From the Publisher


Our October issue is all about home improvement and interior design—content that could not be more relevant for my life right now. I recently replaced the roof of my house, a project akin to buying new tires for a car: You know you need it, but it’s not exactly a lustful purchase. That’s why, to go with my new roof, I am planning to renovate my kitchen—now that’s fun. With our area’s new housing developments, improved economy and, therefore, higher home values, many residents are on a decorating and remodeling tear. Certainly, there is no shortage of top showrooms in Palm Beach County to buy home necessities, including Sklar Furnishings in Boca Raton, which has a knockout selection of modern and contemporary pieces, and Downsview Kitchens in Juno Beach, which can create your dream kitchen. In addition, there are many smaller, independent yet fabulous places to outfit your home. Excentricities has four locations throughout Palm Beach County and carries a vast selection of “Florida chic” pieces—plus, the store offers complete design services. If you’re into natural beauty and a relaxed vibe, Rustic Rooster in Delray Beach has beautifully made furniture and accessories. And Pioneer Linens, with more than 100 years in business in West Palm Beach, can keep you stocked on all manner of luxe linens and specialty bath soaps and decor. Whether you are furnishing a new residence, redecorating an existing one or simply living fully in your memory-filled home, know the best decor can’t be bought. Cheers to creating a house of laughter, love and happiness.

Editor’s Picks

There is nothing like a garden. The rustle of leaves in a breeze, the scent of freshly opened blooms and the profusion of color bring us closer to nature, calming the spirit and inspiring the mind. Add to that an educational element—such as the appreciation of environmental wonders or the contemplation of urban oases—and the impact becomes even more powerful. Last season, I was fortunate to attend a luncheon at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens introducing the new Gardens Conservancy. Frances Fisher, who led the effort to form the conservancy (and who graces our cover this month), spoke about these very things. Through school and community partnerships as well as educational events, the conservancy aims to preserve the gardens’ history and beauty for subsequent generations. As the mom of young children, I couldn’t agree more with the group’s mission. Our community is founded on gems like the ANSG, whose preservation is our collective duty. This is why in this issue we single out the “Ladies of the Garden,” five of the founding board members of the conservancy. In the article on page 48, they tell us why they are involved and their vision for the future. Read it and be inspired. The notion of service is fundamental in our community, and it takes many forms. In business, service to not only clients but also to one’s own people is the hallmark of leadership. No one personifies this more than Paul Leone, who celebrates his twentieth year as president of The Breakers. In “No Reservations,” he tells writer Scott Eyman, “Instead of me being on top, I serve my team.” Simple, yet profound. Turn to page 58 to learn more about one of our community’s greatest “servant leaders.” With fall on everyone’s mind this month, we also offer a look at all things autumnal—from haute Halloween candy to a super-fun glimpse at fall fashion. The season’s sixties-inspired looks are perfectly juxtaposed with the Norton Museum of Art’s “Wheels and Heels” exhibit. Turn to page 62 for a grown-up (but still cheeky) take on playing dress-up. Enjoy the issue!

Dress it Up Every woman staring at a social calendar filled with charity events and gala commitments has felt the same mix of excitement and fear over one looming concern: how many ensembles she needs to survive the season. That’s where Diana Alava comes to the rescue. The West Palm Beach resident and model founded Francia Special Occasion Dresses, a boutique of designer gowns available to borrow. Essentially a local version of Rent the Runway, the concept allows clients to reserve a dress for a fee for as long as needed. Women can also sell or exchange their own gowns for credit toward a rental or, if they find themselves regularly returning to the West Palm shop, enroll in Francia’s membership program. As a way to wear dozens of looks without filling the closet, this is a social-season win. (561284-5156,

If growing your own produce seems like an overwhelming project, we’re confident the smart, chic gardening tools from Homegrown Gourmet will turn your thumb green in no time. The Delray Beach-based company offers a variety of products to grow, serve and store veggies, including housewares and devices for indoor gardening. Two of our favorite items are the Harvest window cedar grow box ($39.99), which comes with an herb snip, and a drying and infusing station ($69.99, below) stocked with four jars and twine—perfect for creating oils, vinegars and honey. Consuming wholesome ingredients— and knowing where they come from—is a rising priority among Americans, which is also why we love Homegrown Gourmet’s Project Restore for a Wholesome Future, an initiative to build more community gardens. With every product purchase, a percentage of proceeds benefits the mission. (561-272-0018,


Every summer Tuesday evening, four friends dressed in crisp, white outfits and gathered at a manicured lawn in West Palm Beach to attempt jump shots, Irish peels—or at least a shot through a wicket. This team of smartly attired gents consists of Scott Velozo, Stephen Mooney, Ross Meltzer and Victor Figueredo—amateur croquet enthusiasts who play at the National Croquet Center. This was Velozo and Mooney’s third year participating in the center’s annual summer league; they needed an opposing pair and invited Meltzer and Figueredo to join. “The perception of croquet is that it’s a backyard game your grandmother bought with S&H Green Stamps,” Velozo says. “But there is a strategy and a skill to the game.” The sport is played in teams of two. Each athlete has a personal mallet and ball, and teams receive a point when a player is the first to hit his or her ball through a wicket (a hoop, usually made of iron, staked into the ground). The team that scores the most points after completing the course wins. Velozo loves the tradition of the game, which originated in England. (Plus: “What other sport can you play while enjoying a cocktail?” he adds.) The National Croquet Center offers free lessons every Saturday at 10 a.m., but to understand the unspoken rules of this dignified sport, Velozo offered his croquet etiquette tips.

1. The traditional “uniform” of the sport is all-white attire—“perhaps because white is the one color everyone looks good in,” he says. “I just like to add a pop of color with a ribbon belt.” 2. Shoes must have a flat sole as not to damage the greens. “White bucks are the perfect shoe for the traditional look,” Velozo says. 3. “Have fun, and never take it too seriously. As in all team sports, good sportsmanship is a must,” he says. “Often, you must knock your opponent’s ball out of play, but it’s all in good fun.”

TEXAS REDUX An unexpected renaissance is gripping pockets of the Lone Star State, rebranding Texas as a catalyst of cool By Paul Rubio

Odit eicitatiore nobitat unt. Ximus, verorec atatem. Agnis autet archicilia que pelluptatus di ut vel ipiciend

Deep in the heart of Austin, Hotel Ella ( marks the latest entry in the city’s burgeoning hotel scene. Evolving from a cute college town to a metropolitan refuge for Texas eccentrics, the city embraces its slogan spirit of “Keep Austin Weird,” and Hotel Ella is no different. An adaptive reuse of a Greek Revival mansion, the 47-room hotel keeps history in style. The former abode of Goodall H. Wooten—son of University of Texas founder Thomas Dudley Wooten—and his wife, Ella, juxtaposes tradition and minimalism, resulting in a space where original family portraits peer over edgy sculptures such as Barbara Segal’s Obsessive Compulsive, a 2,000-pound marble Chanel handbag. Rife with modern works throughout, the hotel artfully blends with its trendy neighbors: the Contemporary Austin, the Blanton Museum of Art and the Mexic-Arte Museum.

Above: A serene terrace and the horse stables at the Inn at Dos Brisas. Below: Scenes from the art-centric Joule Hotel in Dallas.

Two hours east of Austin, the intimate Inn at Dos Brisas ( comprises 313 acres of prime Texas Hill Country, including a new 42-acre organic farm that’s placed the Inn at the forefront of the Texas farm-to-table movement; the in-house restaurant has even coined nomenclature for its bespoke cuisine: pitchfork to plate. Garden-centric menus utilize the 400-plus fruits and vegetables harvested on-

site, complemented by locally raised beef and seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, flown in fresh daily. Beyond exalted cuisine, the Inn at Dos Brisas is a sanctuary of escapism—a sprawling ranch of Relais & Châteaux pedigree shared among nine luxuriant units, each inspired by Spanish manor design and opening to a private world of outdoor enthusiasm. With horseback pursuits in the world-famous equestrian center as well as fishing, clay target shooting, cycling and hunting, the Inn at Dos Brisas is an unapologetic immersion into the Texas good life. Farther north in Dallas, a citywide obsession with modern art is propelling the former oil industry megalopolis into jet-set stardom. Dallas brims with panache, as evident in the funky Bishop Arts District (home to more than 60 independent shops and galleries), the rising Design District and the world-renowned Nasher Sculpture Center and Dallas Museum of Art headlining the Art District. There’s even a hotel dedicated to the arts: the Joule Hotel

(, a Depression-era bank building turned five-star celebration of high design and riveting art by designer and architect Adam D. Tihany (who also transformed The Breakers’ Florentine Room into HMF). The Joule’s wow factor is palpable, beginning with Tony Tasset’s 30-foot Eye gazing at the hotel’s façade and continuing to the lobby’s art-in-motion cogged wheels and imagery of global subway scenes projected onto the walls. With art collections displayed across the hotel (including works by Andy Warhol and Tony Cragg), the haute design of the 164 guest rooms and eye-opening architectural elements like the cantilevered, rooftop swimming pool, the Joule ambushes the senses. Art isn’t the only thing defining Dallas these days. Texans also pride themselves on hospitality, history and social status, all of which converge at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek ( Tucked into the city’s most prestigious neighborhood, Uptown Dallas, the 143-room hotel is built around a European-inspired mansion that has hosted the likes of Tennessee Williams and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Expect the Rosewood hallmarks of stellar service, elegantly appointed suites and high thread counts alongside experiences often reserved for A-listers, such as the live music sessions at the Mansion Bar and Chef Bruno Davaillon’s five-course menus at the Mansion Restaurant.

WINE TRAILS In 1659, Texas became home to North America’s first vineyard. Fast-forward 350 years, and the state is just now sobering up and capitalizing on its diverse topography and microclimates to emerge onto the New World wine scene. Earlier this year, Wine Enthusiast ranked Texas Hill Country the world’s No. 3 Best Wine Travel Destination of 2014—a

Raise a glass at Delaney Vineyards and Winery, a replica of an eighteenth-century French chateau that offers tastings from its vineyards, including the 10 acres enveloping the estate. If Grapevine whets your palate for Texas wines, consider a more in-depth trip through Hill Country, beginning west of Austin and continuing beyond Fredericksburg. Fortytwo vineyards dot this picturesque region, and while the experience isn’t quite as polished as California, the rewards and stories are always greater on the road less traveled. coveted list shared with Mendoza, Argentina and Barossa Valley, Australia. Soon after, several Texas wineries—most notably McPherson Cellars in Lubbock and Becker Vineyards in Stonewall—took home multiple awards at national and international wine competitions. Given the state’s immense size and scattered vineyards (4,400 acres of grape country spread over eight American Viticulture Areas), developing a tourism infrastructure has posed challenges for Texas wine country. The solution: Foster a central location for showcasing Texas’ liquid gold. Enter the charming 36 square-mile microcity of Grapevine (grape, located near the DallasFort Worth International Airport, that’s now the tourist hub of the Texas wine industry. Popular as day trips on the Dallas circuit, Grapevine’s seven eclectic wineries create a memorable urban wine trail.

FOODIE AND COCKTAIL CULTURE Independent of Texas’ mounting wine profile, sister cities Dallas and Austin have also embraced the global foodie and artisanal cocktail revolution. Think: the craft beer movement, the small-batch vodka movement, chef-driven restaurants, ethnic eateries and experimental flavor combinations that border on genius. At Sway ( in Austin, named a Top 50 Restaurant by Bon Appetit magazine, journey to remote reaches of Thailand in a seductive, contemporary setting and delight in incredible prawn miange (prawn, toasted coconut and grapefruit wrapped in betel leaf), som tam (green papaya salad) and salt-andpepper calamari. At American brasserie CBD Provisions ( in downtown Dallas, experience mixology at its finest with daring options like the mescal-heavy Dill Maguey or more conservative choices like Sloe Park Swizzle, a Texas take on the mojito using gin and lemon. Afterwards, feast on sublime Southern dishes such as black-eyed pea hummus, family-style whole day catch in sausageand-okra gumbo, and pan-roasted quail. At Pakpao (, a petite Dal-

Old meets new: the King Cole Bar & Salon

An Icon Reborn

A Manhattan landmark gets a modern makeover— but its heart remains steadfast By Daphne Nikolopoulos

The iconic St. Regis New York (above) recently unveiled reimagined spaces, including the King Cole Bar & Salon, where guests can find the original Red Snapper (right) and Manhattaninspired dishes like everything-crusted salmon (below).

The Old King Cole mural has a rich history—and a secret.



042_WEEKENDER_1014.indd 42

Everyone has heard of the Bloody Mary—but only New Yorkers know the Red Snapper. The two are really one and the same, but the story goes something like this: In 1934, a well-to-do Russian named Serge Obolensky asked Fernand Petiot, the barman at the St. Regis New York, to recreate a vodka and tomato juice cocktail Petiot had invented in Paris. Petiot, who was employed at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris when he first dreamed up the recipe, responded with a concoction he christened Red Snapper. Others jumped on that cocktail bandwagon, renaming the drink Bloody Mary, but the St. Regis—always an original—held fast to the name, which not only has survived to this day but also celebrates 80 years this month. In a celebration that goes beyond New York, St. Regis patrons nationwide can enjoy a Red Snapper, or some version of it, throughout October. And the King Cole Bar & Salon, now overseen by Chef John DeLucie, will offer a special anniversary menu with recipes from beloved city restaurants like The Lion, The Dutch, Tipsy Parson, Crown and Fat Radish. It’s a good time to celebrate. The King Cole recently underwent an extensive renovation, transforming into a lounge concept where classic libations are offered alongside an inspired menu. The iconic Old King Cole mural, painted by Maxfield Parrish in 1906, has also been restored so it can be revered by new generations of New Yorkers. The salon, located off the hotel’s lobby, features an open fireplace and intimate seating. The

The lounge

classic architectural details—marble columns, gilded millwork, dentil moldings—are now infused with a modern flair: Think uptown meets downtown. DeLucie’s menu reflects this concept. Dishes like wild smoked salmon with a crust made from an “everything” bagel are decidedly New York, while others—grilled lamb merguez with roasted grapes, for example—have a global vibe. One thing that hasn’t changed is “the secret.” Look closely at the Old King Cole mural, and you may just guess the famous mystery. A caveat: It may take a Red Snapper or two to get into the right frame of mind. (, stregis, 212-753-4500) «

Una Piccola Supercar

Alfa Romeo finally returns to the United States with its high-tech 4C mini-rocket. Will it be amore?

By Howard Walker Who didn’t tumble head over heels in lust with the fire-truck red Alfa Romeo Spider convertible in the 1967 film The Graduate? The vision of the oh-so-pretty Spider Duetto roadster, a fresh-faced Dustin Hoffman behind the wheel and a magical Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack in the background did wonders for Alfa Romeo’s stateside image and sales. It didn’t matter the Spider was about as powerful as a Toro ride-on mower—and offered roughly the same kind of driving thrills. It was Italian, red and a convertible.

Alas, since then, Alfa has tried in vain to seduce Americans with such junkers as the 75 and 164 sedans and a past-its-sell-by date Alfa Spider Graduate special edition. By 1995, Alfa Romeo’s tenure on American soil was toast. There were endless promises of a triumphant comeback. In 2008, Alfa shipped in two gorgeous Alfa-badged supercars: the 8C Competizione coupe and 8C Spider. But by 2010, it was arrivederci all over again. Now, Alfa is back—sort of. Sales have just begun for the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe, a bottle rocket of fun and feistiness that seemingly picks up where the Lotus Elise left off.

POWER FILE PRICE: From $69,095 ENGINE: 1.7-liter turbo 4-cylinder POWER: 237 hp TORQUE: 258 pound-feet TRANSMISSION: 6-speed manual automatic 0-60: 4.5 seconds TOP SPEED: 160 mph LENGTH/WIDTH: 157.5/73.5 inches WEIGHT: 2,465 pounds WHY WE LOVE IT: Because this fun-filled dynamo brings Alfa Romeo back to the States.

The plan is to relaunch Alfa in the United States with 500 of the uncreatively titled Alfa 4C Launch Edition. These individually numbered cars with forged wheels and fancier trim will sticker at $69,095. If those versions fly off the shelf, the 4C Coupe will go on sale at a more appealing $55,195. For now, Alfas will be sold by 86 mostly Fiat and Maserati dealers, with whispered targets of around 1,200 units in a year. Make no mistake, at 55 grand, the 4C is a veritable Kmart Blue Light Special simply because it’s the only car in its class to feature an expensive carbon-fiber monocoque chassis. This is Formula 1 technology—the way Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini and pretty much all other supercar creators build their models. Its benefit? The carbon-fiber tub itself tips the scales at a mere 236 pounds. Even with the suspension, engine, transmission and single cup holder, the car weighs just 2,465 pounds.

046_HIGHROAD_1014.indd 47

As any auto racer worth his Piloti driving shoes will assure, the less a car weighs, the faster it will go; the quicker it corners, the more immediately it stops. This little Alfa 4C does all that and way more. Power comes from a mid-mounted 1.7-liter turbocharged and direct-injected fourbanger. It’s mated to a six-speed twin dry clutch automated manual transmission that sends all 237 horses to the rear wheels. And boy, is it quick—as though fired from a circus cannon. Click the stopwatch and 60 mph comes up from standstill in fewer than 4.5 seconds. Sitting what feels like half an inch from the ground makes it seem even quicker. Turn that flat-bottomed steering wheel— yowza. There’s no power assistance here, nothing to dilute or anesthetize the inputs. It’s just pure, racecar-like precision. The 4C’s styling is pretty but not gorgeous like the boat-tailed Duetto or the 8C

Competizione. It looks a little too toy-like, as though it shrunk in the wash. Also questionable is the logic behind launching the 4C in the United States as a coupe and not a convertible. In a car like this, drivers want to see and be seen, feel the wind on their faces and enjoy the unfettered snap, crackle and pop of the awesome exhaust note. Maybe instead of investing in that fancy carbon fiber body, Alfa should have simply spent its money on funding The Graduate Part 2: Mrs. Robinson’s Revenge. «

FrancEs Fisher

Growing up in Alabama, Frances Fisher experienced Ann Norton’s work through family friends and local art, but it wasn’t until years later—when her son began attending events at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens—that Fisher discovered the value of Norton’s legacy. In December 2013, Fisher spearheaded the formation of the Gardens Conservancy, a philanthropic organization dedicated to preserving and sharing ANSG with the community. Fisher believes the conservancy’s power lies in the diversity of its members. “We present a variety of interests and great strengths, and we all care deeply about the community [and] the potential the gardens have to enhance the educational, cultural and historical landscape,” she says.

Fisher is photographed in the gardens’ north section, where native palms and trees highlight Norton’s brick sculptures. One of the conservancy’s first accomplishments was hiring Director of Horticulture Paul Milsom. Milsom, whose father and grandfather were gardeners, is passionate about maintaining ANSG. “I like to see people enjoying the gardens,” he says.

9/2/14 5:13 PM

SUSAN KEENAN For local marketing maven Susan Keenan, a business partnership was her entrée into ANSG. “I’ve lived here for 20 years, and I hadn’t really known that much about the gardens,” she says. “I walked in here, and it was like walking into a secret paradise.” Keenan approaches her involvement in the conservancy from a business perspective, aiming to strengthen existing partnerships and forge new ones. “I would like ANSG to get more involved with businesses, associations and community-minded organizations. … This garden offers so much, and I just hope the community comes to know more about it,” she says.

Keenan stands in the gardens’ patio area adjacent to Norton’s former home, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Though the majority of the artwork on property is by Norton, this patio often displays pieces by other artists, like this sculpture, Digital Daffodil, by Edwina Sandys. 50 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

CYNTHIA SULZBERGER  Like Fisher, Cynthia Sulzberger came to the gardens through her children. ANSG neighbors the Palm Beach Day Academy—children’s laughter can often be heard traveling through the breeze—and the organizations work together on many events, including the school’s Teddy Bear Picnic for kindergarteners. Sulzberger attended the event with her daughter six years ago, but it was the garden’s annual Festival of Trees that won her over. “That was the most magical night,” she recalls. “To be in this beautiful garden with these beautiful trees—I was pinching myself.” As a reading specialist, Sulzberger advocates for the gardens’ Literacy Days, which help underprivileged students discover the joys of reading and writing. 52

Sulzberger is photographed in the gardens’ social hub, with one of the property’s most prominent sculptures looming large in the background. It sits inside a koi pond, a pet project Milsom started earlier this year. He first refurbished the pool, a longtime fixture on the property, before releasing 100 inch-and-a-half-long fish.


048_GARDEN_1014.indd 52

8/29/14 10:35 AM


For Sally Soter, the real draw at ANSG is the art; she counts Norton’s studio as one of her favorite spots on the property and believes guests can receive an education simply by communing with Norton’s sculptures. “You can learn a lot here. … It’s not only a place where you can walk around and enjoy the scenery,” she says. The conservancy is dedicated to bringing this educational aspect of the gardens to as many people as possible through community enrichment initiatives like the Literacy Days, as well as a burgeoning horticultural program run by Milsom.

These figure sculptures stand apart from the other works, and austere foliage augments their magnificence. When Norton was planning the gardens with Sir Peter Smithers, they decided flora shouldn’t distract from the art but rather enhance it. “This is the important stuff,” Milsom notes. “These statues will be here in 100 years’ time.” 54

Magical. That is how Karyn Lamb describes ANSG. “I use the word ‘magical’ so often when I speak of the gardens because there is no other way of explaining how amazing it is,” she says. Through the conservancy’s fundraising efforts, Lamb believes the members will be able to expose more people to the magic and history of Norton and the gardens. “It’s just a great history lesson,” she says. “Its sights, scents, all the details, her studio—everything she left, she left in a purposeful way so future generations could enjoy what she was able to accomplish.” «

A variety of palms and electricpurple bougainvillea frame Lamb, who stands at the corridor between ANSG’s south and north sections. Covering 2.16 acres, ANSG houses 300 species of tropical palms. Norton was a passionate environmentalist, and the gardens represent her foresight to preserve this slice of heaven amid high rises for generations.

Reservations For Paul Leone, The Breakers is more than his place of business— it’s a home

By Scott Eyman Photography by Jason Myers


Paul Leone, of Palm Beach via Brooklyn, Long Island and Kentucky, lives in a frame cottage built in 1905 on the grounds of The Breakers Hotel. The accommodations are exclusive, but they’re also appropriate— Leone has served as the president of The Breakers for the last 20 years. The bar is set extraordinarily high for a historic luxury hotel like The Breakers. Customers expect everything to be perfect, and they expect it right now. Invariably, they get it, due in part to nearly 90 years of accumulated tradition as well as Leone’s aforementioned standards. That is as it should be. The Breakers was rebuilt in 1926 after fire destroyed its wooden predecessor of the same name, which makes the resort the longest continuously operating business in Florida. The hotel’s lavish Mediterranean design and spacious layout have been copied to some degree by several establishments of nearly equal fame, notably the Hotel Nacional in Havana. Leone’s principles and high expectations for the resort—and the unwavering execution of them—earned him the title of 2013 Independent Hotelier of the World, a coveted recognition from Hotels magazine. Throughout his 20 years at the helm, Leone’s mantra has been simple: “Continuous improvement. Our guests consume every

improvement we bring on,” he says. “You would think that after 20 years and $250 million worth of [enhancements], the job would be done. But it’s never done. ‘Very good’ isn’t good enough; it has to be great. If you let up at this level, you fall behind very quickly. We learned that in the 1980s, when the company was more into real estate than hotels.” Leone is speaking of a dark period when the hotel lost its coveted fifth Mobil star, and the building began to fray at the edges. What started out as a restoration philosophy to make up for lost time and lost customers instead became a core strategy—reinvesting at an extraordinary level, as with HMF, The Breakers’ superb restaurant that represents a beautiful amalgam of past and present. Leone became president of The Breakers when he was 36, the culmination of a journey as a hotelier that began in Kentucky, where he worked in a $15-a-night operation run by his mother and stepfather. Surprisingly, the lessons Leone learned in Kentucky apply in Palm Beach. “A successful hotel of any size has to have an intimate relationship with its guests,” he says. “It’s not just checking people in and sending them to their rooms. If you know your customers and serve them better, you get a higher degree of loyalty.

You would think that after 20 years and $250 million worth of improvements, the job would be done. But it’s never done.”

Leone, who met his wife at The Breakers, lives with his family in an early twentiethcentury cottage on the resort’s grounds.

058-PAUL LEONE-1014.indd 61

“What I learned at the hotel in Kentucky is that every dollar counts. I don’t own this business, but I treat it as if I own it. With any hotel, you’re managing money as well as great service, and you’re also managing impeccable cleanliness. Staying in that $15-a-night hotel was just like staying in our home.” Leone was trained as a CPA, so money is part of his DNA, but he sees The Breakers as something above and beyond an occupation. What started as a job has become his life’s work. “I’m just as excited by the laundry room in the guts of the building as I am by the lobby,” he says. “But my favorite place is the Mediterranean Ballroom, where my wife and I had our wedding reception 23 years ago.” It seems fitting that Leone met his wife, Kathy, at The Breakers. They have four sons: two in college at Chapel Hill, with the other two split between St. Andrews in Boca Raton and Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts. When the president’s job was offered to Leone 20 years ago, he wrote a 24-page food and beverage business strategy overnight. He decided the key to restoring the hotel to its once-ubiquitous stature was learning how to hire the right people, whom he defines as “people with energy and attitude and ability. I’m much more focused on behavior than skills. Skills can be developed; attitude is much harder. What I tell people is, ‘We don’t care how much you know until we know how much you care.’ We talk more about making a difference than we do about making a budget.” Leone refers to his management philosophy as “servant leadership,” expressed through “loose/tight control. When I hear executives say the most important thing is a satisfied customer, I cringe. Instead of me being on top, I serve my team. Team satisfaction drives guest satisfaction—how can a disgruntled staff make customers happy? I want our staff to treat each other as well as they treat the guests.” In line with this, even the most rudimentary job at The Breakers entails multiple interviews, with serious input from human resources. Luxury hotels are not only capital intensive but labor intensive, too. In the case of The Breakers, that translates to a staff of 2,000. During the Great Recession, convention business all but disappeared, with a 21 percent drop in

revenue and a 52 percent drop in profits. The hotel lost 400 staff members, mostly due to attrition and restricted hiring. “We had a strong balance sheet, with a lot of cash, so we were able to focus on how to capitalize on the situation as opposed to panicking,” Leone says. “By the end of the recession, we had grown our market share, and our leisure business also grew.” Leone is a lean, dynamic man, Italian on both sides of the family—his father drove a laundry truck, his mother was a New York City police officer. As with most Italian homes, cooking was taken very seriously in Leone’s family, and he in turn puts a high priority on quality food at the hotel. “Cooking is about quality ingredients, and if you have those you don’t have to over-prepare the food,” he says. He signs off on every item on every menu at The Breakers—partly out of pride, partly out of good business sense: “Many great hotels don’t have great food, so people go off the property to eat,” he explains. It’s that attention to detail, combined with finely honed hotelier’s instincts, that has earned him such respect from his Palm Beach peers. “Paul has done a fantastic job of reviving the structure as well as the brand,” says John Blades, executive director of the Flagler Museum. “Before he took over, they had a lot of problems structurally as well as operationally. They hadn’t really kept up.” Dennis Grady, president of the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, adds, “The Breakers is now an international brand, and Paul is one of the best managers of a resort property in the country. I credit his keen business mind, the way he can balance the needs of the customer with the needs of the company.” Leone is now 56, an age when most professionals are looking to gauge planned retirements. But Leone is different—he is a person who has found his calling. Currently, he has no plans to walk away from the palace on the edge of the sea. Leone usually works 55-hour weeks; on a morning when he walks from his home to the ocean to go standup paddleboarding, he typically spots about 15 items he’ll follow up on later that day. As he puts it, “I’m always rigging for bad weather.” « | OCTOBER 2014

Colin and Natascha Clark celebrate their twentieth anniversary in true international fashion To understand the romantic story of Colin and Natascha Clark, peek into the pages of their well-worn passports. The two met in Hong Kong, married in Austria and lived in Singapore, Bali, Bangkok, England and Texas before settling in West Palm Beach three years ago. The Clarks love to entertain and especially enjoy hosting themed dinner parties, so it only made sense the celebration of their twentieth wedding anniversary was inspired by the place of their first encounter: the lobby of the

074_COLIN_1014.indd 75

Regent Hotel Hong Kong (now the InterContinental Hong Kong) in 1991. “We met when Natascha asked me to cash a check,” recalls Scotland-born Colin, 51, the general manager of the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, who has held a nearly 25-year international career with the company. “Three weeks later we moved in together, and we married in 1994.” Natascha, the director of global account management for SIRVA, an international relocation management company, is originally | OCTOBER 2014

from Vienna, Austria, and has worked and lived in 10 countries on four continents. Her experience of interacting with people from all cultures is invaluable in her daily work, which she handles from home when not traveling. “Since we are both international and have lived that way for so long, Colin and I like to mingle with friends who are well traveled and know how to enjoy life,” says Natascha, 46. “We have built relationships over the years, and we love to entertain old and new friends in our home and garden.” Their Asian-themed anniversary dinner celebrated how the couple had fallen in love, raised daughter Nadja (now 18 and a student at the University of Central Florida in Orlando) and lived happily for 13 years in different parts of Asia. “We socialized with locals,” Colin recalls. “In Hong Kong, we had so many Chinese friends that we got a true sense of the place. We like oriental food and still eat our meals Asian-style, on a low table using our own chopsticks. And we want to share our experiences with our Florida-based friends.” Although Natascha usually cooks for the couple’s home parties, this special dinner was catered by Adam Johnson, chef de cuisine of catering and conference services at the Four Seasons, who was eager to incorporate many ingredients for the oriental fare. The resort’s florist, Cary McKain of Camden Gardens, further set the party’s tone with an assortment of white Casablanca lilies, white phalaenopsis orchids and various types of grass and moss. Because each is originally from a cold-weather climate, Natascha and Colin relish their South Florida lifestyle and enjoy entertaining year-round, especially outside. “We love the lushness and tropical feel here,” Colin says. “We like to cycle, run, swim, play tennis and kayak in the Intracoastal, then host evening parties in our garden. Our door is always open, and we entertain casually every three weeks.” Their anniversary party began in the living room, which is dominated by colorful art, a Balinese gong and a large antique teak coffee table. Guests arrived eager to share the couple’s happiness and generosity. “Colin and Natascha are such a fun and dynamic couple,” says Paget Kirkland Critchett, owner of Kirkland Event and Destination Services in Lake Worth. “I love coming to their parties and listening to the stories of their travels. I thought I had covered all corners of the world until I met Colin.” Other guests were Timothy Johnson and Fernando Wong of Fernando Wong Outdoor Living Design; Hayley Denman, designer of the Hayley Style jewelry line; Paget’s husband, John Critchett, owner of Palm Beach Tours and Transportation; David Sabin, president of Brickhouse Public Relations; and Four Seasons Marketing Director Tony Rodriguez with his wife, Susan, a realtor with Keller Williams.

“Natascha and I work as a team at our parties because we have the same interests and both like storytelling, so we play off of each other in conversation,” Colin says. Left: Nasi goreng was one of the first courses served alfresco. | OCTOBER 2014

Right: The couple served a cheese fondue prepared with gherkins, onions and olives. Below: Johnson prepared Peking duck with carrots, cucumbers and green scallions in sweet soy along with a Thai green papaya salad.

“We are easy to talk to and both enjoy giving our friends a grand time,” Colin says. “We love spending time with Colin and Natascha,” Wong says. “Talking to them about their work and experiences abroad—especially hearing their multinational and cultural anecdotes—is so fascinating. I admire their diversity and feel so fortunate that we were able to celebrate this special occasion with them.” Upon arrival, guests enjoyed libations, including perennial Clark favorites Louis Roederer Champagne and Chinese Tsingtao beer. Appetizers of Vietnamese summer rolls and dim sum were served with a variety of sweet ginger, chili oil and soy sauces. During conversations about summer travel, work and the upcoming season, guests were escorted to the illuminated garden for dinner. The colorful table was appointed with green and white linens, square plates featuring botanical designs and jewel-toned glass bowls. The meal began with spicy tom yum, a Thai sour soup, followed by Peking duck with carrots, cucumbers and green scallions in sweet soy; steamed whole fish with 78

ginger, green onions and shallots; nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice); and Thai green papaya salad. The Clarks then surprised guests by presenting a pot of cheese fondue prepared with gherkins, onions and olives and served with fresh baguettes. “In one of our apartments, we had no room to cook so we enjoyed pots of cheese fondue,” Natascha says. “We wanted to recreate that memory for our anniversary party.” After the delightful meal ended with green tea sorbet, coconut tofu sorbet and white tea ice cream, the hosts conducted a tea ceremony using a pot and tiny cups purchased in Hong Kong roughly 22 years ago. They supplemented the tea service with coral and white Villeroy and Boch Amazonia sake-style cups and saucers. “This tea set has traveled,” Natascha laughs. “We lived in Bali the longest—for five years—and have such wonderful memories of enjoying tea in so many different places that we had to use the set.” The evening came to a close once the tea had been sipped, but the anniversary celebration wasn’t over for the Clarks: In their typical fashion, Natascha and Colin jetted to Hawaii the next day for a romantic trip, creating more exotic memories that will surely inspire their next dinner party. «

Holy Mole

081-TASTE OPENER-1014.indd 81



Mexican cuisine is made with humble ingredients, yet Cantina Laredo always finds a way to elevate traditional meals into sophisticated dishes. Case in point: The restaurant’s chicken mole is brightened in flavor and color with the addition of mangos for a tropical, Floridian taste. The sauce isn’t as sweet as a typical mole, which makes the entire dish more enjoyable. Other unique ingredients are honey, Dos Equis XX Special Lager and, fitting for fall, toasted pumpkin seeds.

Facts about she-crab soup

At La Nouvelle Maison in Boca Raton, entrepreneur Arturo Gismondi has assembled a mini-reunion of personnel from Palm Beach’s Café L’Europe: Chef Gregory Howell, who manned the stoves from 2005 to 2009, is joined by acclaimed pastry chef Stephanie Steliga. Gismondi’s latest venture is a few blocks from the site of the now-defunct, legendary La Vieille Maison. Like its namesake, La Nouvelle Maison consists of a series of small rooms that flow into each other; the sleek, contemporary decor culminates in the Parisian dining room, dominated by a colorful art deco mural. Howell’s light touch begins with starters such as delicate house-cured salmon garnished with trout roe and crème fraiche or chunks of perfectly cooked lobster placed atop a timbale of crunchy celery root. Modern dishes such as European turbot on a bed of braised fennel coexist with classics including steak frites and roasted duck à l’orange. Steliga’s artful and hedonistic desserts alone are worth the trip. They include hot and cold souffles, a twenty-first-century take on the traditional cherry clafoutis and the dome-shaped chocolate-hazelnut dacquoise: layers of hazelnut cream, chocolate mousse, dulce de leche and nougatine praline ice cream—an indulgence that easily justifies extra time at the gym. (561-338-3003, —Mark Spivak

1. Residents of the Chesapeake Bay, South Carolina Lowcountry and Georgia coast claim to have invented the dish. 2. According to culinary historian John Martin Taylor, it is likely descended from a Scottish crab and rice soup called Partan Bree. 3. Although it was originally made from female crabs, the orange tinge of the soup commonly comes from crab roe. 4. The American version first appeared around 1910, when the host of a Charleston dinner for President William Howard Taft added crab eggs to the soup course. 5. The best spots to grab a bowl locally are Ironwood Steak and Seafood at the PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens and at True in Boca Raton, which is owned by Maryland native Frank Hawkins. —M.S.

Sense of Place The Mediterranean-like climate of California’s Central Coast makes Paso Robles ideal for creating Rhône-style wines By Mark SPivak

El Paso de Robles, the full name of the area known as Paso Robles, translates to “The Pass of the Oaks.” This wine-producing giant in California has an intriguing history, beginning with the nearly extinct Salinan Indians, who knew it as The Hot Springs long before the Spanish missionaries arrived. The tribe flourished in California’s Central Coast in what is now San Luis Obispo County. By the time Paso Robles passed from Mexican to American control in the nineteenth century, it was world famous for the restorative powers of its mineral hot springs. The industry catering to the crowds seeking the benefits of the springs gradually gave way to wine making, with the first commercial winery established in 1882. Later on, the area drew the spotlight when Ignace Jan Paderewski, the famous Polish musician and statesman, planted vines on his ranch there in the early 1920s. He was one of the first to realize the hot days and cool nights of the region’s Mediterranean climate were perfectly suited to Rhône varieties such as Syrah as well as California’s heritage grape, Zinfandel. Despite that, as American wine drinkers of the postWorld War II era developed a taste for Cabernet Sauvignon, most Paso vintners concentrated on that grape— particularly large wineries such as Meridian and J. Lohr, which sprang up in the 1980s. Although Gary Eberle, one of the area’s pioneers, planted Syrah as far back as the mid 1970s, in 1989 a remarkable thing occurred: 88

Plan a trip to Paso during one of its annual festivals, such as Vintage Paso.

VISITING PASO Paso Robles hosts many festive events. Major annual happenings include Vintage Paso (March), the Paso Robles Wine Festival (May) and the Harvest Wine Weekend (coming up October 17-19). The best accommodations can be found at The Oaks Hotel, the Hotel Cheval, the Adelaide Inn and La Bellaserra Hotel. Three facilities still offer the hot springs experience that made Paso famous—the Paso Robles Inn, River Oaks Hot Springs Spa and Franklin Hot Springs. If your goal is to visit wineries, plan ahead. Remember that many facilities are too small to offer public tours, and can’t receive you without an appointment. When you’re ready to take a break from wineries, check out the Children’s Museum or the Pioneer Museum, the art galleries at Studios on the Park, the Hunter Ranch Golf Course or the Ravine Waterpark. Other must-sees include the Hearst Castle in San Simeon and the historic Mission San Miguel Arcangel, established in 1797, which are main tourist attractions in the area. For more information on these and other attractions in Paso, see and

The Tablas Creek Vineyard in Paso produces wines from grapes imported from the Rhône Valley.

J. Lohr grows mainly Cabernet Sauvignon at its Paso Robles vineyards.

Tablas Creed Vineyard

Tablas Creed Vineyard

Château de Beaucastel, one of France’s top producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, established a winery outside Paso Robles in partnership with American wine importer Robert Haas. Beaucastel planted 80 acres with Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, and the Rhône craze was launched. Today there are more than 150 wineries in Paso, most of which primarily produce full-bodied red wine. The conventional wisdom is the best vineyards are west of Highway 101, where they benefit from the cool breezes coming off the Pacific Ocean. Many of the wineries (such as Saxum Vineyards and Linne Calodo) are tiny operations that produce sought-after bottles usually purchased through a mailing list. One of the best known is Turley Wine Cellars, the king of Zinfandel, which makes 28 wines from 35 vineyard sites. For seekers of more accessible producers, the best introduction to Paso is Hope Family Wines, which produces five labels, including Liberty School and Treana. Liberty School, which began as the second label of Caymus Vineyards and eventually became a brand in its own right, is a remarkable value. Varietals Liberty produces include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and a red blend called Cuvée. These wines are satisfying and well-crafted—at an attractive average price of $15 a bottle. «

Office Optimization Waterfront Properties and Club Communities reveals its new downtown Stuart office, filled with unparalleled amenities by Nila Do Simon

A glimpse at Waterfront Properties and Club Communities’ new Stuart office shows it is no ordinary real estate office. Countless blooming orchids hang from the trees, a 70-inch television screen is displayed in the conference room and a wood-burning fireplace welcomes visitors. The area’s leading real estate firm left its former office in Sewall’s Point in February to move to 728 Southeast Ocean Boulevard. Looking to expand in Martin and St. Lucie counties, the company wanted to create a home base that welcomed prospective homebuyers and sellers with open arms. In short, Waterfront Properties wanted the office to reflect its own real estate philosophy: forward thinking, sophisticated and engaging. The result? A new office that is bright, inviting and full of advanced tools to serve its clients and showcase the charm of the beautiful city of Stuart.

Set in a prime location near historic downtown, the Stuart office was meticulously designed to provide homebuyers and sellers with an ideal and comfortable setting. Originally built as a home and most recently used as a doctor’s office, the Waterfront office maintains a charming cottage feel. Complementing the hanging orchids is the driveway revamped with elegant pavers and vibrant turf. If the curb appeal of the office is not impressive enough, a walk inside shows a thorough overhaul of the freestanding building. Shades of light blue and sand create a soothing ambience, and crown molding and overstuffed chairs complete the warm feel. Managing Partner Rob Thomson and his mother, Joan, who founded Waterfront Properties, redesigned the office from the ground up—literally. Rob even carefully chose the outdoor landscaping with a desire to install


cutting-edge artificial turf that resembles real grass. Selected for its low environmental impact, the turf is a feat in water conservation, says John Gallina of Synthetic Turf International, who installed the turf. It does not even require fertilization, pest control or fungicide, therefore holding an environmental advantage by not introducing chemicals. “Synthetic turf is the twentieth century meeting the twenty-first century,” John says. “The Waterfront building looks great and reminds you of the way the area used to be.”

“Rob and Joan spared no expense with this office,” says Adam Brown, the 25-year real estate veteran with Waterfront Properties and No. 1 agent in the area. “Their leadership has made a huge difference in how Waterfront operates. Rob doesn’t just hire anybody as agents. All of us who come on are professional agents, and he recognized that he needed an office setting that showed his appreciation.” Stuart residents have also noticed the building. “We have more walk-ins,” says Elisa Shine, a longtime buyer’s agent and Realtor. “It’s really inviting, and people get that vibe as soon as they walk into the door. Everything is manicured perfectly, which is exactly the Waterfront mentality.” “It sets the scene to relax and talk to buyers and sellers about their needs,” Realtor Lauren Hertz says. “People who are looking to move to the Stuart area are looking for peace and beauty and family. It’s a whole laid-back lifestyle. This area attracts that type of person.” For Lauren and the other Realtors with Waterfront, the office mirrors the company’s approach to offer the best amenities to its buyers and sellers. This includes the innovative Internet marketing the company has pioneered in its field. With unparalleled search engine optimization abilities and an advanced website, Waterfront has long been a real estate leader and has even won coveted awards among the international Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate group. “There is not a day that goes by that somebody doesn’t say how our website is the best that they have ever seen,” Lauren says. As Realtor James Kilfeather says, “I would never go work anywhere else. Waterfront is a very well-run machine, and the focus that Rob and Joan have has allowed us to stay at the front of the real estate business. I receive letters all the time that my clients have written saying we offer the smoothest real estate transaction that they have been a part of.” And that’s exactly what drew the Stuart office’s newest agent and veteran Realtor, Liz Elliott, to Waterfront Properties. The lifelong Florida resident and boating enthusiast says she’s excited to offer buyers and sellers the highest level of marketing and dedication available. “Previously, I spent my own money on marketing and my website. But now with Waterfront, they take care of all of that so I can concentrate on my own buyers and sellers,” Liz says. “And the new office has made it such a pleasure for them. The location of the office is terrific. It’s a thoroughfare for people coming from I-95 and going to the beach. It’s right in the heart of the business and residential district.” Laura Krecic, one of the firm’s youngest Realtors, says receiving sage advice from Rob and Joan Thomson has put her light-years ahead of her peers.

But it’s all business at this office. The state-of-the-art conference room holds a 70-inch television so buyers and sellers can receive an expansive view of digital maps and presentations. The seven agents working in the new office couldn’t have imagined working in a better setting that offers the maximum benefits for their buyers and sellers.

“If you’re new, there is always someone you can go to, like Joan,” says Laura, a fourth-generation Realtor. “It’s nice to know you’re not alone in this intense industry. And Rob instills so much confidence in his agents with his great coaching that we know we’ll do well.”

Q: What is your design inspiration? A: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Inspiration comes from clients, their way of life and the home they live in. The backyard should flow with the layout of the home and the consumer’s personality. Some consumers might want a tropical feel, where others want an art deco, modern feel. Consumers are limited only by their imagination. Each consumer is different, and the end result should match his or her style, personality and taste. Q: What are the latest trends in your industry? A: The trends we see in building and remodeling involve creating an elaborate outdoor living area, with the focal point being the design of the pool, that captures the style and personality of the consumer. This can include water

To interpret someone’s vision and make it a reality is what drives me. My creativity stems from a feeling I am trying to emit or a look I am trying to achieve. Color combination and use of appropriate scaled patterns and texture add interest to the design. Q: What are the latest trends in your industry? A: More people are seeking organization. The use of streamlined built-ins with functional compartments is becoming more popular. Mixing and matching finishes allow homeowners to create their own custom look. In addition, because living spaces are shrinking, large and

The shift towards smaller pieces also goes hand in hand with a liking for less ornate furniture and a preference for a more contemporary style. Q: What is your area of specialization?

Unique furniture layouts can cohesively blend one room to another and makes for a smooth transition and proper traffic flow.

A: Major trends include a pop of color against a neutral background, digital photography transferred onto fabric and wall coverings, and Lucite, clear and colored “invisible furniture.” Lucite objects used in South Florida have

a very special function, as they allow an unobstructed view of an ocean or cityscape. I love Alexandra Von Furstenberg’s Lucite collection of furniture and accessories, which is available exclusively in West Palm Beach in our boutique on Antique Row. Q: What is your area of specialization? A: I specialize in residential interiors and exterior spaces, capturing Hollywood regency with a touch of French, beach chic, Mediterranean or authentic mid-century modern. We specialize in refurbishing and recreating coveted vintage furniture to each client’s desires or resell specifications.

Rachel Logue

Rachel Eve Design Inc. Q: What is your design inspiration? A: Every project has a different inspiration. Usually, it’s a blend of many things. It could be the location of the home, the architecture or the client’s own personality. Travel has also been a huge source of inspiration. It comes down to a feeling about what would work best for the particular project. Ultimately, I want clients to see themselves in my work. Q: What are the latest trends in your industry? A: Current kitchen trends are all about simplicity, clean lines and maximizing storage. Mixing finishes and textures is a way to add interest without becoming too ornate. In bathrooms, creating a relaxing retreat is a current and

lasting style. In other areas of the home, such as builtins, the feel continues with “less is more.” It’s all about creating a functional, comfortable home. I like to tailor trends to the way the homeowner lives. Q: What is your area of specialization? A: I specialize in getting to know clients and what they are looking for and turning that into a reality, whether it be their kitchen, an entertainment center, a home office, a bar or just a powder room. With my background in interior design, I don’t just sell cabinets; I create beautiful spaces that flow with the entire home.

Jonathan Moore

Smith and Moore Architects Q: What is your design inspiration? A: The environment in South Florida greatly influences our design process. I am amazed at the way older buildings in this area responded to the environment, while many of today’s structures seem to show no awareness of it at all. The Palm Beach Par 3 Clubhouse had an incredible site to work with. When we take advantage of the elements of South Florida—such as the view, sea breeze and natural light—the project will be successful. Q: What are the latest trends in your industry? A: Design styles seem to be trending about every 10 years. In the 90s, the Mediterranean revival style was very

popular. In the early 2000s, the Georgian and BritishWest Indies style was widely accepted. Today, more clients are asking us to design the contemporary style. Smith and Moore Architects has a vast knowledge of these architectural styles. Q: What is your area of specialization? A: Smith and Moore Architects specializes in classical design, yet we branch out into the more contemporary styles when the occasion arises. Building types typically include high-end residential, equestrian, multifamily and clubhouse design. Smith and Moore Architects is also well versed in historic renovation, with a vast portfolio of Fatio, Wyeth and Mizner projects.

Easy Raw Simple Sprouting

Produced when seeds first begin to grow, sprouts are a potent source of nutrients, antioxidants and diseasefighting phytochemicals, according to the International Sprout Growers Association. Baby plants in their purest forms, sprouts grow from vegetable seeds, grains like buckwheat and beans; common types of sprouts include lentil, pea, broccoli, chia, sunflower, alfalfa and mung beans. For raw foodists, these are a valuable salad addition, sandwich topping or tasty side dish—and they can be grown at home. According to the Hippocrates Health Institute, if you have nine square inches of counter space, you can grow one pound of sprouts. Products such as the Freshlife automatic sprouter ($159.95, left) make it easy to grow and enjoy this fresh, healthy food. (888-254-7336,

For Delray Beach resident Debra K., wellness isn’t just a way of life—it’s a journey. Suffering from what she describes as “corporate burnout” and a slew of associated health issues, Debra embarked on a journey to share inspirational health stories with a national audience. In 2012, she began production on the first episode of Journey into Wellbeing, a public-access television show that explores health issues throughout the country. Though she features every facet of wellness, “my passion is to address the top three health concerns in the nation, which are, for me, diabetes, obesity and depression,” she says. Debra’s first episode focused on her home state of Kentucky, where she highlighted organic farmers and a midwifery university, among others. She chose to start in Kentucky because it often gets a bad rep when it comes to health. “When I thought about taking on Ken-

tucky, part of me was a little bit skeptical,” she admits. “I was amazed. Once you decide where to put your attention, it’s amazing the great things you will discover.” Now, Debra is setting her sights on South Florida with the goal of creating episodes on individual cities, including Palm Beach, Jupiter, Boca Raton and Delray Beach. With production scheduled to start next month, Debra is looking forward to cooking healthy recipes with area chefs, exploring local hospitals, highlighting fitnessfocused outdoor activities and more. Above all, Debra hopes to inspire viewers by just being herself. “If I have the courage to show up, whether I’m feeling good or bad that day—just by being honest and not trying to be perfect—and then working with people who are so passionate and committed, I feel like that has the potential to change somebody’s life,” she says.

The Village Greens Community Garden, tucked along 25th Street in West Palm Beach’s Northwood district, is an Edenesque haven of sustainability. As one of only two community gardens designated by the city of West Palm Beach, Village Greens aims to provide the neighborhood with fresh herbs, a place to tend to personal gardening and an education on sustainable living practices and chemical-free food production. Northwood Greenlife, a nonprofit that promotes green initiatives, established and now manages the garden. Vice President Mayra Morrison describes the garden’s practices as a more conscious way to live. “I think it’s a birthright to learn how to grow food,” she says. Village Greens covers the gardening process from beginning to end—including using all-natural compost—and uses sustainable practices throughout, such as watering vegetation with collected rainwater. Currently, the garden is focused on growing plants and herbs, dishing out most of its harvest to area restaurants. Community members are also welcome to visit the garden and plant whatever they need. In the future, Morrison hopes to establish classes and build stronger community ties—whatever allows her to give back to the area she calls home. “Once you give and you get that high from giving, it’s hard not to do it anymore,” she says.

Smart Sight With the advent of new technology comes the promise of leading a better-informed life. Earlier this year, Google[x], a branch of Google that researches solutions to global problems, introduced the prototype for a smart contact lens with the potential to monitor blood-sugar levels. More than 29 million Americans have diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and monitoring glucose levels can be an uncomfortable daily struggle. Using microscopic sensors and a radio antenna thinner than a human hair, the smart lens would measure glucose levels in tears; this data would then be transmitted to a smartphone or other electronic device. In addition to helping patients with diabetes, the lens would also have the ability to autofocus like a camera, allowing those with diminished eyesight to see nearby objects. In July, Google announced a partnership with the European drug maker Novartis to develop this smart lens technology for eventual public use. (

beautiful Anniversary In December 1973, beauty was born on New York’s Upper East Side when Anushka Blau (right) opened the Anushka Petite Salon. This year, Blau, owner of the famous West Palm Beach Anushka Spa, Salon and Cosmedical Centre, is celebrating more than 40 years in the business of beauty. PBI caught up with Anushka to discuss the past, present and future of the spa, salon and cosmetic industry. (561-820-0500, How have you seen the beauty industry change? Our awareness of how to take care of ourselves has changed dramatically. Part of being beautiful today includes taking care of your skin, hair and body, including health and fitness. In the ’70s, people had limited information and did not understand the damaging effects of the sun, smoking and product ingredients. With the information [now] at hand, the Anushka brand … chooses not to use a number of ingredients such as parabens, propylene glycol, cocoamide, DEA, phthalates, BHA and BHT, which we know now to be harmful and are found in many household beauty products. How has the Anushka brand managed to stay relevant over the years? Keeping up with technology and staying innovative is important to us, especially as new beauty and de-aging treatments are emerging at an incredible pace. We also believe in educating our clients on what we are learning. One way we do that is by offering a monthly Beauty Brunch, hosted by medicalgrade companies such as iS Clinical, SkinMedica and Latisse, to name a few, where we talk about what is happening in the industry.

What’s the most important beauty tip you pass along to spa patrons? I have worked with thousands of women, many of whom have wanted to make profound changes to themselves, whether it was their hair color, their body shape or with anti-aging injectables. At Anushka, we pride ourselves on being beauty advisers. Beauty should be in balance—don’t overdo it! There are appropriate treatments for every age. And always, always consult with the experts.

Agenda A Glowing Tribute

Cultures across the globe have different traditions for honoring friends and family members who have passed on. On October 18, commemorate late loved ones in the Japanese tradition at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens’ Lantern Festival. The annual event celebrates Obon, a three-day Buddhist holiday, with taiko drumming, Japanese folk dances and street-fair activities. At sunset, attendees can dedicate paper lanterns to loved ones and release them across the lake; these floating luminaries are believed to guide spirits home following the brief celebration.

Joe Mimran With a decades-long career in fashion, Joe Mimran is the stylish leader responsible for developing such popular labels as Club Monaco, Alfred Sung, Caban and Pink Tartan, which is designed by his wife, Kimberley Newport Mimran. Today, Casablanca-born Mimran is the creative director of Canadian line Joe Fresh and also lends his aesthetic to home and entertainment brands for Loblaw Companies Ltd. An arts supporter and collector, he and his wife live in Toronto and Palm Beach with their four children. Favorite piece in Joe Fresh’s latest collection The women’s faux fur-lined parka is the perfect winter coat—warm and stylish with a touch of modern luxury. In his headphones Carla Bruni and bossa nova Trend he’s loving Varsity-inspired menswear has made a big comeback. A collegiate jacket paired with jeans and slip-on sneakers is the perfect weekend look. Guilty pleasure Dark chocolate On his feet Velvet slippers. I’ve curated quite the collection over the years. I am a huge fan of Palm Beach’s original Stubbs & Wootton. I wear them almost every day. Favorite designer My wife, Kimberley Newport Mimran of Pink Tartan, will always be my favorite designer. Jet-set Morocco, where I am originally from. You can’t help but get inspired walking through the markets. Drink of choice A very dry, very cold Grey Goose martini—shaken, not stirred On his Nook Patti Smith’s memoir, Just Kids. I’ve been lucky enough to pick Patti’s brain in person, but the book is just as compelling. Never leaves home without My pair of bespoke glasses from Oliver Goldsmith. Can’t live (or see) without them!
