Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

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.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
