Best place to take a client – Joe’s Stone Crab. It’s a South Florida classic.
Favorite watering hole – Sugar, atop East, a Miami hotel in Brickell City Centre. Great view of the ever-changing downtown and Brickell skyline.
Favorite building – 1111 Lincoln Road garage, which is way more than a garage. I love the way it looks at night.
Best restaurant – Byblos Miami. The Mediterranean fusion menu is very different from anything around.
Weekend getaway – Last-minute cruise out of the Port of Miami, especially if it’s going to Cozumel or the Bahamas so I can get in some snorkeling with my kids.
Favorite place to vacation – South of France or Italy—can’t beat the food, and the Mediterranean water is unlike anything else.
BEST historical fact about Florida – It was the last state touching the Eastern seaboard to become a state.
WORST historical fact about Florida – In 2014, the historic Tobacco Road—a speakeasy during Prohibition—closed down to clear the way for Brickell City Centre.
Favorite city event – Art Basel international art fair.
Favorite historical resident – Al Capone.
Where to go after a win? – The Capital Grille steakhouse.
Where to go after a loss? – The golf course—to distract me.
Favorite thing about your office (besides your colleagues) – Shooting on our indoor basketball hoop.
Favorite breakfast spot – Grown. It serves healthy and amazing food.
Best place to reflect – Cuban Crafters Cigars, which has cigar rollers in the window.
Best view – From the Rusty Pelican looking back at Downtown Miami is still one of the best views after all these years—it’s been around since 1958.
Favorite park – Merrie Christmas Park. The gigantic banyan trees have been there since well before I existed.
Go-to sports venue – AAA is a blast. They have improved their concessions but if you make it down to Flagship or Hyde lounges, you are in for some entertainment.
Best place for people-watching – Lincoln Road, because it is crawling with people from all walks of life who somehow don’t seem to ever have to work during the day!
City’s best sports moment – 2006 NBA Finals, when we had Shaq and Zo and a young up-and-comer named Dwyane Wade.
City’s worst sports moment – Losing D-Wade and LeBron. OK, just losing D-Wade.
