The Black River Caviar Tradition

It’s a family business. The Alcalde family business, and it’s turned into an international enterprise that celebrates superior quality in every aspect of it. From the unique care of their breeding process to the immaculate service and presentation, Black River Caviar’s sturgeon roe strives to deliver a natural and flavorful high-quality experience.

The world-renowned Esturiones del Rio Negro has been farming their products in Uruguay since 1996. The roe is made and exported by request, and it is cultivated within the standards set by the Black River Caviar Master. These standards include size, color, firmness and texture, and of course the flavor and taste in respect to saltiness.

Black River Caviar’s ultimate goal is excellence, and that includes giving their clients nothing but an absolute quality experience. Because these exclusive products are available locally, you can request an order from Mary Mahoney by calling (1)561.655.8288.

Code Coco: More than a watch, a jewel inspired by the codes of Chanel
The clasp, the Quilt and the Diamond

An extremely rare and exclusive Chanel watch collection is making its Palm Beach debut during the Annual International Watch Fair at Hamilton Jewelers. A highlight of the show is Code Coco, featured above.

Code Coco incorporates Chanel’s chanel watchthree iconic attributes: the clasp, the quilt and the diamond. The Clasp is named Mademoiselle. It comes from the 2.55 handbag, and seals the watch with an exclusive flourish. The Quilted motif has been a Chanel emblem since 1955. The chocolate motif criss-crosses suits in fashion shows and on handbags, watches and jewelry.

Of all gemstones, the Diamond was Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite. She loved the graphic beauty and clarity of the diamond. In her own words: “If I have chosen the diamond, it is because it represents, in its density, the greatest value in the smallest volume.”

Specially Curated collection of rare and exclusive Chanel watches

This extraordinary collection was specially curated for Hamilton Jewelers from Chanel locations globally. A beautiful and rare selection of timepieces from the High Jeweled and Mademoiselle Privé will also be on display.

When it comes to Stone Crabs, Bigger is always Better….

Every year, the return of the Stone Crabs marks the beginning of the Palm Beach season. Hurricane Irma wasn’t able to stop the festivities at Meat Market Palm Beach. Their stone crabs’ over the charts-sized claws are perfectly cracked. As a result, this allows seafood lovers to savor generous bites of the succulent meat without shell interruption. On Tuesdays, pair this delicacy with your favorite bottle of Sauvignon Blanc or Champagne at half price.

Wine Tuesdays extended through the season

Due to so many wine connoisseurs returning to their winter homes, Meat Market is extending Wine Tuesdays for the duration of the season. A selection of wines from Meat Market’s extensive wine cellar will be offered at half price. Whether you opt for ordering plump oysters and monster-size shrimp at the bar during Happy Hour, or my favorite–a Tomahawk to share in the dining room, Sommelier Jonathan Negrin will suggest the perfect complement to your choice.
