Its founder, along with Grupo Habita co-founder Rafael Micha, AGO Projects Rodman Primak and artist Tony Moxham were some long time residents who weighed in on this topic.

Heath Wagoner silversmith in T/The New York Times

The North Carolina-born metalsmith Heath Wagoner went to school to be a painter but, after he took a course in metalwork, changed majors. Now 35 and based in Brooklyn, Wagoner — whose résumé includes work for the jeweler Pamela Love and the clothing brand Dion Lee — specializes in handcrafted sterling silver and brass objects for the table, from custom flatware sets to condiment spoons. Many of the pieces in his collection are inspired by the sea; his father was a fisherman and crabber, and Wagoner was once an ocean rescue lifeguard. There are sterling silver cocktail picks fashioned after...

Washington D.C./Condé Nast Traveler

The year of 2023 was a blockbuster for the culinary landscape of Washington, DC. In February, The Bazaar by José Andrés debuted at the Waldorf Astoria, with a menu of American classics intended as an homage to the capital’s history. In July, Chef Makoto Okuwa’s fast-casual Japanese food hall, Love, Makoto, unveiled its sprawling space in the East End, near Chinatown, with a sushi bar, a yakiniku, and a sake-and-snack-dishing izakaya. The same month, Death & Co. brought its meticulously crafted libations to the city, aptly located in the spot that had been home to now shuttered local favorite Columbia...

Fun fact about Salvatore Ferragamo: he made his name and rose to great fame not in Italy, but in the United States. Specifically: Hollywood. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Ferragamo’s first store, on the corner of Hollywood and Las Palmas across from Grauman’s Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles. The brand is commemorating this centenary with “Salvatore Ferragamo 1898-1960,” a retrospective at the Museo Ferragamo in Florence. Read all about it here. ...

St. Regis Kanai/Alexa

When viewed from above, the new St. Regis Kanai resort resembles a deconstructed Olympic logo — a series of circular and semi-circular shapes set on the shores of the Riviera Maya in Mexico. It’s meant to be a celestial schematic, inspired by the 1,000-plus-star constellation Pleiades and designed by Edmonds International, which was challenged with building a resort that would incorporate — but not interfere with — a seemingly endless sea of protected mangroves that cover the area. The firm’s solution? A design that hovers over the trees, with a series of elevated wooden walkways connecting buildings and a beach. Read the...
