You won't be running into any of your friends from Occupy Miami at the

Villa by Barton G. The one-percenter stronghold is heavily secured, full

of Versace's original designs, and

marked in more gold, mosaic, and fresco than the palace of a Russian

Czar. If anybody in Miami could take the house Gianni built, and make it

moreso, it's Barton G. The dude has polished the Ocean Drive mansion

till it shines brighter than a gold brick in the sunshine. Executive

Chef Jeff O'Neill takes that gold and uses it to plate some of the best

food in Miami. Here's what we saw in the kitchens and on the property.
