If I hadn’t read British Vogue’s December issue of the top international emerging designers or been to Villa Azur’s anniversary party, I would have never known about the Venezuelan- born, now Miami fashion designer Sharon Osp. The word is getting around as this young, talented, quality priced fashion designer so deserves. And some clients don’t order one or two dresses, but even four at a time from Osp’s couture line. Her last Ready to Wear line sold out in no time. With the exception of the Vogue piece and another in Nexos, clients have all come through word of mouth.

From Bakehouse to Art House

If you’re involved or very interested in the art world in Miami, you know the Bakehouse Miami. And if you aren’t, you could think it’s a bakery. Actually, it was one of the first industrialized bakeries in Miami along with Holsum. Since 1985 the Art-Deco era building has been serving artists with studios and others who have access to using the organization’s dedicated spaces for making art. You may also buy directly from the artists there.  If you have any interest in art, you won’t want to miss a visit for one of their quarterly Open Studio evenings, where guests can visit all of the artists in their spaces.  They also offer classes, exhibits, and the space can be visited every day.

Maska, Best Indian Restaurant in Miami

Miami has an exceptional new option for Indian cuisine thanks to Hemant Mathur , the first Indian chef in the US to get a Michelin star. Owner and Executive Chef Mathur of widely acclaimed Devi and Tamarind restaurants in New York City, has brought his contemporary Indian cuisine to Midtown Miami. I’ve been to India numerous times, and say without hesitation that Maska is the best Indian restaurant in Miami. It also has an adjacent eatery for Indian street food, takeout and eatin.

AD LIB, Tops in the Gables

AD LIB Coral Gables is unlike any other restaurant I’ve been to in Miami of late. It reminded me of the restaurant of an exclusive club of the low key, well heeled. The cuisine is delicious and refined under the direction of Chef Patrick Rebholz and two time James Beard finalist Executive Pastry Chef Hedy Goldsmith. The service is quietly professional, decor comfortable and almost soothing, and we had no trouble having a conversation. A wonderful place for lunch with a deal too.
