La Dolce Vita

This is not the Riviera in Italy, but a look from the Scarpetta Italian restaurant of the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach. It is indeed a nice life scene here, and looking at it, you wouldn't know that there is a recession raging outside in the streets. But have no fear. There is plenty of $ here. Valet parking is about US $25 and a Sunday brunch is about $50 per head not counting tips and tax. I bet you most of the $ flowing through here is from off shore when things cost less and less here when compared to other international currencies. The beautiful palms are overlooking the blue Atlantic ocean that lies beyond Collins Avenue on this glitzy island.
