their way of thinking and change their mental priorities,” he says. Fun Fact: Fencing at the Olympics is different than classical fencing. “Fencing as it originated was a martial art and an art form,” Moser says. “Once the modern era came about, fencing as a martial art died out and got replaced by fencing as a sport.” 114 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED
Our Expert: Raymond Tollman, Palm Beach Rowing Association, West Palm Beach (561848-1767, palmbeachrowing.com) Olympic Debut: Paris, 1900 Basics: Boats of various lengths and crew sizes compete on a straight, 2,000-meter course. There are two rowing styles: sculling, wherein athletes use an oar in each hand, and sweeping, in which an athlete powers one oar with both hands. Type of Play: Team and individual (the single scull is the only individual event) Dates of Medal Play: August 10-13 Countries to Watch: Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand, and especially Germany How the U.S. Fares: Quite well. Tollman expects the women’s eight to win the gold as they won the 2015 World Rowing Championships. What Makes a Great Rower: A mixture of strength and endurance. “It’s a high aerobic output sport, and it [requires] an ability to be able to suck in the air and to get that oxygen then into the blood—and do it for a long period of time,” Tollman says. Fun Fact: Ever wonder who the man or woman leading the charge is? That position is called the coxswain; he or she steers the boat and coaches the crew, providing motivation and strategy.
Our Expert: Jennifer Samsel, Perfect 10 Archery, West Palm Beach (561-203-6633, perfect10archery.com) Olympic Debut: Paris, 1900 Basics: Archers aim to hit a bull’s eye from a distance of 70 meters (about 77 yards). Type of Play: Team and individual Dates of Medal Play: August 6-7 and 11-12 Countries to Watch: Korea, Japan, and Mexico How the U.S. Fares: Okay. Says Samsel: “The United States has been coming back stronger every year, so we are pretty prominent.” Top U.S. Archers: Brady Ellison, Khatuna Lorig What Makes a Great Archer: “Being positive [and] being motivated,” Samsel says. “As long as you’re passionate and you love it, you will succeed in it.” She also says archers need “a lot of strength in your stomach and back because you’re putting basically all the weight on the back, but you’re pulling with your upper body.” Fun Fact: There is no age limit in archery, and it is a sport that allows for longevity. Khatuna Lorig is 42. Rio will be her sixth Olympic games.
As smart-phone technology has progressed, so too has our reliance on the devices as our main tool for communication. But the question of cell phone radiation is looming over their usage. Is it possible these trusted necessities are giving us cancer? Current studies say no. Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy, a non-ionizing form of electromagnetic radiation. When you talk on a cell phone, the tissues nearest it—i.e., your brain—absorb that energy. While exposure to ionizing radiation (like X-rays) has been associated with an increased risk of cancer, there is no evidence that decisively indicates the same of non-ionizing radiation. Organizations like the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society agree that more rigorous studies are needed to officially rule on the long-term carcinogenic effects of cell phones, and a few are already in the works. A large-scale study, known as Cosmos, launched in Europe in 2010 and will follow roughly 290,000 cell phone users over the course of 20-30 years to identify any health risks. The U.S. National Toxicology Program is also conducting a study, though this one will expose lab mice and rats to RF energy for several hours a day for as long as two years. While we wait for these results, there are things you can do to limit exposure to RF energy, such as using an earpiece or a speaker, texting instead of calling, and using a landline for long conversations. There are also many products on the market that claim to reduce or neutralize cell phone radiation. The Aires Shield Extreme, for example, is a small sticker that attaches to the back of a phone, while anti-radiation cases like the SafeSleeve (pictured above) use shielding technology to block forms of electromagnetic radiation.

Float On In a world where we’re constantly connected, the promise of 60 minutes of uninterrupted relaxation sounds like nirvana. One way to achieve such bliss is to enter a sensory-deprivation tank for a session of float therapy. Also called isolation tanks, sensory-deprivation tanks were developed by scientists in the 1950s. These lightless and soundproof chambers are filled with 10 inches of water warmed to skin temperature and filled with 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt. These conditions allow you to float effortlessly while also eliminating sensorial stimuli, resulting in the perfect atmosphere to ease into a deep state of relaxation. Float therapy has surged in popularity in the last five years, with the number of float centers in the United States increasing from 85 in 2011 to now more than 250, according to Time magazine. This popularity is due in part to the therapy’s physical benefits, as the salt content helps relieve muscle tension and exfoliate the skin. Scientists are also investigating its potential men-
tal-health benefits; institutions like the Float Clinic and Research Center at the Laureate Institute for Brain Research in Tulsa, Oklahoma, are looking at how float therapy positively affects patients with anxiety, addiction, and PTSD. Here in Palm Beach County, you can try float therapy at Choosing Transitions Float Studio in North Palm Beach. Owner Rochelle Dugan describes the practice as an ideal way to turn off from technology, promote self-awareness, and achieve a state of weightlessness. “You’re completely buoyant, like a cork in the water,” she says. You begin with a shower and then enter the tank naked. The experience itself is womblike: You float with ease while being cradled in warm water. The lack of sight and sound is unnerving at first, but you eventually settle into the nothingness, realizing it is a welcome respite from the overstimulation we’ve all grown accustomed to. At the end of the hour, you leave the tank feeling renewed, destressed, and ready for an amazing night’s sleep. (310-463-2984, staycalmandfloat.com)

“Board” Sports If you want to try a twist on two popular pastimes, then we have the boards for you. SUP fans can forgo paddles in favor of pedals with Hobie’s new Mirage Eclipse stand-up pedal board. Pedals connected to fins propel the board through the water, combining the rigor of an elliptical with the peaceful practice of paddle boarding. The Eclipse comes in two sizes—10.5 feet ($2,499) and 12 feet ($2,599)— and is available for purchase locally at Nautical Ventures in North Palm Beach and South River Outfitters in Stuart. (561-612-7076, nauticalventures.com; 772-223-1500, southriveroutfitters.com) If golf is your sport of choice, then surf the green in a GolfBoard. Not as cumbersome as a golf cart, the GolfBoard resembles a powered skateboard but is far easier to maneuver. Its lithium-ion battery and four-wheel drive allow it to cruise at speeds as high as 14 mph. At this speed, you can play more holes in less time—the average playtime for 18 holes on the GolfBoard is just two-and-a-half hours. You can try the GolfBoard at many South Florida courses, including Heron Bay Golf Club in Coral Springs, or purchase one ($6,500) for personal play.

WHEN SELECTING A SPECIALIST IN REHABILITATION MEDICINE, WHAT ARE THE KEY CRITERIA? Physiatrists are specialists in diagnosing and treating problems of the neurological and musculoskeletal system. In addition, if patients need any other services—such as those of other medical, physical, occupational, and speech therapists—the physiatrist will coordinate that treatment. The result is a specially designed treatment program tailored to the patient’s needs. When picking a physiatrist, patients want to be sure the candidates are board certified, are well trained, and have vast clinical practice experience. WHAT ARE THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS/INNOVATIONS IN YOUR FIELD? The technology of our M6 laser and Accu-Spina are some of the latest innovation in the field. These are two of the nonsurgical approaches to treating chronic and acute pain and injury. WHAT DIFFERENTIATES YOUR PRACTICE FROM OTHER SPECIALISTS IN THE FIELD? Our practice focuses on the treatment of the whole patient, not just the patient’s symptoms. People should come to my practice because the emphasis is on improving function. Through integrated focused care and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Lichtblau and his staff add quality to the lives of patients each year. Pain is enviable, but suffering is optional.

ANDREA HASS, MD BRIAN HASS, MD Hass Plastic Surgery & MediSpa WHAT DIFFERENTIATES YOUR PRACTICE FROM OTHER SPECIALISTS IN THE FIELD? This past year marked our twentieth year in Palm Beach County. When we arrived we had a vision to establish a premier plastic surgery center, and as we enjoy the milestone we are excited for the many more years to come. Itâ€™s always been our mission to provide quality care with excellent results. The bonus has been not only our continued success, but also the camaraderie we have built with our patients and staff that excites us on a regular basis. Forever guided by seeking the best beauty options, we have broadened our realm of care to include the many complementary, noninvasive procedures that go hand-in-hand with our core of plastic surgery for the eyes, face, breasts and body. Facial injectables, CoolSculpting, lasers, and skin care are just some of the reasons we have expanded our office. We look forward to further growth this coming year with additional staff and services offered. Again, we are continually grateful for the long relationships weâ€™ve established and the ones to come!

ORNA HADAR, MD LYNDA FRYE, MD Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at Jupiter Medical Center WHAT DIFFERENTIATES THE NIEDLAND CENTER FROM OTHER BREAST CENTERS? The difference is clinical excellence combined with personalized care. To alleviate the stress many women experience with screening, we provide sameday results. We meet with our patients to discuss their results at the end of their appointment. Our state-of-the-art equipment enables women to receive the most accurate 3D imaging with the lowest possible radiation dose. Our center has met the exacting standards of the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and carries the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence seal from the American College of Radiology. WHEN SELECTING A SPECIALIST IN BREAST IMAGING, WHAT ARE THE KEY CRITERIA? Where you get your mammogram matters, but you also need to know who is reviewing your mammogram. They should be experienced and specialize in breast imaging. We are both board-certified, fellowship-trained breast imagers with more than 30 years of combined experience.

WHAT ARE THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS/INNOVATIONS IN YOUR FIELD? Urogynecology is a subspecialty of innovation. We have minimally invasive treatments for urinary incontinence and will soon have more available that do not require incisions or anesthesia. Developments in treating fecal incontinence are also continuing at a fast pace. Laser therapy for vaginal atrophy and mild incontinence as well as vulvar skin conditions is another new treatment option we offer in our practice now. WHAT DIFFERENTIATES YOUR PRACTICE FROM OTHER SPECIALISTS IN THE FIELD? We are dedicated to making a correct diagnosis and providing a customized treatment plan for every patient. We emphasize nonsurgical treatments as a first option and make every effort with those who need or choose surgery to assure they have selected the appropriate procedure and understand all of the pros and cons prior to having the procedure. We also offer physical therapy in our office to treat bladder and bowel problems. WHY WOULD A WOMAN CHOOSE A UROGYNECOLOGIST FOR HELP WITH PROBLEMS RELATED TO URINARY OR PELVIC FUNCTION? A urogynecologist has additional training in pelvic reconstructive surgery and pelvic organ function. We are trained to see the pelvis as a whole and not simply either the bladder, the uterus/vagina/ovaries, or the rectum. These structures are all connected, and each has an impact on the others. This helps to properly diagnose and treat the patient.

VARTAN MARDIROSSIAN, MD Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics WHEN SELECTING A SPECIALIST IN PLASTIC SURGERY, WHAT ARE THE KEY CRITERIA? When selecting a specialist for the treatment of the face, choose a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with experience and expertise to achieve a naturally youthful, non-operated look. You want to find a specialist who dedicates his/her entire career to studying and treating the face in its complexity. WHAT DIFFERENTIATES YOUR PRACTICE FROM OTHER SPECIALISTS IN THE FIELD? The years spent in building our expertise in decoding the “science of attractiveness” combined with our attention to detail result in our most unique and sophisticated techniques to enhance facial beauty. Perceiving the face and neck in its elements, but also as a whole, is the best way to achieve a longlasting, natural result. We are one of just few practices in the world to perform the highly sought-after facial contouring, among other facial procedures. HOW DO PATIENTS GET TREATED AT MARDIROSSIAN FACIAL AESTHETICS? Our patients are treated with the highest level of respect. Many travel to us from across the United States and the globe to receive highly specialized facial treatments and to enhance their beauty in a natural and unique fashion. We take the time to listen to their concerns, answer their questions, and educate and help them choose the best options available. We know if our patients look good, we look good.

Nic Roldan INS JOELLE WIGG
In 1998, Nic Roldan galloped into history when he became the youngest player to win the United States Open Polo Championship. With an 8-goal handicap, he’s the highest ranked American polo player, currently riding for Flexjet with Grand Champions Polo Club owner Melissa Ganzi. When he’s not in the saddle, he spends time at the Wellington home he co-designed with his mother, Dee Roldan, and hosts charity polo matches for equine and children’s causes close to his heart. FAVORITE MUSICIANS Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay NOW READING How Champions Think: In Sports and in Life by Dr. Bob Rotella CAN’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT Mizuno golf clubs FAVORITE SUMMER ACCESSORY Salomon hiking shoes PERSONAL PASSIONS I’m an ambassador for Brooke USA, which is the world’s largest international equine welfare charity, as well as the Wellington-based Kids Cancer Foundation, where I love spending as much time as possible with the kids. BEST PALM BEACH BITE Tuna and foie gras sliders from Imoto MUST-HAVE GADGET A Bushnell Rangefinder IN HIS CARRY-ON MacBook Air and Beats Pro headphones in black SARTORIAL STAPLES James Perse T-shirts and Double RL jeans FAVORITE ESCAPES Colts Neck, New Jersey is peaceful and wonderful for meandering trail rides. I love Aspen, Colorado for polo, hiking, and biking.
