JUST OPENED Just Opened Check out these places that have recently opened near you! Words by Matthew Weeks Brilliance New York Boutique + Salon 631 Lincoln Road Miami Beach, FL 33139 Phone: (786) 276-6389 Brilliance New York Boutique + Salon is a one-stop shop for every woman's beauty needs. Whether you crave the latest hair styling products, including diamond and clipless curling irons, or skin care items, such as top-of-the-line moisturizers, age- defying skin care, or luxurious facial masks and organic exfoliates, this boutique has everything. Once inside this polished palace, it's safe to say founders Eran Brosh, Udi Brosh and Nir Sharon accomplished creating a fully equipped boutique right in the heart of SoBe. Chopard Bal Harbour Shops, #127 9700 Collins Avenue Bal Harbour, FL 33154 Phone: (305) 868-8626 When's the last time you upgraded your watch? Probably longer than you'd like to admit. Thanks to summer's arrival catalyzing parties as often as your trips to the beach, it's time to invest in something special. Not only has Chopard produced quality, high-end timepieces since 1860, they also epitomize authenticity, craftsmanship and legacy. Chopard's most popular collections include their L.U.C. and Classic Racing lines available for both men and women. As the expression goes, time is money. Del Toro 1521 Alton Road, #318 Miami Beach, FL 33139 Phone: (888) 242-1112 Do you desire to be on the frontline of fashion footwear? If yes, visit Del Toro. Endorsed by none other than Miami's D-Wade (#3), Del Toro offers everything from classic slippers, vintage wingtips, futuristic sneakers, comfy drivers and accessories (limited only by your imagination). Their custom styles range from animal prints to camouflage to acid wash, and their sizes run a half-size small for men, yet hold form for women. Created by Matthew Chevallard, Nathanial Wish and James Bohannon, Del Toro represents what every local's feet should wear. Jelsomino 247 23 Street Miami Beach, FL 33139 Phone: (305) 673-7757 Jelsomino is a Russian karaoke bar nestled firmly in vibrant SoBe. Fully equipped with a floating stage for gutsy performers as well as numerous projectors to instigate the audience's vocal chords. Jelsomino's main room accommodates 80 guests alongside an endless parade of colorful drinks. This cozy larynx house also possesses four VIP rooms, each named after a different musical legend (ie, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Jim Morrison and Amy Winehouse). Therefore, the only question is: do you know which song you'll perform? Joe's Jeans Boutique 19501 Biscayne Boulevard Aventura, FL 33180 Phone: (305) 682-0005 In 2001, Joe Dahan started Joe's Jeans Boutique in a tiny LA design studio. Eleven years later, Joe's Jeans has become a nationally and internationally recognized brand found in high fashion markets such as NY, LA, MIA, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Known for tailoring denim specifically for body-specific fits, Joe's Jeans cuts sizes for women, men and children. Styles include straight leg, slim fit (and super slim), relaxed, bootcut and high water amongst others. Furthermore, I know all women will agree, there's nothing like a new pair of jeans. Kork Wine & Cheese 2 South Miami Avenue Miami, FL 33130 Phone: (305) 377-8899 First off, how often do you have the opportunity to visit an underground bomb shelter? Well, Kork Wine & Cheese is your chance to do just that as well as taste amazing artisan cheeses (Gorgonzola Dolce, Chimay Grand Cru, Port Wine Derby, Roquefort Blue, etc…) and sip succulent specimens of wine. This 3,000 square-foot haven also offers complimentary live weekend jazz as well as various forms of chocolate fondue and fruit platters. Even if you're not a wine connoisseur, your palate will still want to examine this place! Mare Nostrum 1111 Southwest 1 Avenue Miami, FL 33130 Phone: (786) 691-2770 Recently opened, Mare Nostrum (MN) is one of Miami's most colorful restaurants (lit with frosty blue lighting and draped in signature SoBe white linens). In addition to this establishment's friendly atmosphere, originating from its gregarious wait staff, MN offers incredible seafood dishes over breathtaking city views. Everything from their calamari and crab legs taste as fresh as the salty oceans they came from. Not only will you leave MN with a full belly, you'll also gain an appreciation for the Mediterranean's finest foods. Whole Foods Market South Beach 1020 Alton Road Miami Beach, FL 33139 Phone: (305) 938-2800 Whole Foods' SoBe opened in May, and the company is known for selling the highest quality natural and organic products. Items include everything from filet mignon to seared tuna and wild forest blackberries. Essentially, you can find something for breakfast, lunch and dinner (either prepackaged or ready for assembly). Whole Foods also caters to those with a sweet tooth. Personally, I fit into this category and recommend the watermelon taffy. If you are what you eat, then what does this make me? MIAMI LIVING 25
