Wine Spectator’s 2018 Restaurant Awards

Wine lovers everywhere, it’s that time of the year to update your wine destination list! Wine Spectator has released the winners of the 2018 RestaurantAwards, which honors the world’s best restaurants for wine. This year, the Restaurant Awards program honors 3,759 dining destinations from all 50 states in the U.S. and more than 75 countries internationally.

The Restaurant Awards began in 1981, and there are three levels: the Award of Excellence, the Best of Award of Excellence and the Grand Award, with 2,453; 1,215; and 91 winners this year in each respective category. Seven of the Grand Award winners—Ai Fiori in New York City, Barolo Grill in Denver, Le Coureur Des Bois in Beloeil, Quebec, Canada, Madera in Menlo Park, California, Metropolitan Grill in Seattle, Restaurant Mosaic in Pretoria, South Africa and Sistina in New York City—are first timers.

“This year’s class of restaurants is one of the most impressive and innovative ever,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor and Publisher, Wine Spectator. “Their wine lists keep improving, because wine lovers are eager to explore and learn. The goal of our Restaurant Awards is to support restaurant wine programs and bring them to diners’ attention through our outreach through print, digital and social media. Wine Spectator salutes every restaurant honored in the 2018 Restaurant Awards.”

All winners are profiled at Restaurants.WineSpectator.com and in the Restaurant Awards app. The app, available free on the App store, allows iPhone and iPad users to easily find nearby award-winning restaurants, with maps, plus helpful information about cuisine, wine and pricing.

The Award of Excellence recognizes restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers. Best of Award of Excellence recipients offer more extensive selections with significant vintage depth and excellent breadth across multiple regions.

The Grand Award is the program’s highest honor. This elite group comprises the world’s best wine programs, which deliver serious breadth of top producers, outstanding depth in mature vantages, excellent harmony with the menu and superior presentation. Wine Spectator carefully assesses each Grand Award candidate, including rigorous independent, on-site inspections of the wine program, cellar, service, ambiance and cuisine of the restaurant.

The full list of award winners is available in print in Wine Spectator’s August issue, on newsstands July 17.

Paris FW x Haute Couture

During Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture, on Tuesday, July 3,

Maison des Centraliens has hosted three young designers with their Fall- Winter Collections 2018-2019:

 

ABE by Ariane Chaumeil Jewelry  “Miroir”

There is magic and mystery in a mirror : the reflexion of who looks into it is real, but reversed.  Since we gaze at ourselves, all fantasies become possible and brings us back to face each other, and to what the world has to face. As a two-way mirror, you can see without being seen. Step through and find out with this collection, and the part of your soul using your imagination, whether it is dark or whether radiant…

The fall winter collection of the ABE by Ariane Chaumeil house, whose crafting remains done with the blowtorch glass, becomes richer with a new proposition: the metal paste making. Sculpted and cast, the metal paste is modelled, sanded, fired at high temperature, brushed and rubbed with a burnisher and polished several times in order to get pieces of golden and white bronze, and of pure copper, with a shiny, ancient rendering.

 

A couture collection by  designer Armine Ohanyan

A couture collection made in France, entirely handmade, intimately inspired by nature, showing the natural elements in all their forms. Ice, crystallization, rain, wind, dew and roots. Crystallized in these surroundings, the Human Being becomes Nature. The Nature is everlasting, nothing can stop it. It is the true beauty, perfection. For depicting this cycle of evolution, Armine Ohanyan uses the new technologies such as 3D printing or materials crafting, which play an important role in her creation process. Her art investigations never end, like the movement that she shows in its different forms and their ranges of colours and materials. Her creations are futuristic, modern, with a wide beauty touch.

 

Baroqco Jewelry

Designers Imelda and Eduardo aka Baroqco are citizens of the world . Their roots are from Dutch Chinese Indonesian and Portuguese descent, and this diversity is what provides foundation that leads to the inspiration and creation. BaroQco comes from Baroque, an era of change from simplicity to lively and exuberant detail. BaroQco stands alone with its unique grandeur and ability to surprise and to achieve a sense of awe. Imelda and Eduardo started to create jewelry as they were looking for a tiara or crown for their wedding day. At that time there were not a lot of options, so they decided to create their own tiara which lead others to ask whether they could also make necklaces and earrings.

« As we embrace the impressionism, we strive not only for the outer but especially for the inner-beauty. In our creations we want to push boundaries of artistic techniques. And therefore the BaroQco is a book without an End. »

The materials are opal ,gold and Swarovski and all the metalwork are nickel free, the usage of non toxic and – hazardous for plating makes the jewelry more ecofriendly.

NEXT TOWN DOWN RELEASES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “ROCK”

Next Town Down’s latest video leaves everything on the dance floor as the New Edition inspired vocal group showcases both their dance moves and rhythmic R&B vibes. The video which is set inside what looks likes a Hollywood mansion plays on how a video of themselves leads to the thoughts and dreams of them one day making it big.

Although the video shows them working as cleaners, The members of NTD are no stranger to working a few crazy jobs of their own. In fact, the video’s inspiration gives a nod to those jobs they worked (i.e Dominoߣs, Subway, the corn fields, bill collection, and the Atlanta airport) before meeting over social media.

I think it’s safe to say, they wanted to let you know in a fun, smooth way that some dreams are just hard to shake. Or in their case, “ROCK.”

DONNA MISSAL’S NEW SINGLE, “GIRL” OUT NOW

Missal Announces June Shows In Brooklyn And Los Angeles  

Download / Stream “Girl” HERE  

View Official Video HERE  

Donna Missal’s new single, was given its world premiere today by Zane Lowe on Beats 1. Lowe said, “I love the modern production, the feel of it. But it also has like a timeless, latter-day Prince vibe to it.”

Listen/embed the segment at:  

<iframe src=”https://embed.itunes.apple.com/us/embedded-player/idsa.5a04cac0-5f86-11e8-95da-16ced885557c” width=”560″ height=”315″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen scrolling=”no”></iframe>   

AvailableHERE “Girl” touches on a subject that’s rarely discussed in any forum, the emotional damage inflicted when, as Missal sings, “women hate on other women.” The stripped-back yet intricately textured track unfolds with both gentle playfulness and piercing vulnerability.  

“It’s been amazing to see this huge influx of art, music and media by women and for women intended to support and encourage every kind of women to claim our space. I think it’s important to identify what makes us stronger and louder, and we have proven that we can shift the culture around us by coming together to address our common issues and goals,” says Donna Missal. “When we criticize and attack one another, we diminish our voice in the conversation for equality and social change, so I wanted to write something that speaks on that experience. I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t experienced this in some way, and I want to see that change.”

The official video, directed by Justin Bettman, can be viewedHERE.  Bettman  who has earned acclaim for the ongoing art project Set in the Street, which repurposes found materials to create interior sets on city streets  also helmed the video for Missal’s,Driving.”

“Girl,” which was produced by Tim Anderson (Solange, BANKS, Halsey), is the third in a series of two-track singles from Missal. The A-side is a studio version of “Girl” while the B-side is a stripped-down live take. Today, Missal also shared a live performance video of the song.

Missal, who will release her full-length debut on Harvest Records later this year, will open forMax Frostat Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on June 20 and headline The Hi-Hat in Los Angeles on June 23.

Her debut single, “Keep Lying,” premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1, then shot to the top of the Spotify Viral and HypeMachinecharts. Hailed by Milk as an earth-shaking vocalist with unique resonance, she is featured on two tracks from Macklemore’s latest album, Gemini: “Over It” which she co-wrote, and “Glorious.” Missal also featured on Rudimental‘s “No Fear” and co-wroteLeon Bridges, “BetAin’t Worth the Hand.” “Power,” an original song she co-wrote with Baz Luhrmann and recorded for Netflix’s “The Get Down” won a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Original Song.

KAILEE MORGUE’S NEW SINGLE

Kailee Morgue debuts her new single, “Do You Feel This Way” (feat. Whethan)—listen & share here. The track premieres today on Zane Lowe’s World First.

Of the song, Morgue says, “This is one of my favorite songs I’ve made because it is off axis just enough to blur my perspective between haunting and inviting. Teaming up with Whethan brought the perfect blend of hazy lethargy and upbeat skepticism to the track. It captures the unease of that feeling of not knowing how someone truly feels about you, and it still always makes me want to move when I hear it—it’s so fun to perform.”
KAILEE MORGUE
“Do You Feel This Way” (feat. Whethan) follows Morgue’s latest single, “F**k U” and her 2017 breakout track, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success after she posted a live performance of the song on Twitter. “Medusa” became the title track from her debut EP, which was also released last fall and features her hit single, “Discovery.”

Tattooed, multi-color haired and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based gothic pop siren, Kailee Morgue, casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses, such as Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani, as well as bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud.

Between a gig at Jack In The Box in 2016, an 18-year-old Morgue found the beat for her breakout track, “Medusa,” on YouTube and cooked up the single. She first teased the track with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction garnering 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy, minimalistic soundscape, Morgue creates a hypnotic and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics. “Medusa” peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, was hailed as “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, MTV, The Line of Best Fit and Coup de Main and its video premiered on The FADER. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, Morgue inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017. Further music is set for release this summer.
