The Louis Vuitton fragrance pop-up is making its way to the Americas after a global, five-city tour, which began in October and included stops at Printemps Haussmann and Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in Paris; Harrods in London; Shinsegae Gangnam in Seoul, and the Dubai Mall. The first U.S., in-store fragrance experience for the brand is scheduled to happen Thursday at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, California.

 

The shop will be open at the Segerstrom-family owned center from December 15, 2016 to July 1st, 2017.  The pop-up is making its way after a global, five-city tour, which began in October and included stops at Printemps Haussmann, and Le Bon Marche Rive Gauche in Paris; Harrods in London; Shinsegae Gangnam in Seoul, and the Dubai Mall.

The iconic Damier pattern will adorn the counters, and showcases a classical yet very modern interpretation of Louis Vuitton’s signatures. Two eye-catching Alzer Pyramids comprised of Louis Vuitton trunks enhanced by feminine florals will highlight both sides of the pop-up entrance.

 

Fragrances from the seven-piece collection include the airy “Rose des Vents,” the intoxicating “Turbulences”, the ecstasy of a first date night with “Dan la Peau” to the mindful immersion in nature with “Apogee”; from the self-revealing “Contre Moi” to an exploration of a dark side with “Matiere Noire” and the explosion of the senses with “Mille Feux”.

This is the first time in 70 years that the brand has created fragrances; its  “Je, tu, il” and “Heures D’Absence” perfumes, created in the late 20s, were staples back in the day. Its fragrance savior faire has been revived for modern times with the work of Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud.

Each fragrance in the Les Parfums Louis Vuitton collection comes in a 100-ml and 200-ml size, which retail for $240 and $350, respectively.

Miami will never experience Mexican cuisine the same after visiting OLLA (pronounced oi-ya). OLLA will celebrate the authenticity of Mexican roots and feature the diverse regional cuisines from Oaxaca to Puebla, Yucatan to Veracruz, and beyond while also using modern techniques and global influences. The meaning behind OLLA translates to a ceramic jar used for cooking where dishes will be served in shareable bowls for a family style experience. Here is more information about OLLA :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Chef Scott Linquist of taco wunderkinds Dos Caminos and Coyo is behind this one. He’s carved out a modest little spot on the locals end of Lincoln Road (which would be south, incidentally). Wood beam ceilings. Polished concrete floors. A large landscape mural inspired by Mexican artist Diego Rivera. That type of vibe. Walking in, you’ll find a long communal table. It’s a good place to find yourself after a long night. Mostly because the place is open until 5am. But also because of the pots of simmering menudo, the barbacoa lamb shoulder and the roasted pig cooked Yucatan-style you’ll have to choose from. Decisions are hard. And since you’ll be parched (you’ll be parched), there’s a full bar pouring sangritas, micheladas and margaritas into the wee hours." written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.

 

According to Eater :

"Scott Linquist — the man behind the popular taqueria, Coyo — is proving his Mexican cooking chops are much more vast than just tacos. Enter Olla (pronounced oi-ya) debuting on Lincoln Road this week. Named after the the ceramic jar used for cooking in Mexican cuisine, it promises to serve up "diverse regional cuisines from Oaxaca to Puebla, Yucatan to Veracruz, and beyond.” The expansive menu created by Linquist features a variety of small and large plates. On the smaller end are items like guacamole prepared table side, crudos, chapulines, and a Mexican Caesar salad. On the larger end expect a variety of moles sauces and protein-filled dishes made with everything from cuttlefish, to lamb shoulder to roasted pig, with plenty served “a la olla.” The beverage program highlights small batch spirits featuring a variety of tequila and mezcal alongside eclectic selections of wine and beer from Mexican and local brewers, plus a selection of cocktails." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According Food For Thoughts :

"The menu leads off with several "tarros," or jars, with a variety of different layered compositions inside. You hear so often these days about dishes "designed for sharing," when they are really nothing of the sort – either a few measly bites, invariably in a number not divisible by the number of diners at the table, or something so preciously constructed as to be impossible to split. These tarros are truly designed for sharing, and do it well. The "remolacha" has cubes of garnet and golden beets nestled over a walnut cream, topped with jewel-like pomegranate seeds and toasted walnuts, served with spears of pale endive. Scoop some into an endive spear; crunch; repeat. I liked how the combination of walnut and pomegranate echoed the traditional toppings for that chiles en nogada dish ingrained in my memory so many years ago."

Tocaya Organica is part of a movement of restaurants, farms, ranches and markets changing the way people think about and experience food. Our partnerships and commitment to sourcing whole food ingredients represents a fresh take on an industry that has long suffered from over-processed, unhealthy choices. We implement these ideals and positive environmental practices as we open new locations in great neighborhoods. Our business model represents the bridge between our flagship restaurant, Toca Madera in West Hollywood, CA and a convenient, healthy everyday restaurant focused on modern Mexican cuisine. Organic ingredients, farm-fed and free-range meats, sustainable seafood, and a full separate vegan menu are the backbone of the Toca Madera brand and with Tocaya we have brought all of these same values into a concept built around simplicity and accessibility.

Great Mexican food should not only taste great, it should utilize healthy ingredients sourced from sustainable environments. We found the right ranchers, the right partners, the right ingredients and got to work. What has followed since is a lifestyle, a menu revolution, a demand for better eating and a positive carbon imprint down to every last detail – it is our responsibility. We get it. We live it.

With an emphasis on bold flavor profiles, Tocaya Organica offers salads, tacos, bowls, burritos and wraps handmade daily by a chef-trained team. Combining modern flavors with the traditional ingredients that influenced early Mexican food – cacao, papaya, jicama, and chiles come together with tamarind, cilantro, and tomatoes to create taste combinations that infuse bold flavors into chicken, turkey, beef, fish, and vegetarian & Vegan dishes.

Made-from-scratch sauces, salsas, and dressings such as chipotle-lime sauce and grilled pineapple salsa are made fresh on site every morning with fresh produce, herbs, and spices.

Underscoring our commitment to serving natural and sustainable ingredients, Tocaya Organica procures meat that is fresh and never frozen, and is 100% percent free of hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. Organic produce is sourced locally whenever possible. Here is more information about Tocaya Organica:

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Remember 920 Grill? No? Anyway, this is where that was. Smack-dab in the middle of Lincoln Road. But things look considerably different from its Argentine predecessor. A lot of gleaming white subway tile and marble. Chevron wood walls. A bar. The bar part is comforting. They’ve got all the stuff you’d typically expect from a fine Mexican establishment—tacos, burritos, tamales, guac. But as the name implies, they’re putting a healthier spin on things via organic everything, sustainable everything... you get it. Basically, your chicken tinga tacos and carne-asada-stuffed burritos are pre-South-Beach-shenanigans-approved. Margaritas and micheladas: check. A churro waffle sandwich filled with salted caramel ice cream: of course. They also serve lunch, if you’re into lunch. What a world." written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.

 

According to Miami.com :

"Miami Beach club guy Chris Paciello and partner Mio Danilovic are opening Tocaya Organica, a modern organic Mexican concept hailing from Los Angeles, tomorrow, December 9, on Lincoln Road. “I’ve lived in Miami Beach for over a decade, and have felt a void when it comes to authentic and healthy Mexican restaurants.” said Paciello, who, along with Danilovic also owns Rockwell nightclub. “As a health-conscious eater in a city that values wellness, when I came across this concept, I was sure it would be a hit in Miami.” The chainlet boasts “a commitment to sourcing whole food organic ingredients, farm-fed and free-range meats, sustainable seafood, and a full separate vegan menu.” Made-from-scratch sauces, salsas, and dressings such as chipotle-lime sauce and grilled pineapple salsa are made fresh on site every morning with fresh produce, herbs, and spices. Tocaya Organica procures meat that is fresh and never frozen, and is 100% percent free of hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. Organic produce is sourced locally whenever possible. The restaurant will be is open from 11 a.m.- midnight Sunday-Thursday and from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. " written by Lesley Abravanel.

There's a new coffee shop that's just open at Wynwood. It is called Brothers and Brawlers. The coolest thing about this place is the fact that the space is a part motorcycle store, part boutique, part coffee shop. It is a Brandhouse for Dirocco Eyewear. Free shared work space, specialty coffee and shopping from curated independent brands. Here is more information about Brothers and Brawlers :

 

According to Eater :

"If you’ve made your way through Wynwood lately, odds are you’ve walked by Brothers and Brawlers, the warehouse decorated on the outside by a Stranger Things inspired alphabet wall. But inside the head scratching facade, lies a unique concept store space that is the brainchild of Sebastian Ramirez. Interwoven amongst the vintage motorcycles, racks of handmade clothes, sunglasses and bespoke tailoring studio, is a coffee bar that has quickly become the go-to spot to get a java fuel-up in the neighborhood. Manning the post is Panther Coffee vet Ryan Hall, who created Brother and Brawlers concise coffee menu focusing on a handful of espresso-based drinks using New York City favorite Eastlick Coffee and Miami’s own Panther Coffee. Each drink is tailored to the guest’s preference in coffee, sweet milk and foam, but cold brew, “original formula” Coca Cola and Sprite, along with a rotating daily doughnut by Ella Cafe are also on hand." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Herald :

"Imagine blending your favorite coffee shop, clothing store and man cave all into one? Sebastian Tatano-Ramirez had the same idea and his new concept store, Brothers & Brawlers in Wynwood, has brought the concept to life. Doughnuts included. Tatano-Ramirez started off with a sunglass line, Dirocco Eyewear, which he dubbed the first complete carbon design available on the market. Instead of selling his glasses to distributors around town, he created his own space to sell out of with a man’s touch. The space is big enough to fit a Land Rover — which he did, but then sold. It also has a suit room known as Brawlers Row; a coffee bar; and a space in the back to chill and take in all the action your eyes can handle. And, yes, everything in the store is for sale." written by CHRISTIAN PORTILLA.

 

According to Yelp :

"The coolest most original eyewear concept store in Miami and my favorite place to go work, have meetings, or just meet up with friends.  Really good coffee, amazing teas, and I just wanted to buy my husband everything in there!  If you haven't gone by, you must check it out! Miami needed a place like this". written by Chiara M. (rated 5 stars).

Each Cognac in The Time Collection is said to communicate a chapter in Louis XIII’s history. A new expression will be released under the range every two years. Back in 1569, on a battlefield in Jarnac, near the town of Cognac, a French royal military officer dropped a metal flask. The events that occurred at this medieval battle launched the story of the iconic Cognac, LOUIS XIII.

Stamped with the French monarchy’s fleur-de-lys, the flask laid buried in the soil until a farmer unearthed it in the mid-1800s. In 1850, cellar master Paul-Emile Rémy Martin, owner of the Rémy Martin cognac house, fell for the intricate allure of the flask and purchased it.

 

The acquisition proved historic. Inspired by its striking shape and regal fleur-de-lys medallions, he decided to create a decanter in its image for a special cognac composed with only the very oldest and rarest eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne found in his cellars. Thus, began the history of LOUIS XIII which has since conquered time and is enjoyed around the world.

Today, some 142 years later, LOUIS XIII celebrates its iconic history with “The Origin – 1874.” This exclusive decanter inaugurates a special series of limited editions, the Time Collection, each dedicated to a storied milepost in the brand’s legacy.

With the rich scents of honey and honeysuckle, plum and myrrh, leather and wood bark and passion fruits, the amber liquids of “The Origin – 1874” – LOUIS XIII’s signature blend of up to 1,200 Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie – rest in a pure Saint-Louis crystal decanter, which resembles the ancient flask that began the decorated story of LOUIS XIII.

 

The distinctive decanter features the original number of 13 dentelle spikes, as opposed to the 10 spikes included today. “The Origin – 1874” also features unique neck and collar seals of champagne gold as well as a mouth-blown stopper in the shape of an upturned decanter, the same design that crested the antique flask. The exquisite decanter is nestled in a champagne-hued metal coffret, whose elegant woven texture is reminiscent of the wicker baskets that the original bottles of LOUIS XIII were delivered in.

 

The Origin – 1874 carries an RRP of £4,300 (US$5,355).

Earlier this year, Rémy Martin opened a boutique in Beijing dedicated to Louis XIII Cognac, offering everything from miniature bottles to a six-litre Mathusalem.

THE CATCH OF THE DAY GETS ELEVATED TO DIZZYING HEIGHTS AT BAZAAR MAR, THE NEWEST ITERATION OF THE POPULAR BAZAAR BY JOSÉ ANDRÉS CONCEPT OF SLS HOTELS AND CHEF JOSÉ ANDRÉS. Located within the luxurious SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences in downtown Miami, the 210-seat Bazaar Mar evokes all the bounty of the oceans, with a seasonal emphasis on Miami and the Caribbean. As its name implies, (mar is Spanish for sea), the vibrant menu features everything from ‘sea snacks’ like ceviches, seaweeds and tiraditos to whole fish prepared in a variety of ways and a extensive raw bar. Hand-crafted cocktails join a curated list of Spanish and international wines to complement the cuisine. Here is more information about Bazaar-Mar :

 

According to Eater :

"Seafood is the star of José Andrés’ second Bazaar concept in Miami, Bazaar Mar, now open inside the newly opened SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences. As the name alludes, its menu focus will lean towards seafood served in his signature tapas style format. Think dishes like bacalao croquettes, sashimi, grilled whole fish, full raw bar offerings and for the more adventurous eater, offal seafood dishes like seared monkfish liver. Like all his Bazaar spaces, this one was designed by Philippe Starck, featuring decor inspired by famous sea ports from Mykonos to the South Pacific. The white and blue color palette reigns supreme, with marble table tops and floors and handprinted tiles by artist Sergio Mora with whimsical designs — mermaids, unicorns, and even Andrés himself can all be spotted if you look closely — found all over the walls of the massive 7,200-square-foot, 210-seat restaurant. Helping keep the room well lit are large windows and lamp shades signed by friends of the restaurant." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to New Times :

"The dishes are, as expected, an over the top celebration of sea life. Andres fashions mini fantasies for his dishes. A bagel and lox ($12), made with Russ & Daughters smoked salmon, air bread, cream cheese, and pickled onions, looks like a school of frolicking fish. A "classic" cobia ceviche ($26) is fashioned into one perfect rose and garnished with leche de tigre, nasturtium leaf, sweet potato, and corn nuts. A whole salt-baked red snapper ($65) is prepared with romesco sauce and mojo verde. Bazaar Mar also offers an extensive raw bar including oysters, sea urchin, and scallops. Also find an uni souffle and a whole fried lion fish ($38). If you prefer to stay on land, jamón ibérico de bellota Fermín, a 48-month cured ham from free-range, acorn-fed, black-footed Iberico pigs, is hand cut for $56 a serving." written by Laine Doss.

 

According to Yelp :

"My wife and a couple friends tried several different items on the menu and were blown away by the creativity, flavor, and satisfaction. First, when you walk into the restaurant you immediately realize you are in a different place. The tile on the floor and walls is full of art representing the sea and there are huge fish heads with horns on the wall inside the bar and near the kitchen. You also see the salt water tanks where they keep their prized sea food items alive until it is ready for your plate such as lobster, clams, and oysters. Our server was Amos (?), who was extremely helpful and truly added to the positive experience we had at bazaar mar. I can say with a straight face that this was the best meal of my life. Thank you bazaar mar and Croix for the amazing experience." written by Nick D. (rated 5 stars)

According to Urban Daddy :

"It’s very easy on the eyes. The Santorini-esque, whitewashed floors and cobalt-blue walls. The undulating trellis on the ceiling. The soft candlelight illuminating landscapes of the Greek Isles. Stop by for dinner, and bring that date. They’re doing the shared-plates thing with grilled octopus and oven-baked moussaka. Other shared plates to consider: The roasted manouri cheese with honey. The black ink orzo with langoustines. The crispy calamari. The grey mullet bottarga. They all play nicely with wine, by the way. Try to stay cool when people start smashing plates on the floor. You know that one Greek custom? They observe it every night here." written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.

 

According to Eater :

"Helmed by Greek native and chef de cuisine Anastasios Chasekioglou, the menu features many traditional flavors found throughout the Mediterranean, like grilled octopus with fava; roasted manouri cheese with honey and bee pollen; black ink orzo with langoustines; and semolina halva, a traditional Greek dessert, made with raisins, pine nuts, orange marmalade and Greek yogurt ice cream. The space was redesigned by Michael Wolk Design Associates, featuring both indoor-outdoor seating with bright blues and white decor that are the "contrasting colors of Santorini, Atlantikós” to keep the Greek theme going." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Worldwidegreeks :

"The new restaurant, Atlantikós, was designed by Michael Wolk Design Associates, who created the new concept over the restaurant space that was already there. The new restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating to give guests plenty of options. The decor itself was inspired by the island of Santorini and uses the traditional Greek colors of bright blue and white, which are the colors of the Greek flag and also common colors found throughout the island. The Bal Harbour, Florida website says that guests will be treated to, “an exquisite culinary experience,” and that the restaurant is, “the best restaurant in Miami.” They pride themselves on their high quality offerings, and are happy to share the Greek culture with their guests. The restaurant is currently open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at 9703 Collins Avenue in Bal Harbour, Florida. You don’t need to be a guest at the hotel in order to enjoy the cuisine!"
