The Dutch, Miami Beach

By Conde Nast Traveler Wednesday, November 23 12:10 PM

When New York City's arty set flies south for Art Basel Miami Beach next month, it'll feel right at home at the new South Beach outpost of the Dutch, Andrew Carmellini's Soho restaurant. Located in the glitzy W South Beach, this cool spot combines driftwood beams with white brick and vintage photos of old Florida to create a homespun cocoon of class.

As at the Soho original, the focus here is a cross-cultural stew of culinary influences, from Morocco to Italy and the coastal South, sourced locally and tweaked to a Miami Latin palate. Think Florida avocado and citrus smoked pepper salad, lobster in a spicy coconut sauce, and sour orange pie for dessert. Cocktails nod to SoBe with pineapple-infused mezcal, house-made jerk bitters, and fresh-squeezed cantaloupe juice. A perfect toast to the avant-garde.

Hotel Williamsburg, Brooklyn

As if Brooklyn needed any more feathers in its hipness cap, the Hotel Williamsburg has just opened, promising a bed for luxe-seeking scenesters. Think panoramic rooftop bar, buzzy restaurant, and a lot of tattoos and facial hair digging the summertime swim club.

Half of the 64 rooms have Manhattan skyline views, and all pop with a mod-meets-vintage decor of orange leather against woodsy wallpaper. Rooms also feature free vinyl to play on Crosley record players. And like a good Brooklynite, the borough's first full-service luxury boutique hotel is thinking local: uniforms are by Brooklyn Industries, and there's a signature suds on tap, brewed by Brooklyn Brewery just around the corner. Even the coffee, delivered 24/7 in retro green Stanley thermoses, is roasted by the oldest family-owned shop in New York.

Horizon & Co. Titanic Expedition Cruises

A cruise to see the world's most famous shipwreck on the 100th anniversary of its sinking? Yeah, that gave us pause, too. But if you're willing to tempt fate, you can get up close to the disaster that launched a thousand Celine Dion remixes.

Horizon & Co.'s 15-day Titanic Expedition Cruises, departing from Halifax, Nova Scotia, include a dive 12,500 feet below the surface in a Russian Mir submersible piloted by members of the Titanic movie's expedition team. Back on the surface, there will be lectures and seminars, a memorial service, and as on all cruise ships, lots and lots of food. Sorry, Leonardo DiCaprio isn't part of the package.

Horizon & Co. Titanic Expedition Cruises, from $12,498 per person (excluding the dive) and $66,257 per person (including the dive). 2012 sailings depart July 12, July 27, and August 6
