If you love weird Florida stories, read about Munyon’s PawPaw liqueur and the strange
There’s a charm to summer in the Palm Beaches, when the social whirl ebbs and activities are geared to the locals. I know, I know: It’s hot. But it’s in these dog days that we can enjoy things like the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival, which turns 33 this year, and Flavor Palm Beach, which offers dining deals throughout September. If you play your cards right, every day can feel like a vacation—even if you don’t stray far from home.
With this issue, we offer several ways to accomplish this. Let’s start with fishing. A day on the water is blissful in its own right, but add the excitement of catching your own dinner and you’ve got the makings of an amazing experience. Our South Florida fishing guide is a primer on the most sought-after (some for the flavor, some for the fight) species in local waters, as well as the locations they frequent. Don’t know a braid from a bobber? We even list the guides who can make you look good. It’s all in “Hook, Line, and Sinker,” starting on page 62.
To enjoy summer to the fullest, you will need the right toys. Our automotive and yachting editor, Howard Walker, has compiled an impressive list of vehicles and contraptions that will maximize fun in the sun. There’s everything from a transparent kayak to a souped-up Fiat Jolly that is the epitome of a beach runabout. Or, what about a JetCar that looks like a Corvette but acts like a Jet Ski? Talk about a necessary luxury. Personally, I’m partial to the Romotow rotating travel trailer, a haute-design concept that is also highly functional and just plain cool. I can just see our family pulling into Fort Wilderness with one of those. Check out the full list in “Toys of Summer” on page 76.
When the mood for a road trip strikes, I invite you to consult our comprehensive guide to Florida’s springs, hiking trails, caves, and adventures of every stripe. “Epic Adventures,” starting on page 54, will help you explore the state from corner to corner while taking part in high-energy activities that will create a lifetime of memories—and bragging rights.
We developed this issue as a resource for sun and games in our own backyard, and I hope it will inspire you to get out and enjoy. Here’s to the best summer ever!Daphne Nikolopoulos email@example.com

Palm Beach’s Lake Trail has long set the local standard for bike routes, but across the Intracoastal, an equally cycle-worthy world awaits.
From the Flagler Memorial Bridge, navigate downtown West Palm Beach via the Flagler Drive waterfront or take Quadrille to Clematis, then turn onto Rosemary Avenue to pass through The Square. Continue south to Howard Park, the scenic route into the city’s coolest neighborhoods.
In Grandview Heights—West Palm’s first suburb—architecture aficionados will swoon over the many Craftsman and Mission-style bungalows dating to the 1920s. House-spotting gets even better as you pedal into Flamingo Park, home to many of the prominent citizens of the period, including Alfred Comeau (701 Flamingo Drive). And
no, that uphill isn’t in your head: You’ve summited the highest coastal ridge between here and Miami.
Before wheeling into Sunshine Park, stop for a smoothie at Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market or keep going to Industry Alley for Zipitios tacos and a craft coffee at Composition Coffee House.
Fueled for the rest of the ride, cross South Dixie Highway into El Cid, where you’ll find stately homes to rival any Palm Beach mansion (albeit behind lower hedges). Ride South Olive Avenue for a shaded jaunt through Southland Park or return to Flagler Drive for Intracoastal views until you hit the Southern Boulevard Bridge and return island-side.—Skye Sherman
SAY GOODBYE TO TSA CHECKPOINTS AND HELLO TO UNFETTERED FLYING WITH TWO UNIQUE TRAVEL PROGRAMS
Travelers ditched commercial routes en masse during the pandemic, but that exodus wasn’t just a fluke: With more semi-private travel options hitting the market, having a plane (almost) to yourself is no longer so far-fetched. The private aviation marketplace XO has upped their on-demand connections from South Florida to New York, which clock in around onetenth the cost of a full charter. Through the XO app, customers can book individual seats on shared charters or crowdfund a flight to various destinations that other members can also grab seats on to lessen costs. XO now offers up to four daily shared flights, seven days a week, from private terminals in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach to airports in White Plains, Teterboro, and Farmingdale. (flyxo.com)

A self-described “roller-skating guy,” Christopher Maganias recently transformed Greenacres’ defunct Atlantis Skateway into his newest Astro Skate location. The owner of seven other rinks in Florida, Maganias has a veritable roller-skating empire. When Atlantis Skateway was listed for sale, he was eager to buy, but it sold to a group with plans to transform it into an ice rink. Maganias was devastated, but after a few weeks, the group discontinued their project. Before the property was back on the market, Maganias reached out with a letter asking the sellers to help him keep skating alive. “If we didn’t take it on, there would be no roller skating in Palm Beach County at all,” says Maganias, who hopes this new twenty-first-century roller rink will be the home of skating for the next 50 years.

GET KIDS INVOLVED IN VOLUNTEERING THIS SUMMER AT ONE OF THESE LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS
The Students program by Speak Up for Kids—a child advocacy organization dedicated to breaking cycles of abuse, violence, and crime—provides project-based, peer-to-peer volunteer opportunities to serve the 1,400-plus children in Palm Beach County’s foster care system. Past projects have included donation drives, assembling coloring book kits, ﬂyer distribution, and creating birthday cards (studentsspeakupforkidspbc.org)
Volunteering at Furry Friends’ Jupiter facility (minimum age is 16) is a great option for high schoolers, since the Palm Beach County School District requires at least 20 community service hours for graduation. However, younger helpers can distribute materials to local shops, host a pet food drive, fundraise, foster, and make animal enrichment toys at home using tools supplied by Furry Friends. On July 4, join a public sit-in to comfort ﬁrework-frightened dogs and cats. (furryfriendsadoption.org)
On Saturdays, students as young as 12 (when accompanied by an adult) can volunteer to inspect, sort, and repack donated food in preparation for community distribution by Feeding South Florida. Or join a monthly Family Philanthropy Day—when the age minimum lowers to 6—for a hands-on chance to help your community. (feeding southﬂorida.org)
The Dorothy & Sidney Kohl Jewish Volunteer Center invites all ages to pitch in. Kids can pack and deliver holiday meals to homebound seniors and Holocaust survivors, conduct beach cleanups, assist at animal shelters, visit seniors, collect diapers, and craft cards for seniors, the homeless, and military service members. On July 12 and 27, little volunteers can team up with the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County to ﬁll backpacks with school supplies and assemble teacher classroom kits.

Even the brightest ideas begin as a tiny spark. That’s how husband-and-wife architects Kenia and Matt Forget describe the humble beginnings of Boca Raton–based Stix + Brix, a line of STEM-friendly architectural model kits for kids. “Stix + Brix was an answer to a deep desire to express our creativity without the constraints of traditional architecture practice,” Kenia explains. “It was also the answer to the challenge we faced during Summer 2020 when our kids’ summer camps were canceled and we needed activities to keep them busy.” Working together, the Forgets designed a line of colorful, modern kits ranging from A-frames to cottages, skyscrapers, and treehouses. Each kit comes with supplies such as pre-cut interlocking wood, assorted paints, crafting items, and illustrated instructions. They’re available online and at A Little Wyld in Delray Beach.

AFTER ITS ORIGINAL PALM BEACH DEBUTBY CATHY CHESTNUT
It may not cure whatever ails you, but Munyon’s Paw-Paw aperitif promises to stimulate a curious cocktail tale along with your appetite.
The brainchild of local spirits industry veterans Paul Massey and Joe Colucci, the 20 percent alcohol liqueur made of all-natural ingredients pays homage to an illustrious character named Dr. James M. Munyon. Though he wasn’t a doctor, Munyon was a nationally recognized promoter of home remedies manufactured and distributed through his Munyon Homeopathic Home Remedy Company based in Pennsylvania. A Renaissance man (alternately referred to as a “quack doctor”), he wrote music, sold real estate, and developed two resorts, including the Hotel Hygeia on Munyon Island in Palm Beach County.
Munyon bought the island hosting a pioneer’s two-story home and gardens in 1901, according to the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. In 1903, he built the five-story, 21room Hotel Hygeia (named for the Greek and Roman goddess of health) as well as a seawall, orchards, and groves. Hotel guests drank Dr. Munyon’s Paw-Paw Elixir and bathed in a “fountain of youth,” according to the Historical Society, though it’s been reported that sulfur water was piped from the mainland for soaking baths.
The paw-paw in Munyon’s elixir, however, was not the well-known patch-forming tree that bares edible fruit, but rather papaya, which Munyon grew on the island along with grapefruit, hibiscus, and oranges, explains Massey. His bottled Munyon’s Paw-Paw “compound” sold for $1 with a label touting, “Prepared for Indigestion, Nervousness, Loss of Vitality, Constipation.” The directions called for taking “one or two dessertspoonfuls three times daily with your meals.”
Massey and Colucci stumbled upon Munyon’s Palm Beach story as so many others have: by tooling around modern-day John D. MacArthur Beach State Park. The hotel burned to the ground in 1917, and the island was later used for dumping Intracoastal Waterway dredge materials before MacArthur bought it in 1955.
Colucci recalls the day his family and the Masseys visited the state park and came upon the visitor center display featuring original bottles of Munyon’s Paw-Paw. “The wheels
Both Massey and Colucci get a kick out of Munyon’s flamboyance. He appeared in advertisements for dozens of homeopathic treatments with his finger pointing to the sky and the message “There is Hope!” Along with it, he sold his fans on his Munyon’s Hope Association, for which they received a lapel pin and product promotions. Massey and Colucci claim he was “more popular than the president of the United States,” and passersby would greet him with the skyward finger and hope phrase. The description for Heindel’s book states: “Today neither his resorts nor his medicines survive, but his approach of linking a persona to a product remains a paradigm in promotional advertising.”
Munyon was an inspiring rags-to-riches story: He was born in Connecticut in 1847 and worked as a “bobbin boy” in textile factories, formulated and sold his own therapeutics as a teen, then served in the Civil War for the Union. He went on to a varied career that included publishing and booking theater talent before opening his home remedy company.
immediately got turning,” he says. “We became amateur historians.”
Massey and Colucci flew to Pennsylvania to meet Ned D. Heindel, author of the 2021 book Medicine, Music, and “Money” Munyon, and learn more about Munyon and his remedies. Heindel analyzed original Munyon’s Paw-Paw samples and determined the concoction contained about 15 to 24 percent alcohol, depending on the year of manufacture. It also included fermented papaya and nux vomica, which is derived from strychnine tree seeds and is incorporated into homeopathic treatments for several ailments but is toxic in high doses. Heindel also discovered a most unexpected ingredient: THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Whatever the goal of the tonic, Colucci says, “I’m sure people were feeling a heck of a lot better.”
Massey and Colucci’s Munyon’s Paw-Paw, which launched in January, doesn’t contain
poisons or psychoactive ingredients. With a vodka base, it is made with all-natural allspice, angelica, anise, bitter orange, cane sugar, elderflower, Florida orange, gentian, ginger, hibiscus, orange blossom, papaya, passion fruit, and pink grapefruit. They worked with Big Cypress Distillery in Miami to create the flavor profile and produce it in small batches.
The longtime friends own, manage, and market it through their company, Sophisticated Sand Spirits, and it’s distributed by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits statewide to Total Wine & More, most ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, and local liquor stores. Both Massey
and Colucci have been in the spirits industry in South Florida for more than 20 years, and Colucci says liqueurs are currently trending. Some European brands are more than 100 years old, “and they were started for that medicinal purpose,” he notes. “We have a new-world take on an old-world tradition.” (munyonspawpaw.com) «
LIVING WITH IVEY
Indigestion is nothing new. We’ve all experienced this vexing stagnation in our digestive tract at some point in our lives, whether through heartburn, bloating, or constipation. Certain foods and bad habits such as smoking might increase these symptoms and make them chronic. The solution? Adjusting your diet and breaking unhealthy vices. With the right mindset, you can take positive steps toward reviving a sluggish digestive system. But to understand what your body needs, it’s best to familiarize yourself with how your digestive system breaks down what you eat.
This process begins with the body’s production of digestive enzymes, proteins that help break down food and allow for nutrient absorption. Digestive enzymes are naturally found in some foods, as well as within saliva and the pancreas, gallbladder, and liver. There are three primary digestive enzymes: amylase, which breaks down carbohydrates and starches; protease, which breaks down proteins;
and lipase, which breaks down fats.
As we age, our ability to produce these enzymes decreases. Processed foods like dairy, sugar, grains, and reﬁned oils also impede natural enzyme production. Luckily, with a few dietary and lifestyle changes, you can give your digestive system the tools it needs to function properly. Read on for more tips and recipes.
Consume foods with natural digestive enzymes: Incorporate mangoes, bananas, papaya, pineapple, bee pollen, ginger, avocados, fennel, and raw, unﬁltered honey into your diet.
Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, pickles, miso, and kimchi also add enzymatic value to meals.
decrease indigestion, so incorporate it into your food or steep it as tea. Roasted dandelion tea and fresh peppermint tea can reduce bloating, and fennel has long been used to treat indigestion; try adding it to your salads or chewing on fennel seeds to relieve an upset stomach.

» Chew and eat slowly: Digestion begins before the ﬁrst bite, and salivation and chewing stimulate production of digestive enzymes. When you eat slowly, your body can better digest your food, and it has more time to signal to your brain feelings of fullness.
» Fried foods: Avoid foods rich in unhealthy saturated fats like reﬁned seed oils.
» Carbonated water (in excess): Club soda, seltzer, and sparkling water are made by infusing water with carbon dioxide under pressure. That gas can get trapped in your digestive system, which can lead to bloating.
» Artiﬁcial sweeteners: Not only do artiﬁcial sugars cause bloating, gas, and diarrhea, but they can also degrade the gut lining.
» Dairy: Most people do not produce enough of the lactase enzyme required to digest dairy, resulting in gas, bloating, and diarrhea.

TUCKED AWAY FROM THE BEATEN PATH, TWO ISLAND RESORTS REDEFINE THE BAHAMAS EXPERIENCE WITH BAREFOOT LUXURY AND HAUTE DESIGN
A 40-acre boutique resort, The Cove Eleuthera offers guests a secluded paradisical retreat with a luxurious yet friendly feel. Situated on the north end of quiet Eleuthera—one of the less-traversed Bahamian islands—The Cove is just 30 minutes south of North Eleuthera Airport, which is reachable via quick flights from both Miami and Fort Lauderdale airports.
Upon arrival, the resort’s personable staff greets you for check-in. Expect to be called by name and whisked away to one of the property’s 29 guest accommodations, which include one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites, cottages, and beachfront villas. All guest rooms are luxe and well-appointed,
however, you’ll find no flash or fussiness. Clean lines, natural wood elements, and neutral tones ensure there’s no distracting from the native beauty that abounds, including the near-hypnotic turquoise waters found on the resort’s two private beaches. Even the on-site Freedom Restaurant & Sushi Bar and Gregory Town Grill exude a sense of refreshing minimalism that’s fitting for this placid property.
Speaking of the culinary, The Cove offers guests an array of fresh fare. Island-inspired dishes and sushi creations can be found at the Freedom Restaurant & Sushi Bar. Eleuthera is known for its especially fertile soil, and the produce from the resort’s organic garden (available for guests to tour) is put to good use. As for breakfast, it’s difficult to rule out room service, especially when you can savor a morning acai bowl and cappuccino alfresco with Caribbean vistas from your room’s wraparound deck.
Eleuthera’s etymology derives from eleutheros, the Greek word meaning freedom.
It’s a fitting name for this calm, entrancing
haven where you’re uninhibited to while away hours relaxing beachside or by The Cove’s infinity pool, perhaps with a Freedom Style Mojito or Nojito in hand.
That said, if you’re after exploration or adventure, there’s plenty to be had, and the resort’s staff stands ready to assist. Paddleboards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and bicycles are available for use on property; the resort’s boat is also available for day excursions. Off-site—but still on the island—enjoy myriad sights and experiences, from seahorse watching at Sweetings Pond, to a soak in pools naturally formed by the Atlantic at Queen’s Bath, to a swim in the Sapphire Hole, an underwater sinkhole filled with azure water. There’s also historic Preacher’s Cave, where you can visit the site of an English shipwreck.
Sometimes, the most productive thing to do is relax—to slow down. Eleuthera and The Cove offer travelers a respite from life’s hustle and bustle. It’s the perfect paradise to refocus the mind and rekindle the spirit. (thecoveeleuthera.com) —JaneE. Enos
After landing on the dusty airstrip at Congo Town and driving through a part of the Bahamas that time forgot, pulling into Caerula Mar Club feels like entering an oasis. Whitewashed cottages with wide porches sprout from the sand. Organic shapes and driftwood tones impart an immediate sense of serenity. Hammocks slung across palm trees sway in lazy breezes. And every path leads to the sea.
It wasn’t always like this. The Emerald Palms hotel, originally built in the 1960s, had been abandoned for some years and fallen victim to the whims of weather. While vacationing on South Andros Island in 2017, Sarah and Bryan Baeumler saw the derelict property
and its 10 acres of waterfront and bought it on the spot. Their plan: to transform the place into Andros’ first true luxury resort. It didn’t hurt that they were an HGTV Canada power couple—he a contractor, she a design wiz— with several renovations under their belts.
The Baeumlers’ journey, which they turned into a “huge family adventure” by moving to the island with their four young children, was chronicled on the HGTV show Renovation Island. For three seasons, viewers were riveted as the couple found solutions for issues ranging from bad plumbing to a major hurricane.
Sarah’s plan was to create a tropical idyll with all the island feels and none of the pretense. The Signature Collection private villas, available in one- or two-bedroom configura-
Traveling off the beaten path requires some expert assistance to make everything seamless. In the case of Congo Town, there are daily flights on Makers Air out of the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, but if you want to fly on your own schedule (and in luxury), Ascend via Makers Air is the better choice. The Ascend charter team handles every detail while you relax at a posh lounge before departure on your private aircraft, so vacation starts before you leave the ground.

tions, blend traditional Bahamian architecture with mid-century modern style for a sophisticated take on island living. Bleached oak floors and materials like aged marble, natural woods, and rush have an organic sensibility. Light-suffused rooms are decorated simply—a white bisque vase here, a stylized branch there—in a sand-toned palette that lends itself to a relaxed atmosphere. French doors open to woodplanked porches for lounging, entertaining, or contemplative moments in nature. Step down and find yourself on the sand, mere paces from the Bahamas’ famous turquoise surf.
Every detail is an immersion in island living, down to the smallest accessory. “We love supporting Androsian entrepreneurs,” Sarah says. “From homemade coconut soaps by Sha-
ron to woven grass baskets by Flossy, we have tried to incorporate local materials and artisan goods as much as possible.”
Design’s purpose is to set a tone for living, and here the tone is conducive to languid beach days under the shade of palms, strolls along the shoreline, and biking The Queen’s Highway, South Andros’ only road. It ignites the desire to swim in blue holes, which are plentiful around the island, or take a boat to a deserted beach for coral-reef snorkeling (we saw nurse sharks, stingrays, and a sea turtle), with a chef’s picnic to round out the day. Or the ambition to hook a bonefish, which will make you earn your stripes as an angler. Whatever your passion, Caerula Mar is both the backdrop and the inspiration for an authentic Bahamian holiday.

Sometimes you just need a change of scenery—and a change of coasts. When that moment strikes, head west to the Paradise Coast, where the Naples Grande Beach Resort beckons with amenities from water sports to golf and beyond. The star of the show, however, is perhaps the all-natural and organic Spa at Naples Grande.
Following Japanese tradition, the spa complex is set among lush greenery, relaxation areas, and soothing water features, dotted by four treatment pavilions. The standout among them is the Signature Villa, where guests can book a Retreat package for individuals, couples, or small parties. After indulging in a massage followed by a salt bath float or scalp massage, you’ll have the building all to yourself—complete with an infrared sauna, plunge pool, and private sundeck.
You could also go high-tech with one of the spa’s nontraditional options like cryotherapy
(targeted treatments or whole-body options), vibroacoustic electromagnetic and infrared (VEMI) bed therapy that mimics the body’s own frequencies to induce a deep meditative state to recharge and detoxify cells, or an Avacen session, which uses heat to increase microcirculation and enhance oxygen delivery to muscles. In between appointments, unwind in the sanctuary of the

indoor-outdoor spa village, with its sundeck, wading pool, thermal pool, steam room, meditation lounge, and walking labyrinth for a full day of relaxation for mind and body.
After such spa sensations, book a table at the Naples Grande’s signature restaurant, The Catch of the Pelican, where dishes are both locally and seasonally focused. Most of the produce used is grown in the hotel’s kitchen garden, and seafood is sourced from local day boats.
After dinner is the ideal time to head to the resort’s 3-mile stretch of whitesand beach adjacent to Clam Pass Park. Make your way along the charming boardwalk for a leisurely stroll through the mangrove-laden estuary. In a hurry? Hop a ride on the golf cart trolley or borrow a bicycle. If you time it right, you can grab a drink at beachfront bar Rhode’s End and settle in to ooh and aah at a stunning sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. (naplesgrande.com) «
LUCID’S BATTERY-POWERED AIR GRAND TOURING PACKS 819 HP AND CAN RUN 516 MILES ON A CHARGE—BUT THERE’S A CATCHBY HOWARD WALKER
See this swoopy, all-electric sedan racing down the street and you’d be forgiven for thinking it was some futuristic auto show concept or an extra from Blade Runner 2049 with a grizzled Harrison Ford behind the wheel.
The gorgeous, sweeping arc of its all-glass roof. The towering waistline with more taut, tense muscles than Seabiscuit in his prime. The cool laser light show from its wafer-thin LEDs. This is the Lucid Air, the firstborn of Silicon Valley start-up Lucid Motors, run by the same Brit
who engineered the Tesla Model S for Elon. Currently, Lucid offers four—soon to be five—versions of the Model S–size Air. The range kicks off with the 480-hp Pure at $87,400 and soars to the upcoming Air Sapphire, with an insane 1,200-plus hp and quarter-of-amillion price tag.
The midrange Air Grand Touring (starting at $138,000) boasts two rather astonishing numbers. The first, 819, is the horsepower from its dual electric motors, which can deliver stand-
still to 60-mph acceleration in 3 seconds flat. Then there’s 516, which is the number of miles the Air can breeze along between charges— currently the longest range of any electric car. Find a 350kW high-speed charger and add 200 more miles in just 12 minutes.
The interior is as Jetsons-esque as the exterior. Because the entire roof is one piece of curved glass, it feels like you’re sitting in a huge bubble. But beware: Despite the tinting and metallic coating meant to reflect the heat, Florida-style sunshine will have you sweating like a polar bear in a sauna.
More wow factors include a dashboard dominated by a 34-inch floating display and a tablet in the center console that disappears at a touch to reveal a storage compartment. And the materials scream Scandinavian cool, with a contemporary mix of leathers, linens, and suede-like Alcantara accented by open-pore matte wood.
When was the last time you saw front seats a different color than those in the back? In the rear, there’s Merc S-Class legroom and a perfectly ﬂat ﬂoor to add to the feeling of space. The seats themselves can fold to enlarge the trunk, which is reached via an opening that’s weirdly wide and narrow. Need more bag space? The front trunk (aka the frunk) is as big as a bathtub.
On the road, this Grand Touring Air makes a sensational, high-luxury sporting sedan. Naturally, it’s whisper quiet at anything other than low speeds, when the background whine from the motors intrudes. Squeeze the throttle, however, and it’s all mind-warping thrust.
Despite its 5,200-pound weight, the Air can scythe around curves like it’s running on invisible rails, with massive grip from the 21-inch tires and laser-like precision from the steering. And you can choose between three levels of electrical excitement: Comfort provides a smooth ride, Swift offers more volts and ﬁrmer suspension, and Sprint unleashes the Kraken and all 819 horseys.

But what about all those stories of so-so reliability, irritating software glitches, and sketchy customer support? Well, during my week with the car, it locked me out with the key inside, requiring a call to tech support for a remote unlock. Two days later it refused to come out of Park and into Drive, requiring a 55-minute software update that thankfully solved the issue. Remember, Tesla had the same kind of
glitches with its Model S circa 2013.
It’s a concern, especially with a car costing almost $140,000. But there’s too much at stake at Lucid—and too much ﬁnancial backing behind it—for the Air and upcoming Gravity SUV version not to succeed.
Roll the dice, take the gamble, and this remarkable piece of design and engineering will, hopefully, not disappoint. «

Individual, imaginative, and infused with a century-old tradition of legendary service, The Residences introduce a new wave of appointed living to Palm Beach Gardens’ most exceptional waterfront address.
The Estate Collection is a limited offering of three-, four-, and fivebedroom residences and private marina offered from $4,000,000.
As the French say oh-so eloquently: “Ooh la la!” Simple translation: “Wow!”
The phrase perfectly describes the bold, avant-garde design of prolific French builder Jeanneau’s new flagship fast cruiser, the Jeanneau DB/43. Stretching more than 44 feet from its near-vertical plumb bow to its sawn-off tail, the DB (short for day boat) is guaranteed to spin heads from Miami to Maine.
Henri Jeanneau started off building outboard-powered wooden dinghies in 1957, only adding sailboats in 1964. Today, the Jeanneau company is part of the Groupe Beneteau conglomerate, which not only includes Beneteau and Jeanneau, but Prestige, Lagoon Catamarans, Wellcraft, Four Winns, and Scarab.
While Jeanneau has been offering powerboats since the early ’80s—Cap Camarat and
the wonderfully named Merry Fisher are firm Euro favorites—it is only now dipping a toe in the luxury day boat water with its new DB range.
The DB/43 made its U.S. debut at the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Its target audience is the day or weekend boaters or sunset cocktail cruisers who want to head out with friends and family, drop the hook, or cruise to a favorite waterfront eatery.
Italian designer Camillo Garroni came up with the 43’s head-spinning exterior lines, dominated by towering hull sides and a racy, swept-back windshield. The screen itself flows seamlessly into that extended hardtop, which has a huge opening section to let in the sun
and an extendable rear sunshade to protect the back of the cockpit.
But the headline feature here is the power-lowering side terraces. At the push of a button, these extend the cockpit width from 12 feet 6 inches to 18 feet 6 inches to create one very cool beach club. Another button elevates the cockpit sun lounger to reveal storage for everything from Seabobs to dive tanks to lines and fenders. In place, the sun lounger
has a movable backrest that works with the double-leaf folding table. And outdoor kitchens don’t come more versatile than the DB/43’s, which has a grill, fridge, sink, and ice maker, plus lots of prep space.
To accommodate the two-cabin layout below deck, Jeanneau jettisoned the typical walk-around side decks. Instead, there are three steps on either side leading up to a highish foredeck with an oversize sun pad. For overnight stays or afternoon naps, there’s a surprisingly spacious forward cabin with soaring headroom and a lowheadroom guest cabin under the cockpit floor. There’s also a second galley here with a sink, microwave, and fridge, along with a roomy head and shower. Ditch the galley and you can opt for a second shower room for guests. And in typical French fashion, the materials, design flourishes, quality, and fit and finish are just exquisite.
Powering the DB/43 is a choice of twin inboard turbo-diesels with sterndrives. The

standard engines are 380-hp Volvo D6s with the option of 440-hp versions. Also on offer are triple 350-hp Mercury Verado outboards or equivalent Yamahas hanging off the transom. The outboards deliver a top speed of around 40 knots, compared to around 33 with the inboards. The other downside of inboard power is the boat’s tight engine compartment, which makes maintenance a real challenge.
The design of that deep-V, wave-cleaving hull is the handiwork of Sarasota-based naval
architect Michael Peters, who’s been sculpting Jeanneau hulls for more than three decades. Peters’ focus here was on delivering speed with a smooth ride. The hull itself was designed for a top speed of 52 mph, which means the option of the latest 600-hp Verado V12 outboards can’t be far off.
Yes, there’s no shortage of rivals in this rapidly growing sector of the market. But the style, speed, and spaciousness of this dynamic DB/43 gives it a certain je ne sais quoi. «

Fishing is big business in South Florida. Here’s what—and who—you need to know, whether you’re a weekend angler or competing with the best of them.By Kevin Koenig
Robert “Fly” Navarro never knew that taking a job refurbishing patio furniture as a teenager to help pay for college would change his life. As with all things regarding fate, the path that was laid out for him could only be understood in retrospect. Navarro was not yet old enough to vote when he started working for a friend in Palm Beach County whose father was a ﬁshing-boat captain.
“The guy asked me what I was doing that summer, and I said I was just trying to make money for school,” says Navarro. “He offered me a position as a deckhand. I’d been fishing since I was 5, but I told him I didn’t know anything about big boats. He said it didn’t matter, he wanted someone who spoke two languages.”
Navarro, who is of Cuban descent, is fluent in Spanish, and that was a major asset as American sportfishermen became more and more interested in plying Latin American waters for giant billfish. The young fisherman soon found himself in Mexico, where he says he was picking up jobs left and right due to his bilingualism. By the late ’90s he was living in Venezu-
ela and working as a deckhand and interpreter on various sportfishes.
That was when Jim Lambert came calling. At the time, Lambert’s fishing operation from a fully custom, 80-foot Merritt named Reel Tight based out of Hillsboro Beach was, as Navarro puts it, the New York Yankees of sportfishing, with no expense spared. Lambert signed Navarro as a deckhand, and the two worked and played together catching billfish for 14 years until Lambert’s death from cancer in 2008. By that time Navarro estimates he had landed about 725 billfish aboard Reel Tight, and in doing so had become one of the most knowledgeable, well-known, and well-loved
“I’d been fishing since I was 5, but I told him I didn’t know anything about big boats. He said it didn’t matter, he wanted someone who spoke two languages.”
anglers on the South Florida scene.
He would parlay that experience into becoming a fishing guide based out of Palm Beach County, with a specialty in landing massive billfish—sailfish, swordfish, and black and blue marlin. One time aboard the Reel Tight off Panama, he hooked into a blue marlin he estimated at 950-plus pounds. “I’m old school,” he says. “It might have been a grander [slang for a 1,000-pound fish] but I didn’t weigh it, so I can’t say it. I know it was big enough that Jim Lambert—who was a major conservationist—said that if he was the one who reeled it in, he’d want to bring it
back to the docks for weighing. So that tells you something.”
As Navarro, now 50, grew older, he found being on the water 250 days a year too taxing for the long haul. If his joints were aching, his passion was not—and he still felt a fierce pull to share his passion for angling with the world. “My whole thing is that I want to get more people fishing, especially the younger generation,” he says. “And I realized that instead of taking one person fishing, I can go fishing myself and record it and share it on
my social media platforms and the world can see it.” Think of it as “teach a man to fish” for the digital age.
Indeed, the world soon noticed. Navarro’s promotional work for fishing has caught the attention of tourism boards and fishing organizations across the globe. Today Navarro spends those 250 days a year traveling to far-flung locales like Portugal, Japan, and Australia helping to spread the joy of fishing. “I’ve been to Beijing,” says Navarro, “and I helped the prince of Abu Dhabi put on a fishing tournament in the Seychelles. People see my love for the sport and my knowledge of how fishing events should be run, and they
hire me. That’s great for me, great for them, and great for the sport.”
The COVID-19 pandemic crimped Navarro’s jet-setting ways, but he was undeterred in his purpose. “During COVID I helped start RTH TV, which is a streaming service that was originally dedicated to putting out ﬁshing content, but which has grown to include Olympic sports like judo, diving, and a bunch of others,” Navarro says. He adds that RTH TV will have the capacity to be distributed to 320 million homes and could be the nexus for the next big boom in the ﬁshing industry.
Not a bad career for a kid who started out sanding down rocking chairs.
For decades South Florida has been one of the world’s hot spots for ﬁshing, and it’s no secret why. With spectacular reefs and easy access to the Gulf Stream, the region could not be better situated for wetting a line. Here are some of the most famous ﬁsh you might hope to catch.
SAILFISH: Perhaps the fastest and most acrobatic of any gameﬁsh, sailﬁsh regularly travel in large schools oﬀshore, meaning when you catch one, you often catch many. The ﬁsh are known for their majestic jumps when hooked. They have minimal table value, and because of their soughtafter stature as gameﬁsh, they are nearly always released back into the sea.
can see it.”
SWORDFISH: Built like tanks, these delicious ﬁsh are mainstays on restaurant menus for good reason. Lately, it’s been en vogue to “deep drop” for these large billﬁsh oﬀ Miami, where they bite at depths around 1,500 to 1,800 feet. Once hooked, an angler can expect to be in for the ﬁght of his life.
“My whole thing is that I want to get more people ﬁshing, especially the younger generation. And I realized that instead of taking one person ﬁshing, I can go ﬁshing myself and record it and share it on my social media platforms and the world
TARPON: One of Florida’s most iconic gameﬁsh, the tarpon grows to around 200 pounds, with every ounce full of ﬁght. This is an inshore species, abundant in places like Government Cut in Miami, Palm Beach Inlet, and the Keys. Because they’re nearly all bone, you’ll likely never see one on a plate.
SNOOK: Snook used to be referred to as soapﬁsh because if you cook them with the skin on, they taste like, well, soap. When prepared properly, the mild and ﬁrm ﬂesh is highly prized. These elusive ﬁsh prowl South Florida’s grass ﬂats and can be found in both salt and fresh water.
GROUPER: Multiple species of grouper can be found among the reefs and wrecks of South Florida. Nearly all of them are delicious, with a ﬂaky, white ﬂesh that is excellent blackened, grilled, or fried.
YELLOWTAIL SNAPPER: These tasty and aggressive ﬁsh respond well to chumming and they love glass minnows as bait. Just be careful, because that chum can bring up bigger, toothier ﬁsh like shark and barracuda that want to make a meal of your snapper just as much as you do.
Fishing in South Florida is nearly totally dependent on clean waters. The state does a good job of regulating habitats so that wildlife— and the tourists and ﬁshermen it attracts—can ﬂourish. Here are a few things you can do to help the cause.
To be the best conservationist you can be, you should read books and articles, and talk to ﬁshermen and conservationists about how to best protect the environment in your neck of the woods.
Circle hooks work best for keeping ﬁsh healthy as they lodge in the side of the animal’s mouth and don’t threaten to hook a vital organ.
Mangroves serve as key nurseries for younger ﬁsh, among other important duties. They are protected by law and should be respected by all. In the state of Florida, if you develop on a patch of mangroves, you must plant the same area of mangroves elsewhere in the state.
Debris and trash from watercraft is a huge problem in South Florida. Not only is it unsightly, it’s harmful to marine life and birds. To avoid pollution, be sure that everything you bring on the boat stays on the boat. Secure equipment and bag trash so that you may throw it away after you return to shore.
Far and away, the most democratic type of ﬁshing is freshwater ﬁshing. With so many lakes, ponds, and canals in Florida, anyone can do it. In the Sunshine State’s freshwater abodes, the largemouth bass reigns supreme. Lake Okeechobee is the most famous place to catch the king of freshwater ﬁsh, with the largest ever hauled out of the lake weighing in at a whopping 15 pounds, 5 ounces. It’s not surprising these bass get so large because they’ll eat almost anything—ﬁsh, frogs, crayﬁsh, and even ducklings are on the menu.
Both American lobster (with claws) and Caribbean spiny lobster (no claws) can be found in Floridian waters, though the latter is the far more common and iconic of the pair. The shallow waters of the Florida Keys are the best places to ﬁnd spiny lobsters. Regular lobster season in Florida runs from August 6 to March 31, with a mini season just for sportsmen that begins on the last Wednesday in July and extends to midnight of the following day (this year, July 26-27). The close supervision Florida ofﬁcials keep on these animals is the reason why the ﬁshery is so strong. Spearing for lobster in Florida is illegal, so your best bet is a tickle stick and a net
PALM BEACH: Hooray for the hometown. Palm Beach is perhaps the best place in all of Florida to hook into a sailﬁsh, since the island sits so close to the Gulf Stream. It doesn’t matter if you have a 90-foot sportﬁsh or an 18-foot skiﬀ, the sailﬁsh are there for the taking.
ISLAMORADA: For tarpon, the best bet is Islamorada. Take out a skiﬀ and hook into one of the most exciting gameﬁsh in the world.
JUPITER INLET: Snook love the strong current found here and congregate in droves on the north side of the inlet in a spot known to locals as the Groin.
KEY WEST: Yellowtail snapper are abundant up and down the Florida coast, but to escape the crowds, go all the way to the end. People nail snapper here in about 60 feet of water, in any size boat.
MIAMI: For a town with so many top-shelf restaurants, it’s a stroke of great luck that swordﬁsh populate the waters oﬀ the Magic City. The billed brawlers love the bottom structure there. Larger boats are recommended for ﬁshing this area as you’ll likely be trolling a large swath of water for your prey.

THESE 10 LAND AND SEA VEHICLES AND TOOLS PROMISE ENDLESS ALFRESCO FUN
Don’t call it a Jet Ski. No, this is a luxury “waterscooter.” This go-fast V11 from Dutch custom boatbuilder Vanquish Yachts offers a different take on the humble Jet Ski, with a hull that’s considerably wider (stretching almost 6 feet for added stability) and seating for three. It comes with luxury features like nautical teak-and-holly vinyl plank flooring and leather-like upholstery. It’s also very fast. Powered by a 170-hp Rotax engine and jet drive, it can rocket to a top speed of more than 55 mph, making it perfect for waterskiing, wakeboarding, or doing crazy doughnuts. It is available through Vanquish’s Fort Lauderdale U.S. headquarters, and prices start at $95,000. (vanquish-yachts.com)
FUN FACT: THE V11 WAS DESIGNED AS A TENDER FOR VANQUISH YACHTS’ $4 MILLION VQ58 MINI SUPERYACHT.
FUN FACT: PICK FROM AN ARRAY OF LILLY PULITZER PASTEL COLORS. OUR FAVORITE? PISTACHIO GREEN. OR MAYBE BUBBLEGUM.
Looking for a little Jolly fun this summer? How about cruising to the beach in an adorable, stripetopped Fiat 500 two-door runabout from Hampton Jollys? The Hamptons–based company imports restored-from-the-ground-up 1950s and ’60s Fiat Jollys from Italy that are exact replicas of the original Ghia Jolly. And the restoration is truly spectacular, from the fringed Surrey top, to the cut-down windshield and door openings, to the wicker seats and rear hamper. Don’t expect to get anywhere in a hurry: The teeny 499cc twocylinder engine produces 22 hp to give a top speed of around 50 mph. But as a head-spinning beach runabout (priced at around $85,000), nothing else compares. (hamptonjollys.com)
FUN FACT: BARLETTA LOVES PETS, SO EACH PONTOON BOAT COMES WITH A RETRACTABLE DOGGY DISH.
For family fetes on the water, it’s hard to beat the floating beach club that is a pontoon boat. And they’ve come a long way since those stripped-out, aluminum-tube deck boats of old. Take the brand-new flagship Reserve from Indiana’s Barletta Boats. With seating for 12, this 28-footer (starting at $287,595) features a sleek composite deck structure and a hydraulically lowering hardtop with an opening roof section. On deck there’s a
choice of two layouts, with the Florida-friendly version offering acres of sun pads, loungers, and more Yeti-ready cupholders than a minivan. Want tunes? Barletta worked with Harman Kardon on a disco-like sound system unique to the Reserve. To slice through the water, there are three aluminum hulls with power from either a single 350-, 400-, or 450-hp V10 Mercury Verado outboard. (barlettapontoonboats.com)
FUN FACT: HESTAN BUILDS ITS GRILLS FROM SCRATCH AT ITS FACTORY IN ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA.
It isn’t summer without an industrial-grade gas grill to sizzle those freshly caught grouper fillets.

Offered at an MSRP of $15,119, this 42-incher features 774 square inches of cooking space on the main area and 282 square inches of grilling space on the upper racks. Other nifty facets include a spring-assisted lid and motion-activated lights, an infrared burner inside the hood, and a chain-driven rotisserie that can spin up to 50 pounds. And, to add a little panache to your summer kitchen, the Hestan comes with a choice of 12 vibrant, oh-soFlorida colors including Citra Orange and Peppermint Bora Bora. (home.hestan.com)
There’s no shortage of electric bikes on the market, but one of the coolest we’ve found is this built-for-comfort Vacay beach cruiser (priced at $2,800) from legendary Australian bike builder Michael Blast. Powered by a 500-watt rear-hub electric motor and juiced by a 48-volt Samsung lithium-ion battery, it can run for up to 50 miles on a charge and at speeds of up to 22 mph. With its available step-through frame, it’s a breeze to climb onto, and its sand-ready 26-inch Duro Beach Bum tires soak up lumps and bumps with ease. (michaelblast.com)
FUN FACT: THERE’S THE OPTION OF A PADDLEBOARD CARRIER THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO CLIP YOUR SUP TO THE FRAME.
FUN FACT: ROVER TROPHY’S FOUNDER IS JEFF TAYLOR, WHO CREATED THE PIONEERING JOB WEBSITE MONSTER.COM.
Beach rides don’t come much more fun than a rugged Land Rover Defender reimagined by Connecticut-based Rover Trophy. And the two-door, open-top SS model—that’s short for Sun & Sand—is arguably the most fun, with its choice of Tesla Model 3 electric or muscley Corvette LS3 V8 power trains. Built from the ground up, they feature new Land Rover–approved galvanized chassis frames from the United Kingdom, new body panels from Turkey, and uprated brakes and suspension. Add to all that craftsmanassembled interiors and best of the best paintwork, and they’re essentially brand-new vehicles. Priced at $28,000, the cute SS has seats for six, a removable canvas roof, and boat-style teak flooring. (rovertrophy.com)
FUN FACT: THE CONCEPT WAS FIRST ANNOUNCED MORE THAN A DECADE AGO AND HAS ONLY NOW GONE INTO PRODUCTION.
When you want to beat the Florida heat and head to the hills to cool off, glamping is a great way to go. And there’s nothing cooler than the new Romotow rotating travel trailer from New Zealand design studio W2. Like some oversize USB stick, the 30-foot-long glamper features a center section that swivels hydraulically 90 degrees to create a huge outdoor patio. Inside there’s a kitchen and dining area, a bathroom with a shower, and a large bedroom. The rotation system uses electric motors powered by a lithium-ion battery bank that’s juiced by rooftop solar panels. Prices start at around $270,000. (romotow.com)
FUN FACT: CRYSTAL KAYAK COMPANY ALSO BUILDS A TRANSPARENT STAND-UP PADDLEBOARD.
Think of it as a glass-bottom boat for two. Deerfield Beach–based Crystal Kayak Company builds this seethrough canoe-kayak that’s perfect for checking out sandy-bottom sea life. Made from tough-as-nails Lexan—the same stuff used in fighter jet canopies—this sturdy and stable 11-foot watercraft weighs in at just 48 pounds, so it’s a breeze to load onto a trailer or carry on a roof rack. Each Crystal Kayak (priced at $1,800) comes with adjustable seats for two, safety floats for bow and stern to avoid that sinking feeling, and a pair of paddles. Want to paddle solo? Just unclip one of the seats and you’ll be ready to go. (crystalkayak.com)
FUN FACT: THE DESIGN OF THE FOLDING MECHANISM AND FOLDOUT SCREEN IS THE WORK OF PORSCHE DESIGN STUDIO.
Austrian electronics expert C Seed sets the standard with its remarkable 201-inch HLR 201, which is currently the world’s largest outdoor TV. At the touch of a button, the screen levitates out of its underground storage casing and unfolds its nearly 17-foot, seven-panel microLED screens in just 75 seconds. With about 8 million pixels, the picture quality is beyond astonishing, even in direct sunlight. As you might expect for such cutting-edge technology, the HLR 201 doesn’t come cheap. It currently stickers for around $600,000 before installation. Step down to the still enormous 12-foot HLR 144, and the price drops by half to around $300,000. Watching the big game will never be the same again. (cseed.tv)

Seasonal delights are on tap at Serena Pastificio in Boca Raton. This new spot in Mizner Park opened in December, in a reimagined space once occupied by Tanzy at iPic Theaters. To augment its menu rooted in traditional yet approachable Italian fare—inclusive of a scratch kitchen that churns out handmade pasta daily—Serena Pastificio recently introduced lightened spring/summer dishes that match the freshness of the seasons, says executive chef Scott Anderson. Highlights range from the gamberi e asparagi with lightly pickled sweet shrimp, asparagus,
and watermelon radish, to a whole branzino served with baby leeks and a Meyer lemon vermouth sauce. “In addition, our spring/summer menu has seen us expand our vegetarian offerings,” continues Anderson, “highlighted by the fungo maitake, featuring confit maitake mushrooms and arugula salsa verde; rigatoni di verdure, showcasing grilled eggplant, artichoke, and zucchini and accented with preserved lemon; and the gnocchi al pepe nero,” dotted with balsamic grilled wild mushrooms, arugula, Parmesan, porcini oil, and chives (serena-pastificio.com) —Mary Murray
It’s a childhood memory Toni Cariero cherishes: waiting for the Mister Softee ice cream truck to swing through the neighborhood at the end of a hot day. So, when Cariero’s brother-in-law suggested they open a business, she immediately thought of ice cream.
The Village Scoop Shack, which opened in Tequesta earlier this year, offers 20 traditional ice cream flavors and three vegan options. But it’s the drilled ice cream that stands out. “It’s a custom soft serve that starts with scooped vanilla ice cream, then we add a cup of your favorite cereal,” says Cariero, the shop’s owner and manager. “The drill crushes the cereal and pushes it throughout the ice cream.”
The result? A luxuriously dense frozen treat that tastes exactly like your cereal selection. “Unlike other soft serve ice cream where you
can only add mixes on top, drilled ice cream offers the ability to create your very own flavor that is equally distributed throughout the ice cream,” Cariero notes.
Cariero’s brother-in-law and business partner had seen the drilled ice cream concept in a New Jersey burger joint, but that spot had

Cariero upped the ante with 30 options—from Fruity Pebbles to Cap’n Crunch—displayed in dispensers worthy of your dream pantry. “I knew it would be popular with the kids, but I did not foresee the huge popularity with the adults,” Cariero explains. “It’s all about the nostalgia for them. It brings them back in time.”
WHEN ICE CREAM MEETS CEREAL, IT’S LOVE AT FIRST BITE
BY KRISTEN DESMOND LEFEVRE
New York institutions are finding homes at The Square. Harry’s, a mainstay of Manhattan’s Financial District, has opened inside the 360 Rosemary building. Owner Peter Poulakakos (son of Harry) sees similarities between West Palm Beach and Harry’s original location. “We have a trifecta of a customer base,” he says of both. “We have a vibrant business base, a vibrant residential base, and a vibrant tourism base.” When it comes to the food, think elevated steak house, with Prime steaks dry-aged for 28 days and beef Wellington carved tableside. While the culinary experience remains the same, the West Palm Harry’s deviates in design. “What we have in New York is an over-100-year-old building, which we continue to keep fresh and up to date, but we’re not changing the fabric of that building,” says Poulakakos. “Here, it’s a clean slate. Everything that I’ve ever wanted in Harry’s in New York I’m going to have here.” (harrysnyc.com)
Another new transplant from Harry’s Restaurant Group is Adrienne’s Pizzabar. Situated adjacent to Harry’s, Adrienne’s is full of natural light, anchored by an open kitchen area with a brick pizza oven, and tinged with the aroma of tomatoes, cheese, and garlic. The star here is executive chef Nick Angelis, who has perfected the art of Neapolitan and Neapolitan-American pizza. Options range from round to square, white to red, but Adrienne’s newbies should start with the Original Sicilian, which boasts a base of mozzarella, pecorino, and Parmesan primed for the toppings of your choice (a winning combo is sausage and Calabrian chili). Bookend your za with arancini—filled with fontina and finished with truffle vinaigrette—and a cannoli so heavenly, it will erase the taste of all the subpar supermarket versions that came before it.

The Dish: Angry Cashew Lobster with coconut, spicy Meyer lemon aioli, and pickled garden vegetables
The Drink: Barrel of Monks Wizard Belgium White Ale
Behind the Pairing: “The Wizard beer (ABV 5.5) is a white ale that is drinkable yet full of flavor with wheat malt. The spiciness of the yeast and tangy flavor of the malt make this a refreshing beverage and a perfect pairing that cuts through the spiciness of the sauce yet complements the flavor and butteriness of the lobster meat.”
The Dish: Lobster Bucatini with Fresno chili, pomodoro, and basil
The Drink: Ken Wright Cellars
Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon
Behind the Pairing: “Pinot Noir is a versatile wine that can pair well with steak or seafood. This single-vineyard wine, with notes of plum, blackberry, and cedar, pairs nicely with the deep, heavy, flavorful red sauce that a bucatini dish has to offer. [Given the] hints of heat throughout the dish and sweet lobster meat, this Pinot Noir has a vibrant finish that completes the dish.”
The Dish: Wagyu Tomahawk
The Drink: Old-Fashioned with Basil Hayden’s Bourbon, a sugar cube, and an orange peel, all smoked under glass Behind the Pairing: “From the charred, aged barrel that Basil Hayden sits in, to the caramel notes and black pepper, this smoked classic pairs extremely well with the charred, flavorful beef that is perfectly marbled from its Wagyu heritage and rich in flavor from the long bone attached. The heat from the bourbon will cut through the fat of the rib eye.”

SIP WITH PBI
July always starts with a bang as we gather to celebrate our nation’s independence with parades, picnics, and ﬁreworks. The dog days of summer are back, and the festivities are as hot as the weather. July boasts some more unique honoriﬁcs as well: National Grilling Month, National Ice Cream Month, National Bikini Day (July 5), and National Tequila Day (July 24) among them. If the latter entices, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy the popular Mexican spirit and toast its rich history.
Tequila dates to the sixteenth century. Legend goes that a lightning bolt struck a ﬁ eld of agave plants, setting them on ﬁ re. The ﬂ ames heated the agaves, giving them a sweet taste and a warming aroma that lent well to fermentation.
The margarita and the paloma might be the most popular tequila drinks in the United States and Mexico, respectively, but there are countless ways to savor the spirit’s various expressions. The Gabriel in downtown Miami serves both a classic margarita and the Yachtsman, which marries aged tequila with fresh pressed pineapple juice.
1 1/2 oz. Eleven20 Añejo Tequila
1/2 oz. agave simple syrup
1/2 oz. lime juice
2 oz. fresh pressed pineapple juice
Mint sprig and/or dehydrated pineapple slice for garnish
Add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a glass with fresh ice. Garnish with a mint sprig and/or dehydrated pineapple slice.
Ellen Kavanaugh of Ellen Kavanaugh Interiors wanted to see history repeat itself—with a fresh twist—for this living room that belonged to longtime clients and friends. By incorporating existing pieces with modern elements, she maintained the home’s historic integrity and elegant design, while still giving it an updated feel.
“We turned toward Alexandrie from Pierre Frey as our drapery fabric and inspiration for a reviving and unexpected color story that was the
foundation of our overall design,” says Kavanaugh. “You see the unusual combination of aquas and lavenders, and an invitation for the presence of bold patterns throughout the space.”
Kavanaugh describes the room’s aesthetic as balanced yet unique, featuring a mix-matched but collected feel. “The space is layered, inviting, and breathes a stylish and worldly tone that transcends time through the marriage of the old and new.” Palm Beach (ellenkavanaugh.com)—Liza Grant Smith

Today, nothing says glam more than gold—from the metallic curtains and glowing sconces, all topped oﬀ with a stunning gold sunburst chandelier.” Palm Beach Gardens (anniesantullidesigns.com)

THIS ARCHITECTURAL STYLE CONTRIBUTED TO THE LOOK OF PALM BEACH IN THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURYBY MARIE PENNY
Between 1925 and 1955, the Monterey style proliferated, becoming popular not only in California and Texas, but also here in Palm Beach. The style is primarily modern, with Spanish and English colonial influences as well as regional variants such as the lacy cast-iron railings commonly found in New Orleans. Its most notable distinguishing feature is the prominent cantilevered balcony, which is often made of wood, albeit the versions here boast French Creole–influenced iron rails.
X1. MONTEREY CONCEPTUAL RENDERING, CIRCA 1930S
Belford Shoumate created many designs that were never realized, including this modern Monterey-style house with extending wings and a Bermuda-style chimney.
2. MELLON RESIDENCE, 1937
Austrian-born architect John Volk designed 17 houses in the Pendleton Avenue neighborhood, 10 of which were conceived in the Monterey style. He collaborated with Arnold Construction to form Palm Beach Modern Homes, which built residences on speculation and for individual owners on Pendleton Avenue.
3. SOUTHWOOD, 1934
Marion Sims Wyeth designed Southwood for Dr. John Vietor and his wife, Jell-O heiress Eleanor Woodward Vietor, on Via Del Lago. It evokes a Southern charm unique to South Florida; The Palm Beach Post used the term “tropical colonial” to describe the style’s arrival on the island in 1936. The house was designated a landmark in 1990.

Breathwork is hardly a new concept, but it has gained popularity since the pandemic.
Boca Raton–based life and parenting coach Elise Montgomerie offers one-on-one breathwork sessions and retreats to help clients reset their nervous systems and ﬁnd balance. Here, she shares insight into this practice. (elisemontgomerie.com) —L.G.S.
PBI: What is breathwork?
Montgomerie: The basic idea of breathwork is to reset your nervous system. When your body is stressed, your nervous system goes into ﬁght, ﬂight, or freeze mode … to keep [you] safe in lifeor-death situations. Unfortunately, your nervous system doesn’t know the diﬀerence between I-95 in rush hour or a bear chasing you in the woods.
And, as we get older, not only does it take less to activate these systems, we also store more rage in our body. That is where breathwork helps. This powerful modality gives us a chance to not only reset our nervous system, but also clear past traumas from our bodies.
What are the beneﬁts?
Results include a more regulated nervous system, which has so many health beneﬁts. It improves depression and anxiety, brings more joy and overall well-being, lowers blood pressure, [supports] better focus, releases stress hormones, and improves energy and the immune system.
It is helpful to learn these techniques from a professional because of the feelings that may come up during breathwork. We store past traumas and emotions in our bodies … [and] breathwork can be a very emotional experience. If left alone, a person may not know how to bring themselves back into a state of well-being, but rather stay in the bad feelings that have surfaced. If guided properly, they will move out of old, stuck emotions, some of which they may not have consciously known. I take my clients on a guided journey to gently move between states of joy and emotional clearing.

With purple-hued foods popping up everywhere, from trendy eateries to Instagram feeds, ube is having its moment. But is the starchy root vegetable just a means to a photogenic end or does it have nutritional substance? A purple yam that is a major crop in the Philippines, ube gets its bright color from anthocyanins, a group of powerful antioxidants that research has shown may help promote heart and brain health and reduce inﬂ ammation and the risk of certain cancers. It is also a rich source of ﬁ ber and vitamin C. While ube doughnuts, milkshakes, and other sweet treats are delicious (and follow the Filipino tradition of using ube in desserts), they most likely aren’t in line with your health goals. To stay on track and harness the power of this purple powerhouse, pick up some fresh ube at a local Asian market (try Vinh Hung Oriental Market in West Palm Beach) and utilize it in healthy recipes like air-fryer ube chips or low-carb ube ice cream. —L.G.S.
Living in a tropical climate can teach you a lot about how to work with the heat. So often we brace against it, but there are certain holistic practices that can alleviate it and leave us feeling refreshed. Some methods are tried and true, like dipping into a body of water as often as possible, but the way our body absorbs heat and cools itself is also profound. When channeled into therapeutic care, as I do at my spa, this dynamic energy can create a beneﬁcial physiological response. For instance, using a warm cloth opens the pores, while applying a cold compress to the forehead can help to relieve a headache.
Some cooling methods are more subtle, however, and these have become the lifeways I’ve learned to rely on in South Florida. The ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda touts the beneﬁts of eating cooling foods during the summer—including classics like coconut, watermelon, and cucumber as well as lemon—and limiting dairy and spice. Aloe vera,
which I grow in my gardens, is another near instant cure for heat. I love to include aloe juice in smoothies and juice blends because it is composed of 99 percent water, thereby supporting hydration. An aloe spritzer with lime and mint just might become your go-to sip this season. Aloe is also an excellent source of vitamin C and helps to soothe the skin when applied topically.
Another plant remedy in rotation come summertime is chamomile. Renowned in traditional herbalism for its soothing effects, chamomile seems to pull heat right out of the skin. Studies suggest that it has mild sedative and anti-inﬂammatory properties that help to alleviate all kinds of heat, from physical to emotional. I like to keep cotton pads soaked in chamomile water in a glass container in the fridge for our family to use after an active day out in the sun.
However, my favorite way to celebrate summer’s heat is to bask in the balmy nights. I ﬁnd sweet relief in ending the day at the beach to marvel at the stars glimmering overhead, feel the cooling breeze rise from the water, and take part in the rhythm of the season. «

Duck out of the summer heat and into an arts explosion at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. In June, the museum unveiled a quartet of exhibitions, including “Benn Mitchell Photographs: Hollywood to NYC,” “Matthew Schreiber: Orders of Light,” “Sari Dienes: Incidental Nature,” and “Sri Prabha: Resonator – Reanimator,” all on view to October 22.
On the first floor, explore a multisensory interplay of works by three prolific artists. “Incidental Nature” depicts the late Sari Dienes’ efforts to capture the organic textures of the outside world and, therefore, her celebration of the inherent art that exists in the everyday. Around the corner, Hyderabad-born and Hollywoodbased artist Sri Prabha’s site-specific installation fuses Vedic philosophy and science. Hypnotizing projections, towering sculptures, saturated colors, and tricks of light take viewers on a psychedelic journey. The meditation on light continues in Matthew Schreiber’s study of his own large-scale laser light sculptures through the drawings and holograms that serve as precursors to the enchanting final products.
Benn Mitchell’s sprawling photography catalogue occupies the Spotlight Gallery upstairs. Renowned for capturing the vitality of American life, Mitchell received his first camera at age 13, sold his first image to Life at 16, and photographed Hollywood stars with unfettered access at Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles.

Escape into the whimsical scenes captured in the paintings of Cuban artist Maikel Martinez at Rosenbaum Contemporary in Boca Raton. “Maikel Martinez: New Works,” on view July 5 to September 2, presents aggregations of landscapes that the artist has witnessed in life, in dreams, and in meditations. Despite their striking photorealistic qualities, Martinez’s “dreamscapes” are creations of his mind, reflecting sensations of weightlessness (particularly in works that feature cloud formations), meditation, and solitude. Gallery admission is free and open to the public. (rosenbaum contemporary.com) —A.D.

You come from a family of leather stylists and artists. How have they influenced your pursuits?
My father opened his first store in the ’60s in Florence. My grandmother was a basket weaver. She taught me all the secrets of old Florentine artisans. I have grown up staying in the store in Piazza Pitti, smelling leather and admiring new creations. I was born to design and craft for everyone. As a child, I was surrounded by fashion, and I often watched my mother create theatrical costumes in America. She is an artist, [and I was] always getting inspiration from her in New York and the Hamptons. Also, my grandmother June was a pianist. Art was around everywhere.
Why did you decide to launch your namesake fashion brand?
It was the natural evolution of the family business, [but] I added my first name in order to be more personal. Not to mention I was the first female in the family to take over the business.
Describe your brand’s philosophy on craftsmanship.
Tell me your dreams and let me bring them to life. This is what it means to create bespoke items. They are pieces of dreams and art. When people come into the store, one of the things that makes me happy is when they say it’s been a wonderful experience. They thank me for fitting for them, no matter what body they have. I believe that
my clients should not fit my creations—my creations should fit my clients. It’s a very different concept from a normal store. I wanted to bring a bit of Florence to America and the experience of having a one-of-a-kind piece of dreams in your closet.
If you could dress anyone, who would it be and why?
I can dress anyone, that is what matters to me. I can work with anyone to make their dream piece come to life.
What are some pieces in your wardrobe that you can’t travel without?
My Sophia bag, designed with the exclusive intrecciato optical technique; my JT sandals; and my Alba reversible jacket, [which is] lightweight and perfect to travel in style.
What’s next for the Jennifer Tattanelli brand?
Runways and special collaborations. Stay tuned!
Splitting her time between Italy, Palm Beach, and the Hamptons, this designer brings the essence of Italian craftsmanship to AmericaThe Jennifer Tattanelli collection boasts patent leather pumps, napa leather sneakers, and purses with an intrecciato weaving technique.
