ENJOY An Abundance of Culinary Ingenuity at CHINA GRILL, Fort Lauderdale, on the Intracoastal
THIS review begins with the audacious vision of a 35-year-old New York "FOODIE" who opened his first China Grill Restaurant on Manhattan's 53rd Street in 1987 -- and went on to win Esquire Magazine's "Best New Restaurant" & Zagat's NYC "Most Popular Nightspot".

The company has redefined the word "Restaurant" with Culinary ingenuity from world-class chefs, transporting diners to exotic worlds crafted by internationally renowned designers.

China Grill Classics abound:
Share a sweet soy-marinated skirt steak with tempura shiitake mushrooms and wok-sautéed lo mein noodles; Grilled Garlic Shrimp in a red curry coconut sauce with black fettuccini; Pan-seared spicy tuna with avocado sashimi; Shanghai Lobster with ginger & curry with crispy spinach; and Duck 2-ways.

An extraordinarily talented Staff in Restaurant Number 26: Jeffrey Chodorow should strongly consider them for Number 28, which appears to be: MOSCOW! WOW!

Enter: The leading authority on indulgent, healthy, luxurious LIVING!

Corporate Chef Scott Uehlein -- for the 30 year old desert facility in Tucson Arizona, CANYON RANCH, and now in Massachusetts, Orlando, Las Vegas, The Queen Mary, has brought "BUZZ TO THE BEACH"!

With its 70,000 square foot Spa, which specializes in Wellness, Beauty, Fitness, Medical and Healthy Gourmet Cuisine, their Castle on Collins in Miami Beach has provided the South Florida community with a Spa & Wellness Center that is unparalleled: 54 treatment rooms -- 80 minute Massages including gently headed basalt stones -- lubricated in oil -- and an array of hydrotherapy waters, thermal cabins, soaking tubs and saunas called AQUAVANA.

Chef Scott's CRAB CAKES -- made with the Chesapeake Bay Backfin JUMBO lump -- was one of the best -- ever! And it was prepared at a SPA. How unbelieveable is that?

To meet Chef Scott, you will be thoroughly impressed with both his Vision -- and his Passion. He has been invited to JAPAN on three separate occasions to teach the Japanese chefs how to use American ingredients, to learn of the health benefits and to negate our "FAST food/processed food" image.

CANYON RANCH is the only 10-time Winner of the Conde Nast Traveler magazine's Reader Choice Awards for "Best Destination Spa". DO YOU KNOW HOW FORTUNATE THAT MAKES EVERYONE LIVING IN AMERICA'S EAST COAST, AS WELL AS THE EXPLODING SOUTH?
