AMBER GIBSON Writer ERIC LEVIN Photographer Artist and entrepreneur Eric Levin grew his photography business from modest beginnings, gaining recognition peddling his artistic works off the street. Now operating in NYC and Boston, Eric's Elevin Studios is a hive of photo and filmmaking activity and an incubator for young talent. Eric studied at Clark University and L'Université de Paris- Sorbonne and enjoys travel, adventure, and astrophysics. Behind the story: "Giuliana ("G Force," page 98) had really great energy and was up for anything. We got to talking a bit about her son, and she even gave me some parenting tips (I'm going to be a dad in March)!" Personal style: "Since I'm not much a suit guy day-to-day, nothing beats nice shoes, in-fashion jeans, and a beautiful watch (I have my eye on a sweet Franck Muller). For me, the trick is to care, but not really look like it. I love the Varvatos aesthetic, too— rock 'n' roll formalwear." …WITHOUT WHOM THIS ISSUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE Amber Gibson covers food, wine, and luxury travel for Four Seasons Magazine, Saveur, Hemispheres, and American Way. Her favorite adven- tures have included snowmobiling and dogsledding in Colorado, spearfishing in Punta Mita, and dining with Francis Mallmann at his home in Uruguay. Champagne, dark chocolate, and gelato are her biggest weaknesses. Behind the story: "I love tasting menus ("Tasting Menu Titans," page 50) because I don't have to make any decisions. At a truly great restaurant, it's the best way to let a chef tell his or her story." Go-to restaurant: "Cafe Spiaggia has been a favorite for more than a decade. I usually manage to eat healthfully until dessert. The pizzelle ice cream sandwich gets me every time." Plans for spring: "Maybe traveling to the Northern Territory in Australia— I'm excited to see the real Outback." RESERVATIONS: (877) 771-7031 HOTEL: (312) 750-9012 122 W.
