Favorite Restaurants: Huahuas’s. They put a mix of romaine and kale in their taco salad, which I thought was really interesting. You can be kind of healthy there. I love Joe’s chopped salad and Miami Juice. An Israeli guy owns it, he has really fresh hummus and tabouleh, it was the original Juice & Java, it’s always really fresh.
Favorite Natural Beauty Product: Kahina. Everything is argan oil based. I use the under eye serum and I love it.
Favorite Spa: Canyon Ranch. They have this amazing floating seaweed algae wrap, you’re in this machine, they wrap you and they push a button and it’s almost like you’re in a waterbed or floating in air. You sit there for 25 minutes and you start sweating and you feel great. You feel detoxed. It pulls everything out of you.
Ideal Meal: Mexican. There’s a place in the Sunset Harbor area, it’s an old school traditional Mexican place called Tequiztlan. They have really good simple Mexican. I love the chicken corn tacos, cilantro and onions, almost street style.
Favorite Nail Salon: Bliss Spa
Best-Kept Miami Secret: The whole Sunset Harbor area. If you’re a New Yorker, not everyone knows about it. In Wynwood, the graffiti walls are super cool.
Favorite Juice Bar: jugofresh. It’s great flavors. It’s not just the green juice. He knows how to mix different ingredients and make it taste good.
Favorite Healthy Lunch Spot: Carrot Express. That had been around for many years. He opened in this gas station and everyone started talking about it. All these things are happening. There was definitely a void and a need for it in Miami. People are starting to realize this is what people want. Everybody is a little too scared to go for it. It’s definitely evolved.
Favorite Snack: Pip corn. Roma’s mom always stocks us with it. I like all the Yogi teas. We literally have every single one, I like the Detox especially.
Favorite Shops: Luminiare has great European furniture designers. 4141 in the Design District is also amazing. They’re the exclusive distributor for Moroso, Vitra and Fluo. Part of his showroom is a restaurant and he changes it every couple years.
