It was a watershed moment. Acosta is the one and only Latino mem-ber of Trumps Cabinet. He survived the scrutiny that took down Trumps first choice for the job, multimillionaire Andrew Puzder. Puzder is the CEO of the parent company that owns Hardees and Carl Jr.s. Puzder withdrew his name from nomination on the eve of his confirma-tion hearing. The heat in the kitchen was more than he was prepared to take. Growing revelations about Puzder sug-gested he was ill-suited for the job. Newsweek reported Hardees and Carl Jr.s had been hit with more feder-al employment discrimination lawsuits than any other major U.S. hamburger chain.Ž He also ardently opposed an increase in the minimum wage while he was knocking down $4 million in annual salary and bonuses. His distaste for increasing wage rates for low-age workers made him look like an imperi-ous cheapskate. Nor did Puzder like the idea of expanding the number of workers quali-fying for overtime pay under a pro-posed Obama-era rule. And just to put an exclamation point on the questions regarding his nomination as a chief enforcer on behalf of American work-ers, he told a national magazine how excited he was that robots would one day displace all the pesky people toiling away in fast-food joints like his own. The man was not coy. Had he said, Off with their heads!Ž he would have sur-prised no one. By comparison, nominee No. 2, Alexander Acosta was a slam-dunk. His can-didacy generated a sigh of relief from the Senate committee. They wanted to get to yes. He is a Cuban-American, native of Miami, a graduate of Harvard and past dean of the College of Law at Florida International University. He has an impressive rsum regarding his professional career in public service, including serving as assistant attorney general in the U.S. Justice Departments Civil Rights Division under President George W. Bush. But Acosta had a downside. He proved adept at giving nonanswers to pointed questions regarding his enthusiasm for going after systemic abuse by employers of their employees. His muted replies cast doubt among those skeptical about how vigorously he would approach his secretarial duties should he get the job. Would he whole-heartedly commit to the agencys mission to foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seek-ers, and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employ-ment; and assure work-related benefits and rightsŽ? Well, The New York Times reported Acostas reply. Acosta said he would largely defer to Donald Trump „ and ultimately follow his directionŽ on an administrative agenda that includes slashing worker health and safety and job training, repealing overtime protections for up to 13 million people and rolling back fiduciary rules designed to protect workers and retirees from investment advisers conflicts of interest.Ž Mind you, the Department of Labor is already under siege. Massive budget cuts are proposed for the agency. And a retreat by executive order from fair employment policies and workers civil rights already undercut protections for millions of American workers. The only ingredients missing are assurances the ship will take on enough water to sink it and whether there is a captain at the helm ready to take the vessel to ground. Secretary Acosta was confirmed. He appears to be just the right man for the job. It is hard to reconcile DOLs stated mission with Acostas timidity and DOLs policy rollbacks. The creep back-ward includes nonenforcement of equal rights protections among companies doing business with the feds as pre-viously required, forcing arbitrations to be conducted in secrecy to resolve sexual harassment and gender discrimi-nation complaints against employers and refusing to protect workers from discrimination based on their sexual orientation. And thats just the short list. Meanwhile, America has been celebrating Labor Day for more than 100 years. It was once a day of parades, union locals marching, cheerful family picnics and flowery speeches in praise of the American worker. Today, the holi-day is repurposed as a shopping event many Americans can no longer afford. Ordinary workers once celebrated as the fount of Americas prosperity are labeled as takers.Ž And a livable wage and a decent standard of living have gone missing that represent historically the heart of the American Dream for millions of working families. The DOL says of Labor Day: The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pays tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nations strength, freedom and leadership „ the American worker.Ž But when you have, as Woody Guthrie sang, no do re mi,Ž it is a day hardly worth celebrating.

Here come the crowds, beginning only six or eight weeks away with their cars, their appetites and their money. With expectations of clean beaches and sun. Of wonderful food and relaxed rules. Of smil-ing waiters and good deals. And with them comes the challenge to every local business struggling to prosper: How can we win a share of the largesse snowbirds and winter visitors bring? How do we make them spend their money here and not there, to survive another year? Thats easy if youre bold enough to take my advice. But first, let me point out theres no precise accounting for taste, whimsy or appetite. If you sell ice cream, some of them will want donuts. If you sell bathing suits, some of them will want blue jeans. If you sell a Bouillabaisse of shrimp, littleneck clams, mussels, market fish, golden tomato saffron broth and spin-ach accompanied by charred cauliflower with smoked almond pesto and a couple glasses of Provencale rose at Table 26 in West Palm Beach, some of them will want barbecued ribs and white sandwich bread with a Pepsi from McCarters Ribs on Mar-tin Luther King Jr. B oulevard in the Dunbar section of Fort Myers, instead; or a sausage roll and puff pastry with a drawn pint of Smithwicks from Killkenny, Ire-land, at the Celtic Ray in Punta Gorda (God bless them); or perhaps a simple Ropa Vieja (Spanish for old clothesŽ) flank steak accompanied by a Malta or two at the Rumba Cuban Caf, in Naples. You just never know. What you can count on almost universally, however, is an innate human desire not just for a good deal but for something more „ a gift, an injection, a magic almost like second-coming religion delivered straight out of the deep blue sky. In short, a prize.Every business owner with any ambition to lure customers and money can step ahead of the competition by adver-tising a giveaway so unexpected, so extraordinary, that curious people will respond no matter what their tastes, proclivities or declivities. Here are three ideas at various price points, offered in my annual role as the Charitable Consultant at no cost to you except the psychic anguish of reading a column by a highly motivated, truly dedi-cated proletarian mother-trucker. As a general rule, I suggest advertising and offering these prizes to every 1,000th visitor to come through your doors or to make a reservation „ up to 2,000, 5,000 or even 10,000, say. You can repeat the process much later in the season to woo them back, if necessary: in February or March or even April. PRIZE ONE: A round trip for the family to Clyde Butchers Everglades Swamp Cottages and Bungalows. Tucked into 14 private acres surrounded by Everglades National Park, they lie just behind the gal-lery displaying his black-and-white images with the art of his wife, Nikki Butcher. The world-famous photographer lived here in comfort for decades, deep in the swamp off U.S. Route 41 some 36 miles west of Miami and 47 miles east of Naples, before moving to Venice, where he continues to work. This is the best way for prize-winners to discover a simple truth: The Everglades are nothing like they thought. Instead, they can be clean, cool and shim-mering in a watery beauty where deep wilderness lies only a hundred yards off the highway, not a hundred miles. But walk south from Clydes back door and youll travel about 50 miles before bump-ing into Florida Bay „ if you can make it that far. Total cost in season: About $600 for a one-bed, one-bath bungalow at two nights, or $1,050 in a larger place, at three nights. (For more information: PRIZE TWO: A round trip for the family to Jensens Captiva Island Beach and Marina Resorts, either on the gulf or on the bay. First of all, the Jensen broth-ers are the coolest three male siblings in the state of Florida. Second, they lead the unpredictable, frequent-but-unscheduled and highly spirited Marching Mullet-Band Sunset Parade, a 250-yard meander from the bayside cottages to the beach made up of any crowds who gather. The event looks like something out of the Fat Tues-day carnival in New Orleans. There are boats and fishing guides if you wish to include that option in the prize package „ and why not? Total cost for two to four or more with a two-night stay, in season: from less than $600 up. (For more information: THREE: A round trip for the family to Uncle Joes Fish Camp tucked up against the dike on the dead end of Griffin Road at Lake Okeechobee, just north of Clewiston, in Moore Haven. One of those down home spots that anglers and duck hunters come back to on family outings from generation to generation,Ž according to the Clewiston Chamber of Commerce. No frills, no fuss „ just good fishing and a cold beer afterwards.Ž Bring your own guitar or banjo „ you might find a kid sitting in a porch swing to play with. If you dont have a boat you can either rent one or fish from the little dock where bass and brim hang out. Cabins have TVs, air condition-ing and heat, with boat-ramp access to the rim canal only a few miles from Liberty Point on the lake. Total cost with a two-night stay, and a boat rental: About $350. (For more information: Good luck, and may joy and prosperity visit you in tandem this year. Q Yes, work for TrumpTreasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin took the highly unusual step over the weekend of publicly explaining why he wont resign. He responded to Yale classmates who had written an impassioned open let-ter urging him to quit in protest over what they called (ridiculously over-stating their case) President Donald Trumps support of Nazism and white supremacy.Ž There was no reason for Mnuchin „ a busy man and one of the most important economic officials on the planet „ to bother replying unless he feels a little defensive. After Charlottesville, the question of the propriety of serving in the Trump administration gained new salience. Rumors swirled that economic adviser Gary Cohn was on the verge of quitting in disgust, and liberal journalists called for all good men and women to jump ship. This is wrongheaded. Its much better for the country that as many responsible, talented people serve the Trump administration as possible. Even if it isnt easy. Working for Trump means being willing to put up with the possibility of humiliation of the sort that loyalist Attorney General Jeff Sessions suffered at the presidents hands. It means dancing around his out-rageous statements and pretending to work for a more normal president. And it means courting social disapproval. This cant be what a high-flying financier and movie producer like Steve Mnuchin signed up for. But any Trump official who doesnt think he is being forced to violate his personal con-science should stick it out. The presidency is an important institution, and whatever fantasies his ene-mies may have of a rapid ending to his tenure, Trump is president. He needs good advice and competent help. There are obviously limits to how much he can be controlled, but he is susceptible to advice. Its no accident that Trump hasnt withdrawn from NAFTA, pur-sued a trade war with China or knee-capped NATO. Surely, many of those around Trump enjoy the thrill of notoriety and prox-imity to power, as is true in any White House, but a sense of duty weighs as well. There are people inside the administration,Ž Anthony Scaramucci said during his turn as White House communications director, that think it is their job to save America from this president.Ž This puts it starkly and deri-sively, but no doubt accurately „ espe-cially when it comes to the generals. The portfolios of Secretary of Defense James Mattis and national security adviser H.R. McMaster include the most consequential matters of state, and John Kelly is now running the White House as chief of staff. The administrations credibility depends in large part on the service of these men. Its comparable to the moral power that David Petraeus assumed in 2007 when George W. Bush subcontracted making the public case for the Iraq War to him. If any of the generals, particularly John Kelly, were to quit and lambaste Trump on the way out the door, it might have a debilitating effect on his presi-dency. That sounds alluring to Trumps critics. But crippled presidencies arent good for the country, and Trump was duly elected. So the generals are right to stay and serve their country in this capacity. Someone has to do it. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

A6 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESSkin deep BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationDo the bacteria and other microbes living on your pets skin affect skin health? A professor of veterinary pathobiology at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medi-cine is studying the effects of the skin microbiome „ the community of micro-scopic bugsŽ that sublet space on the epidermis of cats, dogs, humans and other animals. Aline Rodrigues Hoffmann, DVM, was intrigued by papers she read a few years ago on the human skin microbiome. She immediately began thinking of ways to study the variety of organisms that inhabit dog and cat skin, and how they might affect or promote pet health. What do the millions of microorganisms on skin do? Theyre commensal, meaning they contribute to health and well-being through complex interactions with their host „ your dog, cat or yourself. The skin microbiome helps to modulate immune responses by influencing T-cell function and inflammatory response and promoting protective immunity against pathogens. Its also a factor in susceptibility to infec-tion and response to treatment for skin diseases. Bacteria, fungi and viruses are among the complex population of microorganisms that colonize normal skin. They contribute to skin health and help to prevent potential pathogens from moving in and taking over. Our ultimate goal was to find the commensal microbes, the beneficial microbes, that could potentially be used as a probiotic,Ž she says. This has already been done in the gastrointestinal tract. In the skin microbiome, we are still taking baby steps.Ž Studying the skins microbiome is not as straightforward as studying bacteria in the gut. Skin and hair are exposed to the environment, and factors including tem-perature and moisture may also influence which microorganisms live on the skin. In dogs and cats, for instance, Hoffmann found that fungi that are normally found in the environment are also found in large numbers on pet skin. That may be one of the reasons why some humans have allergic reactions to pets. Some of the common environmental fungi found on dogs and cats are the same ones that people tend to be allergic to. Interestingly, people who live with dogs have similar microbiota to their dogs. The same isnt true for people who have indoor cats. Thats probably because those cats dont have the same access to the outdoors as dogs, so they are less likely to influ-ence the diversity and makeup of the skin microbiome of the humans with whom they interact. Different areas of a healthy dogs body have different microbial populations. Areas with hair such as the groin, the ears or between the toes have greater microbial diversity than mucosal surfaces such as lips, nose, eyes and ears. Some cat breeds have skin microbiome differences as well. Hoffmann presented a study in April at the North American Der-matology Forum showing that Cornish rex and Devon rex cats had higher populations of Malassezia yeast than other cat breeds. And cats with allergies have a larger popu-lation of Staphylococcus species of bacte-ria. Over the entire body, allergic cats tend to have a less diverse population of micro-organisms than healthy animals. With rare exceptions, theres no reason to fear exposure to a pets microbiota. We no longer want to eliminate those pathogens or microbes,Ž Hoffman says. We want to make sure they are in bal-ance.Ž Figuring out what that balance should be is the next step. So is rethinking the use of antimicrobial medications or figuring out how to use them more effectively. I think we are now finding out we dont need to treat as aggressively as we were doing before,Ž she says. Hopefully that will ultimately reduce use of antibiotics and all the problems that we see with it.Ž Q Pets of the Week>> Champ is an 11-yearold, 18-pound mixed-breed male dog that is a loving pooch.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYcollecting was sparked during a visit to Florida in 1953. For the next 40 years, they traveled the world in pursuit of the finest specimens, and eventually collected and cataloged nearly 10,000 shells from places like Aus-tralia, the Philippines, Japan, Africa and even Antarctica. The entire collection was donated to Sandoway in 2002 by the couples niece, and approximately 3,000 shells are on display. The Beckers journeyed to the far corners of the globe to find many of their jewels of the sea, but there are a number of exceptional places for shell hunting in the area, such as Coral Cove Park on Jupiter Island, where more than 200 specimens reportedly have been found, including the prized paper nautilus and purple sea snail. For your shelling expedition to yield the best results, its important to remember that its not just where you go, but when,Ž said research scientist and shell expert Blair Witherington, a native Floridian. The best time to look for shells is at low tide, and after a storm,Ž he said. One of the best places to look for smaller shells is in the wrack line, where marine debris, including kelp, sea grass and driftwood, gets washed up on the beach by high tides. Beaches that are mechani-cally raked are poor places to find sea-shells, because everything is either bur-ied under or hauled off. Inlets, especially on the Atlantic Coast, are good places for shelling, and anywhere there is a reef right offshore. The Palm Beach Inlet and nearby Pea-nut Island can hold treasures like the Florida fighting conch, the alphabet cone or the Atlantic deer cowrie (one of the largest cowries in the world), which is often found in the summer after tropical storms and hurricanes. John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach also should be at the top of the list, said Dr. Witherington. Its by far my favorite place to look for shells in Palm Beach County,Ž he said. Not because you find the most shells or the rarest shells, but because its an absolutely lovely place to visit.Ž In Martin County, on Jupiter Island, is Blowing Rocks Preserve. In Boca Raton, there are the beaches at Red Reef Park and Spanish River Park. If you want to travel farther south, head to Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park (formerly known as John U. Lloyd Beach State Park) in Hollywood, off A1A, or Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park on Key Biscayne near Miami. Although the collection of most empty seashells is permitted across the state, anyone who plans on taking living shells from the shoreline or water for personal use needs a permit from Floridas Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. You dont want to collect any live animal,Ž cautioned Jeanne L. Murphy, a wildlife biologist who teaches the Flori-da Master Naturalist Program, developed by the University of Florida. Its just not sustainable.Ž Ms. Murphy enjoys learning about the animals that inhabit the seashells, and their life cycles. I find it remarkable that theyre able to make these protection coatings that are so unique from one another,Ž she said. Her advice for shell collectors is to notice everything, be inquisitive and learn about one new shell each outing, rather than trying to learn everything at once. Very soon you get to know a lot of them, she said. Make sure you have a positive impact when youre out there,Ž she added. If you choose to pick up a couple of empty shells, you can also help out nature by taking some litter off the beach while youre at it. And make sure you share your enthusiasm with others.Ž Q SHELLSFrom page 1 What the shell>> More information about shell collecting can be found in the following guides: >> “Florida’s Seashells, A Beachcomber’s Guide,” Blair and Dawn Witherington, $9.95. >> “Shells of Florida: Atlantic Ocean & The Florida Keys, A Beachcomber’s Guide to Coastal Areas,” Jeanne L.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY larry ON THE LINKS‘Pro’s pro’ tees off for a final time Take your hat off when you enter the clubhouseƒ put on a jacket for lunch in the grillroomƒ and maintain a strong left hand grip on your club. These were Bob Watson s words to live by. He was called a pros pro,Ž a member of the PGA of America for more than 65 years, and along the way he set a record of sorts by winning tour-naments in eight consecutive decades. Parenthetically, Sam Snead and Gary Player shared the record at the time with wins in six straight decades. A native of Wichita Falls, Texas, and a resident of Jupiter for nearly 20 years after spending several winters in the area, Mr. Watson died July 17, a week after his 94th birthday. He had been under the home care of the hospice unit at Palm Beach Gardens Memorial Hos-pital for a couple of weeks. Upon retiring following 40 years as the head professional at five clubs in Westchester County, N.Y., Mr. Watson was able to continue his love of teaching golf at Jonathans Landing Golf Club in Jupiter thanks to an invitation from Fred Harkness, a for-mer assistant in New York and the first head professional at JL in the 1980s. Take everything out of my life except for my time and friends at Jonathans Landing,Ž Mr. Watson said on several occasions, and I would still have had a full life.Ž Mr. Watson was called to New York by Jackie Burke to be his top assistant at Metropolis Country Club in White Plains. Burke, who later joined with Jimmy Demaret to develop the Cham-pions Club in Houston, was hired as the head professional but, as the story goes, he then told the folks at Metropo-lis he would need this week off for the Masters, that week for the U.S. Open, another for the PGA Championship and on and on. The Metropolis members reminded Burke he had been hired to be the head professional, not traveling all over playing in tournaments. Burke apparently didnt see it that way so the members turned to Mr. Watson and the rest is history. His job at Metropolis was followed by similar positions at Ardsley, Fairview, Wykagyl, and the last 15 of his 40 years at Westchester. His informal record of winning in eight decades in a row began with the Wichita Falls city junior championship in 1939 and ended in 2000 when he won his age group at the South Florida Senior Open at Ibis Country Club in West Palm Beach. Along the way he captured dozens of Met PGA Section events, two Southwest Conference titles for the legendary University of Texas coach Harvey Penick, in 1948 and 1949, and the Panama Open and the Colom-bian National Open. In the latter, he both amazed and pleased tournament officials and spectators by making his acceptance remarks in Spanish. Bob Watsons son, Craig, also a longtime PGA professional, got his dad involved with the First Tee of the Palm Beaches at Dyer Park and with the mens and womens golf teams at Palm Beach Atlantic University. Craig coaches both teams at PBAU and helped establish the local First Tee program. A training center primarily for PBAU golfers is being planned on the First Tee grounds and will be named to honor the elder Watson. Memorial contributions may be made in Bob Watsons name to or Q WATSON Dont read the car magazines if the Lincoln MKZ looks appealing to you. It doesnt have the moves of a German sports sedan or the technology of a Japanese luxury machine. That makes it hard to be the darling of enthusiast publications, but this refreshed Lincoln has a level of practicality that can be easy to embrace. The MKZ was given a new face for the 2017 model year to reflect the new flagship Continental. This turned the youthful streamlined front end into a mature chiseled look. And a more estab-lished look is exactly what a car like this should have because its pitched to a more established demographic. But what hasnt changed in this car is an efficient design. The c-pillar (the post behind the rear doors) is thick and has a gentle slope. Most of this is over the rear storage, which helps disguise its large size. The result is a small, sporty rear deck that opens up to reveal a cavernous trunk. And there is genuine appeal in a car that can carry the golf clubs and all the luggage without look-ing like a land barge. Inside, the MKZ has all the current Lincoln hallmark items like an attrac-tive leather-wrapped steering wheel and the push-button gear selector next to the infotainment screen. The standard leather seating power adjusts for driver and passenger, and theres plenty of room in back so that all the passengers can be long-haul comfy, too. What the MKZ does not have is technology overload. Cars like Mer-cedes gives the choice of degree angle when the trunk opens. Lexus has a PlayStation-like controller for all of its infotainment. Lincoln has none of that. There are still all of the essential luxury options from parking sensors to seat coolers, but most of these have indi-vidual b uttons. There is no joystick-style controller for all the interior options, or trivial features that require owners to get five menus deep on the infotainment screen. The MKS doesnt feel lacking, but even with the pricey Technology Package ($2,395) or Luxury Package ($4,400) options, no one will mistake this car for the cutting edge. This kind of straightforward approach has an appeal, especially to senior citi-zens. Its not the demographic that car companies typically admit to wooing, but its foolish to ignore a huge portion of the population. This is especially true at a company like Lincoln that needs customers who have had a few more years to build wealth. So lets just consider the MKZ a quiet acknowledge-ment that there is a sizable market for lower tech but plenty of coddling. The base engine is a 240 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. It provides the right kind of power to keep this luxury sedan feeling smooth and always having passing power in reserve. Plus, this does not require premium fuel, which many of the luxury vehicles do „ thats a genuine savings that own-ers feel with every fill-up. The ride is soft but not bouncy. There is a sharpness to the steering, which is likely attributable to the optional 19-inch wheels with Michelin low profile tires. The optional all-wheel drive of our tester also helped with its surefootedness.But all this comes at a price. The base MKZ starts at $36,095 „ and thats for either the standard 2.0-liter turbo or hybrid model. But adding options can quickly increase the total. Our test car was loaded at around $53K, but it hadnt even reached the highest Black Label trim or the 400 hp twin-turbo V6 option ($2,750). Because this cuts a wide pricing path, the most satisfied consumers will be the ones who configure their cars wisely. The trick is to get more than a gussied-up Ford, but pay less than a tech-heavy import luxury brand. This is a meaty part of the market, and the MKZ occupies plenty of it.This is the premium sedan that wont set hearts afire with its exhaust note, but its a solid, stable and roomy luxury machine. That makes for a value thats more readily appreciated by people who pay real money, rather than the enthusi-ast who borrowed it for a week to write this column.

Got Download?The iPad App BY JAN NORRISjnorris@” A decade ago, Briana Beaty decid-ed Palm Beach was worthy of a restaurant month similar to those she had seen in other, bigger cities. Select restaurants would join a cooperative marketing campaign, and offer discounted prix fixe meals, typically three courses, representing their menus. The goal: to gain new diners or woo favorite locals who stuck out South Floridas dead society scene and Sep-tember weather.The seasonal drop in Septembers hospitality income, more acute in South Flor-ida with snowbirds still away and uncoop-erative, unpredictable weather for tourists to navigate, made it the ideal month.But the plan took persuading an industry already hit by a spate of hurricanes and a bear market to look at spending on marketing. It seemed counterintuitive, especially in the dead of summer. Our first year I was begging them to participate,Ž Ms. Beaty said. No one was doing anything like it down here, and I had a hard time selling them on the concept. They didnt understand it.Ž After much legwork and pleading, she managed to enlist 17 restaurants in Flavor Palm Beachs first year. BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 A14 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM A decade of Flavor Palm Beach September dining promotion turns 10SEE FLAVOR, A15 X COURTESY PHOTOLa Masseria in Palm Beach Gardens will participate in Flavor Palm Beach.


National chains such as Ruth s Chris and Mortons were the first to be involved, she said. They had done it in other markets so they knew what it was. It was a learning curve for sure.Ž But the early comers were rewarded. In 2007, the newest restaurant in town was III Forks in Palm Beach Gardens Midtown, and they joined immediately; the promotion and marketing offered by Ms. Beaty would jump-start the steak-houses efforts to gain an audience. Theyre still with them 10 years later, and praise the partnership. According to Tommy Nevill, managing partner at III Forks, the restaurant records triple the diners in September over the rest of the summer months and easily pays for the $950 cost of marketing and promotions. Mr. Nevill pointed to the residual as well: The exposure to new diners and their guests profits III Forks year round. Many sell out during the month; Flavor seats are limited, especially on week-ends. Reservations are strongly suggest-ed, Ms. Beaty said, for that reason. Savvy diners skirt the problem and go at lunch. The restaurants do accept walk-ins, but as Flavor has become more well known, we really do recommend making reservations. You can do it through our website, or through the restaurant.Ž Open Table handles reservations on, and its through them that the Palm Beach County Food Bank gets a donation each time someone books a table for a Flavor meal. She admits it has been tougher to sell smaller, locally owned eateries on the benefits of collective marketing for a month. But Ms. Beaty explained that not only do new diners and tourists take advan-tage of the Flavor deals, but restaurant loyalists who use the program to intro-duce their neighbors and friends to their favorite tables. Its an excuse to get together and be with friends,Ž she said. The program has grown sl owly, but steadily and involves restaurants throughout the county. This year, 50 have signed on to offer deals for lunch and/or dinner, and now, theyre calling Ms. Beaty to be involved. She points to the tourism it boosts, as well. A travel golf group used to hold their meet-ups in July to August to get the best hotel rates. Theyve moved both groups to September to take advantage of Flavor, and every night, they put them in differ-ent groups and book tables for them at different restaurants.ŽRestaurants originally reluctant to participate have finally caught on. This year, there was less reaching out and more of them calling early on to be included,Ž she said. Registration opens in January. This year, she was busy enough to hire Kelly Ring, who assists with event planning and marketing. Shes life-changing. She keeps me on task and organized.Ž Ms. Beaty is excited about new restaurants both in the area and to the cam-paign, including The Parisian in Jupiter, Barcello in North Palm Beach, Costa in Palm Beach, and the Raindancer, a long-time steakhouse in West Palm Beach. I remember eating there with my grandparents,Ž she said. Im really excit-ed to finally have them in the program.Ž Steakhouses are favorites with the Flavor diners, and at a price between $30 and $45 for a three-course dinner (tax, tip and alcohol not included), they are among the first to sell out. But menus for every palate are included in the mix. Cuisines vary widely. Newcomer Costa in the Esplanade Palm Beach offers a Mediterranean menu, with choices such as kefte, hummus with naan, or roasted artichokes as starters, and chicken souvlaki or roasted branzino as a main. The new Italian, La Masseria in Palm Beach Gardens, has a salad, soup or homemade stuffed mozzarella to choose as a first course on its $40 dinner menu. Gnocchi Sorrentina, bocconcini di pollo al vin cotto „ a chicken mushroom dish in red wine sauce, or branzino fillet in a light broth are mains. The chefs moth-ers cheesecake is on the dessert list. At The Parisian, choose the soup djour, a French onion soup, or salad to start, then beef bourguignon, sauted snapper with vanilla sabayon sauce, or chicken fricassee with a brand-mush-room sauce. Apple cake or crme cara-mel are finishers. Try duck meatballs at Barcello, or a romaine wedge salad to start. For a main, choose from a pan roasted cobia, the cast iron chicken with farro, lin-guine with jumbo lump crab, arugula and cherry tomatoes; or the Barcello burger „ a signature item made with smoked Gouda, thick bacon slides, and caramelized onions. The big finish here is a chocolate chip cookie dough eggroll. Check out old favorites like Coola Fish Bar in Palm Beach Gardens, where mussels marinara or a smoked salmon cake with Key lime aioli are starters. Get yellowtail almondine, or a grilled rain-bow trout with macadmia nut pesto, or a coconut crusted hogfish (with upcharge). Star seafood is at PB Catch where chef Aaron Black serves up his housemade fish dip, and the critics favorite, seacute-rie, or a squash and feta salad as starters. Their version of cioppino, or grilled salmon with eggplant, or a pan seared yellowfin tuna in a Mediterranean prepa-ration are the mains; mango sorbet is the dessert. This dinner menu is $45. Flavor Palm Beach also provides entry into an exclusive dining room at Old Port Cove. During Flavor month only, the public can go to dinner at Sandpipers Cove. Here, reservations are required for gate entrance. Boaters also can dock and dine with reservations. Their menu includes starters of calamari frites with shishito peppers, a ponzu shrimp timbale, grilled romaine with chevre, or jumbo sea scallops with lentils. Main dishes include a choice of chicken pomodoro on bucatini, pan-roasted grouper with Brussels sprouts and spiced cauliflower, beef short ribs with fingerling potato and pancetta hash; or a coffee-rubbed pork porterhouse with grilled asparagus and ginger carrot puree. Desserts include dark chocolate gelato, elderflower panna cotta or a wild berry-apple cobbler. Wines can be paired with any Flavor meal; prices are additional and vary at each restaurant. More casual offerings are available, including Salute Market in Palm Beach Gardens where three of their extensive list of small plates makes up the $30 din-ner. Want scenery? Hob nob in Palm Beach at The Breakers in its Italian restaurant, or on a golf course on the beach at Al Fresco on the greens. Go Asian at Echo, also in Palm Beach, where their famous spicy dragon roll is a starter. Imoto is a hip Asian connecting to the wildly popular buccan, Chef Clay Conleys spot. Nitrogen in Jupiter also offers playful Asian dishes, including a sashimi pizza,Ž and fish and chipsŽ roll, or a volcano roll off its Flavor menu. Flavor Palm Beach runs through Sept. 30. Theoretically, a diner could try a different Flavor restaurant every day of the month. But to her knowledge, Ms. Beaty said, no one has done it except me.Ž Q FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A15 FLAVORFrom page 14 Flavor restaurants>> For the complete list of the participating restaurants through the county, browse www.

COMING SOON MONEY & INVESTINGHigh productivity, low energy prices contribute to stalled inflation Would you rather pay more for something or less? I think the vast majority would prefer the latter in almost any situation. So it can be confusing when the Federal Reserve, in its last meeting, indicated its worry regarding constant low inflation. Aren t low prices on the goods and services that we buy a good thing? Why would the government want higher prices? Recall that inflation is simply the rise in overall prices. The Federal Reserve, under Janet Yellen, has targeted over-all annual inflation at 2 percent. This means that the Fed would want overall prices to rise 2 percent each year. There are a few reasons that the Fed supports price increases. First, it spurs economic growth. People have an incentive to spend money today if they know that prices will be higher in the future. The second reason the Fed supports some inflation is that it leads to high-er wages. When a companys revenues increase because the goods it sells are priced higher, the firm has more opportunities to increase money paid to employees. Of course, the higher wages are offset by higher prices, but studies have shown that the higher wages pro-duce more spending and higher produc-tivity in excess of the higher prices. And lastly, the Fed desires some inflation because it gives a buffer against a very scary phenomenon, deflation. In a deflationary economy, people hold off purchasing goods and services because they believe prices will be lower in the future. This causes production to decrease which causes lower employ-ment, which causes more deflation and a vicious cycle can easily be created. The Federal Reserve wants to avoid this at all costs. Unfortunately for the Fed, inflation has stayed below its target 2 percent for a number of years despite massive fiscal and monetary stimulus. Economists point to a number of factors that may be causing this trend. First, technology and innovation have dramatically increased productivity and lowered the cost of production for many goods and services. Second, more inexpensive manufacturing costs in Asia and Africa have lowered overall prices and wages. And finally, commodity prices including energy are at low levels, which also have been contributing to low inflation. So because inflation is below 2 percent, the Fed has been very slow to reduce its balance sheet, thereby shrink-ing the money supply, or increase inter-est rates. This has a significant effect on all areas of the economy. The dollar has fallen against most other currencies. Gold prices have been climbing higher. Bond prices remain close to all time high levels. The housing sector has been boosted due to low rates. The stock market has been propped up as well due to low interest rates and supportive monetary policy. And the future of inflation? With low unemployment, higher wages, and a strong economy, econo-mists have been predicting a rise in overall prices but so far that expectation has been unfulfilled. And until we see inflation starting to creep higher, expect a dovish Federal Reserve and low inter-est rates to continue into the foresee-able future. Q eric


A18 WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSHarper McDaniel a welcome new protagonist from a much-admired writerQ When They Come for YouŽ by James W. Hall. Thomas & Mercer, 288 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95.Add James W. Hall to the list of premier mystery/thriller authors who have jumped tracks from a classic series fea-turing a male protagonist to a new series featuring a female character. Having raved over Michael Connell ys Rene Ballard and Randy Wayne Whites Hannah Smith, I am now gushing over Mr. Halls Harper McDaniel. We meet Harper on a pleasant Febru-ary day in her Coco-nut Grove home. Her husband, investigative reporter Ross, is shaving while holding their infant son, Leo. Harper must snap a picture of them. Thats part of her nature as a professional photog-rapher who is the daughter of Deena Roberts, a photographer superstar. A few blocks away, Spider Combs per-forms his electronic surveillance of the home, taking pictures and filming the movements of the gorgeous Harper. He knows a lot about this family „ a family he has been contracted to destroy. Only Harper survives the fire. When local police dont seem to take the case seriously, Harper takes matters into her own hands. Whoever hired Combs and his associates wanted to stop Ross from fin-ishing his expose about the chocolate industry. Harp-er, a martial arts expert, seeks jus-tice and revenge. She needs to fin-ish Ross work. With the help of her adopted finan-cier brother, Nick; her retired mafi-oso grandfather, Sal; and „ much later in the novel „ family friend and movie star Ben Westfield, she prepares herself for the only task that will give her life meaning and purpose. Mr. Halls skill in capturing Harpers emotion-al turmoil, her courage and her ultimate resilience adds great verisimilitude to a character who comes close to being a candidate for feminine (if not feminist) legend. The authors superb rendering of Harpers tradecraft fuels the legend with astonishing combat scenes. Yet we are always aware of Harpers mortal-ity, the preparation and capabilities of her foes and her occasional doubts and fleeting fears. Her mission takes her to the chocolate conglomerates offices in Zurich, where there are adversaries aplenty. People who are directly or indirectly involved in the hideous treatment of enslaved children and the assassina-tions of those desperate enough to rebel and to share information that would put the company at risk. The greatest imme-diate risk is that a straight-laced merger partner might withdraw rather than be tainted by scandal. Readers get to witness the cruelties at the Ivory Coast plantation, clearly representative of similar maltreatment elsewhere in Africa. One device Mr. Hall uses to put us in touch with these horrors is a computer draft of Rosss feature article, including his contacts for the piece. It becomes clear why he had to be silenced. Throughout this fine thriller, setting „ as always in Mr. Halls work „ plays a significant role. Whether the scene is set in one or another Miami area loca-tion; locations in the Ivory Coast, where much of Harpers investigation takes place; or Zurich neighborhoods, where the suspect Albion Corporation has its headquarters along the Paradeplatz, Mr. Hall establishes the sensory, cultural and moral reality of the place. Theres even a touch of Spain. The dynam-ic interaction between characters and place thickens the reality of both. In Zurich, we meet or learn more about the corporate money players and hire-lings: Larissa Bixel (notable because of her problems with eye contact), Helmut Mullen (whose knuckles are defaced by scars), Adrian Naff (a chameleon-like character) and Lester Albion (whose frail appearance belies his strength). Mr. Hall has always provided a superb blend of literary and genre fiction, and the first title in this new series is no exception. The book seems energized by the new challenges he has set for himself in developing this new, highly original and captivating character. About the author James W. Hall is the author of 20 novels, 14 of which feature Thorn, the offthe-grid loner who lives a primi-tive existence in Key Largo. Thorn and his friend Sug-arman, an AfricanAmerican PI, team up to solve exotic crimes involving everything from animal smuggling to piracy to kidnapping to espionage. He has also published two collections of short stories, and his nonfic-tion work includes a collection of personal essays titled Hot Damn!Ž and an exploration of the common ingredients of best-selling fic-tion titled Hit Lit.Ž Early in his career, he published several volumes of poetry. The award-winning author splits his time between South Florida and North Carolina. Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. phil HALL to ns e te pt s s e n k f ; p l i ti

THEN READ... COLLECTORS CORNER How art lessons turned me into an art lover scott SIMMONS Bought: West Palm Beach Antiques Festival, South Florida Fairgrounds, West Palm Beach. Paid: $75 The Skinny: Canadian artist Francis Denton, who painted under the name Frank Denton, captured a lot of movement in this small canvas. Denton lived from 1896-1987 and painted the early and mid-20th century world he knew. Other wor ks Ive seen of his online have a similar lighting and technique. I collect Florida paintings, so Im not sure why I like this painting so much, but something the artist says in the work speaks to me. I love the movement of the trolleys, and you can almost smell the smoke rising from the chimneys. It reminds me that I always was fascinated by trains as a boy, but thats another column. Q West Palm Beach Antiques Festival „ One of the largest shows in the state, noon-5 p.m. Sept. 1, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sept. 2 and 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Sept. 3, South Florida Fairgrounds, West Palm Beach. Tickets: Early buyer VIP three-day pass, noon-5 Sept. 1, $10; general admission, $8; seniors, $7; or 941-697-7475.THE FIND:A small oil painting by Canadian artist Frank Denton I love art. Perhaps there is nothing more satisfying than strolling a museum or a gallery and imagining the story and the message behind the work. Growing up in Fort Myers, we didnt have lots of opportunities to be around art. My grandmother had a nice watercolor and an oil painting or two, but most of the artwork at our house tended to be prints framed by my step-grandfather. But the year I was in sixth grade, Lee Middle School (yes, we called it Lee Mental School) had double sessions, in which school ended around noon. My mother determined that I had a little too much unsuper-vised free time on my hands, so she signed me up for art lessons with Betty Wedeles. It was because of Mrs. Wedeles that I developed a love of art and painting. She took us to local galleries „ I remember going to the new Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at what is now Florida South-Western State College to see the work of the master. But mostly, she spent time with us, working on acrylic and oil paintings and works in pastel, often encouraging us to look beyond the obvious in our compositions. Three or four kids sat at large easels on the big front porch of her house on Edgewood Avenue east of downtown Fort Myers. It was hot out there at times, but a fan kept the breeze moving and she kept our glasses filled with iced tea or lem-onade, often sweetening the afternoon with her poppyseed cake. You could hear chickens clucking from the coop just east of her house. Mrs. Wedeles would work patiently with us one on one until we mastered the brush, a swishŽ with each stroke on the canvas boards wed bought at Woolco. I can still hear her admonish-ing us to fill the brush „ I shouldnt hear brushstrokes,Ž shed say. Wed dip our brushes and continue painting until it was time to go. As for my masterpieces,Ž they wound up filling the walls of my grandparents house „ several years ago, a friend saw one and noted that I obviously was very proud of the painting, at least judging by the size of my signature. That may be true. Modesty prevails at my house „ three small floral paintings bearing my signature hang on a wall in my spare bedroom. The beautiful old Florida home in which Mrs. Wedeles and her family lived was torn down when the district rebuilt the neighboring Edgewood Ele-mentary School. But Mrs. Wedeles remains an accomplished artist, turning out beautiful landscapes that evoke her love of her native Florida. I do not own any of her work, but her paintings inspired me to collect paintings that draw on Florida themes. For that, I am grateful. Im also grateful that she introduced me to the world of art. What a lovely place it is. Q SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYLandscape by Frank Denton dates from the mid-20th century.

The Norton Museum s Art After Dark celebrates its re-opening with the opening of Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropo-cene,Ž its first exhibition of the new sea-son. Technically, the anthropocene exam-ines the Earth from the period that began when human activity became the domi-nant influence on climate and the environ-ment. This exhibition features the photographs of artist Justin Brice Guariglia, who flew with NASA scientists over Greenland in 2015 and 2016 to survey the impact of melting glaciers on sea level rise. These 22 stunning images that range in scale from as small as 2.5 by 3.3 feet to as large as 12 feet by 16 feet will have you marveling at the beauty of this glorious landscape and asking important existential questions about what effect humans are having on our planet. Mr. Guariglia will discuss his work with Tim B. Wride, the Nortons curator of photography, during Art After Dark at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 7. Also planned for Art After Dark from 5-9 p.m.: Live music from 5-6:15 p.m. is by pianist Barbara Gomulka fol-lowed by the Nanami Jazz Quartet, which features vocalist Nanami Morikawa, at 7:30 p.m. The 15-minute Spotlight Talks are held every 15 minutes from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The exhibition is on view through Jan. 7.The Norton Museum of Art is at 1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach. Museum admission is free. 561-832-5196; Two great musicals come to the Kravis Tickets go on sale Sept. 1 for two shows opening at the Kravis Center that celebrate the Kravis on Broadway series 10th anni-versary season. A production of Rodgers & Hammersteins The King and IŽ takes the stage Nov. 7-12 and Finding NeverlandŽ is on tap for Jan. 2-7. The King and IŽ is one of the most beloved musicals „ it wons audience choice awards „ with a score that brought classics like Getting to Know YouŽ and Shall We DanceŽ to the American soundtrack. Finding NeverlandŽ is the outstanding musical version of playwright J.M. Barries bittersweet story about the innocence of children and how a widowed mother and children brought a quiet man out of his shell and inspired one of literatures true masterpieces. The shows are part of Kravis On Broadway and tickets are $28 and up. The Kravis Center is at 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. Call 561-832-7469 or visit Q since its the second annual such event taking over the 500 block of Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach „ even though it celebrates PureHoneys sixth anniversary. The Sept. 2 festival fea-tures more than 20 different bookings by Mr. Rullman on four different stages, and includes national and regional headlin-ers as well as some of the best of South Floridas local acts. Bumblefest in name actually just began last year on our fifth anniversary,Ž Mr. Rullman said. Prior to that, we just had a one-venue party and show.Ž Thats changed in a big way over the past two years. The 2016 Bumblefest headliner was Penn sylv ania act the Stargazer Lillies, who, along with nearly two dozen area performers, drew what Mr. Rullman estimated at more than 1,000 attendees. This years locals include John Ralstons Shadows Band (led by the namesake vocalist and guitarist who has multiple releases on the Los Angeles-based Vagrant Records label) and Lindsey Mills & the Lazy Lovers (led by the young vocalist and guitarist who also moon-lights as the bassist/vocalist for interna-tional, West Palm Beach-spawned rock act Surfer Blood). Im excited to continue to be a part of what Steev is doing with everything, including Bumblefest,Ž says Mr. Ralston, whos based in Lake Worth. Im just honored, really, to continue to be asked to play these things. Steev has created this culture where you dont have to fit into any certain mold to be a part of it. Its not a scene, or a genre, its more like an atmosphere. If youre doing something interesting, cool, Steev is probably into it, and into helping you in some way. Hes very generous with his time and efforts, and clearly loves the arts enough that he continues to have the energy to explore whats out here in this weird part of the world.Ž This years headliner is Austin, Texasbased psych-rock quintet Holy Wave, and Mr. Rullman also has booked what he terms a sub-headlinerŽ in St. Petersburg-based swamp-rock trio Pleasures. Weve been dying to make it over to Steev and PureHoneys neck of the woods since we began Pleasures a couple years ago,Ž said vocalist/guitarist Katherine Kelly. This will be our first time doing an event with them, and were super stoked to play at Voltaire, the new spot, with so many awesome other acts.Ž A Boynton Beach native and Lake Clarke Shores resident, Mr. Rullmans 6-year-old publication is one of the latest impressive accomplishments in a 25-year area career thats included being a lead vocalist in several bands, a music pro-moter, and being involved with publica-tions from The Palm Beach Post to Closer magazine and PureHoney. With its full-color graphics and foldout format, including midsection post-ers, PureHoney has succeeded while many other modern print publications have failed. Also featuring a strong online presence, the zines monthly band and club listings, plus Soundcloud playlist of local and touring artists, have resulted in a print distribution between 8,000 and 10,000. Other participating Bumblefest venues include Respectable Street, in business since the 1980s and one of the longest-lasting alternative music nightspots in the Southeastern United States, and the com-paratively new Subculture, across Clema-tis Street slightly to the east. Voltaire, which opened last month, also is owned by Rodney Mayo, whose web of influence includes strands through numerous nightclubs and restaurants across South Florida. Mr. Mayo has worked with Mr. Rullman since 1998, and Voltaire is their latest joint venture. And, it appears, the challenge that finally tired the otherwise tireless Mr. Rullman. Between getting the next issue out, opening the new venue, and planning the fest,Ž he said in mid-August, this might be the most ridiculous month of my life.Ž The remaining Bumblefest artists, spread along both sides of Clematis Streets 500 block, will include Peyote Coyote, the Water Colors, Dead and Lov-ing It, Nervous Monks, Other Body, Jel-lyfish Brothers, Backstage Escort, King Complex, Turtle Grenade, JaiaLai, Deaf Poets, Heavy Drag, Wilkes Oswald, Pock-et of Lollipops, Keith Welsh Music, Grey & Orange, and Brother Sundance. Q Heavy PerspectivesŽ „ from Metallica to Modern art, a conversation with musician and artist Jason Newsted „ Monday, Jan. 8. Bass guitarist Jason Newsted performed with the heavy metal band Metallica for five years, and when the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Interviewed by Leslie Streeter of The Palm Beach Post, Mr. Newsted will touch on his work with Ozzy Osbourne and Voivod, and his crazy and colorful art.Ž Behind the Embassy DoorŽ „ A conversation with Edward Elson „ Feb. 5. Edward Elson was the U.S. Ambas-sador to Denmark from 1993-98. In 2001, an article in the Palm Beach Daily News declared, Since he served for six years as the U.S. ambas-sador to Denmark and helped cre-ate National Public Radio two decades earlier, its hardly a surprise that Edward Elson is a rich source of wild and woolly political tales.Ž He will be interviewed by Dr. David Breneman, president and CEO of The Society of the Four Arts. Shining Bright: The Eternal Allure of SilverŽ „ A conversation with Michael James, owner and found-er of The Silver Fund „ March 5 „ Interviewed by Daphne Nikolopoulos of Palm Beach Illustrated, Mr. James will discuss The Silver Fund, which has helped build multiple large col-lections and exhibits at exclusive art and antique fairs in New York, Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Dallas, Chicago and San Francisco, London, Germany, Switzer-land, France and Italy. Let Me Entertain YouŽ „ A conversation with Daniel Biaggi of the Palm Beach Opera and Beth Clark of the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches „ April 2. The Culture & Cocktails season closes with its musical finale, moderated by Sharon McDaniel of the Kravis Center, and featuring both con-versations with cultural leaders and live performances by extraordinary singers. Admission to each Culture & Cock-tails event is $65 in advance and $85 at the door. It is free for members of the Cul-tural Council ($250 level and above).

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY jan FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINERestaurateurs set about reviving an ’80s legend Big news in restaurants, in a Back to the FutureŽ way. Flashback, Palm Beach County, circa late 1980s: The so-called California cui-sine, chef-driven, was raging out West, and sl owly sliding across the nation. Enter two young restaurateurs who had a vision to bring the modern Ameri-can style with fresh ingredients to South Florida. Burt Rapoport and Dennis Max joined up to create Prezzo „ a new concept that would bring a fresh take on Italian dining to South Florida. We were the first restaurant in South Florida to have a wood-burning oven,Ž Mr. Rapoport recalls. The building department didn t know what to do with it.Ž Another pizza maker in Hollywood had built his own, but this would be the first commercial one built in from the ground up. Angelo Elia of Casa dAngelo fame, was the first chef. His food was so authentic, Italian,Ž Mr. Rapoport said. It was a great restau-rant, and a great concept. Like no other restaurant here.Ž Wood-fired pizzas, wood grilled meats and local fish, fresh breads, and pastas with heritage sauces true Italians would recognize. The restaurant was an almost instant success. Diners flocked to the Boca Raton spot and made it a must-dine eatery on a list among the savvy eaters turning to fresh AmericanŽ and authentic ethnic cuisines. The Burt and MaxŽ team were off to a galloping start, and over the years, their restaurant partnerships numbered in the 20s. Two more Prezzos, along with sports bars, Maxs Grills and currently Burt & Maxs in West Delray came from the duo. But the rapid growth spread over several cities and as far north as Orlando became too much, and in 1999, they split, selling off most of their partnered restaurants. The Prezzo group was sold for a lot of cash to a tech CEO,Ž Mr. Rapoport said. The tycoon had visions to take a chain of Prezzos nationwide. It never happened; the tech bubble burst, the tech giant fell and the restaurant mini-chain folded. It was a blow to diners who loved the food and casual, modern atmosphere. But Mr. Rapoport never forgot it. Fast forward: In late 2016, he opened another of his big dreams, a modern deli. Set in western Boca Raton, he expected Rappys to be a hit. Instead, it flopped, never reaching the audience he intend-ed. What the people wanted was a modern deli with high-quality food, but old-school prices. But the rent and build-out demanded a higher check.Ž It never gelled, and he sold it within four months. All the while, he had been thinking of Prezzo. Now might be an opportune time. Customers were already asking about reviving it. Once news of the delis closing hit, rumors of a Prezzo comeback swirled. Mr. Rapoport said investors got wind of it, and immediately showed up to back its opening in the former Rappys. Then, he says, part of a dream team appeared.  Mark Militello called and said he read about Prezzo coming back, and told me hed like to be a part of it. Having Mark on board was like having a god offer,Ž Mr. Rapoport said. He totally gets the concept.Ž The chef, a James Beard Award winner, and the restaurateur have run across each other a few times in 20 years,Ž Mr. Militello said. Hes done some consulting with the restaurateur. The two are bridged with Mr. Rapoports former partner, Dennis Max. Mr. Militello helped put a few of Mr. Maxs restaurants in the limelight, eventually taking over one of his first California con-cepts, Maxs Place in Miami. It became Marks Place, which he expanded with four others, including those in CityPlace and Boca Raton. He closed the last one in 2008, and began consulting. His latest restaurant is Josies in Boynton Beach, where hes revived the Italian menu with a modern take. Hell write the new menu at Prezzo. It will be Prezzo reinvented for 2017,Ž he said. I think all of us want the same thing: for the restaurant to be a suc-cess.Ž Q MAX RAPOPORT MILITELLO LATEST FILMS‘The Only Living Boy in New York’ + Is it worth $10? No The farthest distance in the world is between how it is and how you thought it was going to be,Ž Cynthia Nixons Judith says in the middle of The Only Living Boy in New YorkŽ „ and darn if thats not true about the movie itself. It has a great cast. A wonderful director in Marc Webb (500 Days of Sum-merŽ). A story ripe with possibilities. And yet the movie is an off-putting, depressing tale about malcontents who hate what New York City has become but dont do anything to make it better. Mr. Webb also shows so little regard for mass appeal that its hard to believe he made the first two The Amazing Spider-ManŽ movies. The limited target demo here „ New York social elites and those aspiring to join them „ will likely (ironically) find the films pretentiousness a tad off-putting, making it hard to say what audience will con-nect with this mis-begotten narrative. Jeff Bridges unmistakable voice mumbles over the open-ing credits about how things were better back in the day. Even the main character, the 20-something Thomas (a dull Callum Turner), believes New York has lost its soul.Ž What exactly hes bas-ing this assessment on is unclear, but what is clear is that he doesnt have the life experience to say this. He is a moper „ a well-off young adult who hates his publishing mogul father (Pierce Brosnan), worries about his depressed art dealer mother (Nixon), and doesnt understand why hes been friend-zoned by his crush Mimi (Kiersey Clemons). Thomas spends so much time feeling lost and sorry for himself that you become convinced that all his dreams could come true and hed still find life hollow and unfulfilling. Dude, get over yourself. One night as Thomas tries to get out of Mimis friend zone he spots his father with the beautiful Johanna (Kate Beckin-sale) and is shocked to discover theyre having an affair. Unsure of what to do, he follows (stalks) Johanna around the city. Then he has an affair with her himself. If you wonder what exactly Johanna is thinking, you will not be alone. All the while Thomas has befriended his new neighbor, W.F. (Mr. Bridges), whos a bit nosy but gives sage advice. One must wonder what the great Mr. Bridges was thinking working opposite the cardboard box that is Mr. Turner, who doesnt have much screen presence and whose character is a wet blanket. Without a compelling lead, everything in the movie struggles. At 88 minutes, The Only Living Boy in New YorkŽ is too short for the type of slow-burn drama it attempts to pull off. The idea of generational differences in New York City is interesting, but Allan Loebs script doesnt do much with it until the conclusion, and by then its too late. The result is a movie that thinks its much smarter than it really is. And is there anything worse than a pretentious fool? Q f h S d a l dan FILM CAPSULESThe Trip To Spain ++ 1/2 (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) Friends and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play versions of them-selves as they sample fine dining and tour-ist attractions throughout Spain. Most of it is good conversation thats reasonably consistently funny, though it does get a bit too chatty for its own good at times. Not Rated: Adult themes. Wind River ++ 1/2 (Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille) In a frigid and remote Wyoming territory, a hunter/tracker (Mr. Renner) and inexperienced F.B.I. agent (Ms. Olsen) search for the murderer of a teenage girl (Ms. Asbille). The frostiness of the snow-covered terrain provides a nice texture to the compelling story; too bad the last act is a bit weak. Rated R. Logan Lucky +++ (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig) The Logan siblings (Mr. Tatum, Mr. Driver, Riley Keough) and career criminal Joe Bang (Mr. Craig) plan to rob the Char-lotte Motor Speedway during the biggest race of the year. Its a fine return to form for director Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11Ž) and is full of cameos to keep you smiling. Rated PG-13.The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature + (Voices of Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Jackie Chan) When a greedy mayor (Bobby Moynihan) wants to build an amusement park, squirrels Surly (Mr. Arnett) and Andie (Ms. Heigl) and the rest of the ani-mals try to stop the destruction of their home. Its not funny, and its actually insult-ing to the human race. Rated PG. Kidnap ++ (Halle Berry, Sage Correa, Chris McGinn) A desperate mother (Ms. Berry) will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son (Mr. Correa). The story is thin and the action is decent; too bad for Halle Berry that mediocrity is not good enough. Rated R.Dunkirk +++ 1/2 (Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh) The brave actions of individuals on land, at sea and in the air during the WWII Battle of Dunkirk are chronicled in director Christopher Nolans (InceptionŽ) latest. Its superb filmmaking per usual for Mr. Nolan: Briskly edited, great of use of sound and bold images that immerse you in the action. Rated PG-13. Q >> Simon & Garfunkel’s song “The Only Living Boy in New York” — released in 1970 on the “Bridge Over Troubled Water” album — is featured in the lm.


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11The Dish: Fried Mozzar ella The Place: Temple Orange Mediterranean Bistro, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, 100 N. Ocean Blvd., Manalapan; 561-533-6000 or The Price: $12 The Details: Just about every restaurant has some permutation or another of mozzarella sticks. Whats not to love? Theyre gooey and crispy and fatty, all at the same time. But whoever thought they could be creamy? Thats the case with this appetizer of fried mozzarella, recently introduced by David Viviano, the new chef at Temple Orange. It was made from some of the smoothest and mildest of cheeses Ive tasted. The finish was clean „ never mind that it had been lightly breaded and fried. The marinara was sweet but piquant, and the peperonata served as a garnish was both sweet and savory. Q „ Sc ott Simmons THE DISH: Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEDo men and women approach wine in different ways? One of the topics that gets brought up continually in the wine world is how men and women approach, discuss and experience wine. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of books and articles ruminat-ing on this very topic. In todays wine trade, women who anchor winemaking families devote them-selves to not only making and marketing wine, but to forming groups for discuss-ing moderate wine consumptionŽ and its benefits in a healthy lifestyle.Ž They call themselves Women For WineSense,Ž and work toward getting balanced con-sumer information placed on wine labels. Many of the members names appear on those very bottles: Margaret Duckhorn, Rosemary Cakebread, Annette Shafer, Susan Sokol-Blosser, Margrit Mondavi, and many more. Some women make wine, some sell it. While the traditional image of a res-taurant sommelier is almost exclusively masculine, the number of female somms has gone through the roof. Restaurant groups like Danny Meyers Union Square Hospitality Group have several women in positions that are critical both for guest relations and sales. And more and more women are making wine decisions ƒ including at the restaurant table. Kristene Hansen noted in her blog that women who dine out may feel more comfortable and less intimi-dated discussing wine with a female som-melier. Hansen discovered another inter-esting point: men often order a pricier wine from a woman than they would from a man. If theyre trying to impress one woman, they want to impress them all. In the introduction to her annual wine guide for women, French critic Isabel Fort says, women are more sensual, their breathing is different ƒ they per-ceive aromas more subjectively. Wine is more than just a simple beverage, it is a combination of aromas that open in the mouth, offering an infinite number of sensations.Ž Women, she says have more olfactory sensitivity to perfumes, to the aromas of foods, to the scents of the home. Women also approach the wine world with different attitudes and goals. This is clear in the hundreds of womens wine clubs, tasting groups, business and social networks that have appeared through social media. The About Us pages on these sites generally promote the social and com-fort aspects of wine consumption, the meeting new people, networking, sharing, exchanging. In fact, female members of the international wine club Direct Cellars spontaneously formed their own sub-group within the organization and called themselves The Women of DC.Ž They have a separate Facebook page, and inter-act with each other apart from the clubs many thousands of members. Popular media has taken notice. There are more television series than ever that feature wine-loving women in leading roles, such as The Good Wife,Ž and Con-nie Brittons character in Friday Night Lights.Ž Wine is a part of the lives of women such as Skyler White in Break-ing Bad,Ž and Claire Danes character on Homeland.Ž Thats much different than the Cosmos that were so enthusiastically consumed by Carrie Bradshaw and her crew on Sex and the City.Ž So here are some suggestions for your next white tablecloth dining experience. Your sommelier may be a well-educat-ed, well-traveled woman who knows the wine world from top to bottom. Second, servers have learned to not automatically offer the wine list to the man at the table. Theres an excellent chance that a dis-criminating and wine-savvy woman will be making the selection. My tasting panels favorites this week include: Salentin Malbec Reserve Valle de Uco 2014 ($19) „ Smooth and quite approachable for a full-bodied wine. Bright fruit, minerality with notes of plum and dark cherry. WW 88. Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Ros 2016 ($13) „ This wine will go with just about any food you like. Pronounced leather and cedar on the nose, with a firm spine of strawberry and watermelon flavor. Since its 100 percent Cabernet, it tastes just like the big red version, only much lighter „ and pinker. WW 88. Contrade Negroamaro Puglia 2015 ($10) „ The Negroamaro grape is characteristic in Puglia, which is the heel of the Italian boot. Deep ruby color offering a nose of dark flowers and honey. Inter-esting flavors of warm cherry, blueberry, and cocoa. Just a bit on the sweet side. WW 89. Q „ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Another friends go-to dish is the meat-loaf. But we always begin with a cocktail. My favorite? The Rose Colored Glass-es, with Reyka vodka, the slightly astringent aperol and lime. Everything looks better after one of those. For brunch, the Bloody Marys look tasty. „ Scott Simmons 1 HULLABALOO517 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach; 561-833-1033 or www.

But it was the cocktails that won our hearts, with the Dio, a concoction of Maestro Dobel Tequila Diamante, Giffard creme de mure, sage, fresh grapefruit and lime, with the sour of the citrus contrasting nicely with the sweetness of the blackberry-infused crme de mure. 2 LILO’S STREET FOOD & BAR701 Lake Ave., downtown Lake Worth; 561-518-7880 or The $4 margarita (at right) is reason enough to visit Lilos, the Lake Worth outpost of a Del-ray Beach spot. The drink is sweet and sour, all at the same time and tastes freshly made, rather a concoc-tion made from a mix. I also love the street foods here „ small bites priced at under $5 apiece: tacos, wings, oysters and more. Service can be casual here, so dont come if youre in a hurry. Its on island time, but every-one always is friendly and welcoming. Some-times, thats all you need. SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY
