DESTINATIONS Nearby A SOUTH OF W E E K E N D If you’re heading to Miami Beach for a day of sunning, shopping or gallery hopping, why not make it a weekend? Head to trendy South of Fifth for some evening cocktails and fine dining, then stay the night so you can wake up and do it all over again. By Stephanie Lesser S TAY In tune with Miami’s artsy vibe and paying homage to the famed British Prime Minister, the Lord Balfour hotel is a mix of chic sophistication and light-hearted fun. The hotel features bold design elements throughout, like the 20 hands that hold mirrors and protrude from the lobby wall, or the portraits of beautiful tattooed women in each guest room. Add a gracious staff and a bar menu with tea-infused cocktails, and you’re in for a relaxing yet intriguing stay. 350 Ocean Drive www.lordbalfourmiami.com D I N E With a sultry ambiance and a first-class menu by Executive Chef Peter Vauthy, Red, the Steakhouse offers the perfect cocktail to start the night — the South of 5th made with Ciroc Coconut. Move on to the Tuna Tartare appetizer and your choice of Aged Certified Angus Beef® with a side of green beans with pine nuts. Want to really indulge? Try the Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese which Zagat calls the richest they’ve ever tasted. Finish with a surprising favorite: homemade doughnut holes with three dipping sauces. 119 Washington Avenue www.redthesteakhouse.com 96 september/october 2014 southfloridaluxuryguide.com
