At Bal Harbour Smiles, Dr. Ari Benmergui and his knowledgeable staff keep vigil over grins with preventive and cosmetic dental and periodontal services. Full-mouth digital x-rays glimpse deeper into jawlines than routine exams and cleanings can to pinpoint deep-rooted cavities or baby teeth that refuse to come out and play. Friendly employees steer patrons toward the most appropriate treatment for their personal woes, whether it be teeth whitening or CEREC crowns and fillings, which blend seamlessly into ivory surroundings, much like a cloud at a marshmallow factory.
These days, it's hard to know what exactly you're eating when your eating beef?even if you cooked it yourself. The modern meat industry pumps their cattle full of antibiotics and hormones that make the meat seem more appealing while being worse for your health. Besides that, they don't feed the cows their natural diet of grass and clover, opting for cheaper corn and grain instead without even letting them use ketchup. Gaucho Ranch aims to change all that. Drawing on the old gaucho tradition of South America, they import their beef from a family farm in Uruguay, where it is guaranteed to be raised entirely naturally and fed exactly what it wants to eat. The result are beautiful cuts of beef that are lower in cholesterol and fat, higher in Omega 3s and Vitamin E, and delicious on top of everything else.
The rich and complex flavors inside a cup of Cafe Britt's gourmet coffee start with a simple bean. For more than 29 years, Cafe Britt's buyers have searched for crops with an ideal genetic profile, farms with beneficial ecosystems, and beans with magic properties, and have learned to harness at least the first two elements. In Costa Rica, Peru and Colombia, Cafe Britt has built strong relationships with farmers and maintained fair-trade practices at every step of the way.
With those beans, Cafe Britt blends signature gourmet coffees such as Colombian Dark Roast and Costa Rica Espresso Roast. The shops also complement coffee with gourmet cookies, chocolates, and other treats.

Although online ordering is not available for this Groupon, regular customers enjoy the benefit of choosing items from Farm Stores’ website and designating a pickup time.
Kouzíne puts a local spin on Latin American and European treats, gourmet meats, specialty condiments, and more. Before heading to a holiday party, pick up a hefty hostess gift such as the Argentine wines and jellies basket ($45), which comes stuffed with two bottles, two wine-infused jellies, and an unofficial pass to the front of the bobbing-for-apples line. The two-tier Kouzíne appetizer and wine tower ($49.50) includes a Camino 7 Lagos malbec from Argentina, cold cuts, cheeses, and green olives. The Latin sensation ($56.50) displays a combination of Latin American wines and delicacies in a traditional brown wicker basket known to ward off evil plastic bags. To circumvent possible pantry claustrophobia, bypass goodie bundles and instead peruse Kouzíne's selection of loose wines, cheese accompaniments, and artisan fruits.
