Le Bilboquet’s bouillabaisse, a type of French seafood stew, features red snapper, sea bass, shrimp and mussels.

 

Showcasing rich mahogany and Italian stone, the décor at Sant Ambroeus was inspired by the “Gran Caffés” of 1950s Italy.

With its pristine beaches, warm ocean breezes and endless blue skies, South Florida has long attracted those seeking a change from winter weather. Palm Beach, in particular, has held special allure for travelers since the town was founded in 1911.

It’s been three years since Barrett-Jackson was able to hold an event in Palm Beach, and since then, dozens of celebrated eateries have opened or will soon be opening locations in Palm Beach County. They provide the perfect spot to celebrate your bidding success or to simply unwind and enjoy a delectable meal after an exciting day of auction action.

At La Goulue, diners will enjoy traditional French dishes, such as Canard á L’Orange Riz Sauvage, duck breast in an orange sauce with wild rice.

“Palm Beach has the right balance of a classic yet relaxed vibe. People want to live here, and everyone wants to visit. We’re so happy to be part of this community,” says Ed Carter, operating partner of La Goulue. The bistro by famed restaurateur Jean C. Denoyer transported its French cuisine to the South Florida shores in late 2020 and has since been labeled one of the hottest restaurants in town.

A few months later, the Palm Beach outpost of chef Philippe Delgrange’s iconic French boîte, Le Bilboquet, opened to great fanfare. “Palm Beach is one of the most enchanting towns. Some of the best restaurants in the country have found second homes here,” says Dobi Trendafilova, managing partner of Le Bilboquet Palm Beach.

Whether you’re a Florida resident or visiting Palm Beach for the 2022 auction, you’re certain to find something to please your palate, from traditional French fine dining to chic al fresco fare.

Almond: With locations in New York and nearby Bridgehampton, this rustic French bistro opened in Palm Beach in early 2020. The decor pays homage to the eatery’s Long Island space, including the famous red Scalamandre zebra wallpaper, and executive chef Jason Weiner’s casually elegant menu features market-fresh ingredients. Classic dishes include steamed black mussels, roast chicken with hand-crushed potatoes and Le Grande macaroni and cheese. Raw bar selections range from a half-dozen oysters to the Plateau Royale with oysters, shrimp, lobster and more.

Swifty’s at The Colony Palm Beach evokes the spirit of the restaurant’s original New York City location with warm tropical South Florida touches.

La Goulue: Famous for its award-winning cheese soufflé, La Goulue welcomes guests with a lively French-influenced ambiance, including cushy leather banquettes, Majorelle chandeliers, pewter bar and wood paneling. The restaurant recently added a special menu for Apéro, the time of day in France between lunch and dinner to meet for cocktails and small plates. Brunch is available on weekends.

Le Bilboquet: Like its locations in Atlanta, GA; Dallas, TX; and Denver, CO — in addition to its flagship restaurant in New York City — Le Bilboquet Palm Beach serves a delicious menu of traditional French dishes, including Moules Marinières, Le Tartare de Boeuf and Le Chicken Paillard, as well as a selection of fresh seafood. A lush courtyard gives way to art deco French-chic decor that’s elegant yet relaxed, with velvet seating, art-lined walls and a wood-and-pewter bar. The Palm Beach restaurant is the only Le Bilboquet to offer breakfast, complete with omelets, fresh-pressed juices, just-baked croissants and perfect cappuccinos.

Sant Ambroeus: Still one of the toughest reservations to score, a meal at Sant Ambroeus is like a trip to Milan. The design was inspired by the “Gran Caffés” of 1950s Italy, mixing modern lines with rich mahogany and Italian stone. The menu includes such favorites as caviar, Pappardelle alla Milanese, Fettucini alla Bolongnese and Vitello Tonnato, alongside dishes inspired by the sea and a coffee bar and gelateria.

Swifty’s: This re-creation of New York’s now defunct Upper East Side celebrity gathering spot — itself an offshoot of the legendary Mortimer’s — has taken over The Colony Hotel’s pool patio, with a warm decor accentuated with a few tropical flourishes. Signature dishes include the Twin Burgers, Swifty’s Crab Cakes and Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf.

The Honor Bar: This casual take on the time-honored Palm Beach establishment, Palm Beach Grill, is the fourth Honor Bar location since the original

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
