Steven Haas probably knows better than anyone what draws people to Miami and Miami Beach and what will keep them coming. He just stepped down as Chair of the Greater Miami Visitors and Convention Bureau. His forté is hospitality, especially in dining. So naturally we met up at Jack's Home Cooking, a new place in the Design District area he is helping birth. The man who invented Miami Spice started working in his father's deli as a youngster and eventually became general manager of The Forge, Miami Beach's famed luxury restaurant, frequented by the famous and the infamous. We talked about wine, food, and the changing demographics of South Florida tourism.
