Bentley Residences Miami Hosted Art Basel Miami Exclusive Event With Bentley Motors
Developer, Gil Dezer and Four-time James Beard Award-Winning Celebrity Chef hosted a private seated dinner
SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FL – Bentley Residences hosted global conversations during Art Basel Miami with a highly curated and exclusive guest list at the sales gallery for Bentley Residences Miami, the first-ever Bentley-branded residential tower in the world. Gil Dezer of Dezer Development and four-time James Beard award-winning celebrity Chef Todd English hosted a private dinner with Bentley Motors’ Chris Cooke, head of design collaborations for Bentley Motors, and a handful of global media.
“Hosting an event with Chef Todd English during Art Basel Miami demonstrates the elevated sense of living we are creating for our residents,” said Gil Dezer, President of Dezer Development. “Bentley Residences will deliver a coveted level of exclusivity and privacy while incorporating luxuries ordinarily found in a five-star resort, like this above-and-beyond culinary concept.”
Recently unveiled, Chef Todd English will curate the menu and experience for the development’s private resident-only restaurant located on the lobby level with views of the resort-style pool and exposure of the ocean. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the private restaurant will extend its offerings to private events and poolside dining. Chef Todd English will personally appear at the private restaurant for select resident-only events, such as food and wine pairings and demonstrations. The menus will rotate seasonally, and a curated menu will also be available for in-residence dining. Known for his interpretation of rustic Mediterranean cuisine, English first rose to international fame after being named “National Rising Star Chef” in
1991 by the James Beard Foundation. His incredible talent and personability will inform the dining experience and ensure a personalized touch during every meal.
“Every aspect of Bentley Residences has been so thoughtfully designed to perfection and I’m incredibly honored for this opportunity to partner with Gil Dezer and further elevate the luxurious lifestyle through unique culinary creations for residents,” said Todd English. “We’re excited to provide a curated experience with rotating seasonal menus that will make dining at Bentley Residences a joy for residents and their guests.”
Boasting interiors by Bentley Motors, this private culinary experience will be one-of-a-kind, only to be enjoyed by the residents and their welcomed guests. Many of the fabrics and materials incorporated into the design of the dining spaces were inspired by high-end luxury Bentley vehicles, creating a connection and link to the prestigious automobile brand. For example, the high-gloss flooring is a nod to Bentley’s signature diamond patterning, which is also featured on the exterior architecture of the building. The interiors of the private restaurant combine a dark color palette and bold finishes for an upscale moody aesthetic. Forest green backlit banquettes create a sense of privacy within the room, and dramatic louvers cladding the walls give the space an air of drama. Ample bar seating is also available for a more relaxed and casual dining experience. In addition to the resident-only restaurant, Bentley Residences will also boast an impressive 20,000 square feet of exclusive amenities across the span of three levels. Some of the amenities include a whiskey and cigar lounge, wellness and revitalization spa, cinema, cabanas, and an oceanfront beauty salon. Amongst the most impressive amenities is the car elevator, also named the Dezervator, which can transport residents’ vehicles from the ground floor up to the privacy of their own home all without having to exit the car. The Dezervator along with the glass-ensconced garage allows residents to keep their prized cars in pristine condition and on display in their living rooms.
Situated at 18401 Collins Ave, the 62-story building in Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach neighborhood features 216 luxury condominiums, priced from $5.65 million. Residences will offer sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal, expansive outdoor terrace space with private pools, and state-of-the-art Gaggenau appliances throughout the kitchen. The tower is expected to be completed in 2027, and construction will begin in 2024.
