THE CHOW FACTOR
Located mere steps from the Dream Stage, which hosts live music and entertainment throughout the year, seven new culinary options at American Dream’s Food Hall lure passersby with scents of French cheeses, fried pot stickers, freshly baked pastries, and more. At Vinoteca, an avant garde restobar, wine snobs can taste their way through 64 carefully curated varieties via a self serve machine. The vino is complemented by a refined Italian menu of gourmet paninis and charcuterie boards. At Venessa’s Dumpling House, creative Asian plates will satisfy the umamidigging palettes this side of the Orient, with offerings of steamed dumplings, Peking Duck, sesame pancake sandwiches, and several noodle dishes. To fuel your sugar rush, the luxury confectionery brand Lady M doles out their iconic mille crêpes that marry French pastry techniques with Japanese sensibilities.
Forward thinking yet eternally timeless, Dolce and Gabbana have always had their fingers on the pulse of future trends. For the brand’s recent logo collection, the Italian duo turned up the volume, merging graphic graffiti with the quintessential DG motif in what they called “a black and white universe.” Styled for the future, the unique collection explores pure lines, precise shapes, and immaculate finishes through a flurry of experimental fabrics, prints, and contrasting textures. Silk charmeuse dresses in the brand’s signature symbols, heavy duty hounds tooth coats, sequined jersey sets, and a lynx effect faux fur vest offer a world of possibilities for the urban sophisticate. Even the accessories, dominated by the go big or go home mantra, feature bold logo prints, studded embellishments, and rhinestones galore, foreshadowing a future of good times. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue at American Dream
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
Surrounded by stunning views, from turquoise pools to NYC’s famed skyline, the Skyboxes at the always 82 degrees indoor DreamWorks Water Park are where the party’s at this fall. Curated by NJ transplant and designer extraordinaire Jonathan Adler, the Skyboxes feature three unique styles of décor. Accessible by a wristband activated door, each private suite is adorned in Adler’s signature aesthetic and decked out with amenities like flatscreen TVs, access to a VIP hot tub, refrigerator, and food pickup and delivery from the comfort of the couches which happen to be upholstered in Schumacher fabrics. Each suite boasts a different theme: the Capri, ornamented with blue, cloud shaped couches; Bali, designed with a tropical flair; and Tulum, an ode to Mexico’s modernism.
