ou taught her well, and she’ll be your Pine Creek buddy forever. Pine Creek is about family and friends enjoying special things and building life long memories.

There’s no other private club like it in Florida. For starters, it has thousands of acres of pristine ranch and wilderness land, with hundreds of acres of dedicated quail fields, high bird pheasant shooting, skeet and sporting clays, a quail aviary, horse barn, kennels, and miles of canoe trails. Here, nature’s bounty seems unlimited and timeless. The social hub is a truly magnificent club lodge, pool and fitness center. The Founder’s list is impressive, the members are friendly and down to earth and the staff is always there to please. It gets even better — Your own ranch can be on a 40-acre site, or, you can choose from a collection of the most architecturally stylish country cabins this side of Aspen. Pine Creek, a very special place where legacies begin.

v FROM THE PUBLISHER

Making Memories I have everything in the world I want, and then I’ve got all this surplus around. I give away the surplus. —Warren Buffett

A

few months ago, Buffett and Bill Gates—two of the world’s wealthiest men—jointly issued a challenge to America’s most affluent people, asking them to follow their lead and donate at least half of their fortunes to charity. Their campaign, called The Giving Pledge, doesn’t solicit money for itself, it asks only for public pledges of benevolence in inspirational ways to benefit society. Within weeks, some 40 American billionaires had accepted the challenge, nearly all of them echoing a similar sentiment: They’d rather be remembered for their generosity than for their wealth. So here we are in November, with our thoughts turning toward giving thanks for our blessings, and it occurs to me that we all probably have wondered about how we’ll be remembered someday. I’m sure most of us have even pondered the Gates-Buffett challenge and thought about whether it’s the best way to go about giving back to society. A lot of good obviously will result from this approach; I’ve also read compelling arguments for investing that money into businesses as a way to strengthen the economy and create jobs. This isn’t the forum to endorse any particular idea—that must be your decision—but there’s no doubt we’re all positioned to do good things with lasting effects. For most of us, benevolence is a part of everyday life, realizing that our personal circumstances enable us to support worthy causes year-round. Many of us do just that. In fact, according to the 2010 World Wealth Report from Merrill Lynch and Capgemini, North America’s wealthiest people already donate about $200 billion annually. But there’s always a need for more. Here in South Florida, the social season is now upon us and our calendars are filled with fundraising events—black-tie galas, dinner parties, golf tournaments and more—through next spring, presenting each of us with opportunities to shape the direction of our community. I encourage you to consider ways you can create a significant impact, whether it’s through your financial gifts, your leadership, your connections or your time. If you don’t yet have a favorite cause or two, let me direct your attention to the annual Palm Beach Charity Register, available this month on select newsstands or through palmbeachil lustrated.com. It offers a complete overview of the local organizations working to improve the world immediately around us. Not many of us get a chance to write our own legacies, but benevolence is one way we can affect the story line. You certainly don’t need to pattern yourself after Buffett, who pledged to give away 99 percent of his wealth, but you can make the most of the opportunities in front of you. And I hope you will.

v EDITOR’S LETTER

Fashionably Yours n the universe of fashion, Palm Beach definitely has its own indelible style signature—a look that not only is relaxed and speaks to the resort lifestyle, but also is as worldly and sophisticated as the island’s globe-trotting denizens. In this issue, we highlight some of the most stylish looks from the resort and fall collections, for both men and women. In “Male Call” (page 64), we present a creative take on fashion for the gentleman at work and play. Shot in London by one of our regular contributors, Bell Soto, the story brings together elements of the traditional with new, innovative cuts and unexpected combinations of texture. “Strokes of Genius,” on page 78, presents the best of ’60s-inspired resort collections for women, in the vibrant setting of the Norton Museum of Art’s contemporary gallery. Continuing the style theme, we visit James Mischka and Mark Badgley at their newly finished Palm Beach apartment. Mark and James opened a signature Badgley Mischka boutique on Worth Avenue last season, and thought it would be fun to have a pied-à-terre near their store. So they sold their home in Wellington, where Mark continues to show horses during the Winter Equestrian Festival, and moved into a charming apartment, which they designed to reflect their vision of classic Palm Beach style. When I visited, my first reaction was that the place was so totally “them”—effortlessly stylish, classic with a creative twist, and so much fun. Turn to “Palm Beach, by Design,” on page 72, for a tour of their space. And speaking of fun, we have asked some of the area’s top pastry chefs to create exact, 100-percent edible replicas of the season’s It handbags. They tackled the challenge with such enthusiasm and precision that it’s difficult to separate the pastry version from the real thing. See for yourself in “Arm Candy,” on page 84. Enjoy the issue!

MONTBLANC. THE TIMEWRITERS.

In 1821, Nicolas Rieussec changed watch-making forever with the invention of the first chronograph. Since “chronograph” literally means “writing time”, the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph rewrites timepiece history. Crafted in the Montblanc Manufacture in Le Locle, Switzerland, this masterpiece is a worthy tribute to its visionary namesake. Monopusher chronograph, self-winding manufacture movement. 30 min. and 60 sec. rotating disc counters fixed on the counter bridge.

3Q

v JOHNNY MATHIS

JEFF DUNAS

Music legend Johnny Mathis has kept his fans swooning since his first album in 1956. Throughout his career, he has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame three times and has performed for numerous dignitaries and heads of state. Mathis will accept the Nat King Cole Lifetime Achievement Award of Unforgettable Music at the Nat King Cole Generation Hope’s annual Stardust Affair on November 20 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club Beach Club. ■ TELL ME ABOUT YOUR ATHLETIC DAYS. I was a high jumper and basketball player in high school and at San Francisco State University. When the time came for me to choose between the U.S. Olympic trials for high jumping in 1956 or start a singing career with Columbia Records, I chose the singing. I don’t think I’d still be high jumping at 75, but I’m still singing! ■ WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG? So many songs that I love, but “Misty” is one that is extra special to me. Before I had a career in music, I had the opportunity to sing at local nightclubs in San Francisco. It was there that I met the composer of “Misty,” Errol Garner. He was a self-taught pianist and had a big hit with it himself in 1954. I recorded it in the early ’60s and still sing it in concerts today. ■ WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO RECEIVE THIS AWARD? Nat King Cole is one of my heroes. I was so fortunate to meet him and to know him—he left us all too early in life. He was and is such an inspiration to me and to my music. In any way I can honor his name, that’s what I want to do, and accepting this honor to help promote the wonderful Nat King Cole Generation Hope is a way I can do that. —Lola Thélin

forwardvinsider EXTRAORDINARILY BUILT While Addison Mizner was the king of Palm Beach design, Maurice Fatio arguably could have been the prince. Acanthus Press honors the Swiss-born architect, who created more than 200 homes in Florida, with Maurice Fatio, Palm Beach Architect. The book examines 26 of Fatio’s finest architectural works, built between 1927 and 1939, including Harold Vanderbilt’s Eastover, Harrison Williams’ Blythedunes and E.F. Hutton’s Four Winds, using 300 period and new photographs, floor plans of his designs, and historical narratives of each building and the clients who commissioned them. acanthuspress.com

GOOD TO THE LAST BITE

WHOLESOME FOOD Pam Block believes that the best meals begin with the freshest ingredients and is bringing that concept to your dinner table with the opening of Sweet Greens Farmers’ Market. Block purchases vegetables and fruits from Florida farms only, and gets her fresh catches from two local commercial fishermen, which guarantees freshness and supports the local economy. Homemade deli salads and to-go meals will be made daily using recipes from friends and family, and Block will bake pastry goods such as apple and cherry pies and zucchini and Italian breads. The store will host a grand opening weekend November 7 and 8. Palm Beach Gardens (561624-0857, sweetgreensmarket.com)

Why shouldn’t cupcakes last longer than four bites? At Over the Top Cupcakes, in addition to traditional cupcakes, owner Joanne Slater offers up something unique—a cupcake in a jar. Most of her standard cupcake flavors are available in jars, and some specialty varieties can be custom ordered. Sink your teeth into flavors like devil’s food cake with vanilla buttercream or an almond white cake and milk chocolate icing. How Slater actually makes the cupcake in a jar is top secret, but as long as she continues to produce, we won’t question her method. Stuart (772-288-2417, overthetopcupcakes.com)

first class v NOTES OF ELEGANCE Music City offers much more than the Grand Ole Opry. BY ROBERT RAGAINI

To be a city with a distinct identity can be a mixed blessing. Turns out there’s much more to Nashville than country music. The Grand Ole Opry still claims to be Tennessee’s No. 1 attraction, which somewhat overshadows the wonderful Nashville Opera, Nashville Ballet and Tennessee Repertory Theatre residing in the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. The Nashville Symphony performs in the world-class Schermerhorn Symphony Center, while fine art venues are a short walk away. PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | NOVEMBER 2010

The Capitol Grille in The Hermitage Hotel used to be a private club; The beautiful glass ceiling in the lobby was commissioned in Italy. Opening page: The veranda at The Hermitage Hotel is a perfect gathering place for cocktails.

Nashville also offers top-of-the-line luxury accommodations in the heart of all that high culture at The Hermitage Hotel, which became the center of the city’s burgeoning social scene a century ago. The beaux-arts hotel rose up as Nashville emerged as a major Southern city. Over the years, the historic property has hosted an impressive list of politicians and celebrities, such as Presidents Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon, as well as Bette Davis, Greta Garbo and Oprah Winfrey. In 2003, the hotel completed a massive, $17-million restoration project. Now it features 122 spacious rooms and suites—half the number it had originally—and has a nationally recognized restaurant, spa and fitness room. It also is the only Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond hotel in the state. The lobby exudes elegance, with massive marble columns that draw the eye to a luminous glass ceiling that was commissioned in Italy. The hotel offers a 2,000-square-foot presidential suite and 1,000-square-foot executive suite, but all the rooms are remarkably spacious, with marble bathrooms featuring double vanities, plush oversized towels and opulent accessories. The service is just as refined as the gra58

cious setting. A bath concierge is on call to present you with an extensive selection of therapeutic bath salts and foaming bath oils. Or simply request the concierge to draw your bath with rose petals, at your desired temperature. After emerging from the bath, the bed’s down-filled duvet and 600-thread-count Liddell Linens from Ireland beckon. Don’t get too comfy, though; Nashville’s many experiences await. Although music rules in this city, another compelling reason to visit Tennessee is the annual Nashville Film Festival (April 14-21, 2011). This year, more than 2,200 films from 82 countries were submitted to the longestrunning film festival in the South, and more than 70 feature films were screened. After a night at the movies or a concert, a late dinner in the hotel’s Capitol Grille

proves to be just the ticket. Once a private club, the restaurant hasn’t lost the formal feeling. Executive Chef Tyler Brown’s cuisine is down-home Southern, and the kitchen grows fresh produce at the historic farm Glen Leven. The menu offers such friendly fare as roasted black grouper, braised short ribs, smoked pork and a lamb duo of grilled breast and boneless loin. For dessert, there’s the Tennessee Peach Clafouti served with ginger ice cream. A nightcap immersed in the genteel Southern aura of the adjacent Oak Bar provides a perfect conclusion to a busy day in a surprising city. The Hermitage Hotel, though, is no surprise. With its illustrious 100-year history forming its impeccable reputation, it had only to live up to expectations. thehermitagehotel.com ◆

THE COSMETIC FILLER CHOICE OF CELEBRITIES SCULPTRA

T

here is no need to fly to Beverly Hills! Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera is one of the top 5 injectors for Sculptra in the entire United States and is also a Top Platinum Level master injector of Botox and fillers for Allergan! Sculptra when done well can easily erase decades off your apparent age and you will look as young as you feel. The results can be dramatic producing a youthful, symmetric, invigorated look. Sculptra is different from other dermal fillers in that it is not a gel or other substance that is injected to erase a specific wrinkle or fold. Sculptra works entirely by stimulating the body to create its own new collagen. When done correctly, this creates a more gradual and very natural increase in facial volume, which is why it is so popular among celebrities. People will comment on how great and young you look but

near the jaw and looking less masculine. Dr. Aguilera masterfully administers Sculptra to recreate the masculine jaw that the years have diminished or adds a more masculine jaw line that genetics simply did not create. For women, he can resculpt the softness and roundness of the jaw line and build it back up to a plump, round, youthful volume and tightening the loose skin in this area. Like a master artist sculpts, Dr. Aguilera will recreate the younger looking masculine or feminine jaw and youthful face that the years have diminished. Celebrities and our patients alike have discovered the wonderfully unique benefits of Sculptra!

COUPE DE THRILL CADILLAC SHARPENS ITS EDGE WITH A NEW 556-HORSE TWO-DOOR ROCKET SHIP, THE CTS-V COUPE. BY HOWARD WALKER

If Pablo Picasso had tried his hand at car design during his analytic cubism period (1909-1912), there’s a fair chance he might have come up with something similar to Cadillac’s stunning new CTS-V Coupe. Here’s a car with more angles and edges than a Cartier diamond, more folds and creases than an origami swan. Run your hand along any part of the Caddy’s trunk lid and you’ll be running for a Band-Aid. Yet here is true design brilliance. Alongside the wetbar-of-soap styling of most other sporty coupes out there, the CTS is a veritable samurai sword on wheels; a car to slice ’n dice its way through the morning rush on I-95. Yes, you can get this razor-edge styling on a regular V6-powered CTS Coupe. But why would you when you can rush your adrenaline with the thundering CTS-V and its 556-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 nuclear powerhouse? To drive this thing with a modicum of anger is like an e-ticket ride in an F-14 Tomcat fighter jet—off an aircraft carrier. Pick your gear, plant the throttle and 551 62

PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

pound-feet of torque will launch you from standstill to 60 mph in a stupid-fast 3.9 seconds. And it delivers this tsunami of thrust to the accompaniment of one of the most sinister soundtracks imaginable. As revs rise, the Caddy’s supercharger emits the kind of baleful wail that will have every little hair on the back of your neck standing to attention. This is a car to lock horns with BMW’s blunt instrument M3 coupe and Audi’s upcoming 450-horsepower RS5 coupe, and give them a collective spanking. So thrilling is its performance, so dynamic is its handling, so amazing is the whole package, that this $69,500 (with a few must-have options) rocket ship sets a new world standard in sports coupe sexiness. And that sexiness starts the instant you open the door. There’s nothing so ordinaire as a door handle here. Reach into the door recess, press lightly on a small rubbery pad, and an electric motor pops the door open. Now settle down into the optional ($3,400) Recaro high-performance front seat. Here you’re locked in place as tightly as a bear hug from Hulk Hogan, which makes it


all the better to explore the Caddy’s high-g cornering forces. The sexiness continues when you reach out and wrap your digits around the steering wheel and shifter, which are covered in sensuous suede—just like Danica Patrick’s IndyCar racer. All the better for gripping when, inevitably, your palms go all clammy from taming those raging stallions. There’s room for four inside the Caddy Coupe’s cozy cabin, and with a little compromise from those up front, there’s even decent legroom in the back in those individual rear bucket seats. But that swoopy, sloped roofline does rob a fair bit of headroom. Yet surprisingly for such a rakish coupe, there’s even a decent-sized trunk, though those intrusive “gooseneck” hinges will dig into your Louis Vuitton luggage faster than you can say “insurance claim.” But to drive this car is to fall head over heels in lust. It’s a car with heft and substance. On the road there’s a firmness and solidity about the suspen-

sion and the way its 19-inch Michelin Pilot Sport 2 performance tires pitter-pats over pockmarked asphalt. This is a car that wants the driver to know exactly what’s going on at the wheels, which is a good thing when you’re spearing along a snaking stretch of country two-lane blacktop, ideally in Germany’s Eiffel Mountains while on your way to a session at the nearby Nürburgring racetrack. This is a car born for speed. Its Magnetic Ride Control suspension adjusts the damping every milli-second to keep the car perfectly level through the turns, plus gives the driver the option of the hard-riding “Sport” setting or softer “Tour” mode for a more compliant ride. And when you need to stop in a hurry, its racing-bred Brembo brakes grab you to a halt as effectively as throwing a ship’s anchor out the back. For the high-powered sports coupe lover, this new CTS-V is as much a masterpiece as any Picasso. ◆

Mark Badgley and James Mischka turn a small space into a relaxed island getaway with a glamorous edge. by daphne nikolopoulos photography by JERRY RABINOWITZ

A classic Palm Beach aesthetic is reflected in the color palette, shell motifs and eclectic, collected look. Right: Mark Badgley (left) and James Mischka at home in Palm Beach.

It all began with a woman. And not just any woman. The lady in question had beauty, money, social standing … and a past. It sounds like a heroine in a Jackie Collins novel set in Palm Beach, but this woman provided a different type of inspiration. Known simply as “Elizabeth,” the 1940s socialite became an improbable muse for James Mischka and Mark Badgley as they were decorating their Palm Beach apartment. “She was a socialite in New York in the ’40s, who had married into a very well-to-do family,” says Mischka. “She was rumored to be ‘in the profession.’” “She was ostracized in Palm Beach society when they learned about her … activities,” adds Badgley. Mischka chimes in: “We immediately had a bond with her.” Elizabeth was immortalized in a painting, and when Badgley and Mischka saw it at SoBeArt on West Palm Beach, they had to have it. The portrait now hangs prominently in their living room, greeting visitors with a seductive gaze and a practiced smile. Look closely at the golden haired subject in the red, off-the-shoulder dress, and you’ll see an effortless glamour not unlike the kind possessed by the Badgley Mischka woman. The designers, whose hyperglamorous clothes are palmbeachillustrated.com | NOVEMBER 2010

staples on the red carpet, put the same eye for detail and thoughtful eclecticism that goes into their collections into the selection of every item in their apartment. As a result, the space is a fashionable weave of classic Palm Beach color, embroidered with a shimmery thread of vintage glamour and embellished with a soupçon of whimsy. The couple rented the apartment, a one-bedroom jewel box tucked in a verdant corner of the island, last year, around the same time they opened their signature boutique on Worth Avenue. They had just sold their larger home in Wellington, and liked the idea of being within walking distance of the store. “We wanted a change in scenery,” says Badgley, who shows horses in the hunter/jumper circuit around the country, including Wellington in the winter. “We thought it would be fun to be in the neighborhood. We always spend a lot of time in The Brazilian Court, plus we have dogs and it’s fun to walk them along the Intracoastal.” Mischka adds, “We saw everything that was for rent. We saw bigger places, but wanted to go for charm versus size.” In this case, size does not matter. There is no doubt that the place is small, but it is so thoughtfully appointed that it feels more spacious than it is. Their design approach was to achieve a sense of place, a traditional Palm Beach aesthetic with an haute seaside vibe that never goes out of style. Because their home in Wellington was modern and minimal, they had to source all-new materials and furnishings for the apartment. “It only took a couple of trips to [South] Dixie Highway and a truckload from Kentucky,” says Mischka, referring to their horse farm near Lexington. “We drove down with a truck full of stuff, like the Beverly Hillbillies.”


They began with a few key pieces—including the painting of Elizabeth—and built from there. A bamboo sofa painted black and a black wood side chair gather round a wrought iron and glass coffee table topped with art and horse books, marble candleholders and various stylized references to the surroundings, such as coral in a silver ice bucket. A pair of tiger-striped ottomans is perched in front of a square-paned picture window that floods the room with light and admits a postcard view of tropical foliage. The fabrics for the upholstery, cushions and curtains came from Mac Fabrics in West Palm Beach, one of the couple’s favorite sources locally. Badgley and Mischka, both of whom actively participate in the design of all their homes, chose fabrics that articulated their vision of Palm Beach—beachy and traditional, yes, but not without a certain sophistication. A fun shell and coral motif on the sofa is tempered by a complementary stripe on the chair and grounded by a seagrass rug. Outside, on the covered patio where Mischka and Badgley spend much of their time unwinding and taking in the soft sea breezes, coral and white striped cushions on vintage white rattan seating capture the

easy elegance of Palm Beach during the Slim Aarons era. And in the bedroom, which communicates with the patio via French doors, a Tiffany blue and olive leaf stripe, juxtaposed with monogrammed white bedding from Leontine Linens (“a neighbor of ours in Lexington,” says Mischka), sets the tone for cool, restful evenings and deliciously inert mornings. The bed is watched over by Elizabeth, now older and more somber, or humbled, one cannot be sure which. This portrait, a pastel, was painted 20 years after the one that hangs in the living room. As in their clothes, the design of their home is all in the details. References to the sea, nuanced rather than overt, abound, even in the smallest of ways. Seashells—some pearlized, some with a vintage patina—and interesting coral varieties ranging from the bold to the delicate hint at the locale without overburdening the eye. The secret is the mix. “We are always doing an assemblage of fabrics,” says Mischka. “We grab things we love and put them together.” Adds Badgley, “We are known for embellishment. Even in our homes, we like texture, beautiful fabric, crystal, polished silver, things that twinkle. It’s very much like making an evening gown.” u

ON WITH THE SHOW OUR LOOK AT THE STELLAR ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT LINEUP FOR THE 2010-2011 SEASON BY LOLA THÉLIN

Left to right: Marilyn Monroe by Tom Kelley, 1949; Jean Harlow by George Hurrell, MGM, 1933; Alfred Hitchcock with the MGM Lion by Clarence Sinclair Bull, MGM, 1958; Marlon Brando for A Streetcar Named Desire by John Engstead, Warner Brothers, 1950; Humphrey Bogart for High Sierra by Scotty Welbourne, Warner Brothers, 1940.

ART FOR ALL This year at the Norton Museum of Art, there is certainly an exhibition for everyone. For the film buffs, the Norton rolls out “Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation.” The exhibition reveals how photography is used to create the myth of Hollywood as a magical kingdom, inhabited by glamorous movie stars. Leading ladies Greta Garbo, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn as well as gents Marlon Brando, Clark Gable and Gary Cooper all make an appearance. The exhibition is December 12 to March 6. Fashionistas will take special interest in “Fabulous Fakes: The Jewelry of Kenneth Jay Lane,” on display from February 3 to May 1. Hundreds of the American designer’s costume jewelry pieces, some even worn by Jackie O. and Diana Vreeland, will be displayed. Ideal for history lovers is “To Live Forever: Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum,” which explores the ancient Egyptians’ beliefs about life, death and the afterlife, from February 12 to May 8. Lastly, let loose with the Norton’s summer exhibition, “Out of This World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television,” June 4 to September 4. The exhibition features more than 30 costumes and related objects from science fiction films and television shows, including Blade Runner, Terminator, Star Trek and Batman. West Palm Beach (561-832-5196, norton.org)

LYRICAL REALIST Who knew egg yolk played such a vital role in art? Robert Vickrey is one of few modern artists who have mastered the lost craft of egg tempera, a Renaissance painting method. Vickrey’s paintings depict a poetic interpretation of childhood innocence. He is able to create meticulous detail and textural illusion by using a variety of utensils—a razor, sponge and sandpaper—to “shape” the fast-drying egg tempera. The Boca Raton Museum of Art presents a retrospective exhibition of Vickrey’s 60-year career, which includes 75 Time magazine covers, as the living master of tempera painting. Also worth exploring is “Art for the People: 20th Century Social Realism.” The exhibition is a timeline of the evolution of American art from the 1920s to 1960s. Created from a selection of more than 100 paintings, drawings and prints, it includes examples of American urban and rural scenes, as well as political and social realism. Both exhibitions run April 26 to June 19. Boca Raton (561-392-2500, bocamuseum.org)

A VERY GOOD YEAR

Our annual look at trends in the world of wine BY MARK SPIVAK

Prices for wine are falling, which is good news for enophiles.

94

PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

In last fall’s annual look at wine trends, I observed that it was both a challenging time for the world’s premium wine estates and an exciting period for consumers. This year, the same patterns are supersized. There’s an ocean of wine out there, and prices have fallen for everything except the blue-chip collectibles. For savvy consumers with disposable cash, there’s never been a better time to buy wine. Competition is most fierce among highend California Cabernets. Many top wines have traditionally been sold through mailing lists, and it’s easier than ever to enroll— simply pick up the phone and ask your favorite winery if you can participate. There’s a bill currently in Congress that may put an end to direct shipping, but for the moment the field is more open than ever.

Sales of Bordeaux continue to decline in this country, partly due to stratospheric prices for vintages such as 2000, 2005 and 2009. While there’s a great deal of satisfying Bordeaux available in the affordable range, it seems to have little appeal to wine drinkers under 40. Burgundy, however, has been largely immune to the “Sideways effect,” since the domestic American fan of Pinot Noir tends to prefer a style with less earthiness and more forward fruit. In the world of Italian wine, things are quite different. Americans continue their love affair with Pinot Grigio, Chianti, Barolo, Brunello di Montalcino and the so-called Super Tuscan blends. Best of all, the decline of the Euro against the dollar makes these bottles far more accessible for daily drinking. When it comes to Australia and New Zealand, how quickly things can change! Five years ago, Shiraz from Down Under was the most popular imported red wine in America. The appeal of Aussie Shiraz has faded as consumers have sought a more natural, less concentrated style of wine; at the same time, a glut in Australia has lowered prices to dramatic levels. The situation in New Zealand is not as dire, but bumper crops and a fourfold increase in vineyard plantings has made these wines more affordable than ever.

palate v pour The big success story in the wine business continues to be Argentina. Imports have increased 25 to 30 percent each year since 2007 and show no signs of stopping, unless a bad vintage in Mendoza intervenes. The wine of choice is Malbecâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;big, ripe and rich, it has become the Merlot for the new millennium. The signature white wine grape, Torrontes, is starting to intrigue American consumers with its bright fruit, vibrant acidity and haunting floral characteristics. Perhaps the most important discovery consumers have made in the past year is that a wide range of quality wine exists in all price categories. Previously, there was a tendency among collectors to assume that only expensive wines could be worth drinking; now, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an increasing awareness that technology and winemaking talent have combined to produce interesting wine from all parts of the world, regardless of price.

As I predicted last year, wine ratings by â&#x20AC;&#x153;expertsâ&#x20AC;? are gradually becoming less and less useful for the average person. The explosion of social media has empowered everyone to voice their opinion, creating an open marketplace for ideas and an uncertain platform for reliable opinion. It makes more sense than ever to form your own tasting group, and sample wine regularly in the company of those whose opinions you trust. â&#x2014;&#x2020;

ORIENT EXPRESS

Clockwise: Cantonese Black Cod is served on a bed of bok choy; Thai Roasted Duck arrives in a bowl of red curry sauce; a sushi boat filled with a selection of Echo’s fresh sushi rolls.

Enjoy delicious dishes from the Far East without leaving the island of Palm Beach. BY MARK SPIVAK

In The Breakers’ collection of world-class restaurants, Echo is the jewel of the Orient. Located off the hotel property on Sunrise Avenue, the restaurant offers decor that is both dramatic and inviting. Mahagony tables and a slate floor contrast with banquettes of brightly colored fabric, and subtle lighting gives the room a seductive appearance. An outdoor terrace, framed by a colonnade, offers a pleasant place to dine in mild weather. The food includes dishes from China, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam— cuisines generally not found under one roof, but which combine seamlessly at Echo. Peruse the lengthy menu, and you will find dishes as varied as dim sum, pad Thai, Peking duck, and specialties from the Cantonese and Szechuan repertoires. Despite this culinary diversity, everything is well executed and nothing seems out of place. Begin with some of the freshest sushi in the area, which can be ordered by the piece. Pristine slices of Big Eye tuna, salmon, octopus and eel are dazzling in their purity, and sweet shrimp is served the classic way—accompanied by the deep-fried head ($4-$6 per piece). Plump Tempura Oysters ($16) are lightly breaded and deftly fried, accented by yuzu cream and red tobiko. There are specialty rolls with and without rice, charbroiled spare ribs, salt and pepper calamari and tea-smoked duck wings. Very early in the experience, you realize you’ll have to come back. Entrées are just as diverse and authentic. Cantonese Black Cod ($26) is steamed with Chinese wine and augmented with ginger, scallions and toasted 98

The 17th Annual Lady in Red Gala garlic. The remarkably moist and mild fish is kicked up by a coating of spiced black beans, and presented on a bed of bok choy. Thai Roast Duck ($26) arrives in a bowl of red curry sauce, which seems more like a soup; the duck is flavorful and tender, and the vegetables studding the curry are perfectly crisp. Whatever you do, don’t miss the Echo Fried Rice ($11), wok-seared to a dark brown and filled with shrimp, egg and diced barbecue pork. As you would expect from Master Sommelier Virginia Philip, the wine list is interesting, balanced and well chosen, and includes a dozen premium sakes. A bottle of Coté Tariquet Blanc ($38) is an excellent match for the food. This is from a property north of Bordeaux that Philip visits annually to select blends (This version is 50-percent Chardonnay and 50-percent Sauvignon Blanc). There also is a compelling cocktail list compiled by Charles Steadman, one of the area’s innovative mixologists, who plies his trade at the restaurant’s Dragonfly Lounge. Service is exceptionally cheerful, professional and attentive. The coed staff seems to enjoy their work, relaxed in the knowledge that whatever they serve is likely to be stellar, and happily offer personal recommendations to guests. Management is extremely attentive as well, led by the personable David Thall, who has been at the helm since the restaurant opened in 2000. Several soufflés are available for dessert (coconut with Malibu coconut cream, chocolate-chocolate chip with Baileys Cream, $10), which can be ordered in advance. Other interesting choices include mandarin orange cheesecake, white chocolate ginger mousse and a flight of exotic brûlée (raspberry ginger, pistachio, lavender and five spice). Echo bills itself as serving “resounding Asian cuisine,” an excellent and truthful description. The restaurant offers a first-rate experience on every possible level, and should not be missed. ◆

Apicius Ristorante e Enoteca is the new place to go for authentic Florentine food served in a romantic, chic atmosphere. Named for the culinary institute owner Leopold Balestrieri attended in Italy, the restaurant has an extensive menu featuring many dishes you would expect to find at a restaurant in the heart of Florence. The kitchen is in the hands of Mario Molliere, a Michelin three-star master chef who previously worked at Le Cirque. Specialties include Risotto Apicius (duck confit risotto with foie gras) and Scampi alla Brace. Perhaps more impressive than the choices on the menu is the morethan-extensive wine list. With 800 varieties of Italian wine by the bottle, including Giuseppe Quintarelli and Bertani Amarone, and 60 by the glass, guests are guaranteed to find the perfect liquid accompaniment to their meal.

ROOMS v A PINCH OF COLOR For this Palm Beach Gardens living room, Derick Bolinder worked with the existing design, which was a blank canvas of cream and white. “By adding a rush of vibrant colors, these pops of reds and oranges also embellished the interior architecture,” Bolinder says. His bold use of color won Robb & Stucky a 2010 Silver PRISM Award for this living room design. Robb & Stucky Interiors, Palm Beach Gardens (561-904-7200, robbstucky.com)

CULTURE v HYBRID ART Federico Uribe, a Colombian-born, Miami-based artist, began his career as a painter and today is known for his labor intensive and repetitive mixed-media installations. Uribe uses simple utilitarian objects such as shoelaces, pencils, coins or books, and references his childhood to create sculptures that force the viewer to re-envision how the object and creative process are perceived. The color, form and texture and symbolism create a potent combination. The Vero Beach Museum of Art presents 10 of his works in “Metamorphosis: Abstract Works by Federico Uribe,” on display until January 2, 2011. verobeachmuseum.org —Lola Thélin

DANCE REVUE Funding for the arts often is the first to suffer during trying times, yet Boca Ballet Theatre is standing strong and celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. “In today’s economy, more than ever, we rely on our volunteers and benefactors for our survival,” says Dan Guin, co-artistic director of BBT. “It’s because of their generosity that we have been able to enrich the cultural landscape of our community for the past 20 years.” This year’s performances will be particularly special, starting with the BBT’s annual fundraising luncheon, A Princely Affair, on November 7 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. Florida native Daniel Ulbricht, a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, is the featured guest artist and will perform excerpts from The Nutcracker and La Bayadére. Tickets cost $85 for adults and $45 for children 13 and under.

What is the biggest change you have seen in downtown West Palm Beach? The improvements to lifestyle, such as CityPlace and the Waterfront Commons, have contributed to the downtown area becoming much more attractive to the permanent residents.

What type of client are you seeing make purchases? The downtown market appeals to a diverse range of buyers. The close proximity of restaurants and entertainment attracts active adults. At Two City Plaza, where the buyers are attracted by the excellent amenities and location, we have also seen a significant return of the second homebuyer. How do you feel about the real estate market in the near future? We have come a long way since two years ago. We have had a consistent improvement in market conditions since then, making many buyers realize this could be the best time to purchase in their lifetime. CityStyle Realty 701 S.
