This double-decker, indoor-outdoor mall, one of the country’s most prestigious and pricey, hawks the fanciest stuff from the most chichi brands going: Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Harry Winston, Gucci, Agent Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Chloé, Diane Von Furstenberg, Stella McCartney, Hublot, Tourneau, and many others, sandwiched between Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Well-dressed shoppers stroll covered walkways amid lush greenery, and pause for coffee or a meal at several good cafes and topnotch restaurants such as Carpaccio and Makoto (with some of South Florida’s most amazing sushi; the sampler is a true work of art). Parking costs $1.50 an hour with a validated ticket, $5 without (you can stamp your own at the Saks entrance even without making a purchase).
