Beverly Hills meets the South Florida sun at this swank collection of 100 high-end shops, boutiques, and department stores, which include such names as Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Hermès, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tiffany & Co., and Valentino. Many European designers open their first North American signature store at this outdoor, pedestrian-friendly mall, and many American designers open their first boutique outside of New York here. Restaurants and cafés, in tropical
garden settings, overflow with style-conscious diners. People-watching on the terrace of the Japenese restaurant Makoto is the best in town. The ambience is oh-so-Rodeo Drive.
