Social Eyes: Summer on the Way?
Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held
In Miami, how can we tell if summer is here? The party has moved inside… and the events and parties dwindle down to the tens instead of hundreds. But stylist Elysze Held was still out and about detailing the vast range of style in Miami.
Perez Art Museum hosted the launch of Miami’s own food impresario Lee Brian Schrager’s Fried & True cookbook; Chapman Partnership’s annual Take a Walk in her Shoes Luncheon at The Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne; The Mourning Family Foundation/HoneyShine Annual Hats Off Luncheon; and an excursion to New York and the Capital Opening of the Anna Wintour Costume Institute (and Iris/Carl Apfel Gallery) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Foodie Find: The Forge’s English Pea Ravioli
The Forge reigns supreme as Miami’s most decadent steakhouse but now, with a menu remake from executive chef Christopher Lee, the place is also serving selections that are succulent, satisfying and suitable for vegetarians. Sure, taking center stage is the 40-ounce dry aged prime tomahawk chop and the bone in dry aged porterhouse. And you can’t miss the seared foie gras with glazed doughnut and citrus. But a standout starter is the English Pea Ravioli with a sweet onion nage that’s foamed, making the sauce light but definitely not lacking (pictured).
