Especial Edition Hotel Miami

O aclamado hotelier Ian Schrager é o nome por trás do novo Miami Beach Edition. Quase 20 anos atrás, Schrager dava novos ares à região mais badalada da Flórida com a inauguração do hoje icônico Hotel Delano. O espírito inovador e o estilo moderno do empresário marcam também essa sua nova aposta, que abriu as portas em dezembro de 2014 e veio para solidificar de vez o status cool que já rondava a região de Mid-Beach. A bandeira Edition é a mais exclusiva da rede Marriott e tem outras três unidades em Londres, Istambul e Nova York, além de muitas outras previstas para os próximos anos ao redor do mundo. Assim como suas propriedades-irmãs, o Miami Beach Edition transpira elegância e design elaborado. Já no lobby, seu estilo único se mostra por meio do chão de mármore branco em contraste com as enormes colunas douradas. Esses elementos já estavam presentes no edifício original, que abrigava o Hotel Seville desde 1955, e estão entre os detalhes que não puderam ser alterados para preservar o caráter histórico da construção. Imposição que acabou por criar uma mistura harmoniosa dos estilos vintage e moderno e que deu ao hotel um charme único. O décor clean dá o tom aos quartos, onde as cores claras e a madeira predominam, no melhor estilo beach chic. São 294 quartos, dos quais cerca de 20 bangalôs privativos – com quarto, sala de jantar, sala de estar e terraço. Nos bangalôs de dois andares, os hóspedes podem ainda desfrutar de um deck no andar de cima com piscina e vista deslumbrante para o mar. O intuito de Schrager era criar um hotel para uma geração que quer viver bem e aproveitar a vida ao máximo, seja no trabalho ou nas férias. Explica-se aí a preocupação com o conforto e com os mínimos detalhes, presentes em todas as áreas do hotel.

Encaixa- se também nesse conceito a área chamadade Basement, onde estão reunidas diversas opções de entretenimento, para hóspedes e não hóspedes. Fica ali a balada Basement Miami, pequena e intimista, onde DJs renomadosagitam a noite. Logo ao lado encontram- se o boliche e a pista de patinação no gelo, ambos na mesma atmosfera de badalação, com efeitos de luz e música a noite inteira. Um espaço concebido para a diversão e que promete ser mais um dos muitos hotspots da noite em Miami. Ainda no clima de descontração, outra das inovações do hotel é o chamado Sandbox. No chão de areia estão dispostos sofás e almofadas, além de redes penduradas nas palmeiras e um telão, que proporciona intimistas sessões de cinema ao ar livre. Puro charme. Em se tratando de Miami Beach, a piscina não poderia ser deixada de lado. Elas são duas: enormes, cercadas por espreguiçadeiras e com um bom bar na proximidade, para que os hóspedes revezem entre o sol e a água, sempre com um bom coquetel em mãos. O hotel esbanja ainda 6.500 metros quadrados de praia bem à sua frente – um dos maiores beachfronts de Miami – e um spa com nove salas de tratamento e um Hamman. No quesito gastronomia, o Edition está bem servido com dois restaurantes comandados pelo renomado chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Dentre eles, o Matador Room tem pratos inspirados na culinária espanhola, com toques da gastronomia caribenha e sul-americana. Já no Market at Edition a proposta é mais semelhante à de um café, com sanduíches, smoothies, sucos e uma vasta seleção de vinhos. Além deles, há ainda o Tropicale, com menu leve e fresco servido ao ar livre, e os bares que oferecem coquetéis refrescantes. Gostou tanto do Edition que quer fazer dele sua casa de veraneio? Sem problemas. O hotel dispõe de 26 residências privativas, disponíveis para compra. Os apartamentos variam entre 85 e 430 metros quadrados, e muitos deles possuem piscinas privativas e cozinha ao ar livre. Tudo seguindo o mesmo conceito de lifestyle, descontração e conforto que marca o hotel. Os apartamentos foram também idealizados por Schrager e realizados em parceria com o arquiteto John Pawson. Os proprietários podem desfrutar de todos os espaços e serviços do hotel, além de terem sua própria área de lazer privativa.

Don Angie – New York

Scott Tacinelli & Angie Rito open Don Angie in New York Husband and wife chefs reinvent Italian-American dining at their West Village destination.



A creative approach to Italian fare in New York

After becoming famous for creating chicken and parma pizza, a great success among the Americans, Scott Tacinelli and Angie Rito are responsible for a new dish that dominates the Instagram profiles of those who visit New York: Lasagna Pinwheels. This lasagna is served rolled up like a cinnamon bun, the most requested dish among visitors to the Don Angie restaurant, opened by the couple in 2017 in the West Village neighborhood. However, the pasta with a fun presentation is just one of the highlights of the creative menu that reflects the Italian-American origin of Scott and Angie. There, other classics of Italian cuisine blend into modern American cuisine. Among other sweethearts, Escargot Oregnata – in which shellfish from the Peconic Bay, on the coast of the state, are prepared in a Neapolitan way with garlic, oregano, and bread flour – and the handmade pasta menu is updated every season. The perfect order for those who can’t resist a night with lots of wine and quality food.

GRT Architects has injected the 60-seat interior of Don Angie with palpably Italian references phrased in a surprising and unfamiliar way. Guests are drawn to a rich and inviting interior with a contemporary color palette of greys, brass and subtle red accents. Carrara and dark Bardiglio marbles create a checkerboard pattern across the restaurant floor, one that is reminiscent of the classic Italian American tiled vinyl flooring.

Don Angie is open for dinner and brunch at the following times, and is located at 103 Greenwich Avenue in New York:

  • Sunday-Wednesday: 5:30pm-11:00pm
  • Thursday-Saturday: 5:30 pm-12:00am
  • Bar Opens at 5 pm

A Good Legacy

A vibrant atmosphere tempered with lots of music was the way the Legacy Records restaurant honored the label that inspired its name. After all, for many years, it housed the studio of Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music that deals with reissues of old recordings of artists like Billie Holiday, Tony Bennett, and Janis Joplin. Another attraction of the restaurant is that leading the hospitality team is simply the Swedish Arvid Rosengren, holder of the title of best sommelier in the world.

That is, satisfaction guaranteed for lovers of good music and quality wine. The menu signed by Chef Ryan Hardy, in turn, carries strong Mediterranean and Northern Italian influence, with tasty fish in grilled and raw versions, along with other seafood and plenty of pasta. All of this coupled with Henry Hall, Manhattan’s new luxury residential building designed by designer Ken Fulk, seeks to unite New York’s lively nightlife with the lifestyle of a boutique hotel.

Ever wondered what it would be like to enjoy a delicious dinner while having a breathtaking view of New York City? At the Manhatta restaurant and bar, opened mid-year on the 60th floor of a historic building in Lower Manhattan, it is possible. The Statue of Liberty and the famous Brooklyn bridges are some of the background cloths facilitated by the four glass facades that border the Union Square Hospitality Group’s restaurant and Bay Room event space. His name, therefore, was inspired by Walt Whitman’s celebrated poem “Mannahatta,” which says, “A city of swift and shining waters, a city of pinnacles and masts, a city nestled in bays, my city!” But the fascination of experience is not limited to the beauty of the city that never sleeps. The menu signed by Executive Chef Jason Pfeifer celebrates the best of modern American cuisine with a touch of French flair, while wine selection was thought to reflect the elegance of space combined with the intimacy of a neighborhood restaurant.

Manhatta offers a three-course, prix-fixe dining room menu as well as a more casual, a la carte menu available at the bar. The prix-fixe menu features dishes such as Peekytoe Crab with poached leeks and frizzled artichokes; Veal Blanquette with wilted greens and mushrooms; Lobster Quenelles with trumpet mushrooms and chervil; and Wagyu Bavette with Pommes Anna and Harbison cheese. For the sweet course, guests can choose from dishes such as a Warm Date Cake with crème Fraiche ice cream and whiskey sauce; Blackberries with walnut gelato and sabayon; and a Butterscotch Soufflé.

Manhatta’s bar is led by Beverage Director Matt Whitney, who most recently served as sommelier at The Modern. At Manhatta, he aims to parallel USHG’s down-to-earth hospitality ethos by offering an approachable and satisfying range of wine and spirits that accommodate a variety of drinking preferences. Manhatta’s cocktail menu is rooted in the classics with its signature Manhatta cocktail and other Manhattan variations, but it also offers seasonal riffs inspired by the city’s history. The wine program highlights various regions of France, and in particular Burgundy, and combines a diverse mix of classic and well-known labels while introducing guests to up-and-coming producers from their favorite regions.
