FROM THE PUB­LISHER

Ocean Drive - - Contents September 2017 -

Although sum­mer is com­ing to an end, we have plenty to look for­ward to as the cal­en­dar changes to Septem­ber. Fall means hot new fash­ion trends, culi­nary in­no­va­tions, and a va­ri­ety of events to be en­joyed un­der the bright Mi­ami sun.

While the tem­per­a­ture may not drop dra­mat­i­cally, you will de­tect a dif­fer­ence in the at­mos­phere as we gear up for the thrilling hap­pen­ings around town—start­ing with food. This month, the Magic City rev­els in Mi­ami Spice, an an­nual pro­mo­tion with restau­rants in every neigh­bor­hood in the 305 of­fer­ing cre­ative three-course menus pre­pared by our world-fa­mous chefs. My sug­ges­tion? Head to one (or all) of the din­ing des­ti­na­tions at the Fon­tainebleau Mi­ami Beach for some mouth­wa­ter­ing cui­sine and cock­tails (paired with spec­tac­u­lar views, no less). You won’t re­gret it.

Be­sides fill­ing up on top-notch fare, it’s also time to stock your closet with the lat­est and great­est styles. We can al­ways count on Mi­ami for the best fash­ion through­out the year, and this sea­son we’ll wel­come even more ex­cit­ing ad­di­tions. Up north, Aven­tura Mall is ready­ing a three­level ex­pan­sion that will in­clude a new ros­ter of stores and restau­rants. And of course, the ever-grow­ing Mi­ami De­sign Dis­trict con­tin­ues to pro­vide us with highly cov­eted pieces from the world’s top fash­ion houses. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for some fash­ion­able pop-ups hosted ex­clu­sively #ATMDD.

Speak­ing of style, we’re thrilled to fea­ture ac­tress and fash­ion­ista Nina Dobrev on our cover. The brunette beauty (who will star in the sci-fi thriller Flat­lin­ers—out Septem­ber 29) is just as stun­ning on the in­side as she is on the out­side, and we’re ex­cited to be able to share her story with you.

So whether you’re nosh­ing on food from our award-win­ning chefs or go­ing on a shop­ping spree at our on-trend bou­tiques, there’s no doubt Mi­ami is the place to be this month.

I hope to see you around town…
