Casa D' Angelo Ristorante -- by Florida Fine Art Blog

]]>For the first restaurant review we do on this blog I thought I would start at the top of the food chain, Casa D’ Angelo in Fort Lauderdale.  The restaurant is Christine and my favorite and we celebrated our second wedding anniversary there last week. Casa D’ Angelo is Italian, Tuscan cooking done with great skill and the freshest of ingredients.

The Owner and Chef, Angelo Elia, is a masterful host making each visit a special event.  The staff at the restaurant is professional and friendly.  Our visits to Casa d’ Angelo have been some of the best dining experiences we have ever had. To tell the truth, with the large selection of nightly specials, I have yet to order from the menu.  And Angelo has the most compelling wine list in South Florida.  My only warning would be that Casa D’ Angelo is expensive, but so worth it.  

Chef Angelo also has restaurants with the same name in Boca Raton and the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.  Not busy enough, the Chef has recently opened another restaurant in Fort Lauderdale simply called D’Angelo Pizza.  A more casual but still upscale setting, D’Angelo’s menu has simple Italian dishes.  A Pizza/Tapas/Wine Bar D’Angelo Pizza has quickly become the “In Spot” for lunch.   

Last week as Christine and I shared our anniversary dinner together I exclaimed, “This is the best I have ever tasted!”  Christine laughed and reminded me that “you say that every time we come”, and I reminded her “and every time it’s true!” GL

Miami Art Collector Sues Artist -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Interesting article about dealing with the upper echelon of the art world.  The sense of entitlement and large egos displayed by both parties in the lawsuit are staggering.  The only problem is it looks like they ran into a tough New York Judge.  From the Article; Annoyed at a New York hearing delayed by Robins and Zwirner's extensive travel schedules, U.S. Judge William H. Pauley III snapped in open court: ``Apparently this litigation is the sport of kings, among a wealthy art patron and a successful gallery owner. "Excuse me," he continued "if I'm not impressed." GL

Space Shuttle Atlantis lands for final time -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Atlantis made its final landing at Cape Canaveral today. The Space Shuttle Atlantis, the last manned space craft built for NASA, began flying way back in 1985. She flew 32 missions, carried a total of 135 Astronauts into space and back, spent 282 days in orbit and traveled a staggering 115,770,929 miles. What a record! Atlantis' last voyage carried the art beads, "Beads of Courage" for kids dealing with cancer, a story I blogged about earlier. (That story can be found here) It is sad to think we are now in the process of retiring the Shuttle fleet without a replacement craft ready to take over. The two remaining Shuttles, Discovery and Endeavor, will make their last flights this year. For my entire life we have been sending men and women into space, now we will have to wait and hope for a new program to begin. There are some plans but no firm commitment. And as we wait and see, other countries like India and China are making their way to the moon. It has been 49 years since Alan Shepard took off from Cape Canaveral and started America's manned voyage into space. Let's hope the voyage continues.  GL

NYC's Whitney to Build New Downtown Museum -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Architect Renzo Piano will be building the new Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. The $680 million dollar project is projected to be completed in 2015. Renzo Piano recently completed the spectacular new wing at the Chicago Art Institute (pictured above).  The Whitney holds one of New York's finest museum collections and the new six-story building will allow them to display more of the collection at once. Two questions still remain, will they be able to raise the money and what will happen to the current museum space uptown. The Whitney will break ground in 2011. GL

Traditional Rome changes course with first modern art museum -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

A new Modern Art Museum in Italy is opening this week. The museum was designed by Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid. Zaha Hadid is a favorite of my wife and I. We saw a wonderful exhibition of her work in 2006 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Zaha is an architect who consistently pushes the boundaries of architecture and urban design. This is, incredibly, the first contemporary art museum in Rome. From the article; The MAXXI's sleek modern exterior manages to reflect elements of the eternal city. Rome isn't just one city, but many built on top of each other spanning the epochs from Etruscan to Roman to medieval and beyond. "The project emerges in its early phase of as many layers resting on each other," Hadid said in 2008. "The idea is to make a layered space or a layered city almost at once, as if learning from history and how the layering worked." GL

Florida Artist's Work Sent Into Space -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Wow, three of my favorite things in one story. Florida Art, NASA and Children's Charities.   Port Charlotte glass artist Terri Fout has been making glass beads for Children's Charities. The beads are given as "beads of courage" to mark special milestones for kids fighting cancer .  NASA has decided to take some of the beads up into space on one of the Space Shuttles last missions so the children know that “Astronauts in space were thinking of them and their journeys.”  What a great cause.

Five paintings worth nearly $613 million stolen in Paris -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Thou shall not steal art! The authorities believe this was the work of one person. There is little chance the paintings could be sold on the open market so the thief must have a private collector already in mind.  Lets hope the paintings have not been damaged and they are recovered quickly.  GL
