LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER

IT’S FALL. A NEW SEASON FILLED WITH NEW TRENDS AND NEW LOOKS AS WELL AS BELOVED CLASSICS, STARTING AT HOME. As the leaves change color, the weather cools and days get shorter, we start to bunker down by the fireplace. But these days, the fireplace is not necessarily a traditional hearth. In this issue, we take a look at a new generation of indoor tabletop fireplaces. New technologies make it possible to watch the flames flicker in a  centerpiece on the dining room table, flare as an accent from the cocktail table or dance like an animated painting that is framed and mounted on a wall. Kitchens, the heart of our homes, are also evolving. Though ever traditional Long Island is not following the Manhattan/Hamptons trend towards modern, kitchen styles are moving away from ornately carved corbels and fussy detail to a sleeker, more transitional look. That eclecticism is also apparent in the work of our featured architect, Matthew Korn, and noted designer Greg Lanza, whose traditional decor looks simply awesome with a contemporary twist. Our hot spots in this issue include quick getaways for the guys and the gals.  The “boys” head to Pebble Beach or Scotland  to play golf while the “girls” work out and relax at the Mayflower Inn spa in Washington, CT or head to Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires.   With holidays on the horizon, we also bring you designer tips on holiday table decor. And for the health and diet conscious among us (who isn’t these days?) we’ve included expert tips from celebrity dietician Pnina Mohr on how to arrange your buffet so that guests fill up on the stuff that’s good for you first.  Separately in the haute food department, we dip into the ultimate delicacy -- caviar. When it comes to top of the line cars, Rolls Royce and Bentley are the classic kings.  We’ll show you the best of the best, from the new 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe (internet price: $509,400) to the 2013 Bentley Continental GT (listed at $212,380) from North Shore’s commodious new Bespoke Motor Group showroom in Jericho. Either one would look perfect in front of our featured property, a turreted Normandy-style stone mansion on three-plus manicured acres in classy Old Brookville. The elegantly outfitted six bedroom home is the epitome of luxury. From the brick barrel ceiling in the kitchen, with twin islands and twin chandeliers to the master suite with sitting room, double-sided fireplace and French doors opening onto a balcony overlooking a pristine lawn with English gardens, a pool and sizable cabana, this home shouts perfection. Take a peek inside. Happy reading! Happy fall!

ARCHITECTURAL VISIONS

MATTHEW KORN: A PASSION FOR ECLECTIC DESIGN By CARA S. TRAGER IT ’S IMPOSSIBLE TO IMAGINE Matthew Korn working in any field but architecture. More than his avocation, architecture is Korn’s passion, and it’s evident in whatever he does and wherever he goes — whether pouring over blueprints on his sleek granite-topped conference table, reading issues of Architectural Digest and Architectural Record, navigating leafy back roads or traipsing among urban spires. “My eyes are never shut,” said Korn. “Whenever I am driving, traveling and walking, there’s never a moment when I am not looking at the architecture or photographing it with my phone.” Since opening his eponymous practice 21 years ago in Roslyn, Korn has left his artistic imprint on Long Island’s residential landscape, as well as in Manhattan, Westchester, upstate New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. He designs some 15 new homes a year — not including countless interior renovations and additions, such as dens, secondfloor dormers, cabanas, gazebos and 10-car garages. His 12 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

drawings can translate into construction costs that range anywhere from $200 per square foot to more that $500 per square foot, excluding landscaping. Among Korn’s largest and most elaborate assignments was a 16,000 square-foot custom residential home in Oyster Bay Cove. Completed in 2008, the mansion features a plethora of architectural features, including a spacious

courtyard framed by the main house, a three-car garage and conservatory. About a decade ago, in Old Westbury, he adjoined two houses on adjacent properties with a breezeway. Its bluestone path served as the rooftop of a tunnel that linked the structures underground and led to a subterranean racquetball court, indoor pool and spa. Word-of-mouth recommendations account for the lion’s share of Korn’s projects, and oftentimes, satisfied homeowners also contract Matthew Korn Architecture, P.C. for their corporate and professional addresses. Residential projects account for 80 percent of Korn’s business while commercial venues, such as office buildings, restaurants and medical offices, represent the balance. In his designs, Korn favors a “site sensitive” approach, employing architectural techniques that coalesce to maximize light and views to enhance a home’s enjoyment and luxury sensibility. A recent project for a 10-room waterfront estate in Sag Harbor brought the sunlit ocean indoors, with most of the living spaces, including many of

the five bedrooms, overlooking the sea and its seemingly seamless connection to an infinity pool. The Brooklyn native credits his father, who owned a driving school but was handy around the house, with giving him the crucial tech gene while his youthful fascination with construction sites fueled his interest in building and architecture. Summertime work with a carpenter near his family’s Catskills vacation home turned those interests into his passions. After graduating from New York City’s gifted Brooklyn Technical High School, Korn majored in business economics in college, and in 1986, he earned a master’s degree in architecture at the University of Buffalo. Korn has since developed a signature style that runs to eclectic American design. His projects incorporate a range of architectural elements, such as sculptural masonry chimneys and turrets capped with copper roofs, which come together to form dwellings with extraordinary curb appeal. “It’s a melting pot of styles, but it must have an architectural clarity,” said Korn, “and the same amount of time I spend on developing an interesting design for the home’s front I also give to all sides of the home’s façade.” Interiors are fashioned for a luxe lifestyle. His drawings provide a “specific axis throughout the house,” as in open foyers or large galleys, which are designed for flow and for people to experience the space “emotionally and physically,” Korn said. “It feels good and people don’t know why.” In recent years, his residential projects, particularly those on the North Shore, have become more complicated and detail-oriented. Media and billiard rooms and bars are commanding large spaces as home offices and libraries

get down-sized. Increasingly, too, Korn’s blueprints are providing for athletic amenities 10 feet below the basement. These underground spaces typically include an indoor pool and racquetball and basketball courts that require ceilings as high as 22 feet, he said. In such instances, an elevator is often de rigueur. “With architecture,” said Korn, “it’s very evident what you create — because you see it and experience it, which is the best thing about the profession.” Korn’s corporate digs — a charming yet spacious stone-facade house on Old Northern Boulevard in Roslyn — showcases his vision and creativity. Its muted tones, 10-foot coffered ceilings and heavyweight, eight-foot, three-panel doors convey a transitional scheme with a tilt toward modernism. The corner property reveals

In his designs, Korn favors a “site sensitive” approach, employing architectural techniques that coalesce to maximize light and views to enhance a home’s enjoyment and luxury sensibility. A recent project for a 10-room waterfront estate in Sag Harbor brought the sunlit ocean indoors, with most of the living spaces, including many of the five bedrooms, overlooking the sea and its seemingly seamless connection to an infinity pool. no evidence of its former incarnation, a fire-damaged, vacant building or its stints as a repair shop for trolley cars, a toy factory, cabinetry workshop and customframing business. Korn rents out a portion of the two-story, 5,000-squarefoot space to four companies — a window and door supplier, a landscape architect, a furniture showroom and a real estate developer. “There’s a certain synergy among us all,” he said. For Korn, architecture is more than form following function. It’s a people profession, and as he tells it, his creations aren’t a solo act. Rather, they are a “composition” of his design, input from the homeowner and the talents of a myriad of individuals, including builders, landscape designers and his five employees, he explained. “Architecture is a team effort,” said Korn, expressing gratitude for “the wonderful people” around him. Away from the drafting table and the design magazines, he enjoys creating fusion dishes in the kitchen, boating on Long Island Sound on summer evenings and enjoying the fresh mountain air of the Catskills. Korn, who lives in Roslyn with his wife, Zina, and their three children, also seeks to make a difference and voluntarily designs handicap-accessible homes for wounded veterans. His charitable efforts support the mission of Building Homes for Heroes, a non-profit organization that retrofits and builds homes for veterans who have been severely injured and disabled in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and their families.

DESIGNER SHOWCASE GREG LANZA HAS A PASSION for the “unexpected.” Setting a bronze rabbit on a foyer table; putting tubular light bulbs in a classic chandelier or placing a driftwood lamp in a formal living room reflect the Gold Coast interior designer’s signature “outside-of-the-box” style. Eclectically mixing traditional with contemporary insures that “you don’t get a tiresome look, while avoiding overly trendy,” said Lanza, who was raised in staid Locust Valley. He points out that contemporary is not “thrown in just to be modern, but it must be modern with a history.” Take for example, contemporary design motifs found in today’s textiles, stone and metal work. Typically, these decorative designs “have historical roots, referencing a pattern from a Venetian cathedral or a Moroccan mosque,” ex-

environment lasting longer than a four-hour event,” said Lanza,. He went on to establish Greg Lanza Interior Design in 1994. Working from an office in his 1900s federal-style home in Glen Cove along with two design assistants, Lanza plans the interiors of roughly eight to 10 homes each year from Manhattan to the Hamptons and West Palm Beach. The bulk of his time is spent working on ground-up construction and major renovations primarily in the North Shore communities of Muttontown, Mill Neck and Lloyd Harbor. Less frequently he tackles smaller decorating projects, though sometimes when he’s initially hired to redecorate one room, he ends up overhauling an entire residence. Additionally, he consults on interior design for the restaurant and retail industries in Long Island and Florida.

Determining clients’ decorating and design preferences typically comes down to asking a few simple questions: “I ask them what vacations inspire them or their favorite vacation destination, be it Italy, Spain or France,” Lanza said. “I’ll ask them about their favorite restaurant interior or a hotel they love staying in.” Earlier this year the designer opened an accent furniture and home accessories boutique in Locust Valley. Lanza said he rarely shops with clients but will show them a portfolio of “images and inspirations” on his iPad, detailing a couple of interiors with a chandelier or two, a rug, paintings and a table. “It’s more of a montage and the presentation gets tightened as we go,” he said. “I give them my vision of the interior first and I’m spot-on 99 percent of the time because I read people very well.”

DESIGNER SPACES: Greg Lanza’s Unconventional Signature Style By DONNA KUTT NAHAS

plained Lanza, who has worked on designer showcases in Manhattan and the Hamptons. “For contemporary design to be successful, it must reflect or incorporate an element from a notable past source.” Creativity helps. The designer sometimes embraces materials not traditionally used in home decorating, such as recycled vinyl for a wall covering, recycled wood or stainless steel and relishes “mixing things.” “I might use something that is dedicated for a commercial application like a restaurant or hotel and make it work in a residential setting, without making it look like Vegas,” he said. Some of the latest design trends making a comeback already figure into his design repertoire, such as mixing traditional lines with organic shapes, such as the “Egg chair,” which made its debut in the 1950s, he said. “Ten years ago, people brought modern into their traditional; now they will soon be bringing traditional into modern.” But when it comes to choosing a color palette, this unconventional designer tends toward neutrals like beige—not the muddy café latte colors or the mocha and espressos in vogue 10 years ago— but the tan or sand with crisp whites and a “punch of color.” A blue room with solid masses of blue, gray and brown void of patterns, he explained, can also have a “neutrality to it because there’s not a lot going on.” “People have told me I am a master of color and space relations. It’s an inherent quality,” said Lanza, who hails from a family of commercial artists, illustrators, couture designers and chefs. After studying design at New York Institute of Technology, Lanza had his sights set on a career in advertising. Instead, he went to work for a friend designing venues for “large budget” parties, such as the New York City Ballet’s Opening Night Gala and celebrity birthday bashes. “Creating designs for special events was exciting, but I felt it would be more rewarding to create an

Designing

a space, Lanza said, is not merely filling a room but “creating an environment and an overall feeling when you walk into a room. People strive to build their dream home, their castle, so why not hire a designer to execute the vision and make it extraordinary.”

When his clients’ tastes are at odds with his penchant for clean lines he “challenges himself.” Once when a client requested Art Deco, a style to which he’s not partial, he researched the design details of the period and “wowed them with something they didn’t expect.” Designing a space, Lanza said, is not merely filling a room but “creating an environment and an overall feeling when you walk into a room. People strive to build their dream home, their castle, so why not hire a designer to execute the vision and make it extraordinary.” SE

BESPOKE MOTOR GROUP:

AN üBER-LUXURY CAR DEALERSHIP By LAURIE NADEL

JERICHO. They are sexy. They are sleek and oh so sophisticated. If you have to ask the price, you probably can’t afford one. James Bond drove a Bentley. In fact, Ian Fleming’s secret agent 007 owned several, starting with a 1930 Bentley convertible. Shaquille O’Neal’s has a Superman logo on the front grill. L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant, Law and Order SVU star Ice-T and rapper Jay-Z also drive Bentleys. (By the way, the rapper Ludacris owns one in platinum.) But the regal Bentley is not just for the guys. The Queen of England received two for her Golden Jubilee, the 50th anniversary of her reign as Queen. At her request, the rear doors were heightened so Her Majesty could stand before exiting the royal vehicle. When it comes to owning a Bentley, Rolls-Royce, or Lamborghini, check out the merchandise at Bespoke Motor Group in Jericho. Not only will you find upwards of 45 exquisite Bentleys on the showroom floor, but a fine selection of Rolls-Royce motor cars as well. The distinguished Lamborghini, favored by Nicholas Cage and David Beckham, arrives this fall. 20 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

Bespoke Motor Group’s 9,200 square-foot space is the largest Rolls-Royce showroom in North America and the second largest in the world. Bigger by a mere 300 square-feet is the one in Abu Dhabi. “A different demographic,” says David Archibald, President of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North America. Indeed. The world’s largest collection of Rolls-Royce motor cars belongs to the neighboring Sultan of Brunei. Not quite your average oil sheik. Here at home, Donald Trump collects them, of course. American Idol talent judge Simon Cowell is also a devotee. Sylvester Stallone owns a platinum Rolls-Royce Phantom, and Snoop Dog has a white Phantom. Elvis owned a 1966 Silver Cloud and Michael Jackson owned three: a Phantom, Silver Spur, and a Silver Seraph. John Lennon had his painted in psychedelic colors with a back seat that converted to a double bed. An irate Londoner waved her umbrella at him, shouting, “How dare you do this to a Rolls-Royce?” (And no wonder: As a journalist in London, I saw pedestrians stop to gaze in reverence whenever a Rolls-Royce moved majestically down a narrow English lane.)

The New York metropolitan area is one of the top three U.S. markets. Not surprisingly, the other two are Florida and southern California. “We have coverage in Manhattan and Jericho is easier to get to than the Hamptons,” said Mr. Archibald. “Long Island clients own homes all over the U.S. They spend part of the year in the Hamptons and months of the year following the sun. They take their cars with them.” Michael Todd, manager of Bespoke Motor Group’s Bentley division, said, “We have the wealth and assets so it’s the perfect demographic for the luxury client.” The past two years have been good for sales. “If the economy is growing at 2 percent, Bentley has grown at 30 percent,” said Antoine Dominic, owner and operator of Bespoke Motor Group. “Productivity, corporate earnings and profitability are growing.” More positives in the upper brackets translate to favorable shifts in social attitudes among the wealthy. “For a very short period after 2009, we felt that a lot of clients didn’t even want to take their cars out. It was a social acceptance thing,” said Mr. Todd. But the tide has been turning. He said, “We are seeing a lot more social acceptance come back in a big way.” That translates to busy times for Bespoke. “We delivered a Bentley to a 24-year old who sold an app to Apple. He’s taking a couple of other cars, as well,” said Mr. Todd, who described their customer base as “a wide selection of people.” Celebrities, entrepreneurs, and executives now gravitate to the redesigned Rolls- Royce Phantom and Bentley Continental GT and GTC. As Mr. Dominic put it, “This is not your father’s Rolls-Royce.” Bentley and Rolls-Royce are known for an exceptional level of customization dubbed the “bespoke experience.” Senior sales specialist Nichole Ehlers uses an advanced computer modeling system called “The Configurator” to build a digital version of your fantasy car that is accurate down to the cross-stitching on your future seat belts. “Clients enjoy this process because when the car comes in, it’s theirs,” she said. Recently, an interior designer from Manhattan spent four hours building the car of her dreams. “We want to make sure that customers leave here saying, ‘Wow!’” said Mr. Todd. To that end, the Bespoke team also introduced an club concept with an onsite café. En route to the Hamptons, customers can take a break from traffic at the seasonal Bespoke Friday barbecue. “We want customers to bring their friends and enjoy,” said Mr. Dominic. “At the end of the day, these two brands make a statement about being successful. And who doesn’t want to be successful?” SE

TABLETOP FIREPLACES

THE NEW INDOOR GLOW By M.C. SUSSMAN

These days, the beauty of fire can be anywhere.  Instead of a stack of  artsy books, a vase or candlesticks adding interest to your cocktail table, imagine flames leaping from a tabletop fireplace designed to be used indoors. Or, rather than hanging a painting on the wall, flames dance inside the frame of a ventless fireplace.   “It creates an ambience,” said Anthony Mendola, manager of NYC Fireplaces and Outdoor Kitchens in Maspeth, Queens. While fascination with fire has never dimmed, today’s fireplaces have morphed from a needed source of heat and light to an alluring accessory designed to be a tranquil focal point in any room, with warmth as a bonus.  Once upon a time, indoor fireplaces only burned wood. But that meant finding the proper wood, chopping it,  hauling it indoors and trying to get it stay lit. Too much trouble, too much mess, homeowners said, and often didn’t bother to use it. Along came natural gas burning fireplaces. At first the flames were puny and the logs were a poor imitation of wood, Anthony said, but

with time the resemblance improved and the flames that flickered and danced at the touch of a remote control looked realistic. The gas fireplaces came in a growing number of styles, many contemporary and linear. They leaped in popularity for fireplaces in living rooms, family rooms and master suites, whether just to gaze at the flames or for additional heat. Electric fireplaces could be wall mounted and have a traditional look, but they didn’t fare as well: the flame just looks too fake. “It’s a ribbon that reflects the light and makes it look like a flame, but it doesn’t look like a real flame,” Anthony says. Then the outdoor fireplace craze began, with an emphasis on firepits to gather around as well as large fireplaces. Soon there were “fire features” to dazzle guests poolside, incorporating waterfalls and fire. And in outdoor living room areas, firetables -- dining tables with center firepits fueled by gas or propane  that burned sparkling, reflective fire resistant glass  -- provided ambience and warmth,though making s’mores is not advised lest the marshmallow drip on the glass chips or burner.   Smaller outdoor tabletop fireplaces with cut glass or gems were designed to sit on end tables or coffee tables; others were wall mounted.

24 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

In the last three years new technologies have made it possible for fireplaces to be used as outdoor accessories or inside any room in the house with neither smoke, odor nor ash. Fueled by corn-based , eco-friendly bio-ethanol poured into a small reservoir or as gel like the sterno units for heating buffet trays, they produce a ribbon of flame.  “You light the flame there and it makes the flame twirl in the glass enclosure,” Anthony said. Some styles are perfect for centerpieces, others small enough for a shelf, built into cocktail tables, or large enough to stand on the floor or be wall mounted. While the bio-ethanol doesn’t heat up a room, standing in front of it provides some warmth. “The technology is there,” Anthony said. “You can put a fireplace in any room; before you had to pick up specific spot and frame out a wall.”  The new tabletop models come in a variety of styles. Some are contemporary with stainless steel and tempered glass in square, angular and round models; others resemble vases or rocks on fire. “It adds atmosphere,” Anthony says. “It could be a focal point of a room. And it’s a place to gather around.”   The effect is serene, like putting candles around the room, but as Anthony put it, “It’s a nicer flame and they have nicer enclosures.”  SE

HOLIDAY DÉCOR

Turning your Dining Room into a Designer Showcase By LINDA SASLOW So... you’ve decided to host a dinner party or have family and close friends over for a Thanksgiving holiday dinner. The menu is planned, the guests invited, and now it’s time to focus on sprucing -- and spicing -- up your dining room for the holidays.  Long before the appetizer will be served, your taste in home décor will make a first impression on your guests. The tabletop will likely be the first thing they notice. From the plates, silverware and glassware to table linens, floral arrangements and accent pieces — every detail is an opportunity to showcase your personal style, set the mood, and make your guests feel warm and welcome. Transforming your dining room into a designer showcase in time for the holidays can be a cinch.  Here are some ideas from several of Long Island’s most creative experts.

Add warmth with a palette of autumn colors.  Regardless of whether your dining room is modern or traditional, great autumn colors can re-invent the room. Andrea Correale, owner of Elegant Affairs, said that earthy tones such as deep orange, rust, and goldenrod — in solids, plaids, or interesting

patterns — can be used in tablecloths, napkins and floral arrangements to bring instant warmth to your dining room. For a pretty touch, try amber water glasses or dessert plates. Charger plates in autumn colors are a great addition for the holiday, and can be changed with every season.  Accent pieces make the biggest difference. Dressing a table is like dressing yourself, said Harley Scheck, manager of Sedoni Gallery in Huntington. Start with the little black dress, and invest in accessories to individualize the look. You can set the mood for the season by taking cues from nature. A beautiful glass bowl filled with walnuts or dried fruit, or a deep wood toned bowl filled with apples, are representative of autumn. And Harley’s favorite: large scale, footed hurricanes used individually or in groups of three. Layer sand in them and place a candle on top, use them as vases, or fill them with bunches of gourds for the holiday season. They add drama and color to a table, with a seasonal touch.  Add height to your table to create interest. This is a great way to add visual interest to a table, said Harley, and can be done with a pedestal, footed bowl or candlesticks of varying heights. But, she cautioned, make sure that guests are able to see one another.  Corrine Futerman, owner of Corrine’s Concepts in Catering, suggests creating a bi-level table by placing a box in the center, covering it with beautiful linens and highlighting the platform with a floral arrangement or a glass vase filled with apples. A second level is also a perfect addition to a buffet table. The platform can even feature a decorative basket filled with rolls. Candles, candles, candles! It can be votive candles strategically placed on a table, scented candles in a pumpkin spice to go with the season, or electric candles that won’t drip. A grouping of candlesticks of varying heights adds interest to any table. Harley’s rule: always group in odd numbers! Lighting changes the mood of a room. A dimmer is a must in any dining room, Andrea said. If your dining room has lamps, using amber bulbs changes the total look. Warm, beautiful lamp shades that can go

over a chandelier are a good investment to set a special mood. For a large table, twin chandeliers are all the rage. Mix and Match. Everything doesn’t have to be matchymatchy, said Harley. Mixing modern glass and metal with rustic pottery can give your room a fresh look. Set a reclaimed wooden basket on a table along with your fine china and crystal to add interest. Personal place cards make your guests feel special. Following cocktails in the living room, when guests head to the dining room for dinner they may not be sure where to sit, said Andrea. Having named place cards at each setting can alleviate any tension, and at the same time, add a decorative touch to the table.   Printed menu cards will tantalize your guests. For a sit-down dinner, Harley suggests placing a menu card at each guest’s table setting. It lets them know what is coming and sparks conversation. For a buffet, a decorative frame on the table adds interest, helps guests identify the foods, and is tantalizing! For guests who are watching their weight, there are subtle ways to set a table for success. Holiday time can be especially challenging for many who are trying to watch their weight, said Pnina Mohr, a registered dietician and nutritionist. But there are helpful strategies in setting a table. Among Pnina’s suggestions: use tall and narrow drinking glasses, which are esthetically pleasing but hold less. Serve a holiday dinner on nine-inch plates instead of the traditional eleven inches. And for dessert, use smaller bowls, while saving the larger ones for salad. If your holiday dinner is a buffet, Pnina recommends setting it up by starting with colorful vegetables and salads, allowing guests to begin to fill their plates with healthier choices, and leave the comfort foods for the end of the table, when their plates will be almost full.  Add a collection of oil misters to your holiday table, which can be filled with a variety of olive and sesame oils, as well as gourmet vinegars, to be sprayed on salads in a controlled amount instead of the more fattening dressings. They look like perfume bottles and are not only practical, but also a “must have” for a beautiful table. SE

LUXURY SUITES

BARCLAYS CENTER:

A NEW WORLD OF SPORTS AND ENTERTAINMENT …IN BROOKLYN By LINDA TAGLIAFERRO THOSE LOOKING FOR LUXURY in a sports and entertainment venue need venture no further than the new Barclays Center in — yes — Brooklyn. Just a brief drive from the North Shore of Long Island, the new major sports and entertainment center opened with a splash on September 28 with a performance by the rapper Jay-Z.   The new home of the Brooklyn Nets, Barclays Center puts a greater emphasis on sumptuousness with five levels and more than 100 luxury suites,  18,200 seats for basketball games and 19,000 seats for concerts as well as a variety of clubs and restaurants. A star-studded schedule including over 200 events is planned for the

32 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

first year, including performances by Andrea Bocelli, Barbara Streisand, Bob Dylan and Justin Bieber.  For more intimate entertainment, the immense arena can be transformed into a 6000-seat venue within its walls: the Cushman & Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center.  “A curtaining system comes across the lower bowl and literally cuts the arena in half,” said Fred Mangione, the venue’s Chief Marketing Officer.  The theater opens with a performance by Grammy Award-winning R&B singer/songwriter John Legend on October 29, 2012. Unlike arenas with penthouse level suites far above what’s happening, “A Level” luxury suites at the Bar-

clays Center start 23 rows up from the event floor on the sides of the building. The arena’s 100-plus luxury suites dwarf the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum cache of 32 luxury suites. In Queens, Citi Field’s clientele choose from 39 Empire Suites and five Party Suites.  “Our suites are located in a circular platform in the building,” explained Mangione. “Above the A Level, the B Level Suites run, as we say in basketball terminology, from baseline to baseline.” General seating is positioned above the two suite levels.   “In many other arenas, even though their suites are luxurious, you’re further away from the action. Here, we offer the unique opportunity of luxury plus proximity to events.”  The most discerning patrons may consider the top 11 exclusive suites, dubbed “The Vault,” at the event level. “It’s backstage and underneath the building,” said Mangione, “where suite holders can entertain pre- and postevent.”  These softly lit, 300-square foot suites, replete with flat-screen televisions and ultra-modern lounge seating, intimate bar and tables, accom-

modate eight guests. Vault suite holders are entitled to eight tickets in the first 10 rows to all events. They also have exclusive access to the Armand de Brignac Champagne Bar and a private club and restaurant.   And even their own door. The suite holder experience starts with a dedicated VIP entrance. “You’re led to a concierge who awaits your arrival,” explained Mangione, “and escorted to your suite.” For help with reservations for black car service to and from the arena, suite holders can use Barclays Center’s Luxury Attaché concierge service. Arena clubs include the Courtside Club adjacent to The Vault and the North/South clubs for premium ticket holders. The most elite offering, the 40/40 Club & Restaurant, is reserved for suite holders desiring a formal sit-down dinner before events. Its contemporary design incorporates superb views of the basketball court, and a sleek, illuminated amber resin bar counter. Prices average $250,000 annually for general suites and $550,000 per year for The Vault suites, which tops CNBC.com’s number one on its list of

the most expensive luxury suites, the $500,000 suites at the 2012 Super Bowl at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.  “We like to get an idea of the person’s needs, what they’re looking for, how often they plan on utilizing their suites,” Mangione said, “and from there, we’ll walk them into one of our products.” The 675,000 square foot center is the first of its kind in the metro region since 1968 when the latest incarnation of Madison Square Garden opened. Following the convenient to public transportation theme, the Barclays Center is located above the Long Island Rail Road’s Atlantic Terminal at Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues.  The $1 billion arena is poised to become the centerpiece of a 22-acre housing and office complex called Atlantic Yards, a project of developer Forest City Ratner Companies, whose credits include the contemporary Manhattan headquarters of The New York Times on 41st Street. The development, which will be built over the next two decades, promises to transform a once lackluster section of Brooklyn into a vibrant hub, with 16 high-rise buildings anchored by Barclays Center. The arena’s iconic design features a

gleaming glass-and-steel latticework façade.  A huge canopy spans 85 feet beyond the main entrance and passersby can view the scoreboard from the imposing main entrance. It is a collaboration between architectural firms AECOM and SHoP Architects.  Family-centered shows include Disney on Ice. Sports run the gamut from major equestrian show jumping to boxing, tennis and professional hockey matches.   Food offerings are varied, depending on the event,” Mangione said. “For basketball games, high-end cuisine will include premium steaks and the like, but for children’s events, the menu will reflect that audience’s preferences.” And those wishing to turn a jaunt to the new venue into an overnight getaway can reserve a room a mile away at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, which is partnering with the Barclays Center. Or hop into a waiting limousine and head home to the Gold Coast. Barclays Center is located at 620 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. To purchase tickets, visit www.barclayscenter.com. For more information on suites, contact Fred Mangione at (718) 942-9602. SE

TRAVEL

Golf Getaways: T H E U LT I M AT E “ M A N - C AT I O N ” By Linda Saslow

FOR STEPHEN SIEGEL, a Gold Coast gastroenterologist, nothing compares to a golf getaway with his son and son-in-law. “We don’t have to put the cap on the toothpaste if we don’t feel like it,” he says. “It’s a little window of being able to do what we did in the days before we were all married.” Burt Rapoport, an entrepreneur, restaurateur and avid golfer, says the outings are “all about camaraderie,” he explained it this way: “It’s about hanging out with the guys, laughing, not showering if you don’t want to, and not hearing any nagging for a few days. It’s just a time for boys to be boys.” For many guys, the ultimate trip is a golf getaway. Beyond golfing, it’s about life and quality bonding over beer, wings 36 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

and a favorite cigar. It’s a time to not worry about pretending that you’re interested in viewing a museum exhibit, going shopping or standing on line at a tourist attraction. Instead, the most pressing dilemma is about which course to play, how to get out of the sand trap, and how to squeeze in as many holes as possible. It’s a “man-cation” like no other. There are many amazing golf courses throughout the United States and around the world, and hundreds of great destination options for both public and private links, locally, across the country and abroad. Here are five of our favorite: Pebble Beach: Monterey, California Legendary people are drawn to this

legendary setting on the Pacific coast. The home of what has been called “America’s Greatest Golf Course,” Pebble Beach is a small coastal resort destination and an unincorporated community in Monterey, California. Throughout history, Pebble Beach has attracted extraordinary visitors-from Samuel F.B. Morse to Clint Eastwood, Teddy Roosevelt to Jay Leno, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Pebble Beach has hosted some of golf’s biggest tournaments--including five US Open Championships. It consists of five public courses, including Pebble Beach Golf Links, ranked first by Golf Digest among America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses. Spyglass Hill has been rated as one of the toughest courses in the world. The Links

at Spanish Bay is a true Scottish-style links course, and the Del Monte course is the oldest golf course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi. Last but not least is the Peter Hay Golf Course, the only ninehole, par-three golf course open to the public on the Monterey Peninsula. When your golfing day is done, there are more than a dozen options for dining. The resort’s newest restaurant, The Bench, opened this summer with an eclectic menu and a view of the 18th hole. Getaway packages allow full use of a spa, the beach and tennis club. Barefoot Resort & Golf: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina This distinctive seaside resort combines

a subtropical climate, versatile terrain and proximity to the ocean, creating a paradise for golfers and the perfect setting for four of the coast’s leading golf layouts. Dave Genevro, general manager at the Barefoot Resort, explained, “It’s one-stop shopping. You can stay at one place to play four different courses, and golf packages can be customized for your group’s needs. There are more than 1100 restaurants in Myrtle Beach, and so many options for great entertainment.” Myrtle Beach’s Fantastic Four at the Barefoot Resort—The Norman, Love, Fazio and Dye courses—were designed by golf’s most inspired architects: Greg Norman, Davis Love

Throughout history, Pebble Beach has attracted extraordinary visitors--from Samuel F.B. Morse to Clint Eastwood, Teddy Roosevelt to Jay Leno, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

III, Tom Fazio and Pete Dye and have been rated by Golf Digest as among “best places to play” for both average golfers and those with low handicaps. The Boulders: Scottsdale, Arizona Voted as two of the top 20 golf courses in Arizona by Golf Week Magazine, the Boulders, a desert hide-away, is a semi-private country club for resort guests and club members. Its two 18-hole championship courses, nestled among 12 million year-old granite boulder formations in the Sonoran desert, have won Golf Magazine’s Gold Medal Award multiple times. The Boulders is one of only five resorts awarded this prestigious award every year since its inception in 1988. One par 72, the other par 71, both courses were designed by Jay Moorish and are known for their rugged beauty and considered the most demanding in the southwest. But while playing on either course, golfers need to keep their eyes on more than their ball – just in case a bobcat or coyote drops by. Resort guests can reserve tee time up to 90 days in advance. After golf, pampering is in order. The Boulders’ 33,000 square foot Golden Door Spa offers massages as well as Native American specialty wraps and therapies. There is also a fitness center for invigorating workouts, a tennis garden and a pool nestled against the ancient boulders. St. Andrews, Scotland: Old Course Edinburgh, one of Europe’s most enchanting capital cities, is also the gateway to East Lothian and Scotland’s Historic Golf Coast. St. Andrews Links, often called “The Home of Golf,” has been a golf destination for 600 years. Its seven golf courses make up the largest public golf complex in Europe. Among them is the world renowned Old Course. It has been the host of the Open Championship more

times than any other venue, and host for its 25th time in 2015. In the 1700s, the Old Course consisted of 22 holes with golfers playing the same 11 holes going out and in. But the golfers decided that the first 4 (which were also the last 4) were too short, and should be made into two holes instead of four. This reduced the number to 18. The number stuck, and that is how today’s standard round of golf was created. The Old Course is at the heart of the links, but alongside are five other 18-hole courses. Booking tee times is easier than you might think – they can all be reserved in advance. Casa de Campo; Dominican Republic A tropical gem on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic, the 7000- acre Casa de Campo, a top travel destination, is often referred to as the Caribbean’s most complete resort. It is undoubtedly a playground with world-class toys and accommodations. Sand and sea, hill and valley, challenge and celebration; the thrill of the game of golf reveals itself across three Championship golf courses and 63 holes, all designed by Golf Hall of Fame member Pete Dye. Golfers can choose to challenge their game on the Caribbean’s top golf courses -Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore or The Links. Casa De Campo was voted the world’s Leading Golf Resort for the fifth consecutive year by travel agents worldwide at the annual World Travel Awards. The resort offers special packages for golf buddies, including a stay at a five-star hotel and a variety of dining options. After a round of golf, there are plenty of activities besides a margarita at the swim-up bar. Try tennis, sport shooting, horse-back riding, a work out at the fitness center, water sports at the private beach, or a soothing massage at the Casa de Campo spa. SE

Spa Breaks: The Best Girlfriend Getaways By M.C. SUSSMAN

SOMETIMES A MANI-PEDI and lunch with a buddy just isn’t enough. That’s when Karen Kurland of Great Neck heads, best friend in tow, to Atlantic City. At the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and its adjacent sister property, The Water Club, the action in the casino is non stop, the boutiques are trendy and the indoor pool is an oasis, making a spa break even sweeter. “It’s enjoyable,” Kurland says. Kurland goes on at least two spa weekends a year, with her BFF on one jaunt and joining her mom and daughter on the other. They play roulette and slots, dine at restaurants like Wolfgang Puck and Bobby Flay, and relax in the quiet 32nd and 33rd floor Immersion Spa, with its lounges with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, a 25-yard infinity edge pool, whirlpool, steam room and a wellappointed fitness center. 38 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

“It’s quality time,” Kurland says. “It’s girl time. You can have conversations without all the distractions of home and top it all off with a massage.” Though it may only last a few days, for many women a spa break is the best vacation. It’s girlfriend time, a grown up version of a pajama party and a respite from taking care of kids, husbands and a home. Some spa-cations include just pampering treatments; others add-in hard core workouts, yoga, hiking, horseback riding, skiing or gambling. Among the relaxation treatments at the Immersion Spa at The Water Club at Borgata  are conditioning body wraps and scrubs, ayurvedic therapies, healing hot stone therapy, Swedish, deep tissue and foot massages, prenatal massages and “Table Thai Bodywork,” a type of “assisted Yoga”   with rhythmic compressions blended with stretch-

ing techniques and breath-work. Other signature treatments include a bamboo lemongrass exfoliating scrub and an almond body buff. Great spas and resorts with spas can be found from Montauk to the Maldives. But for a quick or weekend getaway, there are plenty of choices nearby. And a few hours in the car can be enjoyable,  a time for in-depth conversation or singing all the way. Here are a few other favorites, easily accessible places for a girls’ spa break:   At the Mayflower Inn and Spa in Washington, Connecticut, spa director Helen Brown says some groups of girlfriends have been coming for several years, originally for one woman’s birthday, and now for each of their celebrations. Another

gaggle has gathered at this luxurious haven for relaxation once a month since college. And on a more solemn note, girlfriends gathered at the spa for a last hurrah and to say goodbye to a friend who was terminally ill. Sometimes just two best friends book a spa break together; for significant birthdays and other special occasions, some reserve all of the inn’s 30 rooms, each of which is outfitted with a queen bed. A few also have thick futons. Besides pampering treatments, the women can go hiking, biking, kayaking, cross country skiing, snow shoeing or do archery or go flyfishing in the Shepaug River at the nearby Steep Rock Nature Preserve. Among the more sedate activities at the inn are watercolor classes, a knitting circle and flower arranging or walking the inn’s labyrinth,  Shakespeare garden and poet’s maze. Some girlfriends go for makeup lessons together; others take Zumba, yoga, a barre class or go for a swim in the indoor or outdoor pool. Afterwards, they gather on the porch or in the library for cocktails or go shopping or to galleries in nearby Washington or Litchfield. While the usual stay is two nights, Brown encourages guests to come earlier than the 3 p.m. check in and stay past the noon check. “It really extends their stay on either side of their room nights.” At Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires, “girlfriends getaways are one of the main reasons guests visit,” says Meredith Ford, a spokesperson for the Lenox, Massachusetts resort, including mom getaways, birthdays, family reunions and multi-generational trips including mother, daughter and granddaughter. They can share in activities together like seasonal snowshoeing and skiing, and in warmer weather, group kayaking or stand up paddle boarding. Or the ladies have the freedom to explore their personal interests such as a high ropes challenge course, an energizing World Beat” drummers fitness class,  hands on healthy cooking classes , arts and crafts  and pampering spa treatments, as well as for the “incredible food.”  “We have something for everyone.” And there’s a 15 percent discount for groups of five to seven; more for larger groups. Though a stroll on the beach may require bundling up this time of year,  the Sea Water Spa at Gurney’s Inn Resort Spa & Conference Center in Montauk is warm and cozy. The spa uses sea water in the Olympic-size indoor heated pool and Roman baths and there’s also a sauna and steam room. Afterwards, guests schmooze while they gaze at the Atlantic Ocean,  “sunbathe” or relax on a lounge in the glass-enclosed pool deck or workout in the fitness center. And shopping in tony East Hampton is just minutes away.  SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 39

Its ice-fishing sheds, the fences built of old skis and the circa-dated colonial homes jeweled in icicles--the permanent decoration of the season. Towns have a Saturday Evening Post kind of patina.    The tallest peak in the Northeast is actually in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, and yet, Vermont gets the crowds. Vermont has 18 destination ski areas, among the greatest concentrations of skiing facilities anywhere. Every moun40 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

tain has an endearing quirk. At Stowe, in the north, most of the trails were cut by hand decades ago, some with the help of oxen rather than by bulldozers, which gives each a

handcrafted, no-two-alike quality. At Mad River Glen, you can ride a rare single chairlift. You’d have to go to Alaska to find the only other one. Killington, the East Coast’s largest resort, was founded by a 25-year-old named Preston Leete Smith on a shoestring budget. Smith’s many contributions to the industry, from snowmaking innovations to the introduction of the ubiquitous wire ticket wicket, led to his induction into the U. S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum in Michigan.   The sport is integral to the state’s economy and its psyche. Evidence of this Yankee love of schuss is everywhere. There’s a Vermont Ski Museum with its own Hall of Fame in Stowe. And among the state’s historic markers, a special one in Woodstock commemorates the site of the

country’s first rope tow in 1934. The first chairlift was installed six years later on Mount Mansfield. Even snowboarding has its origins here. An enterprising snow bum named Jake Burton Carpenter is credited with pioneering the modern day incarnation of the sport in Londonderry 35 years ago.   Killington is known for its deep natural snow and extensive snowmaking system. The arsenal of snow canons kicks in with the first freeze of the fall. Killington can’t compete with the Rockies in elevation but it boasts an impressive stat nonetheless. Its vertical footage—the difference in elevation between the top of the highest lift and the bottom of the lowest lift—is chief in the Northeast and not too shabby compared to some of its western counterparts. Killington’s vert is 3,050 versus, say, Aspen’s at 3,267.    On this particular day, Vermont is cold. So cold that the U.S. Postal Service is delivering cocoa and coffee to letter carriers along their routes. An arctic air mass from Canada has temperatures dipping below zero at the peak. This goes with the territory. In frostbite weather, the secret of subzero happiness on lengthy runs is foot warmers--and the heated express gondolas that whisk skiers to the summit. Actually, one of the summits: Killington consists of six mountains. Get separated from your skiing buddies and you can wind up at an entirely different base.   There’s something amazing about layering on sweaters, long underwear, a neck warmer, mask, hat, liners and gloves and still be able to stream down a mountain light as a paper airplane. That’s about the moment you stop thinking about the plummeting mercury and start appreciating about how sweet it is cruising down narrow, tree-lined trails with only the sound of your own edges

crunching on the hard pack.   There are more than 140 trails at this resort served by 22 lifts. For mogul lovers, Killington has the steepest bump run in the East, the notorious Outer Limits. Snowboarders? A terrain park called The Stash with more than 50 nature-inspired features.   In his book “It’s a Slippery Slope,” the late Spalding Gray wrote this about skiing: “During those rare moments when I’m in balance, I feel hints of perfection.” For me that perfect moment comes riding up in the mountain. The snow is beginning to fall, and chunky flakes start drifting inside the window of my glass-enclosed gondola. Who needs some dime-store snow globe to remember this? I’m living it.   I admit to loving the end-of-day exhaustion that feels like the best combination of a good massage and a warm Jacuzzi. After wearing myself out on the mountain, the slope-side Killington Grand Resort Hotel with its massive fieldstone fireplace is a great place to wind down. Over a bar-menu plate of pork spare ribs in--what else?--maple barbecue sauce, I study the trail makeup. That’s all it takes to get a conversation going. A mophaired 40-something named Hank has an opinion.   “Tomorrow, you have to try Outer Limits” he says.  Hank lives an endless winter fantasy. He spends six warm-weather months working in construction, a job that serves to subsidize his transcontinental ski habit. He’s got a season pass to Killington in the East and one to Steamboat in the West.   I locate Outer Limits on the map. It’s that hardcore double diamond mogul slope. I hesitate, but Hank will hear none of it. “You can do it, “ he says. The bartender refills my beer glass and nods. And tomorrow I think I will. SE

KILLINGTON MOUNTAIN INDULGENCES   Ledgewood Yurt Dinner A snowcat-drawn sleigh whisks diners up to a yurt tucked into the mountain for a five-course menu of locally sourced ingredients and live music. December through March, weather permitting.   Killington Grand Spa This luxury full-service spa incorporates indigenous Vermont products like maple syrup, honey and wildflowers in its treatments. www.killington.com   Elsewhere in Vermont Ski Country:   Stowe Mountain Lodge Concierge Services This lavish stone and timber lodge recently underwent an extensive 30-month renovation. Send your skis ahead and boots will be heated, equipment tuned and transported to the slopes for you by ski sherpas. stowemountainlodge.com   Sugarbush Mountainside Dining The resort’s twelve-person luxury snowcat zips up the mountain for fireside dinners at Allyn’s Lodge. The ski lodge is transformed into intimate, European-style bistro with a locally sourced dinner by executive chef Gerry Nooney, whose farm-to-table philosophy earned him Vermont Chef of the Year in 2009. After dinner, guests have the option of skiing down the mountain by moonlight (and headlamp) with guides. www.sugarbush.com

PERFECTION IN OLD BROOKVILLE By M.C. SUSSMAN

FROM THE STONE COLUMNS and gated entryway to the English gardens and spacious cabana, this nearly new stone manor home on a quiet cul de sac is the epitome of luxury. French Normandy-style on the outside; Italian-inspired on the inside, this six bedroom, six full and three half bath Old Brookville mansion with 12 foot ceilings and five fireplaces is an unparalleled beauty.   Set on 3.34 pristinely manicured acres with an in-ground pool and putting green, outdoor kitchen, patios and covered outdoor living rooms, the elegant estate is the epitome of luxury. A gracious forecourt leads to a 30-foot high arched double front entry with a limestone surround, flanked to one side by a picturesque turret. In the 26-foot high foyer, exotic dark marble floors are accompanied by plaster walls, a gold leaf dome, extensive millwork and ornate ironwork on the curved staircase railing and arched French doors leading to the living room to one side and a baronial dining room to the other. Whereas the exterior has a French aura, the elegant yet livable interior was inspired by Italian design. Raised wood paneling and a herringbone patterned walnut floor add to the richness of the dining room. Twin crystal chandeliers accent the banquet-sized dining table. The tray ceiling is gold leaf, accented by cove lighting. Venetian plaster was used on the walls of the formal living room, with gold leaf and plaster detail 42 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

on the ceiling. A limestone fireplace is piped for both wood-burning and gas use. The cozy round interior of the turret in the front corner provides a quiet nook. The den is casually elegant, with a wet bar, custom walnut millwork, a coffered ceiling and a limestone fireplace with a large flat screen tv above. The mahogany library  has a fireplace with an exotic marble surround and opens onto an outdoor living room with a ceiling fan for warm days and an outdoor wood burning fireplace on cooler days. A jaw-dropping wow, the Tuscan-style kitchen is the heart of the home, with a brick barreled ceiling, copper farm sink, limestone floors, cherry perimeter cabinets, Wolf appliances and twin chandeliers over the two creamy wood  islands. The bronze marble countertops are paired with a sable onyx backsplash including a decorative onyx design  behind the industrial-size cooktop, and a built in coffee bar. A butler’s pantry between the kitchen and dining room has a wet bar and a wine refrigerator. Upstairs, the spacious master suite has a vaulted ceiling and a fireplace that opens to a sitting room on one side and the bedroom on the other. Two sets of French doors open onto a balcony overlooking the resort-like backyard. The master bath is spa-like, adorned in Calacutta marble with two separate vanities, a freestanding clawfoot Jacuzzi tub, huge shower and a separate water closet with bidet. Stone floors throughout the house have radiant heat and there are laundry rooms on every

Down the hall, a lounge or party room has a honey onyx backlit bar and high-back banquette seating done in a fake Bottega weave leather.  The wine cellar behind a glass door in one corner holds more than 500 bottles.   In the backyard, a bluestone patio leads to an English rose garden and a large in-ground pool with a spa with a spillover waterfall. Beyond is a five hole putting green, a sports court, a gas firepit and conversation area, and an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue, refrigerator and ice maker. Under the cabana’s deep overhang is an outdoor living and dining space complete with an outdoor television. Inside the cabana has a vaulted ceiling, a living room and full working kitchen, a bath decorated with glass tiles, changing and laundry rooms and a full basement to store outdoor furniture in winter.

GOURMET LUXURY

I N dulging in C av iar , the F inest D elicac y By CARA S. TRAGER Caviar has long enjoyed worldwide cachet as the uber-luxury delicacy. Its scarcity, prices and the way it’s traditionally served — on an elegant mother-of-pearl spoon – imbue “the sea’s black gold” with all the markings of the good life. Considered an acquired taste, the tiny, salty sturgeon eggs — not surprisingly — were once reserved for the royals. But in the 19th century when rivers in the United States were flush with sturgeon, America’s saloons dished out free lunches with caviar to induce thirst and pump up brew sales. And well before the royals and the cowboys, in the 4th Century BC, philosopher Aristotle wrote about caviar at elaborate Greek banquets. The fact is, caviar has been around longer than mankind, dating back 250 million years. Its prehistoric roots and scarcity afford the miniscule eggs a mystique that few, if any other, edibles enjoy. “There’s so little supply available,” said Ilya Panchernikov, managing director of Caviar Russe, which operates a Manhattan retail boutique and fine-dining restaurant, as well as mail-order and web-order businesses. Since 2005, the United States has banned the import of beluga sturgeon from the Caspian and Black Sea basins and any of its products, including the renowned beluga caviar. The measure is designed to protect beluga sturgeon, which is considered a threatened species under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. It affects beluga caviar from such places as Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Romania, the Russian Federation, Serbia and Ukraine. Caviar also owes its limited inventory — and resulting aura of exclusivity — to the whims of Mother Nature; it takes sturgeons anywhere from five to 14 years for females to harvest eggs. And because of “the volatile nature of the caviar business, prices can fluctuate dramatically on a year-to-year basis,” said Panchernikov. While caviar traditionally refers to eggs from sturgeon, it has also come to encompass other types of fish roe. According to Panchernikov, more than 20 different kinds of caviar exist. To connoisseurs, the delicate eggs most 62 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

worth their salt are Osetra, Sevruga, Siberian, Sterlet, Pacific Sturgeon, American Hackleback and American Paddle fish roe. Prices for top-shelf caviar can run as low as $30 for an ounce of American Paddle and soar to $595 per ounce for the exceptionally rare Almas Osetra, whose distinctive appearance — relatively large eggs with a golden albino hue — is matched by a light weight. Just like pricey diamonds and other fine gemstones, caviar is best purchased from a reputable source. They are highly perishable and have a limited shelf-line. “You want to make sure it isn’t lying around for awhile,” said Charles Gagliardo, who buys caviar for Citarella, the gourmet emporium and caterer in Manhattan and East Hampton. When customers purchase caviar at Caviar Russe, they are advised to store the product no more than 10 days in

the coldest part of the refrigerator and consume it with within three to five days of opening. Caviar Russe allows customers to taste the caviar before they purchase it, said Panchernikov, “so they know what they are walking away with.” As one of life’s finest indulgences, caviar makes any occasion a sumptuous event — whether a small holiday party, marriage proposal or milestone celebration. But at larger affairs, such as bar mitzvahs and, to a lesser extent, weddings, prices have increasingly driven caviar off the menu and sushi has taken its place, according to Andrea Correale, president of Elegant Affairs Inc., an upscale catering and event-planning firm in Glen Cove. It’s the rare party — one in 10 — where Elegant Affairs serves caviar today, she said. Yet when a host opts for it, only quality roe will do.

“People who go to the caviar bar are aficionados,” said Correale. There are many ways to serve caviar. Elegant Affairs, for example, offers the fish roe on potatoes and deviled eggs as well as in a dish with nachos, crème fraiche, chopped red onion and capers. Caviar Russe serves the exquisite eggs in a glass ramekin, on ice, and with toast points, crepe blinis, Yukon gold potatoes, crème fraiche and chives. A mother-ofpearl spoon enhances the experience. Panchernikov suggests pairing caviar with Dom Perignon champagne, a fine wine or an ice-cold premium vodka. As an extraordinary edible, caviar is blissfully enjoyed in a slow, deliberate manner. Citarella’s Gagliardo advises against chewing caviar in favor of placing the diminutive roe between the tongue and upper palate — not only to savor their taste and texture but to luxuriate in their gentle, flavorful burst.

Chris and Tony’s -Matty Sorrentino Helps Create a New Family-Style Favorite By M.C. SUSSMAN

LOOKING TO OPEN A NEW RESTAURANT? Want to serve your classic eggplant parmigiana to a different crowd every night? You might want to talk to Matthew Sorrentino. Matty, as Sorrentino is known, is a restaurant consultant  at the new Chris and Tony’s Restaurant and Lounge in Syosset as well as the more established 388 in Roslyn, Serrata in Long Beach and Oyster Bay and Ciros in Kings Park.  He earned his restaurateur pedigree at family-style Matteo’s, where he worked for his brother, Andrew, and his dad, Salvatore.  His family opened the first Matteo’s in Hewlett in 1990, eventually growing the chain to eight locations.     After the Sorrentino family sold Matteo’s in 2008, Matty went on his own as a consultant in 2010.   Chris Tarsi, an owner of Chris and Tony’s, hired Matty for “his knowledge; his experience.”  “He knows the business inside and out,” says Tarsi.  Sitting at a table near the open doors  at Chris and Tony’s on Jericho Turnpike on a recent afternoon, Matty says he eats out 7 nights a week, each at a different client. “I’m on call 24/7,” he says. “Like a psychiatrist.” His job includes a bit of pepper and a bit of salt: dispensing advice, redesigning the kitchen and dining room, decorating,  training staff,  weighing in on the menu and working with purveyors. The secret to running a good restaurant, Matty says, is “cleanliness, niceness and great food.” People want service when they go out to eat. The restaurant’s job is “to treat people as you want to be treated. You want to be treated nicely when you come to a restaurant; no one likes to hear ‘no.’”  Matty says. His job is easy “when you have a good kitchen backing you up.”    Even those who can’t be pleased, his toughest critics, “we kill them with kindness.” The similarity between all the restaurants Matty consults for is comfort and coziness. “I make them feel like home, make it a pleasant experience. People spend a 64 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

lot of money to go out and enjoy themselves,” whether they dine out once a day, once a month or once a year.  With the “rough economy,”  and lots of competition, he advises restaurants to cater to everyone and make the experience worth repeating. “You want them to have a memorable time; you want to do whatever you have to do to have them come back,” he says.

At Chris and Tony’s, that includes flat screen televisions throughout the dining rooms, and not all on the same channel. “It’s hard to get kids to come out when their show is on, a game is on, “Dancing With The Stars” or a political function or an awards night. If they are watching sports, the husbands don’t want to come out of the house. We want to make them as com-

fortable as possible -- as if they were in the house,” Matty adds. The restaurants he consults with all have party rooms and outside catering. They attract couples, singles, friends and families.   At Chris and Tony’s, they’re prepared for the health and diet conscious and all sorts of fussy eaters: the menu includes a “healthy corner” and several salads, includ-

THE SECRET TO RUNNING A GOOD RESTAURANT, MATTY SAYS, IS “CLEANLINESS, NICENESS AND GREAT FOOD.” ing the Stephanie salad with goat cheese, candied walnuts and dried cranberries and grape tomatoes.   Food is served family style, though 1/2 portions are available for those who don’t want to share. “Nothing is pre-cooked. If you don’t want salt or pepper or a spice in there, it is not a problem.  The menu includes gluten free pasta, whole wheat pasta and a large selection of fish, including  grilled branzino. For kids, there’s mac and cheese, mini sliders and chicken fingers with French fries.

Chef Tony Ambrosio hails from San Guiseppe Vesuviano, near Naples, Italy. He is adding a Mediterranean touch to the Italian restaurant with dishes like Shrimp Alessandra -- grilled shrimps with Mediterranean herbs in a Francesestyle sauce or his ‘ famous’  Orecchiette barese pasta with florets of broccoli rabe and homemade shredded veal sausage in a light garlic and oil.  Then there’s his veal chop stuffed with fontina cheese, porcini mushrooms and prosciutto de

parma served in a porcini mushroom reduction sauce. And to capture that feeling of family, Sunday dinner and comfort food, new world dishes such as kobe meatballs, sliders, chicken dumplings and braised short ribs are on the menu, along with tiramisu and zabaglione with berries for dessert.   Chris Tarsi explains it this way, “We made it a one stop place for everybody -- make your wife happy, your girlfriend happy, basically satisfy everyone.”

Now that Chris and Tony’s is successfully launched, Matty is looking to help other budding restaurateurs through his ms*as consulting group. “I’m available for people who want to get in the restaurant business,” he says. “I am available to help them.” Matty can be reached at 1-888-288-6901.

SUSSMAN Car showrooms are a great place for a party, particularly when the showroom is Rolls Royce Long Island transformed into a chic lounge, with white leather sofas , light up bars and flowers that add an elegant touch. More than 300 nattily dressed Rolls Royce aficionados attended the trendy launch cocktail party at the new uber-luxury Rolls Royce Long Island showroom in Jericho on May 31, mingling with David Archibald, president of Rolls Royce North America and Antoine Dominic, the owner and operator of Bespoke Motor Group’s 9200 square foot dealership. Highlighting the evening was the unveiling of the new Phantom Series II. A manager from Rolls Royce’s leather

factory in England gave a bespoke demonstration on different finishes. As the band New York Minute played, guests sipped two signature cocktails -- a rose champagne mixed with mango juice called The Spirit of Ecstasy or the Phantasm --a mixture of Grey Goose le Citron and seltzer with a splash of white cranberry juice and a twist of lime. They nibbled on passed hors d’oeuvres such as sesame tuna boxes, lime shrimp avocado shots, filet mignon with caramelized shallots and asparagus and gorgonzola canapés. A dessert buffet included lemon bars, mini cheesecakes, mini chocolate ganache cakes and rice pudding. A photo booth provided a dollop of fun and keepsakes from a memorable evening. And a new party venue was born. SE
