Haute Living Magazine’s swanky annual Haute 100 Dinner served as the Grand Unveiling of Cipriani Downtown Miami. The dinner celebrates members inclusion on Haute Living’s list of the 100 most powerful and philanthropic people in Miami published in their annual Haute 100 issue, which came out earlier this week. Guests on “the list” arrive via chauffeured BMW 760′s, and a lucky few departed from Sunset Harbour Marina on a Ferrretti Riva 75′ Vernere before pulling up to the adjacent Epic Marina at the Epic Hotel. The power crowd sipped Dom Pérignon and hobnobbed with fellow VIPs to Frank Sinatra tunes which set a retro Rivera vibe at the sparkling new restaurant. Dinner featured plates of Mediterranean fare such as grilled artichokes, beef carpaccio, steak tartare, fresh crab cakes, gnocchi and risotto.
Attendees included Tracy Mourning, Mike and Alicia Piazza, Michael Capponi, Lea Black, Joanna Krupa and Romain Zago, Michael and Nikki Simkins, Alan and Ruth Zelcer, Eric and Stacy Milon, Daniel de la Vega, Phillip Goldfarb, Phillip Levine, Robert Zarco, Bobby Yampolsky, Keith Menin, Russell Galbut, Brett David, David Martin, James Ferraro, Jason Atkins, Marco Selva, Jay and Laura Parker Manuel Groskopf, Edgardo Defortuna of Fortune International, Rick de la Croix, of Hublot and Ken Gorin, President and CEO of the Collection. While the Miami Heat was out of town working on winning the NBA finals, their significant others came out in full force with Adrienne Bosh, Jenine Howard and Savanna Brinson, LeBron James fiancee showing up for big night. The evening’s sponsors were Jade Signature, Dom Pérignon, Hublot, BMW and Ferretti Yachts.
