Upscale Dining in South Beach: Winter Haven Hotel Miami Beach

Ocean Drive, a historic and vibrant street on South Beach, is one that truly comes alive during the day with revelers enjoying some fun in the sun. Yet while sunshine is a welcome asset to our city, South Beach has so much more to offer, with many new changes coming into the area and city. Within this street lies the Winter Haven Hotel Miami Beach, a property that is a part of the Autograph Collection of hotels, it’s a gorgeous property and one that brings comfort, luxury, and a significantly classy vibe to Ocean Drive.

For those who wish to enjoy the hotel’s amenities even more, we recommend a stop at the hotel’s Italian restaurant, Il Bolognese, with a menu full of comfort dishes and appetizers, as well as drinks. We had the chance to dig into the restaurant’s bruschetta and classic meatballs as appetizers. We were impressed with the cocktails, as we paired up our food with the restaurant’s classic mojito and tried out the mango mojito and sangria. Make sure to take a moment and try the restaurant’s food, and the drinks are the perfect classics that are perfectly refreshing for the beachy area. We recommend sitting outdoors on a nice day, a spot that’s perfect for people-watching and catching the ocean breeze.

Not only does the hotel offer beautifully renovated rooms with plenty of space to rest and relax for those who decide on treating themselves for a stay, but its location on the quiet corner of 1400 Ocean Drive, makes it the perfect Oasis. An Oasis that is the perfect quiet escape from the hustle and bustle right outside.

The hotel boasts a long history, with the property being a part of the historic district since 1939. Architect Albert Anis created the hotel with the Art Deco style in mind, which makes it a unique staple of the area that still shines today.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
