Miami’s newest fabulous resident, Polina Ross Sariego, shares her Haute Secrets to Miami including where to eat, shop, stay and more!

Where were you born: Saint Petersburg, Russia

How long in Miami: Just moved here 7 months ago.

Neighborhood: South Beach

Occupation: PR/writer/model

Favorite Restaurant: Bazaar by José Andrés

Best Sushi: Katsuya

Best Italian: Casa Tua

Best dessert: I order all of them in Bazaar and I don’t share!

Best place for a romantic date: Versace Mansion… it’s like a little European getaway right on Ocean Drive 

Best Sunday brunch: Leynia at Delano! It literally takes you to another level of what we’re used to thinking of brunch! They have live music, great food and a gentleman rolling cigars right there…the whole experience is wonderful! 

If you have out of town guests, which hotel would you recommend? Delano! It’s the best and the most iconic hotel where your privacy is a priority.

Favorite shopping venue/boutique: Bal Harbour, it’s very quiet with many nice restaurants. Recently, I fell in love with the designer Silvia Tcherassi.

Favorite place to buy jewelry/watches: My husband knows better ;) 

Best Spa: I got spoiled with a great beauty service in Russia and I’m now struggling every time I move to new city to find new people—so for each service, there is a different place. Nails: Delano Spa. Hair: Rossano Feretti at Faena. Sauna and hamam at The Standard Hotel & Spa. 

Favorite Charity Event: We just moved from the Bahamas where I was involved with the Heart Ball Association 

Favorite Cultural Event: Art Basel Miami because the world’s best modern art comes to you.

Best Lunch: Dirt on Bay Road—it’s healthy, fast, and they cook the way I’d cook! Seaspice is one of my favorites on the weekends—to me, the whole beauty of the place is that you can come by boat.

Best Gym/Athletic Facility: I love Spartan Gym at 1 Hotel! Visit The morning boot camp class with Lawrence.

Best Massage: To me, it’s all about the massuse…I don’t really like a relaxing massage, I like it strong with all the benefits for your health. I have the best massage therapist in the world! She has her own technique, and I swear I`m one inch slimmer after one session with her! Check her instagram page @sheilamperez .

Best Limousine/Driving Service: I love driving myself. With good music, it can be meditative for me. 

Describe your city in three words: Iconic, sexy, unique.

All-around favorite spot in Miami: I really like this new upcoming area of Midtown as well as Wynwood and the Design Disctict.

Best Aspect of Miami: I truly admire the uniqueness of Miami. It has a rare combination of a big metropolis with the beautiful beach and relaxed resort lifestyle, which attracts people from all over the the globe to live here. Miami is a melting pot of cultures.
