Million Dollar Listing, Naples

A multi-million dollar property, Mediterra CC, Naples, Fla.

Life is funny sometimes~ I'm working on a property for a top realtor here in town, and then I see the program "Million Dollar Listing, Los Angeles" ~ which is just too funny.  My client handles pretty much listing only properties over a million dollars ...since you don't get too much in Naples for under that. 
So, last night I had a fabulous burrata for my first course, at Cote d'Azur, one of the many fine French dining establishments here in town.  I could have stopped with that, since it was so heavenly.  I was just surprised that the server refused to ask the chef to prepare a simple endive and beet salad to order for a special request, but I suppose those kind of things would need to be asked for in advance.  They also do not have a full liquor license, which was surprising.  So you would think that perhaps a sommelier would have encouraged us to order at least one bottle of wine...hmmm...
Enjoy!  DF *****

    1. K,
      Yes!....there are lots of hedge funders living behind these hedges, LOL! Even one whose name is Jim Hedges IV...who mostly lives in NYC now. Naples has become, in the last twenty years, very similar to southern California, like Newport Beach crossed with La Jolla, crossed with Rancho Mirage. At lot of the new homes are being built to look very Santa Barbara mission style, as well as upscale condominiums. It's lovely, the only downside is that Naples has been discovered, and so it's growing at an alarming pace. All I ever hear is bulldozers and private jets!
