The Deck, a New Fave

 

When I heard the name “The Deck Miami” and knew it was waterside, I was expecting the kind of very casual place you go to eat (rather than dine) in Key Biscayne or the Keys, a place that’s all about the view period. But then again, I heard the chef was Alfredo Alvarez, ex of Seasalt n Pepper (now Seaspice), then Palmeiras, so decided it definitely deserved a visit. It turned out I was right about the food but wrong about the ambiance. The Deck at Island Gardens has to be one of the most attractive (in a European way), stylish and casually elegant restaurants in Miami. And then there’s the spectacular view of the Miami skyline. I liked it so much, I immediately booked a return visit for when a New York friend is coming to town. Read Full Post & Comments »

Staycation: Palm Beach Part 1

Palm Beach is perfect. Lawns immaculate as putting greens. Flowers and trees landscaping homes that look like they’re straight out of Departures or Architectural Digest magazines.  Worth Avenue with its charming European-style garden courtyards, balconies overflowing with well-tended bougainvillea and shop sales staff that look like they just walked out of a Ralph Lauren ad.  And then there’s The Breakers, that’s one of the best landmark hotels in America. They said they reinvest a minimum of $25 million a year to keep it that way and that makes all the difference. Here’s the first in what will be a series on staycation South Florida.
