Monkey Business in Palm Beach

Who knew? There are only two gravestones in the whole of Palm Beach Island, one of a dog and one of a monkey.

Buried next to each other are Laddie, the dog of socialites Rose and Morton Sachs and Johnnie Brown, Addison Mizner‘s spider monkey.

Mr. Mizner adored Johnnie Brown and would never go anywhere without him. At his passing Mr. Mizner was heartbroken and wanted to keep Johnnie Brown close, so he buried him in Piazza Torlonia just behind his Via Mizner house, today the location of Pizza al Fresco.

They must have really loved each other, as some of the employees at Pizza al Fresco swear they see the monkey ‘s ghost at night wandering, looking for his human companion, but I bet you that the poor thing is only trying to catch one of their deliciuos pizzas!

Johnny Brown

Hot on the Beach: 100 Montaditios

Want to spend an evening like a Miami Beach local?  Then save your Wednesdays for Happy Hour at 100 Montaditos. With their famous $1 Wednesday’s, who wouldn’t like to wind-down with a $2 glass of sangria and a $1 montadito*?

* spanish sandwich
100 montaditos

100 Montaditos on Lincoln Road is just one of many locations.

The menu is simple, yet has an array of choices for their Wednesday specials. They have 100 montaditos to choose from, all with different fillings, a few salad choices, delicious fries, Spanish beers, wines and sangrias.

The staff is constantly busy, but are friendly and try their best to make you feel at home. If they’re not running around, they’re dancing by the front door laughing with other customers who are waiting to be seated.

But the best feature about 100 Montaditos is the simplicity of it all. Bring friends from far and wide to experience an evening like a local at very reasonably priced meals, and it’s only few blocks from Babalu Miami.

Mina’s Mediterraneo

Mina’s Mediterraneo is one of the newest addition to Miami’s expanding culinary lansdscape. This is not just a must-try experience but a decidedly comfortable space where you may find yourself return to again and again.

#minasmiami #babalumiami #pinotgrigio

The menu is a hand-selected edit of Mediterranean’s best; here you’ll find recipes from Greece, Egypt, France and Italy to name a few.  Pizza, pasta, gyros or beef Bourguignon – a dish for everyone.

Conceived by Yasmine Kotb who stems from chef lineage (her mom Sonia still helps in the kitchen), Mina’s Mediterraneo strikes balance between the perfectly constructed dish and the pleasures of a home-cooked meal.

The wine list is nicely varied and reasonably priced: the service is excellent. Just add friends to fully enjoy.

South Florida Teasers – Palm Beach

It might be the end of summer for most of the Northern Hemisphere, but for Florida this is the beginning of our holiday season. With tropical rains giving way to South Florida’s more temperate climate, this is just about the only place you would want to be. It is also the best time of the year to explore. If you’re a nature lover, shopping addict, architecture or history buff – or all of the above, your options are abundant.

Worth Avenue, view from the Everglades Club.

For the perfect day trip, just over an hour drive north of Miami is Palm Beach, one of our favorites and must-see spots.

Founded by Henry Flagler in the late 1800’s as a resort destination, Palm Beach sits on a barrier island with one of the most expansive sandy beaches ever, and this is only the beginning. The Worth Avenue shopping destination is a genuine treasure. A consolidated version of Los Angeles’ Rodeo Drive, touting a selection of world-renowned brands, one-of-a-kind antique stores and children boutiques, Worth Avenue has something for everyone. After all, the island motto is: “the best of everything”.

Via Mizner, built in a Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Colonial styles by Architect Addison Mizner

Influenced by Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Colonial styles and envisioned largely by Architect Addison Mizner, Worth Avenue is flanked by the most picturesque lacework of “Vias”, yep, that’s the Italian name for street, with romantic names like Via Amore, Via Flora or Via Encantada, the perfect place to lose oneself.

Via Mizner represents the most distinguished and exclusive hide-away on Worth.  Exquisitely designed and the former residence of Mr. Mizner himself, you’ll find the vibrant outdoor Pizza al Fresco restaurant along with Renato‘s fine-dining establishment, both gently tucked away in beautiful Mediterranean style piazzas.  And guess what else is coming to Via Mizner this November….  stay tuned for more!

While perusing Worth Avenue. Don’t miss Acento boutique,  the showcase for designer jewelry hand-picked from around the world located in Via Bice. After that, head towards the Everglades Club, also designed by Addison Mizner and which represents one of the most exclusive and secretive clubs in the world.  On the way, stop at Spring Flowers, which purveys some of the most adorable children’s clothes. And the Ralph Lauren on Worth Avenue is not to be missed.

The town center of Palm Beach is also worth passing through, on the short drive north to view the famous Breakers Hotel, for it’s cool Mediterranean charm and scale.

There are lots of hidden gems to discover on your own – in a wonderful gem of a community that has been hidden in plain sight for over 100 years.
